Newest episode of The disFunctional Fire Ferrets http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GVHJYmFPZlw&featurelcp
With those two up, we're looking into doing some new stuff too. Primarily some DC Comics projects and some more Avatar projects. I also hope to finally start filming Behind the Bulter (Black Butler) Episode 1 soon, because we all know how long that one has been on the backburner XD
Also, if you're looking for our CMVs, just a quick reminder that they're on out Vimeo site https://vimeo.com/user9598094/videos
If you guys have any suggestions, feel free to post 'em here! I'd love to know what you think and what you'd like to see next
Finally, fanart of Mako's female alter ego from the new disFunctional Fire Ferrets episode, made me nearly pee myself this morning 8D
Alcon 2012What an amazing con. It topped last year's Alcon (hence the chant buzzing around the con "Best Alcon Ever") and I was just so happy to be a part of that and meet so many amazing people that my Facebook literally exploded after the con ended. EXPLODED WITH MANLY RELISH THAT IS. I was going to wait until I had all the photos from the con before typing out this journal but meh, I've got time now and I've got energy SO LET'S CONQUER THIS SLIDE!!!Alcon 20123 years ago in Personal More Like This
Myself, VandorWolf and Valdrein got into London Saturday morning and after going through the obstacle course that is the International Visitors way through Gatwick airport we were greeted by a sleepy KellyJane who had woken up at 5am or something crazy like that to come get us at the airport (weloveyou). We spent the day with Parle in stinky plane clothes and with about 3 hours of sleep each which just made everything far more magical (except for the magic show we watched in Oxford Circus which was crap... I mean what kind of magici
Alcon 2012 and EnglandIt's been a crazy two weeks here in Vancouver for us XD We were guests at two of our cons in Vancouver which were on back to back weekends! It was a lot of fun but it's been cosplay-o-rama and con-o-rama none-stop for 2 (going on 3) weeks. Alcon will be our third con, so we're prepping and resting up for it so that we can show everyone the best time possible and have an absolute blast ourselves! Last year was amazing, this year is sure to be 100% better with :iconvaldrein: coming along. I'm so excited to see Parle and our friends from Alcon and Banzaicon again! I've missed you guys!!!!!!!!! Plus I can't wait to meet new people at Alcon this year I'll watch the rain as I touch all your faces... and something about fire... I don't actually know the song I just use it out of context.Alcon 2012 and England3 years ago in Personal More Like This
We're running a number of panels at the con, including one we're doing for the first time (Makeup Panel). We'll also be premiering Episode 3 of Kingdom Bros which is, for lack of a better word, terrifying.
Just saying, Lala's Vid, July BirthdaysI was thinking today how I needed to make a journal out of this and share it with you all.Just saying, Lala's Vid, July Birthdays3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Today was the first time I've been outside in weeks. (I was sick). However Alot of times I wouldnt go outside because I honestly would either hate the way I look, or didnt want people to see my skin. Today, I felt a lot better so I wanted to make myself go out. My skin looked really bad, and I hate going out cause of my weight. Thats such a silly thing to say, but honestly it does get me down sometimes.
My mom asked me if I wanted to go shopping today with her. I normally say no, but something made me just.. really want to go outside. I was reaching for my shorts and then my mom grabbed my dress and asked if I wanted to wear it out. Honestly I didnt know if I did or didnt. Usually if I do go out I dont try to look good. In fact I usually just run around in shorts, short sleeve shirt, flip flops, no make up, and hair in a pony tail xD I was staring at my skin at the time.. and I knew th
Aang for a Cure: FDP Charity FundraiserHello everyone!Aang for a Cure: FDP Charity Fundraiser3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've been thinking for the last month or so about FDP's next charity event. It's been a while since Nova's Pray for Japan campaign (relief for tsunami victims) and I figured that it might be time for another project.
I've been talking for years about shaving my head to cosplay Aang. He's my favourite character in The Last Airbender, and although I've cosplayed him before that was a while ago (aka I'm not satisfied with that costume XD). To kick my ass into gear to do this, I've decided to shave my head for cancer research. Shaving off hair for cancer fundraisers is a pretty common thing to do, but this time there's a twist when you make a donation of any size to any cancer society (I've provided links to some major ones, but feel free to donate to any local organizations or organizations in your country that I may have missed!) reply to this message and include 1) Where you made a donation to 2) Who you want to shave Aang's head: Sokka, Zuko, Azula, Katara or Toph

Even if it is random & out of the blue.
Even if you feel like a total doofus.
Go tell your friends, family, lover, neighbor, your neighbor's dog, a squirrel.. Go on a love spree.
You never know if it is the last time you'll see them.
If you're fighting with someone, stop. Tell them you love them. You never know if that would be the last time you talk to them.
Make life full of love. Not regrets.

