Katsucon is coming up so soon @____@ It's really stressful. We're leaving two weeks from today, and we still have so much to get done. Luckily, most of the wigs have been styled except for Magical Unicorn Princess's, and we're helping moonlightlady14 do the collars tomorrow. I keep meaning to post the Hotaro wig tutorial... I promise I'll get on that soon, hyoutan! Please don't stress, you know I love you! ♥
While I was sick, I was pondering how NyQuill is a higher alcohol proof than some commercial alcoholic beverages... so taking NyQuill is akin to taking shots. XD;;;; You can tell how well my brain was functioning when I was sick. I'm so cool.
Hm. I feel as if I had more to say. Kime pictures will, again, be up when I have the time. Between internal Study Abroad apps, Temple's apps, Internships, and grants on top of actual school work, I'm a bit swamped, and lion_crest eats most of my free time. Alas.
Jazz ensemble audition on Thursday was... interesting. But I got in, so I suppose I should be happy. I'm withholding statement until rehearsals start.
Submitted both my Art Major declaration and my Dance Independent Major proposal... hope all goes well. I'll submit my internal Study Abroad application as soon as my major declaration goes through and my Temple one ASAP. I have to wait for my signature thing to go through so that I can sign the online documents, write one more essay, and get my internal form signed... but I should be able to submit by the beginning of February. Here's to hoping.
Did a Kime shoot yesterday in the dark, and got 15 good shots out of it. Thanks to moonlightlady14 for photographing for me. My wig looks really blonde because of the weird lighting, but other than that, I think they came out well. I'll post them as soon as I can think straight again...
Now to get stuff done before sleeping... @____@
However, I meant to post a progress picture of Kime before and never did, so here it is! It's a god awful picture of me; I'm ugly AND unphotogenic as it is, and then add in the fact that my makeup makes me face look strangely white in pictures recently for unknown reasons and you get one freaking attractive picture. >___>;;; But... ignore my ugly face and look at the costume, yes? I just need the wig now, and then I'll take some real, non-scary pictures.
( Cosplay! )
Also, I got to see hyoutan for the first time in forever! She's finally back from Australia/Japan (and by the way, I'm sick with envy, you. >___>) and we hung out and drank and talked about fandom and watched videos, and it was generally enjoyable. Also, she is to be worshipped, because she got me...
( THIS. )
Thank you, hyoutan. I worship the ground you walk on now. ♥ My baby and my baby!OTP shall light up my life every time I look at them.
Hmm... sleepy. Bedtime, I suppose...
[EDIT] I'm possibly more amused than I should be that the third comment on Nagayan's most recent post is asking for a two-person photo of him and Tuti... XD;;;
Also, I fscking want this really badly.

In other news, I have everything for Kimeru besides the fedora, the tie, and the wig, and I hope to get the tie and fedora tomorrow with yomimashou! I also need the shirt altered, but chiachiaamichan's mom is amazing and will sew bias tape for me and I love her. ♥
So, yesterday, while Christmas shopping, I bought the black skinny jeans for the Kime cosplay. I found a good fedora and a pair of boots, too, so then all I need is the pink tie and the shirt to alter, and, of course, the wig. I really need to check to see if we're doing the Sailor Moon cosplay all three days of Katsucon or just Saturday and Sunday, since it would be a hassle to get into it after driving there. I'd like to do Kimeru then, since the costume would be comfortable enough to travel in and I could just put on the wig when we got there.
If this is the case, is there anyone else going to Katsucon who'd do actors with me on Friday? onewhomust, genicheerios, I'm mostly asking you?
Off to work on more Pillar Pair~
My entire studying experience has been to the dulcet tones of Kimeru (and as I result, I now have Koishite Kimeru stuck in my head...) I feel like I shouldn't have done that, but I guess he's easy to study to. XD; I tried NEWS, but I kept getting distracted, and listening to Hyoutei B made my ears hurt >___>; So... more Kime it is. XD;
Relatedly, I was thinking of cosplaying Kimeru for a con sometime in the near future. Would anyone be interested in cosplaying an actor with me? I'd love a Nagayan or Yanagi, but anyone from first cast or who Kime's been known to hang around with would be great (lol Daisuke with his gross facial hair?). I know yomimashou has mentioned maybe wanting to, and I'm fairly certain most people on my flist who cosplay with think I'm a crazy person, but maybe genicheerios, onewhomust, I'm kind of looking at you. XD; Or anyone who goes to the same cons as me. I just really wanna do it, even for half a day, and it would be more fun with more friends :D
For reference, I'm thinking of doing this here outfit, so... it doesn't really have any affect on what anyone else wears. XD;;; Just... because I think it would be fairly easy to do. ^^;;; And I have to find a mullet wig... >>;;; But on the bright side, my Kimeru's arm impressions are amazing. XD;
...on that note, off to study Japanese.
( Ouran High School Host Club gathering~ )
And then there was cake, but I can't find the pictures on my photobucket account because I have so fucking many otakon pictures, so I apologize for that. Please check redkittychan's lj for more pictures!
And, for the record:
And yes, my lj-cut text is really lame this year but I totally can't think of anything else. XD;
( omaera Inner Harbour ni giri-giri )
That's all for now! Sometime later will come out two shoots, but for now I'm really tired and this is a really crappy post... sorry!! TT_____TT;; Hope you can bring yourself to read it anyway...
