Have you guys seen the rehaul going on over there? I mean it's kinda late for them to finally fix the site up, but I'm impressed that Admin has kept at it once he finally got started.


Do you have a cosplay.com account? I think I'll start using it again, though I've also been using cosplay amino more. Here are my accounts:



What a time to be alive - HOUSHIN ENGI OMFG


Years and years ago I sold a custom Fuuzen plush to someone and now here we are, 2018, a reboot (that sucks but hey, it got made), AND NEW MERCHANDISE. I've already hurt myself buying the figures, and my nendoroid arrived two days ago, too and .afljkgh;asfjgh

I just...

The One Piece figures release the same month, how do I decide on this? This is not something that comes along every day. But if I wait, I could get the ones I really want, which really is just Taikoubou and Shinkouhyou.

I am really happy that these exist now, though...

...as of finishing this post my roommate just convinced me to at least get Luffy and Zoro. I guess I am not spending anything else that month at Aseliacon, lol. OTL

Anime Dallas 2018!

So I finally am writing this report. I've been exhausted the past week, and I'm sorry to the new friends I added. This happens to me sometimes and I just hit burnout. I should be back, though.

Two weekends ago we went to Anime Dallas, a first year convention, to check it out! I had low expectations. Admission was just $20, though, so what could it hurt? Spoilers... I had a great time. It had big problems leading up to it, especially as a panelist, but maybe they will learn from it, and I have some personal respect for the staff and volunteers for how they treated the attendees in person at least.

But you're here for the pictures, right?

I took a lotCollapse )

Holy crap that was a lot. I haven't done a con report in a while, this is why it takes me some time to get together.
Taking this from [personal profile] kalloway, there's a nice post here on navigating DW for any new users. Probably stuff I don't even know how to do and should learn!

Actually just check her posts in general, because she's awesome and sharing some really helpful stuff!

My work has been killing me and I have not had time to check all my messages or read my friend's list as much as I'd like in my down time. I will be getting to that as soon as I can! :) I'm glad to have friended all of you though, and those that have friended me and I haven't added back yet! I'm so excited but a bit overwhelmed because it's more interaction than I normally have had on my plate lately!

Last night my roommate and I went to dinner and then watched more One Piece. We got to Boa Hancock and I'll probably make a whole writeup about those episodes in and of themselves because yet another character I didn't think I'd like, and here we go again, I had to eat my words and do a 180 on my feelings about them!

I will be going out of town this weekend to visit friends for Christmas and probably will be awol for a few days save for a comment here and there. But before I go I'll try to catch up on all my conversations tonight!

I'll leave you with the last thing I put on DA because I really should share my stuff more often and try (keyword TRY) to draw more often too. I have fallen out of art despite numerous attempts to draw more and I just lose my motivation. Maybe I'll take my sketchbook with me on the road trip!

One Piece episode 400 - 408

So disclaimer here, I'm pretty tipsy. I'll edit any errors later.

So since the summer I've been marathonning One Piece and have managed to make it up to the late 300ish episodes this past week. [personal profile] insidious and I have been watching it together. It's gotten better and better, and probably taken over my life. I've even put other cosplay plans on hold because I love the characters in it so much I've got too many new cosplans and not enough time or money to do them. That's a tangent in itself for another time and if I go into it now, I'll never get to my point.

Anyway. Spoilers ahead under the cut, and don't say I didn't warn you. This shit gets REAL and is probably the most intense thing I've seen yet in the show. Me from 3 months ago would hate me from now for spoiling this.

spoilers under the cut!!!Collapse )

If you read this entire rant, you're a bro. Thanks. Sorry if you just added me, this is not a normal occurrence, but it's been a long week and the episodes were particularly emotional for me. I am just so appreciative of this series, holy shit.

Hello Tumblr People! :D

Hi! If you're migrating over to Dreamwidth, welcome! I'm trying to use this site more because I left Facebook, myself. I had a Tumblr but never used it because it was so hard to have conversations there. I love to chat about fandom and geek out together! Please feel free to add me if we have any common interests!

You can find my interests on my profile, but lately I can tell you I've been REALLY big into One Piece, so there's going to be a lot of that here! Soon I'll be posting my con report from Anime Dallas! I love cosplay and crafting and sewing and art! You can see what I posted already if you don't want to wait, on my instagram because I'm spamming there first, lolol. I'm [instagram.com profile] mudousetsuna!

I also like lolita and J-fashion, though I'm drastically rehauling my wardrobe because my first attempt didn't go in a way I was happy with and I fell out of it for a while. I'm going to try gothic lolita and ouji, I think.

Here's my favorite fandoms as of late:

Tales of Berseria
Tales of Vesperia
Tales of Hearts
Trails in the Sky
Trails of Cold Steel
One Punch Man
Boku no Hero Academia
Black Clover
Hunter x Hunter
Attack on Titan
Persona 5
Persona 4
Persona 3 (Just started playing it!)

I've been using DW/LJ since the early 2000's so if you have questions about how to use it, let me know!
I've been dead tired, and sick. Thanksgiving was a lot of fun but we only went to my grandma's house on my mom's side because Dad's side of the family held it too far away for us to make it after having lunch at Mimi's.

When I finally stopped sleeping every day (lost my entire weekend to it, ugh), I began con-crunching in the way I generally always have. Stay up all or nearly all of the night. It's become a lot harder as I've gotten older, but after failing to the last 2 days, I finally pulled a near all-nighter last night. And I'm mostly pleased with my progress.

While I don't watch the dub of One Piece (there is NO WAY I can hear anyone other than the Japanese cast - they are incredible!!), nearly the entire guest list at Anime Dallas is a voice actor from the OP dub, and the guy running it is apparently Crocodile's voice? Well that coincides nicely with one of the Nami outfits I wanted to do, and thaknfully I was able to find the fabric in time!!

Here are the two I was considering, and if time allows tonight, I'll have them both done:

I started with the Pre-Alabasta outfit and the circles on the skirt are so tedious! AUGH! I only got 2 of them done the night before last.

And then last night when I pulled an all-nighter, I did the other two, plus the tank top with the applique.

It still needs lace, which I'll do last because I need to make her brown skirt for the post-Alabasta outfit tonight and I will have to bust my ass to do it. Thank god her other top is just a plain off-white shirt.

I only received my supplies for my log pose the other day, and may have to forego it. We'll see. :( I'm so sad about that. But the shoes I finished today finally too, after procrastinating on finishing painting them on and off for the past few months:

And of course, earlier last night while we watched some episodes (We're currently on 370s or later, I don't even know... the last preview was before they get their boat prepped to go underwater... fuck. Shit's going to hit the fan and I don't know how bad it'll get during this, just how bad it'll be down the line.)

Anyway while we watched those episodes, I repaired my roommate's purchased Law sword.

She pretty much knows all about that character but I've tried to remain as unspoiled as I can. I know some vague stuff, it's unavoidable, but hopefully we can get some fun pics together despite my ignorance to a lot of things. Talking about RP (where he will be part of our plot) has made me ship him with Nami either way. Anyway I really had fun wrapping the sword. I love how katana are crafted. I love swords. *_*

I have to pack everything, find my slingshot (the rest of Usopp is mostly together), hope my replacement nose shows up or else I'll be doing bandaged version of him on Saturday. And after all I've got ready already is packed, finish Nami version 2. Whooboy, I haven't had a con crunch this severe in a few years!

But it'll hopefully be fun, even if the con looks like it isn't all that well organized!
