      Some of you read that and nodded in solidarity. Others probably did exactly what tends to happen in person: *gasp* "You what?!"


      The struggle is real, folks. So I did the only thing I know how to do: I made a video.



    • Streaming Shenanigans: Dating Birds, Killing Classmates, and Supreme Thunder

      Man is this going to be an exciting week.


      Against my better judgement, we're going to go back to the RIDICULOUS and totally NOT OKAY story game that is Hatoful Boyfriend. Way back sometime last year, we all had a couple drinks and went through a few of the storylines. Probably some of my favorite stream art came out of it. You know, real gems like this:



      Sad you missed out? Well then do I have a surprise for you! For some reason, utterly disturbing myself once wasn't enough, and I went through and played every other storyline since then in order to unlock the secret one. Which I'm going to stream this week. Because I hate myself. And apparently you guys too.


      Getting back into creative streams, I'll be starting work on my Sailor Jupiter cosplay! Song requests will be on, and I'll be working on starting construction of the white parts of the outfit (leotard, shoulder rolls, and hip roll). I will of course try to answer any questions about what I'm doing, but mostly it'll just be a kind of chill stream :)


      Thursday we'll start a new gaming adventure and being Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc. I have heard people raving about this game for ages, and @GHzSacred was kind enough to gift it to me to try out. Given that it's a giant murder mystery, obviously we have to kick it off during a tiara stream!


      Short version? Here's the schedule!


      https://www.twitch.tv/rt_lozelda

      Tuesday (2PM EDT) - Hatoful Boyfriend

      Wednesday (7PM EDT) - Sailor Jupiter Cosplay (creative stream)

      Thursday (7PM EDT) - Danganronpa

      Saturday (10AM EDT) - Danganronpa (EDIT: I'm playing One Troll Army against the chat instead!)


      As for YouTube, I'm trying to play catch up again on getting archived streams up. I recently released my vlog from the Europe trip, and I've started doing some gameplay recordings as well to go back to posting things that aren't just Twitch archives. We'll see how it goes! I have decided that I won't be posting archives of the creative streams, because as far as I can tell there's not much reason to. I may save the video if I think there's enough shown of the process that I can cut a shorter video together that acts sort of like a tutorial, but we'll play it by ear.




      That's all I've got for now! Hopefully have some more life-y updates soon. I've been working on something that could be totally bitchin' if it pans out. And if it doesn't pan out I'll probably end up sobbing in a corner of my closet eating straight out of an ice cream carton. (EDIT: WELP, that sucks)

    • Scissor Safety and Cosplay Progress

      3 years ago

      LoZelda Supposedly An Adult

      I did a major dumb. And to add insult to literal injury I did it live on stream last night.


      Take note folks: when you're using scissors, ESPECIALLY super sharp fabric scissors, be absolutely certain you get all your fleshy bits away from the blade before you close down, no matter how quick or small the cut you're making.


      I went to go make a small, quick cut just to separate two pieces of my base fabric that were being held together by just a small one inch strip following cutting my pattern pieces out. Somehow I caught my finger in it, and gave myself a really nice cut from the side of my nail towards the middle of my finger, about 1/3 an inch in length. Thankfully it was a clean cut, blades were clean (I'm religious about keeping them pristine), and while it wasn't exactly shallow (I was going fast afterall, because I'm a dumb dumb), nothing was exposed that shouldn't have been exposed, so I decided stitches weren't necessary (even though LoLink repeatedly was like "are you SURE you don't need stitches?!" which made me sort of doubt that decision until the wee hours of the morning). I gave it a good washing and closed it up with a butterfly bandage before covering it completely with a regular bandaid, and went about the stream as normal. It certainly hurts like a bitch, but it could have been way, WAY worse.


      In happier news, other than the brief first aid administration the creative stream last night went well! I liked that I got to use it as tutorial time too and help explain some of the basics of sewing for people who wanted to know more. I'll be working on it off stream, but will save certain parts of it for the stream so that way we can talk about what I'm doing. I have a poll up for people to let me know what parts they want to see so I can better determine what is more interesting to you guys. We'll be doing the next creative stream on June 1!


      Tonight is Tiara Thursday, and I'm starting Danganronpa. Considering how excited everyone else in my chat has been for it, I'm pretty pumped to dive in. I love a good mystery! Add in a healthy dose of "wtfuck Japan" and you've got a recipe for fun :)


      On a different note, I finally made a Facebook page for myself as LoZelda! I'll post stream, YouTube, and cosplay stuff there so I don't have to clog up my personal profile or my posts here with all that stuff. Give it a like and share it with your friends!

    • RWBY Earrings

      3 years ago

      LoZelda Supposedly An Adult

      Apparently image uploading changed on the site again, and now we can add captions again (WOOHOO!), but they don't show up on your feed and based on friends' postings that I found completely on accident I'm thinking they don't generate notifications either. So no one knows if you put a picture up? Not entirely helpful, but I digress...

