Um, yeah. So much for updating every day or two. *facepalm*

Whatever.

I had to take Juna to the vet a couple weeks ago for an infection in his paw. He was roughhousing with Tri (probably) and ended up with a scratch on his paw. It wasn't a big deal so I didn't worry about it... but then it got really, really badly infected. ~_~;; So he had a course of antibiotics and now everything's kosher again.

Went to Anime North the end of May. Only for a few hours on Saturday, but it was still fun. I was really happy to be able to go and not have to bring my cane with me. By the time Mel, Bonnie and I headed to the restaurant for dinner my knee was completely locked up though. XD;; Sitting while we ate dealt with it, though, so everything was fine. (I'm bringing my cane with me to Otakon/Matsuricon anyway just in case.)

While I was there I got a fuckton of buttons to make into more fridge magnets (as usual), a couple of bookmarks, a print for Kiin-bb, a Heartless plushie and a hilarious Yoda plush for Dad since it was his birthday that weekend. ♥ I also got some onigiri, since the restaurant we ate dinner at was selling them~ tuna onigiri yum~!

Unfortunately now Mel is off to Japan, so that was the last I'll see her for a while. I'm hoping to be able to visit her there for a little while, but I won't know for sure if I can afford it until after Otakon/Matsuricon. *fingers crossed*

Anyway, back to the cane thing for a second... sort of. The reason I can go without my cane most of the time now is because of how much weight I've lost so far. SIXTY POUNDS ASDGH;KL. I'm only about halfway there at this point, but I'm SO happy with things so far. I can do all these things I couldn't before, plus the other day I actually bought a pair of SIZE 16 JEANS. I know that doesn't sound all that great, but I haven't been in size 16 in YEARS. >>; So~ ♥

Right.

So a couple days ago the rest of my tax rebate came in. I got about $7,000, which sounds like a lot but I had to pay Mom back $1,500 right off the bat, plus $300 to Grandma, $200 to Dad and $100 to my brother. Plus I have to set aside enough for Otakon/etc. and for getting Juna neutered in September. Still, I had about $4,000 left, so I've picked up a rug for the living room and on Wednesday I'm getting a cabinet/pantry for the kitchen so that I can organize my jams/jellies/etc.

I also got a few cheap movies and books, and some jewelry display pieces for using at the cons.

And today I finally got to get my snake! I've been researching them for years and wanted one forever and now I finally have one! His name is Ayame (after the Furuba character lol) and he's a Ball Python. I'll have lots of pics to share in a couple days, but for now I'm just letting him chill and settle into his new terrarium. I can't wait to show him off, though, Aya's so pretty! :3

I was originally going to wait until after I got Juna neutered to get Aya, but when I went in today to price terrarium kits they didn't have the small one so they offered me the large one for the same price as the small. It's $150 savings on the large kit, plus it means I don't have to upgrade when Aya gets bigger (the small terrarium only fits smaller snakes) so he can live in it his whole life. The deal was too good to pass up, especially since I was going to spend the money anyway. So I ended up with my first scale-baby a couple months early. xD;;

Apparently ball pythons live 20-30 years in captivity. .__.; /random

This morning I also went down to the Farmer's Market and ended up buying strawberries and cherries. So this afternoon I used half the strawberries and most of the cherries to make some Strawberry-Cherry Jam. It's sooooo yummy. Too bad cherries are so expensive, so I can't use them in more recipes...

Anyhoo, a lot of the rest of the money is just going to be squirreled away in case of emergencies or whatever.

Note for Steph and Lome: I haven't mailed your packages yet but I should be able to on Tuesday/Wednesday this week. Finally. XD ♥

Finally, a video I found the other day. I'm sharing it because it was so sad and the song completely broke my heart. It's one of the worst stories of animal cruelty that I've ever heard, and it especially touched me because the puppy was a Pom, and I know firsthand how sweet and loving they are. But please don't click if you don't want to cry.



RIP Tobey.

EDIT: Oh. Does anyone want a DVD? I accidentally ended up with two copies of The Uninvited and obviously don't need them both lol. It's Region 1 format. Free to a good home! ♥
senashenta: (A Little Strange Because I Am)
Yeah I fail at like... everything online lately. I've been having a lot of trouble irl with various things, which I may or may not get into in this entry. Anyway, list format today for the sake of my sanity because I have a fuckton of stuff to talk about since it's been so long since I last wrote anything. xD;

1) ANIME NORTH. Okay, basically I spent the whole weekend at my table trying to sell jewelry and pony commissions (since I wasn't allowed to actually sell the ponies there). I sold a bit, and got two commissions (Van from Escaflowne and Reno from FFVII. XD), but the way Artist Alley and Crafter's Corner was organized this year was RETARDED, and the Corner was way the hell out of the way so we got practically no traffic. SO ANNOYING. Anyway, all that work and spending that much time at the table, and I basically broke even for the cost of the con registration, the table, and the parts that went into the jewelry. So much for making money for Otakon. -__-;

Anyway, that aside, I got to see Mel and Zexy again. :3 I went to a D-Gray photoshoot with Mel on Friday, and to the Moonlight Ball with her and Bonnie on Saturday night for a while. I didn't get to see Zexy as much, but she stopped by my table twice to say hi and give her her present~

