miracleshining: Sherlock Watson 4 (Top)
Wow, it has been one hell of a long time since I've posted here! Then again, I finally feel well enough to type for long periods of time. This week Thursday will be my last physical therapy appointment for my shoulder and I will be considered "cured" for at least a little while. That made me really happy!

I didn't end up doing Jack for the charity event but Tinkerbell instead. I have to say it was the highlight of my cosplaying career! I had one little girl when she saw me (she was around four) run up to me, throw her arms around my neck and tell me she had waited her whole life to see me! *=^o^=* Another little girl thought it was the best birthday present ever that she got to meet Tinkerbell face to face and take a picture with her. I've been invited back for the Christmas season during the holiday light display to interact with the guests as Tink her winter clothes. I can see why Disney cast members love being the character, it has been the highlight of my year.

I'm really anxious to get back into writing again. I've got this massive idea for a Tony Stark/Jarvis fic with a Tony/Bruce and Bruce/Jarvis subplot to it. Its been niggling in my brain now for almost two months. I also want do get back to writing in the "Sherlock" fandom as I have seriously missed it!

That's it for tonight, ja ne for now! =~.^=V

I admit it without shame.

I am an "Aikatsu" addict.

Yes, it is meant for girls (and boys) between the ages of 8-12. Yes, it has simple themes, is brightly colored and about as sugar coated as it gets.


Each episode is as entertaining as the last and now that they (FINALLY) introduced my favorite character, America's Super Idol Kaede Ichinose into the series, I am extremely happy.

So much that I want to cosplay as her.

Everyone says I look like her when I wear my pink contact lenses. I'm thinking its the short hair.

I'm just a bit sad no one else cares for the series in my local friends group.

That's okay though, I still love it!

And on another note, LNchan is in the midst of writing me a Jarvis/Tony-ish fic if her muses will cooperate! ::dangles chocolate and sweet cream tea in front of muses.)

That's it for today, minnasan, ja ne! =~.^=V

Because today was tiring and I am tired and am SO happy to not go to work until Monday afternoon. Then three days off because I took vacation to watch my 'rents house and mine while the 'rents are off seeing my cousin graduate in Colorado. (It will be the first time Pop has seen his sister in 27 years, they're both very excited.)

So because I'm working on the next RDJ story and don't quite have the oomph to ink in the two omake komas, I drew a couple of my version of Captain Hook at work today. Enjoy!

For those of you who don't know, my current half of the state has been blanketed by one of the biggest rain clouds we've had in a very long time. Mid to late May is not a normal time for rain but there has been a very bad drought for almost 7 years so I am not objecting to the moisture.

I am, however, objecting to waking up at a quarter to six this morning with a steady stream of water plummeting from my ceiling in my new bedroom to my carpeted floor. Thankfully it was only one spot and I did manage to get a bucket underneath said leak. Also, a real blessing was that the leak is nowhere near any of my furniture and misses my bed all together. I still think I may have to sleep on the couch tonight because I can't stand the sound of water "plinking" into a container. =-.-=

In other news, I finished drawing and inking the next page of the SA doujinshi. I just have to erase the pencil marks tonight and being work on the following page. Randomly, yesterday a group of girls suddenly started to reblog the current pages 1-5 on Tumblr. One girl added that she wished that this was a crossover between Satan's Alley and that show The Vikings from the History Channel. I didn't really understand the comment but I guess if she liked it, whatever, right?

Finished the next chapter to LNchan and I's "Sherlock Holmes" piece. I'm pleased with it and it'll be fun moving into more of the action portion as well as beginning to "heat up" John and Sherlock's relationship.

That's all for now! I've got work in a couple hours so I best prep for it. Yay.

Absolutely loved watching Iron Man 3 last night. Because of some miscommunication with our theatre's website, when K and I got there, we thought there was only seats available for the 2D showing. Low and behold, they didn't publish the fact that the 3D had WAY more space available, so we got to see it in 3D with a limited amount of other peeps.