      I added a picture the other day of some earrings I made for the RWBY Season 1 screening. Turns out I don't have any RWBY merch somehow (other than a poster...and while I thought about turning it into a dress I still really wanted to have the poster afterwards), so I was sort of in a pickle. I threw on what I still had of my closet cosplay of Yang (sans blonde wig, since that was borrowed), and cranked these out super fast on a whim:


      1322063-1462508243304-image.jpeg

      I think they were kind of cute! I may do a similar take on some Tower of Pimps earrings, or maybe some RvB earrings...*insert "all the things" meme here*


      Anywhoodles, has anyone told you that you look fabulous today? Keep rockin, my friends.

    • Alien Isolation Vids and This Week's Schedule

      3 years ago

      LoZelda Supposedly An Adult

      I think my heart rate has finally returned to normal after the adventure that was streaming Alien Isolation. If you missed the streams, or just want to relive my horror, the first two streams are now up on YouTube! The third one will go up on Friday.



      It also seems my community has a sick and twisted sense of humor, because I received a box from @Jesster246 today.


      ChfBw8MWwAEy3bn.jpg

      I may or may not have had an idea for a video involving these...maybe. Speaking of videos, the Europe video is coming soon. There was waaaaay more to edit than I realized with that. Goal is to have that up this weekend for Patreon backers, with it going live for everyone sometime next week. But who cares about next week, let's talk about this week! Here's the good ole streaming schedule for the next few days.


      Tuesday (2pm EDT) - Finishing up Illusion of Gaia! WE'RE GOING TO DO IT GOSH DARN IT

      Wednesday (7pm EDT) - Mystical Ninja Starring Goemon

      Thursday (7pm EDT) - Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime with @LoLink

      Saturday (10am EDT) - Mystical Ninja Starring Goemon


      In other news, I've picked out the wigs I need for two of my cosplays. I'm starting to go on the hunt for a sweater to use for Mabel, though I need to decide exactly which of her sweaters I'm going to create (stuck between her signature shooting star and the light-up sweater from the intro) before I do too much. Tomorrow I'm going in search of the fabric I need for Sailor Jupiter's skirt and fuku, and hopefully hitting up the local dancewear shop to find a leotard I can use as her base. I'm also starting to try to locate the pieces we need for LoLink's Grunkle Stan, but that's an entirely different beast. Mostly because I need to find prosthetic ears and a nose and boy is that turning out to be more difficult than I anticipated. The ears I'm sure I'll find eventually, but that nose...I may be learning how to make my own.


      What are you guys up to? For those going into finals still, good luck! For those who already finished them, I hope they went well!

    • Old School Console Party

      3 years ago

      LoZelda Supposedly An Adult

      I'm kicking it old school for a few weeks for my streams, moving my rig down to my basement where I have my trusty Elgato and collection consoles ranging from an NES up through the shiny Xbox One. This week we'll be playing Illusion of Gaia on the SNES, a game I never had the pleasure of playing that has been lent to me by a friend. Once that's wrapped up, said friend has also lent me the N64 treasure Mystical Ninja Starring Goemon (yes that whole thing is the title), which is yet another title that passed me by in my younger days. We'll round it out with some games from my childhood, the Adventure Island series! Somewhere in the middle we'll take a break so @LoLink and I can play another constellation of Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime and try not to kill each other :D


      There will be no stream on Thursday since I'll be partying it up with RT Michigan at the RWBY meetup and screening at our Alamo Drafthouse! If you're a Michigander (or a close-by Indiana-er), make sure you grab a ticket and join us!


      If you missed last week's Alien Isolation streams (*shudders at memory*), I'm breaking from my normal order of editing and getting the edits on those wrapped now so they can go up on YouTube very soon. The first one is currently slated to go up on Sunday. Typically when I edit a stream I only edit out the breaks, correct for the stream going down, and maybe some minor audio level tweaking as the recording allows. For these, I did something a little different. They're still there in their entirety, so don't worry about missing anything! I just may have...added a few things in. To say I'm having some fun with it is an understatement.


      As a reminder since we're approaching the end of the month, if you want in on stream and YouTube perks for the month of May (holy shit how is it already May) you'll need to get Patreon pledges in by midnight on the 30th! Check out all the sweet, sweet action here. We're very near the next goal, a single-sitting adventure through Ocarina of Time!


      <3 you all!

    • Glad I Wore My Brown Pants - Final Night of Alien Isolation

      3 years ago

      LoZelda Supposedly An Adult

      Short version: fuck this game.


