Mountains and Small Makeup Haul

20 Jun

Today I went to a couple of stores to pick up some makeup for myself/Moxxi cosplay. We went to a store called Opera, and everything is super cheap there omg.

20130619-234248.jpg

I purchased a black pencil, a couple of cow-themed makeup brushes (they were too cute not to buy), white and purple eyeshadow, and a pencil sharpener. I wish I’d taken pics of the store, everything was so cute. I also got this badass bracelet (worn by my cute little pony bag)

20130619-234432.jpg

Today I was feeling pretty bored and defiant, so I decided I wouldgo for a jog. My grandmother strictly prohibited me from leaving the neighborhood and going into the mountains, so that’s precisely what I did! Lol. It was a great jog, I came back home sweating buckets and feeling like a warrior.

20130619-234646.jpg

Here’s a picture of a cute little flower I found on the way. I also touched up the colors on these photos so that they would look a little better. I felt like a loser applying Instagram-esque filters to these photos lolol. I was also a little scared at first because on my way to the mountain, I didn’t see a single soul. But once I reached this river thing, I started seeing a lot of joggers and people on bicycles. They would pop out from behind trees and shit, so that was kind of freaky ahahaha.

I wish I lived in the mountains. 😥
But anyway, Tommorow I’m heading back to Tijuana, and after that I’m gonna go to beach on Saturday. AT LAST I AM GOING OUT.

Summer Vacation

17 Jun

Right now I’m in Ensenada visiting my grandmother. Her neighbor took pity of my deteriorating state of mind and gave me his WiFi password. HUZZAH! It actually wasn’t that bad, though. I was reading Phantom of the Opera and Faust (books I had downloaded to my computer last week, unbeknownst to me the future instruments of my salvation) while I was internet-less. It ws totally unintentional, too! As I continued to read PoTO, I noticed the characters were performing Faust. Lol.

I was SUPPOSED to get a job in Tijuana, but things didn’t work out because my uncle has to run errands in different cities and I can’t stay alone in his house. So I guess I’ll just chill here for a few weeks, lol. Which isn’t a determent to my plans at all, I get to eat visit family members and go out. 🙂 So things didn’t turn out too bad. The only thing I regret is not being able to go out with my boyfriend/friends. ._.

I have a bad habit of not telling my friends important things (much like me going on a trip to Tijuana for more than a month), so this week four different friends invited me to parties/sleepovers and I’m just like, “Oh, haha, nice… Well, I would TOTALLY go, but I’m more than a thousand miles away sooooooo…”
So yes. Socially, I’m fucked for another three weeks until AX. *insert fangirl squeal here*

A couple of days before I got on the plane to Tijuana at Home Depot, This is for Roman’s Nine Toes cosplay, with yours truly modelling one of Home Depot’s marvelous knee pads.

20130616-190658.jpg

I wanted to keep his gas mask so bad. :v

20130616-190707.jpg
I also modeled for Fotojal last Saturday for a photography course. My cousins were supposed to come too, but they didn’t wake up at 9 AM to get ready. So I went by myself like a fearless badass. (Did I mention I got lost and got there a little late? lol.) The photos turned out BEAUTIFUL, they are on my Facebook page. This photo was one of my favorites. 🙂

20130616-192813.jpg

On the plane. I got on at 11:30 PM, and OH GOD I WAS SUPER DIZZY. Like, not even ON the actual plane. I was still in the airport waiting to board. I had a migraine headache a couple of hours before arriving to the airport, and it was so bad I started throwing up. By the time I got in the plane, however, the headache disappeared. I felt so bad to the point where I seriously considered I would miss my flight from throwing up in the bathroom lol. But I was magically better all of the sudden… Anyway, I’ll stop talking about puke and show some photos from my flight instead.

20130616-190717.jpg

20130616-190722.jpg

I also completed my Moxxi, too! (Well, almost… Lol.) Still missing a few details.
20130616-190748.jpg

20130616-190752.jpg
I haven’t really gone out much since I got here, or at least not yet. My uncle took me to San Diego on Friday to eat sushi. This is the San Diego platter, and it’s suuuuper good. I forgot the name of the restaurant, but it was super cute and they had Sapporo beer. It sucks to know that in the states I’m not of legal drinking age, so I can’t just waltz up to thebarand ask for a beer. I was like, “Yeah! I’m totally gonna buy Sapporo beer with my meal!” and then I remembered the legal age in the US is 21. :l Fuck my life, LOL.

