It was wonderful to see :icontinysaucepan:,:iconmorayah: & :iconoh-mrs-o: again and Yaay to finally meeting :icontinypasserine:

Well it was my second time to eirtakon and I hate to say it but I kinda preferred my first time to Eirtakon. Only good things at this con for me was meeting Courtoon and Missyeru, Caitlin Glass, Chuck Huber and the Miku Concert Finale. To add seeing old friends as well :) I dunno why but there was more walking around and it limits time spent with friends. I really missed that and therefore didn't manage to take many photos as I had hoped.
To summarize down this journal I put a pro and con list.

PROS
  • Meeting old friends.
  • Meeting Courtoon & Missyeru
  • MIKU concert was EPIC
  • Meeting Caitlin Glass & Chuck Huber. I never knew Chuck was so dam hilarious! 
  • Wide variation in traders hall and artist alley.
  • People are so friendly.
  • Food at the con was reasonable priced and there were stalls that was selling food.
  • Had fun cosplaying during the weekend.
  • Information Desk was extremely helpful.
  • Buzzing atmosphere


CONS

  • Trade Hall and Artist Alley was too far from entrance
  • The convention was absolutely HOT! There wasn't much air conditioning. I was literally sweating a good bit of the time! There was like two people who fainted because of how hot it was.
  • Being short is NOT helpful when ya in trade hall at at a stall. The crowds at one table is unbelievable.
  • Came across the one odd person or two that was rude.
  • Didn't get anyone asking for my photo when in cosplay. *didn't bother me as much but still*
  • Due to running around I hardly get much time to actually eat properly.
  • The queues to something keep getting larger.
  • Time was limited to spend with my friends :(
  • Needs a variation of events
  • It was hard to distinguish professional photographers from regular attendees.
  • The cloakroom line was HUGE! 
  • Events were so apart and clash.
  • Signings were in a tiny room and limitations was introduced on the first day. Quite shocking because me and a friend were interviewing a cosplay guest and we were delayed. Went down to lineup and was told we had to go away because there was a cut off point. Totally inexcusable! Many people were turned away because of this.
  • Had asked one of Eirta volunteers/staff where a place was and they had not a single clue.
  • Wig cap for my cosplay nearly cut circulation to my head. In other words it was too tight.


Ok there was more cons than pros so my bad. Once i compared first time at eirta to second it made first time a tiny bit better.
After getting soaked the Friday I managed to come down with a bad head cold or the flu. I was fine all weekend but today I wasn't feeling well.

So the one downside was the fact me and my friend went back to hostel. The two guys we shared the room with were so noisy. They went to the whiskey tasting event and when they came into the room they made so much noise! Really con should have some side regulations for that event in the near future! The lest ya want is someone come back into room tipsy and making noise when someone who happens to be ill is sleeping!

So that's my honest opinion about the convention. It's on a maybe pile to go to again.

This journal may be updated when I think of something else...


Sometimes I wonder that if I didn't work so hard just maybe I might get further up in life than be stuck in limbo where I am now.

Why think this all of a sudden?


Quite simple, All my life I have been alone. Not once did I ask for help. Maybe a little but that is aside the point. I worked my ass off and put so much effort and soul into what I do. Where did it get me? Nowhere, just a fail in college as I wait behind and watch those that cheat even a little graduate with high honors or at least a proper degree. They may say Oh but I worked so hard to get where I am. Well in truth they didn't. It's all a lie to cover themselves up. They don't know what REAL hard work is. How the fact you persevere through the toughest of times. All that depression, all that pain and sweat, all the effort and soul put into something that is quite up to standard. It hit me as I realized that some of my classmates had literally helped each other and cheated on a assignment that rocketed them to a high final grade while I did as what i normally do is honestly worked hard and only got an average final grade. It makes me sick to my stomach that this is how life is now. The fact that in college working your hardest and best is not near enough to get a high grade.

Look at me I'm ranting to high heavens. Well that's the jist folks.

So.... Tell me what you think? Did something like this ever happen to you? Did you ever think that working hard wasn't enough anymore....

OTHER NEWS....

Well Eirtakon is next month! I've already ordered my Saya costume but the one thing that is missing is her Katana. I am tempted to make one but afraid I'd mess up.

Why did you decide to cosplay?

Many might ask this question. I had hesitated before while seen such amazing costumes. I was like I wanna join in too. I may have only started and heaps to learn but I only do it for fun. To be someone else for a day or even weekend. My life is extremely dull and I don't have many friends. Hardly many to even talk to on a regular basis. The cosplay community has both a dark and light side to it. I've noticed many things too.

Like the fact many people assume you have to either look like a character or literally be the same shape as that character. Yes many think that a person who isn't slim can't pull off a character as well as someone that is slim. Now I aint a slim person either myself but don't attend to go on those outrageous diets to be slim because that really isn't me. Besides it's not easy since I have a curvy figure. Yes I call it curvy mainly on the basis that I aint exactly over weight or fat.

So back to topic... There is alot of hate but there isn't anything stopping a person being the character they love. It doesn't matter if they are fat, slim, overweight, male, female, a different colour or race.... as long you are having fun and that's all that matters.

I have seen one thing though and it's more common at larger conventions is some cosplayers mainly female experience some awkward moments. These might be the fact of being harassed. It's shocking this happens. It really hasn't happened to me as of yet. Unless you count this guy rubbing my leg (that was a brief moment so I couldn't do much) All I said was Do you mind! But if it was a longer moment I might have twisted his wrist. LOL It's kinda a skill I have and like most. MY reflexes have improved when I learn a martial art.