On Friday I wore my Org13 Demyx outfit. It was INSANELY HOT. DAMN PLEATHER. And I forgot my gloves at home, so I just wore my shark/dolphin rings instead. *shrug* I also didn't have my boots because the morons I ordered them from backed out at the last minute. This was remedied Saturday morning, though, when I found awesome bootcovers in the Dealer's Room. Then Saturday during the day I wore my casual!Demyx outfit. Did I mention I LOVE LOVE LOVE my new wig? It's so awesome there are no words to describe it. And it fits perfectly, and stays in place all day, it doesn't even budge. >w<~ Anyhow! Then Saturday night for the Moonlight Ball I wore my Haine cosplay. Sunday was Org13 Demyx again for a while, then last-minute casual!Lavi that pretty much all came from my closet lol.

I didn't buy a whole ton of stuff like I do most years because I was trying to save monies for Otakon, but I did get four boxes of pocky, a Riku plushie (I always get myself a plushie at AN), and about 30 buttons. XD; A bunch of KH ones, some FFVII ones and some Ouran ones. Also, one booth had kitty buttons and the proceeds from them went to a cat rescue, so I got myself one of those. Then I got three more the next day to send to people. XD; Oh, and I got some henna done on my arm. It's faded out now, but I took pics of it~

Various photos from AN. Haine cosplay photos when I get around to getting some from Mel or raiding my Mom's camera. >>; )

2) ON THE WAY HOME FROM ANIME NORTH. Two things happened; first, I was looking out the window of the van and actually saw a songbird attack a hawk in midflight. It was spectacular and I couldn't believe it. I've seen that kind of thing on Animal Planet, but I never thought I'd see it IRL. WOW.

Second... I broke a knuckle in my right hand. >__>;; I caught it in a booth when we stopped for food. It was all bruised for a while and hurt like a bitch, but I didn't bother going to the hospital. *shrug* Which was fine until a couple days ago when I smashed it off a doorknob and re-cracked it. xD; *FAIL OMFG*

3) OTAKON. Well... I didn't make any money toward Otakon at AN like I'd wanted, but I still managed to finagle out a way to pay for it. GO ME. Basically, I'm not paying my parents rent for next month, and then paying double in August. I'm also borrowing $300 from my Grandma, which I'm paying back in September. Ugh more debt but fuck it, I'M GOING. XD; So I've already paid for my registration and my plane tickets (NO 26 HOUR BUS RIDE FOR ME THIS YEAR), which completely maxed out my credit card two weeks ago, but you know... whatever. >>; It'll get paid off at the end of the month.

Maddie love, let me know when you have a tentative total for the stuff we're doing in Dayton and gas monies and everything. ♥

Cosplay for Otakon! Org13 Demyx and Haine for sure. Also, I think I'm going to do Riku cosplay from BOYS, just for kicks and to see how many people get it. I could trim up my Suigintou wig a bit and it'd work for Riku totally fine. I NEED SOME HEMP BRACELETS AND STUFF. I SHOULD GET SOME HEMP AND JUST MAKE THEM MYSELF IT WOULD BE CHEAPER. I also need some gray arm warmers to go as fake long sleeves under the t-shirt so that I don't have to wear layers lol. Also, yakuza!Kadaj, complete with pinstripe shirt and fedora. >D

I'm also bringing about six other wigs in case myself or anyone wants to do impromptu cosplay of anything. My Kyo wig for sure, and my blonde pigtail one, and probably my blue one and maybe my red one, though I got that one for Axel cosplay (next year maybe), and I don't want it to get messed up between now and when I have a chance to style it... hmm. Must think on this more.

4) B-GRADE MOVIES. After AN, we stopped at Dad and Lois' place to say hi and see teh doggies, and I borrowed 24 b-grade movies from him. XD TWENTY-FOUR. AWESOME. Some of the best ones were The Burrowers, Alien Raiders and Decoys (the second one is bad though.) I also borrowed Underworld: Rise of the Lycans, which I LOVED. ♥

5) SORA AND RIKU. Last week I had to take my rats to the vet. Riku was diagnosed with pneumonia, and the vet gave me antibiotics for him... but unfortunately, he died the next day. It's sad, but he was in a really bad way, so I'm kind of glad he didn't suffer for long. Sora doesn't seem to know what to do without him, though. Also, I had to treat Sora for mites today. That's no big deal, though.

6) JEWELRY. IF ANYONE IS INTERESTED IN BUYING SOME JEWELRY, LOOK HERE. 90% OF IT IS STILL AVAILABLE.

7) FEET. Last Friday, my feet and ankles swelled up to twice their normal size. As in, I had no discernable ankle, and could barely walk because of it. =_=;; And they stayed that way until TUESDAY NIGHT. WTF? I have no idea why, but it was a pain and a little disturbing on top of that. I had a doctor's appointment yesterday though, and the doctor wants me to go for bloodwork, since it's possible my meds are the cause of the swelling. Yep.

