 Haven't updated in a while. D: I'll try and remember what all happened between now and my last update which was over a month ago. This totally isn't chronological because my memory sucks.
 
 [info]cardcaptorkiki came to visit one weekend. We went to get fabric, ate at my new favorite restaurant Thai Wasabi, sewed some, went to visit her relatives, watched Hana Yori Dango, and more. It was lots of fun~. I'd love to be able to meet up with all of worldism_i_n_e sometime soon. ♥

 My SHINee socks came in. OMG. You have no idea how happy these things make me. Seriously. Love, love, love them. They came with 3 pictures too. Kpop has taken over my life btw.


Rest under cut, I'd appreciate the read :]Collapse )


That's about it. I wasn't able to make it to Katsucon this year which was a little sad, but I'm definitely going to Otakon! Room is booked and everything. I'm actually going with a few of my high school buddies all before we graduate and part ways. I'm really excited for the trip.

So I haven't had to go to school all week because of the snow here in SC. AWWWW YEAAAAHHH. Needless to say, it's been a nice week so far. Monday was the first day it really snowed, so of course I had to go out and play a little bit. Here are the results:


You know, now that I think about it, that was the first time I've ever made a snowman. Shows you how much snow we get in SC. Later on, I made this bigger and better one. =]
HP snowman, kekeke.

More snow day pictures if you're interestedCollapse )

I don't have to go back to school until the 18th, so I've got lots of free time. Will be sewing, watching dramas, learning kpop dances, and moreeee.

 I've been meaning to post for a while now, but things have been so busy even during break time that I never got a chance. So here's my combined holidays + new years post. :D

Cutting to avoid flooding your ljCollapse )


2010 was a decent cosplay year for me. 11 new costumes and 5 cons. There were definitely some things I was unhappy with, but I'm going to try harder this year. With college starting in the fall though, the cons I go to might be changing some depending on where I go. We'll see. I'm going to try real hard to make it to Otakon this year too. I want to do that new years cosplay meme sometime soon too.

Hope everyone's doing well! I'm going to go take some NyQuil now, ughhh.

 Heyyy lj. I've just been lurking for the past month. Updates since my last post, fragments everywhere:

- Went down to Atlanta from Nov. 19-22 to visit my sister and see Bo Burnham live. So much fun~. Did some shopping in Little Five Points before, got some Thai food, and then the show. Bo was great and had me laughing with tears in my eyes. I got to meet him and get him to sign my tour shirt after. He's so cute and quiet when he's not on stage.

- Got my tattoo that Sunday with my sister. HAHA. OH ME. It's a less than three (<3) heart that's barely even an inch and in a spot no one would ever see unless I'm showing it to them. Just what I wanted.

- Already seen Harry Potter three times. LOVE.

- Thanksgiving was busy and crowded. Around 30 people in my house.

- Went Black Friday shopping for the first time. Totally not worth it.

- Became a redditor some time in the past month. It consumes my internet time now.

- On the drama front, I'm watching Secret Garden and Mary Stayed Out All Night. Both really good, but Secret Garden is AMAZING. I've never laughed so hard in a drama. Can't wait for epi 9!

- My oldest sister went to the HP theme park before me. SO JELLY. But she bought me some goodies.

- Bought Inception on Tuesday. Love me some dreams within dreams within dreams (& Joseph Gordon-Levitt :3).

- Last day of school before break is Friday for me. So much work in between now and then though. D:

- WILL WORK ON COSPLAY DURING THE BREAK. I've really been wanting to sew lately just haven't  had the time. 

My semi-crazy Tea Party uncle is just came to my house. Gotta go say hello.
Is everyone excited for the holidays? I know I am. ♥

 Did my first ever thing that actually made me feel like an adult: Vote! I didn't have to wait in line or anything so that was nice. Candidate choices in SC aren't exactly opportune for me. This place is way too conservative, myself being on the complete opposite side. But it felt nice voting against people like Joe Wilson who happens to rep my district. D:

I went to a Halloween party Friday night which was fun. Made a Wind Waker Link costume Friday afternoon before I left for the party. Woo! Procrastination ftw. For being made in about 3 hours I'm pretty proud of it. I just need to get more accurate shoes and buy some pointy ears if I ever wear him to a con. Sadly, I don't have any pictures, but I'll get some soon. :]

I'll be down in Atlanta from Nov. 19-22 visiting my sister and going to see Bo Burnham live! So excited! He'll be the first forth (see below, Wong Fu is 3 people) big Youtuber I've met. Words Words Words is amazing. Going to visit Emory that Monday too. But before I head down, I'm sure most of the f-list knows what comes out Nov. 19! I'll be at the midnight showing for HP fersure. I really need to get started on making a costume for that.

Blaaahh, gotta go do homework.

edit: Wong Fu's going to be in Atl on Nov 19 too! Eeee, excited!! My Youtuberness is so happy. :D

It’s been almost a month since my last update. ORZ. What I’ve been up to:

     Visited my eldest (and newly engaged!) sister up in DC from Oct. 1-5 and had tons of fun. I originally went up there to go skydiving with her to celebrate her getting her Ph.D and me turning 18, but unfortunately it was raining and something had gone wrong with their plane. So yeah, that didn’t exactly happen. Oh well, that gives me another excuse to go up and visit her and her fiancé. I’ll probably be going up again in the spring, because you don’t really want to jump out of a plane in the winter either.

