|My Kuroshitsuji/Black Butler OC Kitty Maguire! |
Have a look at her, ask me about her, tell me what you think about her, and if you have any hints how I could improve her, feel free to let me know. :3
It´s been a while since I made a kind of life update, so…here we go.
First of all, the big news –
The reason? My friend Zara (funnily enough the cousin of DatNachtmaehre´s cousin – jeez, this family thing is complicated!) asked me if I´d like to go with her to the Dokomi in Düsseldorf – the same city I went to J-Day the last two years, only that this is an actual type of con with con tickets and sales halls and everything. And I said yes. We´ll have Wi-fi at the hotel, but I have internet disabled on my phone, and I probably won´t be taking my laptop with me, so…yeah. XD ll take my camera though; my new pink one, since my old one decided to die for good like two weeks before the con.
This is one of the reasons why I´m experiencing a bit of a Con Crunch, since it cut a bit of a hole into my con budget. That being said, I´m primarily going to the con to meet friends (Ayla1991 and Shiyou-chan, I´m looking at you! ) and to cosplay, and that´s where the other part of the Con Crunch comes in – I still need to finish my bloody costume. I mean, the costume per se is finished, but I still need to finish the feet and to style the wig. The wig will probably take me like half an hour to get done, and the Hobbit shoes will take me like two afternoons and a night to let the glue dry to complete them…and I WILL complete them, because cosplaying a Hobbit without proper Hobbit feet equals to blasphemy.
The problem is that I somehow lack motivation to actually sit down and work on them…I guess I´m really putting the “pro” into “procrastination” these days.
I´ve passed the theoretical test (which wasn´t too difficult to be honest, but I still was hella nervous), and today (status: 15.05.2015) I´ve had my fifth and sixth hours of practical lessons. Where I live you need to take at least 16 hours to be allowed to take the practical exam to get the licence (if you feel like you need more you can take more). The thing is, they cost me 60 Euros (about 68 USD) for 60 minutes…ooooh boy, this is going to be an expensive summer.
Now when it comes to driving itself – I´m still one Hell of a newbie, and I´m certainly not a driving genius. But so far I´ve killed no one, injured no one, and demolished nothing. I´m kind of proud of it, though this morning I could have kicked myself. I´ve made the silliest of mistakes at things we had previously practiced… There are moments in which I think that it´s hopeless. But I have the most amazing of driving instructors. He gets kind of nervous and annoyed with me, but he never yells at me, and when I said I thought I was too stupid for this, he said: “Never think that. You´re not stupid; this is just new for you. Once you´ll develop a feeling for it, it´ll all be fine.” The most reassuring thing I have heard in ages.
So a few days ago I logged into tumblr (huh, who am I fooling – I never log out, lol), and suddenly the whole freaking website fangoobers about Tom Hiddleston´s butt. I´m all like
– turns out a new trailer fror Crimson Peak has been released.
You know, I love horror movies. Splatters not so much, but the old-fashioned kind with ghosts and spirits and old houses. Dark corners and creaking wood and all that jazz. Have you seen The Woman in Black, or Mama? (← those links lead to Wikipedia-pages so you can look the movies up if you don´t know them). And Crimson Peak had me interested since the first time I´ve heard of it. Gothic horror, a big mansion, period costumes, ghosts and spirits – I cannot wait for October. Cannot. Wait.
And yes, there´s Tom Hiddleston´s butt in it. I mean, the cinematographic representation of Mr Hiddleston´s bum is most certainly very…er…aesthetically pleasing, but I´m still far more interested in the actual movie than in Tom´s booty.
See for yourself –
So tell me about your experiences with con crunches, cars and movies.
