Ah, such a poor neglected blog I have. If I give my layout a little face lift it will probably motivate me to update more often. It’s just so dang hard sometimes when you have all these hoppin’ social networking sites calling your name! But I will try to keep this baby going. Never gonna give up, never gonna let you down. Never gonna run around and desert you. That is my promise-ish.

Anyhoo. Remember that costume I said I was working on? Well I managed to finish it just in time for BlizzCon! I made the entire armor set and the big ass sword. I plan to do an official photoshoot for my costume, but for now, here are some of the pictures Iv’e found on the internet, taken at the convention:

Until next time. In the meantime, follow my Instagram, ya?

Oy, what’s become of me?

I once blogged here nearly every other day and it has trickled down to updating once a month. I don’t like being inconsistent like this but I am only human, and being human, I am easily distracted by other things. ¬†What other things, you ask?

1. Instagram

It’s possible that if I never signed up for an Instagram account, I’d be here on this blog more often. It’s a terrible because Instagram isn’t really for blogging either. It’s mainly for pictures and yet, it has kept from updating my blog consistently. The majority of my Instagram uploads also automatically posts to my Tumblr, and for that, I’m getting significantly more followers on both Instagram and Tumblr.

Gaining followers isn’t everything but it does give me motivation to be on those sites more often. I’ve had this blog for 5+ years and have gained a little over 100 subscribers, whereas my six-month-old Instagram profile has already gained 100+ followers.

2. Crafting armor / Cosplay!

I started cosplaying in 2009 but have only created costumes about every other year. This year and last year, I’ve been making a little more and have been enjoying every minute of it. For the current costume I’m working on, it’s going to be a little more armor-heavy and it’s my most ambitious project thus far. I hope I will be able to debut it for Blizzcon 2013. Fingers crossed!

3. Hearthstone beta

Hearthstone is an online strategy card game and it’s hella-freakin’ addictive and fun as hell. I can’t wait when this game gets released to the public because the world needs to play this.

4. Lifting weights/ Hitting the gym

I’ve recently got myself a personal trainer because I’m lazy and need a real ass-whoopin’. I’ve tried exercising in the past and have always given up after two weeks, simply because all I’ve been doing is cardio, and cardio is quite the snorefest for me. My personal trainer has introduced me to weight-lifting and I’ve been hooked on it ever since.

Grrrr, look at me, muscles!!!!

Despite all of these distractions, I don’t think I can never make myself close this blog. I’ve had it for way too long and I’ll keep it running to the end.

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.
