JAC cosplay.

14 people took part in the Japanese Animation Club's Halloween cosplay contest, myself included.

I think I got 2-3 votes. Most someone got was 20, followed by 14, and 10ish... The least was 1. Everyone could vote three times.

:: shrugs:: I didn't really expect to win, since this was a last minute cosplay bit, but at least someone recognized who I was without me telling them, which is good. I forgot the small bit of tape Ritsuka usually has on his face though, and I think there's a number of pictures with me with my glasses on. ^^;; And Ritsuka doesn't have glasses - so whoops~ And I don't know how to pose.

Surprisingly enough, there was someone else who did a Loveless character: Yuiko

I think next year, I'll be doing Kaitou Kid from Conan. Hopefully. Takes time and planning though - as there's some parts that'll need to be handmade, instead of mostly bought, like this years costume.

Total cost for the costume this year:
$29 (tail, ears) + $10 (blue sweater - was supposed to be a jacket, but we couldn't find one) + $3 (white strip of fabric/thick ribbon stuff + 50 safety pins) = $42

Not too bad, but... still, kinda expensive in my mind. At least for a single event sorta-thing. I did find the tail material at the store (Joanne, on Neil, north of Bradley, right before you get to the highway), but honestly, I don't think I have the time or skills to sew my own. But they've got different colors (light brown, pink, white, etc).. and oh so many other things...

Taiwan.

We'll be flying back to Taiwan for a week to see my grandmother, Dec. 22-28, 2006.

She's, well, losing her will to live. So we don't know how much longer she'll last.

I don't really want to go back, but I got the feeling that I would regret not going back, which... doesn't bode well. I should probably get a proper crystal or something for scrying, instead of using my bell-keychain.

Why is scrying not a word in the dictionary?