Overall, loved, loved, LOVED the film. Smartly written, fast paced, EXCELLENT CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT, and still holding to the initial IM charm.

Now, as LNchan stated, Haters are going to Hate. Because of these particular individuals, it has become harder and harder for me to even want to go to conventions or step foot into the comic book store. It annoys me so much in fact that I often send Nick in and then when I visit Rapid, I get it then.

I rather enjoyed the wrap-up of the movie and for those who don't know, yes Tony does get his Arc Reactor back in the later serials. However, I really enjoyed how RDJ played it out. Will he be back? Who knows but recently he was interviewed commenting that he would be thrilled if he and his fellow actors could make 17 IM movies. I know right now though he wants to get back to working with Jude Law and make a new Sherlock film, which I give the massive high five too!

And of course, let us not forget the love that is Science Boyfriends at the very, very end. Mark Ruffalo and RDJ together are a squishy, cuddly, self contained and confused adorable mess of a duo.

And I still think one of them should have been eating gummy worms.

So in a nutshell I've just finished inking the fourth page of the doujinshi. Like I said, in the beginning this was a joke. But now I'm really digging the small storyline I've set up. Since we know nothing of the film because it never existed, this is a bit fun to work with because in all essence it is a blank canvas.

The fourth page is the first time there is any spoken dialect and only one word is said. After all, they are supposed to be monks sworn to silence. I tried to make that obvious in just their facial expressions in the first three pages. As I continue, there will still be limited dialogue. Makes me wish seriously this was a real film because there could be such incredible acting done in it.

Alas, we'll just have to run with this storyline for now. XD

Also, I'm planning to sell a portion of my lolita wardrobe. Some of the items I haven't worn in years and some I just don't care for any more. I'm converting to a more Otome Kei style and the huge petticoat required dresses just aren't my digs any more.

Until next time, ja ne! =~.^=V

At first I was semi-joking about making the whole "Satan's Alley" doujinshi, but then I was playing around with some panels and text styles on my work's computer and randomly came up with the first three panels of page one. Then I drew in the first three panels. Then I set up the next three pages panels, including one containing minimal spoken text without any current illustrations.

What kind of hole have I fallen into? =^^=;;

Anyhoo, here's the page that I have. It's quite a bit smaller than the original copy and I do have the ability to do computer generated shading but I'm just not feeling it at the moment. Maybe in the future, ne?

Dah Doujinshi Page! )

Please stop being a pain in the rear and giving me MASSIVE inspiration when I'm standing at my checkstand and cannot take notes as tons of images and directions flood my mind.

Not that you will pay attention but in least I needed to let you know it is very annoying when I can't do anything about it! =-.-=

Random note, I pranked a telemarketer today by answering the phone in Korean. XD
miracleshining: Sherlock Watson 2 (Whisper)
I ended up going to the doctor yesterday and found out I had what I suspected. Strep Throat. I had managed the whole year without getting it and thought perhaps I would bypass it this year, since we've moved out of the "season" for it.

Low and behold, it reared it's ugly head. So annoyed I can hardly stand it. I've also lost my voice. I was fortunate that work let me leave very early today, I was pretty useless trying to answer the phone. =^^=;;

Sherlock musings, I'm debating if I want to do a secondary Sherlock outfit, more of a closet cosplay? I was thinking about doing his white button up shirt, pinstripe pants and suspenders? Like what he wears when he's messing around with his violin. Or maybe the dressing jacket from the first movie when his beloved Watson throws open the curtains on him? Seems like it would be a bit fun to do.

Randomly debating if I want to delve a bit into RPS writing again and do a bit of RDJude. It would just be here at DW basically for LNchan and I to get a chuckle out of. =~.^= Oh, and I've been making small animated icons from Sherlock. They've been a bit of a trick but fun to make!

