“Geez, Tiff, the only time you update your blog is when you want something!”

The entire Dolly Dynamite store

I enjoy being Asian and looking like one. This online store has practically been calling out to me to buy more of its ridiculously adorable clothes and shoes! Ugh, so cute.

Classy, vintage-style clothing

When I’m not dressing up in a cute kitty sweater with a cute pair of kitty stockings, I’m typically in more a retro get-up because I love looking like a lady (sometimes I end up looking like an old lady, but whatevz).

ULTIMATE GEEK GAMER GIRL GEAR

Ok but seriously though, sometimes you don’t care about looking super fabulous and you just want to relax and wear a t-shirt and baseball cap to cover your oily hair that you haven’t washed in weeks–while representing the video games (and YouTube channel) you love.

And more things! >_<

Here are a few more random things that don’t quite fit the categories above…


Hologram top and skirt: I’m not quite entirely sure where I would wear this too, but I do know that I need a hologram outfit.

Kitty Anatomy: Jason Freeny is an incredible artist that tends to make really beautiful figurines that suits my twisted taste.

The cutest glasses ever: This is made by SEE Eyewear, my #1 favorite brand for glasses. I really want the first frame on the left!

Fancy running shoes: My current Nike shoes are ripped up and has holes in them. I must upgrade to a fancy running shoe. It’s the only way.

The most amazing sunglasses ever: There are no words for me to describe how much I adore these sparking shades.

My work flew me to Orlando Florida this past weekend to work the booth at AFO for the first time. It was my first time going to an out-of-state convention and I’m glad I went because it’s just really different compared to the west coast conventions that I usually attend.

The main thing is everybody is just so damn nice and friendly here–including the volunteer staff, attendees and other dealers. Also, raving is a little more popular there that the convention actually hosted a rave after-party. On Saturday, during the first half of the convention, a lot of the kids dressed up in their anime cosplays, and then towards the last half of the day, a lot of them changed into their vibrant and bright raving attire. Boy did this seem a little foreign to me.

I’ve always posted pictures of other people’s cosplays but I think I should mix it up and post their rave clothing:

Woo, it’s a whole ‘nother world out there.

As for me, I wasn’t really interested enough to go. I went back to my hotel and took mirror pictures instead. Ahah.

Woo, we have a lot of catching up to do. I hate neglecting my blog like this because then I’d have to try to cram everything into one entry. Ew, messy! But this is what happens when you take up a lot of hobbies and you have a cool job that sends you to different states for conventions every other week. Last July, I worked at two local-ish conventions.

The first convention was Anime Expo, let me show you some pictures!

Next, was the usual San Diego Comic-Con. Luckily, I had the weekend off so I was able to dress up in the costume I made and watch cool panels.

Last Feburary (damn that was long ago), I made you guys guess which character I was going to cosplay in this image:

Untitled-3

Now can you guess which one I ended up picking? 😉

Here I am in my Gloomy Bear kigurumi, which I bought at Anime Expo and decided to wear for SDCC.

Dammnit, I love bears. Hmmm…sounds like somebody needs to update their layout/header again, amirite?

For this month of August, I am flying out to two other conventions. Hopefully, I will be better at updating them separately instead of cramming them all into one entry.

Until next time, I miss my blogger friends!
