Ahahahaha my dad just called me up asking when and where Comic Con takes place because he wants to see the Big Bang Theory panel. Now, I know my dad has never been a social geek (as in, his family are rednecks, so if he had ever dressed up as a Star Trek ensign or somesuch, he could have gotten his ass kicked) but. Really. Comic Con. He heard a report about Comic Con on the radio last year. He heard how much people go to it. Did he really think it would be possible to get tickets more then, like, a year in advanced?

I feel bad for laughing at him, but it just makes me giggle. Though, now he's considering taking me next year? Which would be cool, but I'd be really tempted to cosplay all weekend, and that would just be weird with my dad around. I'm a casual nerd compared to a lot of my friends, but I'm a lot more active and proud of my nerd status then he is.

On an unrelated note, I hate the people who live in the room above me. They're constantly sliding furniture across the floor, and I swear, they have sex like twice a day. At least that's what it sounds like. thunk-thunk-thunk-thunk-thunk. ALL. THE. TIME. I haaaate it. I've spoken to the RA on that floor, and there response was pretty much 'duuuurp i can't do anythiiiing about iiiiitt'. AAAAAAAUGH. I, like... want to download the bassy 70s porn music (of the 'bow chicka wow-wooooow' variety) on my iPod and then play it on my portable speakers right outside their door. Very, very loudly.

Sooo, I went to a con a few weeks back. And I completely forgot to post any of my photos of it until one of [livejournal.com profile] cloudsnapper's posts today kinda reminded me. So here they are!

Huh. Wow, I haven't posted in a while. And I haven't really had time to do the arts stuff. But, um, rambling time?

This week has been a pretty fantastic week. It was spirit week at school, and we had some pretty interesting themes. Lets see, they were: 50s day, Superhero day, Disney day, Rave day, and School Color day. I've never done spirit week before, but this time I did, and it was a lot of fun! Monday I dressed up like James Dean, Tuesday I made myself a Batman Beyond shirt, Wednesday I was Disney's Mulan (complete with Little Dragon as Mushu :3) Thursday I got to wear my old parachute-type pants, and today my hair is purple. Fun times!

My weekend is going to be crazy busy, though, because I'm going to Nan Desu Kan. I'll be there this evening, most of the day on Saturday, and probably Sunday morning. Saturday is also my school's homecoming parade, and I'm going to be riding the band/choir float dressed in a marching band uniform and carrying my saxaphone. So... busy, but a fun kind of busy.

Also, today is my dad's 54th birthday. He's spending it off in the mountains, fishing by himself, as he has for the past few years. He's one of the coolest people I know, and I hope he'll live another 54 years. (I'm sure he will, he's really healthy)

Oh, and as for T9 - I'll still have access to a computer, so I should be able to post their at least a few times over the weekend. And the hotel the con is at has wifi, so I'm going to take my DS and finally get to do some online pokemon playin'!

A friend of mine bought me a pikachu DS stylus. I made them a mew and mudkip watercolor wall hangers as a thank you.

Oof, life is... beating me senseless. This week has been pretty busy, and it's only going to get worse. Didn't help that most of sunday and monday were spent bent over the porcelain god, puking my brains out. That's how stressed I am - I'm actually sick.

There have been a few silver linings, however. On monday, after a very long wait at the DMV, I went to Target to look for decent nerf/water guns as props in my group's con costumes. I found a large six shot revolver that kind of looks like Hellboy's Big Baby, and a large gun based on military assault rifles. I was also wanting to give one of our people a red lightsaber (she is just that evil), so I went looking for one. I was going to just buy one of the cheap little kid ones, but I saw that a spring-loaded Vader lightsaber that lit up and made noises was on sale. So I had to buy it. And while this person in my group can use it during the con, there is no way I'm giving it away. Not at all.

Later today I'm going to go talk to my potential boss. I need her to know that there is a lot of stuff going on with me this semester, and if I can get my work schedule to fit to it, I won't be able to work for her.

Another going away gift, this time, for my English teacher. That man's a total Batman fanboy, so I thought this would fit.

So, part of my costume for Nan Desu Kan is the infamous turtle helmet. I went by the Army surplus store to see if I could find a decent helmet that I could modify. I didn't expect to find anything that would work, and I thought I might have to order something. (And, if worst came to worst, I'd use a construction helmet)
But, it turns out that I found the perfect helmet! It's a toy helmet, for hallowe'en costumes and stuff, but it's the perfect size and shape for the turtle. I do need to do some stuff to make it just right, though. And that includes;
- repainting it, so that it is a turtle shell, instead of crappy forest camo
- replacing the dinky plastic straps with leather straps and an actual buckle
- and making the turtle head and feet

I'll probably post pictures as I work on it, so look for those! :3

I don't do much of this generic fantasy stuff any more, but a friend asked me to draw a girl with long hair. They get an elf chick.

I'm now official registered for NAN DESU KAN! I'm going to be in a fair sized group, and we'll have some cool costumes. But since we're still in the planning stage, and the con isn't until September, I'll talk more about that later.

Helped out as a Junior Escort for graduation last night. I got to wear a killer tux (cell phone photo, hence the suckage). It was... okay, but the loooong. And kind of depressing - it's an inner city school and we only graduated 137 people this year. Oi.

My last final (French) is tomorrow. Wish me luck!
