I haven't stepped into a book store in so long, so this is going to be a very boring post of me just lamenting the days of when I was more literate and my sad inglorious attempt to get back to it lol...

Lang Leav recently announced it on her tumblr page that she is being carried by a bigger publisher now so that her book of poems is going to be available more on a national/international scale, clearly I jumped on the chance to get on that.  Before it was on a order to print basis - you'd have to place your order, the publisher would print you the book then ship it to you. I'm not a patient person, more like I hate anticipating for it to come. q___q and in the end, with shipping and etc I'm sure I would have ended up paying the same amount, her book is also available on Kindle for half the price but there are certain items I would prefer to have on hand.

And who doesn't enjoy reading about kick ass unsung heroes of the past - especially underrated women spies?

This last part made me lol:

Because yes, I actually would like to read more about vikings and Norse mythology. I would go back for the Jack The Ripper book, true crimes and Titanic book too....when I'm less broke because I should honestly have bought my key card for school instead of these loo oops.

Nana Osaki Costest 1

I'm not very active on my blog since school started and I am behind on photos from AX but to slap some content back in here lol I'm going to spam this with some cos test from last week. I personally do not consider myself much of a cosplayer anymore to be honest /: but there was a time when I did cosplay. Too bad I stopped lol coz. Reasons. But once in a while its fun to slap an assload of makeup on and pretend your someone else.

Throw back from 2006 

Fast forward 7 years later  LOL re-visiting one of my favorite manga/shows of all time. Ai Yazawa's NANA *w* I hope 7 yrs later I was able to do it alittle bit more justice. I'd still love to shoot someone else as NANA lol or BLAST but till then, its fun to throw your plaid and leopard together :D

I dont have the right nail polish color of the accessories since this was just a quick test shot. I'm hoping to redo this again when my friend is ready to do Ren *W* hahaha.


not PS smoke. Don't smoke. Its bad for you LOL

Wig haaaaiiirrrr

See ya later rock star~

Theres a few photos on this post thats not even on tumblr, dA or on my facebook fanpage.

Oops. I disappeared again

But no, I'm not back. I'm still forever backlogged on AX photos...which was a bout a while ago. But you shouldn't be surprised because photographers are notorious for being forever backlogged...I've even neglected my fanpage...but I guess this is another filler post till I get around to start doing more photo dumps from shoots...and...whatnot.... so here we go, a months worth of insta-dumps. Coz. I. Can. Or you can follow me on instagram @dearxx to see more enteratining videos and not so entertaining videos of the shit I do with my life when I'm not doing anymore more productive... I'm convinced Shingeki has taken over my life coz I bet I spend a good chunk of my time reblogging Shingeki stuff on tumblr versus doing anything really productive and using other stuff as excuses for my absence or unproductivity...

So, school started, I didn't go to J-expo where all the cool kids went or to Kcon coz I'm an old man and decided to be a hermit to recover from AX and Nisei Week. Oh yeah, I did go to Nisei Week. Oops photos are on my instagram and on my PC. I didn't really catch any cosplayer other than my sister so she has photos up on her FB.I'll link it as soon as I remember.. owoll Nisei Week was too hot and crowded to really do anything. Curry House was great as always and very filling.

I did this to my dog:

Hes gonna grow up to slay titans...He just needs his emblem and working on the gears then hes done. Maybe hoping to bring him to PMX since if I recall correctly the hotel is pet friendly :D eh eh eh?! 
but I need to get through Dream of Doll and another cosplay before I can go back to working on this little guys gears 

look at me wasting company time making blog entries that are useless when you probably seen these on IG and Tumblr. Oops. 

Took a break from playing Dynasty Warriors and I picked up the new map pack for COD over the weekend though I probably only clocked in less than 10 hrs on the entire game as of late .__. and I'm most likely behind on my reading again for school coz I decided reading RAW scans of Shingeki was more important orz....
and browsing tumblr for wigs...and among other stuff....and shamelessly browsing for new makeup to refill and replenish all the other pans I've hit )':

with the new shingeki obsession Anh has made it a point to make us costest at 12am most nights LOOO ok idk why but I guess in a way its easier to do it when everyone is asleep. Less judgy stares when you don't have a room ಠ___ಠ

Better off cos testing NANA looo hurpdurp. Also did a makeup test for Levi but its not for me, I needed to practice before I get to mess with Ash's face .__. I'm not postng photos of it here lawwwls
had to use some mad eyelid tape to get moe eyes and to get sleepy angry slanty eyes for Levi. Could use more work but hueeeee
Need new lenses and a wig lol. Wore purple lenses but luckily they turned purple on the photo hurhurhur and used a old sebby wig oops