20130616-190756.jpg

I haven’t gone out much since then, so I will stop here. C: I will close this post with a picture of Roman looking very handsome. ❤

Mad Moxxi Progress

3 Jun

I’m on summer vacation currently, so I haven’t been doing too much. Right now I’m in the process of getting a job, but the work hours aren’t very flexible (only 2 pm – 10 pm) and I don’t have a way of getting around past 9.  Ah well, hopefully things will work out.
I went to a bar this weekend with my sister, her boyfriend, and a couple of friends. I don’t have pictures of that (a friend kept them all), but once I have them I will make a post about that, lol.

Right now, I’m working on Mad Moxxi for an August con and a music video. 🙂

20130603-133420.jpg

The fabric and buttons I will be using. The purple fabric was on sale, too! (About a dollar a meter!!)

20130603-133426.jpg

This is a Victoria’s Secret bra I got on sale a year ago. Originally, it was completely white but then I bought some lace fabric and black ribbon and pimped it out. It’s… A little itchy from the inside because of the lace, though. Might cover it with another fabric (sweaty boobs!)

20130603-133437.jpg
That is her little gun holster… Thing…. Made out of a pancake box, pleather, and nail polish. :v

20130603-133442.jpg
Kinda crooked top hat I made from styrene.

20130603-133447.jpg

These are sketches for her clothing! My cousin saw me drawing in the living room and was like, “Hey, whatyou’re drawing looks cute! Let me get a closer loo… Oh…. So, you’re going to wear that…?” I noddedand she gave me this really unsure look. I thought it was hilarious. XD

20130603-133453.jpg

My boyfriend and I also went to Uma Umav the other day. I ordered pork ramen and a Kirin beer (so good!) and he ordered a Yakimeshi. Everything here is so delicious, I can’t get over it.
The only reason we went in was because I found the cat painted on e window incredibly adorable.

20130603-133457.jpg

Aaaaaaaaaand this is what I have been doing these past few days. Huzzah, summer vacation.

Moxxi’s coat should be complete by Saturday afternoon, and hopefully I will be able to upload a couple of pictures of that. 🙂
Until then, I don’t have much to talk about. :c Just job hunting and Moxxi. -dies-

Winter vacay 8D

21 Dec

I have (and quite gloriously, at that) been doing absolutely nothing this past week and a half.

Finally got around to playing Ass Creed III, and I have so many feels about Haytham and Connor. THEY ARE SO ADORABLE.
I’ve also been yelling WHERE IS LEE the past three days, which has only welcomed worried stares from my parents.
All of these photos are from my Fagstagram. Because y’know, that’s the only thing I update…

20121221-062821.jpg

20121221-062828.jpg
I also went to a posada (some sort of Christmas party) last Sunday with my coworkers, family and my boyfriend.
Ian (my sister’s almost-boyfriend? I don’t even know. XD) and I tried to prepare a michelada that day.
It was really good the first time, but the second time… not so much.
We tried to rim the edge of the cup with chilli AFTER pouring everything in.
We used a spoon submerged in chilli, and this is the result.

20121221-062713.jpg
WE ARE GENIUSES I MUST SAY
And… I don’t have much to tell other than that.xD; I’ve been working on Celty too, more pictures of that soon.
I will also be leaving to Obregon this Sunday! YAY!
Now I can finally meet sooooo many people from the internets. ;.;
Not to mention, see my closest friends as well.

Silent Hill Bubblehead Nurse Mask Tutorial

15 Dec

Silent Hill Bubblehead Nurse Mask Tutorial

Hi there! c:
I’ve been getting questions as to how I made the mask (but most of all how I could see from it lol), so I put together a brief little tutorial. 🙂

You will need…

1. Cling wrap
2. One inch tape
3. Glue
4. Skin-colored cap or skin pantyhose
5. Brown, beige, red, and black acrylic paint
5. Scissors
6. Coffee or black tea
7. Bandages
8. Hot glue
9. Resistance to fling things across the room in frustration
10. Someone to help you, or someone you can raeg at

Optional
1. Liquid latex

Okay, so first you’re going to take some salt and draw a pentagram on the floor. We will commence the chant to our dark lord Satan.
Oh wait, wrong tutorial…

First of all, you’re going to sit in front of the mirror with your hair net/cap on (if you brought a friend, have your friend sit in front of you) and begin to wrap your head in cling wrap. One or two layers will suffice. Remember to (obviously) cut eye, mouth, and nose holes during this process.

Okay, after wrapping your face in cling wrap, layer over that with tape. This shouldn’t take too long…

Image

Aaaaand presto! c:
(Also, if you get bored during the process, draw on your newly acquired face.)

