-editing and learning new things on Lightroom :O ooh aah.
-learned what not to do on the grill abd bbq
-learned to plan better weekend adventures
-carne asada fries
-running around the train station only to fail miserably...
-shot a vlog (on tumblr)
-sewing and lots of sewing! and ah still so much work to do! ): and so many more shoots to plan! LOL
-I also learned that the princess bambi series look best when one is wearing lashes ;A;
its a go big or go home type of lens
I wanted to try and go with a very gloomy ish supernatural ish feel and theme to the shoot, mixing in modern clothing with traditional robes (I brought the purple kimono and the drapery fabric with me to help dress the set) and made sure I picked the right locations. We shot in beautiful Balboa Park in Downtown SD. Hannsel was a trooper and was up by 4 getting ready ;A; needless to say my butt went to bed 2 hrs before 4 LMAO....and got up...around 6 or 7 to race down to the park to meet up. We wanted to shoot before it got busy and over packed with people! Surely around 8 or 9ish runners started crawling out and around noon it was packed with children and more runners. Good thing we beat the morning rush and managed to sneak onto 'off limit' areas LOL to shoot hahaha!
We wanted to try and sneak into the Japanese Garden but I guess the cameras all gave it away lol. They charge $50 for anyone to come in and do a 'photoshoot' I got away with it last time but alas. And apparently their expanding the Japanese Garden and have planted in Cherry bLossoms?! whut?! So I'm def checking out their preview during the Sakura Festival next month *u* but they dont officially open the expansion till 2014....
and shows you the Hi-Res Giant photos since apparently, Blogspot makes em smaller ;A;
this is what we run on...LOL
Hannsel was a sweet <3 and gave me some Sees candies for
V-day :o super niceee /creycrey
and crunchy! which is strawberry chocolate with
waffer crushed stuff inside? o_Oll it was interesting...
oh Japanese sweets....so odd lol
After the shoot we went to the Swap meet to pick up more fabric LOOOL. I ended up picking up a new set of fabric for another photoshoot with Hansel hopefully soon enough! 8D but ah! I still gotta finish the ones I need to do for the shoot up in Lake Balboa ;A;ll in Van Nuys and another one before my sisters Spring Break! aaaah OMG LOL.Costume overload.
PS: THANK YOU ANTHONY FOR THE NEW EDITION OF LIGHTROOM AND CS5! looool
(yes folks, I've been lame and have been using super old CS3 ;A; and old Lightroom too)

FOR ANYONE WHO FOLLOWS ME VIA TWITTER, FB OR EVEN INSTAGRAM, YOU GUYS MUST BE GETTING MY RANDOM SPAMS AT THE WHEE HRS OF THE MORNING COZ SOMEHOW THATS WHEN I ALWAYS DECIDE TO PLAY ;A;!! AND ALWAYS END UP BEING SUPER TIRED TO WORK THE NEXT DAY. DUH JEEZ I WONDER WHY....LOL.
INCASE YOU GUYS HAVENT BEEN TIRED ENOUGH OF SEEING MY STUPID POST AND COMMENTARIES ON FB/ TWITTER/INSTAGRAM, THERE YOU GO AGAIN. OF COURSE. MINUS THE SMUTTY COMMENTS THAT GOES WITH IT LAWLZ.
But I swear this post has some form of relevance O_Oll but before we get there, again. Hakuouki SPAM. Since, as you guys know, my roneri self picked this baby up on V-Day loooool.
sorry for the shitty 'screen caps' these were mostly taken on my iPhone and spammed on twitter everytime I got to an 'interesting' point on the story.
Right now the path I'm going I'm clearly trying to shoot for the Okita route but I somehow manage to keep getting events with Saito as well, which I saved on a seperate game file. If anyone is interested on me writing up a guide on how to get to the Okita route just let me know.
His route is one of the longest tbh, Okita, Saito and of course Demon captain Hijikata has the longest ones from what I heard O___O;; and as you can tell, I'm barely halfway through the game ;A;!!!
then again I partly cheated coz I durped around on the DS version before, saw the anime and read spoilers from 4 Shiki
after you BB as soon as I get far enough LOL
still havent gave it to her to shoot LOL Not to mention
think I feel I made it too short LOL.
