Current Cosplay Plans for 2016

I haven’t cosplayed super seriously since Cruella De Vil and I am CRAVING cosplay now.

And I do realize there are a few cosplays I just haven’t either made the time for or haven’t had the money for, but regardless, I think compiling a list of the ones I aim to accomplish by the end of this year should help me satisfy some urge to walk outside dressed as L just so I can say I am at least trying (and so I  can continue procrastinating my English assignment and put off studying for my CS midterm- it’s not that kinda compiling. Eyyyy. Okay, shutting up now.)

I Sora (from the anime: No Game No Life)

Of course, this was planned as a couple cosplay with Alya and WE STILL INTEND IT TO BE DONE AS SUCH. We’ll just crop each other into our cosplay pictures. Why not? Or take advantage of the separate world and use some magical explanation to explain why we’re apart. (Maybe Tet kidnapped me?? But that doesn’t really make sense since they both have already explicitly said how they can’t be outside of a certain number of meters of each other before…)

I mean, Alya’s first ever wig was for her Shiro cosplay! Super fluffy and white like Killua’s hair, it didn’t suit it all that much, but her styling skills have come far in the few years and I’m sure she can fix it up properly now :3

II Wednesday Addams (from the tv show (and movie): The Addams Family)

Back in my crazy moving/traveling days, I have seen a buuuuunch of the original tv shows’ episodes on many different, suuuuper long flights. That’s where my love for the show began. But honestly, I don’t remember too much of them now, yet when the remake movie came out, I watched is super excitedly and now this Wednesday is the first one I think of whenever I heard Wednesday Addams 😛 So as strangely inconsistent as this will be for my usual original character love, Imma cosplay the reboot version. Oh wyell ^_^

III Nishinoya (from the anime: Haikyuu!) 

You might remember my fangirling over this awesome guy in another post when I actually decided I definitely would cosplay him. Imma just link that here now instead of boring you with more gushing over him :3

I’d better stop with the pictures now before I descend into a downward spiral of hunting down all amazing pictures of him…

IV Ellie (from the Disney Pixar movie: Up)

Now, I’ve wanted to through together an Ellie cosplay for the heck of it as a #CasualCosplay ever since I bought my overalls, but I never found a shirt I was happy with! I mean, I do have a button down blue floral shirt that could do in a pinch, but I reeeaaally want to do her justice. And I do have a yellow button down, but the collar is bedazzled with golden sequins….(My wardrobe is fabulous, I am aware.)

V Tohru Honda (from the manga(/anime): Fruits Basket)

One of the first manga I ever read, and definitely the first “longest” one I finished :3 I always thought to cosplay Tohru when I wanted to try out cosplay but not commit to it too much back in middle school. I still never have, but let’s see, maybe I will now!

(Even though now I’d totally rather do a gender bender Hatsuharu or Hiro 😛 Oh snap, I reeeeaaaaally wanna do a Haru now….)

VI Hatsuharu/Haru (from manga(/anime): Fruits Basket)

I think it would be incredibly fun to play around with his alter ego AND his usual personality ❤

VII Either Mikoto-chan or Kashima (or both?!) (from the anime: Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun)

Mikoto-chan:

Kashima:

This sly, Tamaki-level fox BUT WAIT-

Still gets more girls than poor Mikoto-chan which is why he’s so pissed here xD

But it’s okaaay. They both are so amazing and lovable I’ll probably just do both ❤

Wait, is this number VIII or IX now..? Ugh, forget this, it’s been fun, but I’m no way deciding all the cosplays I want to do in an entire year now! It’s fun to sponatneously decide to do one or discover something in your closet that would be perfect for a character so you just DO one.

Either way, this has been fun and I’ll hopefully think up of many more to dress up as too~ :3

Until later tonight when I die over the Haikyuu! season 2 final! (Yes, I’m a day late, but you know what, I was dying after having my gym lock-in and all that excersize. We all know how crazy it is to think of me excersizing at all, let alone the majority of the night, so yes, I slept early and missed my Haikyuu! watching time so I’ve been resisting the urge to watch it until tonight. YAY; get hyped!)

Nishinoya/Noya Cosplaaay~!