It is common curtousy to not question someone you don't really know. Right?
You're walking down the street and see a gentleman in a wheelchair with cuts and scars all over.
Typical initial reaction: Oh, that person has been through something to make him that way. Try not to stare and continue about your business.
You wouldn't run up to that stranger and ask in their face, "HEY MAN. WTF IS WRONG WITH YOU? WHAT ARE ALL THOSE MARKS ON YOUR SKIN? WHY ARE YOU MISSING A LEG? WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOUR ARM? WHY ARE YOU SO WEIRD LOOKING?"
Why would you do it on the internet...?

Saboten Con Line-Up and Stuff!Yeah! Stuff!Saboten Con Line-Up and Stuff!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So Saboten is in a week. Thankfully I'm not frantically trying to get stuff done because for the most part...it is done. Speaking of not trying to get stuff done--I'm in a really tough and demanding semester, so I won't be sewing very much. I'm taking a little break until December or otherwise stated. So we'll see what happens then.
But anyway, Saboten is coming up and I'm most definitely looking forward to it! I'm particularly excited for this year for a number of reasons. One: it's probably the best con in Arizona, two: it's in a new, fabulous location, three: we have fabulous panels selected, four: we have an awesome skit lined up for the masquerade, and five: LiKovacs, the cosplayer I look up to the most is going to be a guest there.
Here's my line-up!

Anime Revolution Review + Avatar VideoAnime Revolution ended a few days ago and I'm still riding that con high! In my opinion it was a stellar con with a really clean and professional atmosphere/vibe. It was the con's first year, but to me it ran (and looked) like a much more experienced con. I've heard a lots of criticism of the con, but not from the people I ran into at the con itself. Everyone I came across seemed to be in really good spirits and had a positive opinion of the con. I know that there are some tensions are Vancouver cons at the moment, but in my opinion the more the better! I'm not going to side with one con or another, to me that'd be silly, I want all the cons to succeed cause if my hometown was con central than I'd never be bored!!!

I was Daughter of Evil Rin (or if you want to be technical Riliane Lucifen d'Autriche) and got a few pictures of that. We went to a massive Vocaloid gathering which you can see here http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=440256672682781&set=a.294442450597538.63933.277157875659329&type=3
The highlight of my day was when these little tiny kids came up to me and said they wanted a picture with the princess which was adorable.
I was Bak... and I really need to re-make the pants. Before the masquerade I lost my hat on my way to the restroom and started freaking out (that hat literally makes the cosplay). I don't know how long I was looking for it (along with Den Mamma and other nice people) before this amazing girl (also in the green room for the masquerade) found it! Thank you so much! <3
We got "Best Technical Performance" or something like that for our D.Gray-man skit with :iconj-o-i-ful-cosplay:

Videos - A few of you have noticed, we don't post videos as much anymore. Well, recently we posted two CMVs that we were so happy to accomplish with others. But we haven't done fun skits in a long time. Half of the reason we don't get much filmed anymore is because we hardly cosplay together anymore. We used to cosplay every weekend together, or at least hang out together. Now it's like.. no one has time anymore. Trying to schedule between working, school, family matters, etc.. It's hard. And it's sad, but I really hope we can still get together to do stupid things at least once in a while. It's just been hard. Sometime soon, I'm hoping we can open all of the awesome mail we've received. We haven't forgotten! We're just waiting for the right time when we're all free.

I kinda want people to do me a favor, (I doubt anyone will)
but FOR NOW ON, if anyone sees a comment (weather on youtube, facebook, or whatever) and someone calls me a boy and you think I am girl LET IT GO. Or if someone calls me a girl and you think I am a boy... LET IT GO.
dont try to "correct them" because then its gonna become a troll like always and everyone argues about me
For now on I DONT want people correcting others because in the end you can't MAKE someone believe you, and in the end only I KNOW the TRUE answer.
So from this day forward My gender and Sexuality will be UNKNOWN. NO MATTER WHAT IVE SAID IN the past, videos, interviews, im done- 100% on this earth can't believe me in the end.
JOEY IS JOEY. PERIOD. END OF STORY.
dont worry guys. Im kinda taking a mini break from youtube. but when i come back I'l be making a very important video about my GENDER. and ONCE and for all it will be taken care of. I just hope we can finally put an end to it
