It has started! Lots of fabric for Sakizou's Sapphire design! I have the basic stuffs for the dress, some gems (Still need to craft more of them), the shoes that will be modified, and some patterns. Still need to find a wig (or wigs XD) lots of laces, the stupid white and gold tights, and the ruffs and cape :O Planned for Otakuthon 2013!
I already scrapped a first pair of shoes (a pair that I really prefere to those one since they look like converse. (Liek this: http://www.cloggs.eu/content/ebiz/cloggs
So I had to find new shoes (was not able to find the same model as last time sadly). But I had to find a way to still paint the sole the right color. After a while, we discover this thing:
Coming with many different colors, they are so easy to use! And they dry super fast! With one marker, I was able to do both shoes with no problem. And being a marker, you can easily control the way to apply it! XD I seriously was not unhappy with this purchase, and seriously think about correcting my boots for Heather Mason with leather brown marker XD
So finally ends the saga of Psyche's shoes XD Seriously...At least, those shoes would be useful for both Psyche and Delic XD I still have to fully try them, like, will the paint fall of the soles if I walk too much? Will water make the paint come off too? I will have to try it out XD
Anyway, I am now waiting for another figurine to come. The absolutely awesome realistic figurine of Izaya! http://le-meilleur.net/wp-content/uploa
I can't wait! It looks so sublime! <'''D I received the confirmation that the package was sent yesterday! <3 Also, after some research, there is also a figurine of Celty, from the same company, that look absolutely awesome coming up for June! I guess it will be the next one I will pre-order X3 It is one of the rare figurine of her than looks so stunning! http://media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lv4g56q5
But not only they make an Izaya and a Celty figurine...guess what? They will also make one of Shizuo! No released date yet..but I Suppose it will be at the end of the year. Anyway, from the preview shot of this figurine...oh my GOD! THIIIIS: http://media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lz9d9vpg
*Cough cough* Enough figurine talk! XD For now, nothing much to say. Except there is a student strike going on, meaning I have not been going to school for a week now. (Well, I don't mind it that much, it gave me time to relax, advance some school project lol XD) Will probably start working on some cosplay again, thought the small ones like Psyche, Izaya and Roppi (they only really need the vest to be done so, nothing too complex or long). Anyway, this strike is unlimited, so I don't know when it will end, and mostly: what will happen after it? Will I have the missed weeks of school packed with the remaining ones? Will the semester be extended? (It can only be extend to a certain limits: June 15th to be precise) Or just plainly be cancelled? Last option will be kind of annoying since I will have to wait till NEXT winter semester to have class again...First option will be a major pain in the ass 'cause..come on, I can barely do it will all 15 weeks of school, so focusing let's say 5 missed week with the remaining one would be hell. And the second option could be problematic for Anime North...so yup, the future is pretty uncertain but what can I do? XD Trying to chill it out for now and taking advantage of the time to do some things.
Also took the opportunity to clear out something I was stuck with since a good...hum..almost 7 months now. This heartbreak. Well, I can say I can finally turn the page of this...pathetic and sad part of my life. Because, I think I had trouble coming over it, since some doubts lingered ever since. Like: Did she loved me a little, or not at all at that time? Because, as I said before I think, those moment, when I was in love, I was truly happy, because at that time, I felt loved by someone else, or at least I thought I was loved by someone else. Which is where the doubt came from: was I only imagining myself or was there really a little bit of true love there? So I decided that enough was enough, was kind of tired to torture myself that way, and decided to ask said person about a particular event, where, by the way she was acting, made me hope that maybe she love me too, at least a little. I got the answer pretty quickly, only saying that well, on that particular event, she was only joking, that she was not serious at all and that she's like that with everyone(which I can confirm).....So yeah, that sure hurts, knowing that, the times I was really happy was bullshit all along. But now, I can turn the page, I will not care for her anymore, never again in that way, I swear. My doubts are all clear now. I'm not saying I will never see her again, I do like to discuss sometimes, but no I can have some..emotional distance.
So now, my heart is free again to any charming lady for the taking ;D (As if there is many reading it, oh well XD I tried ;D)
Anyway, that is one hell long of a journal again xD I will try to figure out where I can post picture in my journal. Until next time!

