Just Because She's A Pretty Cosplayer...

"Just Because She's A Pretty Cosplayer Doesn't Make Her A Slut":…

I just wrote this journal to speak out to the cosplay community.

There is an epidemic of hatred going around targeted at some of the beautiful cosplay ladies we've all been seeing.
If you have a minute, please click the link and give it a read, I really hope it helps some people to stop stereotyping.

(I didn't want to double post my journal on DA, hence the link lol)

Have a great day everyone, remember you're all beautiful :heart:

If you haven't seen the news, there was a shooting last night in a sold out "The Dark Knight Rises" premier in Aurora, Colorado. 12 people were killed and 59 were injured. You can read more about it here:…

This is terrible...
I remember last year there was a shooting threat at an anime convention I was attending, and fortunately it never happened, but the thought of it scared the hell out of me.

Why would anyone do anything like this? It really breaks my heart...

Some friends of mine are formulating a support group for the victims of last night. I ask you to please join and spread the word. More information will be available soon. Let's keep the victims and their families in our thoughts.

Daily Deviation?!

Wed Jul 11, 2012, 9:55 AM

So, I'm sitting in my room watching Stargate Atlantis, about to get my second tattoo and about to close my laptop... I decided to check Facebook and thought to myself "I'll check DA later, probably not much to check anyways"
Then I see a wall post from Cherazor congratulating me on my Daily Deviation........... I didn't believe her at first o _o

Star Stealing Girl

Journal Entry: Tue Apr 17, 2012, 4:55 PM
I've sort of stopped writing personal journals, but this is a journal I really want to write :) Maybe it'll inspire some other people as well. One can only hope!

Recently I completed a cosplay of mine that I had been dreaming of doing for over a decade.
In 2005 my very good friend Sketch did a Lynx cosplay, and ever since then I made it a goal of mine to one day make Serge and get some photos with my self-adopted brother.

It's not a very hard costume, but making it meant a lot to me.

Now, a lot of people think it's pretty odd when someone says "video games taught me a lot about life" because, honestly, how can sitting in your room all day teach you about life?
Am I right?

Like pretty much every other nerd on the planet; I grew up without many friends, and the ones I did have I either saw rarely, or were thousands of miles away.
My life began to boil down to video games and anime.
But when I was 10 years old, my sister ReekaValentyne and I played this amazing game called Chrono Cross. Many will argue that Trigger was much better, and I'll agree it was amazing, but playing Chrono Cross and getting everything perfect became something my sister and I looked forward to every day after school. We didn't bond much over anything else at the time, pretty much video games and our love for fighting with each other was all we did together (lol).

We loved the game so much that we made it a point to finish it from beginning to end every year. That alone made it special to me.

Throughout the game you play as Serge, who's existence confuses not only the people around him, but more importantly himself. Everyone runs into this question in life: "Who am I?" "Why am I here?" etc; Questions that I had just begun to start wondering myself that the game got me thinking about even more.

I couldn't define myself, like Serge, so I began to connect with the game on a deeper personal level.
The many people Serge meets throughout the game and the situations he finds himself in boils down to, well what else, fate.
Are our entire lives manufactured?
Do we really have control over what happens to us?

In the end, Serge and Kid beat their "destiny" and prove that your life is for the taking.
I felt silly being so inspired by a video game, but the moral of the story stuck with me for years. This game quickly became, and still is, my favourite game of all time.

I've been trying to beat the path everyone feels is laid out for me, and like the rest of the world, I try to improve myself every day. Still I feel like I've been hitting a brick wall for years... then the question pops up again; "Do we have any control over fate?"

Many times I've been on the brink of giving into the norm I so desperately wished to escape. I wanted--want--more from life. This can't be all there is, can there?

Then, a few months ago, when I thought things couldn't possibly get worse... I woke up. I realized everything I was doing was all wrong. Constantly complaining about things I can't change instead of working on what I CAN change. I felt like Serge when he was reborn into his new body.
In the end, the problem was myself. We all want to find scapegoats in our lives, we want to find someone to blame for why our lives are the way they are, but honestly... if you really want something so important like your life to change, why leave it up to someone else?

I took my life by the horns, and instead of being charged over or looking around for a rodeo clown to save me, I pushed back just as hard.
It's only been about a month, but my life is rapidly getting better.

Every day my new boss inspires me to be only better at everything in life. We are capable of whatever we set our minds to. You can literally be and do anything you want in life; you set your limits, no one else does.
"Reach for the Sun, and you'll get to the Moon." he says.
Well, I'm a 'Star Stealing Girl'... and I think we all should be :)

Thank you so much Kotaku and everyone who's visited my page (recently or not!) :heart:

Q and A

Journal Entry: Wed Oct 5, 2011, 3:23 PM
I got tagged by :iconcherazor: ...PUNK! >:C XD


1. You must post these rules (VERY Important )
2. Each person must post answer 10 things about themselves on their journal.
3. Answer the questions the tagger set/chose for you in their post, and create ten new questions & The originals for the people you tag to answer.
4. You have to choose 10 or more people to tag and post their icons on your journal.
5. Go to their pages and tell them you have tagged her/him.
6.No crap in the tagging section about "you are tagged if you're reading this." You legitimately (AKA, really, truly with all honesty) have to tag 10 people (I.E. Go to their Profile tell them and/or link em to the Journal )


Questions I answered:

1. If you could spend a day as the opposite sex, would you do it?
HELLYEAH I WOULD. I love being a girl, but sometimes you gotta wonder....

2. What's your biggest fashion failure (you know, that one thing that you, in retrospect, can't understand why the heck you wore it)?
Oh God... ok when I was in 6th grade I had this green bathrobe that was made out of the same looking material as Rinoa's jacket and armwarmers from FF8... so IO cut the sleeves off of it and wore it over EVERYTHING. And I mean, EVERYTHING. Baggy t-shirts, sleep pants, jackets, you name it. I looked RIIIIdiciulous.

3. Any guilty pleasures?
My awesome obsession with Dumbo?

4. If you could sneak a peek into the future and see how your life turns out, would you?
I'd be hella curious, but no. Because then I'd always be worrying if I was choosing the "right" path to get what I saw, or I'd try so hard to change it I'd lose my mind.

5. What was your first pet?

6. Have you ever been in a fist fight? (if yes, please tell us the circumstances!)
Only with my sister lol and about stupid kid stuff. We're more like brothers. I've been in a lot of almost fights, I get in peoples faces pretty up close and personally... but not any fist fights... yet >_>b

7. If you could have a magical power, what would it be?
FLY. More than anything.

8. What's your favorite ice-cream flavor?

9. What's your dream job?
Making props for people. But A)I'm not at the skill level to sell and I don't have the proper equipment and B I'm not all that popular so I'd have to hella advertise myself.

10. Have you ever been afraid of yourself, and (if yes) why?
Yes. Although I think everyone is at some point in their lives. I'm generally not afraid of anything, and that's what scares me.

This is a feature to the single greatest person in my life.

My sister, Erika, :iconreekavalentyne:.

The world would not be as bright without her.

"To have a loving relationship with a sister is not simply to have a buddy or a confident -- it is to have a soulmate for life." ~ Victoria Secunda

"I know some sisters who only see each other on Mother's Day and some who will never speak again.  But most are like my sister and me... linked by volatile love, best friends who make other best friends ever so slightly less best."  ~Patricia Volk
