Post AX Update!

1436250958444

BACK FROM AX! Look at my loot!! It’s literally… two artprints :D I bought the Ahri print like… Day 1 I think. Because it was the only print that I’ve seen with Ahri’s New Dawn outfit and it looks AWESOME :D YAY. And then Day 4 Gee surprised me with the print to the right of the fawns that I’ve had as my bg for… like a year. and on the inside I was squealing cause he got me such a cute print that I kept not buying cause it’s been expensive >>

Also with the loot list is my Ahri tail, it feels like another plushie so I put it with the pile for now. Then I looked over again and it totally looks like Poro is licking the underneath of it >> hay poro haaay~ Oh and my brother bought the harvest moon bunny =3 He would tho.

So YES. This was my 10th AX I’ve been to, and it seriously has been such a ride. I’m not expecting to stop going anytime soon unless life really catches up to me xD But this year was special and I celebrated it with hoteling again with a group of friends~ It was ALOT more fun than last time I hoteled and the room was even smaller xD There was one point where I got stuck sleeping in the middle of two people and realized… I don’t like it. -,- I also realized I may get annoyed with living with certain people xD So I’m glad it was just a weekend and I got to go back home and sleep nicely in my own bed~

Met a few new people and even found out how small the world can be! Even at a what… 80k+ attendee con?

Cosplaying this year was wonderful cause I didn’t have to worry about falling apart or missing part of my cosplay. I even finished Gee’s cosplay all nicely and packed it so nothing was missing :D

AH! Saw the Try Guys at the masquerade!! It was funny and wonderful~ Still can’t believe the group I thought would get awards… didn’t. And the groups I didn’t think would… did. But meh.

Other than that I tried doing a few shoots at the con but con shoots are always so awkward =.= Like… you get the options of fake bgs or concrete or greenery with more concrete. So I did get a few decent shots but will def be doing a proper shoot later :D

And of course pictures can be seen on my fb!

Working on it

DSC_0628sma

I actually wore Sailor Mars for a short amount of time the first day of ALA. I wanted something small and comfy that I could easily walk around in and set up the table and explore! But by the end of the day I changed back into my normal clothes~ We actually decided to see how the pink backdrop looks for pictures so I decided to do a few poses! This was… pretty much the outcome >.>;; Just trying to do more… interesting poses now xD But the backdrop… not so pretty for photos >.> I think it’s the lines… or maybe how pink it is o.o

That’s hard btw. Kinda how I feel normally in a sense? Doing something uncomfy and having to smile like it’s just fine xD FEELS LIKE LIFE XD or well. life as of late >.> But sadness is a feeling I won’t waste anymore on situations that really shouldn’t involve me in general.

It’s kinda funny how I make revelations SO late. Like… Gee would notice something and MONTHS later I would finally go “oh you know what? ______ is messed up” and he’d go “you just realized that?” >.> YES T.T I always thought my family was just weird but…. kinda been noticing how messed up it gets. so. I know people don’t have perfect little families and what I’m struggling with is the constant bombardment of expectations that I just don’t want to meet. That and a lot of the times it’s your family that’s holding you back from your potential growth. And I haven’t really found a great solution to that yet so when I do… I’ll share it!

But for now I think… I’ll share this bubz video. Although I watch her videos only when I have time (like I binge watch he blogs of a month in one day xD) her additude and outlook on life is how I used to view mine then.. somehow got lost. And now… and now it’s coming back :D So… yea. She’s been an inspiration to me o.o And it’s wonderful to be vertically challenged with her! XDDDD (we’re short… T.T #asiangirlproblems LOL) ->

Her and Ellen. Be yourself. Be kind. Take in the positive and don’t even bother with the negative :D Now doesn’t just reading that make you happier? XD

And we expand~

More post ALA posts~ This time I’m actually writing it from my desktop! xD So I didn’t get to properly take a picture of our booth before we started… but that’s ok! We decided to take up 3 spots and just use something different.. so we opted for canvas~ The display was stable but… we already found ways to improve upon it~ Just in case next time comes around~ But we have horrible luck (as always) with our table neighbors… not gonna single anyone out but when you meet someone for the first time you generally don’t want to go complain to the head of AA just because it looks like a display is blocking your side =.= It was quite flabbergasting (for a lack of better word) to have to explain how everyone else has more sight reducing displays yet you pick on ours. But hay. It worked out cause he spot actually ended up looking better the way she did it!

So who knows how long we’ll keep this display. We’ll probably change it around more to fit individual artist needs.

I’m also sorry for complaining a bit. I was just really hoping to make some friends out of our neighbors >.> (we even offered for her to use the other side of our canvas display… she refused.)

So yes. That’s part of my adventure in the artist alley this year. It got insanely hot after people started to pack in cause it decided to rain outside T.T The heat made it so unbearable… by the time I got out of a full ballgown I was so sweaty it looked like I just ran a marathon xD

Post con

Giving myself one day to relax,  play some games and clean up! Quite a good day in my eyes~ didn’t touch any finance stuff and tried my hardest to not think about tax xD

I bought a new steam game this morning called receatear, although my spelling may be wrong. You own an item store! It’s so adorable! ~~~♡ plus I love the little business aspect in the game.  With fantasy,  fighting,  cute characters… /fangirls

Anyways!  My loot is always quite small for these conventions. I bought a ram plushie who I do make super awkward but I need to show it in video for anyone to really understand. Also a cute zelda key chain in which gee has a link one~ we didn’t mean to match but … we did!
Also please excuse the heavy makeup. .. it makes me look and spkoo with you…

The first table…

am2-2012_11

In attempts to gather ideas for a new display for ALA…. I came across this xD This was my very first artist alley table in which we were duly prepared for xD Here you can see the back of Gee’s head and my ears popping out of a plushie stand xD It looks like we were setting up o.o memories though…. that con. It was a terrible con xD I still managed to break even but that was hard o.o Anyways… I actually still have that grey table cloth, might scrap it and get something alot more colorful that suits me more~ It’s sometimes hard figuring out a table scheme that suits us both cause he has such a bias of 3 colors >.> (it’s true, don’t give me that face gee)

Yep. Just thought I’d share. And they even marked the picture so you can see who took it xD Although I’m confused to if we were actually the subject of the picture? o.o Maybe our sign? Who knows~

Time to get some major cosplay work done today! Granted it’s just a lot of patterns and hopefully I can get around to finishing some cosplays that are stuck at buffering at 80% xD
