One month into 2010 and I have to say things have been rather interesting. The one notable thing that has happened is that I have a new job (JOY!) over at Yahoo (more specifically, at one of the data centers). It was pretty surprising since I initially applied for the job back in late October (about a week before Yaoi-con) but fell oh so short (two openings were available, I finished in 3rd). So when I received the call about two weeks ago asking if I was still interested in the job, I was pretty surprised that such a thing has happened. The only downside to the whole thing is that I'm only a temp/contractor, meaning I'm only working for six months and then the higher ups will decide if they'll renew me and work for another six months before the possible chance to become a permanent member. Hopefully everything goes well ^_^

After a long delay (aka me being lazy and nearly forgetting for who knows how long), I took the time to try to organize the list of possible/future cosplays and crossplays I would consider doing in the future. I went ahead and decided to create both a male (cosplay) and a female (crossplay) section, along with giving both sections an anime/manga list and a game list to better separate/organize things for my current watchers and future ones (and those random few that somehow came across my LJ). I now present the "organized list" (in alphabetical order by character name).

Quicky Holiday Entry

Self
Hey everyone, I just wanted to go ahead and put up a quickie journal entry to wish everyone a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanza (sp), Happy New Year and Happy Holidays to everyone ^_^

Man of 1,000 Nicknames

Self
Ok not really yet, but I do seem to have gained a couple of nicknames

Chilo (among family members)
Nando (among friends from school)
Ferny (among a friend of mine I do cosplay skits with)
Fern (among one of my sister's friends)
Princess Ferny Poo (nickname Yuffie came up with)
Cutie with a Booty (nickname Ruby came up with)


I think there are a few more in there, but some escape my memory. When I think about it, the numerous amount of nicknames that seemed to come my way seems like a bit of a guilty pleasure feeling thing that makes me smile sometimes. Also in some sort of weird and semi-warped way, interested in wanting more nicknames.

Sure I might've opened a can of worms in providing a little cannon fodder with these names, but who the hell cares? Anywho, I wonder what some of you think of these along if you have any other ideas/names/titles you may want to bestow upon me?
Zoro Cos
No, I'm not joking. I may have come up with a possible character to do (for AOD in January). If any follow the topics, they might know Yamamoto from Reborn!, but the issue here is a bit on the tricky side. The character has what looks like multiple looks that can be done and I'm having a hard time deciding which. So I come to you my fellow LJ readers/friends/followers/What few people that actually read and reply to these/etc. to help talk/discuss/choose/decide/whatever you want to call it figure out which look I should do.

#1                      #2

#3                       #4


There are other looks, but from where I found the pictures I couldn't tell what the whole outfits looked like

Oh, now that I thought about it, might as well tackle two birds with one stone here and actually add to the possible ideas list, though its only a single entry since I forgot to add it to the MASSIVE list adding back in the previous journal entry




Rangiku Matsumoto (Bleach)


That's it for the entry, if anyone has a HAIIIIFIT over this, then you're out of luck. So now let the insanity begin.

Oh, before I forget, I'll come up with a more organized list as soon as I can (and hopefully I'm not procrastinating that I would and not end up doing it).

Oh also, anyone think I should do begin a AOD/Fanime cosplay/crossplay costume Planned list? Don't care if its early, because its NEVER too early.


Gendo Cos
Some people are probably going to call me crazy/insane for doing this but I started to think to myself "Oh what the hell....". So be prepared for a rather big/large/long list that was fueled by looking at a fighting game character site. Also a heads up to keep an eye for some rather tough looking costumes (to my skill level that is), but I still will put them up there as possible ideas either way. I would say the experience over at Yaoicon over Halloween weekend increased my cosplay/crossplay desire much more, even going as far as picking some unexpected choices. Anyways, brace yourself for this big entry...

Yaoicon 2009 Report

Female Cross - Reaper
The con has come and gone..... All I have to say is that I had a good time there, even if I didn't take many photos this year in comparison to the amount I take for Fanime.

Friday: Was pretty much a dead day, since there was little to nothing going on that I wanted to go to. I originally wanted to try to go to the Swap Meet, but since I was starving along with Ruby, we decided to get lunch instead over at BJ's. Lunch was rather tasty (BBQ Beef Sandwich with wedge fries and really good root beer that I recommend trying). We then went back to the con and met up with her roommates that I ended up meeting for the first time (nice people they were, though I wished I got to know them better). After the girls changed into their costumes, we all head to the lobby and hung around there for a bit before meeting up with two friends of Ruby's. Hearing that both of them haven't eaten yet and have no ways of traveling downtown, I offered to drive them to go get food since I didn't really have anything to do at that moment. Once we got downtown, we walked around a bit to see what they wanted to eat since most of the places appeared to have big lines (this was a little after 6PM). We ended up going to California Roll and eating over there. It was the first time for all of us there, even though I've heard that the place is alright. I have to say that the sushi pieces were unexpectedly large and the two sushi orders I made were tasty. However, when I finished eating my stomach was full to a point where it wanted to kill me (Summary of what I ate: Breakfast - Cheerios and orange juice; Grilled Chicken Pita Snacker from Jack in the Box prior to lunch; Lunch - BBQ Beef Sandwich, wedge fries, root beer; Dinner - 7to8 pieces of sushi, two cans of iced tea). After returning from dinner, I hung at the con for a while before meeting up with Sharon and giving her the commission payment for my Fanime 2010 costume, then purchasing the badge for Saturday.

