Comic Con! :DWent to MCM Expo Comic Con today with :iconThe-Shadow-artist: :iconamyisalittledecoy: :iconCorrupted-Dreamer: :iconLurgie63: I actually think it might have been the best day of my life. There was so much cosplay it was unbelievable, and we were some of them, dressed as female AvengersComic Con! :D in Personal More Like This
Freaking amazing day~~ got on a train at 12 minutes past 8 this morning, and 2 hours later we were in London getting off the DLR to the MCM Expo. The first thing we heard was "OMG LOKI!!111" as my friend was wearing a Loki helmet. On the way we started to realise just how many cosplayers there were.
We spent the morning wandering around the inside area, buying a few things. I got an arc reactor which I added to my costume (I was dressed as a female-ish iron man). Then we sat and had lunch, and just as we finished, the sound of "AVENGERS ASSEMBLE!" resounded from behind! It was as if our bodies went onto autopilot; we turned on the spot and joined the massive parade of growing marvel superheroes that we

The day started off with everybody bringing in balloons which we all blew up and filled the main corridor with. Seriously, the place was FULL of them O_O it was brilliant, I'll try and upload a few pictures at a later date. Of course, it didn't help that certain years tried to pop them, but the deputy head thought it was brilliant so stopped them from doing it We had Maths, which is now study period, but nobody really did much apart from eat sweets and stuff, talk and listen to music.
At breaktime we also did a plank down the corridor. If you guys don't know what planking is, it's literally where you lie face down on the floor in random places - the more inappropriate, the better. Everybody in the year was doing it so we completely blocked off the corridor. The teachers once again thought this was brilliant.
Then, after that, people started up a reinactment of the fenton video. If you haven't seen it... Type 'Jesus Christ in

Me, TSA and Amy soon became known as the 'suicidal' ones, because literally, in every game that required us to run and go fetch something, we split off into pairs. One of us would ditch our guns and flat-out run and the other would cover them with either one or both of our guns.
In the first game, called Zombie, our team entrusted me originally with this book that we had to get into the front room of a church-like structure, while the other team had to defend it. Seriously, this book was like, half the size of me! (Okay, granted, I'm depressingly short, but still!) Soon enough I just ditched my gun and ran for it xD TSA took it at one point, and got it super near the church before she was shot so I took over and ran up to the church with it... but I forgot which room was the front room and ran straight into the firing

To those who don't know, the Frankfurt book fair is, to quote from their website:
The Frankfurt Book Fair is a meeting place for the industry's experts. Be they publishers, booksellers, agents, film producers or authors - each year in October, they all come together and create something new.
The Frankfurt Book Fair is the most important marketplace for books, media, rights and licences worldwide. About 7,400 exhibitors from 106 countries, 280,194 visitors and over 10,000 journalists.
Hybrid is going to be in front of them all. I'm a total whirlwind of nerves, excitement, terror and I don't even know what else. Of course, nothing may come of this at all, as there's LOADS of books there, but it's worth a shot right?!?!

The company that said they'd publish it if the beginning was more exciting has unfortunately closed their commissions. So that's a no go for now.
I sent it off to a few more literary agencies. One wasn't interested at all, whereas another said that they really enjoyed it but wasn't sure how well they as a company would be able to sell it. I have, however, two options as to which way to go, and both are promising.
My gran knows an editor who she thinks would be willing to take a look at it. I'd get some professional advice on it and it's also a way to potentially get my foot in the door for any literary agencies she knows. But there's only a small chance of that, and these might be very small literary agencies that won't be able to help me very much. However, it'd be cool to get some advice.

We went to prom on a double decker bus which was freaking awesome, although the parents did swarm it at first and try to take pictures of us. Loads of the girls were like "OMG ITZ JUST LIEK WERE FAMUS!1111" and we were like, that's not a good thing, seriously. XD And then when we got to prom the other people in our year were swearing at us and making rude gestures and laughing at us which as you can imagine wasn't great, but we've had four years of this so you kinda tune it out after a while. Unfortunately prom pretty much went downhill from there. The dance floor was like 10ft by 10ft for a year of 90 people

So I am happy today because they finally put me on anti-depressants Nothing too strong, only Prozac, which is good because the side-effects aren't that bad at all and it shouldn't take too long to fully kick in (2 weeks, they said). But they'll also hopefully help me sleep which is nice, and I can still drive and stuff with them, so s'all good! For anyone that's worried, I'm not gonna have a sudden change in behaviour or anything like that - if anything, that good behaviour is going to be stabilised!!
Also I'm applying for a new job, which is awesome so hopefully no more being treated like shit when people's medications aren't ready. So here's hoping to getting that job!!

first of all, like all first days, it was pretty boring. but, the thing is, that... it was different. My teachers treat us different, because we're older, and seniors, and... it's nice. There was very little rule-going-over, and it was just pretty chill. Plenty of jerks in my classes, but whatever. They're usually pretty easy to ignore. Also, I just sort of have this feeling of.. positive-ness this year. Like, be nice to everyone who needs someone to be nice to them. I kind of want to change the way people think, and make them reconsider judging others so harshly. It really bothers me, because I have a "protector/mediator" type of attitude. Nonono, it sounds dumb, but I mean that quite literally. But I'm not going to get into a tangent about that~! vuv;

