Molto bene! [07 May 2012|08:04pm]
[ mood | lazy ]

Less than three weeks left!

Is it bad that I'm -seriously- looking forward to my and Luster's Assassin's Creed cosplays all the more? Like, y'know, random ass shenanigans in Novice Assassin garb? Granted, we don't be able to do much while I'm Connor, but when we're both Apprentices... oh man.

It's not even funny how obsessed with this goddamn series I am. I am SO EXCITED for AC III, especially since Connor is from my ethnicity. omg. omg! <333

THE FEELS. And Luster determined that she's going to buy me Machine for Pigs, in exchange for me playing it for her as often as we can~ |D I can dig it!

I'm still alive! [04 Mar 2012|05:01pm]
I swear it, I've just been way busy lately, ha ha!

Well, things have changed dramatically in the past year. I don't think I've gone through as many life changes within the past five years compared to this past one. It's... It's been a crazy ride, ha ha~

Aaaanyways, I cut my hair, went back to school, am currently an EMT-B (working on I), and I've fallen head first into the Amnesia: the Dark Descent fandom. Oh. Oh dear god is that game amazing. I started a little side project, and thanks to Luster, it actually got recognition from the writer of A:TDD! gjerigjerogr I'm still freaking out about it, rofl~

Speaking of, Luster and I attended YCon this year, and it was fun, but seemed... lacking? I don't know, lol. We won't be able to make it to Sakura Con this year, because we decided to go to Fanime instead! I haven't been to that con since '10, and it'll be nice for our cosplay group to have a change of scenery. <3 We'll be meeting with friends as usual, although Luster and I are still sorting through our cosplay plans. Needless to say, we are definitely debuting out Amnesia: Justine costumes.

Pfffft there's probably more to write, but I'm being lazy. I have a medical terminology test to complete. If I remember to log in, I'll dabble on more eventually~ <3

Concert aftermath! [06 Sep 2010|08:38pm]
[ mood | cheerful ]

Who got to hang out with Apocalyptica? Who got Eicca to give Luster a personal greeting on camera? Who had an amazing time at one of the best concerts in years?

That's right, fools. Moi. Photos of me and the band (as well as Dir en grey and Apocalyptica on stage) on my Facebook, and Luster's greeting from Eicca on my YouTube account.

My musical life. Is complete. <333

Pretty fucked up dream~ [05 Aug 2010|01:54pm]
[ mood | tired ]

So I've been pretty exhausted the past few nights - with Otakon having whooped my ass, my shitty health as it is, and the sudden elevation change, it's been difficult for me to catch a full night's rest. Then there's the problem of the reoccurring dream that just wouldn't go away no matter how many times I woke up and went back to sleep. Especially when it's a disturbing nightmare~Collapse )

And now, back to catching up with LJ updates. Dear god some of you guys update a lot. <3

Gay month?! [30 Jun 2010|07:56am]
[ mood | contemplative ]

I had no idea that June was Gay Pride month until, voila, the end of the month. Lmao, would explain all the parades and articles being featured and whatnot.

I'm glad that society is gradually accepting all forms of love - slowly, mind you, but any progress is better than no progress. Hell, when I was younger, I was told that same sex couples were "wrong". I'm sad to say that I thought this was so. Then I grew up. Personally, I think the only thing "wrong" is parents/guardians raising their young to conform to their own ignorant views.

Unfortunately, I live in a very small community. The high school I graduated from was filled with bible thumpers, and I distinctly remember a girl in my grade who would scream at the top of her lungs that homosexuality was a "sin" - she happened to be the daughter of a local pastor (and the screaming bit? Not an exaggeration in the least, unfortunately). So long for that "loving God" her family preaches about. Hypocrites grate on my nerves, especially when they shove their twisted views upon someone who could care less. If anything, I hope that girl breaks free of her ignorant shell and opens a pair of nonjudgmental eyes, but I know that's like wishing for world peace and all that happy shit.

For the longest time, I considered myself asexual, simply because I found no attraction to... well, anyone, really. However, I winded up falling for someone not because of their gender, but because of their personality. Hell, I didn't even know their gender until after I fell for them, lol. This reoccurred, and to this day, I'm still not sure what to consider myself. I don't see myself attracted to males or females. Sure, I may be like, "Dude, that chick/dude is hot", but is that the same as falling for someone because of what they are/what they identify with? I don't think so. Does that mean I'm still 'asexual'? I wouldn't say so.

As for gender identification, I could care less what one wants to be considered. So long as they don't unnecessarily shove it in my face (which, sadly, has been done before), I'll be happy to address one with whatever gender they identify as. For myself, I don't identify with either male or female. Odd, I know, but I just don't lean to one side or the other. I've seen people refer to me as both genders, and it doesn't bother me. As long as one is referring to me as me, I'm okay with it.

So yeah, I'm happy that society is steadily accepting alternate lifestyles. You people fighting for those rights, keep on fighting. I'll be right there to support you, because love shouldn't be restricted to one's genitals; love is what envelops the very soul itself.

