As many of you know, I planned to attend Planet Comicon. I also planned to attend while cosplaying an ODST from Halo. Well, unfortunately, I didn't get to cosplay an ODST. Fortunately, however, I was still able to attend. I even pulled off a cosplay. I went as a Shinobi Batman. It wasn't super good looking. In fact, it was very minimalist. It was just my black Shozoku, my Batman t-shirt, some black socks, a long-sleeved black shirt, and some all black shoes. Yup, that was it. No mask, but that's because I didn't feel like wearing one and dealing with my glasses fogging up. Seriously, there should be way more superheroes that wear glasses. >___> None of that "Well now I'm magically better and don't need glasses anymore" crap.

Anyhow, Comicon was my first con. All in all, wasn't a bad experience. My favorite part was seeing everyone's cosplay. Sadly, I just didn't really know any of the guests there. There were a myriad of artists and writers for comics too, but I didn't get to check them out, unfortunately. Of course, there were also vendors. In fact, I would say it was almost entirely vendors. XD After my buddies got themselves some swag, I decided to pick something out for myself, and I ended up buying a Naruto manga. The second volume, in fact. Now before anyone jumps down my throat for buying a Manga at Comicon, remember that Manga are basically Japanese comics.

Also, Naka-Kon, which is basically a convention for Anime and Manga, was taking place on the same days. Honestly, I would have much preferred going to Naka-Kon, but enjoyed myself none the less. Besides, it wasn't about me. This was basically for my buddy whose birthday is in a few-ish days.

Now, as I keep saying, I did enjoy myself, so I really hope that I don't sound like I'm complaining. Aside from the cosplayers, I really enjoyed the atmosphere itself. The con-goers were mostly very well behaved and considerate. I also greatly appreciated the variety of cultures and how accepting everyone was of one another. I even saw some people cosplaying Anime/Manga characters, even RWBY.

Would I ever go again? Yeah, sure. In fact, my buddies want to go again next year, but this time we actually pull off our cosplays. XD Though next year I plan to attend Naka-Kon as well. Here's hoping they take place on separate weekends next year. ^__^'

Went to Jo Ann’s today. Picked up a few things, but not everything that I needed. Picked up some;

-White paint (Liquitex. Going to see how this works. I already had some deep purple which I plan to use as my secondary color.)

-Brushes (Cheap. Variety.)

-Razor Knife (X-acto brand. Snap-off blade design.)


I also ordered some stuff off Amazon, so hopefully that stuff comes in on time. I still have to get Plastidip this weekend. I might pick up a few other things while I’m out, depending on what has already come in from Amazon. Just to be safe. Cuz it would suck to not be able to wear the armor after working so hard on it, ya know?

Things I ordered from Amazon:

-10 yards of 1-inch Black Nylon fabric w/ 30 Buckles (This is the stuff that I need to come through on time.)

-2.5 yards of Black Elastic band (1 inch wide)

-Fingerless Tactical Gloves (Black)

-Naruto Vol.1 (It was important that I buy this. Cuz free shipping…..Also, I don’t own any Manga. Loved this show as a kid….Shuddit.)
So I wanted to update you guys on the hizzaps going on. Yes. I just said that.

So last time I told you about some projects that I had going on, and some projects that I plan to get around to eventually. Well.....there has been a slight change to the plans. I mean, I still plan to do those things, but I had another project added to my proverbial plate.

About 3 days ago, I found out that I will be going to a Comicon-type convention. Planet Comicon, to be precise. The con is happening in a little under two weeks. Originally, my friends, whom were the ones that asked me to go in the first place, wanted to cosplay Borderlands characters. After some thought, I let them know that I wouldn't be doing this. I just don't have the time, funding, or resources to do that.

That said, I am still going to the con, and I am still going to cosplay. I decided to cosplay an ODST from Halo. Some of you might remember that a little over a year ago I started this endeavor. Well back then, I only finished the shins, mostly, when I decided to stop. Back then, I didn't really have a reason to complete the cosplay, as I had no money or transport for any cons.

Anyway, I'm now back at it with my ODST build. Won't be able to do a helm, and prolly wont be able to do a weapon, but I am very much looking forward to this. As you can imagine, this build will be taking up much of my time, so I apologize if I am late to reply to comments or anything.

As always, I hope you are all well. Please, take care. :)

Just an awkward, nerdy-ish, dorky dude who rarely uploads any art here. Yeah, sorry about that.

Oh, you wanted to know about what I do with my life? What is a "Life?" Sorry, don't even know what that is. Lololololol
