Hey guys, Otakon was last weekend!! If you were wondering why I wasn't active last week, it was 'cause I was busy trying to make my Kjelle costume. orz I DIDN'T EVEN FINISH EVERYTHING, BUT OH WELL........... Here's some pics of the costumes my sis and I made last week!
From left to right it's my little sister as Donnel, me as Kjelle, my older sister as Nowi, and my older sister's boyfriend as Owain. We're all from Fire Emblem: Awakening. I made my little sister's shirt and my costume, my older sister made her and her boyfriend's costume as well as my little sister's pants.
Since we were all FE characters, we showed up to the FE photoshoot on Saturday. *u*
My little sister did so great as Donny, btw. LOOK AT HER HILARIOUS POSE LIKE HE DOES... Everyone was crazy about her Donny cosplay, though. It was really funny. :,D
Idk, my older sister took this dramatic shot. Most of my costume pretty much deteriorated as the day went on... ;U; Most of the hot glue came undone, haha;;; I had to change clothes.
I didn't take too many cosplay pictures this year, but I DID SEE THIS AMAZING WALPURGISTNACHT COSPLAY...!
Pretty insane, yo.
Besides cosplay and buying stuff, I also met up with iiwi, from deviantART! We art traded, n' stuff, so I got SOME SUPER CUTE STUFF.....!!! ;U;
WAH CUTIE TOMATO AND COOL BUTT DARE. ;U;U;U; Idk where to stick the Tomato sticker, yet, but I'll find ~*~a special place~*~
Anyway, Otakon was super fun this year. *u* We met and talked with a lot of nice people, and saw some super neat cosplays. I'm plannng on going next year, as well. If you're going to be there, tell me so we can meet up! 8D YEAH!
Stolen from Kyle! :V
1: What is your name and does it mean anything?
Akioh’s not my real name, but it’s what I go by on the internet! :V I like to stay ~*~a mystery~*~. It doesn’t mean anything. I came up with it because I used to read the Akiko series in elementary school, and Akioh sounds sort of like Akiko. …Yeah, I’ve been using this pseudonym since elementary school… .u.
2: How long have you known your best friend?
I don’t really have a best friend, so…
If I had to choose, I’d say my best friend is my older sister, who I’ve known since BIRTH. WOOHOO.
3: What position do you normally sleep in?
Idk. I move around a lot when I try to get to sleep, because my legs and arms always fall asleep. orz
4: Were you a part of any “clique” in high school?
Not really. I had a grand total of two people who I was good friends with, and a handful of other friends. Idk what “cliques” they were in. I guess one of my good friends was sort of popular and mainstream, and my other good friend was sort of quiet and borderline “goth”.,,????? IDK. I surprisingly didn’t hang out with the quirky anime/manga/video game group, but idk if I would’ve fit in there, either. That group was surprisingly extroverted.
BUT WHATEVER, HIGH SCHOOL……
5: Who was your favorite teacher in high school and why?
My favorite teacher was probably my 11th grade history teacher. She was very nice, funny, and seemed like a genuinely good person! I’ve had funny teachers, before, but idk if it’s just the place I live or not, but most funny teachers are funny through sarcasm and borderline insults. She was from out of town (?) and had a really refreshing sense of humor! I was also impressed that she had the skills to engage a class of 16 year olds in American History lectures. :V
6: Do you wish to travel a lot?
Nah. I’m not really one for traveling. It makes me feel like I don’t know what time it is or that I’ve lost a lot of time due to the car ride/plane ride/whatever.
7: Did you participate in any sports while in school?
Nah. I did a grand total of two extracurricular activities in my high school life: full orchestra afterschool in sophomore year, and (mainly obligatory) art honors society in senior year.
8: Show a sample of your handwriting:
Read my comics for some beautiful samples. :^D
9: Have you ever given blood?
Nah. I remember I had blood taken for some medical thing, one time…? But that’s obviously not the same. I’m a real wimp when it comes to stuff, so I probably would not enjoy having my blood taken, either.
10: Do you like the way that you grew up?
Yeah. I think I lived a pretty diverse life! :M Whatever that means.
11: Do you like your siblings? Why or why not?
I love my sisters! I’m pretty sure I’ve mentioned, but I have an older sister (who’s on theO under the username afterglow) (yeah she’s that weird lady who always leaves me crazy comments) who recently graduated from college, and a younger sister in high school. They’re really funny and nice people, and my family, so YEP.
LOTS O’ LOVE UP IN HERE.
12: How did you meet your best friend and why did you become friends?
One day, I was born. My older sister was there. So I said, “wahh,” because I was a baby.
13: Name one movie that made you cry.
HM… I cry pretty easily, so I thought this would be easy… BUT… hm. I know I cried when I watched the end of The Boy in the Striped Pajamas and The Invasion of the Body Snatchers, but that’s just it. I’ve only seen the end of those movies. *u*;;; I also cried during the Twilight Zone episode, “Time Enough to Last,” but that’s not a movie. I probably cried after watching Awakenings, but I don’t really remember.
14: Do you prefer to read poetry, write poetry, or neither?
Probably neither, but if I had to choose, I think I’d read poetry. I’ve written poems for school and attempted song lyrics before, but it’s not something I think I have a knack for. Though I do kind of like writing it, ‘cause it’s kind of fun to play with the rhythms of words and stuff. :V
15: Things about someone that you find attractive?
Idk. Being not mean is nice.
/a great and logical sentence
16: What song are you currently listening to?
NOTHING… I was listening to the Rurouni Kenshin theme, because my sister and I are watching it. :V We used to watch it when we were younger, but not really understand it. So maybe now that we’re OLD AND CAN UNDERSTAND STORYLINES we’ll actually get it.
17: Have you ever broken a bone? If so, how?
