I dont know if its fair to blame lazyness or simply just not having enough time to do /anything/ I feel I hear this/read this quite often from a lot of bloggers (those who aren't in the whole youtube vlogging deal and just doing this somewhat casually...
But I digress and admit that I've neglected this and a whole bunch of other photos sitting on my lightroom account waiting to be edited
So lets do a quick catchup and check point and hopefully in the next few months I'll be able to be caught up...I also still gotta work on a new layout or atleast a new banner ==;;; kinda getting sick of all the pink lol...jfc. I wish I invested more time in graphics lol...
First of all, I will not be attending J-expo, Yaoi-Con or AWA as I had originally wanted. Bro's getting married in October and September is a clusterfuck of preparation and I still have not looked into wtf i'm wearing
I guess this is gonna be another comprehensive post going all the way back to May / fanime!?! wow have I really been /that/ far behind omfg QwQ I will try to post entries for each month or atleast for the cons i've attended......wow.....orz;;; this is getting quite ridiculous lmao....
its kinda crazy to think we're already in August OvO;;; more than halfway through the year. wow another year another year! thats kinda crazy! Lets keep going!
BIRTHDAY MONTH. GRADUATIONS. FANIME! OH MY. I think I did a May post lol but I don'tthink I went I don't think I actually went through and did a real fanime post yet, I'm stil debating on when or how I'll do that, probabl another giant photo dump. I didn't take much BTS photos as I expected or really did much since I didn't have a badge for that weekend anyway. It was still fun nonetheless. I flew up to San Francisco a few days prior to the con for my sisters graduation from UC Berkeley. Whoo. No photos LOL whut. I'll probably throw them on the fanime post lolol...I flew with Virgin America this time and wow didn't realize they had TVs on each seat woah woah woah lol and a really funny music video style informative intro.....lol...yeah...if you ever flew with them you'd know what I mean. But wow I've been spoiled by Southwets free bag check-ins! Oh well. I ended up flying Southwest back anyway so it was all daijobs.
these photos pretty much sums up my San Fran - San Jose weekend. Maybe I'll be able to do a more comprehensive post on it later... /: ugh fanime post when will that happen...I'm soooo backlogged aha...didn't get much chance to explore SF as I had wanted. We did the graduation then dinner and boba then it was qucikly back to cosplay grind finishing up Popstar Ezreal for sisters bf )': we both were pretty much crunching it till the very last minute >w< but for the few free hours I had, cupcake took me around the city :o and when I mean city I mean Jtown /: and little shit got drunk off half a beer. Weakshit.
Jtown has a severe lackage of asian cosmetics and lashes. I was really surprised /:
I didn't get a chance to take much photos of the cosplayers that were at fanime coz I stayed in the hotel too long, took my time getting ready or was doing other peoples makeup that by the time it was time for me to do mine i was just...tired LOL.
the earliest I've made it out to the con was 2....ahaha...wow... orz
I mostly shot League of Legends and Dynasty Warriors for my sister OvO and her friends.
Checked out the gal gathering. Whoo pretty ladies. Photos to be up on my fanime post.
MET UP WITH TOSHI AS ALWAYS HOLLER. I potatoed most of the time at the con /: it was hotter than I had expected in SJ and I just couldnt...lol I was burnt out from school and etc that it was just a pretty chill con to me and having to meet friends again *v*
Went to some bar to watch some indie jrock cover bands play. It wasnt even a far walk from the hotel. More shots. Imprompt shoots and then flew back early Sunday morning (partly hungover lol as always but I alteast didnt end up in the tub this time)
Ended up editing some photos while waiting for my flight back to SD
it was a super quick flight, painless and easy. No crying babies! I flew early just to avoid all that!
Going through security wasnt too bad QwQ thankfully! It was memorial weekend so I was worried the lines were gonna be bad. I get anxiety flying LMAO or traveling only coz I'm too scared to miss flights shiet. And I heard horror stories of flight delays with SFO ):
This pretty much summed up the most eventful portion of May lol
hopefully I'll get through all my photos eventually and not forget stuff wow ):
After all that traveling I can pretty much say I want a new suitcase, one that rolls on all 4 wheels not 2 ahaha shit is annoying omg.
JUNE / JULY:
Back in SD I had to stock up on my favorite lashes intime for AX :o
one does not go to AX without an arsenal of lashes (not to mention $10 a pack for playgirl when their normally $15 ughhhh plzzzz and lets face it, everytime I go to a con and drink theres always lashes casualties ahaha. //rips them off and puts them on table and hope I find them again the next day...///
actually all those werent mine ahaha I wiiissshhhh I grabbed 2 packs for a friend as well. But best believe I'd be back for more lol....
the train didnt stop as soon as I got back from Fanime coz AX was just going to be arond the corner and I was determined to finish Dream of Doll WHICH I DID MAKE HAPPEN but welp ahaha she suckered me into doing Delphine too.....==;;;;;
Between Dream of Doll I was also working on K Project props! Well, I tried to but man thats sword was annoying till I found a relatively close looking one from the party store and painted it. Added that little craft foam portion on the handle. CLOSE ENOUGH.
I tried making the knives too but it turned out really that that I was just like. Nope. Not giving it to you. LemmeremakeitbeforeIgiveityoulol so no daggers for Fushimi at AX /:
I didn't book any private shoots for AX but imprompt photoshoots happened nonetheless.
