23 Years Old

Hey, I'm Akioh and I love OCs! Yeah. Also I study linguistics. Idk what to put here. Also I just decided to make the above pic my header here because that's what I'm using everywhere else, haha;;

Other Social Media:


Mood: Hungry, but kool. B)

YAY, I'm on summer break now. *U*b Just thought I'd mention, haha. I actually still have one more take home final to do, but it should be pretty easy... *u*;

But yeah, my plans for May are mainly to work on stuff for Nekocon. The applications are May 24th at 9:00 PM, so I've got like two weeks to try and finish some stuff to show for the application. >:V Right now I'm working on TWEWY keychain designs, and once I finish those I'll do some mini prints or something. WEEHHH I HOPE I GET IT BUT AT THE SAME TIME...
/scared individual

Anyway, not much else to say besides that. By the way, you may've already heard from the "What's happenin' on theO" section of the news, but Aryia's hosting a three week comment slam that starts today. :D It's not too hard, just three comments every day for the next three weeks! If you haven't already, maybe consider joining to help liven up theO for the next couple weeks. *u*b ♥

Also, I'm looking for new theO artists to subscribe to. >:m My backroom has been pretty slow, and I want to look at more art. *-* I also just want to make some new friends on theO, and see who's around these days. xD If you have any friends whose portfolio you think I should check out, maybe send their username my way! ;o

And yep, that's all I've got. Have a nice week, everyone!! :D

Happy Easter!

Mood: hubub.

Or happy Sunday, whichever works for you. This is like the first Easter that I'm not with my family, so it doesn't really feel like a holiday to me. xD;

ANYWAY, what's up guys. Been a while since I've posted in here. Hope you guys are all doing fine, I feel like I hardly socialize on theO anymore. ;0;/
Not much is going on over here, with me. There's only like a month left of the school year, which is weird... and nice, I'm ready for summer. xD I WANT TIME TO GOOF OFF AND DRAW.... I just worry that I'm not going to have any drive to draw when it actually is summer, though. orz Idk why I'm getting so slow about finishing drawings.

Uh, what else.
I think Nekocon's artist alley applications open in a month, which is BAD BECAUSE I HAVE LIKE NO DRAWINGS DONE.
But just about artist alleys in general: I really don't want to apply for a table by myself!! I NEED SOMEONE WHO'S DONE THIS BEFORE! I CAN'T DO THIS ALONE.... /;m; I have an internet friend who I think is tabeling at Anime Matsuri this very weekend, so maybe I'll just... ask them for lots of help and advice............
weeeehhhwklasjdflkas I can't do this poop HELP ME.

But yeah. Idk if I should even apply, 'cause not only do I want to get some drawings done, but I also want to finish my Virion cosplay. And also want make a Roy cosplay. I JUST WANT TO BE PRODUCTIVE THIS SUMMER BUT I KNOW I WON'T BE WEEHH. "orz Sorry this is turning into such a downer post, it wasn't supposed to;;; Ahaha.

SPEAKING OF ROY, I REALLY HOPE THEY BRING HIM BACK AS DLC FOR SSB4....!!! I'm actually feeling pretty hopeful, I have a feeling they're going to bring back all old players as DLC eventually, considering they've already brought back Mewtwo and Lucas. BUT JUST IN CASE THEY DON'T, I voted for him in the ballot thing. AND MAYBE.... YOU SHOULD TO....??? Again, there's a fair chance that old smash players won't be counted for this ballot because they may already be planned as DLC, but YEAH. I JUST WANT ROY IN SMASH....
As far as new characters go, I'd love to see Daisy as a player in smash. Or Toad/Toadette, that'd be interesting too, haha. Though Daisy would probably be cooler to play as.

....yeah I think I'm gonna just go and abruptly end this post now. THANKS FOR READING!!

Back from spring break!

Mood: Lazy butt

Heyooo, I'm back at school. :V Idk if I even mentioned if I was on break last week, sorry;;; Not really much to talk about, except that I'm not excited to get back to doing school work. ;u;

I did finish a bit of my armor for my Virion cosplay last week, though!

Twas quite an experience. Painting it really made it look a lot nicer than it did originally, so I'm pretty pleased with the outcome. JUST GOTTA FINISH THE REST OF IT NOW, HA HA....
I also really want to make a Roy cosplay, because HE'S THE BEST.

But yeah, speaking of costumes, I'm feeling iffy about going to Otakon this year. orz IT'S PRACTICALLY $100 THIS YEAR... I'm thinking of getting a summer job of some sort just to pay for everything. ;u;/ Though I don't really know what I'd do, and I've never had a job before. WAHHH. We'll see, idk. orz

...idk, I don't really have anything else about me to talk about. BUT! My friend just told me today that one of my favorite mangas is being made into an anime!!! *3* It's one of the few good BLs I've read, Doukyuusei.

