Mood: Sick. Achoo.
I finished my Luli cosplay! 8D Yaaay.
Sorry I didn't get to post pictures on Halloween. xD; I had it finished by then, but I didn't want to use my little sister's camera...
I was going to post pictures a couple days ago on the day of the convention, but Takara didn't bring her camera to the convention... luckily, her friend came along and brought her camera (which is a very nice camera imo) and took pictures of Takara and me. 8D
SO HERE THEY ARE.
WOO. My wig is messy. 8D;
I didn't make the gloves, by the way. I just made the collar, cut the middle, and added frills to the sleeves of the dress.
Black and white! Where you can see how powdery my foundation is even though it's not powder foundation... (?)
Also, I'm wearing false lashes.
Me and Takara. Takara went as Amy Rose. :D I wore my glasses pretty much the whole day. I had to keep them near the tip of my nose because my false lashes kept getting in the way... xD; I kind of looked like a pink haired granny. :Y
Me and Takara again. This is the last one I have. :>
I thought Takara's friend had taken some full body pictures, but this is all that Takara sent me. So yeah... that's all you get. xD The dress is knee-high, and I was wearing lace stockings... yeah.
I didn't have an umbrella (I wanted to buy one), I just carried a pocket watch around. xD At the con, A lot of people recognized Takara, but I was surprised that a couple people wanted to take my picture, too. :o Someone also said to me "I've seen a lot of people with this costume. What character is it?" xD It was someone in line at McDonalds, so I don't think they were one of the con members. :m
I didn't buy a lot of stuff... I just got a necklace and a manga book. But there were a lot of cool costumes. I kept spotting this really cool steampunk pair, and I was just like, *A*
...I like steampunk. |D But anyways, fun time.
So far, I've cosplayed as 5 of my characters (3 at a con)... Luli and Stefan were the most recent, then in 10th grade I dressed up as Dare, Tomato, and once Rick.
One OC cosplay I won't be able to do is Gabe. Without the help of Anchor Arms that is...
I stole this from Wakusei Aoshi about a month ago...? xD Anyways, I just remembered I did this. FUN.
2. Tomato's Boyfriend
WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF...
1. Number 1 (Tomato) woke you up in the middle of the night?
Tomato: *on the phone with me* Heeeeey, Akioh! :D Like, what's up? I had a totally crazy morning, like, I was trying to get to this one restaurant, but there were so many people that I didn't have time to eat there or anything. And like there was traffic on the way to the museum. Ohmigod, it's totally crazy here!
Me: Tomato, it's only 3 in the morning here. orz Let me sleeeep...
Yaaay, time differences.
2. Number 2 (TB) asked you to go out with him/her?
Me: TOMATO'S BOYFRIEND! How would I call you Tomato's boyfriend if you're no longer Tomato's boyfriend?? What would I call you? AKIOH'S BOYFRIEND? AB?!?!??! WHAT? WHAT?
Also, I wouldn't go out with you because I don't date yet. :V
I don't think TB would ask me or anyone except Tomato out under any circumstances.
3. Number 3 (Stefan) walked into the bathroom while you're there?
Me: AGHK! Stefan! D: *Covers areas*
Stefan: Ah, I'm sorry! *closes door* I would advise you to lock the door next time.
4. Number 4 (Gabe) cooked you dinner?
Gabe: Hey, I made popcorn!
Me: POPCORN... *¬*
Gabe: Yeaaahhh, girl. My secret recipe. :U
Me: Butter, salt, and pepper, right?
Gabe: Yeah. BUT WHAT MAKES IT AWESOME IS THAT I MADE IT! >:D
Popcorn is one of the few things that Gabe knows how to cook. He can also make cereal, sandwiches, and spaghetti with store-bought sauce. Mm-mm. And really boring burgers without any cheese or even a bun. (MY COUSIN DOES THIS...)
He tends to order food or eat out. :V
Also, the "secret recipe" thing we're talking about is a reference to something Gabe says to someone. But Idk it's not important.