So in light of my current crazyyyy re-obsession and one-track mindset of Haikyuu, I plan on doing a Haikyuu cosplay even though this would be an ideeeeaaaal group cosplay. (Those are kinda hard to accomplish at the moment when all my group cosplayers have moved to different corners of the world D: )

Anyyyhoo, the only characters I seriously thought to cosplay were Hinata, Nishinoya, and Tsuki, but it’s no surprise who I chose. The wild, awesome Nishinoyaaaa~

And now to spam a thousand pictures of Nishinoya to convince myself even more that this is going to be damn awesome :3

Dun dun duuuuun!

(Psych- I’ll reach it anyways!)

 

ROLLING THUNDERRRRR~

Summer Anime Season- Start!

The new Summer anime are coming out this week~

And Alya’s already picked out a greaat Thursday anime (we finally have one :’) ) called Glasslip. It’s adorable, and it’s a simple slice of life anime too. So refreshing after (mostly dark) stuff like Black Bullet, No Game No Life, and Brynhildr in Darkness, etc.

Glasslip

Now, I have to mention other anime too, before I move on to critique it properly, which I’ll probably do tomorrow. I’m lazyyy now ^_^;

Liiike, how I actually found us this anime, but it soo isn’t my cup of tea. Gore. Blood. Icky gruesome killing scenes. Scary eyes. Aaaand weird sexual pleasures out of killing people. O.o God help meh D: It’s Tokyo Ghoul, and I heard it’s story was amazing, so I told Alya to check it out. She watched it before I did, and fell in love with it. She’s gotten another one of her friends to watch it with her, so I don’t have to unless I really can stand tolerate it for that long. It’s thirteen episodes, so…maybe?

Tokyo Ghoul

Theeen there’s the one I’m reaaally looking forward to for Monday! Akame ga Kill! The one with the epic combinations of voice actors that I heard about in the end of May. I posted about it already, so links to the list of it’s cast as well as the summary of the story is available there~

Akame ga Kill

A cover form the manga, but you see the characters split up like this~

And that’s all for now!

So, to sum up my Anime weekly so far, it’s
Monday- Dragonar Academy, Akame ga Kill.
Tuesday- Nothing so far.
Wednesday- HxH(the next arc started ❤ ), Glasslip.
Thursday- Tokyo Ghoul (maybe?).
Friday- Nothing so far. 
Saturday- Mahouka (koukou no Rettousei), Rail Wars, SAO II.
Sunday- Haikyuu.

I think. The anime calender site I use is telling me they come out on different days, but my anime site had them uploaded according to this, to the best of my time maths 😛

Weeell, whatever. I’m going to go watch some TV before going to sleep now. Phew, I’m beat!

*Poof*

What Am I Doing with my Life- Er, I mean Summer Vacation?

Yeah, that.

Within three days of my Summer vacation, I was already at a loss for what to do with my new found ample amounts of free time. I just had no idea what to do. All the super productive things I put off until after the exams were far too tedious, and all the tv shows I planned on watching and starting just didn’t seem all that interesting anymore.

Soo what HAVE I been occupying myself with, hmm? Chronologically, it went something like this…

I I watched all the recent updates on the anime I’m following, but y’all have heard enough about my anime addictions recently, eh? 😉

In no particular order: No Game No Life, Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei, Akuma no Riddle, Ishuukan Friends/One Week Friends, Brynhildr in Darkness (don’t know the proper Japanese name >.< Le Alien One, as I call it with Alya 😛 ), Dragonar Academy, Haikuu!, and possibly others I’ve accidentally left out…

II Getting super hooked on one TV show- Once Upon a Time.

And I do mean “hooked”. Like hooked on rereading all of the Artemis Fowl books or the Harry Potter ones in one go, with not a single day without reading at least half a book. Yeah, that kind of obsession xD So I binge watched the first season in three days. And while doing so, put all me anime on pause, until I got a bit exhausted of watching episode after episode. So, when I started season 2 of it, I watched my anime along side it. And now, reaching ep 15, I’m a little not in the mood to watch it anymore, and have moved on.

But moved on to what?

III Back to anime! But it’s not like I’m watching seven anime at  a time, naw, I decided to start another NEW ONE. Mekakucity Actors!

