Katsucon post!!!
So this year marks the return of myself to Katsucon.... it's been six years! The last one I went to I got really whatever and got into a bunch of crying fits and raver fist fights and I got demoralized inside the rave AND in the hotel room by people who I don't really remember their names...... (that's not a sexual thing btw)

This was also Huntyre and Leilands (my Chiwoo and Ducan (eventually I won't have to explain this) ) first Katsucon. Huntyre got some good attention (and a new shirt from Amubleu!!!!!) but Leilerzzz stayed in the room the entire time on the balcony watching as all the cosplayers and whatever else went by. We all watched the fountain show each night. Huntyre was more amazed by it than I was and I don't think Leiland was all that impressed - but he's hard to impress anyway so I digress....

I liked the hotel. It was pretty nice... and I've stayed in REALLY nice hotels but the size of this one was phenomenal. I shouldn't have spent so much money on it though but it's cool. My friends all had a good time so I suppose in the end it was worth it...... I'm rambling, and I'm sorry.

Sooooooo if anyone knows me (and some of you kinda do) you know I love to be flamboyant and EXTREMELY colorful in my manner, my talk, and my outfit. It's just kinda who I am. I got alot of really positive things said about me this con.... and one guy who goes "the great wall of China and your outfit are the only two things visible from outer space - I think you need a dimmer switch." I replied with "oh, I've been looking for one of those but no luck so far!" I think I defeated him because he wanted some sort of nasty response back and I didn't give him that satis-fact-shuuunn. He's a steampunky anyway so eww gross. They mostly smell of bad leather and cheap ambitions so I guess he needs to take out his bearded wrinkled frustration somewhere..... not ON THIS KID THANK YOU! (If any of you guys are into steampunk, I apologize - but on the level - they have been some of the MEANEST people to me in my entire con existence. I guess seeing the world in technicolor isn't a trait they have..... ugh.

I met alot of new friends this con! Some of which found me on facebook though I NEVER GAVE THEM MY NAME AND IM VERY CONFUSED AND SLIGHTLY HORRIFIED. Oh well, maybe they just found other people from the con and did a backwards search, who knows? I guess I'm important that way? (no, probably not...) My favorite new vendor was this girl named Brooklyn who sold window decals.. I bought six of them and put them all on my car and my PS3. They are phenomenal and I think I'm going to custom order some. She was really nice and wanted my picture and facebook info so I gave it to her. She was great, like 4 srs. Also, I met ANOTHER Kristi but this one had a doll and she was extremely nice to me though I didn't know what to say to her...... So I was kinda shy. But if you're reading this (and I think you added me as a friend) you're pretty awesome. I'm just slightly nervous around new people......

(Also, there will be a separate post about DJ Jimni Cricket and the rave)

AND OF COURSE! The old friends that I always love seeing: Dizzy! Amubleu! Demi & Rikudo! RyRy! Richard! Greg Ayres!
Though Dizzy was only there for a day...... I still bought a Pikachu bag from her that I used to carry around all my little raver toys and goodies that I had purchased earlier in the day.... it was cool.
Demi hugged me once and that was pretty much it. Rikudo stared at me for like half a second but didn't say anything. I don't know if they had a good con but I'm really really hoping they did.
RyRy walked by and hugged me really fast. He gave me one of my first candy bracelets way back in the day and I still wear it at every rave. It meant alot to me because of how pretty he is and he still payed attention to me. (Though apparently pretty people pay alot of attention to me, my friends tell me?)
Richard is the ultimate candy raver.... and I think he's awesome. We talked (screamed?) at each other for a few minutes in the rave about our various rave accessories and we exchanged greetings in one of the corridors one day.
GREG AYRES IS THE GREATEST MAN EVER TO EXIST. THE END. I talk to him every con and we've become pretty good friends. He helped me through a bunch of hard times when I was younger even though he could have left the relation at "con fan / autograph." He found me and made sure I was alright NUMEROUS times and for that I'll forever be grateful. He probably can't fathom exactly how much.

And............. -drumroll-
(The only other person with consecutive CCF is Greg Ayres - Katsucon 05 / AMA 05)

Huntyre loves his new shirt. And his little teddy bear. He thoroughly enjoyed reading OVER AND OVER Seiji's note. He and I both have a great time standing in front of your table with all of your boys. (Don't tell Aki this but I think I caught Huntyre giving Hito a once over on a few occassions - don't tell Leiland either! ITS INNOCENT I SWEAR LOL) Whenever my friends had things to do by default I returned to your table to see if you were there. (If you weren't I ate your caramels and patted Seiji on the head....) I think you're one of the NICEST people I've ever met and you don't tell me that my doll stories are dumb...... and you LISTEN. And it's nice. I appreciate it. So thanks! I don't have a plaque or anything so I guess it's a mental award? Two time Coolest Con Friend. CONSECUTIVE.

