198. Makeup & Skincare for Cons/Photoshoots

Lets face it, we've all been to cons! Late night shoots - parties, hangout times with friends. Lack of sleep before and during the con. Pounds and pounds and I mean POUNDS of makeup on your face. The sun and dirt beating at you....and you come back crawling from the convention with new bumps on your face, horrendous eye bags (you might even crawl to the con with all that before lol) but please! Do yourself a favor and arm yourself!

***I should warn you now that this is going to be a lengthy post .... ***

Not counting this as an actual post but! I just realized DDD8< that stupid Disquis has been killing my comments on the blog and I have just discovered I have a bunch of comments from everyone from my other entries that I never saw because Disquis wasnt loading it since the comments were left via blogger TwT
I went ahead and disabled disquis commenting urgh. Stupid thing!!!

196. The Baron of Luxor

Anime Expo is simply a few weeks away and I've been trying to work hard on grinding out much needed work in preparation for Anime Expo. Juggling my time in between commission work and my own personal projects.
Crunch time starts....NOW. (well actually it should have started long before LOL but personal stuff got in the way ontop of lazyness as well - that much, I wont deny lOL)

And while everyone was enjoying themselves at Fanimu ( fanime) I  threw myself to work work work!

195. New lens!!

And I do not mean new circle lenses LMAO but a new legit camera lens~ It only took me what....years to finally cave in and get one...

I've had my dSLR for quite sometime now...probably over 3+ years??? I just havent bought a lens for it at all since I held out on getting it since I kept thinking I rather buy a new camera but oh well.

SO YES! ONE OF THE MOST EXPENSIVE THINGS I OWN lol (and thats saying a lot I think...) and probably one of the best things I've ever gotten for my birthday lol. Yay me.
I ordered my lens from B&H Photography versus ordering it from Amazon since I'd felt more comfortable ordering a lens from a reputable seller - one that specifically specializes in photography and video equipment and I've heard good reviews from several people. And not to mention I got free shipping with tracking with my order. I got mine in exactly 5 business days via UPS  (their store is based in NYC)  They also offer returns and exchanges on their website too!

194. Post Bday post & Top Photo Apps I use

Birthday came and gone...was pretty uneventful for the most part since I decided to go to work that day instead of requesting for the day off. Well, mostly because it was on a Tuesday. Which is probably one of the oddest times of the week. Same old same old at work. But my co-worker made some unicorn rainbow cupcakes lol (rainbow dash cupcakes anyone? - yes bronies ftw)

193. Fashion District, Food pr0n and prebday splurge

Don't really have much to talk about except for the fact that we had gotten some epic mad deals when we went to the Fashion District over the weekend during Cinco de Mayo!!! Hola!!! and Suprisingly enough a lot of the stores were open! We were all pretty worried a lot of them would be closed due to the Holiday....
but suprisingly enough a lot were open and I came out with quite a few fabric. My biggest find of the day was the 6 for $1.00 buttons! LOL. I probably bought like $15+ worth of buttons lol~

 These iPhone photos doesnt do the buttons I got any justice but you can see some of the ones we got~
bought some trims and buttons for Trinity Blood and Kuroshit cosplay for AX. Now the battle is to get through all my commission work and finish all cosplays in time for the convention x__X
