Yay for more cosplay updates!

All right lots to say lets see how much I can get out before I forget everything I was going to say... First, a new con added to the usual lineup.  OMGCon.  Its in Paducah, which for me isn't that far away.  I've wanted to attend for about three years now but something kept getting in the way.  (Yes Rob I'm still upset you had to pick THAT WEEKEND to get married. :p) But I have mine and the new b/f (yes, yes we'll get to him in a bit) badges bought.  So no skipping out this year.  Its June 11-13 for anyone interested, and if you get on it quick badges are $25 till Dec 31st.
Next on the agenda, the costume list for Kawa Kon has been revised.  Remember how I said I was just going to do two costumes?  I lied.  -_-" No I didn't lie, I was talking to someone on the forum and they are doing an Alucard costume and it just so happens that I'd already be attending with a Pip, then they told me that they had an Integra so it only seemed natural to be Seras.  Anyone shocked?  No I didn't think so.  I'm planning on going with the yellow costume, and keeping it very close to the manga.  Meaning black and white patches.  What's that you say?  Black and white?  Yes if you look at the front cover of the second issue you'll notice Seras's patches are black and white and not in color as seen in the ova.

Picky detail I know but I wouldn't be me if I didn't worry over such things.  Currently I'm hunting for said patches.  I'm not having much luck, most places that will take custom orders require a minimum order and as between Pip and I we will be needing a max of 5 or 6 that doesn't work.  Hopefully someone on etsy will be willing to make some for me.  Dunno if I'll be making the Harkonnen, at least in time for the con.  Unfortunately I have a lot of work to do with Sailor V and Kusanagi, so it will depend.  I do want to have it for photos though.  And am I the only one who hears Harkonnen and doesn't think Seras but I think House Harkonnen i.e. Dune?  I read (most) of the series years ago and loved it but in my world Harkonnen=bad.  I know I'm crazy.  But as for the creation of the costume itself I think I have it pretty much mapped out.  Some stretch twill for the uniform, I'll be able to reuse Kusanagi's boots for this costume and her and Sailor V's contacts (red and blue respectively) which will make for some neat pics.  I think I'm going to go with white gloves a la the cover I posted above.  I know a lot of Seras cosplays I've found on Cosplay.com have gone with brown boots and brown gloves with a black belt.  Unfortunately I have this issue with black and brown being on at the same time so therefore I have to do black or the fashion ninja's will get me >.>  <.< 
Thankfully the cost of Seras's wig won't be up there with Kusanagi's or Sailor V's.  A very nice lady on cosplay.com who has already done a Seras cosplay was nice enough to respond and tell me where she got hers and what she did to modify it. 

You can find her on Cosplay.com under the s/n DestiniteLuna. But not to nitpick but you can see see did the brown gloves, which is correct if you do the OVA Seras, but I'm (as always) being different and doing the manga.  You'll also notice her Pip is in green, mine will be in khaki.  Why?  Hell if I know.  He saw some picture of Pip a year or two ago when he made the costume in brown and loved it.  It worked on him first time, I'll just need to find him the scarf and a few other minor things for this time.
But while I'm on the subject of Seras and Pip I ran across a couple rather racy pictures of the duo someone did (I can't find credits).  Dunno if we'll post them but you can bet we'll probably do our own variants of these:

And how are we going to do these semi racy photos?  Well ladies and gentlemen you'll be happy to know that we're investing in a new SLR.  A Sony 330 to be precise.  We're picking it up Thursday.  Sadly I don't think we'll have any fun lenses before the con, maybe a filter depending on price.  But they will be coming.  Splitting the cost of it made it a lot more reasonable for both of us.  And my bff has one as well that we can use if we need a second camera (why we'd need a dual camera shoot is beyond me but I'm just the stupid model he's the photographer).  And yes that's pretty much how it will be.  I don't mean to be egotistical but expect to see a LOT of  me and very few of him unless he has a mask on or is facing away from the camera.  For whatever reason he's mega shy about cameras.  /shrug
But as I'm thinking about variant costumes, have I prattled on endlessly about my Sailor V Artemis Variant?  No?  Hope your seated, this will take awhile.  The costume idea started when I was telling ... how should I refer to him... my photographer?  No.  My b/f?  No, even though he is.  Pip?  Meh its short, it'll do.  It all started when I was telling Pip about the plushie I commissioned for my Sailor V costume.  He loved the idea of doing some pictures with the plush then we started acting ... like ourselves and came up with this shoot I cannot wait to do.  Ok you all know the whole Family Guy Peter vs the Chicken thing?  Yea, same idea.  V vs Artemis.  Me 'fighting' a stuffed animal.  Figure first time V will win and he'll have to continue being the sidekick, but what if he won?  And had his own Sailor fuku?  Well then V would just have to be the kitty... Ok so imagine this

