Ähem.. ja das hab ich: Letztes Jahr.
Wie ihr sehen konntet, habe ich gelogen.... aber ich melde mich jetzt. Immerhin.

Warum schrob ich hier nichts? Hmmm, man könnte meinen, es war viel zu tun oder es gab rein gar nichts zu berichten.... wer meine anderen Sozialnetzwerkaccounts verfolgt, weiß, dass ne ganze Menge los war. Lag es an der Faulheit? Womöglich... vielleicht aber auch daran, dass mir in den letzten Monaten einfach der Nerv fehlte, viele Worte zu machen... und um die Dinge, die mich beschäftig(t)en in aller Kürze und der damit verbundenen Würze zu verbreiten, nutze ich Twitter und seit November 2012 auch tumblr. Doch Vorsicht, gerade für diejenigen unter euch, die sich dem Tumblerischen Account zuwenden wollen: Da ist IZM drin.. fast ausschließlich. Wer also für die Alltagsrants hier war, sollte sich auf Twitter oder Facebook begeben um wirklich up-to-date zu sein.

Mal sehen wie oft ich hier schreiben werde. Gerade fühlt es sich gut an, das runter zu tippen. Aber wer weiß.

Was gibt's also zu berichten? Ich versuche mich mal an einer Art Jahreszusammenfassung, die viele Lücken haben wird, aber who cares, nich wahr?

Hello, hello fellow duuudes it's been a while.
It's May already, time's racing as always.

I'm pretty much back in Germany and into my student life which sucks hairy balls, but oh well. What needs to be done has to be done, I think.
Uni started about a month ago and apart from being stressful and stupid non-realistic as always, I think it will be kinda manageable. Let's see.

Today I had the chance to enjoy some little hanami picknick here in Leipzig. In front of the Grassi museum we have a little sakura tree complex inmidst of the busy streets. Interesting point for a chill out.
And so Eric, Stephan (and later on Ms M.) did.

Wuoh finally an update!
It's been a while, but since I waited for Dominik's photos to include them here, I hope you will be able to forgive me. ^^

First things first:
Leipzig book fair this year was splendid! After last year's convention and cosplay desaster I was afraid that I would never get into cosplaying and con-going again. But heeeey here I am!
Everything was relaxed and I was in good mood, too. Awesome!

Last autumn I randomly bought a wig for Nami (One Piece) because 1. Nami's cool, 2. I adore ginger hair and 3. I secretely wanted to cosplay her.
Since I'm not that confident with my body at the moment I wanted to sew an outfit of hers which doesn't show that much of skin. So I decided to do the first version one gets to see in the anime. It was comfy, not too warm and therefore very fitting for a con-weekend.
When I lost some weight and regained some muscles, other cosplays of her will follow. Her hair colour suits me so much that ppl even suggested I should dye it like that... (still thinking of it, btw.)
Today I watched the 291st and 292nd episode, the special episodes where the strawhats and lots of earlier characters are set in a kind of Tokugawa-era town, wearing kimono and hakama and stuff. *_*" Someday... ohohoho.

Anyway, here are some pictures, Dominik took at LBM's sunday:
herrrre! )

Seriously... my brother is such a dumbass. >___< He already lost his driver's license once because of drinking alcohol and last night it happened again. Goddammit! He's sitting in the kitchen together with mum and dad and listening (just listening, not even comprehending, I guess @_@) to their lecture. Bah the bad thing is it won't help anyway... I can't get it. No matter what we say or do, he won't change. I only hope that mum does not try to blame herself like "Omg what did I do wrong?!" Gaaah.. really, sometimes I just want to slap some sense into him... (not, that I didn't try that, yet.)

Wonderful, I came home for a bit of relaxing and now there's drama again. Amazing!