And it’s pretty cool. I’m surprised. It’s a let down in the way Deathnote was; there was so much hype for it, and because of it’s excessive praise, I expected too much from it, and was disappointed. Just a tad though. I was told it was complicated, which it sort of is, but everything ties together PERFECTLY and comes full circle, so I don’t find it all that hard to follow. It also isn’t nearly as confusing as people make it out to be! Not one bit. That’s where most of the disappointment lies. So far. Yeah, it’s also an ongoing anime, and I’ve just seen the first ten episodes so faaar. For now. Let’s see how this show goes :3

(It’s a sci-fi, partially mystery, partially thriller?, kids with super powers, teen pop culture like Japanese anime show thing. I made it sound so terrible…Go check out a proper summary here, so I don’t feel like I just ruined any chances of you watching it just cuz of me…)

IV Well…I have yet to find out! I’ve moved on from tv shows, and I’m not in much of an anime mood, but I am starting to watch a bunch of movies from the eighties on Ayesha’s recommendations.

On the list, so far in this order, are: The Breakfast Club, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Pretty in Pink, and then a few more recentish films, like this one Kamil told me to check out called Keeping the Faith. It has Tom Daley from Night At the Museum in it :O Must watch!

V How could I forget this- MAH COSPLAAAAY!

I’m cosplaying as properly ish as I can without chopping my hair (as wigs are impossible to find in the right color here…) to yet just my second anime con! This one I do plan on going properly with my friends, and we are planning a proper group cosplay. Alya, Mnaz, Nahal, and I have put an insaaane amount of effort into our cosplays so far. It deserves it’s own post. With pictures, and everything ❤ And I’ll give it one too. I can’t wait for the actual con though! Just two days to go~ I hope it goes perfectly~

(I just bought my Liz and Patti guns today, with the spray paint and painter’s tape required to create the true Weapons look of those two sisters. I paint them tomorrow 🙂 And yuuup, our group cosplay is of Soul Eater, and I’m Death the Kidd!! #Symmetry )

(No, I am not going as Blackstar, soldgisdlkfjgdoirj!!)

[VI? While all of this is going on, I got back to Freaksworld, only to find that it’s just as empty as before, EXCEPT Freak’s back on the site, and he just made a new hang out- a Kingdom of Freak’s. It’s got all new people in it, and I’m the only oldie original freak there, plus Freak of course. (Pfft, the dude made a new account and wants to be called King now. Like I’ll ever call him that x3 ) I have also made an alt account! :O It’s just cuz I joined a Clan- the Fukushima one that Maya/Lizzie/Tidal started up a while back. She’s asked me to join all her clans every now and then, but I’ve always turned her down. This is the first time I actually considered it, and decided to try something new. I actually like it so far! I have the approval of Natsu for being Frostie, and I has a twinneh called Green~ I also found Am (Amnesia *buncha numbers*) from Freaksworld too! It’s pretty cool, even though the chat is dead recently cuz Tidal ain’t forcing people to join in as she’s stuck at her dad’s- The House of Terrible Internet. Plus there’s talking to new friends like SnowyEvil too. ]

Aaaand the Sun is rising now >.> I better go now!

Imma start watching the Breakfast Club now maybe? :3

Ah, how I’ve missed rambling on this here blahg ❤

 

So for Cartoon Day..

After coming up with like three separate costume ideas for which cartoon character to go as, and that isn’t even counting the anime ones (Timmy Tuner from Fairly Odd Parents, Spanelli from Recess, Ash Ketchum from Pokemon, and Tyson Granger from Beyblade.), nor the ones I thought up for Ayesha,I finally got all dressed in my large green sweater, black skinnies, and a size too big black converse that I stole from Que (yuuup, I was THAT dedicated to my costume. I could’ve just worn my grey boots or black flats- but NO, I HAAAD to wear black converse. Big ones, at that.), and went as Number 3 from the Kids Next Door!

Numbah 3

 

It worked that I had straight, dark hair. And I’m short, so passing off as a kid has never been a true challenge. And I act like number three too, so that works ^_^

The best part was that I could burst into song- THIS song!

Rainbow monkeys, Rainbow monkeys, oh so very round and suuuper chunky!
Bringing loove wherever they go. Everyone’s made of a biig rainboooow!
Oh, red and orange, and pink and bluue,
Rainbow monkeys, Rainbow monkeys, we love yooou!!

And it would make total sense.

RAINBOW MONKEY!