Only in white plus ears and a cat tail.  Expect to have a good laugh once we're done.  I'll post more details about the Sailor V Variant later have other things on my mind.
I finally, FINALLY got to dye my fabric for Kusanagi tonight.  I'm testing out a satin.  I plan on using the dull side for the costume but I can't find any satin in my hometown in a pale purple like hers so I bought a white and some purple RIT dye and went to work.  The first piece I used came out way to dark which was a major shock because about two years ago when I was making my Nariko costume I had to dye some satin to be the shade I needed and for the life of me I couldn't get that stuff to take color.  I ended up just having to setting for a paler color then what I wanted.  So knowing that I made it at full strength, and left the fabric in the dye bath maybe two minutes, pulled it out and rinsed it just out of curiosity.  The stuff was way to dark to salvage.  Before I gave the next piece a try I dumped about half of the dye out and refilled the pot with water so it was at about 50% strength.  This time I dipped it for maybe 30 seconds before I pulled it out and rinsed it.  It matched the thread I bought which is a very, very pale purple.  Which is what I'm going for.  I hope it dries that way.  See my idea is when I'm wearing the 1st gig outfit (the bikini bottoms and thigh highs) for the top to be questionable if its white or purple, but if I'm in the 2nd gig outfit (the white jeans) then it will be obvious that it is a very light purple.  So cross your fingers that it dies even and the color I need.  Otherwise I just wasted 3 yards of satin and a box of dye on nothing. :/
Alright on to the thing that most of your probably suspected from the last post but wasn't confirmed.  No I'm no longer single, but no I'm not telling you his name.  We'll just call him 'Pip' and be done with it.  Yes for those inquiring minds I'm extremely happy and finally able to gush this as we will probably still have ex-bf problems for awhile.  Hopefully he will get it that I'm done with him before the local con so we can hang out again this year.  I feel kinda bad I didn't mean to break it off with him the way I did, but I was unhappy and frustrated and didn't see things changing.  I felt it was better to nip it in the bud, besides he started the whole 'where are you and who are you with' type line of questioning and the only person who can ask that is my mother and she doesn't even do that.  That and he asked for me to 'think long and hard on if I wanted to be with him' I think he expected me to say yes so it was a major blow to his ego when I didn't.  But as for what happened with Pip, it was a total accident.  Just kinda happened, and although I'm extremely happy about it a certain part of me has reservations about it, I'm afraid of something going wrong and loosing a friend that means the absolute world to me.  (And no I'm not talking him up or exaggerating, we went 3 months without talking once and I was about to loose my mind I missed him that much.)
But one last thing and I think I'll have caught everyone up.  Christmas presents.  I got many, which was unusual, last few years have been... blah.  A Kohl's gift card and some amazingly warm socks from the paternal grandmother, a beautiful vase and a Hancocks fabrics gift card from Dad, a pre-paid gym membership from Mom (I may just be in Kusanagi shape yet!) and some money toward the white leather jacket (which was the only thing I asked for).  An XM radio from one of my jobs which in turn was a present from my grandmother because she didn't have anything for me under the tree so she gave me some money for it even though my boss gave it to me as my bonus o.O yea that was a twisted one.  $100 from the grandparents as well, $50 from the aunt and uncle (all of which is going toward the SLR), a funny little outdoor spinny decoration from my cousin (I'll post a pic when we get the new camera, it'll be something to take a picture of) And a kickass mug from Pip, with a quote from Alice and Wonderland "Somebody's head is going to ROLL for this!" Anyone who knows me knows how true that is in the morning.  And the very best present of all...

Everyone, let me introduce you to the newest member of my family, Lucky.  My parents found him when they were leaving my Grandparents Christmas day, he was running in the field covered in ice from some of the cows, which apparently thought he was a towel wearing terrorist.  And as soon as I set eyes on the lil guy he was adopted.  He also is going to be my Hellhound for my Seras cosplay.  Oh yea, double duty.  But in all seriousness he's the cutest and sweetest puppy I've been around since Rex was born.

