I hope things have been well with you since Fanime! :3 I still have the lil finger light from the rave; so i can party in my room when no one's around. thnx for being so awesome when my night was sucky. :)
things have been great! i’ve been working on thranduil for sdcc ~ but i’m glad you still have the lights! i just buy lights in bulk and give them out at every con rave. n w n;;
When I was like 5 I went to the aquarium of the pacific and I was feeding the stingrays. I think I was born to be like Haru because I fell into the tank with all those stingrays and they embraced me like he embraces the water. I was baptized by fucking sea placemats and lemme tell you I swam amongst them for like three whole minutes before someone pulled me out, I tried to get back but fate is a cruel mistress and I was separated from my true family. The end.
here goes. i decided to write up my PERSONAL EXPERIENCE with Dashcon and the people running it. i was there while Dashcon was being founded. i was the head of one of the committees and i actually got to work pretty closely with one of the co-owners. so if you wanna learn about how Dashcon was founded and the downright horrific inner workings during that time keep reading. also if you just want a good ass laugh. the owners may have changed some of the methods they were using but I must say: Dashcon is one of the most unprofessionally run events i’ve EVER seen. right from its inception it was a train wreck. [featuring skype screenshots, wow!!]
Has anyone boinked in the ball pit or in the bounce house yet?
Imagine being told by your parents that you were conceived at Dashcon.
"I remember that day, I was dressed as FTM Dean and he was a human Karkat, he seduced me with Hotel mints and took me to the ball pit. Now eat your animal by-product free peas and write me a 25 page report on your privliges, and remeber to put Trigger warnings this time."
ugh, i’m so sorry to hear that. ) : it’s very strange, because last year the staff was quite calm, so i guess they just hired some different people that need to take a course in social etiquette or something. either way, i still hope you had at least a SHRED of fun, despite all of the crap going on.
well you certainly didn’t miss much, outside of the Day 0 line being a monstrosity of Hell No. aw geez. D: well, i can understand that. big cons can get very overwhelming very easily. smaller cons like Pacific Media Expo and WonderCon are nice to go to because it’s the same con with less of the people. although with how nuts AX was this year, it’s debatable how long those small cons will stay ” small. “ i most certainly will! i haven’t been back in years ( when you could just walk up and register on site sobs ), and even if it’s become a hypefest and crowded as all hell, i always still manage to have a lot of fun.
Yo~ I'm planning on cosplaying Inumuta and I was wondering how many adapters you used for all your EL wiring as I've been trying to figure how many i'll need. ;3
the short answer is A Shit Load. xD
the technical answer is, you will need 4 for the one’s on the arms ( 1 to power each EL wire ). this is optional, and a bit less comfortable, but if you want to do EL tape ( like the ones on my legs and back cable ), that will depend on how long you want the tape sections to be and probably also dependent on your budget, cause things ad up very quickly. for the EL tape you should only use 1 inverter for every 100cm length. adafruit sells them with connectors on either end, so i just cut mine into 50cm lengths. to power all the tape sections, i’m using 6 ( the cable on the back and the thing between my legs is double sided in tape ).
you’re probably going to spend more money on batteries over all. EL wire can be powered with 2 AA batteries, and they can last for quite a while before you need to change batteries. the EL tape requires 4 AAA batteries, and eat up way more juice. i often have to change them out for fresh ones sooner.
hello I was wondering if you are the lovely jade cosplayer who I think was also one of the host that I met at skaia ball I am sara one of the volunteers who cosplayed rose
yes, i am that jade! it is me ~ n w n i apologize for getting back to you so late. i had to hurridly get myself organized for ax, but it was fantastic having you help us out this year. you and the other 3 were absolutely marvelous. <3
Got back from AX yesterday! The con itself was bits of garbage. I have stories from all over the place about how completely disorganized that damn con was ( can you say Line Con 2014? can you say last minute changes to everything without warning? can you say masquerade behind the scenes bs? ). But I also have stories about how wonderful it was thanks to the good people that went, to all of my wonderful friends, and all of the new faces I befriended as well.
Being back in old fandoms ( Hetalia, Homestuck and other fandoms with H’s ) was great now that things have calmed down, but I was mostly going for the Kill la Kill special event and it didn’t disappoint. I was way up front, probably being the most obnoxious person in that section with all the screaming I did, but I love this dumb show so much fight me.
Despite all of the fun I had, and despite how great my roomies were this year, there’s a 30% chance I’ll be going back next year. I’d rather be at Fanime ( hell yeah 24 hour con center with significantly calmer staff ), or go to the Labyrinth Ball thingy. Either way, I still had fun, but I can’t rest yet. SDCC is uncomfortably soon and all I have done for Thranduil is parts of the lining cut out. /heavy breathing my body is not ready
Took the rubber band off from around my lining for Thranduil and the shit snapped into my face and almost rocketed down my throat. I haven’t even cut the damn fabric yet can you fucking not, elf kesha istg
