ヽ(*´∀`)ノ RETURN!

Hey guys, I'm baaacckkkk~ ヽ(´▽`)/


Sorry about the absence - the past week was the final tidal wave of projects. It was brutal, I hardly slept. I had a history essay, philosophy essay, French dissertation, French test and multimedia portfolio due. ;_; So much stress! I'm glad it's over.

This is just going to be a filler blog post for now... I've found a new makeup style that I really like, modified version of my past routine but it makes my eyes bigger! (I've learned to extend the wing lower, or else I have really Asian shaped eyes.) Also tried a bit more with nose contouring which I'm still trying to get right... I think it was a bit too dark in these photos though lol.

I filmed part of the tutorial today but then both of my memory cards ran out of memory, and then I couldn't find the cord to download the clips... So I just deleted them and took a bunch of pictures. Naturally I found the cord after lol, so I'll finish filming it tomorrow! (っ´ω`c)

Here are some pictures~

I tried putting in two different coloured circle lenses because I like the effect! 
Left = Princess Mimi Sesame Grey
Right = GEO Cafe Latte



Totori and I! 


...Man I wish I could wear my cosplay makeup every day, it's too much effort though!
Will start filming vlogs and posting here regularly, so please be stay tuned~


Also, new favourite song! I want to do her makeup as well!

Toronto Comicon!

Quick con report of Toronto Comicon, previously known as March Toronto Anime Convention.
My cosplay group and I weren't planning on attending another small Hobbystar event after the disaster that was DTAC. 

Ringo had work, and Genie didn't want to go... Which only really left Sami and I. We weren't really interested in going, but then Justin got tickets for us! 

On the downside, I pulled my back while practising the dance cover for SO COOL by SISTAR. It's actually quite embarassing...  I was dancing on the carpet, spun, foot got caught, and fell over. The stupid part was that I didn't even sprain an ankle, but one of the discs in my back slipped a bit. Meaning whenever I went into certain positions, I felt a shooting pain go up my spine. Same thine happened to me at Fan Expo. Maybe that's a sign that I should stop going to Hobbystar events. 

I wasn't planning on cosplaying to the event either... but then I figured I may as well get some nice shots in my cosplay! I'm in a partnership with miccostumes.com. If you buy a cosplay from their shop, use the code 'sachie' and get -10% off your items! I'll make an official post about it soon. 

Changing into cosplay with a slipped disc in your back is quiiiiite painful. Although I pushed through for the sake of cosplay.

1G3G Show! + Giveaway~

Yesterday, I went with my friend Ariel to see the1g3g panel that was doing a show at my school! 1g5g (aka 1 Girl 5 Gays) is a show on the television channel MTV. It's basically 1 girl (Aliya Jasmine, host and producer of MTV News) and a panel of 5 gay men who live in Toronto.  On the show, they talk about their lives and relationships. They answer 20 questions on the show. Although it can be quite explicit at times, it's pretty funny.

Aliya Jasmine was there, with Jonathan Schuester, JP, and Matt Barker!

Aliya Jasmine, before the guys came out. She's so tiny and gorgeous, and she's a lot more intense than she appears on TV! Super entertaining, she's awesome. When she was walking around answering questions, she told me that my gold shoes were awesome! *_* Day = made! 

It was hard to take pictures because it was dark and the lighting was weird. 

From left to right: JP, Jonathan, Matt, Aliya.  


At the end, we went up and got a picture with them! We actually skipped to the front of the line and nobody noticed, haha! I should've dressed up nicer, this was my day class outfit! But super excited that JONATHAN HAS HIS ARM ON MY SHOULDER, he is my favourite  I'm kinda glad that Matt Barker wasn't there lol, he seemed really annoying and cocky during the actual show. 


I'll be going to Toronto Comicon with Sami this weekend! I'll be cosplaying Yuki from Vampire Knight Guilty, not sure what Sami is doing? Cat Kigurumi I think?  Anyway, we'll be there on Saturday. We'll also record a few vlogs and maybe a dance.