Con Update

Well I have registered for KawaKon '10.  Got it in early enough that the cost was almost half last years ticket.  Which is fantastic cause this year we'll be staying in the hotel rather then at a friends house.  That in itself makes me happy last year I was tired and wanted to crash not navigate us back, even if it was a gorgeous house that we had to ourselves.  That and the other perk is who I will be going with.  As of the moment its only the two of us but at least I won't feel like I'm dragging him along.  Yay for being single ... err well sort of.  Yay for being done with bad news and possibly on to better things? 
But on to the heart and soul of this post, what I'm wearing to said con.
Only two this year, well two that I will be trucking around the whole day in, I'm trying something new.  Instead of three costumes, one for each day, I'm going to make a couple costumes more for special events, ie the Rave or going swimming.  So here's the current lineup:
Friday- Motoko Kusanagi from Ghost in the Shell SAC.  I'm wearing the 1st GIG costume sans the motorcycle jacket but getting a pair of white jeans and the jacket from 2nd GIG so I can change it up, and not freeze my perfectly shaped ass off.  (Can you tell that when I got rid of him I got my ego back?)
Saturday- Codename Sailor V.  No not Sailor Venus.  Well it is, but its pre-Sailor Moon.  Bit of trivia here, Sailor Moon was not the first scout, acutally she wasn't even the first one created.  Originally it was just Sailor V.  You remember the game she always went on and on about in the anime?  Or the outfit Sailor V wore the first time they saw her, with the red mask?  Yea that outfit.  I'm totally psyched about this one too almost more the my Kusanagi just because I get someone else to cosplay with, from the same series.  No I don't have another Sailor Scout, I gots myself Tuxedo Mask.  Of course we're still trying to figure out how Sailor V got Sailor Moon's man but meh, it was before Sailor Moon's time right? 
Sunday- Kusanagi again.  Since I can do the pants I can kinda make two costumes out of this one.  Though chances are I'll wear it the same both days cause I'm like that.
Now as for the other two costumes, the Rave and Swimming, let me explain a little about those.  For the rave you always see girls do the neko thing.  And cool and fun as it is, its a little old.  Ok like really old.  I see a multitude of girls in black outfits with cat ears and tails.  -_-" Fail.  So as I can do better, I opted to be a fox.  Oh no I'm not going to wear all black, hell at this point I only have a vague idea of what I want to wear to the Rave save the tail and ears... no that's not an option.  Ok as for the other.  Raise your hand if you've played DOA?  Yes yes everyone.  So you all can officially shut up now, I'm breaking down and doing a Kasumi costume.  And not just her little blue number oh, no.  I want more then that, try the swimsuit.  No not the black that she wore in DOA Extreme (didnt think I knew that did ya?) this is meant to go with the blue and white she normally wears.  Now this isn't going to be made with my omg that's not 100% accurate ocd.  Or hopefully it won't be.  I'm making more from my curiousity of putting a redhead in a blue and white kimono-ish outfit and see how many times someone things I'm Kasumi.  Then tell them I'm not.  Yes I have a twisted sense of humor.  ... shit customers inbound I'll post more later.

Calling Anyone Who's Good At Spoofing Songs!

Since I downloaded FRAPS I've been dying to make a couple WoW vids of my own showcasing my beloved hunter. And somehow I've gotten it in my head that she needs to spoof Battlefield by Jordin Sparks. Yes I know odd choice, but battlefield and battleground are very interchangeable. So here's a youtube vid of her song with lyrics and posted below are the lyrics I've managed to come up with so far. The stuff in red is what I lack. Any suggestions or ideas would be welcome. 

Don’t ask me to join your group
I know your premade’s bad
One minute till start
And suddenly it will just fall apart

One word turns into a
Why is it the smallest things that tear us down
My world's nothing when you don't
I'm standing here and he’s got a sheild
Can't go back now

Both hands tied behind my back with nothing
Oh no, these times when we climb so fast to fall again
Why we gotta fall for it now
I’m getting tired of this war
You know I really meant to hurt you
And they don’t even know what we’re fighting for

Why does the Horde always win the Battleground?  The Battlegrounds, the Battleground? (x2)
Why does the Horde always win?

