Happy Halloween

I hope you all had a great Halloween. I went to a HUGE Halloween fair. I'm not really into candy, but I loved taking pictures! I should have taken more, but most of them turned out bad, and I gave up trying to take pictures after the first 3 hours or so. (it was from 5-9) 

But first a picture of my Barriss Costume: I debated about this for a while, and then I just went with broadcasting my paranoia to the whole world.

Censor bar! :D If you magnify, it says "hi." From this picture you can deduce-
I am roughly the size and shape of a human female.
I have a white wall.

But seriously, I loved my costume. Though at the fair people kept stepping on it! I drew Barriss's tattoos with Sharpie and eyeliner. I'm curiously obsessed with the ones on my hands. I haven't washed them off yet!

These are pics from the fair. I saw at least 5 Darth Vaders, two Jango Fetts(the cheap cloth kind) and 10 clone troopers(the cheap cloth kind with the plastic helmet.) And my brothers claim to have seen one TCW Anakin Skywalker with the cloth face. Scaryyyy.... 

Otherwise I just took pictures of people I knew and things that interested me:
 This is one seriously dedicated Commander Fox fan. If the helmet doesn't fit, wear it as a hat!

 I don't know if she's in Padme's picnic gown or something else.

This guy had a real plastic Gree costume. And blaster! Nice departure from the cheap-cloth variety. I didn't get to talk to him though.

Look at this!
(collective Awwwwww...)
Poor kids, though.

This Jedi looked really creeped out when I took his picture. And all the times I saw him after that. I guess he thought I was stalking him or something.

 A blond Leia. Her costume was beige rather than white, but good try.

Most of the pictures I took didn't turn out very well, but whatever! How was your Halloween? :D


  1. It's kind of hard to see the costume, but from the looks of it, you did an awesome job! Congrats!

    Now if only I could make a Quinlan Vos or Kyle Katarn costume with the same amount of quality...

    Oh, and those pics are fine. Funny too. I especially like the one with the guy who's wearing the kid's clone helmet on his head. Classic! :P

  2. That Commander Fox guy is awesome! :D
    At my church's harvest festival, we had ONE Star Wars person....a little kid who was dressed up as Rex. I freaked out when I saw him. "Finally! A Star Wars character!"
    His dad said, "Yeah....we're all Star Wars fans at our house."
    "Me too!"
    He looked a little surprised at my sudden outburst of fanness. (That is now a word)

    Of course, as we're driving home, I see two brothers out trick-or-treating in our neighborhood; one's Vader and the other's a Jedi. :3

Ciel Phantomhive vs. Artemis Fowl

Don't laugh. XD
The similarities between the two characters are so distinct and obvious that comparison is inevitable for anyone who's read/watched both series. I seriously thought when I first noticed Black Butler(more popularly referred to as Kuroshitsuji) that it was literally an anime adaption of Artemis Fowl.  Other people have read Artemis Fowl and thought "CIEL HAS A CLONE??!?"
So I thought I'd outline some of the differences and analyze who would win. XD
Appearance:  This is the first similarity, and one of the most major, because if they didn't look so darn alike I don't think the comparison would have been as striking. The above picture of Artemis is a fanart, because there aren't really any good pictures of Artemis, and the manga style makes it more obvious. They are both from the British Isles and have black hair and blue eyes. Both of them lose/change/switch an eye resulting in two different colors. 
Circumstance: They both s…

Anime, Fruits Basket, and Crushes on Fictional Characters

from left to right: Kyo, Shigure(top), Tohru(holding cat), and Yuki.

I recently started watching my first anime EVER, Fruits Basket(フルーツバスケットFurūtsu Basuketto?).
Here is the summary:
After the death of her mother, young Tohru Honda has been secretly living on her own in a tent. Her life changes forever when she stumbles upon the secret of the Sohma family, whose land she has been living on. They are afflicted by a Hereditary Cursethat changes some members of the family into animals of the Eastern Zodiac when they are hugged by someone of the opposite sex that is not also a Zodiac member.
Now living with three of the Sohma family, every day is an adventure for sweet Tohru, as she gets to know all of the very different family members better, in both common and bizarre situations. But, the Sohma family curse is certainly no laughing also holds horrible cruelty and heartbreak. Despite this, the members of the Sohma family find a new peace thanks to the presence of Tohr…

updates on life(aka excuses to post tumblr gifs)

If I had to describe my life in one word right now, it'd be cold. Brr.

Let's see..what's happening?

I got my back bend kickover from le ground in acro. It's awesome. :) I never thought I'd be able to do it XD

Of course, it's not with straight legs(yet). And I don't hit my splits in the middle. Come to think of it, it's actually sort of a back flop-over.

I read Skeleton Key and Eagle Strike(next two Alex Rider books) last night. The series has gotten better, but it still has the same problems. Just like Suzanne Collins makes the simplest events seem chilling and scary, the numerous random deaths in Alex Rider are just like "meh...whatever."

They all still have similar plots. Such as:

1. The book opens with some sort of mysterious circumstance. Usually an assasination or an exchange where one of the members gets stabbed in the back(sometimes literal, sometimes not) and killed. Either way, someone usually dies.
2. Alex Rider is hanging out drinkin…
