      to being a responsible adult. On the way to my car after work today I stopped in at the Dark Horse comics shop at the Universal City Walk mall area, as I like to do, to oggle all the fabulous figures etc. That was when I saw this.

      I wanted it instantly, but made the responsible decision to make rent this month and not purchase it. I really wouldn't ever do that-buy something instead of paying for something neccesary, like rent. But you better believe if I had the extra 250 I would now own that statue! (Which I think is a little steep for it, but it is a limited release I suppose) I have a feeling that like the limited Rogue they had rogue_replica_statue.jpg I will wait to purchase it hoping some month I will have the etra for it, and then the store will sell out of stock, and if I ever want it in the future I'll have to pay way more for it. Ya know, it is kinda hard to have figure collecting as a hobby when you are a broke college student! smiley8.gif
      If you had extra money to spend on anything right now, what would it be?

      I would like to attend the Star Wars in Concert event I journaled about last, and if I do go, I want to go in costume. I thought I would make the Amidala Packing gown as that is a favorite of mine, but Star Wars has some of the best costume designs, they really are gorgeous. Since there are so many amazing costumes, I am now unsure if I want to do that one or one of her other dresses. They are all just so awesome! Ultimately I will probably end up making the one that is most affordable/that I have time for… ^^; But since I am indecisive in nature, I thought I would ask which costume is your favorite. :) One day I would like to make all of them...
      Do you all like:
      The Packing Gown, The Coruscant Kimono,

      Sabe Decoy, Green Cut Velvet Gown

      or the Corset Gown (with or without feather capelet).

      Oh my stars, to my immense delight, I discovered that my school's library has season one of TrueBlood! XD I checked out the first two discs, and it is awesome!! I was watching it while I make leather rosettes for school, and unfortunately have finished both discs and want more. Now I have to wait 'till Monday. Sometimes I don't like waiting patiently...

    • What have I been up to lately?

      Well, my two weeks off from classes has gone by very fast. It has been an awesome break, but I was still very busy the entire time. After graduation I spent the first week of my break with my family in San Diego and had a lot of fun with them going to the zoo, beach, Balboa Park, USS Midway museum, going to Transformers ROF (sooooo awesome!) and on a couple hour cruise of the harbor etc. Then I spent the next week in Bismarck, ND. While home I learned to drive a manual "stick shift"- not too bad at it now, but would never want to live in a city with lots of stop and go traffic with one of these-thank God my car in LA is an automatic! I did wedding stuff with one of my best friends as I am her co-maid of honor along with another best friend of ours. (the three of us have been friends since we were babies, seriously)
      I lit off a massive amount of fireworks on the 4th and had fun smoking cheap gas station cigars (which tasted quite nasty btw) while making sparkler bombs (only slightly illegal haha) and putting as many bottle rockets as can fit into a coffee can and rigging it with sparklers so that they would all light, because that's how we roll in ND. lol

      In other news, only a few weeks left until Comic Con, and I have been too busy to really get any work done on any of the cosplays I have planned for this year, which unfortunately means I am going to have to cut back and finish some for another time. I did add a different cosplay to the list and started working on that with my friend back home who is coming down for CC this year. I am really excited because I have always thought it would be awesome to cosplay with a friend and not by myself. I hope to one day be a part of a group cosplay too! :) I hope this secret new cosplay will be well recieved as we have taken some liberties with them...
      I had hoped to post some awesome vacation pics along with this journal, but I cracked my camera, so I got a dvd with all the pictures from my family and friends cameras and only now found out most of the pictures won't show up for some reason. smiley2.gif So now I have to try to get them again. I can leave you with this little story and picture of my adorable little neice, who is 17 months. My keys and my little brother's aviators were on the dresser at the hotel, and she put the sunglasses on, grabbed my keys, walked to the door, turned and looked at us as waved and said "bye-bye" and tried to open the door. It wouldn't open, so she turned again and blew us a kiss and walked to the other side of the room. She is so adorable and funny! :)

      I can also leave you with:

      My legs covered in the awesome sand at the Coronado beach, the sand there is actually golden as there are pyrite flecks in it! (it does look way more golden in person) I can't wait to do a mermaid photo shoot there! XD

      I survived my final quarter. I am so excited and proud of myself. It was tough, and there have been many times that I wasn't sure if I would make it, but I finished everything and will graduate tomorrow! Huzzah! I am now officially a fashion designer! XD I am excited to start on my costume design degree in a few weeks, but I am going home over break, and that will be really nice. I can't wait to sleep, eat, do laundry etc. like a normal person again! And my family is coming down for my graduation, I pick them up in 2.5 hours. Which is also all the time I have to clean, do laundry, and pack my stuff so we can leave after graduation tomorrow. We are going to San Diego for a few days as I think it is a nicer and prettier place than Los Angeles, and after some fun there I fly to North Dakota for some much needed R&R. smiley0.gif It does make me sad to know that I have killed brain cells these past few months by staying awake for more than two nights in a row though...anyway, I hope to upload pictures of some of the stuff I did this quarter eithor while at home or when I get back to show you all... smiley12.gifsmiley13.gif

      So, I am taking a break from hw to share with you my little 7-11 saga. I little while ago I decided to go to 7-11 and get some energy drinks as I am pulling two all nighters in a row. :( I decided since I was going I would try to get some of the new Transformers: ROF slurpee cups they have, as I love the nerdy slurpee cups Sevy sells. So, I go over to the slurpee station thingy, and see one last Bumblebee cup sitting on the counter where they had them, and as I walk over to it, some little Mexican child picks it up. So I started looking through the cups to find another one, and there wasn't one. So I asked the kid as he was filling his cup if he had seen another one, and he looks at me, smiles, and goes, "nope!" in this snotty little voice. I had the other three, and really wanted that cup to complete the set, so I simply asked an employee to look in the back for me, and after a little persuading he did. He found one in the back and brought it back to me, but before he gave it to me he was all, "How old are you?" I replied, "20," and he was all "aaannnd your still collecting these cups?!?" I just looked him in the eye and said, "yes." Then I went ahead and got me four Transformers cups, plus the Wolverine and Gambit ones as well. No Slurpees, just the cups. smiley0.gif

      My four year anniversary with my boyfriend was on the 27th, and he gave me these! At first I didn’t really like the AmeComi figures, but they have grown on me and I think eventually I would like to get a few more.

      We were apart once again for our Anniversary, so we have only spent one of our actual anniversaries together. smiley2.gif In other news I am getting pretty exhausted, and can’t wait to graduate. I hope I do, I am starting to get nervous that I won’t finish all my stuff and won’t graduate, but I am probably just freaking out for no reason. I am sure the lack of sleep doesn’t help my mental state. I have pretty much been going almost 24-7 for the past few weeks, and will keep up this intensity for the next three weeks. I am sleeping 0-4 hours a night, although I do try to get at least one night of around 6 hours a week to combat those all nighters. The rest of my time is spent at school, work and trying to get all my homework done. Some days I barely have time to shower or eat, and I won’t lie to you guys, sometimes I haven’t! But I am really excited to finish this degree and then start on my costume design one. Well, this has been a nice little break from all my stuff, but I must get back to reality and all the work I have to do. I hope you are all happy and well! smiley12.gif