We should just dps him down,
And then we can just steal his flag, mhmm
If we can't surrender then we both gonna loose what we have, oh no

Both hands tied behind my back with nothing
Oh no, these times when we climb so fast to fall again
I don't wanna fall for it now

I’m getting tired of this war
You know I really meant to hurt you
And they don't even know what we're fighting for

Why does the Horde always win in the Battleground?  The Battlegrounds, the Battleground? (x2)

I guess you better go and get your armor, (get your armor) get your armor
I guess you better go and get your armor, (get your armor) get your armor
I guess you better go and get your...

We could pretend you had Ulduar gear (oh-oh-oh)
And even if you did we still wouldn’t be alright
Cause baby you just don’t know this fight
And the Alliance still can’t PVP..

The battleground, The Battleground, The Battleground,
Why do the Horde always win at the Battleground, the Battleground, the Battleground?

I guess you better go back to your raid...

I picked this server for the war
You know I really meant to hurt you
And you don’t even know what we’re fighting for (fighting, fighting for)

Why does the Horde always win the Battleground, the Battleground, the Battleground? (x2)

I guess you better go and get your armor, (get your tier gear) get your armor
I guess you better go and get your armor, (get your tier gear) get your armor

Why does the Horde always win...
Why does the Horde always win...
The Battleground, the Battleground..

I always meant
to start a war
And I know
What I’m fighting for

I always meant
to start a war
And I know
What I’m fighting for

First off I have to share this amazing violinist I found on youtube, and if all goes well hopefully I will be able to see him play next week Wed. First one is his interpration of a classic piece (one of my favorites) the second one gives me the chills, and the third is his cover of AC/DC's Thunderstruck. Yea, you read that right. He has so many that are excellent it was hard for me to pick just these few.

And not only is he talented he's not bad on the eyes. ^_^

Ok, I said I had pretties, and well if you've followed my other blog you know how I like to put teasers of any fanfiction I'm starting on here. (I'm a stats whore, I know.) But I'm just getting this started so let me know what you think.
Its set a few years after the end of the Batman Beyond series... I don't think I'm going to give you much more background then that. As always i'm implying no ownership of the DC's characters, original characters and plot are mine however, please ask my permission to repost or use either. Thank you!

It was fall in Gotham and that meant one thing. Foul weather. Lighting crackled across the heavens illuminating the skyline like fireworks. Ice water fell from the brooding sky in torrents, soaking everything and chilling anyone stupid enough to be outside to the bone. The drop in temperature had come early this year, daytime highs were in the sixties and nighttime lows were bordering on freezing. And then their was the unending rain. Gutters ran over, roads and small streams flooded. People wondered why the flood drains were so deep; it was solely for this time of year. This frozen hell was the kind of weather that made even the criminals stay in their holes. It was the kind of night Terry would have loved.
Would have. Back when the suit was new to him he would have relished the chance to ‘play’. New had been five years ago, he had long since learned the limits of his suit. Of course it also would have meant a short night for the Gothamite, and maybe the chance to see Dana. Not anymore. All it meant now was that he was going to spend his Saturday night listening in on the police frequencies and having to hear old man Wayne snore over the com. He gave a slight huff, and began contemplating how low it would take for the Batmobile to ice over. For a man of Bruce’s age he was in amazing shape, and he could still best Terry anytime he wished, but on slow nights like this, his age tended to get the better of him. Not that Terry didn’t have the same idea, and come three-thirty or four and all was well, he was going to retire early. But when you were Batman, things rarely went according to plan.
If it was because of the weather or act of Providence, at presciently four in the morning Terry found himself parking in the Batcave. Bruce was still dead to the world, Ace sat by his side silently guarding his aged master. The monotone drabble of the city’s finest kepting them both company.
“I’m back Mr. Wayne.” He stirred in his chair. The light from the monitors cast an eerie glow on the main control room. Apparently Bruce had fallen asleep earlier then Terry remembered, or maybe he was trying to save power by keeping the lights off. “I’m heading to my room to get some shut eye. I’m supposed to meet my Mom for lunch tomorrow.” Bruce gave an approving nod. “I figure I’ll be back early in the afternoon, did you get the chance to look at that essay for my lit class?” College had been the next logical step after high school, and with a recommendation from Bruce Wayne himself, and a free ride from him too, how could he say no? Never mind he got his own private tutor who could probably school any of his teachers on any subject.
“Yes I made a few corrections; I’ll go over it with you when you get back in.” The twenty-three year old nodded. He was a little older than his classmates, he was on the six year plan as he called it. But while the hours of high school he hadn’t been able to work around, college had worked well with his nighttime occupation. And if anyone asked, he always could say that he spend most of his time helping Mr. Wayne and couldn’t very well take a full load of classes and do that.

