HOW DID I BECOME THE ENEMY?
A Fushigi Yuugi Yui Hongo Fanmix

A fanmix for Yui. The friendship that was broken, Nakago’s manipulation, working through her bitterness and sorrow, then finding her way back to her best friend.

(I did say I’d been Fushigi Yuugi nostalgic lately!)

Man, I have like three more fanmixes I need to get posted, but I haven’t had the time or motivation to make artwork for them. :/

At work, the guys just outside our office like to (loudly) listen to music that is really not my genre, so I pretty much have headphones in all day. Organizing and test-listening to fanmixes while I work keeps my playlists from getting stagnant, so I’ve finalized three more mixes if I ever get around to making artwork/tracklists for them.

I haven’t posted progress in a million years. The chain suit is finished. All I have left is finishing the leather and casting the elf ears.

You did Merrill’s full-body chain?! It looks amazing, how did you do it? It must have taken SO much time and work! Err, I should ask, is it ok to reblog this? I just wanted my followers to see it.

Thanks:D Rebloging is fine. Your followers can also see my bathroom:D
It’s taken about 2 years. There are 20,000 aluminum rings (I think it was 16 gauge but I don’t remember.) The instructions for making the sleeves and making it fitted come from here http://homepage.ntlworld.com/trevor.barker/farisles/guilds/armour/mail.htm I also used the pants pattern from the Armor Archive. http://www.armourarchive.org/essays/book__practical_chainmail/practical_chainmail.shtml

I am reblogging this version too so my followers can see it and spread it like wild fire, this took two years of sticking to it and pure dedication
I have literally never seen something more badass, I’m like in cosplay tears over it and I remember you starting this forever ago and I remember liking it back then too. It is amazing to see and I hope I get to see pictures of the final product.
Seriously well done. Oh my frick.

Falling in love with yourself first doesn’t make you vain or selfish, it makes you indestructible.

This is the timeline expressions of my day to day life decisions

So I’ve been crazy-unmotivated and lazy and just all-around “meh” lately, and I just found out why.

I had my thyroid levels checked and they were waaaay off. So they had to increase my synthroid by a lot. I’ve been changing around a bunch of meds lately in an attempt to get that chronic cough taken care of, and also starting a new birth control (oh joy of joys, boy do I love that trial-and-error rollercoaster), so apparently my hormones are just all out of whack.

I swear, my medical problems are all relatively minor on their own, but I have so many of them that managing them all without everything going haywire is like a crazy juggling act. Blergh.

Okay, just wanted to rant a bit. I feel better now.

After not winning anything at the cosplay pagent at GaymerX2 (bullshit) I undertook the task of putting my Garrett cosplay on my mannequin.

So HERE have some epic detail shots!

THAT IS SO AMAZING.

I wish there was a place to legally buy anime mp3s…

I looked all over trying to find out how to buy a digital version of the Hiiro no Kakera theme song, and no dice. I could buy a physical CD with four whole songs on it for $13 + shipping from Japan (which is not so cheap), or I can illegally dowload it from sketchy-ass torrent/”free mp3” sites that are probably full of all sorts of malware. Those are my options, and I’m not sure I like the song enough to shell out over $20 for the CD.

It’s a single from a Korean pop star, aside from just being an anime OP song, so you’d think there would be a legal way to get a digital download of a single in this day and age, but apparently not so much. Heck, I even used Google Translate to try to see if I could get it from the singer’s website.

It looks like I might be able to get it from iTunes (if I can remember my logon/pw to access the store), so I might have to go that route, even though I hate using the iTunes store for music because of the DRM… I can’t play the files on my Android phone or put them on an mp3 data CD for my car, which are really the only 2 ways I listen to most of my music. Yes, there are ways to strip the DRM from the file, but they’re annoying (and probably technically illegal) workarounds. So I stopped using iTunes in favor of Amazon a while back.

I ran into this when I was making my anime nostalgia mix on 8tracks, too… There were a couple of OP/ED songs I wanted to include that I didn’t own, and I couldn’t find anywhere to buy them.

It’s kind of sad when I’m really looking for a way to give you my money, but it just isn’t possible. :(