So Well enough of my ranting coz this journal can be quite lengthy. So tell me what ya think?
I'm running outta titles for journals haha.

Well here goes. Many might ask what have I been up to lately. Well I can say it has been a complete nightmare of a roller coaster journey the few weeks that's for sure. One hiccup as well that ran me into a severe depression. I'm fine now but still have times where I often cry myself to sleep as well. I'm not kidding folks it has been that bad.

As for my degree well it's a battle on it's own scale. Ever worked so hard and so much that when you get that dreaded result that says fail? Yeah... Well that's it the second time to boot. It's not exactly as considered as of yet a total true fail because I have written a letter to head of college requesting that my GPA is kept and i submit on first sitting! That means I can come out with a decent degree and that means I won't have to say I repeated. The reason for this is on multiple grounds. It's bad enough my classmates and year are bragging on facebook to point where it yells rub it in your face. Not kidding! I mean if you are 6 years in a college, been harassed by a 32 year old, a slow learner, see previous groups ya made friends with graduate where you left behind then ya will understand my statement.

One a positive light I've been slowly getting my life back. The entire summer and year was consumed by college. It tends to do that to you if ya there for too long. So I'm back to karate but need to shake off the rusty and get back to how things used to be.
I'm considering to cosplay more and going to Eirtakon next month. Yup I said it! Then there is the fact of back to reading books, playing games, need to exercise more and then I've thought to go back to sketching and painting again. Might need to get back to basics as I learn but other than that it's a start.

Then my mother is finally getting her health back in track. It has been a toll to me when in college because well if ya got a family member who suffers health wise then ya put health before studies any day. I'm so glad after all these years she will be healthy and no longer in pain.


So uh I guess that's all I've to say at the moment.
:icontinysaucepan:,:iconmorayah:,:icondustbunny-studios:, :iconchaobreeder16:  & :iconoh-mrs-o: It was great to see you guys again.

Well it was good fun but I'd have to admit last year was uh a tiny bit better. I can't wait till next year and will give plenty of feedback.
Spent majority of my time with friends and in traders hall. There was one table there which was a trader which was a tad on the pricy side on things. I did get a ryo-oki plushie from that trader however but that's coz she's so hard to find on the interweb.

Unlike last year the fire alarm went off more than once and it was super annoying. Then there is the case of leaking everywhere and the Maid Cafe had to be shut down. For a hotel that's 4 star that is incredibly shocking! It's no joke. Last year none of that really happened as much and if it did I might not have been there. The lines were super HUGE! I'm not kidding. They had to turn away some people at end of line like the first two days. I was shocked. There was this one woman who waited like 5 hours over the two days and was annoyed on the Sunday because the line barely moved. That and the guests were late arriving. On third day even some fans had to be turned away. I find that shocking.

I bought most stuff from artists of course. Love you guys! I am tempted but i am not near as good at art as I used to be. Doubt people would buy from me any ways.
I met so many old faces about and including new faces. I even cosplayed for the first time. It was really fun and people complimented my costume. It was a great feeling to hear someone say "I love your costume" I'd never get used to people taking my photo though because I dunno what poses to pull. I hardly took many photos and wish I had taken more. The lighting was terrible and I was surprised by that. There was this one guy who took my photo and it freaked me out. How you ask well... After we looked at the photo we were freaked out. Thought it was cool. What we saw was incredible. It was a human girl that looks like a ghost. When we looked at the same place no-one was there. I asked the guy and he said he didn't see anything when taking the photo.

Coming home was something though. The train was incredibly packed! They had to cancel the first two trains because it was super packed! I'm looking forward to going to Eirtakon because Caitlin Glass will be there. She voiced Winry from FMA.

Now to crawl back into project and spend endless hours completing it. I hope I get it all done on time. I guess I'd have to do up storyboard and just follow it bit by bit. That way I'm sure I'd get it all done on time. Wish me luck folks I'm gonna need it. All that's left is animate characters, lip synch, tie up loose ends and finally render out. I don't really care as much now. I just want to get it done and dusted.

Cabin 1 Background
This is one of 3 or 4 pics that will be for Scene 2 of my animation. Even when i had used a reference I still drew this from scratch! It really took me like 3 hours to get right coz been ages since i properly did an animation or even drawn in flash using drawing tablet.

I think it looks perfect and doesn't need any shading!

So whatcha ya all think?
Also the rough edging as you can see would be excluded from final product so don't say it has jagged or not straight edges coz as animators know what is outside of canvas never appears when rendering out the animation.

About me

Personality: Easy going, Independent, Strong willed, Determined, Creative, Understanding, Good listener and Loyal.
Hair: Brown
Likes: Making New friends, Sketching, Writing, Graphic Design, Filming, Photography, Music, Karate.
Dislikes: Onions, Cocky people, Insensitive Jerks, People who bash due to not understanding, fake friends.
Background: Well clearly i was bullied, harassed and put down several times in my life. There were moments in my life where i just wanted everything to end. I can get quite depressed when I'm betrayed. People must be careful what they say because it causes me to go into deep thought and sometimes cause me to worry. It has made my mind and soul stronger than anyone believes. I'm a varied artist. That means i'd try out anything that expresses my creativity. I'm attracted to fine detail. I'm a complex person in many ways. Not many people understand especially when i open my mouth. I've got a weird sense of humor and joke alot. Usually when i joke it can be taken seriously but those that know me definitely know the way i think. Once a friendship is ended i usually go into "Who are you?" mode. In other words I act as if you are a total stranger. It's my way of moving on in life. I've had a harsh background and always been alone. I also love languages and foreign culture. I have a strange fascination with aged old trees.
