I went to the meet and it was a lot of fun! I rode with my friend Jhericca who took Bree and Stephanie with us, too. We all helped set up, and it went really quickly and the venue was nice for being a rental space tied to a medical center. I wish I had taken more pictures, but they did have a photographer there so I got a few of my coord thanks to him.

This past Monday I started working on patterning [personal profile] insidious's Campanella suit (Ao no Kiseki/Trails in the Sky). This is a tracing off of her Leorio suit, so there are extra seams, and I'm starting to change what lines up where. I'm still unhappy with it so tonight I'm going to re-trace it onto more scrap fabric and try drafting a 2nd take.

I really gotta crack down on myself and work at getting some stuff done this week. We'll be going to the fabric store saturday and I'll pick up my fabric for Bleublanc.

Last night [ profile] togabitoion and I went to Dave and Busters to play DDR! We got sidetracked by a lot of other games though, lol. She was an ace at Time Crisis when we used to go to the arcade, and Time Crisis 5 was out, so she had to play. It had a new mechanism for ducking left or right, though, and I caught this shot at an unfortunate moment. XD

DDR has worn me out, but I just need to caffinate tonight and carry on.

I'm sad my guild/clan in SMT:Imagine has dropped down to 3 people. We had 5 at one point. I try to be on whenever I can! If you see me or Ue around, come join us!

Sorry for no update on Ikkicon. I have so many photos. A ton of them are my roommate though, and I told her I would wait to post them because I know she'll want to remove any she is not happy with. I snap so many candid shots, it's only fair I let people root out any unflattering ones. So... eventually I'll post them! It's been a stressful week for her, though, with work. Maybe after this weekend.

I've been playing more Shin Megami Tensei: Imagine, though! )

In other news, I got the blouse and shoes for my coord for this weekend, and the blouse doesn't fit my arms at all. It's really disappointing, that's the second one I've bought. I am going to have to start asking for the sleeve measurements because I'm ridiculously huge-armed, while being flat as a board so well fitting shirts are hard to find. Not to mention, going above a size 16 makes finding something cute and lolita themed difficult enough.

[personal profile] insidious took me thrifting to find a better blouse last weekend. We met up with another one of my friends and all of us found useful stuff for either cosplay or fashion, so that was productive.

There was also my sister's birthday, and hanging out with [ profile] rubyredrose and coming up with a keto recipe for vegetable soup. Using mostly green vegetables may make it low carb, but it's also not very filling AT ALL, and yet to keep it vegetarian friendly (she is), we had to find something besides beans (too high carb) for protein. So she introduced me to nutritional yeast, which... despite the gross name, made the soup delicious and creamy and actually had a lot of protein in it. Now I have a new ingredient in my arsenal, and because I love food so much, that means a lot to me. *_* My family still struggles to accept that I'm giving up sugar except for special occasions. They either push things at me or criticize my choice to keep diet soda as my one vice. My stepmom even said regular soda was better for me than the diet... and if she paid attention at all to what I'm doing she'd know that one normal coke would destroy my carb count for the week and thus negate any progress maintaining keto. *sigh* Everything is bad for you in some way, it's about moderation. This is how I manage to stay on my diet. I've lost weight and I'm not going to change it just because it makes some people more hungry.

That... turned into a rant. Sorry lol.

Also I saw Rogue One last week, and it was fantastic. ;_; I was really into Star Wars when I was younger, and this is sucking me back in.

I got super sick over Christmas, though not enough to ruin it. I just really was afraid I was going to end up with strep. THANKFULLY it was just a bad sinus infection/ear infection, and once I started meds on Monday night, I immediately already started feeling better. I stayed home all day yesterday and just slept. I wanted to play some games, but I was good and didn't. And then I got up in the evening and started working on [personal profile] insidious's briefcase for Leorio.

Leorio's briefcase )

It came out great for doing it in one night. It smells like E6000 though and I'm hoping one day is enough for it to solidify and air out in the garage. @_@ If not, our car ride is going to be awfulllll. Ugh.

I'm trying to get my head back into doing things and keeping up with stuff. I've got LJ here, the games I want to play, the holidays (thankfully over now), but still some cards I am late on mailing out that I still have to draw, and a con to prepare for. Once Ikkicon is over, I wanna say I'll have some downtime. But I do want to get a head start on A-kon cosplays. So I guess the plan will be to A: take my sewing machine in for repairs, and B: clean house while it's gone, and C: relax and play some video games until I can get started on cosplays again. Then I'll be posting regular sewing updates.

I got my character on the private Chinese Shin Megami Tensei: Imagine server up to level 23 over the last week, though! Check him out!

Can you tell I like .hack//? )

If you want to play too, check out this forum post!
