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!

I went back to my old icon journal and realized someone had commented on my Garsiv icon set from the Prince of Persia Sands of Time movie. Now I'm watching that movie again and making new icons lol. I'll upload what I have done today and then work on more later.

I forgot how damn much I love that movie and the characters and actors in it. a;sljghasf And I love family shit and fantasy stories.

Last night I made some low carb hamburger bun bread with Wio flour. It's pretty much regular flour with an enzyme blocker in it, but it's more absorbent than regular flour in my experience, so the first time I made it I had trouble with dry dough. This time, I added WAAAAY too much, and it got stuck on EVERYTHING, omg. It was pretty messy and annoying to deal with, and baking bread is a trip - I have a long way to go to get good at it.

Regardless, it came out okay and maybe it helped that I over-cooked it a bit to compensate. They're all lopsided buns, but they taste good. Tonight is BBQ sandwich night with [personal profile] insidious.

I have been playing catch-up with my games since I have time to now, and only a few things to sew between now and Ikkicon/Christmas. (just a briefcase cover for Leorio and some bows for my roommate's niece) I started up Ys I (Chronicles version) on Steam on my work computer (because it's slow here sometimes and I'm allowed), and I've made it all the way to Zeiss in Trails in the Sky at home. The reason I was up so late finishing the bread is because I got distracted playing that, and RPing. I have a growing urge to RP Kloe in my sandbox, among all the other plot threads I have going on. Sometimes I wish it was as easy to write fic (and with random crossovers for that matter) as it was to do world crossovers in roleplay. There is not enough time in the day for all the muses I want to unleash.

Finally done with the holidays with my family, and I am overwhelmed. In a good way. I got a lot of stuff I didn't think that I deserved. I hope that the gifts I was able to afford to give were appreciated. :)

[personal profile] debbiechan, thank you for the digital card! I didn't see it until recently! D: I need to check my email more often.

So after searching quite a few times, I finally found all the Wedding Peach soundtracks online! *_____* I'm on a kick for this series again. It's so corny, but in a good way, because it's so ridiculous it goes back around again into awesome and funny. I like it just as much as I like Sailor Moon, and while they have a lot of the same old tropes/plots, I think it stands well as its own magical girl series.

You can download them all here.

Since school is over (I GOT AN A!!!! OMG *CRIES* ;o;), I settled down to start playing all the games I haven't been able to touch. It's been too hard to focus. I'm currently playing Zelda: Ocarina of Time and Tales of the Abyss on my 3DS, which I've had most of the year but never had the time to do more than play a few minutes of. I had to restart my game of Abyss because I got lost. And then I started my own game of Tales of Vesperia on [personal profile] insidious's XBox. I got a Vita for Christmas, so when I've finished all of those I have Ys: Memories of Celceta to start. But I haven't beaten the earlier Ys games either, so I should probably do that first... ugh. That's not even everything. But a few at a time, or I'll start mixing the stories up.

And on top of all that? I've been watching [personal profile] insidious play Tales of Xillia, and have become totally attached to the character Alvin. No spoilers though, please... we're only 3/4 of the way through the game. Ugh, my feels for that game may surpass any of the other Tales so far.


I try to buy all my games, but if it's not available in English, what can you do? :| Anyway, that's another set of games I want to begin, but I'll have to wait until I finish everything else, and borrow them from my roommate. I just went and put it on my PSP so she'd be able to play it too.

Well, back to trying not to get sick here at work. One of my coworkers is out sick with the flu. I usually carpool with him, but we haven't been around each other all week thankfully. I just hope no one else at the office has caught anything because I haven't had a flu shot. T__T

Sick DX

So it's my day off, and I've been sick most of the weekend, to the point that I finally called in sick on Monday and took the day off then too. Missed some pay, but I think I can still afford it since I got some work to do on the computer. But I plugged in the dreamcast again today since last week we found all the game systems. The only game I have that works still is Time Stalkers.

It's funny, I just noticed the Dreamcast symbol looks like Dreamwidth's swirl too. Is that a coincidence?

Also, the art in Time Stalkers is /very/ similar to Alundra. Apparently the team who made it went on to make the game study that made Alundra with a few of the members. Their art somehow still kinda sucked, even though I like the style. I remember that when I bought Alundra, I noticed that his hand was backwards in one picture. XD Bad proportions and perspective seem to be a thing with young game companies. In Trails in the Sky, the early art has ginormous hands too.

I really wish this game would let you skip the opening sequence. At least I have room on my memory card this time.