1. Album containing prints bought from convention, prints that actually fits in there XD
2. Print given to me by a friend, have to protect it before putting it on my wall XD
1. Those are the official posters I bought from someone on LJ. I have some of them that I bought from Chinatown, and the difference are quite noticeable. Like, the official one often have white background, and the unofficial have unrelated background. (I have seen the poster of them in tuxedo with a city background, a countryside background, but hey, 2 is enough xD). Or another noticeable thing is the poster where Shizuo is holding his pack of cigarettes, the name durarara is not at the same place, and they chopped some parts at the top (where the official durarara name was XD)
2. The other side of two of the four posters I bought. The other two had un-Durarara-related stuff on them xD
They were bought from someone on LJ in 2011.

Plushies of Shizuo and Izaya <3 I love them to bits! Also, photobomb of mini-izaya cushion and my plushy of Zorua XD
You know they are at least official when they have the logo of Aniplex XD (And all the copyright of Ryohgo Narita)
1. Received it as a birthday gift from my friends <3
2. Bought them as soon as I could X3 And they came with awesome post cards ^^
Let me tell you, when I heard they were translating the mangas in English, I was sooo stalking the release date! X3 I am also stalking for the next ones! And maybe, who knows, I will try to sniff around if they will ever translate the novel in English! ('Cause...hell! The manga is even more obscure than the novel XD)
"Durarara!! 3 way standoff - alley-" on psp, in Japanese, bought from someone on LJ. I am trying to improve my Japanese so I could play this game! XD However, from what I understood, this one is actually some kind of sequel to "Durarara!! 3 way standoff" (notice the "alley" added at the end). Information on the game are also hard to find sadly. But if it is, I will try go order the first one then X3
A friend of mine bought it when she was in Japan. It's awesome, waking up seeing those two on my alarm clock XD Also, notice the unofficial pack of cards XD
Rests of official stuff!
1. Durarara Notebook, with deck of card, and, Shizuo and Izaya pin set.
2. Close-up of deck of cards
3. Close-up of pin set
2.Chibi! Izaya <3 (Also bought from another person on LJ, seriously, you never know the marvellous thing people are selling at a reasonable price! <3)
Also, I pre-order the super amazing realistic Izaya figurine! It has been shipped! Also, I willl probably order Celty and Shizuo from the same compagny as this izaya, because the figurine are THAT gorgeous!
The rest of my collection! ('cause I am getting lazy and tired XD)

1. Chibi Shizuo and Izaya, bought at Otakuthon 2011 (I think XD)

2. Left: Shizuo plushy cell phone charm. A little bit to big to my liking for a cellphone charm XD oh well XD
Right: Key chain, with Izaya on a side, and Shizuo on the other. They are super cute! The artist did an absolute great job! <3 It still is my everyday key chain XD
Holy snaps! That was super long! Two hours to post this things. XD I was actually surprised that even some people told me they were curious about my Durarara room, since I mentioned in on facebook a little and on DA too. Oh well, here it is! My huge collection visible in my room up to date.
Because, this doesn't count the insane amount of doujinshi I have in my room xD Or the even more insane number on my computer XD (171 doujinshi last time I count them xD). What can I say, I love this to bits. X3

A small prop I was working on:
A little pink fairy, from the Zelda series <D And here where it is now:
I have to admit that I feel a little bit bad about putting it inside the bottle XD (and it was a freaking pain to XD damn bottle!) Iam still wondering if I should make a Navi inside a bottle D8 (also, I was shamelessly testing Livejournal updating of picture...not bad, but not that good either XD)
Because last week was crazy meet-up with everyone I know, I have to talk about it! >D
So, after a long week-end of working...TUESDAY! Meeting up with Aly, Jess and Priss, to finally finish watching Utena! (Last box set..in HD <3 This is bliss after you have seen it only on streaming website XD) If you have never watched Utena, I strongly recommend it to you, the style is really nice, full of randomness and yet full of metaphor. Omg, all the shit we could have said while watching this anime xD Or I recommend you to do like me: Watch the movie (The adolescence of Utena) first, if you like the crazy fuck-up setting and all, then watch the anime. It is basically the same, but less hyper-metaphorical, and more bouts of randomness XD Anyway, it was plenty of fun <3 And it was kind of funny seeing Aly and Priss nodding to sleep(when they are the one who have not watch the anime yet XD) while me and Jess (who have already seen it) were absolutely awake! XD Aaaw, anyway, I shall make them watch Durarara! (Now that I have my dvd <3)
WEDNESDAY! Went at Marie's place in the evening for a evening of FF10. Been a while we started the game together, and I was only playing it when we play it together LOL XD But we are coming to an end! The end is near!...but we need a looot of leveiling up, aeons and legendary weapon for that XD But we decided to try fighting Sin...Went relatively went, beat up his first arm, then the other...then beat the crap out of his head so we could go in...the Seymour appeared....and totally beat the crap out of us in 3 turns XD OTL oh well, I decided to do some levelling and going after some legendary item...like the EFFING Sun sigil for Tidus weapon...yeah...where I need to do a chocobo race....with absolutely retard Chocobo...