Saturday: I arrive at the con around 10:30 - 11 AM and head over to Ruby's room to begin my costume prepping. I was able to bring the right tape this time for the fake breasts (I forgot them at home when I used the breasts for the "Reaper" costume at Fanime 2009) and thankfully those were alot better at doing its job. Also had better makeup this time (MAC makeup) to use on my face and I have to say that I liked the results this time, didn't even need to use the backup ninja mask. When I had everything ready and all dressed up, Ruby and I headed down the lobby and checked out the Artists Alley. Rather "interesting" artwork in there I have to say even though I'm not all that big on yaoi.

We decided to go into the lobby to hang, where we ended up meeting various people. These people were rather intrigued at the fake breasts I was wearing and wondering about them. I've got to say that having these people poke and grope and grab my fake breasts was pretty enjoyable and fun. The expressions and words they said about them did manage to put a smile on my face, giving me some confidence in this crossplay attempt. At around 1:30-2PM I was supposed to be at a private photoshoot but the photographer was running a bit late, so I headed up to the dealer's room for a while (took off the heels along the way due to them doing a number on my feet, but these shoes lasted longer on my feet than the ones I wore for Fanime). Once going around the room once to check all the tables, I went ahead and made my purchases for the con, along with pre-regging for Fanime 2010 (Yay!). After that was taken care of, I made my way over to the Game room and crashed there for a while (playing Tastunoko vs Capcom). I go ahead and contact the photographer to check where he was, he was tied up a bit in changing into a costume (thus the delay) and was ready to do the photoshoot. Once that was done, I meet back up with Ruby and hung with here for a while before heading back to the room to change into the second costume I brought and meeting up with Ryu at the lobby, before heading downtown to have dinner with friends of ours at Old Town Sushi. We had a nice meal with plenty of food across the table (I had a dinner sized Tonkatsu plate and an order of spicy sushi *due to skipping lunch that day*) and was pretty pleased this time in my stomach with all the food compared to the nightmare on Friday. Does help remind me why I like Old Town Sushi (good food). Rest of the night was being in the game room playing Rockband, then hanging with Ruby in her hotel room until about 11PM when I head back home (since I live not too far from the con).

All in all, I had fun at Yaoicon 2009 and can't wait for the new Convention year in 2010 (Starting with AOD in January over in SF Japantown)


Before I forget, here are the links to the photos of me in crossplay that I had on my camera that I uploaded onto my Deviantart page (I apologize for the bad lighting due to being in the hotel room and I did as best as I could to brighten up the Devart posts prior to posting). I'll post links to the photoshoot photos once I receive them later

All that is left is to get ready for Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Female Cross - Reaper
First thought that this was going to be the first time I had done more than one journal entry in a month, turns out I was SO wrong about that (2 in July, 2 in August). Reason for the mindset was due to believing that I was doing only one journal entry, but guess I was wrong about that one.

ANYWHO....... back to the topic at hand. After looking around online, along with some thinking and other junk, I ended up coming up with two more entries to the so called  "list" of mine of possible cosplays/crossplays to do. Bet some people are wondering what are the reasons for the choices, if I told ya that I would have to do something very bad (not really, I don't have much reasons though since I suck at reasons/explanations sometimes). But enough babbling and on to the reveals for this entry.




Blair Dame (Street Fighter EX)




Juli (Street Fighter Alpha 3)


Yep, two FEMALE entries to the list (so it doesn't look all top heavy with just male cosplay ideas)


Updated Probability List
Marco (Eyeshield 21)
Wolfwood (Trigun)
Lucia (Final Fight 3)
Johnathan (Jojo's Bizarre Adventure - Battle Tendency)
Takeshi (Katekyo Hitman Reborn!)
Musashi (Eyeshield 21)
Blair (Street Fighter EX)
Juli (Street Fighter Alpha 3)

That should wrap things up for this entry. Next week should be pretty interesting for me, with Yaoi Con taking place on Halloween weekend and allowing me to dress up with something that is a bit of a challenge (personal challenge that is) in doing another crossplay. Hopefully I have everything with me and the right stuff to pull it off (forgot something for the chest at home with the Fanime attempt along with having inferior makeup). Also looking forward to pre-reging for Fanime 2010 over there too so I can take care of that as soon as possible.


Does make me wonder though if I should spill the beans or not about a certain costume I am going to do for Fanime 2010......what do you all think?

Better wrap things up before making this longer than it should.
