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 went to the Christmas shopping meetup of my local Lolita community last saturday, and it was fun! I really am unhappy with how I looked, but the important thing was we all had a good time. We met at cosplay n charm, and then went for dim sum, then went to a bakery and the local Korean market! I got some cute things for my roommate as thanks for dropping me off, and broke my low carb diet for the occasion. I'm trying to be good now, though.

Pictures below the cut )

I'm totally getting a wig soon because my hair is just not volumous enough for Lolita. I'm only disappointed that I can't wear both a wig and a hat. My head is too big. :( There's a lot I wanna improve on this outfit but it'll come in time. I just won a beautiful silver chiffon JSK (my first one!) and I'm excited to get things together for it by the January New Years meetup!

But for now, I gotta focus. There's a lot still to get done before Christmas and Ikkicon, despite me not having any new costumes to make. There's repairs on Decus for [personal profile] insidious, washing Phinks's wig, making the cover to Leorio's briefcase, and finishing getting the gifts for my family ready for Christmas!

AND I'm in a fandom icon exchange, which I'm almost done with but I wanted to make one extra icon for good measure. Guh if I can just find the time. I still owe Christmas cards to a few people, too. This time of year always kicks my ass into gear being creative but I also overstretch myself. I've got so many ideas and things that built up while I was sewing cosplay all year instead, though.

I've been playing a bit of .hack//Fragment in offline mode while I get the hang of it. My computer severely lags, but I really want to join the few online players that are still around. I got a new controller (it had to be analog to work correctly, the bluetooth one I had to return), and I'm going to save up next month to get a new laptop. It may take me until March to afford it though. Guh.

And once January rolls around I've really got to start working on our A-kon cosplays.

It's 5 though, so I gotta go. I'll update more later!

I took a break from facebook and I still don't want to go back. I know any social media is likely to depress me, but I still want an outlet of some kind.

I've had a week off with no sewing whatsover, and it's been great. Enough to recharge and feel the itch to make something new, though. Maybe this time I can prevent myself from burying myself in too much to do, because then I get overwhelmed and have no creativity at all.

[personal profile] insidious has been playing .hack//GU and since I've never played them, it's so much fun to finally know the story outside of the ROOTS anime. I feel so bad for Haseo though, everyone uses him. I actually grew to like pretty much everyone in this game though (Even Atoli I don't hate anymore), but Ovan is still a butt. :|

I'm not sure when, but I plan to cosplay both Zelkova and Silabus. I have a weird OTP of Silabus x Haseo too lolol.

Anime North Texas is in a week, and we just got back from Nebraskon from last weekend (which was also a lot of fun). I've got to start sewing Kortopi (Hunter x Hunter) this weekend because I'll be wearing that while [personal profile] insidious borrows Feitan. I'm also bringing Kurapika and possibly Spanner (Hitman Reborn).

Also, I saw Dr. Strange with [livejournal.com profile] togabitoion and [livejournal.com profile] runegrey and it was a heck of a lot better than I ever thought it would be. I really enjoyed it!!

Other than that, I've kept my mind occupied with playing Sailor Moon Drops. That game is addicting.