8) DOCTORS IN TORONTO. A while back, I mentioned about going in for gastric bypass surgery. Last month I went to the initial consultation in Toronto, and then earlier this month I went for the appointment with the social worker and dietician. I still have to go to a gastric bypass class, and see an internist before going back to the surgeon again, at which point my surgery will actually be scheduled.

Things are actually coming along rather well. The only big problem right now is that my Grandma is really against it. She doesn't think I should do it. But then she thinks that my weight issues are my fault. It's bad enough that strangers assume I'm lazy and don't eat well, but having my own Grandma think that really hurts. She keeps giving me lectures about exercise and eating right-- I already eat right (even the dietician was impressed), and I exercise as much as I can but with my legs the way they are, it isn't always possible. I have to walk with a cane, Grandma, it's not like I can just break into an easy run. *sigh* I really need to talk to her about it, but... I know I'll just get another lecture about not trying hard enough, and end up crying for two days over it. I dunno...

9) THE YARD. Mom has decided this summer that she's sick of the back and front yard (what little we have of them, this is just a townhouse after all), and wants them to look really nice. So we've all been working on the yard for the last month, putting down sod and seeding and watering and pulling up weeds. Also, in the front yard we lined the sidewalk with quartz stones, with solar lights along the other side. Then next to the door we planted a little cedar tree, with more quarts around it. Yep.

10) ROLEPLAY. I haven't been rping as much lately, with everything IRL. I was supposed to be back from hiatus at TV like a month ago. I really need to get back there before people get sick of it and I get kicked out.

I have, however, been rping some zombie!apocalypse-verse Kingdom Hearts with Michi over email. It's hilarious and fun. Plus RikuRoku, which makes me happeh. :D And I've been rping with my bb Kiin over at [livejournal.com profile] losechesters, which is a comm Kiin set up for us for "Winchestertastical" roleplay. I'm Sam and she's Dean and basically it's just for the sake of crack. It's SO much fun. Which reminds me, I need to think up another post for there... >.>;

Secrets

senashenta: (Kadaj)
1) Rizumikaru Yomi secret at rp!secrets. I miss that place still. ;__; I hear you, anon!

2) Anime North post tomorrow, I promise. With some pics and everything. =D; *has been lazy*

3) EVEN THOUGH I DIDN'T MAKE MUCH AT AN, I AM STILL GOING TO OTAKON. BWAHAHA. I'VE GOT IT ALL WORKED OUT YES OH YES. >w<~
senashenta: (Dreams)
Heading to Toronto tomorrow! ...God I'm already exhausted and AN hasn't even started. Off to crash for a few hours now, getting up at 10 to pack the van and head out. Back home on Sunday, back online Monday or Tuesday (depending on how I'm feeling). Wish me luck selling things! :D
senashenta: (SPAZ)

HOLY SHIT ONLY ONE MORE DAY UNTIL WE LEAVE FOR ANIME NORTH. I STILL HAVE SO MUCH TO DO. ;A; *FLAIL*

I have about 20 ponies to try to sell from the hotel, plus a ton and a half of jewelry. I'm really hoping everything goes alright and I get enough money to pay for Otakon. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE WORK OUT. Since we're paying for a hotel room this year instead of crashing at Dad's place, there's no budget for food, so today I have to make all the sammiches and salads and stuff that we're bringing with us in the cooler. Also onigiri, but just for me since Mom won't eat them. xD; Maybe I'll bring extra to share with other people though.

Then I have to double-check that I've got all my cosplay stuff, pony supplies, and jewelry supplies packed. (Mom and I are stopping for more beads on the way out of town on Thursday.) 

At the hotel on Thursday night I have to finish sewing my leg covers for Haine cosplay (note to self: pack a freaking needle and thread!), and add some length to the elastic of my eyepatch for Lavi because it's a teeny bit too small. Plus I have to style my Haine and Lavi wigs. At least my Demyx one is finished and spiffy because I wasn't the one who styled it XD;;, and the Haine one just needs the bangs fixed and some pulled back in a bow. Lavi is the one I'm not sure about, but I think since I'm doing casual!outfit Lavi I might go with the flatter hairstyle.

Mel and Kaz: If you need to get ahold of me at the con, text me instead of calling, since I have unlimited texting but I'm almost out of minutes on my phone. DX Or drop by Crafter's Corner. I hopefully will have presents for you both, assuming I get them finished in the next 24 hours. >.>;; *fingers crossed*

After the con on Sunday, we're going to stop by and visit Dad and Lois for a couple hours, so I can show them my Demyx or Lavi cosplay (Haine is for Saturday, but I haven't decided on Friday or Sunday for the other two) and play with the puppehs some. I'm considering taking Tetsuya and Nazoko with me just to take pretty pics of them around the kennel property, since it's gorgeous there. Plus it would be an excuse to take pics of Nazoko, since I haven't had the chance to do a proper photo shoot with her yet...