The ancient tome had come at a quarter the price she had expected to pay at the auction. The people with money seemed for focused on buying ‘relics’ and rubble then something of any value. Of course to them the book was useless. Time had done its worst on the small leather bound volume. The cover was cut and distressed hardly recognizable as leather, the pages it contained were nearly coming out of the binding, and the ink had nearly faded to the point it was debatable if the book had ever held any information. The entire manuscript had been severely damaged by water, but for someone of her particular talent, it was completely salvageable.
The winner of the auction, a young dark haired thing, put the item into a simple backpack and headed for the auction house door. The bag clashed horribly with her outfit. The auction had been a black tie affair, and her dress had been suitable but the bag was out of place for something so upscale. Most of the other guests were enjoying the gala in the main auditorium, she had opted to get to work restoring the book as soon as she could and forgo the merrymaking. A car was quickly called for her by one of the doormen and she slid into the back of the nondescript black car.

One last thing

One more and I'll shut up... for a little bit. I finally figured out what my palidan is doing wrong. I should jump up and down more... specifically on shit I just owned.

Couple new trailers.

When I saw Zombieland, I saw this trailer, I'll be sure to report as soon as its out. And btw its Michael, give him a sword and you all are fucked. And one other thing, they forgot to double tap the old lady.

When searhing for that last trailer I found this one, I hadn't seen anything else on it, but it does look interesting. We all know my fixation with vampyrs, and real ones none of that Twilight bullshit.

And this, listen to the noise they make, it makes me think of 30 Days of Night (which was a neat and almost scary comic).

While I was hunting for the one before this (noticing a trend here?) I found this. I've never seen a movie made of this book which is sad and good. I don't know if anyone can properly pull off and Oscar Wilde but at the same time I love the book and I love how they portrayed him in The League of Extraordinary Gentleman. The actor playing (presumably) Dorian is the same one who's Caspian in The Chronicles of Narnia.

Lions, Tigers, Zombies, Oh YEA!

Went to see this with my brother Sat, and omg. Does laughing so hard a was crying and at one point nearly falling out of my seat give you any idea? Of course we spent about 1/2 of the movie going O.O that's us!! Door checking zombies, arguing over zombie kill of the week, and "come 'ere ya spongy yellow bastard!" ... in reference to a Twinkie. Oh yea right up my alley. Totally a 5/5 I'm up for seeing it again only because I know I missed so much when I was laughing. And of course a new raid/heroic charge has now been added to our list of shit to yell before we kill something. "Its time to nut up, or shut up." When's the zombie apocalypse and where do I sign up?

Just a Short Post

I had an interesting dream last night.  Unusual that I remembered it, back in high school and even college I could remember my dreams 4 or 5 nights a week, the past couple of years however I haven’t.  Part of it is I quit training myself to try and remember and then I didn’t write down what I did dream so even if I did remember when I first work up I lost it in an hour.  They say that you loose over half of it in the first 10 minutes your awake.  But hey I remember parts of this one, and thought I’d share part of my twisted brain.

I don’t remember what the dream was about but the first thing I remember was sitting on some guys lap (no not the bf, someone I’ve never seen before but I got the feeling he was an old acquaintance) we were talking, I think he was flirting but I was just way to fascinated by his tattoo.  Not that tattoo’s do it for me, but the ink on this one was … iridescent.  He had a cheetah print up the left side of his neck, from kinda in front of his ear and I’m guessing out to his shoulder.  The spots were in black but they were outlined in this silver color changing stuff.  It was fascinating to look at.  It changed color the way the light hit it, and because of that it made them look like they could move.  I could go into some detail describing him because I remember spending a lot of time staring at his face while he was talking about whatever trying to place him.  Because during the dream I knew him but he looked different then how I remembered the person.  Ok that totally didn’t make any sense.  It was like I knew him when I was a kid or something, and its always interesting to me to see how someone grows up and changes, it was something like that, but at the same time this was like someone who had gotten a lot better looking then what you ever could of imagined… that still falls short of what I’m trying to say but I’m tired so I’m going to leave it at that.  The next thing I remember was being at work and seeing him walking across the park toward the shop.  I don’t know why but I went out to talk to him.  I just remember that it seemed like it was springtime because it was very green out, and the stuff now is about ½ dead… and the car lot that exists near us was gone… I don’t remember what we talked about but it was something important.  Anyway it didn’t make much sense to me but thought the tattoo thing was a neat idea and that I’d share…

