Running the gauntlet [Apr. 30th, 2007|10:22 am]

Big awesome thanks to everyone at the Turks photo shoot on Saturday, immense fun was had by me. It's always great to get to hang out with people I don't see on a regular basis. And now I will actually have some nice photos of me in a costume - even if said costume was simply a suit I already had in my closet and a cute wig.

Now I have a gauntlet of sewing I have to run by the end of May, which includes the following :

Alice Meet - Finnegan is getting a floofy dress, and I really want to bring Faolen. I need to think of something to make him. Also promised to make a cute little dress for Clover.

Anime North - I have two costumes I want to complete for con. A) Cirruci Thunderwitch (Bleach) and B)Mia Fey (Phoenix Wright). I also want to bring all my dolls, and if I do that I'll want them to be wearing something new.

Theoretically, I can do all this. I have a good solid plan of getting things done, and the costumes are not incredibly difficult, but should be enough of a challenge to be a good learning experience.

Let's hope theory pans out well in real life ~

To everyone who was a part of the AN registration group : I have recieved a confirmation of our registration/payment, and they have forwarded me a copy of everyone's confirmation e-mail. If you did not recieve an e-mail from AN with your confirmation number, let me know and I will send it to you.

Sewing, sewing, sewing. So much sewing to do, so little time. I am excited for Saturday photo day, but it's looking like I'm coming up by myself T_T

Why is it so God damned hard for hte people at work to realize all they have to do is restart the server if things aren't working properly? I get this call at about ten to seven this morning (just as I was enjoying a roll around before gettig out of bed and a full hour before I have to go to work) "The computers aren't working, we need you to look at them!" Fuck.

JUST RESTART THE SERVER >_< HOW HARD IS THAT?!?!?!

The forms for the Anime North Preregistration group went out in the mail yesterday afternoon! Huzzah, that's a load off of my mind> We ended up with a group of 13 in the end, so thanks to everyone who joined in to make this possible. Next year, I will organize better and sooner.

Bah, why is it snowing? WHY?!

My Carol head arrived on Monday! JOY! I've never owned a Volks doll before, and I was very impressed with the default make up on her. Nice and soft, very natural looking. I wish my camera wasn't broken so I could take some pictures to convey the true depths of my joy. It's unfortunate, however, that she will not have a body for quite a while. There are other priorities with my doll plans, as she was sort of an opportunity buy.

The PoliceCops are one step closer to existing XD

I will also be getting a sleeping Shushu head sometime next week, courtesy of linzbot, which I will likely mod to have opened eyes. I really fell in love with that mold, and while I don't really have a specific plan for her, I'm sure she will fall into place with the others. SHUSHU is TOO CUTE.

Wasting away a Sunday [Apr. 1st, 2007|05:15 pm]

[music |300 OST]

Spent very little time doing things I should have done today, and instead spent most of it on YTMND and various other stupid internet things.

I did, however accomplish 2 things.

We now have the necessary amount of people to prereg for AN, I just need people's full names and e-mail addresses to complete the form. Also, if people could send me the money pre-emptively (Paypal would be awesome), because have to send them a $400 cheque that would be nifty.

Also, in the interest in deciding on group cosplay, I spent a lot of time today ctaching up on XXXholic. This also lead to some random thoughts and doodling. 'Cause I think it would be fun to make random cute human!Mokona outfits.

XXXholic: Cute MokonasCollapse )

Maybe I'll colour this later.

An open call [Mar. 28th, 2007|08:09 am]

To anyone on my flist attending Anime North : I'd like to organize a prereg group (because we're losers who leave everything until the last minute), and we need a couple more people to hit at least 10 and qualify. So if anyone wants in leave a comment or message me on MSN (matantei_anikka@hotmail.com)and we'll get things rolling asap.

Major cosplay narrowed to XXXHolic or Persona 2. I am personally rooting for P2, and I would like to be Tatsuya, Maya, or Ellen. Also planning a brief Arrancar cosplay for a portion of Saturday to join in on the spectacle, likely to be Cirucci Thunderwitch. If I have time.

Con Report [Mar. 26th, 2007|08:44 am]

Sheenacon 2007 has come and gone, and my only regret was that I didn't finish my cosplay in time. Oh well, there's always next year. Everything was wonderfully organized, the staff were friendly an helpful, and I had a great time. I can't wait to prereg for 2008!

Now, a look ahead to AN. So many things I want to cosplay, none of them anyone else wants to do XD Tommorrow night there will be a sit down discussion on what the group wants to do. I'm thinking to ask my stepmom if she will lend me her van for AN to cart all of our crap to con, as opposed to cramming it all in the Echo.

I <3 Tales of the Abyss. Luke, I will punch you in the face!
