They don't tell you how hard it is to get back into posting on Livejournal after month-long hiatuses (hiatūs?). They should, but they don't. And the fact that I have things like Tumblr, Gaia, Lang-8, Sims, and, of course, schoolwork to take my mind away from it doesn't help matters.

If it makes you feel any better, my life hasn't been all that interesting. I've been in school, studying basically the same things I was studying last year. I'm now a linguistics minor in addition to a Japanese major, so there's that. Also, there is the fact that I will be studying abroad in Japan next year. Which, ngl, is pretty awesome. :D

I haven't really gotten into any new fandoms either. Except ASoIaF/Game of Thrones and Gankutsuou, which both happened this summer... yeesh, it's been that long. (e: OH WAIT I FORGOT LYCHEE LIGHT CLUB wow I suck. Yeah, Lychee Light Club too. Also that reminds me to say hello to my new f!s friending meme friends [ profile] astrokittie and [ profile] tasogare_n_hime. Hi! c:) I haven't left any of my old fandoms either, and I just got bit bad by the Baccano! bug so if I start posting regularly on here again it will probably involve a lot of squeeing about that show. Just like old times. :D

Which I suppose is as good a segue as any. I'd originally planned to make a post a couple weeks ago to tell y'all to go vote in [ profile] animetournament, but then I never did and by now we're down to the top 12 and my boy Jacuzzi got knocked out of the running so it's a bit late to make any exhortations to that effect. You can still vote though if you want to. :B No, the main reason for my post right now is this: who all is going to Anime Boston? Because I know some of you live around here or at least make it here for cons, and let's face it, we need to meet up. The really cool thing is I'll be cohosting a panel this year ("How Is This Con Different From All Other Cons? An Otaku Passover"), so if you want to stop by and say hi, I will be the one up there who doesn't have facial hair. Or if you just see me around the con, I'll probably be cosplaying Graham Specter all three days, and if you don't know who that is, look for the giant wrench. :B

So there is that, and also, I guess, what is going on in your lives even if you are not going to AB. I HAVE FORGOTTEN HOW TO END LJ POSTS

I decided to try and come up with human names the ponies would have if they were humans and not ponies.

Twilight Sparkle: Twila Sparks (easy)
Rainbow Dash: Rain/Raine/Rainbow(? parents must have been hippies) Dashell
Pinkie Pie: Wilhelmina Diane Pine (still goes by Pinkie, because she has pink hair and likes pink and, I mean, Wilhelmina)
Applejack: Jacklyn (aka Jackie, Jack) Apple (Applebaum? Appleton? Applesomething?) Her siblings stay Macintosh and Bloom, of course.
I do not know about Rarity and Fluttershy, though in the latter's case I think her last name should be Cheyenne or something. Maybe she is part Albanian and her first name is Flutura. :|a (Thanks, behindthename!) Okay, maybe I just don't know about Rarity.

Oh, also I went to Connecticon this weekend. Quick con report maybe?

Quick con report maybe! (not actually that quick) (really long actually) )

...And, yeah, that was in fact really long actually, but that's about it. So yes. I had fun. :D And if there was anything I forgot I'll mention it in a later post.

Also I will skip the Digimon meme this post, sorry. This is never going to get posted otherwise. Next time, y'all.

So in an awesome stroke of coincidence, my Graham wig and coveralls both arrived yesterday! This is especially awesome because the wig was being shipped from Hong Kong and wasn't scheduled to get here until tomorrow at the earliest (and the Wednesday after the con at the latest). Now I'm really glad I didn't pay for that expedited shipping. :P So now all I have to do is finish the wrench, pin the coveralls (which are way too big), and find some boots. And Connecticon is only 10 days from now! I'm excited. :D

Also, Wandering Son has supposedly finally shipped! Which... is a pretty big deal, considering I'd been waiting for it for almost six months. :| Of course, I can't celebrate just yet, seeing as I was an idiot and accidentally had it shipped to my school address instead of my home one. Luckily, I can pick it up when we're in the area this summer, but still, that was pretty dumb. Even for me. (In my defense, would you have expected it to actually ship before the end of the summer?)