Cosplay Schedule Assuming Everything Works Out:
Friday: Org13!Demyx (KH) or casual!Lavi (D.G-M)
Saturday: Haine (TGAC)
Saturday Night: Suigintou (RM) or Haine (TGAC)
Sunday: Org13!Demyx (KH) or casual!Lavi (D.G-M)
senashenta: (Sailor Iron Mouse)
Yesterday Mom and I went to Toronto for my appointment with the gastroenterologist. Basically, it took an hour and a half to drive there, almost two hours of waiting in the waiting room for the appointment (the doctor was running stupidly late), and then when I finally got in, the phone rang TWICE in the middle of the consult, which he picked up, and then talked about finances for twenty minutes each time while I sat there with nothing to do.

Then he told me I'm fat because I don't eat properly and don't excersize, which I'm used to hearing from doctors by now. It's very frustrating because it's not fucking true, but that he would do the surgery anyway. Then he told me I had to make appointments with three other specialists before he could even do the real consult with me. WHAT? You couldn't have told me that over the phone so I could do that BEFORE driving way the hell down there? FFS. Then after the next consult with him, it's 4-6 months until the surgery. *sigh* What a pain.

Anyway, to make up for that craptacular experience, Mom and I went to the World's Biggest Bookstore while we were there (turns out it's half a block from the Greyhound station and I never even realised *facepalm*), where Mom got me volumes 7-10 of After School Nightmare, 1-2 of Cherry Juice and Absolute Boyfriend (which I subsequently downloaded scanlations of the rest because it was so good, I'm so buying the rest of the set!), the first volume of Tsubasa (Those With Wings) and 6 of Vampire Knight. Also, a book on handwriting analysis, a nightmare encyclopedia, a book about cults, a book about the knights templar, a Sylvia Browne book on psychic children, Deluge by Anne McCaffrey and Elizabeth Ann Scarborough (FINALLY) and Crime Spells, which is a short story collection about magical crimes. >w<~

Right!

There hasn't been any new news on Wally since Sunday. Originally, they had said that if he didn't show any improvement over the weekend, they would pull the plug on Monday. Saturday night, he started trying to breathe on his own again, though, and Sunday he started moving a little and his eyes were open off-and-on (though they're unsure if he was actually seeing or not). He's still got to be on life support, and obviously hasn't been talking, but since they're seeing improvement, now they're waiting longer to see how he does in a more long-term setting. We're all still really hopeful that he'll pull out of it...

And finally, tonight's Grey's Anatomy? = DDDDDDDDDDDD8 NUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU. I literally gasped out loud and sat up with my hands over my mouth when Merideth figured out who John Doe was... ;___; And Izzy...

EDIT: Also, HOLY SHIT STAR TREK WAS AN AWESOME MOVIE. O___O!!

EDIT #2: A couple days ago, the people who were supposed to be custom-making the boots I was going to be using for Org13!Dem and Lavi cosplay emailed me and backed out. WTF. SO ANNOYING, especially so close to Anime North. They refunded the money, and I was panicking about not having the boots, but Mel says she can make me some bootcover-things, so it should be okay. Then I can try to find the actual boots later on. Yay~

EDIT #3: *facepalm* God, lookit the edits today. Anyway, my passport came in and I picked it up yesterday. AWESOME. Now assuming I can afford it, I can get into the US for Otakon. :D
senashenta: (Respect The Suitcase)
I finally broke down and got a new mp3 player. My Zen was lovely, but the controls stopped working about a year ago (it was only a year old at the time), and it had been stuck on shuffle after that. I could turn it on and listen to music, but I couldn't pick tracks, it just played stuff randomly. I finally got sick of it, and bought a new player. I got it really cheap though, so it's all good.

I just needed to have one for traveling, assuming I'm going to Otakon in July. I don't travel well long distances without music. >>;

Oh, and the passport office put through the payment on my credit card yesterday, so I assume I have been approved, which means that I am allowed to go to the US. :D Which is awesome, as if I wasn't allowed I couldn't go to Otakon even if I had the money. >>; WHICH I WILL. *DETERMINED*

...I think there's a possibility I will be cosplaying Lavi at AN after all. Casual!Lavi though, since I already have everything for it except an eyepatch. I'd just have to actually style the wig I bought a while back. Which reminds me, I need to go to Shoppers and get a pair of styling scissors at some point.

Tomorrow I'm going to the salon to get my hair cut, since it's been over a year since I had it done. Gotta have it short again to make wigs for con season easier. ♥
senashenta: (ZOMG! Envy)


I've been making bracelets off and on all day. Some of them are really cute. I love the pink and black one, and the one with the little round beads with funky patterns. I think the one with fake pearls is really pretty, but it's not something I'd wear. They're all for selling at AN, obviously.

Tomorrow Mom and I are going to visit Grandma in the morning, and then after that we're going to Huntsville... and I SHALL BE GOING TO THE FUCKTASTICALLY AWESOME BEAD STORE THERE. HOMG SO EXCITED. >w<~

Ordered pitas for dinner tonight. CHIPOTLE CHICKEN PITA OMG SO YUMMY AND BURN-Y AT THE SAME TIME. \o/ lol.

