Unbearable heat and other things

June 10th, 2008 (10:54 am)

current location: Teh Library
current mood: busy

So! It's been a while and I thought I'd give some kind of update.

I'm still living on a couch at a friend's... not really a big deal to me, since we'll be getting a two bedroom in July.

I've basically been just hanging out with friends in my spare time and reading LOTS of comics these days. My friends have gotten me hopelessly addicted to things like Deadpool, Captain America, Iron Man and Doctor Strange ^_^; Not that my love for Anime and Manga has deminished, I'm just learning to appriciate a genre I'd never really given a fair chance. (WTF Marvel?!? Why is all your best stuff the junk you DON'T whore out?!?!?!?!?!)

P.S.- I've seen Iron Man three times and enjoyed it each time. Though, now every time Obadiah says the whole 'Tony Stark built this in a cave!' line, I die laughing XD

Hope everyone is doing well and surviving the heat, or storms, or whatever the weather may be! (100 degrees + for me the last three or four days XO )

Hooray for Conventions

May 27th, 2008 (01:14 pm)

current location: Teh Library
current mood: drained

Animazement RULED this year.

Pics later. :D

We had an awsome improv Hellsing Photoshoot Sunday morning. We went crazy for about 20 or 30 minutes while willing strangers captured it on film. Most of the convention was spent being silly with friends. The only thing I regret missing was Jouji Nakata, Voice of Alucard. ;_; but his autograph session was before I arrived on Friday.

I'm still recovering from con-induced sleep deprivation, so the best pics I took will be posted later.

OMFG! :D I had such a great time seeing Voltaire perform live Friday night. I sang and laughed , got danced with by a totally random girl, and one of my friends got an awsome hot kiss from this guy who 'adopted' us during the concert! ^__^

I'm almost done moving, but I have to find a home or homes for two of my cats. :( I know where they'll go if I am not capable of finding them a new homw myself so nothing bad will happen to them.

Until next time!

Mmmmm, Life.

current mood: calm
current song: MOO

Yes! Even I have one! (Sort of!XD)

Well, I broke up with my girlfriend roughly three weeks ago. Not fun, not fun at all. there is a bitter assortment of reasons for this, but it's better to move on instead of beating an already thoroughly flayed horse.

In other news- not much to report. Work is no fun, and it's been raining on and off here in my corner of the Universe for about two weeks now. The rain has ruined the two times I've attempted to go to the local Rennaisance Faire. :(

On the bright side, the local anime convention is quickly approaching and I am now master of my own finances.

Hopefully, I'll have something more interesting to share on a later date.

current song: O Fortuna remix

So, this past Thursday was my birthday. ^_^ I had a picnic with friends and we spent almost the whole day outdoors. My girlfriend had baked me a cake, and this is what happened when Countess_Sam decorated it-->

XD I died laughing.

Anybody want a slice of tombstone?!? LOL

In general, life has been a touch rough due to some personal issues, but my friends are helping me through it and hopefully I'll be able to get all the drama settled out in a couple of weeks.

Cosplay CRACK!

current mood: calm
current song: Re-Animate- Frontline Assembly

Well, with the weather warming up here in North Carolina and the local convention in less than three months, I convinced my friends to do some cosplaying with me. I think I'm the pudgiest Walter cosplayer on film, but hey, he's too fun to run around as.

So, here's the link to the photobucket album:

Cosplay is GO!

current location: La La Land
current mood: flighty
current song: Vampire Club- Voltaire

I caught my rabbit on film eating dry pasta.

It wasn't so much the fact that he liked it that stunned me, it was the way he took the spaghetti noodle and munched continuously until it dissapeared.

So! I have all my cosplay plans set for the coming convention in May.

Young/Dark Walter

James from Pokemon ( hey, it was the only way I could get a friend of mine to go! XD)

And a super-secret cosplay. I want to compliment a friend of mine's cosplay, but I couldn't decide on someone straight out of Dracula. So, I picked a character who found her way into a modern creation that features an assortment of other Victorian literary characters. It gives me the chance to wear something deliciously Victorian and a scarf :)

I just hope I'll be able to pull off my Super Secret cosplay in time ^_^; I don't feel like cross-playing the whole con this year. But then Walter is done and James won't be hard to complete....
