Pandora Hearts cosplay [Tuesday, February 3rd, 2009 @ 4:52am]
I need to update this journal from time to time, and now I even have a valid reason to do so:
me and stolen_heaven won the Walk-On contest at a Moscow convention!
I'm a bit surprised, considering that we cosplayed a pretty much unknown fandom, but I'm glad that the judges and the audience enjoyed Mochizuki's character designs and the way we presented them.
Pandora Hearts = ♥
I really hope I was able to do justice to Oz (at least a bit)!
And I hope that we'll be able to have a good photoshoot for these costumes sometime soon...

Our walk-on:

Just a few photosCollapse )

New anime season - Fall 2008 [Monday, September 22nd, 2008 @ 6:09pm]

Switch OVA and Hell's Angels OVA. I really hope they'll be as awesome as the mangas are.

Gundam 00. Season 2 - one of the few sequels I'll definitely be watching. Oh, and next year is Gundam's 30th Anniversary, so I'm sure more interesting stuff must come out. I've already heard that CLAMP are drawing some illustrations of Char's Counterattack.

Kuroshitsuji - once again, because I like the manga. I'm still wondering how many episodes are planned and weither or not they'll animate the Indian ark. Anime!Sebastian looks a bit strange, and Ciel looks a bit older than in the manga, but everything else seems great so far.

Tales of Abyss - just want to see how they animated this. Usually anime series based on games are inferior to the original, but who knows?

Tytania - from the creators of Legend of the Galactic Heroes. I feel obliged to try to watch this.

Hokuto no Ken - since I want to see how they draw a Fist of the North Star anime nowadays.

Mouryou no Hako - based on some award-winning mystery novel. Seems interesting.

ToraDora - the manga's really cute, so I'll probably watch the anime too.

Bihada Ichizoku - an anime about... cosmetics. Wow.

I might check out a few more series when they come out, but I doubt I'll be watching more than two or three ongoing anime in the end.

Cha-no-yu [Friday, June 27th, 2008 @ 2:28am]
Yay, our team's Gundam 00 skit won "Best modern skit" at Moscow's summer convention Cha-no-u.
Though I wonder about the "modern" part of it. But oh well.

I'd really love to have a photoshoot in these costumes now.

But, in the meantime, a few con photosCollapse )

I'm a genius... Sorry, I just wanted to use the word 'genius'" (с) Baccano [Tuesday, June 17th, 2008 @ 3:04pm]
I graduated from University! Well, almost, since the graduation ceremony will be held on July 4, but that's just a formality. Everybody's talking about "getting a real job" now, but I'll probably wait till September to start searching, since I want to enjoy my summer. And it's actually pretty impossible to find anything decent until autumn anyway.
Still can't believe I'm through with being a student though. This calls for a celebration!

Spring anime season - Code Geass R2. [Monday, April 7th, 2008 @ 9:25pm]
Code Geass R2 (episode 1)
First of all, I love the new opening. Except for Lelouch riding a horse - that was cheesy and the horse was poorly drawn. But I like the song and Orange-kun being alive made my day. Also, a bunch of new characters, including the knights and a chinese loli.
The first part of the episode was fun, too bad Lulu got his memory back, he won't be this carefree anymore. Villetta's awesome, but wtf is with her being paired up with Ogi in the opening? I want her with Orange!
Rollo didn't really impress me.
It's hard to say anything about the other new characters, but I like Li's constant "I hate you" face, and the way Zino and Anya stood before the Emperor without showing any sort of fear, trembling or awe such a majestic figure should inspire. Kids these days.

Bonus: some new character designs, also known as fashion crisis.Collapse )

Spring anime season - Amatsuki. [Monday, April 7th, 2008 @ 4:29pm]
So, it's another season, eh? It would be easier just to download the first episode of every new anime and then decide what to watch, but oh well, don't have enough time to do that, so I guess I'll just trust my friend-list on their choices.

I did watch a few new series myself though, so I'll start writing about them.

Amatsuki (episode 1)
In case you want to know the summary, it's about a guy named Tokidoki, who failed a history test and therefore was send to a virtual-reality historical museum, which recreates Japan's Edo period. There, he was suddenly attacked by a demon (and saved from it), but when he came to his senses, he realized that he got stuck in the real Edo period.
I love the manga. I really do.
That's why I'm probably gonna be grumpy about any changes that will happen to the storyline (which probably will happen, since there's only 13 episodes planned). But the first episode was actually nice. I didn't like the opening, but everything else was really well drawn. And the moment when Toki lost his eye was just perfect.
Oh, and another thing I find annoying. Kon's eye color in the anime is blue. In the manga, it's kinda hard to tell, since Takayama's art style allows different colors to be used, like coloring black hair blue and etc. But when she drew the characters chibi-like, she gave him brown eyes. Why do I pay so much attention to this? Because I'm retarded Because in both the manga and anime, there's a moment when Kon tells Toki to cover his bleached hair, because it's not normal for Japanese to have light hair - he would stand out to much and be treated as a foreigner or demon. Well guess what? Blue eyes weren't "normal" in the Edo period either, so good luck fitting in. And yes, I know that I'm nagging about some detail in an anime being *gasp* inaccurate, but I just can't help it.