Hmpf, but apart from that times were good, so far. I went to Dresden on Thursday and stayed with Veegie and Schmidtn in their flat preparing Schmidtn's and Robin's birthday and Veegie's flat moving party for Friday. The motto was "slaughter". We had lots of fake blood everywhere and people dressed up as soldiers, guerrillas and mad butchers or doctors. Great! :D

Was a bit drunk around midnight, but started drinking juice and water immediately and got pretty sober an hour later. The party ended around 6 o'clock, then Veegie, her brother, his girlfriend, another friend of him (who is hellishly cute and he is like that since I know him (2001) but only 17 years old by now... aaaah another year to wait, lol. >_>) and I cleaned up as much as we could. Left the blood-filled bath tub for Schmidtn, though... and she was pissed. Seems the cherry juice didn't want to be cleaned away that easily. I wonder why, when I had it in my bath tub everything was safe. o_O

I got home yesterday morning around 8:11 a.m, had breakfast with my mother, because my father and brother went to the K-9 training with our two dogs, and then went to sleep. Actually I wanted to do something with the dudes here, but everone seemed to be in "relaxing mood", so I stayed at home, watched some TV with my dad (a very stupid film on Pro 7, holy crap I remembered "Idiocracy" at once, it's not only in 500 years that the TV programme is shit, mostly ... xD), read a book, cuddled with Tom and then went to sleep. Got up at 8:17 today, had breakfast and was outside, too. It's cold but very sunny.. haaah the air here is splendid *____* I dunno, but when there's a field around and our garden I like to go out more often than in the city, even though Leipzig has lots of parks and stuff.

Hm... nya anyway, just wanted to update once in a while. March started, I'm starting to prepare for my re-exam on 30rd March and also want to sew my cosplays for the book fair. Since I have some stress at work right now I'm still behind my schedule. Gaah, I hope Kaname's blouse won't make a fuss again, otherwise I'll kill something... xD"

I really want to cosplay her and uahaha Nami from One Piece, too. Wore my wig at Friday's party and the hair colour suits me so much. (Weasleeeey!! Ron?! ♥)

Okay dudes, that's all for now. Take care!

P.S. Why the fuck does the rich text editor for LJ not work? I mean.. not that I'm not able to type it with html and stuff (including the fact that there's an auto-format option for the basics, too) but...?!

qantaqa: (Cloud <3)
Yay, it's been a while since I updated (with something meaningful at least).

One week to go until the Leipzig Bookfair and I'm not that in mood for cosplay right now.
But the feeling grows with every part of my cosplay that gets finished.

Here some pictures:


teeease. )

Yo!
Bin fertig geworden mit dem guten Stück, und dachte mir, ich hau euch mal ein kleines Tutorial hin. Deutsch/English.
Bittesehr!

Yosh! Finished Cloud's tonfa finally and came up with the idea for a little tutorial (English/Deutsch).
Here you go!



tu-tu-tu-tutorial! )

Yo, yesterday I had a short holiday in Berlin, Germany's oh so big capital and one of the most cruel cities, I know.
As you can read: I survived.

Mainly due to Mrs Feder's "Let's give Qan some sweets!" tour, I guess.
I met up with her at the Alexanderplatz and went to a little cupcake café near the Hackescher Markt. I forgot the name and the exact place, damn! But oooooooh *_* I never ate cupcakes before and they were so... soo sweet and yummy and fuckin' cute looking. Even the interior of the café looked like those from a doll house. Mrs Feder fit perfectly in, 'cause she was wearing a sailor-like skirt and blouse and a cap and oh my gawd, she looked so cute (like all persons wearing the "Loli"-style, I know, do) and I somehow felt the strange urge to fold my hands before my mouth and squeaking all the time.
Wuah!

Actually we wanted to take a look at the Harajuku Day event near the Friedrichsbrücke, but since the weather was a whole mess we decided to go window-shopping. When we got in to the Claire's store, a saleslady approached us instantly and gave us one of those little baskets with glimmering hope in her eyes, screaming: "BUY SOMETHING GLIMMERING AND CUTE AND PINK, PLEASU!" Well... we destroyed her hope, I'm afraid.