If it came out sort of “puffy” from certain angles, fix it by sticking the “puffiness” down, so the mask will adhere to your face shape better. I don’t know if you can tell, but the mask has a “lightbulb” shape. NO, MY HEAD IS NOT SHAPED THAT WAY. .-.

After you’re satisfied with your duct tape form, have a friend or (god forbid) do it yourself and cut a slit on the nape of your neck, and start extending the cut towards the top of your cranium.

Be veeeeeeery careful not to cut through the skin cap/skin/oh god anything that ISN’T tape and cling wrap.
I did this on my own, and well… I ended up cutting through the cap and got into some of my hair.

After cutting the slit,carefully remove the mask from your face. If it’s too tight, cut the slit bigger. Don’t worry, we’ll cover it up later.
You should feel like you are being born again after semi suffocating yourself doing this.
Oh, the beauty of cosplay!

YAY! We now have a (pretty) accurate mold of your face with DUCT TAPE!

Oh, and while you have that mask off, let’s move on to dying the bandages so that they’re ready for you to wear later on…
Take your black tea/coffee and dip it into a warm bowl. Dip your bandages in. Let them soak for ten minutes, and then hang them up somewhere so they can dry. These will be going around your head to cover the slit in the back. (Lol sorry, dying the bandages isn’t exactly rocket science, hence the reason I explained it so quickly.)

Image

Put your mask on some soup cans/head form/the floor/whatever, and take your napkins and Mod Podge out. Time to pimp dis shit.

Soak the napkins in liquid latex/glue. Apply the napkins however, really. Try to fold them or crinkle them to get that gross look. After you’re done applying the bandages all around the mask (except on the slit), seal it with some glue.

Remember, dilute your glue with one part water, and one part glue! You should have a 50/50 disolution.

Image

The pink stuff is liquid latex, by the way.
Keep layering on the napkins and sealing with glue…
Once the paper is dry, you may begin painting with your acrylics.

Image

Image

Remember to try it on during various stages.

Image

*-*Don’t hate me cuz I’m beautiful*-*

Aaaaaaand after a while, you should have something that resembles this!
You may not be able to tell, but I cut holes near the nose, mouth, and left eye with my scissors.
Again, I made these obnoxiously small. Hence the reason why I was falling everywhere,

Image

And we are done!
As for your now dried bandages, you can use them to wrap the back part of your head to hide the giant slit! :3
Have fun. ❤

Dark Rider Progress III (or IV? i don’t remember. XD)

17 Aug

Hello again! I’m posting this before work (I am INSANELY tired right now, even after a 45 min nap), but I really wanted to post about my DRS progress!
I feel quite satisfied so far, even though cardboard + gesso + sealer = a helmet as delicate as porcelain.
I started Insanity on Wednesday, and I’ve been horribly tired ever since.
I guess this weekend I might have to crank out my notes and study what we have been doing in class the past two days. 😦
I was falling asleep like crazy.

20120817-181626.jpg
What my leg looked like after a long day of sanding and filling, as I pose over my bed like a albañil.

20120817-181636.jpg
Sand, then fill, sand, then fill, sand then fill…. Sjidjvkfkthis was goddamn eternal. XD

20120817-181650.jpg

20120817-181658.jpg
After the first flat black coat! Finally it’s starting to look a little decent at this stage.
However, I had completetly forgotten the silver edges around the face and the spikes.
So I had to add those once the helmet was already painted.
:c What a dumbass.

The current paintjob! I really like how it looks so far. I used silver, turquoise, light blue, and sparkly nail polish to give the helmet a little more of a “fantasy” shine.
It does look a little “Rainbow Fish” in my eyes, but… The effect is damn pretty. XD
Under the light it shines many different colors!

Home Depot Romance Desu, Dark Rider Sej, and Ao Oni!

Roman laying beside all of the crap I bought from Home Depot. xDDD Four spray paint cans, ReadyMix, spatula, paintbrush, four rolls of foam, sandpaper, double-sided tape, and a few other things.
When I opened the ReadyMix (because holding the plastic container for me is orgasmic) I realized IT DID NOT COME IN A LITTLE PLASTIC BIN!
IT WAS IN S SUCKY BAG.
I felt so deceived. :vvvvvv

Oh, and I have been playing Ao Oni!
I’m more of a horror games person, so not too many people may like this game. XD;
But I do recommend at least playing it for the lols.
Especially for the monster… photoshop galore!