5. Number 5 (Jo) was lying next to you on the beach, sleeping?
Me: Agh. Sandy. I'm all sandy. I'm leaving. Gah, beach. Itchy. :T *taps Jo on the head* Jo, I'm going back to the beach house because I don't like the beach. D: Also, don't get sunburned! :D
Jo: Sure, whatever. See ya later... Oh, I'm wearing sunblock, by the way. *goes back to sleep*
6. Number 8 (Rick) got into the hospital somehow?
Me: RICKIE-RICK-RICK-RICKER!!!! ;A; WHAT HAPPENED? WHAT? WHY'RE YOU IN THE HOSPITAL?
Rick: Oh, I just um... broke my leg. ((idk why he'd be in the hospital.)) I'm okay now. :)
Me: Okay, cool man. Cool. Yeah. Uh...
I'm terrible about ending conversations.
7. Number 9 (Dare) made fun of your friends?
This... this is not even probable. Dare wouldn't make fun of my friends! xD But I guess we have to assume he did...
Dare: Akioh, your friends are wicked strange. Like... one of them never says anything, and the other one talks a lot about nothing and One Direction. What's up with that? :I
Me: Yeah well.... yeah.... They're not really strange to me. Yeah. :m
I'd probably be bad at defending my friends since I've never had to before.
8. Number 10 (Tim) ignored you all the time?
Me: Eh, he already does this. :m So whatever.
Tim: What? No I don't. D: I mean, maybe I used to when you were in 10th grade or something...
But really, I don't interact with my characters.
WHAT WOULD THEY DO UNDER THE FOLLOWING CIRCUMSTANCES?
1. Two serial killers are hunting you down. What will Number 1 (Tomato) do?
Hm... Probably freak out and call his boyfriend to save me. RATHER THAN CALLING THE POLICE...
2. You're on a vacation with Number 2 (TB) and you manage to break your leg. What does Number 2 do?
TB: ...We should probably go to ze hospital.
Me: It hurts... ;A;
*We drive to the hospital*
3. It's your birthday. What will 3 (Stefan) give you?
Stefan: Happy birthday, Akioh. I got you a--
Me: GEE, I sure hope it's a suit jacket just like yours, Stefan. *u*
Stefan: ...um, a pair of jeans. You don't own many decent pairs of jeans, after all.
Do you like wearing suits, Akioh? :I
Me: Oh no, not really. I just like the jackets. :Y BUT GEE. THANKS FOR THE PANTS, MAN.
I like to wear blazers because they make me feel like Stefan. xD; It's good for my posture. :Y I start sitting straight like Stefan when I wear blazers.
4. You're stuck in a house that's on fire. What does Number 4 (Gabe) do?
Gabe: AGH, SHOOT, HOUSE IS ON FIRE, HOUSE IS ON FIRE.... UH... I NEED A HOSE... NO WAIT! 911!
WAIT! DAMMIT! WE'RE IN FRANCE! WHAT THE HELL'S THE EMERGENCY NUMBER IN FRANCE?? ;A; AKIOH, DON'T DIE ON ME, WOMAN.
Eventually he'd figure it out and save me. Hopefully.
GABRIEL, YOU LIVE IN FRANCE. YOU MUST KNOW THESE THINGS...
5. You're about to do something that'll make you feel extremely embarrassed. What will Number 5 (Jo) do?
Me: I should wear this weirdo costume to school! Yeahhhhh.
Jo: Noooo, I don't think so.
Me: Too weird?
Me: Yeah... :<
6. You're about to marry Number 10 (Tim). What's Number 6's (Kasey's) reaction?
Me: Whoa, Tim. We're getting married. :o I've always wanted red head children... well not really, but red hair is cool. :D
Tim: Wait, what?
Kasey: CONGRAAAAATS, GUYYYYS! *u* Akioh, you should've totes made me your maid-of-honor! I'd've given you like the BEST WEDDING EVAR.
Kasey would do nothing to stop the situation. orz
7. You got dumped by someone. How will Number 7 (Dean) cheer you up?
Me: I just got dumped by that person I never went out with because I've never had a boyfriend. What?