Besides all the window-shopping we had really great talks about fandom and cosplay. WUAHAHAHA! It's sooooo good to have someone one can share the love, with *_*"""
Later in the afternoon we went to the Harajuku Day place and I had the chance to meet Jessy there, who was completely stunned and disbelieving that I would come to Berlin. Haha, her face was so awesome. ^^
Actually we looked for some friends of Feder, but when they seemed not to be there, we decided to go... la la la, just as we were about to leave the place, Feder took a glance of them.
So I met Nina, Mrs Krone, Hachi and Nina's boyfriend, whose name I.. aaaah forgot.
/shame on me!
We sat down on the grass and stared at other people, which was funny. Muaha. I somehow felt strange again, sitting between all those cutey Loli-girls in my baggy pants XD""" but the atmosphere was cool. Later another girl with beautiful locks appeared (I forgot her name, too.. this is so bad >__<). Most of the time we were opening and closing our umbrellas because the rain was coming and going like it pleased. Grah!
One funny aspect: One of the... hmm I guess she was kind of event-admin, approached us (it was around 4 pm) and said: "Ohayoooooooo you "Abseitssitzer" (people sitting aside from the main crowd)! The cosplay challenge is starting soon, maybe you want to come nearer?"
Instantly the student in me raised his evil mind and I hardly could resist from correcting her. Ohayô.. at 4 pm... thank you very much. >___>

Hrm. But since we wanted to go eating (crèpes, yay!) again, we denied. Hachi, Mrs Krone, the super locks girl and Feder wanted to go to the cinema later and since the first three wanted to eat something non-sweet, we said goodbye and went to the underground station of the Alexanderplatz. Down there are several little shops for food, such as Dunkin' Donuts and stuff. And... oooooooh "PomPom's Crèpes" it's a Japanese store and the crèpes are so... amazing there *_*
I took a strawberry crèpe listening to Feder's and Nina's advice. The shop-owner also had green tea ice cream *_*"" Next time, I will eat some of this. It's so yummy!

After getting stuffed again, I walked Feder to the cinema and waited there with her and the others for my later company to arrive. Hohoho.. when their film was about to start, I went to the world's clock at the Alex again and met up with Lisa, Stefan and Patrick. Those three I met in the "emo-forum" I attended like 2 years ago. It's so funny, those guys aren't one percent of emo at all but I guess they're three of the most active users there. Muahaha.
I learnt something, again. Don't meet with "normal" guys when you had a day full of fandom, Qan!
Lisa asked, how my day was so far and I was like: "EATING; VIDEO GAMU; COSPLAY; WAHAHAHAH!!!" And the three were like: Ahum... XD;; (Dudes, she is a fuckin' freak, maybe we should leave her and run for our lives?!)
Well.. they stayed, which was nice.
I drank one of the worst Mojitos I ever had in the Alex bar, beneath the television tower. If there's a cocktail-lover reading this entry: Don't go there! XD"

At 9 pm I had to meet up with the guys from my train ticket-sharing group. I was so damn tired. o_O"""
Around 12 pm I arrived at home again and fell onto my bed immediately.

Although the weather was a bitch, the day was wonderful *____*""
I'm very looking forward to see all the guys soon again. Feder and Co at the Connichi and the others at a concert in November. ... okay, this is not so soon, but at least in this year, so... it's okay. :D

Well, the day's summary would be: Went to Berlin, eating awesome sweets, having great talks about fandom and scaring normal people, yay! XD"""

Thanks for reading and  have a nice day, dudes!

PS: I'm afraid, I've a new favourite song. --> Kyosuke Himuro feat. Gerard Way - Safe And Sound.
It's SO strange, I hardly can stand Gerard Way's voice in MCR songs (there are only two, actually, which I kinda like), but in this song... it just sounds... awesome!
I keep telling myself that's only because of the fact, I always think of Cloud riding Fenrir, when I listen to it. XD
(It's the new ending for FFVII AC Complete)