costume ramble

OK first off I have to vent for a moment.  Just skip to the next paragraph if you don’t want to read it.  I’m going to beat the boy I’m dating.  Period.  I can understand him being mad at me last week because their was a rumor going around that I was cheating on him with a mutual friend.  While it’s true we went out after work one night, it was simply to vent and get something to eat.  Nothing intended, just pure going out as friends.  I can understand how it would make him mad because he has it in his head that theirs something going on between us already, and the fact that I neglected to tell him (with the idea that it would avoid the very fight we had) only made it look worse.  But that’s not the problem today; I can handle someone being mad at me.  Today he’s trying to lay a guilt trip on me to come and see him.  For anyone who follows my Twitter then you already know that I’m working almost two weeks straight.  I have to make it until Saturday and I’m finally off, so obviously when I get home, I want to relax.  I don’t want to change close, redo my makeup and drive an hour just so I can spend two or three hours with him before I have to head back home.  Of course he’s off for the next how many because he’s going out of town and is complaining that he won’t get to see me for another week blah blah blah.  Don’t get me wrong I want to see him, but I’m tired, and it’s not worth the gas or the miles on my Jeep to drive there for that much time.  If I had gotten off work early like I did yesterday then I probably would have but today we got a truck so I stayed till close trying to work out as much freight as I could.  Sorry.  I told him not to count on anything, I knew we were supposed to be getting freight today but as we always have about 4 or 5 b/l’s out at a time we don’t know if what we’re receiving till we tear open the boxes and start marking items off.  I couldn’t make any promises but I suppose he understood ‘maybe’ and ‘I’ll call you when I’m off’ as ‘yes of course darling I’ll leave my new job early just because your heading out of town and I should have to take the cut in pay and drive the extra miles.’  Pardon me for having a job. 
--Ok on to other things.  I have decided on my Halloween costume.  Drumroll please.  I’m going to be…. Another variation on my steampunk costume.  Anyone familiar with my original fic Peregrinor then you know Euan.  And anyone who knows me very well knows I did a version of Euan’s outfit for the last anime con I went to.  For anyone not in the know I’ll try to dredge up some pics.  Seems to me, Hold that thought UPS at the door…WOOT got my stuff from Lush, was wondering where it was.  Ok where was I, oh yes pics for that outfit are few and far between, it was the first night of the con, we got lost going there, and the person I was with wasn’t to familiar with my camera.  Not to mention you have to have surgical precision to use it, I don’t have any problems with shaking but apparently other people do.  Atm I can’t find any but I know we took a couple, because I was freezing my ass off and he was all ‘wait, wait hold that pose, hang on still shaky, no hang on again’ and I was all ‘I can’t stand still I’m to fucking cold!! Can we do this inside?  I feel exposed but I’m wearing pants ...’ Yes that last part went though my head a lot that night.  Skin tight dressage pants.  I looked great in them but I felt naked.  I’ll up a few pics of what I have done of the costume in a bit.  Need to charge the camera -_-“
Ok while I’m on the costume kick, anyone up for Anime STL 2010?  I want to go and I don’t.  I don’t want to take the bf because he obviously didn’t want to be there and he had no idea what was going on, and what I found funny he didn’t get.  Obviously lil bro and I will try to go together, last year he had work issues (then when I mentioned the bf that was a deal breaker) but I’d like to do a group cosplay as I’ve never really done one.  Last year for Halloween a couple of us all did Batman, I did Poison Ivy (gallery one, gallery two) one of the other girls was Batgirl, and we had a Joker and Robin.  That was fun but we didn’t do anything.  Sure we had people over and drank but its different going to a Con and having a group to roam the halls with and hang out with.  That and this year I want to have a room at the hotel, none of this staying with a friend up there and driving back and forth.  I want to be able to go to the dance at night, walk to my room, get a decent amount of sleep before the first panel I want to go to in the morning.  And have time to get into full costume.  Which trust me, takes awhile.  If anyone has any ideas or is interested let me know, we still have plenty of time to get something going. 