UGH

GODDAMMIT. I OFFICIALLY CALL BULLSHIT ON YOU, CRAFTER'S CORNER. QUIT BEING SO FREAKING STUPID. >/
senashenta: (I Won't Be Broken Again)
Ugh, the Apo-Divalproex is really kicking my ass since Dr K upped my dosage. But then on top of that I haven't been feeling super great anyway. I'm really depressed still. >.<; Bad enough that Mom's noticed and asked me about it today. Normally no one can tell when I'm like this because I fake being fine. =_=; IDK, I've just been going downhill the last couple of months for no apparent reason.

Anyway, today my box of snacks from j-list came in. I ordered them a couple weeks ago. Wildberry pocky, different flavours of mochi candy, custard hi-chews and lotte lime-yuzu gum for Mom. The mochi candy is gone already. It was so yummy. :3 The grape was the best~! I might order some more in a couple weeks.

Oh, and my brother's PC completely died yesterday, so he spent all yesterday in a major snit. Now he's alright again, but he borrowed my PS2 to play Kingdom Hearts and FFXII, since he can't pass the time playing City of Heroes on the computer. I think he's probably planning to use his tax money to pay to have his PC fixed when it comes in.

Also, thank you Sethi and Kazzie~! I got PSP working again though, so it's all good. XD;; I was doing a poster for Esprit Studios to get printed off for my booth at AN, so with that done I'm good. I just have to actually get the posters printed. (Two so I can keep one in case the one at AN gets ripped up or whatever.)
senashenta: (I Like Him He Says Okie Dokie!)
Neil Gaiman is on The Colbert Report tonight. Haha.

Well, in the three days after I put Loki's first set of soft paws on him he managed to pull them all off. But I put another set on him today and in the 7 + 1/2 hours since he hasn't lost any. I'm hoping he's getting used to them.

I feel like RPing smut. IDK which character or anything, I just feel like it. :P It's possibly Kadaj being whiny about wanting distractions from his angst right now. Anyway, anyone want to indulge me? XD;;

I'm going to read over some of the old ND threads, and try to write some more scenes. I miss ND terribly. We had way too much fun with it. ^_^; I also plan to attempt working on some fics again. I'm determined (once again) to try to work through my writer's block!

Oh, and I'm working around the new rules for Crafter's Corner, in that I can take commissions and stuff at my table and sell my ponies out of the hotel room. XD; Screw you AN people! I'm going to bring some ponies to work on while I'm there too, to pass the time. It was kind of boring last time, just sitting there for hours on end. I'm bringing some things to work on earrings as well.

I pulled out my cosplay stuff to try taking a few pics just for the heck of it yesterday, but then I got sidetracked and never got around to it. I'll probably do some tomorrow...

.....

senashenta: (Allen will beat your oppinion out of you)
Okay, so I got a table to sell things at AN. Great. Yay and all that, right?

Except I just got an email telling me that I CAN'T SELL MY PONIES THERE, BECAUSE IT'S AGAINST THE RULES.

I just emailed a wtf to them and explained that duh, I'd sold them there before with no problems. (Nicer than that, though. I don't want to get kicked out entirely or something.)

But FUCK. If I can't sell ponies, I know I won't make enough to go to Otakon. >|

I'm so pissed off right now I want to cry.
senashenta: (Just Obsessed)
My Haine costume came in today. I'm happy. It all fits really well, with the exception of the shirt collar needing a tiny bit of adjustment, which I can probably get help with from Grandma. ♥ I'm very happy with the outfit and the quality of it. I can't wait to wear it at AN. :3

And I got a fedora today! I found one at Giant Tiger. ) >w<~ I love the purple striped band, but for yakuza!Kadaj I'll have to cover over it with plain black ribbon. *shrug*

I want to go out and take cosplay photos around town, but THERE IS NO ONE ELSE LIVING HERE THAT I KNOW OF WHO COSPLAYS AND/OR WOULD BE WILLING TO PUT UP WITH ME WHILE I FORCED THEM TO TAKE PHOTOS ASDGH STUPID CITY. lol.

Today was also the day that registration for Crafter's Corner at AN opened up, at 8:00pm. So I sent off my email. Here's hoping I get a space this year. If I don't I probably won't be able to go to Otakon, so...

Finally... I guess it was coming, but it's official now; RY is closed. It feels almost like closing the door on an entire chapter of my life, since it lasted so long. Heh. (Trust me, it makes sense at least in my brain.) R.I.P. Rizumikaru Yomi!
senashenta: (Kadaj: Welcome To My Reunion)
Loki's nail caps came in today. I was all excited when I saw the package, and as soon as Mom got home I got her to hold him so I could put them on (it ended up taking both her and Lee to hold Loki down, he flailed a lot and it turns out he's super strong. XD;;) Anyway, he immediately chewed two off, which I replaced about an hour later, and then right after that he pulled another one off. UGH.

I'm hoping he gets used to them. But I was worried they would be a problem, especially considering when he grooms his feet he chews his nails; I've never seen a cat do that other than him, and normally it's not an issue, but obviously it could be with him wearing the nail covers. *sigh*

Anyway, I guess we'll see. For now he's still missing one nail cap (I'll replace it and any he chews off tonight at some point tomorrow), and still wearing the cone collar in an attempt to help him get used to them by making it a little harder for him to destroy them. If these caps don't work, I'll have to go back to the plan where I have his back claws removed. >.<;;

I cooked dinner tonight, coca-cola chicken, rice and beans. Yummy.

