I am still alive, and I finally have some semblance of free time. Had a heck of a time trying to get through a backlog of articles for my blog site, delayed mostly due to my trip to NYC about a week ago. As if that wasn't bad enough, I have less than a week till AMA, and I still have a lot of cosplay work to do. It's gonna a heck of a week ><
First of all, NYC was pretty fun. Our hotel was one block behind the theater playing Aladdin, so I got the chance to see that (one of my top plays to see ^_^). As it turned out, the guy who played Jafar was the same guy who voiced him in the Disney movie and Kingdom Hearts games. For most of us, Robin Williams will always be the genie, but the guy in the play was ON POINT!! When Aladdin tricks him into getting them out of the cave without using a wish, he was like "He tricked a genie?! Ain't nobody got time for that!" ^_^ I even found the cutest little Japanese bookstore, Kinokuniya, two blocks down the street from the hotel. The entire upper floor was manga and art books, both in English and Japanese......total nerdvana! I also go to watch a good amount of Impratical Jokers, and although they frequently film in NYC, we unfornately were not victims of any of their challenges.
Once back home, I dove headfirst into the backlog of anime reviews for the blog. Finally finished those a few days ago, and worked on some Jpop articles too. And now, I am officially done with those until this week's articles come out. Other than that, I'm basically gonna immerse myself in cosplay construction. Since I don't have to time to question each move, I'm gonna do what works right now and maybe redo the cosplay at a later date. Wish me luck.
I'm also trying to cram for my karaoke song, something I've never had to do before. Since, as a point of pride, I never use a cheat sheet, I'm committed to memorizing the lyrics. Hopefully, everything goes well.