      Long version: I'm a smart person. I am totally aware that it isn't real, and that the alien, or the androids, or the other people, can't actually get me. Nothing is going to happen to me, other than having to repeat a part of the level. But JESUS CHRIST is it getting into my head so bad. I mean, I am playing it in the dark with a surround sound headset, so I'm sort of asking for it, BUT STILL! The first night I literally had to sleep with the lights on. Last night was a little bit better for sleeping, but we had to cut the stream 20 minutes short because I got myself so nervous I was convinced I was going to throw up. I'm a god damn wreck.


      So we're doing it again. Because I promised 3 nights of it, and I'm a lady of my word. And I'm stubborn as shit.


      Originally, we were going to play this every night until we finished it, and the whole thing was going to be done in the dark. After the events of the last few nights, at the suggestion, urging, and support of the chat, we've agreed that once the alien nabs me for the first time (somehow that still hasn't happened) the lights can come on. We're also likely going to call tonight the last of the series, with a small possibility that I'll revisit it in broad daylight after a couple days' break.


      Have you missed the streams so far? Have no fear! That's my job (get it? because the game is scary?). The streams will be going up on YouTube shortly. Want a teaser of what you've missed? Check out this highlight from last night :D


      We're kicking off in an hour for our final (?) installment of the game. Tonight is also the last night to get entered into the prize pack raffle (my logo pin, and Alienware pin, and a free print from our Etsy shop). Stop by at twitch.tv/RT_LoZelda and say hi, watch the terror, and place your bets on when Noodles will finally get his grubby hands on me.

    • Let The Pants-Wetting Commence

      3 years ago

      LoZelda Supposedly An Adult

      The first night of Alien Isolation ridiculousness has started! Come join the terror-fest over at twitch.tv/RT_LoZelda to watch my in the dark (literally and figuratively) playthrough and laugh at my fear along with the rest of the chat.


      Edit: Stream #1 is done! No alien deaths yet...YET...but looters murdered me a couple times. Apparently stealth isn't my strong suit. Cut the stream exactly at the promised 3 hours because I was just noping all over the place. We'll attempt to continue this terrible, terrible adventure tomorrow at the same time (8:30PM EDT)! Thanks to everyone who stopped by and supported me through my multiple times of crisis <3

    • Alien Isolation Streams This Week!

      3 years ago

      LoZelda Supposedly An Adult

      Streaming last week was awesome. We finished painting the Zelda amiibo!


      1322063-1460686465717-Zelda_amiibo.jpg


      I'd love to do more amiibos like this. Link, Yoshi, and Samus variants would be super cool, or turning Peach into Daisy. I'm going to keep an eye out for sales on amiibos, and if I find a good deal on any maybe we'll do more of these.


      This week is reward time! I had a Patreon goal setup, with the promise that if we hit it and maintained it for a full month that I would do a blind playthrough of Alien Isolation at night and in the dark. You guys made it happen, so this is the week I make good on that promise! Tuesday will be a regular stream (2PM Eastern, playing games with the chat), and then we kick off the scream-fest on Wednesday! We'll be starting at 8:30PM Eastern (approximate sunset time here; this is different from the originally announced 7PM!) and playing for at least 3 hours. I'm planning on this going for 3 nights, which means Thursday's adventure will also be our Tiara stream! Because drinking is a great way to deal with being terrified. There will also be a special raffle prize up for grabs during the streams as well.


      I'm really nervous, but I'm excited for the streams. It also means we're really close to the next goal, which is a "12 hour" Ocarina of Time stream. It's in quotes because I'm pretty sure it's going to be about 12 hours, but we're going from start to finish in OoT all in one go (not 100% though) for it! So it'll be however long it needs to be to accomplish that.


      See you guys later!

        You think that, but when you actually get to it your brain turns to pudding. I did well with "basic" relativistic physics, but the end of quantum mechanics was brutal. I may or may not have gotten intoxicated for the final and gotten my beat grade of the year.

        I worked on NOvA, based at Fermilab, with just general contributions as a sort of engineer/chemist hybrid working on the construction phase. I worked as a chemist for MicroBOOnE testing waveshifting scintillators and published a paper you could probably look up if you were really that interested entitled "Photodegradation mechanisms of tetraphenyl butadiene coatings for liquid argon detectors".

        Thanks! The one I just did was actually my first one, so I know nothing about the Turkey Trot other than that it exists. I've had friends who have run it, and they said it was a blast. Their only semi-complaint about it was that none of them had practiced running in the cold prior to it and they had issues getting their breathing pattern down.

        Give your leg time to get better, you've got plenty of time to get through the training before Thanksgiving smiley0.gif

        That's great! Congrats! I was just wondering, as a fellow Michigander, if you've ever been in the Detroit area at Thanksgiving and ran in the Turkey Trot before the parade? Because that's the 5K that I'm currently on hiatus from training for (really wish my leg would get better), the 5K being called the Stuffing Strut

        That is correct! I actually just ran it Saturday. It was an odd combination of both better and worse than I expected...I had to walk sections of it, but I still managed to clock 27:33.0 so I can't really be too disappointed!
