Star Trek Into Darkness Ranting [contains MAJOR SPOILERS]
    Wednesday, July 3, 2013 @ 01:11am
I am a huge Star Trek fan and have been for twenty years. I wanted to like this movie, but I didn't. Hence, the ranting.

I wrote this on the evening of Wednesday, May 15th. I just didn't get a chance to post it until now. I have read great reviews since. (This one is my favourite. Also, technoranma, who I watched the film with, wrote up a review here.)

I want a movie that inspires and excites me the way Star Trek does when it lives up to its highest potential.Collapse )

FanExpo 2012
    Monday, August 27, 2012 @ 01:41am
So I went to FanExpo today.

I totally wasn't planning to attend since I'm still boycotting the con for repeatedly valuing its profits over the safety of its attendees.

Becky had previously talked to me about going and we threw around the idea of maybe attending for a single day. I wanted to visit artist alley because I loooove it, but I didn't want to give Hobbystar a cent.

It worked out that Becky managed to snag us some passes from friends who weren't attending on Sunday. (Thanks, Bonnie and James!) I still wasn't going to go because I really dislike Hobbystar, but I knew Becky was really interested in some of the exhibits and guests, and I didn't want her to go alone, so in the end I sucked it up and went. (To be fair, the promise of a visit to artist alley didn't hurt.)

My con report. (TW: male gaze/entitlement, rape culture)Collapse )

Anime North 2012 Report
    Tuesday, May 29, 2012 @ 08:17pm
Anime North came and went. I'm not sure what to write in a con report this year, so I'm just going to ramble about the con in a semi-coherent fashion for a bit. Whoo!

Warning: This post is VERY image heavy!


My Anime North con report and some photos~Collapse )

As for the rest of my photos, all of my AN photos can be found here. Check'em out! :3

Finally, I have a request: I don't have a FB account and lots of the AN photos seem to be posted on FB. If anyone runs across a photo of me or Becky (since she's FB-less too), it would be awesome if you could link or send us the photo. :)

And that's about it. I hope you enjoyed this report! :D

Anime North Preview: Fire Girl Weekend!
    Thursday, May 24, 2012 @ 04:31pm
I have two new costumes for Anime North this weekend: Sailor Mars from the first season of Sailor Moon and Katniss from The Hunger Games. :)

Preview photos and some info.Collapse )

Since it's going to be super hot this weekend, I'm not sure how long I'll be cosplaying for. I'd rather be comfortable than overheat, so there's a good chance I'll be wandering around in street clothes. I learned my lesson about overheating when I wore Robin two years ago (practically full-body spandex + layer of skin-tight bridal satin + two layers of think bridal satin cape that's black + 30 degrees + direct sunlight = how to cook a Pan).

Also, I'm thinking of taking my Videl costume from last year because it's basically shorts and a t-shirt and it's super comfy.

Anyway, I hope to see a lot of you this weekend! Come poke me and say "hi" if you spot me. :D

Cosplay Site Relaunch
    Monday, May 7, 2012 @ 03:50pm
I finally relaunched my cosplay website. :D

I am thrilled with how it came out! The previous version was difficult to navigate, so this update is long overdue. I've cleaned up everything and added lots of new content that was never on the old site. Whoo!

Also, if any of you have a cosplay-related website you'd like me to add to the links section, let me know. :)

On the old LELOLA anime site that remains archived...Collapse )

Also, for the record, next month will be the 15th(!) anniversary of my website. Yeah, I don't know how that happened either.