Anyway, I'm tired and probably everyone has stopped reading at this point...... if you haven't congratulate yourself and go eat some pizza or something that you enjoy. CAUSE IT'S NICE THAT WAY.

Also, send me hate mail. Or love mail. Or indifferent mail. (or an indifferent male.... J/K MY GILLIAM WOULD BE VERY PISSED IF HE HEARD ME SAY THAT.....)

k well goodnight. 

Where they're put into boxes made of ticky tack.....
..... and they come out all the same.

I'm staying home today. I got Weeds seasons 1-5 on blu-ray on sale on Black Friday and I'm going to spend the day watching the rest of season 3..... I've watched ALOT OF THIS SHOW.

I think I'm in love with Shane Botwin. He's more intelligent than me.... but I'm not sure how much. I'll have to dig up his wiki page later. I'm guessing he's like 17 or 18 now....? WUTEV I DON'T CARE HE'S GREAT. I simply enjoy that the kid is the most intelligent of them all.

His vocabulary makes me SHUDDER. Yes... turned on by good grammar and sentence structure. What a lame-o kid I am. So lame that I think I'm going to get one of his quotes put onto a doll t-shirt. YES THAT LAME ITS OK THOUGH I LOVE MYSELF.

Well, I'm going to attempt to order some Chinese food. I'll probably fail. I'll just eat some socks.


You don't believe in God...
.... I don't believe in luck.

Wow. It's been soooo long since I've even used my "el-jay".... like a week or so.

Sorry about that. I've been intending to post, honestly, I've just been wrapped up in holidays like Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Not that I like to eat that much or shop that much buuuuuutttt ...... once in a while I do like to have a good time doing BOTH of those things. This week was once in a while.

I want my doll to come in the mail. My mom is like "CALM DOWN SHE'LL BE HERE EVENTUALLY" though she's not being mean. She's just used to this behavior and I imagine her putting up with my waiting would be similar to putting up with sticking a hand in a garbage disposal while standing in a body of water holding a fork an inch from an electrical socket. Well.... maybe not that bad.

So.... I took the first step. Baby step. I pulled my fabric out and unwound a teeny bit of it. LIKE MAYBE A FOOT. Then I freaked out and stuffed it under my bed. It wasn't a baby step from a functional baby but it was still a step..... oh well. I'm warming up to the idea of failure a bit anyway. I'll see where my recent fabric phobia will take me. Hopefully somewhere overcast with boys on skateboards.

No. That'll never happen. Skateboarders need sunlight. Not cloudlight.

Well, goodbye! Love you guys!

Killjoys, make some noise.

1) Saw Smile Empty Soul in concert. There were like 24 or 25 people there which REALLY UPSET ME BECAUSE THIS BAND GOT NATIONAL RADIO PLAY FOR YEARS. I was one of like two ACTUAL fans there. I was front center (which wasn't hard because I mean, how many people would I have had to fight? NONE.) Sean (the lead singer) took requests from me and the other boy ALL NIGHT. He was like 'it's all about YOU tonight.' to us. It was really nice. That boy and I alternated picking their ENTIRE setlist.

After the concert he came out and said hello to the two of us and took pictures with us and signed cd's and things. He also told us that if 'it weren't for the two of you singing your hearts out and appreciating the music' that 'we would have had a miserable night' but 'you made our Sunday.' 

It was great to hear all of those nice things but I felt bad because I can't imagine playing to an empty room when you're a decently popular band. They were sweethearts though. Look them up on Youtube, give them a listen. You may remember their first single 'Bottom of a Bottle' from 2003. If you don't, trust me, you've probably heard it. Anyway.

2) The new MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE CD CAME OUT TODAY OMFG AFTER FOUR YEARS MY FAVORITE BAND IN THE ENTIRE WORLD FINALLY HAS A NEW CD. Ok fanboy rant is DONE FOR NOW. When I grow up i want to be as attractive as ANY MEMBER OF THAT BAND. Seriously. It's a fun cd. Especially 'Planetary (GO!)' and 'Destroya'

Ok other than that. I'm waiting on my Dollmore Flocke to show up. She won't be here for like a billion more years but I'm like 'awww my first girl doll ever' ITS SO CONFUSING I SWEAR TO GOD. What do I even do with a girl doll? I won't want to put different clothes on her AT ALL. God, girls scare me so badly. (except the girls on my friend's list. I'm not terrified by you guys....)

