Free! Iwatobi Swim Club cosplay shoot outtakes!When my friends and I first heard of "that swimming anime" called Free!, this is pretty much what we expected:Free! Iwatobi Swim Club cosplay shoot outtakes!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Not that there's anything wrong with that hahah, but all we were expecting was to be able to laugh at how exploitable and full of fanservice this show could be because swimming would require everyone to be half-naked. Although it started out that way, the more episodes we watched, the more we realized...
We were wrong. So wrong.
What we got was a heartwarming coming-of-age story with endearing characters and interesting dynamics. It spoke of friendship and learning your self-worth and figuring out what drives you forward.
I'd write more about how I feel about it but it would take up too much time and space over here, so here are a couple of posts that have already done the job well:

Kony 2012I've gotten a lot of requests to talk about this, which coincidentally happened right along side my two political cartoons taking off like wild fire. Dunno if it was an accident or bad timing, but right now it seems like everyone wants me to talk about Kony... which I honestly don't know why because I'm not a journalist and everyone else is making such a big deal about it I don't know what else I could offer to the discussion other than "yup, this is going on, check out the links."Kony 20123 years ago in Personal More Like This

Onward to 2013 my steed!
I would first like to take a moment,
and congratulation everyone for surviving the end of the world.
give yourselves a pat on the back,
2012 was sort of a foggy blur,
it seems like such a long year,
but I can't recall anything 'major' that happened,
so I'm just going to call it a good year and move on, haha.
2013 will be a very different year,
The year of Finland Adventure!
There was a lot of stress leading up to it,
but now that I'm here,
in my little shared flat in Helsinki,
it seems pretty relaxing :'D
I've already meet some awesome people from all over the world,

Banzaicon 2013 Re-CapFirst off, WOW. Thank you guys so much for the amazing support on my newly opened wig commissions. In less than 24 hours I had filled all of my slots. I am still accepting commissions though! There's just a bit of a lineup. And you never know some people may drop out so I will keep things going as swiftly as I canBanzaicon 2013 Re-Cap2 years ago in Personal More Like This
NOW! On to Banzaicon! This con re-cap is LONGGG OVERDUE! But April was just such a whirlwind month for us.
Banzaicon was even more amazing than it was last year, which was hard to do because last year was PRETTY DAMN AMAZING. This con has one of the best staff that I have encountered at cons. Everyone really truly cares about the quality of the con and the enjoyment of all of the attendees. It blows me away each year when I see their committment and philosophy around Banzaicon. And let's not forget the attendees!!! EVERYONE IS SO WONDERFUL AND SO WELCOMING!!! You guys all make this con as awesome as it is thank you so much for having us! <3
Sakura Con 2013WELL Sakura Con is just around the corner!! 8D I'm really excited that we get to go down to Seattle for Sakura Con this year, because for a while there we were pretty sure that it wasn't going to be possible for us to go at all considering that we have Banzaicon and GCFF/Supanova Expo right after it. But thanks to friends and getting our stuff together we managed to make it work! I can't wait to hang out with our con friends :3 and I also can't wait to meet all the people who have posted that they will be going to SC this year! So many new faces to meet, and so many familiar faces to catch up with 8D I'm looking forward to a nice, chill hang out con. More than likely we will just be hanging around the lobby near the fountains or up around the windows on the fourth floor outside the artist/dealers hall.Sakura Con 20132 years ago in Personal More Like This

We'll be holding panels (including some new panels for 2013 that we're currently working on, gotta keep it fresh!!), premiering a new episode of one of our series or a CMV and generally just hanging out at the con. I think I also told one person that we were going to slow dance into the moon SO WE'LL BE DOING THAT TOO. All for the sake of science.

Our first Tiny Top Hats Goal almost accomplished!So I wrote something about this on our Facebook page, but I wanted to ask all you guys here if you had any ideas too!!Our first Tiny Top Hats Goal almost accomplished!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
On our online shop (Found here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/littlecasaroo) our sales are at 329 in total. We started this business in January 10th of this year (2012), so it's always been my goal to get 365 sales by Januaray 10th 2013. So that means 36 more sales and we've accomplished the very first business goal I made!
I'd love to hear any idea of how to promote this idea and get the word out! I was thinking once we get the 365th sale, maybe of giving a free hat randomly to one of last 36 people who got a hat! Or maybe offering a free gift with any purchase for the next 36 customers?
Anyone have some ideas? I'd love to hear!
I've appreciated everyone's support this past year in helping boost our confidence in a dream I've had a long time to own my own business and to do something creative and share me and my crew's crazy brains in the forms of Ti