Toshi surprised me at AX too since we were all convinced no show!!! whutttt
Toshi surprised me at AX too since we were all convinced no show!!! whutttt
and yes I'm an otome game producer and boy band manager now lol
COCO CURRY I THINK IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE PLACES TO GO TO FOR CURRY EVEN IF IM TOO CHICKEN SHIT FOR THE SPICEY NESS. LOLOL IT WAS STILL SO GOOD. THAT OR I WAS REALLY HUNG OVER AND TIRED AND HUNGRY ALSO CAN YOU NOT APPRECIATE THE FACT THAT YOUR GRUB IS SWIMMIN IN A LAVA FIELD OF CURRY LOL AND YOU GOT WARM RICE OMELETTE HOLLLLLLLLLLERRR. YOU GOT YOUR PROTEIN, YOUR SODIUM. YOUR CARBS AHAHA. Ok I get really excited over curry LMAO
June basically went by a blur honestly, it was all really just a count down TO AX and when AX ended it was pretty much like 'ok wtf, what do now!?!'
Didn't get to see K movie during AX due to some BS but they did a nationwide showing! Woohoo thankfully SD had a showing too but clearly it wasnt as epic as the one in LA uwu we didn't even get a merch booth or any posters to give away /: and wow it was $15 a ticket. hurt much aha....but gotta support the homo kings....from there went to PRIDE. What a hot mess. No one was fabulous at all LOL. I could go on a whole rant but nope nope nope.
Overpriced alcoholic beverages (Jaegger shots were like $10 each!?! I asked for Vegas shots and the bartender gave me Jaegger....without the redbull...and when I asked for rebull this is what we got LOL . NOPE. After this we walked some more around the strip and ended up leaving and going back to the land we know; Clairemont the land of Asians and bar hopped lol........
I was suppose to go hiking the following day to find a waterfall for a future shoot but that didnt happen.....==;;;;
I thought about trying to finish Chunli or attempt to see if I wanna brave the con cosplay life again and did a trial run onChunli but it looks like Anime CA isn't happening for me and I cut my hair again (more like the top layers) so lol no Chun Li but iwas fun costesting her nonetheless. A goal!!!
speaking of cos test I filmed a tutorial that I scrapped and redid it to do a photo step-by-step tutorial for Reira Serizawa! Lots of pinks, champanges and etc but I haven't gotten around to editing them yet either....hopefully...I will get to it too uwu;;; I really gotta hand it to those people who makes tutorials. Its really time consuming and annoying to get the filming technique down; lighting and etc. And when you get that down, you gotta worry about BG music!?!
July proved to be a pretty crazy month in between Anime Expo and Comic Con....
I wasn't expecting to go to Comic Con at all even though its basically my backyard. I have a more comprehensive comic con posts coming up (expect it months later AHAHA seriously though)
I took the kids down there on Saturday and when I mean took them down, throw them to the curb and drive off only to come back a few hours later to grab them LOLOL!!! And I spent the rest of the day/evening to early morning sunday and I mean the sun was coming up early morning.....lol playing league. Check out my ghetto set up with the e-ternet cable running through the door. Thankfully no one tripped while I did that.... /: wireless internet is not reliable when your playing a stream game lol fffffff sister woke me up sunday saying she got me a pass to go so......instead of sleeping I crawled my zombie ass to the con QwQ;;
I STILL DO NOT UNDERSTAND WHY BAYONETTA 2 IS COMING TO THE WIIU. WHY WHY WHY COME BACK TO XBOX BB YOU KNOW YOU BELONG THERE UGH.
I'll honestly probably end up playing it at someones console coz I'm not buying a Wii-U.
I remember we bought a Wii years ago just for brawl and after that was over, I was over it.
NEW PROJECT! WHUT. AFTER YEARS I'M FINALLY WORKING ON SPIRITED AWAY AHAHA
REMEMBER THE POST I DID BEFORE RANTING ABOUT SPIRITED AWAY!?!
REMEMBER THIS SHOT:
BEST BELIEVE I HAVE NOT GIVEN UP AND ITS GONNA HAPPEN.
I ALREADY STARTED WORKING ON HAKU'S COSTUME HUEHUEHEU AND FINALLY FOUND A HAKU AND CHIHIRO AND A LOCATION.
WE *ONLY* HAVE TO HIKE LIKE...3.5 MILES UP AND ANOTHER DOWN LOLOL....

Before I did mention I cut my hair and babum:
no I didnt shave the side of my head (though I wish I had the balls to do it lol)
and unfortunately my layers were still too long to do a proper fohawk ahaha but maybe someday!? so I ended up looking like a pomp..../: oh well
AUGUST! WHUT. YES WE STARTED AUGUST WITH A BANG
Fashion District trip, doctor appointment in Glendale and then back down to San Diego for a late afternoon/early evening Howl Photoshoot in the span of one weekend!
@w@! head is spinning ahaha so exhausted, getting too old for this yolo shit lol....
school starts pretty soon for me too so I am defintely on lock down from now till the end of the semester in December. No cons for a while so I decided now would be the time to take on commissions! So I grabbed a few stuff at the FD to get started on a Project K uniform commission and a *another* Howl's moving castle commission. Photos to come soon~ I got a few more commissions to tackle as well and my goal is to finish them all before the end of the year wow...@w@;; with that being said, no cons for me for the rest of the year but lets hope Katsucon might happen??? If not.......oh boy.....matsuri....
ok wow this post took me a while to compile and finish up @w@ so hopefully I can scrub through the rest of the stuff I need to work on and hopefully we'll see more content here.....
AND HOPEFULLY SOMEDAY A NEW LAYOUT OR BANNER AHAHA SOMEBODY HELP. AHAHA IM SO UNCREATIVE LOL