On another note, Genkaku Picasso is an amazing manga. I've just finished the series (only 3 volumes!) and oh man, so good. In one chapter a yaoi fangirl learns that it's totally okay to be a yaoi fangirl, as long as you don't let your fantasies get in the way of your real life (and spoilers for the chapter )). More significantly, in another chapter there's a trans character who is judged at first, but once her classmates learn about her situation, they're totally okay with her and don't have a problem referring to her by her preferred name and gender from then on. Maybe that's on the unrealistic side, but it's always nice to see nuanced trans characters in Japanese media, and also it's really sweet. Heck, the whole series is sweet like that; it's one of those heartwarming weird-outsider-kid-ends-up-gathering-a-bunch-of-friends-who-accept-and-like-them affairs that I'm a sucker for (see: Kimi ni Todoke, 7 Billion Needles). Heartwarming wrapped up in occasional disturbing, true, but with Usamaru Furuya, really, what can you expect. :P BASICALLY YOU GUYS SHOULD READ IT okay.

I've also been playing a lot of Sims 3 lately - or at least trying to, since it turns my computer into a slow piece of crap half the time. Finally started a legacy, which is something I've been wanting to do since forever. At some point I'll have to install a mod so I can get more than 8 people in the house, which... I have no idea how to do and am somewhat worried about. @_@ But my founder and his girlfriend only just got married, so I figure there's time yet.

Now I'm going to knock out a couple days on this meme, since at the rate I've been posting I'll be lucky to finish this before school starts again. x_x No picspams today, sorry, considering the nature of the questions.

Day 12: Least favourite digital monster. )

Day 13: Least favourite character. )

Day 14: Least favourite season. )

Oh, also I have a job interview on Thursday, which is pretty cool. I doubt I'll get in, but I will try~!

First, a plug: [ profile] tehseto, who is an awesome icon maker, is taking requests again! So if you have an image that you want an icon made of, now is the time. :D You have to be watching her account to request one, but if you don't want to do that, you can give me the image and I'll put in the request. But you should definitely not miss this opportunity. :B

Next... um. Ordered a wig today. Looks like I'm going through with that whole cosplaying Graham thing... if it gets here in time, that is. :|a Apart from that and buying the other costume parts I need, the hardest part will be making the wrench. I've found a thread from someone with the same problem, and hopefully I'll be able to follow the advice they were given. For some reason I really want to do this cosplay. I just hope I can pull it off. D:

Also, was watching the Tonys last night, saw Mackenzie Crook, squeed like it was four years ago. Guess I'm not entirely over that crush. :| (He's still cute though. Geez, Mr. Crook, stop doing that.)

Day 11: Who do you think wore the goggles best? (WARNING: a few images) )
vethica: (Default)
I continue to be obsessed with Baccano!, surprising no one. Tried to look for merchandise the other day, found very little (except the CD, but that costs about 40 dollars, and the DS game, but I'll need a couple more years of Japanese before I can understand it). And it was unpopular enough in Japan that there are basically no doujinshi for it. Woe. Perhaps I can commission some fanart the next con I go to or something.

(...Speaking of the next con I go to. I may possibly have a sudden urge to cosplay Graham Specter for Connecticon. And may have already located all the pieces I need online. Someone please convince me this is a bad idea. Good lord, sir, you don't even like him!)

Have also been watching more of Madoka. It's about as great as everyone says it is. Very depressing, though. Poor... well, everyone, but right now Sayaka especially. ;_;

Day 10: Favourite season. (WARNING: slight heaviness of image) )
vethica: (awesome)
Otakon report! (WARNING: LONG) )

So all in all, Otakon was pretty awesome. ^_^

Loot! )

A meme! (LESS LONG) )

I think this entry has set the record for most tags in a post on my LJ.

Day 19

19. Character you’d like to go karaoke with )

This'll probably be my last post for a few days, on account of I'll be at Otakon. :D Anyone who's going, if you see a Tenho (the one in red) or Kiri Komori, odds are it's me. Say hi. :D
vethica: (awesome)
Flashing picture warning )






Also I know Anime Boston was a month ago but chronological order is for chumps )


vethica: (Default)
First of all, LESS THAN 24 HOURS TILL AB. *hyperventilates* Although I'm not really the most excited right now 'cause I realized I spent a fair amount of time/money on my costumes and they're pretty crappy. Oh well. Costumes are done except Light's shoes, btw. On the plus side, there'll be another Death Note photoshoot on Sunday (although... it may be during Cosplay Chess), and we have a team for Hyakunin Kuizu, which I've never done before, so if we get in, that should be cool. :B