NOW, this evening, as I walk in the door to the home of the dogs that I watch, WHAT should I behold on the carpet flooring?!
BUT A LOVELY PILE OF DOG VOMIT.
Now, I'm not the kind of person who freaks out over puke. So I calmly and rationally take the dogs' toy basket and place it over the puke, to avoid further [unfortunate] spreading of aforementioned pile of dog sick. I decide to check out the rest of the house, to ensure that there is no more damage.
While I search, I am displeased to discover:
A. One pile of dog poop, courtesy of a "Rockie", male chocolate lab, and
B. One partially dried puddle of dog pee, suspectedly courtesy of the same party.
I debate my options. I'm not sure if the sick was from Adrian (female, golden retriever), or Rockie. Adrian does have a history; she has previously vomited in the absence of her owners. However, my suspicions lay with Rockie, due to the fact that I know that the No. 2 was generously

I have never found a companion who was so companionable as solitude.
Henry David Thoreau
I always thought Thoreau’s comment was simply a word game— ultimately not of much value and false at its core. A Valentines Day in solitude should mean being all alone and alone means being unhappy, pure and simple. Still, it will turn out in life that the most alone we can feel is ironically in the crush of family and friends and even in the embrace of one’s Valentines Day companion— but lost and unfulfilled in one’s dreams and visions.

When a subject poses to have his or her photograph taken, the subject tries to project a message about himself or
herself by how he or she “poses”, by the attitude of his or her body language or facial expression.
If the subject is posed by the photographer, the body pulled and prodded into the desired angles,
the facial expression “directed”, it is the photographer who is intending to communicate a message.
In either case, posing or posed, there is undeniably something “false” in the representation.

Normally, this show contains extremely cheesy episodes and after a while I stopped watching because of that fact. However, tonight was the two hour season finale and I figured I sit and watch it. Surprisingly, it was fantastic. In fact, it's the best episode of the entire series (in my opinion).
However, that's not what I want to talk about. In the episode (spoilers), Rumplestiltskin reveals that he contains a vault full of all the dark magic he himself fears which is extremely terrifying to even think about considering just how dark he is. Anyway, long story short and after some messed up time travel, a gold urn gets pulled in from his vault and into the real world. The urn opens and out flows this icy blue liquid which slowly takes the form of a woman.

There is hardly any time left in the day for me lately and since the semester has been a hell of a lot harder, it's going to be difficult for me to even doodle let alone work on a commission. I try to be very good about my commissions and deliver on the expected time, but it's been very difficult lately.
Here's the point-I can't do any free commissions ... not now at least.

Long story short: my grades started dropping so I had to focus all my energy into studying EXTRA hard, my personal life got really crazy and hectic, more health issues, university interviews, panic attack in the middle of class, etc.

Sleep Walking ... Yeah ....So here's a fun fact about me:Sleep Walking ... Yeah .... in Personal More Like This
I'm a sleep walker.
It doesn't happen often actually. I've noticed that the only times I tend to sleep walk is when I spend a night somewhere I usually don't. For example, I rarely sleep walk in my own house or at my grandparents. When I sleep over at a friend's house, however ...
The most bizarre thing is that when I sleep walk I only do it for as long as it takes me to turn off every single light source. Friends, dorm mates, and family have told me that they've seen me literally pulling the phone and laptop chargers out of the socket, turning off Christmas lights, flicking off bathroom and kitchen lights, etc. I even turned off my niece's night light and I wasn't even sleeping in that part of the house.
So most of my night time adventures have been completely revolved around turning out lights ... I have no idea.
It's gotten so bad that every time I travel or spend the night at a friend's house I've had to inform them beforehand. This usually resu

I know I owe a lot of you guys commissions and I am extremely sorry, but most them I haven't even started on. I feel really bad about that. I really do enjoy creating art for you guys, but ... I'm afraid that if I don't have the proper motivation or desire to do it, I'll end up ruining everything.

For those of you who have the patience to read for some extra info!
When I started cosplaying, I didn't think makeup was such a major part of it. I was so hesitant to even put eyeliner because I'd think, "This character is a guy, I shouldn't look like I'm wearing makeup!" And I guess I was silly enough to think I looked enough like the characters I chose without doing anything to my face?
I can't find more pictures of my really old cosplays (which is just as well, hahah) from the time I didn't want to use makeup apart from these:
I cosplayed as Haku from Naruto. I don't remember wearing any makeup for this. It doesn't show too well on these pictures but I saw some others where the natural redness of my lips made it look like I was wearing lipstick even if I wasn't. I felt it made me look more feminine than I should. Haku is still a guy after al

So we went to Toycon last Saturday and as usual I... didn't really get to take pictures of toys and stuff. It was so crowded around the merchandise hall that I couldn't stop and take photos because people were constantly threading through and shoving.

I wanted to wear something simple and comfortable so I posted on my Facebook that I would wear my old Ichigo cosplay in his Karakura High uniform. The Bleach manga is so crazy now that it just made me miss the days when Bleach was simple.
I think this is the last decent picture of myself that I have wearing this, and it was taken ages ago.
And here it is on me again, with a new wig, better contact lenses, better wig styling and cosplay makeup skills (somewhat), and Kon plush that was give
On misunderstandings about cosplayThis is a topic I've been meaning to talk about for quite a while now. I finally got the motivation to when Sarah sorairo-days emailed me to share my thoughts on what cosplay means to me, and what I feel it really means to be a cosplayer despite all the misconceptions about the hobby. It's for this article on Random Nerds, in which Sarah shares her side of it as well.On misunderstandings about cosplay in Personal More Like This
Over the years, I've witnessed how cosplayers are constantly looked down upon, which makes people apprehensive towards it.