...that being said, I'm totally not gay. Really. Herp-a-derp. :B

First of all, HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my beloved. <3 May your day be filled with awesome, win, and tea cup sized Dmitri's. <3

And also, Fanime this year was amazing. I actually stuck to my costume schedule, wore them all, and each one was recognized - even the obscure (Rosiel, Azel, and Angela). I got to spend time with almost everyone; I did my best~ ; 3; None the less, it was great, making new friends and hanging out with old friends. Lindsay and I totally have to be roomies for Fanime again~ <3

Full report coming soon (along with my Sakura Con report too, I swear!) with epic pictures and dorky awesomeness.

SHUT UP WOMAN GET ON MY HORSE~

Product Review: Dream Water [13 May 2010|05:50pm]
[ mood | drained ]

Upon glancing back at my LJ, I realized that I haven't even mentioned Sakura Con and its awesomeness yet. I'll do a report soon, promise~ <3

Anyways, yesterday morning I was feeling physically blah. For the past couple of days, I've had this continuous headache that just... wouldn't leave. While I was fine enough to work a bit on my cosplay, I admit that I spent most of my day yesterday bedridden. Feels bad, man.

None the less, I also got a sample I ordered that I've been wanting to try. As some of my friends know, I've had terrible problems with insomnia for the longest time. If I don't take at least some kind of sleep supplement, I'll guarantee that I won't sleep until I do, no matter how long that may last. D: Sucks balls.

So anyways, one day while being lazy and watching Food Network, I saw this ad for this product called "Dream Water". Curious, I decided to check out the website, then decided to order a sample. It took a while to come in, but hey, I finally had it in my hands yesterday. :3

The 'shot' reminds me of your normal 2.5FL oz. energy shot, but proclaims to hold opposite effects. It boasts to have 0 calories, and also advises the consumer not to exceed one serving per twenty-four hours. Curious, I checked out the ingredients as well, and sure enough, it contains melatonin - the key ingredient of the product. Ah well, why not give it a try?

The flavor I got was "Lullaby Lemon", so I was expecting something strong and tangy, if not with a bitter after taste. Alas, I was presently surprised. When I first dipped the water past my lips, it reminded me of a lemon drop - a hint of sweetness. However, as I swallowed, the remaining taste was no longer that of a lemon drop, but rather of a very mild menthol. It wasn't strong enough to jump out at me; in fact, it took me a while to place my finger on it - that faint hint of medicine, like a watered down cough syrup. Hell, calling it a cough syrup in itself is too strong of a title. None the less, that soft sweetness at the beginning doesn't allow for the product to leave you with the bitter after taste of menthol, or that strong tang of lemon. I'd say it was juuuust right. |D

On the bottle, it states that it takes around half an hour for the product to kick in, along with the usual "do not operate machinery" yadda yadda yadda on the side. I can comfortably say that, by the time the half hour was up, I was yawning and curled up in bed, lol.

On the down side, I wasn't able to fall asleep immediately. About an hour later I was able to doze off a bit, then something woke me up and I couldn't go back to sleep. The sad thing is, I don't even know what woke me up. D: None the less, this is coming from the insomniac who has to take some pretty strong sleep aids to doze off successfully. I'm sure for a person with a fairly normal schedule would be able to slip away into la la land without trouble. Let's not forget, with my feeling ill yesterday, I also took one of my migraine medications, which is known for carrying caffeine and causes increased heartbeat. D: I wouldn't doubt this also had something to do with it.

Overall, I'd give this product a three and a half out of five stars. Didn't put me to sleep, but I'd be lying if I said that it didn't make me sleepy and relaxed. <3

New Tattoo! [24 Mar 2010|09:48pm]

Yes, I got another tattoo today. I've been wanting it since January, but due to health complications, I haven't really gotten out of the house. None the less, got it done. <3



A tribute to my Goddess. <3

I totally bought Final Fantasy XIII today. Retarded health problems aside, this totally made my day. <3

Now, excuse me as I force myself to put down Dissidia; hopefully, this won't be as big of a disappointment as Final Fantasy XII~

Last post of the decade~! [31 Dec 2009|11:20pm]
[ mood | content ]

Perspectives have been worked on this year, definitely. What else... Hn.

I've matured, I hope. My health still isn't all that great (oh iron immune system, what happened to you? ;___; ), but my mental health is doing a hell of a lot better. I still have slip ups every once in a while, but who doesn't?

Overall, I'm glad this year has been kind to me, as with last year. I've had a blast making new friends, hanging out with old ones, getting a job that I actually like, and traveling. I've grown as a cosplayer, although I wish I had more art done this year.

As for the decade itself, it's had TONS of ups and downs. High school, college, relationships, jobs, etc. etc. All the fun part about growing up. Am I where I thought I'd be? Not at all, but since when does life ever go just as planned? Lulz.

Okay, enough sappy stuff. I'm still going to post my ever-late Yaoi Con report (maybe a brief on Otaku Mex as well - small con, hilarious shit), and now, I'm going to finish eating my tacos and get ready. I have a party to go to. <3

Evil mornings; I despise them. None the less, I finally got a full day off of work. I think my health rebels against me when I work all these crazy hours - it's so not awesome. Am on medication for the next couple of weeks.

Since I really have nothing to update with, have a Myspace bathroom cosplay preview instead:


I'll be using a different wig, mind you. None the less, how awesome would it be if Luster cosplayed as Cain from Godchild while we strolled around the Kuroshitsuji tea party? 8D Although, I'll still be plenty happy if she does Butler!Grell. <3
