End of summer

It’s over, already ! I’m starting school next Wednesday. I’m a little bit excited: this will be the first time in 8 years that I will go to school without wearing a uniform XD I have to start worrying about coordinates and such…. maybe I will have more interesting outfits to show you guys soon?

Today, my lovely co-worker offered to replace me so that I could have a day off and I had so many things planned for this blog! First, I wanted to take pictures of all my circle lenses since lot of you have been asking for clearer pictures… but foolishly, the week before, I went got gel nails! And now, I can’t put on circle lenses!

I’m so torn now… I can’t review lenses if I have these nails but at the same time they are so cute! I can’t have flashy nail art because of my work but I thought these were cute and appropriate for work… so sad…

So I met up with my friend Yeon Joon, who’s an artist because he wanted to draw me. He asked me to pick 3 colours that I liked from his pencils and I picked blue, pink and he chose yellow. He drew for maybe 50 minutes and this is the progress~

Isn’t it lovely? I wish I could draw people nicely, just like he did!! I’m still so impressed! I like how he added “Shmoo” at the top~ I didn’t even ask him to! haha

I think in my previous entry, I said I would post some pictures of my cosplay for Otakuthon but before I do so, I want to clarify some things. On the Otakuthon forums, people have been accusing me of wearing my Gypsy costume in order to attract attention on me. This upsets me a lot because this is not the reason why I chosed this costume.

I genuiely play RagnarokOnline and my character is a Gypsy!!

Isn’t it ridiculous that I have to prove that I play this game…

SO what if this costume is sexy? The only thing we can see is my stomach: my breasts are covered (and I don’t have any cleavage anyway…) and so is my butt and 85% of my legs. Next to a Yoko or a Rikku cosplay, I have more fabric on to cover myself up!

With that said, here are my favourite pictures :)

And more pictures taken by fellow co-goers…

This picture was taken by Droo, photographer for Super Kawaii Magazine, a cosplay mag. I have no idea if my picture will be published or not but still, I really like this picture!!

lol

I think this picture is pretty hilarious even tho this isn’t my best facial expression xD

pong

Btw, this is my friend Pong. He is cosplayed as a stalker, also from Ragnarok. Our friend Aya was cosplaying a prof from RO as well but he doesn’t wish to have pictures of him on my blog.

Voila! I hope you enjoyed! It was pretty long to type considering how it’s hard to type with those nails…

Yeah… I’ll go file them now…

OMG! This is an outfit post!!

I mentioned in an earlier post that I was very self conscious whenever I wore shorts because I don’t like my thighs. For this reason, I only own one pair of shorts.

I’m sorry. Owned!

I went shopping a few days ago and Simons was having a big sale and I got 2 really nice pair of shorts for 20$

This is a simple coordinate I made with one of them.

Top: Twik
Shorts: Simons
Necklace: Glow
Bag: Spring

I like these shorts a lot! Light pink and they are in linen so they are very comfortable! The necklace is from Glow, a small boutique close to Sherbrooke station where my friend used to work at. It’s a bit heavy but it’s an eye-catcher!

Right now, I’m still recovering from the long convention week-end! I’ll post more con pictures later but I wanted to share my favourite so far!

On Sunday, there was a little boy cosplaying and I asked his father if I could take a few pictures of him and he let me. He was so cute! So I asked if I could take a few pictures with him, seeing how adorable he was. Doing this attracted the crowd and people started taking pictures of this little boy and I.

His father has yet to send me those pictures but I found one on the Internet and I thought you guys would like it, considering some of my readers have kids around his age.

Isn’t he the most adorable thing in this world?

I like to see kids cosplaying! They are so cute! I would never force my children to cosplay but if they enjoy dressing up, I’ll surely bring them to cons with me!

Meeting Himeka at Otakuthon !

This entry is going to be very different from what I usually write but I wanted to share the moment that I met someone that I have a lot of respect for.

I insist on the word respect a lot because this is the feeling I have whenever I hear a song by Himeka and whenever I read news about her. I find her story to be truly inspiring; sometimes surreal!

Today, right after work, I rushed to Otakuthon to meet my friends who were in line to get Himeka’s autograph. Luckily, they had arrived early so we had the chance to see her quickly!

Unfortunately, her manager insisted on forbidding pictures to be taken but her sweetness totally made up for it!

We told her it must feel nice to speak French again and she said she was still getting confused with speaking Japanese but it indeed felt nice to be able to speak and hear French again. She seemed really happy!

The whole time, she was smiling and very warm!

Himeka

Isn’t her signature so nice? She spent a lot of time signing each photo so nicely!

Himeka, thank you so much for your kindness~
