feikoi: stick figure Robin flailing (flail)
Have submitted two items so far, and have another three possibles kinda ready? Seriously, the item list is ridiculous. Really really.

Who wants to help out? XD

In other news... who am I kidding, there is no other news. Other than somewhat old cosplay pix, cuz I don't think I've actually posted these yet!

Renji: Halloween party pix, both at school and not. I think you'll be able to tell :P
The wig doesn't spike nearly as much as it could, but that's intentional, as I wanted to be able to switch between up and down styles without too much pain.

Gaara: wig progress and make-up practice.
OH NOES NO BROWS )__________________
But seriously, if you have any original fills or ideas on how to accomplish some of those items, and don't mind me submitting them for Team #67, I'll gladly take them. You can reach me at feikoi [at] gmail.com.

Halloween! Favorite holiday, it must be said, for obvious reasons. I mean really -- candy? costumes? /Awesome/.

I've, uh, apparently decided to make a Gaara costume this weekend. Yes, I am fucking insane, but I have permission to wear a costume at one of my schools next week, so I wanna do something new.

(or, well, said permission:
Me: Hey, can we do a Halloween class in October?
Head teacher: Sure, what do you want to do?
Me: Well, halloween words, bingo, talk about Halloween in America...and hey, I have a lot of costumes, I can bring them in for the kids to try on.
Head teacher: Sounds fun!
Me: So its okay that I wear a costume to class?
Head teacher: Okay.
....[note that this takes place half in Japanese -- the teacher's English is better than a lot of elementary school teachers, but is still probably on par with my Japanese, so, uh, who knows if we got the same thing out of the convo, lol])

was playing with make-up )

I may get another wig -- perhaps the exact same wine-red bob, but one I won't feel bad chopping up until it's short enough to spike a bit. (I really like this wig, I have it in like, four colors? Especially fab since they're under Y1000 each.) Or I might buy one from the Nakano shop, since I'll likely stop in there this week. 

Oh, I haven't mentioned! In Nakano Broadway, down the hall from the fannish stores, is a cosplay shop. Now, I hadn't looked at the wigs there before, because I was expecting the typical Mandarake/cosplay shop prices. But my friend was picking up a wig to do Babydoll (Sucker Punch), and so I helped her out, and wow, they're cheaper or comparable to Maple. Awesome. So she now has a loosely curled wig down to her ass which looks awesome, and I'm thinking about getting it in orange. Remember that post I made about cosplaying Shatterstar? I think this might work (it's on the slightly darker end of oranges, like the first wig pic or Bodyline's orange) -- actually, the style looks rather like the first wig as well. I have a pic of my friend wearing it, but haven't gotten permission to post it. Anyway, it was closer to Y4200 at the Nakano shop -- less than Maple, more than the unstyled wigs in Nippori, but as Nakano is closer, I don't have to pay as much in train fare. \o/

I've ordered green mesh contacts -- they're the UV ones, seen here, and I haven't managed to find a non-blacklight pic of them, but hopefully they'll a) fit, and b) work color-wise. (My blue eyes as a base should help with this.) So far, I've ordered all of my contacts from YouKnowIt.com (which has a few mirror stores -- bodyjewellryshop, foureyez, etc.). Communication when you email them with questions is pretty meh, but they're cheap, AND they offer free international shipping. Win. I've ordered, hmm, I guess this makes my sixth pair of contacts from them. The most recent pair, Mystic Green, do not fit my eyes at all, which is weird -- everything /should/ be the one general size, since I'm not ordering them prescription (which I should get my eyes fitted for anyway, but hasn't happened yet), and I haven't had this issue with any of my other pairs.... I haven't gotten a response from the one email I sent the company, but whatever, I'm only out $15. (Yes, they're that cheap. It's /awesome/.)

Btw, these are the one's I ordered: http://www.youknowit.com/online-shop/i-glow-green-screen-contact-lenses-pair623283.cfm

....My posts are Digression Central, aren't they. Whoops.

Oh god. *buries face in hands* So at orientation today, manager had made picture cards for our self introductions, with our likes/dislikes and apparently, he managed to come across all of the yaoi blogs in search of a good Renji pic. He was like, "Is this character gay?" *red* I was so flustered and could barely keep from cracking up at the same time. (But hey, I got nicely printed fanart outta the deal, lol.)

  26. Also, @ajafair is the reason I got into this fandom in the first place. Blog with recs and meta: http://bookshop.dreamwidth.org #iblameaja
  27. Hmm. So, random fandom note: why does the genderplay usually get heaped onto the physically slighter characters? That's lazy thinking. :P On #inceptionkinkmeme, there are a bazillion girl!Arthur prompts, about equal girl!Eames & boy!Ariadne, and 1 each Saito & Yusef. No Cobb. Y.
    • In SGA fandom, it's usually Sheppard, though I've seen a bunch with academia-politics for McKay and Jackson, too.
    • Oh god. Was trying to think of other fandoms with genderbending and now want Naruto/Inception xover SOMEHOW. Dream ninjas? SexynoJutsu? IDEK