Holy snap, I never was that mad, in my entire freaking life X'D But they were fucking retarded! Seriously, through out the game, you can ride chocobo, and they are real charm to controls...but doing this particular race, omg it fucked up so bad! Like, it doesn'T want to floolow straight line...NOOOOO, it want to actually go right and left whenever it please...If it was only that okay...BUT THERE IS FREAKING BIRD COMING AT YOU! And they are jsut pure evil, they are quite far away from you, you think: Ha ha! They won't touch me..WRONG! They will do a effing 90 degree turn if need be. They also slow you down (which is bad) and add 3 more seconds to your final time, which is EXTREMELY bad if you want the absolute time of 0.0.0. You can catch balloon too to deduct 3 sec of your final time, which is the key to get this fucking sigil. Only problem, my chocobo is way to retard to actually hit the balloon...but will hit the freaking bird instead. Good job chocobo..good job. So you have really bad control liek it is not permitted to, a retarded bird avoiding balloon and blood-thirsty bird coming at you. Do I have to mention I still have not gotten the sigil yet? XD And that my best time is 0.12.2 sec? XD Seriously, my theory is the girl-trainer want to protected the retarded chocobo in the wild that would have die at the hand of monsters and take care of them...And one day, she thought: Let's race with those chocobo, even if the whole universe is against them 8D Anyway XD I will try..eventually..to get it XD
SATURDAY! I want at Judith and Michael's place, for a afternoon of anime watching (This time: chronicles of the war of lodoss) and playing with Nightcrawler, the almighty kitten XD Also, it was pretty fun seeing Judith being addicted to my ds game "My japanese coach" XD Also, for the evening, Judith and I went to the restaurant (Sumo ramen for the win!) and we talk about lots of things, from ghost stories (pretty sure we scared the shit out of people at the tables next to us X'''D) to school and work experience. Think we were there for a good 3-4 hours LOL XD But I really loved it <3 So nice talking various things with great people <3 (And sharing my passion for paranormal, even if I am a total wimp about it XD) It gives you energy for the upcoming semester!
SUNDAY! I was suppose to make some commissions, like going to this uniform shop for a cook attire..but it was closed on Sunday >_> So next things on my to-do list: Go help Aly install some programs she needed. I was suppose to be there only for 2 hours at least...ended up being there for 6h X'D we had some problems during the first installation, so we had to uninstall, install again (with us playing some games while the installation was finished, and even after lol XD) In the end, I decided to wait for Aly's roommate, Jess, to come back form work to say "Hi", and ended-up stay for another hour and a half, talking with the two of them <3
baaaaw, that's all!
So, after...a good 10 days, I finally decided to give myself a good kick in the ass and update here! XD Well, at least to expend a little on my really small overview of last year.