     Colleges, colleges, money, colleges, apps, stress, scholarships, colleges, money. Blahhh, I can’t wait to be done with all this stuff. Ima make a post about college sometime this coming week since most of my lj friends are older and wiser than me in this department and I figured I could get some advice.

     Had a mini-photoshoot with my friend Tess last weekend. I wore Sora and my White Rabbit since she wore her Mad Hatter. None of my irl friends cosplay at all, so it was nice having her dress up with me even if it was just closet/thrift stuff. BIGGEST FAIL EVER THOUGH: Forgot to wear my Sora gloves. I remembered all the little pieces for our Alice costumes but forget something on the costume that has like 3 pieces. Gahhh, I’m an idiot.
Pictures from the mini-shoot aka us messing around in my backyard.Collapse )
 

     Finished the Hunger Games series in about a week and a half.

  

     My SNSD poster came in. It’s so pretty. *.* I really want more Kpop posters to decorate my room.

     Had a neighborhood garage sale this weekend where my mom proceeded to sell my brand new Toms that my sister bought for me in DC for my birthday for a mere dollar. You have no idea how mad I was at her. >:OOO

     THE MOST INTENSE BATTLE WITH MY COMPUTER EVAR LAST THRUSDAY. It basically crashed for no reason and I spent a good four hours working on fixing it since I couldn’t even log into a user. But dang, I fixed it and felt pretty good about it. This experience only further pushed my feeling that I hate PCs and want a Mac so bad.

     IB continues to eat my life. G4 stuff now. EE due in about two months. And Historical Investigations. And World Lit. Then IAs. I can’t wait to graduate.
 

Hope everyone's doing well!

So AWA this year was lots of fun. The con itself was a little lacking concerning panels and things to do, but I had a great time just hanging out with people. I went to the Yaoi panel for a grand total of two minutes just to get IDed since I’m 18 now, lulz. Congrats to everyone who won an award in the contest! I finally got motivated again to work on cosplay after seeing some amazing costumes. I picked up some swag from the Dealer’s room and AA too of course. It didn’t hit me until the end of the con, but that might be my last AWA for a while depending on where I go to college next year. Well if it was, it was a great year to end it on.

Stuff I got:

Dia charm (finally have all of Amu’s charas), Utau figure, cute Bento written in French, Hello Kitty fork & spoon + FMA keychain for a friend’s birthday present, Princess Tutu, Gryffindor patch (gotta make a new robe for the movie), Kirk bookmark, tape necklace, Berry button (that’s my last name if you didn’t know) + DBSK shirt + Hear My Voice doujinshi all from Mouichi’s table.

Figured I'd post my cosplay plans since everyone else is doing it and I'm actually feeling motivated.

If you're interested...Collapse )

School's still crazy. Had my first Extended Essay draft due last week. Need to work on CAS. And I'm the Prez for three clubs this year (Anime/Manga, Production, & Gay-Straight Alliance). So much to do when I all feel like doing is watching dramas, orzzz.

I started back at school on Wednesday. No more watching dramas until 3 in the morning. T-T It's my senior year though, so I'm pretty excited. I'm still finishing up my IB courses, and I'm also taking Piano as my fine arts requirement. I'll finally have time to practice now. And I actually understood what we were talking about in physics today so the year is definitely starting off better.

In other news, on October 3, I'M JUMPING OUT OF A PLANE. Just thought you should know.

My oldest sister is getting her Ph. D this December and I'm turning 18 in September, so we decided to celebrate. I'll be heading back up to DC to visit her, skydive, and visit some colleges. It should be lots of fun. I'm so excited you have no idea. :DDDD

AWA is coming up too. TONS TO DO..... I'm such a fail cosplayer. Here's my tentative plans though:

So Adelle is like a HUGE maybe. I'd really love to finish her on time, but I'm definitely not guaranteeing anything. Hope to get some Dead Master pics with Ria. ♥ Digimon group FTW. And I'm also going to try and scrap together Kasuka to go along with Kiki's Shizuo for some DRR!! times. I'm excited! It feels like I haven't been to a big con in ages.

In drama news, I'm totally in love with the new My Girlfriend is a Gumiho/Nine-Tailed Fox. It's soooo good and refreshing compared to what else I've been watching. Lee Seung Gi and Shin Min Ah are both so adorable. And No Min Woo's character is incredibly attractive. XD It's defintiely looking like a great series so far. I'm looking forward to the future episodes.

I've been experimenting with food lately. College in a year, so I should probably learn how to feed myself, lulz. I made a berry pie last week that turned out fantastic. Here's what I made for dinner~. I based it off this recipe but switched the tofu with chicken.

Probably my first whole meal I made excluding the obvious sammich, ramen, omelete, etc. So f-list, do you cook often? I trying to find some other fun and easy things to make. =]

Still playing catch-up with the internet. There are so many animes I want to watch right now. I'm almost done with DRRR!!. I'm still watching too many dramas as well. I'm absolutely addicted to Nappeun Namja or Bad Guy (yeah the Korean title sounds way cooler). I'm really sad they're having to cut the series short by three epis due to Kim Nam Gil going into the military. I also bought 1 Litre of Tears on dvd. Seriously that title does not lie. I cry in every single episode. It's such a moving drama. It really makes you appreciate the simple things in life and the bonds of family and friends.

I'm also totally in love with SHINee's new song and mv Lucifer. ♥ ♥