Happy happy

Just saw this on Twitter, pardon me while I drool over a new Warcraft instance, Icecrown Citadel: The Frozen Halls.  So what's the abbreviation on that?  IC TFH? Just IC? The way the article talked each wing will be a different instance, a la Dire Maul (which is DM ppl!  Deadmines is VC!) so I suppose that will mean it will be like DMN or DMS (Dire Maul North or South). 
Ok have to get back to checking in merchandise, just had to share.  I'll post more later, have some stuff to chatter about.

I'm a fan of the original but holy shit that was awesome.

Update on Yesterdays Post

Pics of Euri and her Worgen were added ^_^  Oh the memories.  ... pardon me while I go cry in the corner for a minute ... ok I'll put on a brave face and continue.  Ran CoS last night.  We had is scheduled for the rogue of our guild as she had never run it and I kinda wanted to help her get a flyer (she would be so psyched if she did it would amuse me to listen to... we'll get it for you Sylvane!  I promise!  The Baren's horse too!)  But it had a few hiccups... mainly Sylvane wasn't able to log due to some compy issues so as it was the H Daily Del and I did it.  But who I ran it with isn't the concern, its my dps that's the concern.  We did have another hunter in the group (silly dwarves, LoS issues is all they're for!) and as no one threw up recount I'm not sure how I did but I'm damn sure I wasn't last.  I know dropping that explosive trap every 10 ft had to help... ok it wasn't quite that bad but it amuses me to do that and watch them all die.  ... Volley takes to long to kill them... anyway.  What amused me about this run was not the stupid tank who tried to race though it, ok off topic a sec.  Anyone else having problems with tanks doing that?  Pali tanks specifically.  I've had a couple in non-timed runs, just fly though it where I had to keep Viper on half the time and the healer had to throw a fit just to get mana.  Slow down ppl its not a race!  Unless its timed... so I suppose he was ok last night, but he was pushing a little to hard... I mean he got himself killed cause he aggroed such a mob Del couldn't outheal the damage he was taking.  Which says something cause Del is a fucking awesome healer.  Ok back on topic, what amused me about last nights run was the fact... I didn't die. The whole group did... twice in fact.. but not me.  Oh no, I'm the hunter you want in your group.  See I'm one who understands when to use their feign death, and how to use their Gnomish Army Knife.  Oh yea, out of combat, rez healer, ppl love me.  ^_^ I'd do it more but the damn thing has such a CD on it.  And that in itself amused me.  Ok Mr. Tank go keep aggro, oh what even with my misdirection you couldn't?, oh you suck... oh shit, no no no mob go away go away, leave Delfinae alone!, screw this, Feign Death.  Yea that was the train of thought. 
But here's something I don't get.  The other hunter was all about his dps, and obviously I am too, but protect your healer! I had a palidan back in the BC days, she had a funny spec.  Ret/Holy.  But she wasn't a bad off healer and a decent off tank.  She needed the gear to heal better, but she could heal.  And I'll be damned if I didn't die more when I was healing then when I was off-tanking!  Which makes no sense because logically the healer shouldn't be taking damage.  And no before you say anything it wasn't because I coudln't keep my tank healed, it was because the tank couldn't get aggro before the dps started wailing on shit.  Or they wouldn't all target the same thing.  It always annoys me when tanks mark stuff in Heroics but it usually seems to go better if they do.  Its not the hard to figure out, no heals=die.  So protect heals=live.  Ok, done with the Warcraft speech for the moment. 
I can't say I know much, going to go home and see if I can figure out why the Linksys routers aren't cooperating with the WildBlue satellite.  I really need to straighten my room but I don't want to.  It bothers me its a mess but I don't want to do anything about it, lazyness yes!  That's what being a ninja is all about! 
Anyone else psyched about the Assassin's Creed psp coming out?  Yes of course you are.  You all have preorders just like me.  Anyone know if it's like the God of War edition and have Altair's face on the back?  Part of me wants that the other part doens't care as I've already bought a skin for it ...