Dean: O-oh, uhm... sorry to hear... there's always next time...?
There's no emoticons I can think of for Dean's facial expressions. xD;
Also, I think it's funny that number 7 is Dean, and he was left out of the first section of this meme.
8. You're angry about it afterwards, how does Number 8 (Rick) calm you down?
Me: ARGH, I AM ANGRY ANGRY.
Rick: Ah, uh... I'm sorry. ;A;
Me: Yaaaay, apologizing for no reason. That's something you got from me, you know. :V
Both questions 7 and 8 have not happened to me. Idk.
9. You compete in some tournament. How does Number 9 (Dare) support you?
Dare: YEAH, AKIOH! I BELIEVE IN YOUUUU. AWHHH, YESSSS. CHECK OUT MY SIGN. MY SIGN.
*holds up a sign that says "Akioh iz da bomb-shiggaty"* Eh? Ehhh? 8D
Me: DARE, YOU'RE SO DISTRACTING...
10. You can't stop laughing. What will Number 10 (Tim) do?
Tim: .____. Uh. I'm gonna leave now.
Me: TIM. *hehehehehehehe* WHYYY...
Tim: 'cause you're freaking me out! o______o
1. Number 1 (Tomato) is all you've ever dreamed of.
Me: *Sleeping* Can't stand... valley girl accent.... gahh...
And then I actually start talking like Tomato. AGH! That'd be terrible. xD; He'd probably talk so much in my dreams that I wouldn't be able to sleep.
This question actually probably has nothing to do with literal dreaming, but... THIS IS WHAT WAKUSEI AOSHI INTERPRETED IT AS, SO I'M GOING WITH IT.
2. Number 2 (TB) tells you about his/her deeply hidden love for Number 9 (Dare). Your reaction?
Me: TB! Stop having desires for other people! You're not AB or DB, you're TEEEE BEEE! TOMATO'S BOYFRIEND.
TB: Eet eez not my fault, eet eez ze meem! :(
For some reason, I wanted to write his dialogue in a weird french accent this time around. Because it's hard for me to imagine him with an accent.
3. You're dating Number 3 (Stefan) and introduce him/her to your parents. Will they get along?
Me: Daddy, meet my 30 year old boyfriend! 8D And he has a job, too! He's totally rich! 8DDD HE CAN PAY FOR COLLEGE!
My Dad: WHAT?!
Stefan: Akioh, this is just too weird. ._. (Also, I'm not rich.)
Me: Yeah, I would never actually date you considering you're practically 15 years older than me...
My mom and Stefan would probably get along under normal circumstances. My dad and Stefan would on politics, but maybe not elsewhere.
4. Number 4 (Gabe) loves Number 9 (Dare) as well. What does that mean?
Holy cow, it means Dare is popular.
It also means Gabe is a little bit creepy, because Dare is 10 years younger than him, and looks like he's 15 years old.
5. Number 6 (Kasey) appears to be a player; he/she breaks many hearts. What do you do?
Haha, Kasey a player...? xD Okay. Sure.
I wouldn't do anything. :V My characters can do what they want.
6. You had a haircut and Number 7 (Dean) can't stop looking at you. What goes on in your mind?
Me: *thinking* I had Gabe cut my hair. It's all short again. :M Huh? Why is Dean looking at me funny? .___. Maybe he thinks I look weird?
Dean: *thinking* Wow, Gabe never cuts girls' hair! Akioh is amazing. ;u;
7. Number 8 (Rick) thinks he’ll/she'll never get a boyfriend. What will you tell him/her?
Me: IT'S OKAY, JUST STOP GOING AFTER DARE AND AIM FOR SOME TIM!
Rick: What? ;A;
Me: Oh wait, I wasn't supposed to say that.
SHAPOW! *runs away*
8. Number 9 (Dare) is too shy to face you and confesses their love by sending you an e-mail. Now what?
Dare: Oh, Akioh replied to that e-mail I meant to send to Loyal!
