Stars - that dress is amazing!


I gave my guinea pig an empty oatmeal box to play with while he's having out of cage time.
He hasn't left the box. He's either in it, on it, or nibbling it. I guess I did good putting that empty box back in the cupboard

Yay, right while I was almost out of cash I won ten bucks. But it's going to the couple of food items I'm bringing to Anime North (boyfriend and I buy some snack items, mini cereal boxes and some fruit to save a bit of money and time eating out at breakfasts. We eat at home Friday when we leave that morning, have our brought stuff Saturday&Sunday and a proper buffet breakfast before we leave Monday. And snacks are a lifesaver at the badge line and when travelling to the con. Or a large amount of back-to-back panels we don't want to miss.)

Come to Anime North someday Stars! (though I feel I should point out that it's in Ontario, not Quebec. Quebec cons are also good, but contain significantly more French ^_^)
Also congrats on the summer program! That sounds like a great experience!

Ahhh, I was mixing up Anime North and Otakuthon, I think. xD

And thank you! I'm curious to see what exact courses they'll put me in, and if I learn anything that could possibly be applied to cosplaying while I'm there, I'll be sure to share it here!

That's so awesome!! I'm not gonna lie, I actually stalked Harvard's freshman arts program because I was curious after your video.....so I'm so excited for you!


Meanwhile. My toesies hurt!
My first class is hard and en pointe and we ended with fouettes/turns from fifth, and then I had two hours of class on flat (aka time for my feet to swell) and then another pointe class ;_;

Is it just me, or is everyone sick of hearing that 'cup song' from Pitch Perfect?

Yeah, it was cool the first time she did it.

I suppose it was cool when the first few fans did it to.

Frankly, it is not impressive anymore and it's borderline annoying.

OH GOD ITS BACK.

The website was down for me. I hear tell it happened to some other people too.

It's been days.

I felt so alone.

Like I was lost in a dark cave with no sign of daylight in sight.

Also I made some things and stuff. It was fun.

I am NOT adjusting well to my new glasses. The astigmatism correction in the right eye went up and my myopia correction went up a little.... looking at things for than a few feet away is not going so well. The floor and walls appear to be closer and "bulging" and it's giving me eyestrain in the right eye. If I can't adjust to this in a few weeks, I'm going to have to go BACK to the optometrist and tell him this prescription fucked up... and that's going to cost a god damn fortune.

Discussing with a friend about room cost for a convention, and not sure how it makes sense to charge everyone $130 for 3 nights if someone only goes for 2 nights. Sucks for anyone that only goes one night and wants to room with them :/

That's kinda sucky.
I've never 'charged' friends for more then the length of their actual stay :\

So I decided to go to Atomic Lollipop con next summer.... it being a summer con and with a sort of carnival atmosphere, a comfy summer cosplay is a must. So Twilight Sparkle with a small adjustment is one of the two I'd like to have....
so then I started thinking of a second that'd be comfy in hot weather. I was still thinking ponies, and I figured Rainbow Dash or Fluttershy would be good summer ones since I could do RD in athletic-style clothes and Fluttershy would be suited to a breezy dress. I hate dresses and pink.
So I figured, "Well, if I can put it together really cheap I could do Rainbow Dash for the con".
I don't particularly like Rainbow Dash AND NOW I AM INTIMATELY PLANNING THE DETAILS FOR A CHEAP SUMMER-FRIENDLY GIJINKA. WHAT THE HELL?

Things Emmers has to do before Friday:

-Tailor the sleeves on my dress
I am going to just thrown in a few simple stitches to keep the sleeves tightened so I don't have to worry about huge safety pins popping open and jabbing my wrist.

-Sewn snap closures onto the jacket for Brandon's costume.
I am sewing little snap closures onto the corners of his cape and then onto his jacket so it just snaps into place and the closures are hidden under the lapel of his jacket. BOOM SWAG. But I accidentally sewed the hole part of the snap facing the wrong way on his jacket...

-Wig stylin'
Merida's wig is still a bit too 'uniform' looking. I need to make more little skinny tight curls all over da place what.

-Carve the bow
Brandon sketched out the Celtic design on the front of the bow for me last night and I am going to use the wood burning tools on the bow so it's all carved in there n' what not. It's going to be...complicated...

-Quiver get
It's surprisingly hard to find a quiver...

-Make arrows
I have some wooden dowels that I am going to cut in half and make into fakey arrows. But all the saws are at Brandons folks house so I have to wait. Sad face.

It's funny, every convention we say we're packing the weekend before and um NOPE.