I really liked the manga and all of the spin offs, but when I'd try to recommend it to people, they'd usually be put off by the art style. The animations look really pretty, though, I have a good feeling it'll do the manga justice. *U*/ If you like slice of life stuff with a kind of subtle (?) atmosphere, you might like reading it. I liked it. :m

AND WELL, that's about all I have for you. Happy week to the lot of you! :^D

Katsucon 2015 Cosplay Photos

Mood: Bathroom needs........ BUT POSTING, FIRST!

HEYOOO. I mentioned already, but I went to Katsucon 2015 this past weekend! :D It was lots of fun to hang out with my family and stare at everyone's beautiful cosplays. I didn't have time to make a costume for myself, but my sister whipped together a cosplay of Mikorin from Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun for me with the power of Forever 21, Amazon, embroidery, and old clothes. HERE'S SOME PHOTOS OF ME, IF YOU WANT TO SEE MY COSPLAY...!!!

This is a photo my sis took of me before we went to the convention. Trying really hard to look extremely cool............
This was like my go-to pose for the day. :^D

I went with these cool kids to Katsucon. That's my older sister on the left as Cordelia from Fire Emblem, and her boyfriend on the right as Trunks. My sister basically made all of our costumes, so she was pretty much the ~*~cosplay goddess~*~ this time around. (...as she normally is, actually, haha. xD;)

External Image
Halfway through Saturday, my sis dressed as Kashima from GSNK, so we ~*~matched~*~! That was fun, haha. :^D Not a lot of people recognized our cosplay, but we got a bit more recognition together than with me just being Mikorin all on his lonesome. xD

External Image
Facebook image URLs are freakishly long. ANYWAY, we ran into this super cute Kashima and Hori duo. so we took some pictures of them! :D Here's Mikorin being surrounded by beautiful Kashimas. And also Hori.

These next couple pictures were taken by my little sister! here's her flickr page, with other cool photos from Katsucon and just other stuff. :^DDD

I was trying really hard to ~*~woo~*~ the camera, the way that Mikorin does. It turns out making facial expressions is actually pretty difficult, and also embarrassing. xD I remember my little sis took a couple pictures of me getting embarrassed (which would also be rather Mikorin-like...), but she hasn't posted any of those. :m

External Image
Yah. It was really cold and kind of windy, why am I so gleefully smiling.
(I'm just kidding, taking pictures was actually pretty fun, haha.)

SO YEAH, that's what I wore to Katsucon. I liked how easy this was to walk around in, haha. I also like the red wig, because I MIGHT USE IT FOR A ROY COSPLAY EVENTUALLY.........
I kind of wish I knew I'd be getting a red wig, so I could have worked on a Roy cosplay for Otakon. I started a Virion cosplay during winter break, so that's probably what I'll be wearing for Otakon in the summer. BTW, IF ANYONE'S GOING TO OTAKON, let me know!!! *U*b Idk theO's kind of inactive and stuff these days, but MAYBE... SOMEONE IS AN EAST COASTER LIKE ME WHO GOES TO CONS... ;U;
I actually stopped by Yummy Suika (and friends') artist alley booth at Katsu, which was surprising. I don't usually see a name I recognize from theO at a convention. xD The artist alley was just really nice this year, though! :O The art direction seemed to be going away from heavily populated with sparkly anime toward this more cartoon-anime fusion. (Not that there's anything wrong with the sparkly anime style. It was just nice to see a bit more variety! *u*b) I bought a couple keychains and some prints for my friends and me. I WISH I BROUGHT MORE MONEY, THOUGH, THERE WERE SO MANY PRINTS I WANTED TO BUY.... BUBHBHBH. ;0;/ I need a job, haha;;;;;;;;

Speaking of artist alleys and ~*~jobs~*~, I'm thinking I want to try to apply for Nekocon, which is held in November. I think artist alley applications start in May, so I'm going to try to get some good stuff done for that. >:O The only issues are that Nekocon requires at least 50% original art (rather than fan art), and also I don't have anyone to share the table with. The original art thing isn't too big a deal because I like drawing original stuff, I just worry about whether or not people will want to buy original stuff. orz BUT MAINLY, I need someone to table with, hoo hahh hhahhhh..... maybe I'll find someone in my school's anime club who likes to draw. I'm pretty sure the anime club goes to Nekocon every year....
IF ANYONE HERE ON THE INTERNET WOULD LIKE TO TABLE WITH ME AND SPLIT THE $75 PRICE, PLEASE... LET ME KNOW... I don't even know if I'm going to apply and get accepted, idk why I'm even worrying about this right now.

BUT UM. Yeah, that's just stuff that's happened and I've been thinking about. HAVE A BEAUTIFUL WEEKEND, MY FRIENDS! :D

Challenge Ending Soon! :V

Hey guys! Just wanted to mention quickly that my challenge Fashion and Music is ending this Saturday!!! Sorry I never made a reminder earlier, but if you still want to enter you've got a couple days! *u*b
Thank you to all that have entered so far, too; if I haven't commented on your submission yet, I'm going to try to get around to that this weekend. ;u;/ I'm not sure when I'll decide on the winners... maybe by the 1st of March, I'll decide and let the winners know. :D
Okay, back to studying. HAPPY THURSDAY.
