HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY EVERYONE!
I hope you all have the best one possible! X3 I'm going to be spending mine with my family and watching the Ouran outtakes and playing Silent Hill XDDDD sounds like heaven right now.

Also, I wrote this year's V-Day fic. It's TamaHaru (of course) and it borders on being porny. click here to read it.

Sooooo... I've got my hair bleached for my Maria cosplay:
lol pics )
Now I just have to dye the ends and find the material for the skirt and sew it, and make the choker. I already have all the supplies for the choker and belt and I found the top on sale.
But I need to finish my commissions before I plunge into more cosplay work XD thinking back, I should have done an Eileen cosplay before I did anything to my hair XDDDD I look WAY more like Eileen than Maria. I'm not sexy enough to make a convincing Maria OTL but I love her so much. I'm also gonna cosplay Mary (if I can hide my hair's bleached craziness in a bun) and take pics with my Mary and Maria alter egos side by side, and it might be slightly epic. Ha ha ha, it's sad that I actually have the skirt Mary wears without having to go out and buy it. And I don't even dress like that. Best coincidence ever.

ANNNNNND, the Haruhi and Hunny plushies Becca and Val made me are done:

Uwaaaa, they're so cute X3 the Hunny one is for my friend Sammy, so I hope she'll like it. It's the second part of her Xmas present (I'M SO LATE OTL). Haruhi's dress.... uwaaaa it's different colors than in the actual episode but it's so cute.

AAAAAAND, my Eileen ([livejournal.com profile] mother_reborn) got accepted to [livejournal.com profile] aliunde_rpg and I'm so excited X3

Going to Hobby Lobby today to get some fabric to make the choker/skirt for my Maria (Silent Hill 2) cosplay <3 I'm dyeing my hair for it this week, too. I'll probably post some pics of the finished cosplay soon if anyone wants to see them. I also want to cosplay Ariel DuBois but I can't afford a wig and I don't want to bleach ALL of my hair XD

Also, most of my commission stuff is done with the exception of [livejournal.com profile] stefanie_k's! Sorry Steff, I promise I'll finish it. The ring is just a lot more complicated to make than I expected XDDDD

here's what's left:
Mallory: just have to repair some damage I did to the train necklace and make the ootoro ring
Steff: I don't know XD I keep having to start over on the ring

Also, thanks to the fact that I finished Silent Hill 2 I've had "Promise" stuck in my head for days /: blaaaaaaaah

Also also... will someone please draw me Tamaki with his shirt off if they have the time? XDDD I want some Tama moe art BAD.

Have a good weekend, guys!

So, this weekend was incredible. For serious. SO SO SO incredible. On Friday, I went to Hobby Lobby to get some stuff for commissions and almost everything I needed was on sale <3 then that evening, Brittany and Sammy and I went to the local production of Miss Saigon together, and it was beautiful <3 my old choir teacher (and Brittany and Sammy's current choir teacher) played Ellen, Chris' new wife, and she sounded amazing. She had such emotion in her voice that I cried a little during her big song. Also, Sammy and I went to the musical dressed as boys, and the girl at the next table checked me out. I was pretty convincing as a boy XD and then I accidentally went in the girls' bathroom and got weird looks. Oops. Makes me wonder what real trannies do when they need to pee. Because... well... going in the boys' bathroom is awkward for me, even when it looks like I belong there. It was so much fun 8D I love hanging out with Sammy. I didn't really think about it much before, but I've been friends with her since she was 2 years old. Seriously. And an added bonus is that we never run out of things to talk about, because we always have the same fandoms as each other XD <3

crossdressing pic time XD )

Then, on Saturday I went to lunch at Golden Corral and I got a ton of banana pudding, which is why I like to go there (I also filled an edible taco salad bowl with mashed potatoes, fries, and like 6 kinds of non-taco meat XD), and then we went to Costco (Cosco? I don't know how to spell it). At Costco, this really (super) cute guy was giving out samples of an energy drink/vitamin B12 supplement, and I tried the pink lemonade kind and said it was good, and he smiled charmingly at me and gave me a WHOLE BOTTLE OF IT. FREE. That never happens. Guys never flirt with me... especially stunning ones. But this guy totally flirted with me 8D I felt so good about myself all day, which was nice because I was having one of those bad skin days, so I was feeling bad about myself before.

THEN, on Sunday, we went to the mall and I didn't buy anything XD but in Hot Topic this girl said she liked my bag (it's an Ouran one) and I was like "8D you like Ouran too?" and she was like "YOU like Ouran too?" and her friend came up and was like "OURAN HIGH SCHOOL HOST CLUB?" and then we all screamed together and jumped around and went on about how no one in Billings liked it and it was cool to meet someone else who did <3 it was amazing. I felt like I was among my own kind XD also, while at the mall, I was talking about this bomber jacket that I want to buy (it's $40, which is like the equivalent of a $1,000,000,000 by my standards), and my dad gave me $20 toward it... without me even asking. It was so nice.

THEN ON MONDAY, which still counted as the weekend because Brittany had the day off from school, we sat around playing Sims 2 all day until later when we bleached our hair together <3 she's doing pink and blue streaks underneath like Katy Perry and I'm doing pink on the ends like Maria from Silent Hill 2 <3 it's going to be so awesome! Right now I still have the blonde ends but tomorrow I'm doing the pink. I'll post pics when I get it done... and some cosplay pics. Brittany has a jacket like the one James wears, and I have the boots and skirt (well, it's a shirt but I can make it look like it's a skirt XD) to be Maria, so we're going to take some funny pics. We also have a TamaHaru photoshoot planned. Not the cute kind, though XD she's going to be Tamaki and we're taking pictures of her holding a broken wine glass up to my neck.

So, this weekend was INCREDIBLE. I feel like I can take on the world.
I'll be working on commissions this week, so those of you who have one coming, it should be ready soon. I'm not setting a date, though, because I don't want to rush the pieces to meet a deadline. I want them to be beautiful.
grape_soda: (Haruhi)
So, you guys know how I've been saying I was going to do a Haruhi cosplay for ages? Well... I finally did one that I remembered to take pics of. Sadly enough, it's not in the uniform, but the outfit from "Kyouya's Reluctant Day Out" since it's my favorite Haruhi outfit XD

I 'shopped my eyes to make them brown (I have no idea what color my eyes would actually be called because they change so much, but it's not brown) for authenticity, but I was too silly to remember to 'shop the undershirt to make it black ^^; Anyway, who cares?

EDIT: Please ignore the awkward cleavage shot in the first picture ^^; it didn't even occur to me until now, and there's not much I can do about it. I'm sorry -_-

pics behind the cut )

I had a TON of fun with this XD I took some pictures posing with the giant bear, but they didn't turn out ;_; Haruhi is was more fun to cosplay than she should be (I went to the corn maze dressed as her this year with my friends and had a blast). I like cosplaying Tamaki, too, but with my height and face and scrawny body, I can't really pull him off XDDDDDD
