EDIT: Duuude! Sorry if this triple posted for anyone! I guess I've never unchecked "feature" before, and when I did and it didn't show up on my page I re-uploaded and then saw it later like 3 times. >_<
How is everyone's May? Happy Early Mother's Day to all the awesome moms out there!!
First off, random artsy question:
Is there a site out there for artists that do artist alley that's like cosplay.com for cosplayers? I guess it'd be more like a "networking/here's what conventions I'll be at" type of thing plus a huge forum with threads dedicated to artist alleys for specific conventions or how-to dos. I was just thinking about it last week and thought it'd be neat-o. ^.^ Of course, a lot of that info can be found out there, but still. What say you?
Secondly, the manga "Monster" by Naoki Urasawa is going to be a live action series!! XD Guillermo del Toro is working with HBO on a pilot. I'm still finishing the series, but so far it's so good. I love the art, suspense, and drama.
So far, the month has started out quite well. Today I went to a museum with and afterwards we frolicked amongst the roses in the big garden out front. It's like we were at Highgarden!
I finally took part in Free Comic Book Day on May 4th. (Although I kind of forgot it was Star Wars Day lol) I ended up getting 3 free comics and buying 2 extra for 50 cents. The only downside was that it took 2 hours to get them. It seemed like such a short line too. >_< I think it was the comic book/movie chatter and purchasing/selecting going on all in front of one register that caused it. They also ran out of some of the comics I really wanted to get, but I'm definitely still glad I checked it out. Just gotta get there earlier next time! On a side note, I visited another comic book store the other day and picked up issue 1 of "Batman: Li'l Gotham" by artist/writer *duss005 and co-writer Derek Fridolfs. It's super cute and done in watercolor, so yeah. Awesome. It was and still is released online, but the first printed issue is now out and contains two stories centered around Halloween and Thanksgiving.
I also got 2 issues of Ame-Comi Girls since my friend and I were just talking about the figurines and their costumes. (the figurines are based on female DC characters with re-designed costumes and an anime flair. I think they made girl versions of some of the dudes too. The comics feature these characters fighting crime) Anyhoo, it was crazy good timing and I'm going to mail them to her. Unfortunately, I totally got the wrong issues. They said 1 and 2, but I guess two was part of a Batgirl series and one was part of the group series. Weird! The story and some of the art didn't particularly grab me, but at least there's good costume ref! I did like the Duela Dent character though.
Anyone watching new anime? I think the only show I'm gonna try to keep track of is Attack on Titan even though I'm 2 episodes behind. lol. I think it's interesting and for some reason we keep finding little things that probably shouldn't be considered funny, but are. btw, can't wait for Swimming Anime!!
In the meantime, I've got to finish cosplay stuff for Fanime. I'm doing a group cosplay where we're all dressing up as Vegeta in his pink shirt/yellow pants outfit. LOL. and figured out how to do the hair and sent me the pieces to assemble. It's gonna be crazy. XD
Also, need to finish writing many many many belated notes to people and review Anatomy, Physio and dosage calculations for nursing school in the fall. I am excited and fearful. ^^
Time has passed me once again! I need to be way more productive before school starts to finish the things I want to finish before then, but it never seems to happen or when it does, I end up taking too long of a break to recover from my hard work. As they say in Insanity, I need to "dig deeper".
