Super Kawaii... I think

Drew always likes going to this convention called Animevegas.
Anime, for those of you that probably don't know, is a form of japanese comic and cartoon.
It looks like this:There's another type called hentai, but I won't tell you about it.
Because my blog isn't about japanese animated porn.
I mean... whoops.

Anyway, most of the time, people dress up like their favorite characters, and all the white people dress like they're asian.
I used to laugh at this. A lot.
Like hahaha, look at them.
And now? I'm doing it. But I'm going to make it look gooood.
This is the dress I picked out:
Now, you'd think, "Huh, that's an unusual dress."
But when I look at it I think, "Huh, that's an expensive dress."
It's around $80. The best part? I'm not paying for it. My really great friend James decided to get it for me as a birthday present. They're also going to custom make it for me, because apparently I have weird, abnormally large shoulders.
Or, ya know, "American" shoulders. That's what I get for venturing into the world of asian fashions.
I'm looking for accessories to wear with it. I bought some net gloves today, and now I need something for my hair, a purse, and some shoes.
I almost bought a wig, but it's $43. I'm still so horribly tempted... but I have to resist.

I went to my school today because they called me letting me know I qualify for a job on campus. I called the 3 departments of my choice, and I set up an interview. I'm waiting to set up the rest of my interviews when they call me back.
I'd be getting paid $8 and hour, 20 hours a week, for about 3 months. Actually, it would probably be longer. I think that you work until the next work study would become available.
If that's true, that'd be neat.
So wish me luck there!

I'm still writing articles. I wrote four more today, four yesterday.
And that's my life.
I keep picking up followers, so yay!

Love ya'll, and thanks for supporting me. Seriously, I always love signing on and hearing from you.

I went as a Geisha a couple of years ago for Halloween. It was my best Halloween outfit to date. I'll check my blog and see if the pic is in any old entries and let you know in case you need hair/ make-up ideas...

So are you going to dye your hair black for the day too? You are gonna look so cute in that dress! Large shoulders and everything!

Jobs on campus are really nice, because you don't have to worry about driving anywhere - you are just already there. I hope it works out for you!

That dress is really cute.

I hate anime itself.
but going to a convention where everyone is dressed the way asians do. with their beautiful silk clothing and pretty dresses, I'd so be up for that.
i really like that dress too!