ALSO I WANT TO WRITE BUT JESUS ITS HARD. Who wants to hear a few excerpts? These are all by Huntyre, my narrator (you can see him in my profile avatar ^__^ THAT'S HUNTYRE.)

"He got a bit closer to me and I turned my head towards the closet door. I couldn't look at him if he was that close to me. I'd probably drool or something stupid like that."

"And of course, I hoped he would leave it at that and we'd go watch a movie or something because I was new to this 'conversation' thing. I hadn't really thought to rehearse lines in the mirror before I confessed my feelings for him."

"I've never seen time move more slowly. I waited, waited, waited - watching the second hand. Tock. Tick. Tock. Tick. TOCK. TICK. Repeatedly. If I hadn't already decided that I was insane, I'm sure the fervent passion of the clock's hatred toward me would have driven me that way. I decided it was personal and had I been an adult, the clock would have been much, much, MUCH nicer towards me."

"I knew I wasn't great at hiding myself, but I didn't know I had been THAT obvious. He laughed again and I felt the raging urge in my stomach to throw up on the floor."

"It was the small talk that interested me most. I enjoyed watching him form his words. He occasionally had to brush his long hair out of his face before he could finish speaking. I tended to giggle when that happened."

"In all my fourteen years I had learned that it was probably best to admire from afar anyway. The reason? Unless someone asked directly you could always pretend you were looking at something else if your eyes were intercepted."

OK SO THERE ARE SOME LINES FROM MY BOOK. They probably all sound really stupid. Whatever. Gimme feedback if you'd like. You DONT HAVE TO BUT IT'D BE NICE. I know I'm not giving much to work with I know.

It's getting hard to keep pretending...

.... I'm worth your time.

I'm only updating this journal tonight because I feel SUPER accomplished. I sat down yawning at my computer desk and was like "I SHOULD BE DOING SOMETHING FOR MY STORY AND MY CHARACTERS." At first I got up and decided to go to bed but then I kicked myself in the butt and was like "NO GO WRITE." and I did.

I actually knocked out 2.5 pages which doesn't sound like alot but for me when I'm dead tired.... well, I'm proud of myself.

If only I could start sewing AND writing I'd feel yippee skippee for days. I'm gonna ask my mommy when she gets a chance if she'll show me some basic sewing things tooooo. She made me this BEAUTIFUL PURPLE PILLOW AND BLANKET SET FOR MY DOLLS LAST YEAR FOR CHRISTMAS. I almost died. It was wonderful.

Anyway I am super tired but I wanted to stop by and say hello before I felt like a jerk. Today was the first day I didn't update since I started doing LJ again. I'm kinda disappointed in myself for that but oh well. It's not like I'm THAT loved anyway. ^__^

Talk to you guys later! Jakob, I hope your tunic is getting worked on!!! ^__^ I'm looking forward to seeing it!!


It was magic at first....
....when they spoke without sound.

I am so mad. I've never slept so long IN MY LIFE. I was writing last night and trying to study and everything else and I didn't fall asleep until like 4am. I ONLY GOT LIKE THREE MORE PAGES TO MY STORY DONE.

That's ok. Today is a new day. I'm going to help my mom clean up a room or something then I'm gonna hang out with my friends. I wanted to have a day to do doll-stuff but eh, apparently that ISN'TEVERGOINGTOHAPPEN. (Oh yes it's my own fault for sure. I could just cancel the plans that were made for me but wutev, that's so not me.)

I appreicate all of the helpful advice you guys have given me regarding sewing. Amubleu and Jakob_Grimm... you guys are AWESOME. AND I HOPE I SPELLED YOUR NAMES RIGHT BECAUSE OTHERWISE WHAT A TOOL I AM. So yeah, I'm going to Dollar Tree first. I never poke my head in there because it's very scary to me, but eh, I do what I have to do and I'm trying to find something for someone. If I can't find it there I'm going to turn to Party City or shopping online.

I really don't want to ride to Party City today. It's too far away. I can probably walk to Dollar Tree..... will that happen though? Probably.

Well this has to be a short entry because I have things to do for the first time ever.


If I was bored you know that I would.....
..... and if I was yours - but I'm not.

Those are just lyrics, no one WORRY. I'm GOOD, I'M FINE. Anyway... I was sitting around today and started having a great conversation about my plans and my future and all of these things I'm probably too young to think about and it hit me - I'm going TO LEARN HOW TO SEW.

I think I want to.
And that's why I chose the song I chose to listen to while I type up this entry. 'READY TO START' by the Arcade Fire. I normally CANNOT STAND THIS BAND, but this song is just PERFECT. I mean, it has nothing to do with learning how to sew or really with any emotion that I'm on the same level with but yeah. It just makes me smile. In a dark way.

