micaturtle: (Importants!)
Blah. I've been feeling really out-of-sort lately. (like this whole last week or so) It's a strange feeling... Whenever I try to read fanfic (something I usually enjoy doing immensely) I get distracted and just don't feel like reading it. :\ I'm not sure what it is... burnout of some sort maybe? (Even though I don't know WHY I'd be burned out, I haven't been reading any more or any different types of fanfic than I usually read.) I've also been feeling that way about my job, like I just don't wanna do it, and also about a lot of other things in my life. *sai* I hope it's just a temporary thing and I can snap out of it. :P

Thankfully, TODAY the "funk cloud" I've been moping around in seems to have lifted a bit. (Again, not sure why, but it's appreciated.) So at least I've felt motivated enough to write this LJ entry. So that's good I guess.

Jenn, Mandy Anne, & I are going to Convergence, a sci-fi convention in Minneapolis, this weekend. :D It's going to be fun (I'm starting to get excited about it, but like I said it's hard with the funk I'm in lately. Which is strange because usually I'm MEGAexcited about cons.)

Jenn, Mandy Anne, [livejournal.com profile] moronqueen, & I are going to do the sexy turtles cosplay again on Saturday XD It's going to be a lot of fun, I hope. I think it will be better this time because since the Con isn't as huge as NYCC, we can stay together as a group more. (It's *TOTALLY* a costume that needs to be done as a group.)

I'm thinking of pulling out my red Loli dress (or maybe my purple one) and just going as a normal lolita on Friday. Hmmm....
micaturtle: (sexy turtle)
Here is the writeup about Saturday!! This is the day we all dressed up as sexy ninja turtles. It was made of AWESUHM! :D
Sunday MIGHT be posted tomorrow, but I can't promise, as I am not finished writing it (okay, so I lied when I said I was completely done with my writeup) Hopefully if I don't get it posted tomorrow, I'll get it finished by the end of the weekend (although I don't know, I tend to be notoriously lazy on weekends)
And *MAYBE* I'll have a sexy girl!Mikey icon by then. I just have to remember to ask/beg/cajole [livejournal.com profile] soliloquy into making one for me :D
Finally, as before, I will reward all people who read thru this posting (or actually, anyone who clicks on the lj-cut and goes and looks) with a fun TMNT piccy! XD

"I wanted to pass this word along as Kevin has replied about NYC Comic Con.
Quote from: Kevin Eastman
Hi Michele,
Thanks for your note and I hope all is great with you! Sorry I won't get to see you guys in NYC for this con, I had a scheduling conflict once they changed the show dates, and we are not able to attend. Please extend my apologies to any of my fans you see at the show or might be coming.
Talk to you soon!
Best, Kevin
So sadly Kevin will not be at NYC Comic Con this year."

NOEEEEEZZZ!!! *sobs quietly because she is at work* This *TOTALLY* sucks! I have sent Kevin my own message to ask him what's up with that, but I'm pretty sure it's true if Ives is telling us. This changes some stuff about NYCC, tho:
+ I am going to put the Venus costume back into the cosplay box, because she's TOTALLY not worth the aggravation and humiliation if Kevin's not going to be there.
+ I REALLY wish I had known this earlier because if I had, I would have made more of an effort to make it to San Diego Comic Con. :p
+ I *REALLY* wanted him to see Jenn & my new tattoos.
+ Also I knew he would have been one of the ones who would have highly appreciated the sexy ninja turtle group. *sai*

*sai* I feel like SUCH a drama whore because I know that I shouldn't be actually CRYING about this, but it makes me REALLY disappointed! *sai*

Well if I'm not doing Venus on friday, then do you guys think I should do Mikey lolita, or just no cosplay at all? :\

I'm getting stoked for New York City Comic Con. It's gunna be a BLAST this year. I got the maths all figured outs! :D

EEEEE!! Remember this meme? [livejournal.com profile] geaven's present arrived yesterday! She sent me two necklaces, and THEY ARE AWESOME!! :D She sent me two necklaces! One for me, and one for Jenn ([livejournal.com profile] soliloquy) Due to my inability to read (apparently) I gave Jenn the red one and kept the green one, even tho she meant for it to be the other way around. Jenn informed me of my error when she read the postcard, but she liked the Red one better, so she kept that one :D It was an awesome highlight to my day! It was so awesome of her to send an extra one along for Jenn! GEAVEN ROCKS!!! :D

I still have to give presents to all 6 of my people (there's still ONE spot open, peoples! NM, Jem took care of that! ;) I know what I'm giving [livejournal.com profile] robina1984 and [livejournal.com profile] geaven, and I THINK I know what I'm making for [livejournal.com profile] greenwillow27. However, I'm not sure what I'm making for [livejournal.com profile] colibrigurl, [livejournal.com profile] luckytheevildog, & [livejournal.com profile] cynlee... do you (3)people have any ideas/hints/suggestions? hmmm...