The coolest thing was when I told Zaid I was Number 3 from KND, and he just had this *mindblown* expression on his face, scanned me, then went “you are!!”. But it wasn’t my outfit he was talking about, he meant that I AM Number 3. “you ARE Number 3!!”

It was fab.

Then there was this total #Beelive moment where I found out that apparently Alya went as Number 3 as well last year on Cartoon Day =D I had no idea, and I didn’t even discuss with her my costume for the day! So perfect, my beelive buddy =3

There was also some other really awesome costumes. Zaid just became “cartoony” and not a cartoon character. He wore a Daffy Duck T-shirt (one I wish was mine >.> ), jeans, SHORTS on top of the jeans, a blue strippy TIE, and a hoodie. He looked retarded and utterly hilarious.

Shayan’s costume was utterly amazing too. He wore a suit, and when asked da hell he was, he would play a song on his phone, unbutton his shirt, and flash the superman tee he was wearing underneath it. It was pretty coolio.

But not nearly as coolio as the conversation/argument/debate-ish we were having at the end of Computers.

Which was basically debating upon who was cooler- Shayan as Superman, or me as Number 3. And who had the cooler song (really, what kind of question is that? Rainbow Monkeys FTW!)

He went on how he could fly to and back from the Sun.
Pshaw, I’ve been flying since I was four! And bro, I AM the sun.
He kind of stopped there. I didn’t even get to say that without me, the sun, he wouldn’t even HAVE any super powers =(

This other dude, in Physics, Rana, thought I was the Green Lantern =O Cuz I was wearing this ring that looked like his, with a silver band, and a green gem. (Aka my Mist Guardian Yamamoto ring. Well, I named it such today, when I tried on Alya’s legit Guardian Yamamoto ring, and it matched the color of the stone in that one perfectly.) It was just SO awesome and totally made my day. I’ve been saying that I am the Green Lantern since I was in third grade. And now someone thought I actually was, even though I was dressed as something totally different. But still- it’s a part of me, and it was recognized, so I feel awesome.

Green is a huuuge contributor to me. It’s  a part of me, it simply is, for so many reasons. Ireland, Green Lantern, the Mint Chutney, Number 3 now maybe?, Shamlocks, clovers, and sooo much more =3

But still, it was fun today ^_^

Lyla went as OceanBird, Mandark/Suzan’s mom from Dexter’s Laboratory. Ammar went as TJ from Recess. I’m so glad I didn’t go as Spanelli after that =P But I didn’t see Ammar wear the hat at ALL, so I felt pretty ripped off =Y

Alya went all out and wore her Batman tights, but that’s all that was cartoony about her outfit =/

Amal stole Alya’s comic hoodie.

Tomorrow’s the day we wear white. And I don’t own anything white except for this one shirt that’s got this rainbow spider web on it, which kind of defeats the purpose of the day being themed white…I’d totally wear that, but it’s packed away in my Summer stuff, so I don’t think I’ll be able to get it out…Then the only other thing is my special special sequin snowflake sweater, but it’s too sacred to wear just cuz of the white theme. So I’m still figuring out what to do for that.

There’s also a Pajama Day, and that is the day I go yelling “Eh, Pajama party, is it?!” to everyone, and hoping beyond hope that someone gets that I’m quoting Mad Eye Moody.

Well, that’s all, I guess. Now to actually out a small theory that I firmly believe in. And all theories/philosophies deserve their own posts. It’s only natural that they be given such importance.

So now I poof.

nope.

HA HA, I deciiiieeeved you!

Desi to the extreme

*poof*

Going to an Anime Convention?!

SO there’s an anime convention sort of happening HERE. Close to here, anyhoo.

And I wanna gooo! My friends have already decided everything by now. We’ve been planning this since Monday, but with all the changes, I didn’t post anything until it was all figured out. Although I’m sure the cosplaying will have some improvizing added on to it…inevitably =P

Ayesha, Mehrnaz, Alya, Shayan, Mateena, maybe Zaid, Shayan, and I are going. Or at least plan to. Half of us have yet to get permission. Yup, I’m a part of that half. Duh.

One thing that annoys me is that Ayesha’s tagging along even though she doesn’t watch anime, and refuses to. She’s only seen a few episodes of Vampire Night -.-” Even her mom doesn’t want to let her go, since she knows she isn’t even into anime.

