Big black ball

Last night Dahlia and I watched the world premiere of the movie version of Gantz.

I was worried there would be a lot of people, so I showed up an hour early. This was totally unnecessary, as the theater eventually had about 20 people in it. Dahlia was very kind not to poke fun at me for this.

She sat down, and looked at me very seriously as she said "I have a confession. I've never read the manga or watched the anime."
I laughed, because I hadn't either.

All I knew about this movie going in was
A) Gantz is INCREDIBLY VIOLENT, and
B) Nino-kun.

Mostly spoiler-free review and ramblingsCollapse )
At the end, Nino asked for everyone to come see part II, and said he and Mat-chan would endeavor to speak more English next time. "But if it doesn't work out... gomen ne~? ♥" and I swear you could HEAR THE HEART MARK.


Nino: "That photo in the old album was actually me. I was around 12."
Me: "Oh god. I think I remember when he was 12."
Dahlia: "... ... and now you're on a list."

GOTTTTTH PONCHOOOOOO

I'm torn-- do I put a hood on it? The sketches don't have a hood, only the belted neck-kerchief thing. But then when he's being "I'M SO EMO, DON'T LOOK AT ME", he suddenly pulls up a hood. C'mon, Noir, ANGST with some consistency.
(I'm thinking about making the back of the neck...kerchief...thing a hood. Because that makes it unnecessarily complicated, which is apparently my Letter Bee Cosplay requirement.)

Progress photoCollapse )

I was watching episodes of Reverse while working, but the Tegamidan storyline is coming to a climax and I love the crap out of that fight. So I'll give it my full, sobbing attention. Damn you, Conner D:

As an apology to Ringo and Dahlia who now have the GOTH PONCHO SONG in their heads, here are youtube videos of the songs Gauche's guns are named after.
Chopin's Nocturne no.20
Satie's Gymnopedie no.1
I listen to these a lot while sewing #^_^#

As per Teca's request, the Letter Bee cosplay rundown post is now unlocked. :)


Speaking of Letter Bee, Asada-sensei's artbook comes out in March, and then a non-Bachi book in April. I WILL BUY THEM BOTH. TWICE.
(I still desperately want an art print of his Nakahara Chuya painting. I will settle for buying an extra copy of the artbook and slicing it out.)

Goth Poncho is cut out! (I am going the "Unnecessarily Complicated" route, by adding in a double-breasted closure, and slices for armholes.) Time to make some grey sueded bias tape, because I LIKE PUNS. ALSO, TRAGEDY.

Taking a break from my usual costume stuff (gottthhhhh ponchooooo), I decided to tailor my Luna Sea concert hoodie.

Big hoodie is big!

By the time I got to the front of the merch counter, they only had Large-sized hoodies left. I bought it anyway, but it swims on me, and not really in a "Cute Oversized" sort of way. More in the "I'm hiding a pregnancy" sort of way. Comfy, but I'm going to wear the shit out of this! Let's slim it up.

Project under the cutCollapse )
Fun easy project, and it only took a few episodes of 30 Rock to accomplish. Love you, Luna Sea!

Luna Sea at the Palladium

LUNA SEA AT THE PALLADIUM

You guys. You guys. I can't. even. say.

I have been dreaming of this concert for over a decade. I have a savings account named "Luna Sea Emergency Fund". I love these guys so hard. I still can't believe they came to America, and I got to be a part of it.

Post Concert
Special thanks to MAC for their very excellent makeup that didn't budge when I cried, and also the red lips that allowed me to have eye-sex with J for the entire concert.

Little vacation write-up, with lots of Me Freaking OutCollapse )
The ConcertCollapse )

I'm still totally joygasm-high, and next time I will wear a wedding dress to the concert so J knows my intentions are clear. Yes. That is a good, sane decision. [nod nod]

TOTALLY CALM

I'm intentionally avoiding any news from the Luna Sea show in Germany, I don't want to know what they're performing before Saturday <3

(...and please don't tell me anything <3)

Having been lucky enough to see Sugizo live twice, I think THE PLAN is to aim for Inoran & J's side of the stage. I love you, Sugizo, but I will never be closer to you than I was at the Juno Reactor concert, and that's okay.

Now I will WILDLY SPECULATE
(but mostly rant)

I AM TOTALLY CALM AND MATURE ABOUT THISCollapse )

I will probably get arrested for public indecency. Please hold a bake sale to raise bail money for me. Thanks guys. <3

Rambling for Teca since she asked:

Breakdown of my Tegami Bachi uniformCollapse )

October 6th, 2010

Hooray, Tegamibachi Season 2! Reverse! Not a huge fan of the new opener (hard to follow Suga Shikao and a dreamy offering from Seira) but I liked the new ender.

CAPSLOCK SUMMARY:

ZIGGY PEPPER IS SO COOL

EVEN BY LETTER BEE STANDARDS, THERE WAS A LOT OF CRYING

THE PARTY IS STILL AWFUL. WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT. NO ONE WOULD THROW A PARTY. NO ONE.

NICHE HAS A TRULY HEARTBREAKING MOMENT INVOLVING UNDERWEAR


I still love it! This series couldn't be more perfect for me if it involved genetics and house rabbits.

And on that note, cosplay productivity!
BLACK LIKE MY SOUL
One Noir armwarmer is done! (Well, mostly done, I have to weave in the yarn ends, and decide if I want to put a contrast trim on there. I probably do not.) Now... to do the same thing all over again! Even though most of this will be hidden by my GOTH PONCHO with CARGO POCKETS. Yessssssss
