Wow I am so behind on LJ it's not even funny.

So I went to SakuraCon (anime con in Seattle) this weekend so I'm like 5 days behind on everything because of getting ready and just being there. I have to say, this was probably the best one I've been to yet. We were so busy too! We didn't get to attend any panels, but there weren't really any good panels this year, cept we should have gone to Zap Brannigan's panel XD

So Tabs, my friend Lara and I were a group who went around together this year. I was Roxy Lalonde from Homestuck day 0, then also until about 4pm on Friday, then I changed into my god tier Aradia costume, complete with wings. Lara was WV, and after 4, Tabs took my Roxy costume for the photoshoot. Saturday, we were an Assassin's Creed group: I was Altair, Tabs was Malik, and Lara was a Templar/Maria Thorpe. I had an apple of eden and omg it was the best cosplay prop ever. A bunch of people asked to take closeup shots of it, and also complimented us on the fabric choices for our cosplays (we made the whole things ourselves). Sunday Lara decided to go to easter brunch with her family (because they have lots of wine!) and I went to the con to dork around as Roxy, and Tabs was Shaun from AC2.

I think the reason we had so much fun was everyone was so chill and fun, and we met a group of AC2 multiplayer cosplayers that were just insanely awesome. We were walking in the exhibition hall Friday, and I pointed at a guy and said "Prowler!" and he was so excited that I recognized who he was cosplaying XD We bummed around with him a few times, then met the rest of the group the next day and went around with them and had drinks and such. They were all very cool and we're all thinking about doing a group cosplay for PAX or SakuraCon 2013.

I think my favorite cosplay was probably the simplest one. There were some gorgeous elaborate ones, but my favorite has to go to the blind girl who was cosplaying Terezi. She was utterly fabulous and was telling people how excited she was that there was a character she could cosplay that was just like her. It wasn't just that, she actually had a perfect damn outfit, hair, horns and prop of a scalemate with a noose. She was also eating chalk which made me die laughing. And she had the most amazing smile ever.

Okay going to end this wordy post with how glad I am we met some awesome people and had such a fun time. Tons of people took our pictures, but I have yet to find group shots of us as the AC trio :( Time to go digging for more today!

Over the recent hullabaloo with the lj practices, I made a dw for kicks and had fun screwing with the colors. Please tell me if you had be friended on lj and what your username was if it's different and you're friending me :D

Since my last update, I have done a lot of things!

Assassin's Creed! I've beaten all 4 games, and the DLCs. Still not interested in the multiplayer though. I made a very annoyed rant on tumblr about how the newest game disappointed me. I don't want to spoil you flist, if you are going to play it, but let's just say there really was no last boss. And I feel they wasted money on the multiplayer instead of the storyline of the single player campaign.

We have a cat! )

I started reading Homestuck. As if you couldn't tell from my halloween post. Oh gog no, she's reading Homestuck. Whatever. If you don't like Homestuck, I really don't mind :) Tabs isn't into it, but she loves the music, and so do I. I started reading it on a whim to be honest. I kept seeing people cosplaying it and tried reading it once and was like, 'this is crap' and went to do something else. I think I then saw friends on tumblr reblogging stuff and gave it another try. I have to be honest and say I'm really impressed by the depth of the storyline and how complicated it gets with the time travel aspect mixed with the scratch's multiple universes. I was also impressed by how well each character has their own way of speaking and flaws. I really liked that they stayed true to their own character. Gonna stay with this one for a while, because I enjoy laughing at people who take it way too seriously. I also like that the creator Hussie takes making it seriously, but doesn't take himself or his fans seriously. Makes for an interesting mix :)

sorry about that big swath of characters. tl;dr i like homestuck.

Thanksgiving was fun! Spent the night at [livejournal.com profile] vanillaklise's place then [livejournal.com profile] shinigamitabris joined us for Thanksgiving which was awesome. We did puzzles and had turkey and played some AssCreed because Kat's brother was playing my copy of Brohood :) We also got a TON of leftovers from Kat's mom which was ridic but awesome.

Christmas was crazy and I spent the night after work sleeping because I was dead tired. Tabs went to a ...I guess cocktail party? haha, it was for people who didn't have families to spend the holiday with, and that were science minded I believe, so she had lots of fun having conversations and being intellectual there XD I, on the other hand, enjoyed sleeping.

New years was great! We spent the night over at Kat's place and watched all three episodes of Sherlock, which were fantastic. We also watched the Space Needle blow up as usual. The music sucked and the fireworks are never really long enough. Their 'space theme' was kinda crap. Kat and Tabs spent the second half of the display discussing Star Trek XD

Yesterday, being the first, we got up and drove up north to the Tsubaki Shrine for our first shrine visit of the year. Kat hadn't been there, so we were excited to take her. Last year there was snow, but this year it wasn't nearly as cold, thankfully. We went through the blessing and also got charms. I got a bracelet, the pink suisyo though it was really hard to choose. I dislike that it emphasizes on love in the description, but I got it for the creativity/artistic aspect :)

After the shrine visit we went shopping and I got sunglasses, which I desperately needed, and the guy who rang me up was very helpful. Tabs got boots and Kat mainly just watched lol ^^;

And I think that's it for now. Feel free to friend me on dw if you wish. I hope it will become more popular so I can read comms like omona and such on here and truly switch over :)