Finally, have you entered my giveaway yet?

Vampire Knight Cosplay + Rent

Got my Vampire Knight cosplay from miccostumes.com, who I am currently in a partnership with!  Can't wait to start making more videos / take pictures in this. I'm cosplaying Yuki Cross from the series Vampire Knight. I have longer hair in these pictures because I wanted to mimic her hair from Vampire Knight Guilty.


These are just some speedy iPhone pictures. Hopefully I'll be able to take better pictures soon! It's actually quite funny because I wore my Meiko wig on top with my real hair poking through!  The colors are actually quite close, which it blends so well. I don't think bangs would work with my actual hair because I have very defined eyebrows that don't look good under the bangs... I'd have to dye my eyebrows lighter?

Also, if you use the code sachie on miccostumes.com, you can get -10% off your order! 

Lenses arrived from Mukuchu - Cafe Mimi Waffle grey! Can't wait to try these out, since I'm super in love with the Cafe Latte ones. 

Oh, and an update on the rent. Well, it worked out (for now)! We had to make a deal though because S was having financial troubles, so the land lady said she could rent for only 8 months instead of 12 like the rest of us. It's good that we have the place now but it kinda sucks that we have to pay 4 months more rent than her... We're trying to find people to sublease it to over the summer.  We're signing the official lease on Monday.

I swear if anybody else drops out or suddenly decides they don't want to rent anymore, I will go into insane version Sachie. 

Hopefully everything works out. 

Bad Week.

Blogging at 1AM because I feel crappy and can't sleep.  

I've been sick all week with a very bad cold. It started Tuesday afternoon with the sniffles, but then escalated and just got worse. I had an essay due on Wednesday which I had finished part of, but I was feeling so terrible that I had to defer it. (I got an extension to Monday.) 

Didn't go to my classes today except for my philosophy tutorial. Only went to that because I really love it.   Then I went back to my room and napped  , then got food, and then played Team Fortress for a few hours.

Karumen and I made such a great Heavy/Medic duo but unfortunately she sacrificed herself for me. Or got backstabbed by a spy, I can't remember. But it was a great game.   If you have a Steam account, add me! I'm ✿SACHIEPON.

I've been watching InuxBoku SS recently! It's very cute, definitely recommend it for those of you who like girly/romance anime. Very lighthearted. The main character is a tsundere... I have such a weakness for tsunderes hehe.  Caught up with those episodes so I decide to start watching La Corda D'Oro. It's one of my favourite manga, I don't know why I waited so late to start watching the anime! It's another really cute series, I recommend it.   I want to cosplay Kaho-chaaannn~, the girl with the red hair. Just need to find a violin, haha.


I also did my nails today. Shoppers had this pretty polish on sale for $2.99! I've been looking for a nice light pink polish but wasn't able to find one. Kind of messy, but I'll fix that later.

Finally, rent troubles. I've mentioned on my twitter that I'll be renting a place with a few other friends for next year. Wellllll, stuff happened. Suddenly, S says that she probably can't rent with us because of some financial troubles. Then J, one of my high school friends, says that if S pulls out, she'll also have to pull out. We were supposed to rent this house as a group of 4... Meaning if those two pull out, A and I will have to rent the house for just us two and share with two other strangers. Which would really suck. 


We're going to meet with the landlady tomorow to sign the lease. Hopefully nobody else decides to pull any crap on us.  I'm really desperate to find a place to stay next year because it's getting late in terms of rentals and most of the good houses are gone, we just got really lucky to find this. 


Just ughghghgh people can be so unreliable sometimes.

I'm no longer in the top 5, meaning I won't have a shot at the big prizes. I'd really like to win one of the prizes so that I can sell it to help pay for my UK exchange fund.  Which will cost me almost $10,000...
