Eep! I can’t wait to start patterning out my next cosplay! I have majority of my materials needed to begin! Still tweaking a few things and need to go out and purchase a few small items. Hehe so excited!
With the new year coming around…I will have a huge RESPONSIBILITY…Full-time work and school. man….I hope everything works out.
Dun Dun Dunnnnn!
I landed a job ^-^. Apprentice Roaster here I come!. hahahah. Omg I’m going to love this job more than wanting to be a barista. ^-^
First day is tomorrow at 9am! omg. hahah must go to sleep very very soon.
YAY! I am motivated more than ever to go to college. yeah…of all majors….ACCOUNTING! it is something new for me than the typical asian and medical field. I can’t wait to come back full force in winter quarter :)
So, it’s been a few weeks since Anime Expo passed and at least a month and a half since I’ve been on break from College.
It seems so chill right now but I want to do more with cosplay. My first time going all out for my Ahri cosplay was an eye opener. Learned how to pattern and sew. It was definitely a big challenge since I was working almost 30 hrs a week and a full time student prior to AX. When it came down to it, I only had 2 to 3 weeks to get my whole outfit together and learn how to pattern and sew it all together. I was extremely on edge and was surprised that I didn’t catch a flu prior to AX.
I’m still a newbie with all this sewing and pattern making stuff. I want to improve on my skill and make better costumes. My Ahri Cosplay was unfortunately not finished for AX, but I was okay with that. I wasn’t able to put all the drawing details on the outfit because I was and still am afraid to paint the drawings on. I don’t want to mess up. I hope I can finish it sometime before PMX or ALA or some other con.
I had a blast cosplaying as Ahri! I was sooooo filled with joy that I was able to make other people happy! It was nice meeting people as I walked the halls. Unfortunately, out of all the people I met at this con I encountered one person that I gave my email to (which now I wish I didn’t, i know i know it wasn’t a bright idea.) is beginning to push my buttons. I openly stated I do not feel comfortable meeting people outside other than at a con (unless I felt like we kicked it off at the con and was open to hanging out, from both parties) and yet this particular person INSISTS we meet in person. Does this sort of thing happen a lot to other female cosplayers? I don’t want to be rude or anything to this person, so I am trying to be as nice as possible when I refuse to meet them in person. I have stated that I have a boyfriend and when I was at the con I was always next to my boyfriend who cosplayed as Lee Sin Muay Thai skin. I’m just so frustrated and feel like this person is not getting my drift. I mean like if a girl says she is uncomfortable that should be a red flag to not pursue anything. This person asked me again after maybe waiting….2 weeks? Im just thinking “REALLY!?! DUDE! I just flipping told you I’m not comfortable and you push that question again! I barely know you!” Seems like this person is more interested in beyond hanging out because I told them lets just chat via email and they responded “…sure…” WTF MAN!? I have been telling my best friend and boyfriend about the situation and my boyfriend is telling me to not respond and to stop giving the person more attention. I’m beginning to consider doing this because this is getting out of my comfort zone and this is not how I want to make friends from a con. I feel like a terrible person :( Is this terrible? Am I mean for not wanting to meet some person in person because I’m not comfortable? Ughhhh
on a good note….I am looking into more cosplans! I am excited and so psyched that my boyfriend is very excited to cosplay with me! haha I got him hooked. :p
