Another update journal because you know me and journals XDCosplay
This past weekend was Fan Expo and I went on Sunday, y'know, last year when I went I thought it was completely sucky -- this year was better I feel, even though I was only there for one day! LOL. It was more organized for the most part, had better things, I enjoyed it a lot more. Though, the one thing I've ALWAYS hated about Fan Expo is how under appreciated cosplayers are. We are like invisible people. We get shoved, mocked, talked nasty at, harassed and other things. But I guess that's because most of the people are older that go to Fan Expo? Like I really don't know.
For example, I lost my Rin momentarily because this guy shoved me, practically pushed me out of the way then said "watch where you're going," and I just glared at him. As well this really perverted Deadpool cosplayer were hitting on us, especially on my Rin and we were with her mother who got very defensive - it was kind of funny.
But! That happens all the time at Fan Expo I am not the only one whose complained about how cosplayers are appreciated, many have. There were people who asked for photos that I swear just had a twin fetish, especially this one guy who shouted "TWINS!" then asked for a photo.
Though good things did happen, such as we bumped into a Synchronicity VOCALOID group - they had everyone, Len, Rin, Miku, KAITO, MEIKO it was great. Well, they had a bunch of photographers around them so I ran over to take a photo and the Len noticed me [Len's notice each other man XD] and my Rin and was like
"OMG guys! It's Love is War Len and Rin!" and the group came to talk to us after. We got selfies with the other group and their KAITO photobombed. XD. I'm waiting for
to gimme that selfie photo, LOL. BTW, She's my Rin <--- go love on her |D
Ummm! This is getting a lot longer then I wanted, sorry guys but this is also my document D;;
We had a very successful Love is War shoot -- consisted of Miku, Len, Rin, MEIKO and KAITO. We did it on a roof top with all these pipes and stuff and was definitely our so far most successful shoot. We might do the series again since it turned out so good
On Monday there was a "Farewell to summer" cosplay picnic which I attended also as Love is War Kagamine Len. It started off kind of slow, but then the picnic hyped up and it was a lot of fun, made a lot of friends some that live close to me College
I'm sure you guys are getting a lot of journals about school now -- aha. Well, technically
school has started today for all of Canada but! I am not in college this semester. I was from September 2013 to June 2014 however, due to a decision I
made I am not in school this semester. I got tired of my parents nagging after me, I was stressed out last year that I almost committed suicide and my mother just refuses to listen to me when I tell her I need a day off, or I need to get serious help. It doesn't work. Besides, last year when I had to apply I was almost failing two of my courses and I wanted to pass. So, I did not apply when I should've and over the summer I applied over the summer for the winter [Janurary-April] semester. So I'm a little behind -- who cares? Honestly my argument to my mother is -- would she rather let me do it at my own pace or loose her daughter completely? Yeah, exactly xD I did get a letter yesterday though that they want to see my portfolio in TWO WEEKS which is insanely early, but I think that's a good thing because that means I might get early acceptance for Illustration? I don't know but I know that once I am feeling better [I am a little sick right now] I will work my butt off to get this done, especially the parts that needs to be in my style, in what I enjoy. I guess I will keep you guys updated? I don't know, expect artwork coming up and polls to help me decide what is strongest, I would REALLY appreciate your help guys Life/Job/Stress
I've been working on this journal for literally two hours because I keep getting distracted so now I'm just going to make it faster -- ahaha
Job - After I feel better I am looking for a job to get monies
as well as working on my portfolio. I'm really hoping the local bookstore will be hiring because that would be so awesome. A lot of the employees that do work there don't really know anything. Such as I've heard parents asking employees what kind of books for their child and they're like "idunno" and I've read and or heard of so many series because I read so much I think I'd be really helpful. Plus when stacking books I can sneak read the backs and make a list of even MORE books I want to read XD ahaha like beside my bed I have I think four books stacked of series I need to start?
Stress - The past month has been extremely stressful for me to the point where I wasn't on much and had major art block. I think after my cosplaying weekend though most of my stress is gone, I'm not even that freaked out about the portfolio so what I've decided is, when I get to that point again, go out and cosplay, even just at like the park, have a mini photoshoot with nearby friends to calm me down. It's fun being someone I'm not <3
Think that's it? I don't even know anymore, got such a headache I can't think