And I dug through my cosplay stuff to organize it some (so I'm not doing it at the very last minute for AN), and I can't find my chain for casual!Demyx. :| I have no idea where it's gotten to. I might have to make another one. Not that it was hard to make lawl. I haven't lost anything else though, thankfully.

I want a fedora for Kadaj for pics with Pronnie in the summer at Otakon, but idk where to get one. xD; And I need to make sure it doesn't clash with the shirt I have for yakuza!Kadaj too. I wish I could have Souba to take with me for those pics too, since he uses that as opposed to firearms. But even if I could make one, I so don't want to try taking it on the plane to Baltimore. >>;; I'm also bringing green ribbons for pics with Pronnie's Haruhi cosplay because LOL.

You can tell con season is coming up, half my journal nowadays is about cosplay. :D;

I need a studded belt. /random. I mean. >>; I have one, but the buckle is all flowers and stuff, so it doesn't go with the male cosplays I want to do. XD;; My red one is awesome too, but it has hearts in it... which I guess would work for some KH stuff, actually, now that I think about it. ._.;

Anyhoo~

Misc Things

Mar. 4th, 2009 05:21 pm
senashenta: (Boredom Kills)
I slept through most of yesterday. I've been really sick for two months now, and it's just really taken a lot out of me. I'm getting more and more exhausted every day. But I guess I shouldn't complain too much. There are other people going through worse right now and some of them have to put up with the stupid US health care system on top of everything.

Anyway, I woke up early this morning and watched a couple of movies; Walled In and House. They were alright. I actually enjoyed the first one quite a bit. The second one was confusing. I think it might have made more sense if I had read the book, it seemed like they might have left some things out or something. Or I just blinked at the wrong time. *shrug*

Today I've also written my letter to Jose. I have some things to send to him along with the letter, so I need to go out and get a 6"x9" padded envelope (that's the biggest you're allowed to send through World Vision). I'm sending some pencil crayons and a sketch pad, as well as some candies, and some photos of the snow here.

All of my ear piercings are trying to get infected again. They're all sore and a little puffy. So I had to take most of my earrings out to let them settle down. I'll put them back in again in a week or so. *shrug*

I pulled out my cosplay stuff last night to dig through it; I have eleven wigs. XD; Two of them are previous Demyx wigs though, which I will probably be getting rid of at some point. I still need to fix the bangs on my Haine wig before AN, but I still have three months so I'm not in a hurry. I've got everything I need for AN purchased now, with the exception of some hair cement, black spray paint, and my Org13 coat. I may also need new shoes for my Haine cosplay, but I won't know until the outfit gets here so I can see what it looks like with the ones I already have.

I went through the jewelry, keychains and phone straps that I've done so far and priced them, then added up the totals, and I assuming I was to sell every piece, I have $709 worth finished. XD; And of all of that, there are only eight pieces that are more than $5.

I guess now I should probably get back to working on ponies. >.>;

When I go to Otakon this summer, there's a chance I'll be going back to Dayton again (for more than two days this time!) It's going to depend on how much I can sell at AN, since it'll be extra for the ticket from Baltimore to there, obviously. I really want to go, but I have to wait and see until I know for sure if I can or not. *fingers crossed*

Photos of the hoop earrings I've done for selling at AN so far. Later I'll take pics of the dangle-earrings I've done as well.

Various HOOPS. )

There are about 60 pairs, I believe. Plus about 30 of the dangly ones. (Plus all the phone straps and keychains.) I really should actually count them. >>;
senashenta: (Boredom Kills)
I took some pics of the jewelry and stuff I've made the last few days, to post tomorrow or the next day. Now I have to get back to ponies, I need to have more of them done for selling at AN. The money from what will go toward Otakon.

I sent in my measurements for my Haine costume today, so now I just have to wait for it to be finished and get to me. I also have my Haine wig prepped for styling (mostly just the bangs, omg I know how you feel Lome >>;), which will probably happen tomorrow. I also need to find/make a red bow for it. If I'd been thinking I could have easily found one at Christmas time. *facepalm*

Next month I'm ordering my Org13 coat. I still need boots for that too, and a new wig for Demyx. Hmm. Then between AN and Otakon I have to order my Rima costume, but I already have the wig for that one. And I need to scrounge up bits and pieces for security!Kyo. I already know what I'm going to wear for yakuza!Kadaj though. I have an epic pinstripe shirt and a green tie for it. X3 Pronnie and I are going to pounce a random Axel cosplayer with a fedora for a couple pics LMAO.

I was supposed to be doing Lavi for AN as well, but I think I might have to scrap that idea. I don't know if I can afford it. I might have to just wait until next year for that cosplay.

