I saw Izuzu15 and Alchemic Mushroom make cosplay packs for their characters, so I wanted to give it a try. I made one of my OC Chiminey. :D
The socks, wig, tie, and belt are from e-bay; the white shirt is from ASOS fashion finder; the blazer is from House of Fraser website; the gloves are from Polyvore.com; the shorts are from frocksrus.com; the shoes are from milanoo; and the hat is from Etsy. I found most of this stuff through Google. :V
Total price: $659.77
I don't... I don't even know why it would cost so much... xD I think it's the GUCCI LEATHER GLOVES THAT ARE LIKE $230...
And so, yes. If you ever cosplay as Chiminey, it will cost you $660. Always. Every time.
I couldn't find a wig with a ponytail. ;u; BOO-HOO. Oh well. This is close enough I guess.
Moooorning. Dx I woke up feeling kind of like I should go back to sleep... but it was already 9:45, so I woke up. -u-b It's 11:06, now.
Anyways, I wrote a poem for English class, which I thought I'd share with you. :V The last time I wrote a poem was one I came up with on the fly for English in 10th grade... which I have since lost. xD My teacher gave us like half an hour to write it. xD;;
I think the last time I posted a poem here was in 2009... this gem, here. Oh yeah. Poetry writing at its finest.
It's weird that the poem I linked to up there is a villanelle, because the poem I wrote just a few days ago for English is a villanelle too. xD Here it is:
Mister S, You Work So Hard.
In buttoned suit and tie, he'll guarantee,
with not a wrinkle found within his coat,
he's not so different from you or me.
Of course, his university degree
Deems him quite erudite--a worthy gloat.
In buttoned suit and tie, he'll guarantee.
His moral tones he holds in high esteem.
But take away his prudery, you note,
He's not so different from you or me.
He seeks delight in books and poetry.
Relationships: deliberately smote.
He's starched his suit and tie--he guarantees
That twiddling boys belong to bourgeoisie.
From higher up, away he sees them float,
For he's so different from you and me.
In solitude he's curled with chin on knee,
And sallow eyes, raw cheeks, and clogging throat.
His suit and tie hung up, he'll guarantee
He's not so different from you and me.
It's about Stefan, if you couldn't tell. :V (I-I CAN ONLY WRITE ABOUT MY CHARACTERS, OKAY...)
This took me like 2+ hours to write. ;u; The first lines I came up with were "But take away his prudery, you note, He's not so different from you or me"...which is randomly in the middle of the poem. xD What?
When I noticed those lines were conveniently in iambic pentameter, I thought I should try to write a poem in iambic pentameter. What a butt. That was so troublesome. orz And I still messed up, because I couldn't figure out what words I could use to get one line in iamb. ;u; WEH--
Also, I didn't know the word "erudite" before this poem. YEAH, THESAURUS!
Anyways, I hope you liked that/thought it was interesting/something. xD; I haven't gotten it back from my teacher yet, but when I handed it in she liked the title... yeah.
ALSO, I CAN'T BELIEVE IT'S ALMOST VALENTINE'S DAY!
/hasn't started V-day Secret Santa yet
We have until the 28th, so... yeah. ;u;
Have a nice Sunday! :D Abrupt ending. Yeah.
My hair is at a length where I can make it look like Dean Johnson's hair.
Aw, yeah. Dean-Akioh staring off into the sunset... or mirror, because that's what I was actually looking at. 8D
Also, I'm the master of taking blurry photos. WOO-HOO.
Oh yeah, I had a portfolio review thing, didn't I?
It went about as good as I expected it to go... which is "very extremely awkward and weird"-like. :I;;;;; I think the weird thing was that the guy reviewing my portfolio asked almost no questions, so sometimes I was thinking "W-WHAT AM I GOING TO SAY..."
One of the questions he did as was "What's your favorite band?"
Anyways, he told me if I do get accepted that I'll have to start creating drawings that actually mean something. I know most of my drawings don't have a meaning per-se, and I definitely see his point. At the same time, I don't want to draw force some shocking/"meaningful" drawing out of myself just for the sake of it. :m The school focuses a lot on gallery artists, and I don't see myself as a gallery artist... I just want to go to school to learn how to draw better. I'm still on the fence about going to that school if I even get accepted.
So yep. There's that.
Oh, also, when people were putting up their portfolios they were really good. *3* But I was too embarrassed to look at them because mine was boring. HOHO...
Another weird thing was that I was the only one dressed up. My mom wanted me to look business-savvy, so I just kind of rolled with it. Everyone else was pretty casual, though. xD;
YEP. I should go do some homework, now. 8D Bye!
Hey guys! I have a portfolio review tomorrow! 8D
I'm pretty nervous, yeah. orz About half of my portfolio is stuff I did in school, and the other half is stuff I've posted on theO before. I-I HOPE THEY DON'T THINK I'M SOME ANIME FREAK...
...Says the person on "theOtaku" dot com. -u-;
Anyways yeah. THAT'S WHAT'S GOIN' ON TOMORROW... 8D
Also, I'm excited to start my Secret Santa drawing. :D
Really short post! I have to sleep soon.
For the Valentine's Day SS event
Hello secret Santa! :D Here's my wishlist! I hope you find something to draw that interests you!
1) Any of my OCs, which can be found floating around my portfolio or in the introduction of my Various Planning world.
Some of my favorites are:
Or if you're ambitious and up for drawing a couple, my favorites are Zack and Michka or Stefan and Gabe (who I linked to at the top). (Yeah, the last one's bl.) (Sorry.)
2) Jun Fujiwara and/or Shin Tachibana from Negative-kun to Positive-kun.
It's a BL, but it's reeeeeeeeeeeeeeally tame. It's PG at the absolute highest. You can draw either one of them if you don't like drawing bl or two people in a picture, but I'd prefer a picture of them together. :)
Also, I really recommend the manga, even if you don't like BL! 8D It's really cute! And it's practically G-rated! I'm saying this now because not many people have read it and there's no fan art for it on dA... ;u;
Refs: [click] (Shin on the left, Jun on the right)

[black and white] (Shin on the right, Jun on the left)
3) And as always, Marth, Roy, Ike, and/or Pit from the Super Smash Bros series are always an option. c:
References: [Marth], [Roy], [Ike], [Pit]
Or you could draw them in these school uniforms I used to draw them in all the time. :D
THANKS IN ADVANCE, SECRET SANTA!!!! ;U; Good luck with drawing the picture, and happy early Valentine's Day!
