I said I'd post more, I even went and friended a bunch of people, and then vanished. The truth is, I hit internet burnout pretty bad. I couldn't convince myself I hadn't, that I'd be back the next day or so. Before I knew it, a month had gone by. x_x IDK if it's depression or anxiety or what, but I didn't even touch my MMOs, and haven't gone back yet. I want to. I will. x_x Just need to find the time. Work has also been rough.

Anyway, I should update on some things here.

I recently went to Mini A-kon, and got a few pics. My roommate really got me into the Persona 4 anime, so we went as Yuu (her) and Yousuke (me).

Persona! )

I was really excited to see some other cosplayers from fandoms I like. I've seen that Machi around before, they're cool! And while I haven't played any of the Persona games, I recognized the outfit the other guy had on and that was cool.

Aselia-con is coming up this next weekend, and I'm really excited for it! I don't really have anything new except for a scrapped together cosplay of Anise in her 'Not a Kid' costume, but I'm bringing back Brute from Dawn of the New World, and Leia from Xillia. I had to take in Leia's belt, and Brute needed some repairs, and tonight I still need to add lace to the top I got for Anise, it's just something I got on Amazon that works pretty well for it.

I've actually been sewing wefts into [personal profile] insidious's Machi wig for A-kon. I really have to get off my ass in the coming days and bust out as much work as I can get done on everything. I have 2 suits to make, a coat and cape for myself, 3 wigs to style, 4 if you count my own but I'm not sure entirely how much it needs it, and a track suit and some baggy simple garments. I'm not all alone in this. [personal profile] insidious is going to be sewing anything she can, but I have to get it to a point where we can collaborate, and that means actually starting. Guh. I'm a lazy ass.

I'll write more later, but that's what's been up! If you're going to Aseliacon, see you there!

I'm sitting outside the bookstore waiting til the last possible minute to go buy my math book, and online access. I really don't want to know what it's going to cost. e_e I was so giddy over getting my first paycheck I did a little dance, but it's slowly starting to dwindle away.

Last year I bought some manga on yahoo auctions, when I shouldn't have. But it was half the whole set of Twin Signal, in really good condition. I used to just read the copies that my old roommate had, but I needed my own, especially since I really want to try and figure out how to translate it (even if it takes 10 years). But anyway, they sat at the warehouse for months, and of course, when I had another bout of stupid a couple of weeks ago, I blew even more money on a set of Heat Guy J art books that were sold as a set. Those are rare. Doubt my intelligence, but I'd kick myself forever if I let them go considering what they cost individually and how hard they were to find. u_u

So now that I actually have legitimate funds, I've requested shipping. I'm so excited for them to arrive! ;___; And my Wedding Peach CDs are in the warehouse too, and the playbill from the Glass Mask musical. I wish I could have seen that, but I don't even know if/how/where you would get a copy. I'll live vicariously through that little piece of paper.

Speaking of Glass Mask, or rather, acting, I was looking at the LARP list for Otakon yesterday. I haven't done it in years, but if [personal profile] insidious can't go this year, my backup plan for activities is probably to sign up for it, unless they announce a guest I really want to see, and then LARPing takes backseat to that. But man, I miss doing that. It's so much fun. It takes me a good day to get into a role for a character, and shake off my nerves, and I'm sure my acting is atrocious, but I love it. I just usually end up cosplaying with friends instead, because I don't want to do it on my own. But I still haven't decided on who to play. I guess I'll wait and see. Nothing's set in stone.