For the first time in two years I don't think my Haruhi cosplay will be used! .__.; I might bring it to AN with me just in case, but idk. My Suigintou cosplay will probably be going to Otakon with me, depending on Seph and Reppy.
senashenta: (We Be DORKY Today)
I HAS A [BADGE-A-MINIT] BUTTON PRESS. >D

Um, basically, that means I can make my own buttons to sell at AN/Otakon. Maddie and anyone else who'll have a table at Otakon with me next year, if you have designs you want me to press for you, we can talk about it. ♥

Mmm.

senashenta: (Tet-chan :: DRAMA~! lol)
I didn't sleep much last night again... but I guess getting up early today isn't so bad, since I have a ton of stuff to do today anyway. *shrug* It's 6am and I'm already doing chores, anything I can do that won't wake Sarah up lol. Not that I should care, she bangs around downstairs and wakes me up all the time. :P

Most of the reason I didn't sleep last night was because of the temperature in here. Outside it's actually nice, but because this is the attic floor it gets SO DAMN HOT even when the weather isn't so bad. And my air conditioner is 99.99% dead. -___-;; I'm leaving it off for today in the hopes that that might revive it some, but I doubt it. It's like five years old and has a lot of wear and tear on it, so it dying isn't a surprise.

Anyway. I just realised today, maybe I should pack a bathingsuit for in August? I don't know. .__.; In which case I should probably... you know... buy one. >>;

Speaking of cons, aparently my brother is coming to AN with me next May. He wants help with a costume, but won't tell me who he's going as, and I'm kind of like "how am I supposed to help if I don't even know which character you want to do?" He wants it to be a surprise or something. XD;

...I'm starting to worry about Pan. She started chewing the cage apart a couple months ago, and I just figured she was being a rabbit, since all the supports in the cage are wood. I figured out how to get her to stop (Ivory soap rubbed on all the wood, she only tried it once and made adoraly PPPTOEY! faces ♥), but then I was cuddling with her the other day and realised... she's losing weight.

Now I'm wondering if she was chewing because she was hungry or something? So I've been watching them when I feed them, and it seems like Pauper and Phoenix kind of push her out of the way so Pan doesn't get as much food as they do. (Also, I have been keeping an eye on her and she does eat and drink fine so it's not GI stasis or anything.) Hmm. I'd really like to separate her from them for a little while and see if she picks the weight back up then, but the only way I can do that is if I put Phantom into the big cage with Pauper and Phoenix, and then put Pan in hers. And that could either settle the dominance issue for good, or be a FUCKING BUNNY BLOODBATH.

Maybe I can find another pack of NIC squares and build a little makeshift cage for her for a little while or something...
senashenta: (Twins: My Anti-Drug)
So! Anime North this year! ...the programming kind of sucked. There weren't really any panels I was interested in, and the same for Mom. But it was still totally worth going since Mel and Zexy were there. :3

Friday I was in my Host Club cosplay, and we pretty much spent the whole day in line to register and then looking through the dealer's room. Mel dragged me around and we squeed at stuff. XD; She also tried to get me to buy porn-- and very nearly succeeded lawl. ^.^

Sena: You know my Mom's right here. >__>;;
Mom: Whatever. If you want to buy porn, buy porn. *shrug*
Sena: XD;

Then she wandered off, and came back a few minutes later and was like "there's a book over there called The Manga Sutra, but it's shrinkwrapped so I can't look at it. .__.;" XDD;; My Mom makes me laugh sometimes. ♥

Anyway, then we all met up with some of Mel's friends and went to Kelsey's for dinner, after which Mom and I left to head back to Dad's and crash because seriously, I hadn't slept in two days. =.=; And then we ended up staying up until like 1am chatting with Dad and Lois and playing with the dogs. >>;;

Then Saturday, we were late getting up, and then I took forever getting my costume on, since it was my Suigintou day, and I had to mess around with make-up and a wig, and fake nails WHICH I HATED SO MUCH OMG. >.<;

We hung around with Mel after we got there, and then I called Zexy and she came across to sit with us at the café at the TCC for a while. :3 Mom was in awe of her Zexion wig, and so was I. It was soooo good! >3<

Then that night I was supposed to go to the Moonlight Ball with Mel, but I had to go back to Dad's to pick some stuff up, and then Mom wasn't feeling well and didn't want to drive back into TO. Then it turned out Zexy went to the Ball too. D:

Sunday was my AU!Demyx day, but my Demy wig died a terrible death. ;___; So I wore the rest of the costume but not the wig, which was pretty pointless really. xD; I was supposed to meet up with Mel when we got to the TCC, but we waited/searched for about an hour, and then I had to head over to the DoubleTree to the KH photoshoot to find Zexy again... and when we got there I couldn't find the photoshoot either. ><;; BAH.

So I didn't end up managing to hook up with either of them on Sunday, which was kind of disappointing. :P And I brought Tet-chan with me on Sunday too, to show him off. TT__TT He was disappointed that he didn't get to meet them, but at the same time happy to have fresh air and attention from other people. He had his photo taken a couple of times! ♥ Plus we went back into the dealer's room and I found a new shirt for him, too. :)

All in all, it was a good weekend even though the programming wasn't super. ^_^ I'm looking forward to next year and bothering Mel and Zexy again. X3 *squishes them*

And I did a ton of shopping that I shouldn't have. >__>; I got a new plushroom to go with the fox I got last year (a panda :3), a necklace and four Hitachiin twins buttons and a twins postcard at Artist Alley. In the dealer's room I got a giant blue Gloomy Bear (I named him Bluebell to go with my other Gloomies, Marigold and Sakura, because I name them after flowers lawl; at the same booth Mel got a giant plush banana~~ XD;), a keychain, a bunch of pocky, and 19 volumes of manga. X3