In other news (and pictures)
The AWESOMENESS of Geaven's gift, Me as Michaelangelo, Jenn with Pimp Don Goblet, Ninja Turtle Alcoholism (and drink recipe), and Happy Wiener Roaster behind cut )

Also, Jennifer and I are planning on heading down to Omaha, Nebraska this weekend. We are going to eat at Spaghetti Works and make a nice weekend out of it. :) We are sorta celebrating our 2 year anniversary of being a couple, which was November 6th (I think... correct me if I'm wrong, sweety) It should be made of awesome. :) I hope to have a lot of fun! :D

Finally, if you didn't see my post at [livejournal.com profile] tmnt_adult, then check this shizzat out! Steve Murphy posted an adult TMNT comic by Mirage artists O_O !!! (You have to be adult verified to view the auction, sorry)
micaturtle: (Poke with a Sword?)
1st of all: TO ALL PEOPLE WHO HAVE MY CELL PHONE NUMBER: I can now accept text messages, thanks to my lovely girlfriend, Jenn([livejournal.com profile] soliloquy). She put me on her plan because she's the sweetest lovely of all time *sends mooshy gooey love feelings to my little girl that make everyone else on my f-list roll their eyes* hee hee ;D

2ndly, I will not be cosplaying as anything but a TMNT lolita this year. I kept trying to finish my venus costume, but I want it to be PERFECT before I wear it, since I know I'll be mocked anyway because of the character choice, I want to at least not be mocked too much because of shoddy construction or wardrobe malfunctions. :( Plus, with the packing I've been doing to move and the NYC trip, it's just too much in one go. I will do it next year I hope. Eeeee.

Finally, I tried to suck into my loli dress wearing tummy slimmers and such, but alas, it was pretty fruitless. I ended up breaking the zipper. I need to go get grommets after work and I will just lace-up the back with orange ribbon. Blech. I hate gaining weight.

I am so freaked out that I'm going to forget to pack something really important... eeps.
micaturtle: (tmntloli)
OOoohhh I divided up my list! (and rearranged it so the stuff I still need to do is on top :)

Also, just so those affected(Me, [livejournal.com profile] soliloquy, [livejournal.com profile] mandy_nyar, [livejournal.com profile] amandatello, [livejournal.com profile] kinectra, [livejournal.com profile] stalker_of_doom, & [livejournal.com profile] lindentreeisle) know, we will be taking an EZ ride shuttle from the airport to Lucky Ds at 12:30PM on July 21st (curbside in front of Southwest airlines) The price is $5 each plus a tip for the driver (I think if we all tip him a dollar or two it should be good)personal note: Call Janet if there is any problems 619-297-7643. Confirmation # is 72152

Also, so [livejournal.com profile] soliloquy, [livejournal.com profile] mandy_nyar, [livejournal.com profile] amandatello & I know, the shuttle will be there at 4:30AM to pick us up on July 27th and take us to the airport. (blech for ungodly early) The return trip is $8 a person.

UPDATED Monday, July 20th, 2008 11:29 AM
and a lot of these things are done now! Yay! )
micaturtle: (tmntloli)

Okay, there *IS* some new news. Jenn 'splains it much better dan me We will find out if we are accepted for the apartment hopefully tonight. We Got the apartment! :D

I am WORKING on my venus costume, but I promise NOTHING. Right now I'm playing it as if I will just cosplay New Toon April. I will decide a week from now who I'm going as.

UPDATED: 07/15/2009 2:11PM

This series of pics was taken at Sogencon 2007 . Ichigo is still demanding a rematch ;)

micaturtle: (tmnt loli)
I'm never one good with specifics, so here's part 1 of my semi-coherant con -report. I only got up to saturday morning, and I have lots more rambling to post, but NYAR! TMNT TONIGHT! .. also, it will be easier to post after SOMEONE posts her piccies *cough*mandy2*cough* damn, i hate not having a camera.

