Various babbles about con and RP and stuffz

Hey look, it's even broken up for you guys! Lol

So, con was pretty damn good this year. Yay for good company~ It was exhausting too though! And I only wore one costume one day! But I think I did more this last con than usual, so that's likely the reason. Cosplay chess (the main daytime one at least) was I think the best thing there this year - the AMV contest kind of blew and the cosplay was average. Most the cosplay groups were tolerable or actually good and there were a few that sucked toward the end XD; I think that's kind of per usual, really.

Didn't take too many pictures, but I'll upload the few I did probably tonight or tomorrow. Plz don't kill me Erika! XD; I got one of [ profile] seleraleonhart in her Hibari cosplay that not a single person recognized lol and one of myself in Aburatsubo which exactly one person recognized at con. Got a few of my sister though who did the Medicine Seller from Mononoke and omg she looked fantastic. The friend she spent most of the con with was running around as Excalibur too. I WISH I had gotten to see that because just the head piece alone was pretty incredible. I'll edit with pic links later. There were some other pics I wanted to take of various cosplayers, but some of them have become a bit snoody apparently and didn't want to be bothered to get pictures taken by normal con-goers. *ROLLS EYES*

Also, dealer's room ohohohoho I knew it would be dangerous this year and I was right. I spent sooo much. But oddly I think I spent more on FOOD this con o.0; How the hell did that happen?! Oh yeah, going out to eat with friends with alcohols >.>;; The haul this year was some doujin, some gorgeous fanart posters, some pins (Byakuran and Shoooou-chan!) and some artist alley pins too (>.> Shouichi again. SHHHH!), some figurines and two new phone straps. XD; No artbooks this year though. Nothing grabbed me as MUST HAVE THIS SECOND. But of course like a week later and the stupid Reborn artbook came out. XP So I will be buying that soon if it's at Kinokuniya and if not, well Megs and I shall each be ordering it. Now, come on, CLAMP, WHERE is the HOLIC artbook, damnit?!


Hmm, as for RP news I'm... struggling. Going to try a few things out to see if I can resolve my issues. I think it's honestly lack of sleep has been piling up and I can't concentrate. This leads to FRUSTRATION because come on - Kurogane is a harder character to play than say, brainless Maguri, but not by THAT much. Either way, I'm starting to wonder if a re-read of Tsubasa wouldn't hurt...

As for Shouichi? I just need to push the stupid guy into DOING stuff. XP Jittery little thing is giving me the same issues as Mihashi, good grief.


I've noticed more and more that as I've gotten older and dealt with more people in the world (online and IRL) that I've gotten... mmm more jaded. I guess that's to be expected really, but the extent of it has been surprising me lately. Like I hadn't noticed just how well I can set aside when people hurt me and it doesn't matter anymore. It's actually harder to set aside if they hurt my friends or 'Ina, really. Especially when it's other "friends" doing it.

I used to think I was fairly empathetic, but I'm beginning to wonder if it's not more that I'm capable of understanding other people's positions logically and not that I feel for them. Because lately I haven't been feeling much at all other than frustration and exhaustion at how people keep proving to suck. Especially when I can't understand their reasoning (or they don't have any!).


I'll either it sort it out myself and let it go or talk to people about it. It'll likely be the first one... Why so apathetic self?

All of this of course may still go back to the whole I'm way too damn tired and exhausted at LOTS of things, so maybe I'll feel differently or see things differently later. I definitely wouldn't be surprised given that just about the stupidest things are making me want to cry. Haven't yet, but heh, we'll see how long it lasts. So maybe I'm just cranky. Who the hell knows... Guess I'll have to see.

Yay self-reflection -_-;