-Alien Nine #1-3
-Alien Nine Emulators
-Rhysmyth #2 ([livejournal.com profile] etcetera_cat got me the first one for Christmas :3)
-Vampire Knight #1-2
-Kingdom Hearts Chain of Memories #1-2
-Kingdom Hearts II #1 (I got #2 a couple weeks ago)
-Loveless #3-5
-Candidate for Goddess #3-5
-Megatokyo #3
-Fruits Basket #17
-La Corda d'Oro #2 ([livejournal.com profile] onewhomust gave me the first one when we traded a bunch of manga a while back ♥)

...and I realised after I got home that I forgot to pick up the latest volume of Tsubasa. Bah. Plus the shirt I got for Tet-chan, and Mom bought about $50 worth of candies at one of the booths because she really really liked them. lol. Then on the way home we stopped at Chapters in Barrie and I got an encyclopedia on gemstones, and the latest Dean Koontz paperback. <3

Anyway, I took Tet-chan with me to show him to Dad and Lois, mostly. I took all of his extra clothing and stuff as well, I'd planned to take some pics of him outside around their property because they have gorgeous grounds, but I didn't have the time. Too bad. Dad like choked when he found out how much he cost. XD;;

It's always nice to have a chance to talk to them some, and play with the dogs. Lois was nice enough to bring Star in from the kennel so I could visit with her some. She's my special doggy and I love her to bits. I fully intended to bring her home with me when they were finished using her for breeding (she was the last in her line so they needed her), but right now I'm not in a situation to. I'm really kind of upset about that...

Other than Star, they have four puppies right now; the black one is very pretty but starts easily. If you surprise him he yelps too. The multicolour (he'll end up being red when his adult coat comes in) is really pretty and friendly, but standoffish, he likes to play but not snuggle. Then the blonde boy is adorable, and when you pick him up be vegges completely in seconds. He's such a cuddler! And finally~ Bella. ♥♥♥ Bella is black and tiny; super tiny. Her brother is on the floor and 4x her size, but she's too little to go out with the adult dogs yet. >3< She loves to cuddle, and is rediculously cute and pretty, and KNOWS it too. They could have sold her in a snap... if she didn't have a heart murmur.

Now, a lot of pups are born with a faint heart murmur, it's not really rare. But in most cases they grow out of it. Bella's is so bad that you can feel it when you're holding her, and if you hold her up to your ear, her heart doesn't go "thump thump" it goes "swish swish". ;___; She doesn't know there's anything wrong with her, but it's not going to go away, and Lois can't sell a dog that might just drop dead at any second. She wants to find a home for her, but it has to be someone who understands that she may have problems and be costly later on if the heart problem gets worse or acts up.

For now Bella is happy to be where she is and steal cuddles from anyone who looks her way. Mom was so close to taking her home. lol.

And then before we left I raided Dad's DVD collection and ended up with a bunch of b-grade DVDs; The Man-Thing, The Host, Parasite, Ice Spiders and Carnivore. X33

Now a couple of photos. Mom had the camera most of the weekend, but she took a couple of decent ones. I'll go through the rest and see if there are any others worth posting later.

Four whole AN pics. >>; )

Oh... and on Friday morning Dad got a call that Grandpa (his father, obviously) died. I'm just mentioning it so I have a record of the date. Before anyone says anything about being sorry for me, don't bother; I hadn't seen him in about 18 years, and aside from that I have nothing else to say because you shouldn't speak ill of the dead.

And for things completely un-anime-north-related, RP UPDATE!

Kyo is currently working 14-18 hour days after the bombing at the school last week. He's pretty exhausted. *pets him* Last night Yukari randomly brought him dinner, and he was like "...wut?" until he realised she was Vincent's girlfriend, lol.

Demyx is somewhat trying to convince Zexion they need to take a vacation. At some point soon Marly is having a party and he plans to drag Zexy along to that too. <3

Kadaj. GOD THAT KID IS TROUBLE. First off, Seph found out about him going out with Marluxia and FREAKED OUT (which was to be expected), which of course made Kadaj freak out as well. Now they've somewhat worked it out. Mostly. Then he fucked up royally and slept with Asch, and completely alienated Luke for a few days. D: He was very upset, but he and Luke talked a bit and now everything's okay. As for his relationship with Marly, it's all working out well except that they're likely to have to take some time off until after the trial against Hojo is over. Kadaj is not really impressed with that idea, but... it has to be done. ;__; [Edit: Also, Axel has started calling him Ka-hime because of how much he blushes when asked about Marly lol. I find it amusing. Kadaj was annoyed for about ten minutes and then just gave up because once Axel decides on a nickname you're pretty much stuck with it. He learned that back when they first met. XD;]

Hikaru and Mahiru... .__.; I need to get them doing something. Seriously. Though I think Riku is trying to get the band practicing some, which will take care of Mahiru. *pokes Hikaru and ponders* Hmm.