I just don't know where to begin. I tried looking on DoA for like... pattern making advice and stuff but it's hard. I've NEVER picked up a needle and thread before except this one time I tried to make a pillow and even THAT failed ten shades of awful..... BUT... well, no... it failed. I was going to think of a positive but there isn't one. The pillow sucked big.

I look at the clothes people like poisonbleu and the Dizziness make and I'm just astounded at their level of intelligence and creativity and I feel as if I have NO outlet. Sure, I write a story but I can't like.... dress my doll in that. I don't know.... -pout- THIS CUTE FACE SHOULDN'T BE POUTING SO WHY AM I?

Any advice? anyone? -sigh-


"The business men drink my blood like the kids in art school said they would...."

Leiland Gareth Tolo (Picture post)

ok SO THE QUALITY ISN'T GREAT. But I didn't promise quality, I just promised a doll..... You'll have to forgive how the pictures look cause (TIME FOR EXCUSES JOSHIE!) my camera battery was steadily dying AND it was like 3am when I was taking them. (AND I HAVE POOR LIGHTING IN MY ROOM.) I only have one lamp and it's all the way on the other side of my rather large room. I really should invest in better lighting.

Ok I had originally planned on leaving Leiland in the yellow underwear because I like it so much (I got it from Dizzy if anyone knows her.... she's ON DoA and she goes to lots of cons...) but then I happened to pull out some of my older doll clothing on accident and look at it for a few minutes and I had an idea to make an outfit. And no, the outfit ISN'T great. ACTUALLY IT SUCKS A LITTLE BIT BUT I LIKE IT SO SHUUUSSHHH UP YO FACE.

So there's a little block of doll pictures. He's a Homme Ducan from Dream of Doll and his name is Leiland Gareth Tolo.... I'll do more in depth character analysis when I'm ACTUALLY not doing a test run of this journal and pictures...

WELL BAI FOR NOW I LOVE YOU ALL. Feel free to leave comments as long as you don't intentionally make me cry. K THNX.

Stuffems to dooo and/or enjoy.
Today was boring. Duhhhhh.

Dexter is YUMMY this season.... and I like it. I'm getting nervous like I always doooo near the end of the season.

I'm going to nap a bit then I'm going with the bestie <3 to see Scott Pilgrim vs The World in theaters AGAIN. This is the 5th time and I'm like OMG YAY I LOVE YOU YOUNG NEIL AND STEPHEN STILLS. They are my favvieeessssss foreveer. Anyone else seen it? It's A GOOD MOVIE I SWEAR TO YOU LOLOL.

I have pictures of dolls for later but I gotta remember how to upload with my camera. Maybe then someone will be like 'oh hey DOLLS' if I do. Does anyone even like me anymore? -sigh- it's all good. I'm sure I'm super loved.

p.s. Leiland looks great in yellow underwear. That's one of the pictures I'll show later! Stay tuned!

Since when?
Today I spent a good amount of time with my bestie. <3 He's SUCH a nice boy.

Though all we really did was watch football (eh? I know RIGHT WTF?) I think it's my one guyish thing that I enjoy.... BUT I like the Dolphins and that's like the lamest girliest animal ever so I don't feel that bad about it.... DOLPHINS 4SRS ARE SO CUTE. Anywho.

We also ate nachos from Moes. They were good but I hate going into Moes because the manager there is like ubergay and he ALWAYS stares me up and down for like.... the ENTIRE time I'm in there. Normally I just cling to my bestie so he'll get the idea that seriously... NO. Never. He's like fifty and balding and... has missing teeth and he doesn't even APPEAR to be a gay man at all.... BUT I'm really good friends with the lesbian manager lady and she tells me that he is AND (GET THIS) that he "loves it when I come in so he has something to think about later." WTF.

Seriously - little boy squick face is being made by me. Little innocent boy squick face. Please old man, I'm too young for anything you have planned - at least, too young for YOU. God, gross. How do I politely tell him "STOP THINKING ABOUT ME AND STARING AT MY CROTCH." Then again, he never makes me pay for sour cream or my drink so I guess I should just accept it and keep going. I'll get far in life that way yeah?

Oh well, it's a hazard of being effing adorable. Not that I'm arrogant or anything. I'm just almost used to it by now.

Other than that I took a nap on the sofa and I woke up and was like "OMG ITS 8PM" and now I'm slightly annoyed by my day in general. -UGH- I think I'm going to dress Leiland (my Homme Ducan) in his yellow underwear and see how he looks. That will cheer me up some, yeah? I hope so.

I like everyone on my friends list. Bunches. Bai!!