I'm stoked to have a photoshoot on Saturday with Hannsel for natsume yuujincho
which I'm sure I spammed here before but I decided to spam about it yet again *u* lawlz. Our call time is at 7am zomfg so early!!! and its a 30 min drive from my house to the place we're shooting HAHAHA whut. Hoping we can swing by the swap meet afterward so I can pick up materials for our Howl's Moving Castle shoot too *u* hnng!!
I kind of really wanna shoot a video for this photoshoot but how can I shoot a video AND shoot/direct a photoshoot at the same time?! lol...oh my. We'll see. Plus I might have to borrow a friends point-and-shoot just for video, since the shitty vivitar I have is well. Shitty. LOlz.
Apparently today is also Ash wednesday- what are you guys giving up? I'm a terrible sinner and cant seem to give up coffee or alcohol <!--3 I'm going to hell
PS: I DONT UNDERSTAND WHY WE CANT PURSUE YAMAZAKI ;A;
I'm also kinda spoiled by the SUSUMU YAMAZAKI from Peacemaker Kurogane and Ayu-nee </3 lol.....................

will probably edit this post later on when I get that together lol.
Photo dump blog for this past week /:
yay unproductivity LOL but! Looking forward to something exciting next weekend. Lol. Well, I personally find it quite exciting. I'll be shooting with Hannsel a new cosplay *u* hopefully this will be a start of some new cosplay photo dumps. Its been a while since I've met up with a local cosplayer 8D since most of em are up in LA! So it was a suprise to know there was one in my neck of the woods lol...well, we're probably 20-40 mins apart xD but still! I'm used to driving almost an hr to get to Shin's house ):<
durhurhur lovely orange Rachel Ray cookware that we won at a raffle from our company xmas party. You would be disappointed to see what we were cooking with before xD;
I just discovered how to do this trick without PS LOL....its as simple as adjusting your lens while you pressed on the shutter O_O /n00b
Apparently these are new M&Ms where they have WHITE chocolate inside. Its really more decorative than anything LOl....I'm not a big chocolate person and when I do eat chocos, I prefer white chocolate /: give me a year and this will be gone LOL. My roomate could devour the regular ones in no time while it takes me weeks to even finish a Dove Bar >_>;;
>___> we like Kool-Aid...too much...
Someone asked me on tumblr what I use for my eye make...lol...lots and lots of eyeliner tbh. When I'm not feeling lazy I'd add on mascara and eyeshadow. but lately, just eyeliner once again.
and this is my eyeliner collection....O___O;;
and I've raved about the NYC waterproof pencil liner for ages. Its my HG for liners to use on the water line and it cost less than $3! bwahahaha >8D
my other HG liner for the bottom liner to help avoid racoon eyes at the end of the day is the Maybelline Dramatic Eyeliner, which is the retractable pencil version of the cream pot. A-M-A-Z-I-N-G.
I have a bad habbit of loosing all my measuring tapes. I started with 7 when I first started sewing. Then it went to 5...then 3 then 1. And then None.
And yes. Yay. New Leopard leggings 8B
my mom keeps insisting I throw these away. I cant part with them. Their incredible comfortable and I like to call them my 'starving artist look shoes'
lawl. But really. Their just that comfortable.
Theres 2 sneakers I'm gearing after. Well. No. 3 actually. One of them is the Jeremy Scott Wing Sneakers in Black x Silver. The converse dragon shoes. and then I posted something on my tumblr - someone had on black sneakers with studs on em! I just need to get me a pair of lace up vans and stud em my self. but since I work in an office where I barely wear sneakers anymore, I havent been in the mood to really search ):
I found a old pair of pants too. I havent worn these for almost a year /: I guess I dug em out when I dicovered 2 of my most worn pants - 1 pair of jean and another pair of Dickies have holes in em ): def need to get a new pair. All my pants that are 'work' appropriate - meaning ones I can wear on casual fridays...are beyond patch work lol but I keep insisting they can be patched up LOL. All my other pants are too vi-gei for work or just obnoxious LOL...so yeah....
Skyped with Shou last night with the dog and I posted up stupid ridiculous webcam videos with the dog on my tumblr ):
Finally getting organized with my sewing stuff!!! Their no longer in one big plastic bin dumped and having to dig in there to find what you're looking for! Q___Q
Finished Ash's top for the Sakura shoot. Gotta work on the bottom piece. It always worries me it wont fit but I gotta remember how teeny tiny Ash is but still ;A;ll/spazz