E-mail: Dare. MAN UP AND SAY IT TO MY FACE IF YOU'RE GONNA SAY IT. GOSH, MAN. YOU'RE NEVER GONNA GET LOYAL LIKE THAT. Love, Akioh. :D
Dare: Harsh, Akioh. Harsh.
1. Could Number 1 (Tomato) and Number 6 (Kasey) be soul mates?
Tomato and Kasey? No. xD
2. Would Number 2 (TB) trust Number 5 (Jo)?
Hm, TB and Jo... Yeah, I guess TB would trust Jo well enough with watching his property/etc, but not with secrets/etc. They're not totally close.
3. Number 3 (Stefan) wants to go shopping, will Number 7 (Dean) come along?
If Stefan asks, I'm sure Dean would come along. xD Actually Stefan likes talking to Dean. HE REMINDS STEFAN OF HIS YOUTH... somehow.
Stefan, you're not that old. Calm down, my friend.
4. Number 4 (Gabe) is bored and pokes Number 10 (Tim). What happens after that?
Gabe: *poke poke* :m
Tim: Hey whoa, what was that, man? :I
Gabe: Aaagh, I'm totally bored... >:T Hey. I like your hair, redhead. Is it naturally like that?
Tim: Yeah. And it's Tim.
Gabe: Tim? Huh. Hey, you're pretty cute. How old are you? :D Wanna hang out at my place later?
5. Number 5 (Jo) and Number 1 (Tomoat) are forced to go back to school together. What study will they pick?
I think Tomato actually dropped out of high school at 16.
/I don't remember
6. If Number 6 (Kasey) and Number 3 (Stefan) cooked dinner, what would they make?
Stefan and Kasey make... Salad! And pasta! Or something. Kasey would make the salad 'cause it's easy. Stefan makes the mysterious pasta. Actually, Stef's a pretty decent cook. Kasey's alright, too.
7. Number 7 (Dean) and Number 9 (Dare) apply for a job. What job?
JOB AT A MUSIC STORE. Sure.
They both have jobs already, actually. But I'm sure you knew that. :m
(Dean is part of Tomato's personal styling crew, Dare works at Charlie's Pub and with Something Impossible.)
8. Number 8 (Rick) gives Number 5 (Jo) a haircut. Is that okay?
Jo: Are you any good at this?
Rick: Oh, um... Well, I'm okay. Sometimes I cut Dare's hair. :D;
Jo: I should just ask Gabe for a haircut...
9. Number 9 (Dare) sketches what Number 6's (Kasey's) perfect girlfriend should look like.
Kasey: Um, I don't date girls, sorry! D:
Dare: Oh. Uhhhhh... I was just doodling some random girl. :D; I was totally not having lesbian fantasies about you.
Serious right now.
I'm sure Dare's mind wanders occasionally. o3o
10. Number 10 (Tim) and Number 8 (Rick) are blushing while they talk. What is their conversation about?
Apparently, Rick took my advice from one of the earlier questions and is talking to Tim.
Idk, maybe they just blush when they talk to eachother.
RICK BLUSHES WHEN HE TALKS TO ANYONE...
But when I draw my characters, I always draw blush marks on their cheeks. xD; No matter what.
And there's that.
Now, if you'll excuse me... I have the strange desire to sort out the OFAV characters' salaries. 8I
I almost forgot about Kailith's questions! ;u;
1. Do you think Canadians say ABOOT instead of about?
Hm... Some of them probably do. Maybe it depends on what part of Canada you're from? I've never heard Justin Bieber or Alanis Morissette use the word "about" before, so I don't know. .u. (The only two Canadian celebrities that I can think of off-hand...) Kailith, you're Canadian right? Do you hear people say "aboot", or yourself say "aboot"? xD
2. What was the last book you read? Did you like it?
Pnin by Vladimir Nabokov. I didn't care for it while I was reading, but after I read it I decided it was kind of an interesting story. :D Haha. The animation I did was based off that book.