+ I promised [livejournal.com profile] roseangelo and Kim (does anyone know if Kim has an LJ?) that I'd post a link to this FOGU-related comic.. GOLDEN UNDIES! NE1 have any idea what they are saying? [livejournal.com profile] paulafrom2son ? Can U help us out here?

The rest is behind a cut so I dont flood the flists )
micaturtle: (Poke with a Sword?)
Ok, so I've had a sick weekend, but at least some of my stress has been relieved. I've been bed-bound most of the weekend with the flu, and [livejournal.com profile] mandy_nyar is mad at me because I refused to get out of bed and go to Pan's for an anime get-together on Saturday. Blech! :p But these are the GOOD things!

1. I got my cosplay costumes!! Yay! They WERE lost in the mail. *grumble grumble grumble at postal service* I need to go buy some green socks and my white shoes for my Kino. And I need to make marker marks on my diadem tomorrow and Goku is finished! Yay! *follows mandy2 aka Sanzo around, whining loudly about food* What? Getting into character? What are you talking about? Mica just HUNGRY! ;)

2. I missed the Sogenmeeting on Saturday *grumbles angrily* Oh well, it was more important that I got better. I didn't wanna push my small icky-ness sickly feeling and be sick for SanD Con. :p

TWO MORE DAYS TIL CON!!! *spazzes weakly, still a little sickly* Nyar con! :D oooohhh! and we get to meet mandy 2's dad while he's in San D! :D

[livejournal.com profile] morningstar4 PLEASE email me @ micasart@AOL.com so I can talk to you a little about con and exchange cell #s :)

~Mica ... now i wander off to catch up on my f-list
micaturtle: (Grumpy)
ARGH! Soooo MUCH Stresss! *pulls out hair*

Ok, My head is just EXPLODING with stress right now, so I'm gunna try to blog it all out.

1) Cosplay outfits: I ordered my Son Goku & Gakuen Kino outfit for Comic Con International(San D Con) a LONG TIME ago! It was SUPPOSED to be here on July 13th... ARGH! and IT IS LOST IN THE MAIL!! ARGH!! I'm very much stressing out. I don't know what I'll do if I don't get my costumes in time. I guess that's a lie. If it doesn't come, I will throw together my Venus costume, and my INCREDIBLY hot layered Kino costume :p Also there will be no Goku to our group... *whines* I will also be very grumpy, but I will get a refund, so I'll have an extra $100 to spend at Comic Con. *sigh*

2) Work Stuffs. I finally got fed up with my workplace. I love my work, but I HATE my superiors. And the company I work for. So I contacted some places and I went to a meeting with another non-profit thrift today, and I may be changing jobs before Sogencon in October. Gah! The stress! I'm just trying not to think about it

3) STOOPID UNITED! they changed our flight AGAIN, now we have to leave @ 6AM on the 25th, and we dont get there til noon. and then we have to go thru chicago! *grumbles* AND THEN THEY CHANGED OUR SEATING SO WE WERENT TOGETHER! I got mad and called up the stupid india-outsourced customer service and raised holy hell until I got a manager and he said he would make sure we could sit together. Idiots. Get your rear in gear united!

4) I have a Sogencon meeting this weekend, and I have NOTHING prepared/finished for it *grumbles* They are having it in watertown, which makes no sense to me. I mean the con is here in SIOUX FALLS, shouldn't we have the meeting HERE? *grumbles some more* I may just ditch for the first time ever... but I doubt it. I've only missed 1 meeting, and nobody in that group can take minutes to save their life, so I'd never know what happened and what was decided if I dont go. *grumbles and clings to Mikey plushie*

4) I LOST MY DIGITAL CAMERA! My Mavica! My baby! gah! It makes me so MAD! I am pretty sure I left it at Otaku Omaha, cuz that's the last place I remember using it. *sigh* damnit, there's another $300 I'll have to shell out :(

Well, I feel a little better now that I've been crabby about stuff. *sigh* I need cookies. and an aleve.

micaturtle: (tmnt loli)
I ONLY HAVE NINETEEN DAYS UNTIL COMIC CON INTERNATIONAL!! AAAAHHHHH!!! *squeels and randomly spazzes out* I am uber excited.. and have been in a perpetual state of excitement for the past 3 months. I've been occasionally thinking about comic con and squealing loudly wit uber happiness, evoking strange looks from my co-workers. :) Mandy 2 is coming with us! YAY! We're all cosplaying Saiyuki on Friday and Lolis on Saturday!! (see below list for more info on Loli) Here is my list of what I want to do at KHAAAAAANNNNN!!