18: A random memory from you childhood:
My earliest memory is eating a red crayon in a corner. I remember it tasted bad, but looked delicious. It is completely possible that I just made up this memory. IT FEELS LIKE IT HAPPENED, THOUGH…!
19: Where did you grow up?
Middle of the east coast, USA! In some suburb area. Very exciting.
20: What was the last thing you watched on tv?
Rurouni Kenshin! Surprisingly better than I remember, actually. :V
21: Do you think you’d make a good parent?
Maybe, I’m not entirely sure. I’m not really sure how to take care of infants and toddlers, so it’d probably be best if I did some research on parenting, first. And idk, I guess it’s up to my kid to decide whether or not I’m a good parent…? Not really sure. I’m usually not too bad with kids, though. (To my surprise, actually;;)
22: Would you like to meet any of your Tumblr friends in person?
I don’t have any friends that I know strictly on tumblr, but I’d like to meet some of them! :M And some of y’all from theO, too.
22: What was the last dream you remember having?
LAST NIGHT, I had this dream that Gabe was my uncle! And I had this weird new cousin that doesn’t exist who was quizzing me, Gabe, and my older sister about weird 90s facts. (???) And for some reason, one of the answers to some quiz question was “Sugar Ray” (like the band), and then I started making fun of Gabe for stealing Mark McGrath’s hair and what I am such a cruel niece.
I feel like this isn’t the first dream I had with Gabe in it. He kind of appears in my dreams more than my other OCs.
23: When is your birthday?
April 25th, 1995. :^D
24: How many pillows do you sleep with?
I like to sleep with a minimum of 3, but more is even better. *u*;; Haha.
25: Do you wear glasses? If so, how long have you been wearing glasses?
Yep. Apparently I wore them when I was a toddler, but I remember having to get glasses for distance when I was in 5th grade.
26: What color is your hair?
I say dark brown, but the majority says black. >:T
27: Name 5 facts about your appearance:
I have a nose.
I have a mouth.
I have brown eyes.
I have hands.
I have feet.
28: What is your favorite soda?
Dr. Pepper, or something.
29: What is a strange talent that you have?
I can do that clover thing with my tongue. TOTALLY USEFUL.
30: How’s the weather right now?
Cloudy, it looks like. Idk about the temperature.
31: Why did one of your friendships end?
HM… idk, usually friendships kind of fade out because I stop talking to people. Not intentionally, but just because I forget to or don’t instigate conversation or they don’t talk to me. Usually I don’t talk to people unless they say something to me first, which is also true with my friends. Idk, I’m not the greatest at sustaining friendships. Obviously, I could be better if I tried to be better about it.
32: Who do you miss right now?
I haven’t seen my grandparents in a while, and I’d like seeing my cousins on my mom’s side of the family… :o
33: Why did your last relationship end?
Because it never existed! 8D I’ve never been in a relationship.
34: Are you still figuring out who you are?
Idk, not really. I don’t feel like figuring out “who I am” was ever too important to me. Or maybe I don’t feel comfortable saying anything definitive such as “this is who I am,” nor do I want to.
/pretentious answer BUT HEY IT’S THE TRUTH
35: Have you ever been admitted to a hospital? Why?
Yeah, I had to get surgery once. :V
36: What is your favorite restaurant?
UH…. I LIKE THESE LOCAL RESTAURANTS… I’d say the name, but ~*~that’d give away my location!~*~
Not that you don’t already know where I’m at, aha;;; I get the feeling that my general location is pretty obvious, even beyond living in the mid-Atlantic area.
37: What is word that you always seem to spell wrong?
SO MANY THAT I CAN’T THINK OF RIGHT NOW… High school is one, which I always spell as highschool. But yeah, if not for google chrome, I’d be typo-ing it up. :V;;;
38: Would ever adopt kids?
Probably! I wouldn’t be surprised with myself if I adopt in the future.
39: What is your favorite kind of pizza?
CHEESE. I’m a great and boring individual.
40: What was your first thought when you woke up this morning?
“Wait, what was I dreaming about, I know I was dreaming about something…”
41: When was the last time you got really really happy and why?
HM… NOT SURE? Probably a couple weeks ago, watching fireworks with my family. I was doing great old man/lady voices with my little sister.
42: What’s the strangest thing you’ve ever eaten?
UH… IDK… I’m not an adventurous eater. I like calamari, so… squid?
43: How do you start a conversation?
Usually don’t. BUT IF I WERE TO… HM………
Probably with, “So, uh……… [insert vaguely relevant topic]”
44: What’s a band you’ve been obsessed with lately?
Haha, idk. I always like Third Eye Blind, but I recently-ish realized how cool the Police are. I knew a fair amount of Police songs before, but then I listened to Ghost in the Machine because I didn’t know what else to listen to at the time. Pretty good album, in my opinion! :V
45: Do you come from a family “of money?”
Yeah, my parents are pretty well off. I’m probably the smallest spender in my family, but I’m apparently pretty un-frugal (?) with money compared to my friends.
46: Do you have a bucket list?
47: What is your favorite series of books?
I don’t really read, so Idk. I liked the Amber Brown and, as I mentioned before, Akiko books in elementary school.
48: When was the last time you laughed so hard your stomach hurt?
Can’t remember, but I just have a pretty bad memory. xD;
49: Where do you go when you’re sad?
On the computer, or in my room, or on the couch, idk.
50: 5 random facts about yourself:
MY NAME’S NOT REALLY AKIOH!
I’M RIGHT HANDED!
I’M FILLING OUT A QUESTIONNAIRE THING!
I CAN’T THINK OF A FOURTH FACT, RIGHT NOW!
I DON’T HAVE ANY PIERCINGS!
OKAY, YEAH, THAT TOOK LONGER THAN ANTICIPATED...