Anyway, some screenshots...Collapse )

Code Geass cosplay [Monday, March 31st, 2008 @ 11:48pm]
I've just realized that I haven't posted our Code Geass photos here. Although we didn't have a chance to take studio photos yet, so I only have convention ones...

But I still like them!Collapse )

Posting because I can. [Monday, March 31st, 2008 @ 12:08am]
My own account is accusing me of being a bad blogger. Hence, I'm writing this entry.

I'm graduating from university in about half a year (less, actually), so I'm trying to find some "golden mean" between completely wasting my time and trying to work myself dead. Oh, wait - I'm not working myself dead. I definitely should be though.
So much work, so little time.

Updating [Sunday, October 14th, 2007 @ 4:47pm]
Nothing much going on - recently, work and study seem to take up most of my time. Our new project's called "Phonecall" and it's an action reality show: participants have to collect "keys" all over Moscow using tips which are given to them via their cellphones. Nothing too original, but still interesting to follow, at least for the film crew. :D

Also, had a big convention in St.Petersburg a week ago. I missed nearly all of the skits there, but learned what a pain a hoop skirt could be. I still love my dress, even though I doubt I'll be wearing it outside of an up-coming photoshoot.
I'm not really a Clamp fan, but the costumes they draw are wonderful!

A couple of xxxHolic photos...Collapse )

Yay for wasting money! [Friday, June 15th, 2007 @ 8:20pm]
Really, I should stop spending money on useless things like manga in a language I don't even know. Any moment now. Any moment.

But meanwhile I've already ordered a few Reborn! volumes and the mr.Fullswing fanbook.
And, apparently, I can't live without the following:

Life in general [Tuesday, June 12th, 2007 @ 2:15pm]
All I have to do is create two media projects and one radio show and I'll be done with my fourth year (and previous years) project! *eye twitching* But still I don't regret transfering, since studying became much more interesting. And, thankfully, no practice work this summer. Now that's a relief.

Cosplay expenses wtf? Making Sasuke's new team in the name of crack for a summer convent and right after that... I rather not think about our next cosplay. But it includes a lot of training in order to make an impressive skit and a lot of money for the costume itself.

Last season's anime worth watching:

1. Tengen Toppa Gurren-Lagann. Because it's made of win. Funny, interesting and has great characters with strange mechas. Even though I thought that episode 8 would kill the whole series, it seems that thing's aren't that bad and the main charater is becoming more and more interesting.

2. Darker Than Black. Love the main character. And the whole atmospere. Maybe it's because of Heroes that I'm into series about people with supernatural abilities, but I like the concept of paying a certain price for your abilities. And Mao looks like my own cat and that has me grinning each time I see him.

3. Ookiku Furikabutte. I blame keycchou for this one. I didn't want another sports series, I didn't need another sports series, but now it has corrupted me. I love everything about it. Only problem is how slow it's getting translated.

4. Claymore. Long time since I had so much love for female characters. And also the series really remind me of Sapkowski's Witcher (Wiedźmin). Beautiful, bloody and an amazing soundtrack. And the way the monsters are drawn in the manga is really impressive.

5. Romeo x Juliet. I need to catch up with the series, but I still find it very pretty. And cracky. Never thought I'd laugh this much over a Shakespeare tragedy! :D

Heard a lot of good things about Lovely Complex, but haven't watched it yet.

As for the new, summer season, can't say anything specific about it yet. Though... an anime about doujishi artists? O___o""
Uploaded a few previews for the new series. But I guess most of the good stuff will come out in autumn.

Eyeshield 21 meme [Monday, May 14th, 2007 @ 11:36pm]
Because I just had to do it.

Five favorite characters:
(no particular order)
- Sasaki Koutarou
SMART-O DESU. Enough said.
- Jumonji Kazuki
Future captain (I hope) and delinquent. He's just plain awesome, especially in the later chapters.
- Kobayakawa Sena
Even though main characters are rarely my favorites, I simply adore Sena.
- Mushanokoji Shien (Kid)
Actually, I don't know anybody who DOESN'T like him.
- Maruko (Marco)
Yes, I am aware we know practically nothing of this character. I just like his strategy.

Five favorite teams:
- Bando Spiders
- Kyoshin Poseidon
See above. Kakei + Mizumachi is love.
- Seibu Wild Gunmans
I actually started loving them for their anime theme. But they're actually a great team.
- Shinryūji Naga
I... have no idea why I like them. LOL.
- Deimon Devil Bats
Main character team. My love for them guarantees that the results of the Christmas Bowl won't upset me. Just kidding.

First post in a long time and it's a meme. Oh well, I'm useless. But still, people, go read/watch Eyeshield! :D
