My brain doesn't function right half the time, and when it does it tends to spout out "common sense"-ical inspirational stuff. Way past the point of knowing what I want to do in life. Tends to make bracelets and earrings and stuff like that, and cosplay is also a common thing on here. May also dabble in making desktop stuff, like icons and wallpaper and stuff like that.

Have I mentioned that I have an extremely overactive imagination? No? WELL THEN.

Favourite genre of music: Transcends pop, rock, dance, electronic, and much more than that. NOW INCLUDING: Musical stuff
Favourite style of art: ... Anything?
MP3 player of choice: iPod Touch
Favourite cartoon character: I don't know anymore.
Personal Quote: "I make potatoes look attractive."

If you were able to peek into my early fandom times, you'd see I wasn't one for writing fanfics. The closest I got was writing a story for my English class that had pretty obvious references to Ouran High School Host Club. (Pretty sure it was a story about a haunted house... /inward groaning/)

Of course, certain fandoms moved me differently. The Mermaid Melody fandom moved me towards cosplay. The Ace Attorney fandom moved me towards role-playing. (I like to think I did pretty good RP-ing as Ron Delite, but not everyone thinks that.) The Mega Man fandom drew me towards community interactions. It wasn't until getting into the Starlight Express fandom that I was pushed far enough to actually write my first fanfic. (Chain of command goes: cosplay > RP > community interactions > fanfics. If I get to fanfic, I'm apparently too far into the rabbit hole to get out.) It started simple enough; me and a fellow RP-er were talking in PMs about different headcanons, which ended up in hearing something that would've sounded interesting in a story setting, and then the rest is history. I'm now two fics into this shit, and currently working on two more. And I'm sure there's more on the way...

... Except now I kinda have an idea for a non-fanfic story. I ended up reading about the old Choose Your Own Adventures books (and about two Choose Your Own Nightmare books as well, because those existed and I still want to read them like I still want to read Goosebumps books), and I had a dream involving a boy with a penpal who gets in trouble with someone and is sent to a boarding school where things go right ahead and take a turn for the worse, while his penpal tries to find him. (It's also one of those dreams where if you've been thinking about someone *a lot*, they appear *in that dream*. /cringes/) Because of all that, I want to write it into a story, but I'm not entirely sure I have that much desire to write what would eventually become a long-ass storyline. (I can fanfic just fine, but occasionally my stupidity shows in horrible ways.) I still have those other two fics to work on, but it's just a feeling that I really, really WANT to do the thing, but I don't know if I SHOULD...

Also, thinking about serious things to do in fanfics is hard if you keep imagining everything happening to/with certain people, and you either start laughing too hard or you get way too embarrassed..

:iconreaction2plz: So I tried to promise myself I wouldn't make anymore edits on images like all the Rockman ones I did. But uh....

Well, I didn't keep that promise. Starlight brings out the best of my creativity, but it also brings out the worst. And the... uh..... less-than-desireable.

This is basically reason #1 as to why I should not have GIMP in my possession. Reason #2 involved an earlier attempt to combine another Starlight picture with :icondisapprovalplz: .Someone just take the damn thing away from me.

That'd be great.

Instead all I have is shitty screencaps, "collages" made with the Mac Preview thing, and other shitty edits.

And a few cosplay things.

Lucia's 'Shell' bra - Mermaid Melody by Squeaker-Ed
Lucia's 'Shell' bra - Mermaid Melody
LAST ONE YAY. Clearly today has been a more productive day than I intended it to be. Though... it was supposed to be more productive in a different sense, but EITHERWAY. I GOT SHIT DONE.

This is Lucia's shell bra, for her mermaid form. Now obviously, it has the same level of craftsmanship than the other things do (mind you, I'm handsewing all my shit, dawgz), but the thing I try to strive for is some sense of basic accuracy while hopefully maintaining sturdiness at my level of skill. (Coming from someone who made a bike out of paper clips and other assorted shit, I still don't know that level yet.) But basically I tried to make something that would 1) cover my tits, 2) stay on my tits, 3) match the rest of my costume (that I've yet to make (oops?), and 4) hold up against the gravitational forces that pulls tits down. I haven't worn it long enough to test how it holds up during a full "con day" (or one "cosplay period"), but it's managed to do relatively well given that I don't try and run or do anything terribly active.

Made during the same time as the ePitch, it's made out of (guess what) more scrap fabric, an old bra, one bead, and red ribbon. With the length that the ribbon is at, it's a two-person job to get it tied in a double knot (optimal tie-bra closure method), and would be much wiser to wear it with a bandeau bra or some skintight underwear thing. I have an idea concering the whole of the mermaid-Lucia cosplay that I'd like to try, so I may end up tweaking it a bit.

Full post on the shell bra here on my Tumblr. Don't expect any nip-slips tho, because NAH SON/DAUGHTA I DON'T ROLL THAT WAY.

Lucia's e-Pitch - Mermaid Melody by Squeaker-Ed
Lucia's e-Pitch - Mermaid Melody
POST ALL THE MM COSPLAY THINGS /flails/ Figured I might as well keep going since I'm bored elsewhere.

This here is Lucia's microphone (known toy-wise as the e-Pitch) from Mermaid Melody. Now I know what you're half-thinking: "WHY DOES IT LOOK SO LUMPY AND SHITTY IT'S SUPPOSED TO BE SHINY AND SMOOTH AND ROCK HARD LIKE MY ANIME HUSBANDOS ABS". Here's a reason why; I don't have access to craft plastic for this stuff. As evidenced by the shell pendant I posted earlier, I have a lot of smaller materials and scrap fabric to use. Because I have this and not the good stuff, I tend to adopt a "one man's trash is another man's treasure" approach, otherwise known as being a cheap-ass with no money and lots of time on my hands. So, created in maybe spring 2013, I ended up with this and Lucia's "shell bra", which I will post later. It's made as a plushie-type thing because frankly soft things are better than hard things, with two kinds of scrap fabric and little plastic shell beads and pillow stuffing.

The thing about this prop was that I had an idea to make it play sound; owning both an iPod Shuffle (that still works) and a Boom Cube (mad sounds from hell on a keychain), I got the idea to stick the iPod in the front of the microphone (it's a pocket) and thread the cord of the Boom Cube through the microphone and stick the speaker in the base of the handle. That would've worked pretty well (and I did a video on Tumblr that tested it), but in the end I decided that it'd be better to just have it be a simple plushie I can lob around without something hard in it.

Full post on this ePitch is here on my Tumblr. Post on how the ePitch would've worked with the iPod Shuffle/Boom Cube idea is also on Tumblr.

Now I'm not sure if you got my message or not so I'm taking precautions.
If you didn't, this will be awkward. >>