And that's all for tonight, ja ne for now! =~.^=V

Konbanwa, minnasan, it was quite a day for me today. I made arrangements last night to be gone for today and tomorrow as I fight my battle with a nasty cold I got. Cue getting called at 5:30 in the morning because the other price coordinator suddenly called in "sick" even though she knew I was ill last night. Needless to say, I was pulled out of a deep sleep and informed my poor coworker that I could not come in, I really was too sick to even get out of bed. She called me back a bit later and said that our boss was going to come in and take care of it. What the price coordinator didn't realize is that I had spoken to my boss yesterday and he knew I was going to be gone. Score one for me for thinking ahead!

But enough about whining about work, I was scrolling through Tumblr collecting bits and pieces for my Marvel image collection and then realized that I didn't have a whole lot of stuff with Daken (Akihiro) on them. So a "tumblin'" I went.

I like Daken. I really, really, REALLY do. I know some of my comic friends state its because he's covered in tattoos and the fact that he's blatantly bisexual. Yes, those are bonus points but I liked him because he's manipulative, cruel and dowright EVIL. And *SPOILER*, I thought the way he died was really sucky and downplayed what a vital component he was during the whole "Dark Avengers" arc. (Mind you, I don't have all the issues and probably never will even if I tried.)

But aside from that, Daken to me seemed like the most realistic of all Marvel villians. Yeah, he had "Daddy" issues when it came to Wolverine big time. But there were times that he seemed sincerely concerned about the welfare of others. Even if for a flitting moment.

And aside from his metal claws he inherited from his pop, he had a very unique style and appearance that is all his own. He can rock a suit, being shirtless or putting on the "Dark Wolverine" costume and it all looks awesome.

Plus, he has the ability to manipulate his pheremones as a lovely website pointed out, which allows him to be utterly alluring to both genders and perhaps some alien lifeforms. He doesn't seem to have an issue with all three.

So bonus points to Daken, you were a villianous superstar and I hope that in the future, Marvel resurrects and uses you again.

In the mean time, let us appreciate all the fine boyz you managed to snag during your run. We have your "inferred" relationship with Norman Osbourne of "Spidey" fame. We have you hitting on Venom. We have you hitting on Ares. We have you hitting on The Thing. We have you not only hitting on Fantastic 4 Johnny, but coming to his apartment, sneaking in and putting on his clothes before playing all shy and cute with him. We have you making out with Bullseye and my personal favorite, we have you exchanging pheremone signatures with Remy. (Why the hell didn't that go somewhere faster?)

And pics, because I can.

Daken Being Daken )

Now I'm hankering for Daken/Remy. Why must I always like the hard to come by pairings! =;.;=

Happy Valentine's Day, minnasan, I hope it was a lovely one! Mum and Pop surprised me by taking me out for dinner at my favorite Mexican restaurant. Just got back from that. And though it is a bit shaky still, seems like Nick and I might be trying to actually make a go of it. (In least, that's what his mum Rose is really hoping. She hasn't physically met me but seems to already adore me. =^^=;;) We're exchanging Valentine's later this month.

And now for Bravo to Marvel. Once again you have outdone yourself with your X-treme X-men series. You pushed the boundaries and what made it fantastic was how accepting the fans were of this alternative universe you set up for the short issue run. Unfortunately, where I live, the comic book store only cares a minimum, they are more DC fans I think than anything. Yes, DC, you did a good attempt with the alternative Green Lantern storyline but I'm afraid Marvel trumped you.

Let's here it for the most wonderfully drawn and heavily charged panel in the X-treme X-men arsenal.

 photo herwolv1_zps3b5bc7ca.jpg

Just the way I like my couples. Big, musclebound, hairy and involving Wolverine. And apparently Wolverine likes his men taller, aka why he is groping on his Hercules.

Bravo again, Marvel. Not only were the fans super accepting of the Herc/Wolvie couple, but many of them have stated their blatant approval of this pairing. Too bad it was for only an alternative short run storyline. =;.;=

And that's all the rambling for today! As my precious LNchan stated, 1/2 off chocolate tomorrow!

