It also is hollow and helps them float.

This one girl messaged me, it's this weird thing where we ignore each other like 7 months then talk for one month, repeat a couple times, I don't know why I humor her.

I should just be like "Are we gonna fuck or what" and it will hopefully end right there. (I don't want sex, I just know that will make her stop talking to me)

Woohoo! Might get the three pounds of turkey feathers I need for a cosplay for nothing. Mom's boyfriend has a coworker who has quite a few turkeys, and they're getting eaten at Xmas. If he's got white instead of bronze turkeys, it'll be no problem getting the feathers I need. If they're not white turkeys, back to square one. (But I did put "WHITE TURKEY ROUND AND POINT FEATHERS, L&R WINGS" on my Xmas list. I might at least get some craft-store packs for free. This cosplay is a challenge to see just how little I can spend while still making it look good. Fortunately it's an original so things are more flexible)

Multiple times


BAZING!



But no seriously, she became really stalkerish, and I wish to gods that I hadn't said it and just straight ignored her.

I really wish I was better at being unique with my artwork. I do a lot of fanart, which I don't think is necessarily bad, but my style and abilities aren't varied.

Looking at the popular page of dA it's all doll-eyed white girls either in drawings or photography. Artists who draw characters based on ethnic foods who still draw the girls as white, despite saying she's based off Chinese tea's or Japanese noodle soup. It's seeing another artist who draws the same-faced big doe-eyed white girls with small pouty lips doing nothing interesting other then sitting around looking pouty. Or it's thin white-girls cosplaying characters who are WOC and people flip out over how super great they look or it's just pictures of thin white girls in their underpants looking lustfully at the viewer. Or it's 'expansion art' of normally thin characters that the artist draws just to get attention for it being considered fetish artwork (in their own words). I've seen fanart of colored characters drawn as clearly white (down to changes in features) all over the damn place.

Sometimes I just hate that I don't feel at a creative enough level to draw something that stands out as unique. I don't want to draw only skinny white girls forever, not that anything is wrong with skinny white girls but when it's all that I see it gets boring and repetitive and non-inclusive. But if you try to draw anything that isn't a young 20-something thin attractive white woman no one will give you the time of day.

AND THEN ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THINGS;
If I draw a character that's considered sexy, but I just REALLY GENUINELY LIKE THAT CHARACTER people assume I am a dudebro and then treat me completely differently when they figure out I am a girl. Some characters I love happen to be drawn traditionally sexy, I play a lot of video games and love fighting games so it's sort of the status quo that they're not dressed in the most realistic of outfits. But I love their games, I love their characters and as soon as someone figures out I am a girl I am either met with disdain for liking 'mens characters' or people think I am drawing it for attention.

Like the guy at Youmacon who accused me of not knowing where Roll originated from. They assume I am drawing someone 'sexy' for the sake of views.


I can't fucking wiiiinnnn and I am not talented enough to be original and cool.

Welp, just found out not too long ago that my ex-boyfriend cheated on me with various other girls during our relationship, lied to me multiple times and broke up with me just to go with his "new girlfriend."

...Well, this is enlightening.

My copy of Persona 4: Golden just arrived!

...but I can't remember where the game cartridge slot on my Vita is (I haven't played any physical-media games on it except Gravity Rush). O_o

Sort of. My dad's an archer (and chairman of the local club), so I only know what I've been expected to know....

That is most ironic, given I ordered my import copy from a Canadian website. ¨_¨

We can retire from cosplay now:




Apparently he just wandered around the convention sweeping everywhere and no one noticed who he was.

OMG, that's awesome. I always wanted to see a Scruffy. Would've been funnier/posssibly more recognizable if he'd carried around one of his weird/future porn magazines, though. I'm trying to convince boyfriend to cosplay Scruffy someday. He just doesn't want to do the wig/giant fake mustache thing.