Well, there is not much to say about it, because of the fact that during my semesters, both winter and autumn, well, school is pretty much taking my life away XD so nothing really happened u-u And when I was not at school, I was either working at my part-time job, working on school project at home OOOOR, if I was lucky enough, meeting up with friends XD. So that take care of about half the year XD As for summer, it was pretty okay, catching up with friends, going to conventions, working on cosplay, and of course, working. However, I did say in my DA journal that the year did not started that well, but became better, until it became shit again. Well, I have to admit that falling in love do help in making your year better! I guess I was slowly falling for someone, overtime, and yeah, it makes you feel like the world is brighter. (They were right! D8 omg!) But of course, why it kind of ended like shit well, is kind of obvious, if you have also read my DA journal: I got heartbroken. u-u But, I do feel kind of stupid about this heartbreak, because it was so stupid. It's like I confess my undying love to said person. Oh no. Not at all...She ('cause yeah, she) tell me: ooh, you know your friend I met the other day? I kind of like him..a lot. That's it...I felt heartbroken because of that! Well, at first I was kind of pissed, did not know really why (and kind of freaking out like: oh shit! no! I don't want them together, if shit happens, I'm right in the middle! *A* <- yup, I really thought that XD) Anyway, after a couple of days, feeling pissed and depressed, I did realize that it was probably a heartbreak...and after taking a little with some friends, they kind of confirmed it XD (By the way, I am totally thanking those friend for the time they took comforting me i-i it was really appreciated! XD) *Sigh* Anyway, I still do kind of felt stupid about this heartbreak but, damn, it hurt like shit D8 Hurt too much to be nothing. I am over it....I think X'D OTL
Funny thing, when going to said friends' place, talking about this heartbreak and everything, there first reaction was: Wait...she did not notice that you like her? Ô_o Because damn..we did XD
Me: uuurgh OTL Was it that obvious?
(What made me laughed was when they said: Well, most of the time, you seemed pretty guarded, careful, about anything really to love,being close...and suddenly, with said person, you were not XD Aaaah, they sure know me well <3)
Aha ha...Anyway, still, often I am still thinking about all the things that happened, all the things where I was like: "Is it a sign? Does she appreciate me too? Like that much?" Still, I know some people have warned me, to be careful, but oh well >_> OTL Mea Culpa XD
*happy sigh* Ah, nice to have it off my chest a little...Guess I did not wanted to talk about it right away, especially after my really short mention of it on DA. Anyway, I do feel like I will have a hard time falling for someone else, 'cause this whole thing have left me a little...bitter, even more guarded than before, but it is not, improbable. (And also, this feeling...of loving someone...it was so wonderful, I wish, I want to feel it again, and this time, for someone who will feel the same fully) So yeah, closing this slice of life for now XD
As for the rest of my life, pretty simple for now: playing game, working, sleeping XD And meeting up with friends 8D (God! I think last week was the busiest one X'D Everyday I was out working or at a friend's place XD)
Concerning cosplay: Today, with my mom, we went to a place selling uniform for work, all kind of it. I was able to get a full cook attire (vest, pants, appron) for 70$, which is really cheap after I look up some place selling only the vest for 130$ Ô_o (If it wa smade of gold, I don't...) This will be for Jun Satou, from the awesome anime called "Working!!" <3 And after that, we went to FabricVille and I got my hand for the perfect fabric for the vest of Heather Mason...the last piece of this cosplay! 8D (And there was a special for the day, buy 1m, get 2 free X'D So I bought 3m for the price of only one 8D)I am quite excited! I think I will start it this week! <3
Elesa, the pokemon black/white gym leader is not coming out soon >_> I will have to seriously think about it, how to fix things and all...(Having a dummy of myself would be absolutely great! Because, seriously, putting and taking the cosplay off constantly = no good!)
This will be all for this entry! (I am pretty sure your eyes are bleeding XD)
- Current Location:Canada, Montréal
Instead of spamming my DeviantArt journal, I shall post most of my stuff here, life-related, maybe some school project that I don't feel like posting on DA (Not worthy enough? XD And the fact it is now mostly cosplay-related , I will not post my junk there! XD)
Okay, first thing first, I must try to understand this layout XD And also...check if there is a way to change de design or theme for my journal @-@.
After that, I will post some new journals XD (I will also try to keep this one active during my semester (But I can't make promise...they are pretty hardcore sometimes in term of work load, and I don't know how the workload will be for this coming semester *shiver in fear*) compare to my DA juornal tha toften get updated every....2 months lol OTL XD