+ Meet dawn [livejournal.com profile] morningstar4
+ Meet [livejournal.com profile] greenwillow27
+ Meet Kevin Eastman!
* subpoint A: Attempt to keep Mandy2 from passing out, while
* subpoint B: Attempt to keep self from hyperventilating
+ Find & buy ninja turtles archie comic #42
+ Harrass people about Sogencon
+ Give blood
+ Cosplay
+ Annoy Gojyo (aka [livejournal.com profile] mandy_nyar)
+ Have fun!!

Sound achievable? I hope so! :) I'm excited to meet GW & Dawn! I've known them online longer than almost ALL of my friends! :) NYAR!!

Ok, here's more to the point of this message:


Ok, now that I've annoyed you with my big letters, here's the dealio. My group of three TMNT fans are going to dress in Lolita Fashion on Saturday and carry around our Ninja Turtle plushies! We got this idea when Mandy2 went to Anime Detour as a generic gothic lolita and carried around her Leonardo. This was an outfit she had worn to anime cons before, and she had barely ever been asked to have her pic taken (as it is a VERY generic lolita dress) However, because she had the Leo plushie, a LOT of peeps asked to take her pic! Nyar! I think if we get enough girls to do it on the same day at SanD Con, we'll freak people out and start a conspiricy! yay! C'mon! It's fun to dress like a dolly! :) And ppl treat you nicer!

((xposted to [livejournal.com profile] tmnt))

Ok, I have some other RANDOM stuffs, but those can go under an LJ cut )
micaturtle: (tmnt loli)
Ok, so here's a scoop. I wil be leaving for San Diego Comic Convention on July 25th. I have finalized my cosplay schedule.

Thurs: Normal clothes or Gakuen Kino... not sure, but I want to be comfy so I can search thru comic boxes.
Friday: Son Goku from Saiyuki
Saturday: Red Lolita
Sunday: Gakuen Kino! :)

Here are my todo lists for each costume-
Gakuen Kino:
Here is my layout I gave to my sewer, she's awesome and I've used her for a few costumes, so I trust her:

So, as you can see, all I need to do is:
+ find white shoes
+ finish making the holster. *sigh* I wish the damn dollar store gun had come with one
+ cut the extra pieces off the green army pouches bought at the surplus store

Son Goku:
+ Figure out how to make the diadem/headband/power limiter
+ get stick for bo weapon
+ wrap stick in red tape and add balls onto ends
+ modify old tennis shoes with extra top parts
+ Make Gojgo's weapon
+ Practice styling hair into spikes

+ Add insoles to shoes
+ find cute purse with LONG strap (preferably with "mikey pocket")
+ find where headpeice dissapeared to
+ wash Mikey... *blink* ooohh! I like that one!

I will prolly post tomorrow with the list of things I want to do at san D and more stuff about the saiyuki group cosplay.

So... I won this :


It's the geekiest purchase I've ever made... gah :p

but it will make my venus cosplay MUCH cooler :) Now I just have to finish my back shell...


micaturtle: (Default)
This is a pic of my current Venus costume:

[Poll #967926]

I'm wondering if maybe a yellow jumnpsuit april would be better to wear... I'd be just about as much sewing work as the shell...

Also, here is a pic of [livejournal.com profile] mandy_nyar as Karai and The Great Mandy 2 as April ONeil. Like?

That is all :)
micaturtle: (Default)
Well, I went to Anime Detour @ the end of March, and I met MICHAEL MCCONNAHIE! YAY! (he voices tatsu from the 1st 2 Ninja Turtles movies)

Anyway, I cosplayed Kino again on Sunday, and all my friends were Lolitas (scariness!) here's the result:

Kino & the Land of the Lolis!!! hee hee! Notice how uncomfortable Kino is to be surrounded by the sappy cuteness.

Hermes - So what did we learn from that country, Kino?
Kino - We learned that Lolis are VERY scary, Hermes, and to stay as far away from them as possible ;D

Just thought I'd Share!
