Well, Thanksgiving break kinda just came and went. I'd intended on being more active over the break, but frankly I was exhausted. I was working a good portion of the time and when I was working I was zoning out and being tired and generally not doing anything. I didn't even get up Christmas decorations like I'd wanted to. ;~; In any case, there are only two official weeks left in the semester before my two finals on the 17th and 19th. So close guys. D8 So close! I'm still sitting at a B in Anatomy and Physiology. Chemistry should turn out to be either an A or a B. At this point I don't care. I just want to be finished.
In other news, cosplay parts have been ordered! 8D Not all of them, but part of them. ~Ryuu-Kizu
and I have added gijinkas (humanoid versions) of the legendary Pokemon Ho-oh and Lugia to our list of 'to-do' cosplays. We have idears. >w< They're going to be fairly Japanese-based in the clothing department. Ho-oh will be quite a bit more ornate than Lugia and rather shnazzy if I do say so myself~ We've got ideas for Ho-oh's wig and the makeuping process is under way. For Lugia, the wig is also under way, just not quite as far along as Ho-oh's it, mainly because the short white wigs I have aren't quite awesome enough for pre-official wig practice, like the two long red wigs I have were for Ho-oh. Makeup hasn't been fussed with yet either, mainly 'cause I've been tired and lazy.
Beyond those two, we do have a multitude of other gijinkas we'd like to do. At the top of the list are: Gardevoir/Lucario and Greninja/Delphox. 8D There is a nice list of other Pokemon (mostly legendary, but not all) we'd love to do gijinka of: Misdreavus (or Mismagus)/Absol, Palkia/Dialga (once we get better at and good concepts for armor making, we'll probably attempt these two), and potentially Latias/Latios. I know there are more, but those are what I can think of off the top of my head. x3 So excited~ But for now, Ho-oh and Lugia are the easiest to work with and do in a more timely fashion.
For Wasabi, a couple other cosplays are potentials - Katsura and Gintoki (Joui wars, samurai versions) are very likely, Sinbad and Jafar (Magi) are potentials depending upon our possible Masrur, and maaaaaaybe another cosplay or two. Maybe. Don't know quite what those would be yet. I do know we have at least three other cosplays we'd like to have done by NDK in September. For the time being, here's what the list of new cosplays is looking like: Ho-oh/Lugia, Katsura/Gintoki, and Sinbad/Jafar. As for the complete list of what would be going to Wasabi, well Riku/Sora and Deidara/Sasori are 100% guaranteed. We'll likely also be bringing Envy/Greeling as well as the new cosplays we get finished. 8D Anything beyond that remains to be seen.
So yes! Not completely dead, just halfway there. Money is being accumulated for cosplays and cons and Christmas presents and ninjutsu and more important things that are completely unrelated to any of the above. >w< In any case, happy late Thanksgiving and Merry early Christmas! 8D Also, happy post-post birthday to ~Ryuu-Kizu
. >8D Still planning on doing the feature journal entry, I just need a little more time before I can get to that~ Well, that's all for now. =3