Okay, something else. I just found out that Jian Ghomeshi (formerly of Moxy Früvous (which is a good band, btw; check them out if you like Barenaked Ladies)) is such a cutie. I mean, look at the guy. He's like Zach Braff if someone injected cuteness into him. Also, you know who else famous person is attractive? Johannes Brahms. For serious. (When he was younger, anyway.) Stop being so cute, famous dead composers. :|

Also, I just found out that Ash Ketchum's name in French is Sacha. For some reason that's really cute.
vethica: (Default)
I was going to make this part of a larger post, because I'm pretty sure no one cares, but then I realized that I had nothing else to post. So, uh, Lucas is out for AB and Tenho is in. Lucas's shirt was pretty impossible to find anyway (somehow ;A;), so this is probably for the best. I can find all Tenho's stuff on Amazon or probably in a store and he doesn't even need a wig. ~*~*~LAZY COSPLAY~*~*~

Ummm. So yeah.

EDIT: More TWEWY bidness (spoilers for Another Day?) )
vethica: (Default)
I've been having some thoughts recently - a rare occurrence - so I decided to commemorate it with an LJ post. An LJ post about my newest fandoms.

So the other day I got The World Ends With You. )
So, a couple questions. First, O.A., are we still on for Ness and Lucas? Because if so, we'd better get cracking, considering Anime Boston's getting closer every month. If not, well...
And second, is there a site like Court Records for TWEWY? You know, a complete repository with all the sprites and artwork and everything? I do know there's a wiki, and that might be what I'm looking for, but I could only take a perfunctory look so as not to avoid spoilers. If there's a better site, someone let me know.

I've also recently begun reading Vampire Knight, and, inevitably, I happened to spot a few similarities with a certain other popular vampire series that shall not be named. However, I'm pleased to report that the comparison is favorable to Vampire Knight. )

Also, Happy New Year.

Overall, I don't think I had quite as much fun as last year, but that may just be because the novelty's worn off somewhat. :( But not quite as much as really really awesome is...still pretty darn awesome. :D
vethica: (Default)
...So I haven't posted in two weeks, which is approximately forever in internet time. Sorry 'bout that. Homework's a butt. -_-;;

Obligatory leading-up-to-Anime Boston checklist )

...I think that's it. :D

On a related note: THREE DAYS *spaz*

Quick query

vethica: (Default)
Why do dubbers seem to think guys with long hair don't exist? -_-;; Btw, O.A., if you ever do cosplay Hun, I'll totally be your Attila.

(Also, someone needs to cosplay Beethoven. Now.)
vethica: (Default)
For those of you who found yourselves wanting more after reading the Deathly Hallows epilogue and haven't found it: I've found an interview with Jo that explains a lot, including stuff from earlier books. [ profile] littleyuzu, she of [ profile] theofficepuffs, recapped it here, and there's also a link to the interview itself. Figured I'd put that out there.

In other news, the Hare Hare Yukai dancers for this year's talent show have been finalized: Raven, Usa-chan, HG, O.A., and myself as Haruhi, Yuki, Mikuru, Kyon, and Itsuki, respectively. So yeah, some crossplay (both kinds), some stuff, it's all cool. If anyone is around around March or whatever you may want to check it out. Of course, that's assuming I can learn the dance by then. :P

(Also, Tyma? I guess you were right. D:)

As in, "Oh cwap, I fell down the stairs." yes, it is one word. sthu Usa-chan.

So Kabuto-kun is a leap year baby, eh? Just like Hani-sempai. I didn't know they had anything in common. Wow, that's...sorta creepy.

As you may have noticed, Anime Boston is getting closer, and I have made absolutely zero progress on my proposed Rock Lee costume. That's partly because I'm not sure where to start. I know several of you out there are veteran cosplayers - anyone got any tips for a first-timer?

And because I need something to rant about: I'M GOING TO BED TOO LATE. RANT RANT RANT.
vethica: (Default)
Seriously. Thing. It. Best. Anime Boston. W00t. I bought a shirt and some stuff at the art auction and a sketch of Kurama. What was really awesome was just having all these people who were just as crazy as us all in one place. Bonded over a common interest. Or somethin'.

Next year I want to do it right. You know, go the whole weekend, and everyone comes, and we all cosplay, and maybe do a skit or something. I should start planning my costume. I wanna be Lee.

So...I'm at Tyma's now and we're doing...stuff we do at Tyma's.

Tyma: *reading out loud from* Which Gaia NPC are you most combatible with? Which one do I wanna fight? Huh? *pretends to be confused*
