I love, love, love, love, love, love, LOVE this time of year and it's finally here!!
I not only love Halloween and the opportunity to freely cosplay and not be condemned for it, but also the weather in this winter-less land has FINALLY become so nice that I can actually take afternoon walks without sweating to death and enjoy the breeze and the beauty around me.
But before I tell you about my upcoming plans for the holiday, I have to tel you about the wonderful weeks I had just had.
1st I got to finally cosplay "Matryoshka" by GUMI and Miku from Vocaloid, with
as Miku and me as GUMI. The cosplay makeup was so much fun to put on, but making it was a biyotch. I had to hand-dye my sweater, because TARGET didn't have sweaters in the blood red shade I wanted to I took a hot pink one and dyed it while trying to keep my aunt's uber-white laundry room spotless which I did but the red dye bath was making it REALLY difficult. BUT I got the hoodie made a that's the important thing, and then I used fabric paint to paint on the Matryoshka face, and after I had painted it, Jedi Skysinger, Anilee, Grandmama Evie all said that I had successfully made the face look like it came out of a cosplay store.
I then wore my artfully ripped jeans from this pic obsidianempress.deviantart.com…
and my new pair of lace-up boots, my black gloves and my black lace t-shirt and 524 it was done!
2nd I went to my school's Halloween party aka Fright Night and test out my new costume and my new GUMI wig. The wig was a bit tight but I enjoyed having people turn around to see if I was really wearing green hair and I got to have some epic cosplay advice from Hanari (who's superior to me in terms of cosplay epicness) and Rachel a fellow Vocaloid fan. At the party I got to dance my heart out and make new friends and I had a great time!
3rd Naomi, Becca, Angela and I finished the remainder of out cosplay, but instead of going to a party with a costume contest at the Anime Store like we were told, we ended up bored to tears because there was no costume contest! :angry: BUT! Jedi Skysinger saved us by inviting us and reserving seats for us at the Star Wars Night Hockey Game for the Solar Bears and we had a blast because the Bears WON!!
We had a great time, we got free candy, free gift bags and free autographs from renowned Solar Bears players and met some rebels who knew that we were from Vocaloid and some super-nice cheerleaders to boot and we met the mascot Shades! all in all it was a AWESOME night!
Now today, instead of Matryoshka GUMI I am now an Arnold Schwarzenegger inspired Terminator (NOT the Terminator from the last movie I would NEVER wear that tight of a body suit that shows THAT much cleavage.) I'm more of a feminine version of Schwarzenegger and I got my makeup and leather up and on and I can't wait to see people's reactions to the look. Afterwards I plan on handing out candy to Trick-or-Treaters at Sith Lord Shoelaces place and watching "Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown" for movies and with, of course, "Terminator 2: Judgement Day" and "Transformers."
Anyway I hope you have a blessed day and a very happy Halloween.
