because your ghost still resides here

I can try and tag this under prop-making and turn this into an “art” post…?

Sorry, no nice vacation photos to wow you with. I don’t think I’ll ever end up going “on vacation,” like everyone else, it’s just not the way it works. Enjoy your time, savour it…I’ll go someday, for sure. Maybe when my pocket is a little more full. Still jealous though, like I’m missing a “status” thing. :T

Not doing what’s in the picture, haha. ^^ But translating! With the help Google translate, hiragana/katakana charts, and help of online friend(s).

Today’s tasks – continue with armour building. Materials: Latex gloves, face mask, spray paint, saws, craft knives, exacto knives, carpenter glue, markers, rulers, cardboard, gesso, sponge brushes, newspaper, art board (to sit on), vacuum cleaner.

Rare creature sighting on blog. o-o

Testing spray paint on knee armour.

Learning to spray paint. Pretty hard to breath with the heat and face mask, but it was OK~ Semi-gloss, so I don’t have to spend x-number of dollars on finish from Michaels'(King of all over-priced things).

Making pattern for leg plates.

That’s all for today. I really hope I have enough energy to finish this tomorrow, so I work on the weapons and the actual part of the cosplay (the clothes OTZ).


In case you missed my tiny contribution to this year’s Misprint, here’s a collab review of Hakuoki: Demon of the Fleeting Blossom with Pjcherri.

And if you’re wondering what I’m watching, yes, I started the AKB0048 anime. Unfortunately.

If you had the ability to trade one part of yourself away for something else, what would you choose? A memory, an ability, a belief? An actual, physical part of yourself? Would you trade it for yourself, or for the sake of someone else?

I didn’t finish this…yet.

I just wanted to use stars somewhere.

Vectors~ Inspiration- 398hajime on Deviantart // pixelanddead on Deviantart (as always)

Hybrid Media project: It took forever to render, and crashed programs repeatedly. But fun, once I stopped being afraid of it. Unfortunately that took a while to build up to. I slept a lot of my Reading Week away. XD
Rendering takes a long time.



Some updates on Reading Week activities- other than school.

Never had this kind of overwhelming enthusiasm for a PSP game before. This is what happens when you spend about 2 terms thinking about it. And drawing something new.

BRSB, or “Beast-chan” poses. I messed with the white balance a little to make it warm. (More, better, photos later, Robo.)

I’ll be uploading more photos soon, but have a safe and fun Reading Week! (Despite that “Reading Week” is implied to be a study period…no one treats it as such.)

The Club That Really Likes Anime is hosting a cosplay cafe! I wonder what people will dress up as…I’ll be there to take photos. ^_^

A wild beast appears!?!