3. Do you read fanfiction?
Nah. I'm actually really terrible about reading... ;u; I used to like reading a lot more, but now I have trouble focusing while reading. xD;
That's also why I'm so behind in the MCC... ;A;
4. What is your OTP (One True Pairing)?
Hm... I don't really know. As I said in another set of questions, one of my favorite pairings is CLAMP's Syaoran and Sakura. Other pairings that I like are Haru Glory x Elie (Rave Master), Ash x Misty (Pokemon), other things that I can't think of at the time...
Of my OCs, my favorites are Tim x Rick, Zack x Michka (though I hardly draw them... ;A;), Gabe x Stefan, and Danny x Jo. Yeah, Loyal and Dare... I have so much trouble with them. orz
5. Favourite Disney movie?
Oh, I didn't know Canadians used the British spelling for favorite! .o. Anyways.
Probably Aladdin. :D OH! Or Hercules. Yep. :D
6. Are you dressing up for Hallowe'en and if so, what are you going as?
Yes, I did! I dressed as my OC Luli. :D Unfortunately, I don't have pictures... yet.
I'm dressing up as her again on Saturday for Anime USA (an anime con). 8D Takara's going to take pictures, so I'll post them then. If you're going to AUSA, maybe you'll see me! xD I'll have pink hair.
7. Are you going to marathon all of the LOTR movies before The Hobbit comes out in theatres?
Nope. But I did just recently see all of the LOTR movies! I hadn't seen them before. They're actually QUITE GOOD... :M I had fun watching them.
Sam is my favorite. I don't know why. >:I YEAH.
Frodo was cool in the beginning, but got progressively weirder...... I thought he'd get all cute at the end again, but he just stayed serious. ;A;
Gollum is weird, and I keep thinking his name is Smeargle... ._.
8. Tea or coffee?
Tea! 8D I don't like coffee much, but I like tea with cream and sugar/honey. :9
9. What is your best trait?
Idk. 8D Haha.
10. Would you ever (or have you ever) met someone from the internet IRL?
Hm... Depends on who it would be...? I generally don't like to meet people from the internet in real life, but if I happened to run into you at a convention or something, that'd be kind of cool. :m
I haven't met anyone from the internet irl.
And there's that. 8D
Well then. I was tagged by killjill.
I'M THE POPS!
But first, some normal stuff. :m
I wrote my first college essay! 8D It was required by my English class to do one... yeah. xD; I actually wrote it a while ago, and just got it back earlier this week. I got a 95. Woo! :M Good enough for me.
I wrote it about Dare... haha. I wonder what the college people will think of it. -u- Haha.
Also college related, I got my SAT scores. This is my 2nd time taking it, and I improved so HOORAAAAAAY! :D Hoohah. But my mom wants me to take it one more time to up my math score. I didn't study for math last time 'cause I leant my math workbook to a friend. xD;
J-JUST ONE MORE TIME...
The SAT is so long.
Oh, and on something that's sort of related to college, I'm going to be joining the National Art Honors Society at my school... which I'm kind of "ehhh" about, but yeah... I generally don't like joining honors societies, but I don't have any extracurriculars on my resume right now. ;___; SO I NEED AT LEAST ONE...
Okay then, question time!
RULE 1: POST THE RULES. RULE 2: ANSWER THE QUESTIONS THE TAGGER SET FOR YOU IN THEIR POST, THEN MAKE 11 NEW ONES. RULE 3: TAG 11 PEOPLE AND LINK THEM TO YOUR POST. RULE 4: LET THEM KNOW YOU’VE TAGGED THEM.