Now, we were reaaaally stuck on what to cosplay as. We decided to do a group cosplay, so we needed a show with loads of characters..I was being all original, and saying let’s go as the BayBreakers, it’d be easy, and we all have the beyblades from our childhoods =3 But then Mehernaz and I got into a quarrel over being max -__- and I was told I should be Tyson, since I’m just as overconfident xD But then we dropped that in favor of the Bleach Captains! But we couldn’t afford their costumes, not properly at least, and so we had to think of something else. I suggested Isatski clan thing since all we’d need was to paint red clouds on long black coats. It’d be the best and saddest economical cosplay ever. But then it was ruled that I should randomly go as Ash Ketchum (I have no idea how that got thrown in xD ).

But now, we’ve decided on going as the guardians from Ka

tekyo Hitman Reborn! And I hadn’t seen it til they told me we were to cosplay as characters from there. So now, we’re ordering their rings off of Amazon, and we’ll go in their “suit modes”. Since otherwise, on such short notice, we can’t pull together individual costumes. Ugh, I wish we had more time! Then we could’ve cosplayed properly, and we’d be awesomely decked out in anime gear =(

Grr. But this’ll still be cool. I’m some Yamamoto dude, so I shall have the Mist ring? and I’ll be weilding a sword and shit, duh. I’m supposed to wear a black blazer (but I lack any black clothing, so I shall be borrowing one of Zaid’s blazers. He apparently has five black ones -.-“), a blue dress shirt (borrowing Mateena’s since mine has pink flowers on it xD ), and black dress pants. I just realized that my dress pants are too long, but are fine with heels…but if I’m cosplaying as a straight guy, I shouldn’t be wearing heels…I have these other black combat-ish boots that might work, but I’ll have to try it out. But I was supposed to be this other dude, le bandaged boxer, since he was yellow, the SUN. But since I refused to give my sword to anyone else, I decided to switch with Zara.

katekyo-hitman-reborn-ost-back-cover

I’ll be dressing up as the guy with the Blueish shirt. The cropped black hair- I completely coincidentally typoed that as brack O.o –  I was going to be the one in the front in red, but Alya called dibs when I wasn’t there >.> And, there’s also the bandaged boxer on the right =) But they look so cool here…it’s going to look great when SIX chicks dress up as ’em, and one dude.

Oh yeah, remember Tsuna? No good- Tsuna? Well, that scrawny shortie is being cosplayed by ENRIQUE of all people. The tall, fat dude with a beard is going to pretend to be a five foot four middle schooler. That’s gonna work. Here’s what Tsuna looks like.

And cuz I saw this, and found it A-MAH-zing- Some Tsuna fanart, that’s just mindblowingly awesome ^_^

kr_reborn___tsuna_by_mahayuu

I’m even planning on buying a wig, and chopping that up for the hair. Since I got rid of my layers, I can’t french twist the longer ones out of the way, and hide them under the shorter ones like Mateena is…And Alya’s got her short boy hair, which works for her. And whoever’s going with the white hair’s going to have to get wigs anyways. Contrary to Alya’s economical alternative…

BLONDE ALYA MOMENT TIME-

So I’m supposed to go as a white haired dude first. We’re trying to think of what I could do with my hair in case we don’t find any white wigs. Hairspray? But my hair’d still be too long…Then Alya came in.
“Just put powder in it.”
me- “I’m not putting talcum powder in my hair!!”
“Noo, the normal Johnson and Johnson baby powder-”
me- “That IS talcum powder!”

And then we had to explain to Alya why we were dying laughing. Cuz I said I wouldn’t put talcum powder in my hair, and you basically said, oh, put Johnson and Johnson baby talcum powder in it instead! She just added a brand to the talcum powder to make all the difference.

Alya’s a blond at heart. She just is. There’s so much more to tell. Like the time she went blond at her tution…or the time Amal got one part to her math test wrong….I think I’ll embarrass Amal now, since Alya gets enough of me all the time at school ^_^

Sooo what did Amal do? She got her test back, and on this one hard question, she’s solved everything correctly except one part. And so she looks at it. And she has written the following-

1+1=1

Ladies and gentleman, Amal when her brain is dead. It doesn’t happen often, but when it does, it’s brilliant.

Now, I got cram school, so byyyye~

Ze Out!