After staving off the flu virus for almost three weeks due to peeps at work coming to the job infected, I fell under it's vicious grasp about 7 p.m. last night. Ended up vomiting about six times, had around a 100 degree fever and hurt so bad that I couldn't hardly move far enough out of the bed at my 'rents house to make it to the bathroom next door.

I'm back at my house now and though I feel pretty miserable still, in least I can function. In fact, I'll be heading to bed here in a few moments, I can hardly keep my eyes open.

Made a point of not mentioning it at all on FB, last thing I needed was Nick to make a whole drama thing out of it. Plus, I wasn't in the mood for it. =-.-=

'Rents and I watched the movie "Branded" tonight before I headed home. Complex film, boring as hell at the beginning but the last thirty minutes almost makes up for the overall lack of appeal. I give it two stars. I also saw that the studios are remaking the "Evil Dead" film into 3D. Is Bruce Campbell in the new film? And if he isn't, can they even remake the film because in my opinion, that's like sacreligious. (Yiss, my family and I are AVID Bruce Campbell supporters, he holds a special place in our hearts.)

Was thinking about making Fili's outfit but now I'm leaning toward Bofur's because I get to crochet a scarf, fingerless gloves and he wears a cool hat. That and I can carry a huge mining pick axe. Lionel's wig looks fantastic on him, he'll be my little "Thorin!"

Sincerely wish there was more Thorin/Fili fics out there versus Thorin/Kili. Also, wish that Fili was still the dom with Kili and even with Bofur. I can only see him being the uke when it comes to Thorin. I think with Thorin he's pretty much the uber seme with the exception of maybe Dwalin. Who IS the uber seme, no questions asked.

This was a wandering post. Random thing about tumblr, I still can't figure out why a person who doesn't want to read something like durincest would even be on the tag? I mean, you should know what you're getting into! Sheesh!

That's all for tonight!

Seriously, that's the name of the winter storm that is currently hammering my town and state. Winter Storm Gandalf.

Which led to me walking by one of my coworkers and stating, "On Interstate 90, YOU SHALL NOT PASS!"

I thought she was going to choke on her laughter. XD

So once in a while a BL game will come out that peaks my interest enough that I am willing to see if I can buy it and wade through it with my pathetic Japanese skills.

Terin no Guneval may in fact be that game.

Ojisan styled main character? Check. Character has facial hair? Check. Older man? Check. Actual interesting looking game play? Double check.

Oi, but trying to find a copy will be a joy. However, I already have an uber game crush on the main character, nicknamed "Whizz."

Woo-hoo, survived the Black Friday onslaught! Though honestly, where I live, everyone is very polite and all goods are really well stocked. We went to a store that was a block from where I live to buy an electric blanket. We then didn't even get to the next store until 7 a.m. There was no real hurry for us. Everyone was really friendly and in great holiday spirits, so it was really fun today! =^^=

Sent an e-mail to Mikki. We've talked about it once but I thought I would bring it up again to her.

Every year I plan to attend the "Labyrinth of Jareth's Ball" in Hollywood. Every year I am unable to go. Mikki's cousin Chani who is also a friend of mine and her roomie Julie, went for the first time last year. (They both live in Anaheim.) They said it was even more incredible than they had ever imagined. Pictures didn't even do it justice.

So now I'm thinking that we have to go in our finest Fae lord and lady outfits and attend. Because how often will I get the chance to dance in Jareth's courtyard?

So I finally managed to get my cabinet moved and put all my LotR collectible figures inside in my front living room. On the bottom shelf I have placed all my LotR Pez dispensers.

My sidewall is now covered with the gorgeous LotR tapestry blanket my grandmother got me in 2002. I love it, it's beautiful!

Next step, get the posters I want and get them in frames so I can line my walls. Then hopefully get a dress form to display my Arwen gown I made.

Finally, get my BJD Lionel's outfit done so that when I finally finish my Frodo cosplay for the "Hobbit" premiere, he'll be dressed as Aragorn.

So much LotR geekiness, so little time! XD