1. What brought you here on theOtaku.com?
I think Takara used a lot of wallpapers here for layouts on xanga.com... Which was probably around 2006. We also used to read a lot of fan comics. I joined because I wanted to upload drawings and start my TAOMAR web comic. :D
2. Do you ever get bored when you're in the car?
Not really. Since I don't drive, I have a lot of time to daydream/space out/think about my characters/think about random things, which is strangely one of my favorite pastimes. .u. Haha. I like spacing out. But I like talking too! People don't really know that, so I tend not to be spoken to. xD
3. What is your favorite band? If you have more than one, name your top 3.
Third Eye Blind
...those are my favorite 3 I think, in no particular order. :9
4. Who are you in love with? If you're not currently in love, tell me your favorite fictional character.
I am in love with EVERYONE. 8D I used to say that a lot to myself in elementary school, that I love everyone. It's still true, but I haven't consciously brought it to my thoughts recently. Everyone, I love you! :D
As far as romantic love goes, I'm not in romantic love.
My favorite fictional character is still Roy... ;u; Haha. He's probably why I took Japanese class in the first place. (I wanted to be able to play the FE game he's in and read the Japanese... xD) (I don't have the game, though. orz)
5. What is it you like about your crush/favorite fictional character?
Since I've only played SSBM with Roy in it, I'm going to have to be superficial and say I like his appearance. xD Since I don't know anything about his REAL personality...
MY SECRET LOVE FOR RED HEADS COMES FROM YOU, ROY...
Tim. Roy is your precursor.
Tim: D: I THOUGHT I WAS ORIGINAL...
Tim's first name also came from this red head guy I know. Tim seems like such a red head name. :m
/red head stereotype (????)
6. You ever thought about something other than anime? If yes then what is it?
Haha, yeah. xD I don't think about anime often, because I don't watch a whole lot. Also, it's hard for me to get obsessed with characters in fiction because they have a set personality... which is difficult for me to emulate in my mind. (As in, if I were thinking of scenarios for fictional characters, I'd get their personalities wrong.)
Which is probably why I like Roy so much, because I can make him act however I want. >:D
What I usually think about is my characters, things I should draw but may not ever get around to it, weird things I said at one point that make me cringe upon remembrance (??), things I disagree with, things I agree with, homework, how I have a lot of homework, going to college soon....
Yeah. WOO, RANDOM THINGS!
7. What color eyes do you have?
8. What color eyes do you wished you have?
Blue or green eyes are cool. 8D But I have trouble telling them apart, for some reason... My friend has blue eyes, but sometimes I think they look green. ;~; Maybe it's because I expect blue eyes to look like vibrant cerulean blue, like Dare's eye color? xD
9. What is the most randomest thing ever happened to you in life?
HM.... Well, random things don't really happen to me. xD If I think of something, I'll re-answer this.
10. Do you like the people in theOtaku?
I think the people on theO are generally very nice. :D I don't think any members are ever especially rude to each other. Which is pretty cool. There are a lot more mean people on dA. I've never personally encountered any of them, but I've seen some comments/etc.
11. Will you still like all the things you love right now when you grow older?
Maybe, but I'm sure my opinions on things I like will vary. :M
Yeah. I'll do some questions, but I won't tag anyone. xD You can answer them if you want. Sorry that they're kind of weird. I felt like making them like that. .u. And it's kind of more than just 11 because some questions have more than one question in them... xD;; Sorry.
1. Do you like to take photos? What do you like to take photos of and why?
2. Do you like to draw? What do you like to draw and why?
3. Do you prefer Rogerian Argumentation or Aristotelian Argumentation? Or neither? If you don't know what those are, google them! Be informed! :D You know you're curious...
4. How important do you consider it to answer these questions honestly?
5. What do you think is important for other people to know?
6. Do you have any philosophies regarding how you live your life? (You don't have to say something "corny" like "give everything 110%" if you don't believe it.)
7. How opinionated do you consider yourself?
8. Do you consider other people's opinions important?
9. Do you like math? Why or why not?
10. Do you know what a logical fallacy is? (If no, google it! Inform yourself again! :D)
11. If you answered "yes" to the last question, how many different types of logical fallacies do you know? List them! 8D (This is like a quiz...;;;)
If you answered "no" to the last question, do you like to think into the future? Why or why not?
Wah. Weird questions. I tried to make them interesting, but... yeah, they're just odd. xD I SOUND LIKE A WEIRD TEACHER PERSON OR SOMETHING...