( ♫ ~HAND IN HAND~ ♫ )
Fuji Syuusuke: chiachiaamichan
Fuji Yuuta: yomimashou
Mizuki Hajime: faded_lace
... I don't think I'm like, evil enough to be Mizuki. I have to work on smiling deviously. And not looking fat and ugly. XO;
Also for the first time, I actually photoshopped these pictures before posting them, so there's a result that I'm happy with. Usually, since we do our shoots during and after Otakon, I'm way too tired to do anything besides just post and make a con report. Since I had the time and energy this time, I've made the lighting and colours a little nicer and things, so I'm actually rather happy with the result. Of course, most of the credit goes to redkittychan's photography, but I did I little editing~
Um, I'm going to post the two shoots in two different posts, because there's a crap ton of pictures. redkittychan took over 300 and then weeded quite a few out, and then I got even pickier for this, but there's still quite a few. So first I'll post the Yuugiou shoot (even though we did it second) because there's fewer pictures, then I'll post the Prince of Tennis shoot.
( I am a human and not a machine. )
That's all, because this wasn't even supposed to be a real shoot. XD;; We just wanted to pull the costumes together and stuff. But... as always, we got a little carried away. XD;
And, of course, for reference:
Also, I got lots of good stuff for Easter! I got a bunch of candy and goodies from my aunt, and my family got me candy as well, and new slippers and socks and this AMAZING shirt from Delia's that says "Out is the new in" and I love it to death. ♥♥♥
Now, onto the stuff anyone really cares about... the photos and youtube link for Hare Hare Yukai! Please watch our performance here!
( And here are some more posed photos that I didn't take at 1 am in the dark... )
Man, it's so nice out today. I wish we could have played tennis...
( I was supposed to be Yuki, but since I didn't have a wig, I didn't bother with being IC... )
Also, I can't decide if "Maria Holic," the thing we're watching in anime club now, is offensive or amusing... err, it's kind of in the Katy Perry sort of way, actually. XD;
Actually, that's not 100% true. I wanted to practice binding and make sure everything still fit (since last time I wore the costume, it was '04, lolol). Everything did indeed still fit (obviously), though the shirt is a bit short since I bought it five and a half years ago and short stuff was in back then... oh well. The vest isn't entirely accurate, either, since it's made of fleece and not like, poofy stuff, but I was working on a budget. Don't tell anyone. XD;
As for binding, it definitely helped, but not entirely, and it was a bit tough to breathe. Still, I think I can get flatter if I practice more and get it tighter, especially if I have help. And it isn't so bad in the Mokuba costume, the vest kind of covers it... For Hakkai, hopefully it will make the shirt fit better ;; I'm thinking of sewing myself into it this year, or having someone sew me into it... because the way that it's cut is a ridiculous hassle.
Well, not like anyone cares about any of this, anyway XD;;; So, uh. Here are the photos :D;;
( Mokuba shoot! )
For some reason, my camera takes really crappy pictures recently. Like, pixelated and with some random white noise sometimes. So, uh. Someone else should bring their camera to Otakon, because srsly. This is beginning to annoy me.
And, for the record, my hair doesn't always look like that. I teased it up a little bit for the pictures, and I'm planning on teasing it some more for the actual cosplay, because Mokuba's hair is filled with wtf. But my hair irl is not so crazy. XD;;
I still need to make the necklace, but I think me and V are going to do that together sometime or something? And I need to put the buttons on the collar because accuracy is full of yay. And find some gay sneakers. XD;;; But yeah this costume is so easy I feel like it's a crime or something. XD;
ALSO. Icon is semi relevant?!
One word of warning: I apologize in advance, my camera was on super slow shutter setting, and a lot of them got blurry. I tried to fix them a bit in photoshop but... only so much you can do. すみません!!
Also, of course, BL [girls cosplaying it XD] and stuff inside.
And now, without further ado:
( Anyone and everyone are forbidden from interfering with their activities! )
Hope you enjoyed! XD
Finished my paper on Plato and Lord of the Flies... Now I just have to look over and edit it... I think it's pretty all right, though, if a little redundant. Then again, the professor said that it was better to be redundant than to lose the reader, so. Yay. I'm basically done.
Now, to memorize me some Japanese... Got an email from Koike-sensei that said we had to know all the katakana by tuesday. -_____-;;; She closed it with "Katakana is fun!" though, which was about the cutest thing ever, so I'm not so angry... XD;;; I still hope the thing with Kobayashi-sensei [who will from here forward be referred to as "Kobasen"... because I'm too much of a geek not to XD] wasn't graded... -___-;; I made such a fool of myself. Funny that she's from Hockessin, too, though... haha.
Have to buy tickets tomorrow for NYAF... Cosplay's going to be awesome though!
...so not looking forward to ballet ensemble tomorrow morning. That dance is like an acid trip or something...
Have been listening to the new Minekura music nonstop... lulz.
( dorm room )
It looks cleaner now than it did when I took the photos...
In other news, everything is all set up with my classes and I'm signed up to work in Erdman, though I'll get my hours later. Things are finally settling down... We need more fans though... ugh.
I got V's package in the mail today, and the armbands look beautiful! I think I may try to throw on Tokitoh again later and take a few more pictures. We'll see.
[EDIT] ( By the way, here is whiteboard!Niles, in case anyone cares. )
What Prince Of Tennis Character Are You?

|You scored as Shuichiro Oishi|
You are Oishi! You are kind and intelligent. You care for peoples injuries and feelings. You are part of the Golden Pair.
Haha. I'm Oishi. The only thing I answered totally positively was "Are you a member of the Golden Pair" XD;;; Because I TTLY AM!!!
LULZ I move out in 2 days.
Also, I threw on Tokitoh, without the armband, because V just mailed them to Bryn Mawr, and took a few pics. I drew on the big eyelashes, too, but not as big as I will for the con... So here are the pics. :D;