Yes I know its a nearly naked girl.  No it doesn't bother me.  Acutally I think the art is wicked.  But oh, what's that you want the second ps3 game?  Well yes I want that too... Need a ps3 first.  ... I belive I know what I want for Christmas. 
Ok speaking of Christmas I already had decided what I'm getting for myself.  Asus G51Vx-A1 Pretty isn't it?  Its the precious.  ^_^ Now I really don't like the pricetag on it but I refuse to get a laptop larger then a 15.6 and I refuse to not have the newest Nvidia.  Yes I know, I should get a 17" and not have to pay as much, but I'm sorry.  I hike, I camp.  I want to play WoW on the go, and although I can climb a 50ft rock face like Spidy I'm not strong for the long haul.  And my mothers laptop is a 17".  Yes its cool cause its large but its so freaking heavy!  Not to mention it takes up so much room!  I want something light and compact but still has all the goodies.  Anyone who finds something better let me know as I don't completly have my heart set on an Asus, but I haven't found anything better and I've tried building at Dell and HP.

Ok first I have to say that for anyone following any of my stories on FanFiction.net, please note that they are all on a temp hiatus. I believe Redeemer will be the first to be updated then Titans. If I had a beta things would be moving along faster, not to say lil bro that you aren't wonderful, I would just like more than my eyes to see a draft before it gets posted. So as I've posted frequently anyone remotely interested please drop me a line, I promise I don't bite unless you pay me.... and only Lex Luther or Seto Kaiba is rolling in that sorta cash... probably literally rolling too... o.O

Ok for anyone who knows me you all know I'm an avid warcrafter, and anyone who doesn't, well you can read my tweets (90% are about in game something or something related to Blizzards virtual crack). And yes I have to rant about my addiction for a moment. I don't mind Blizz forgetting to add the range into my Kill Shot and fixing it with a patch, hell I'm not over the Worgen debacle

but I'm getting there. But I am just getting this funny vibe that I'm getting another nerf. And I don't like it. I'm finally equal with the other classes; I mean you don't want your hunters to powerful (Hunter tanks for the win!! Let’s do it again Nellith!!) but at the same time, I ran HoL last night. I'm not Uldar geared but I have at least the best stuff normal Heroics will get me, I came out bottom of recount. And I wouldn’t have been upset if Nellith or Arisperel or one of my guildies was there who runs ToC or something of that sort. But no, I know it was the Shammy's first run though HoL (he did get the achievement for Northrend Dungeonmaster but still...) I'm talking I epic failed. I know I have some lag because of my connection but that was retarded... I know one of my guildies says that recount isn't accurate because I can throw out damage faster then it can keep track, but still! ... Have a CoS run scheduled for tonight we'll see how that goes...

 Boondock Saints 2. I can't decide if I'm going to flip out or pass out. I knew about the sequel for a week or so now but just caught the trailer. Hopefully it’s not quite as pathetic as the trailer is making it look, I mean the first was freaking awesome... Like I have hoodies and tee shirts with their stuff on it awesome. Course part of the reason I loved it wasn't because it was a couple of Catholic Irish boys (hmm save the gender sound familiar?) going vigilante it was the fact that a lot of people didn't know about it, I'm afraid Hollywood is going to try to cash in on a good thing it should just leave alone.

Edit: pic of Euriela (Eitrigg-Alliance) and her Worgen added.

Been a long time since I posted here, I used Today.com for awhile, and they did something that irked me so I opted to quit and return to a blog that I had always liked but not used as much as I should. Of course don’t expect monumental updates here, my Twitter feed will obviously change frequently, but my fan fiction and original fiction are where I tend to spend most of my time updating. When I’m not WarCrafting of course.

Speaking of WarCrack I’m not sure what to think of the new announcement of the Cataclysm expansion. I like the idea of changing the world, and flying mounts in Azaroth, but I don’t like them saying that they are going to change the starting areas. I want my low lvls to run though Darkshore the way they always have. It would be cool if my 80 went back there and the world was different for her, just leave it the same till you 60 or something. Something like how they did Icecrown and the Death Knight starting area. If you hadn’t done the quest to change something then it was one way to one player and a different to another. And how dare they even joke about changing the Barrens, the noobs won’t understand the Barrens Chat joke now. Poor things.

Normally this is when I would shamelessly promote one of my stories by giving you a teaser, but truth is, if I did that now then it wouldn’t make any real sense, so I’ll just shamelessly promote my own fiction. You can find my work at either Fictionpress or FanFiction and searching for the author Tzimisce. Please R&R if you can, I love opinions… and am still in desperate need of a beta. Anyone that is interested can contact me via either account I just listed or though my blog.
