ThoughtBubble Festival 2013

Hey everyone!

Yesterday I went to ThoughtBubble Festival, it's a Comic Convention in Leeds and it's one of the main ones I go to every year. I love the con because it's one of the few that remains mainly for comics and artists especially - I have a casual interest in comics, but the artists are the main reason I usually go to ThoughtBubble. It was really lovely to see artists that I purchased work from last year and see what new stuff they have!

I also got a chance to wear my Angelic Pretty Melty Chocolate OP which I haven't put on in years, it took me so long to save up for it so I feel scared wearing such a valuable dress, haha. But it really is one of my favourites and I feel so lucky to own it, I need to wear it now and then!

Doki Doki Manchester 2013

Hey everyone - so I forgot to write about Doki Doki, how could I forget! Doki Doki is a Manchester based Japanese festival, and unlike a lot of anime related events, it has a big focus on the traditional culture of Japan too, which is really great to see.

I was lucky enough to work in the Maid Cafe as Maid Sari - I transform into my magical Maid persona, and when I wake up, it's all just a sparkly dream...

ImagesOnAWall took my photograph at Doki Doki, thank you so much!

Sailor Moon Cosplay

Our Sailor Moon costumes arrived! <3 I actually didn't expect it to be such good quality, well done Bodyline! It was really fun to design my own Sailor Scout - Sailor Sally! In the end I was pleased with the co-ord, the colours matched better than I expected. The red actually matched nicely.

Pokemon X

So for the past week, my life has been spent pretty much just playing Pokemon X. I know, I know, 45 hours is a little bit excessive I admit. But, the new Pokemon adventure has so much to offer that I've been sidetracked many times to the point where I was going on epic quests to obtain just one Pokemon or item.

I've used the Amulet Coin the entire way through my adventure just so I could afford all the clothing items; they are crazy expensive, I don't know what's going on there!

Halloween: Sailor Moon

Hey everyone, hope you are well!

Halloween is approaching and it's the time you can cosplay and not get funny looks. <3

I'm planning to create my own Sailor Scout from Sailor Moon with a bunch of my friends from work, really excited and I think it'll be a lot of fun. We really wanted an excuse to just buy more wigs, even though I have enough to open my own store by now.

The costume I'm getting is very much like Sailor Mars except the bow is Navy and not the Purple she normally wears.

Chibi Sunny 2013

So yesterday I managed to check out Chibi Sunny 2013, a mini-con in preparation for Sunnycon 2014.

It was a small convention, but really worth spending most of the day there! They had a dealers room, which was in the main hall. You could also get drinks from the bar, and upstairs from that they had a mini gaming corner with Street Fighter, Smash Bros, Pong etc. My brother had a bash at the tournaments and was miserably defeated, and then defeated by me on Street Fighter 6 times in a row.

A little about my job!

Hey everyone!

Just got home from work! I'm on call this weekend, hopefully I won't be needed hehe. Today I thought I'd write a little about what I do, and how I came to get there!

Currently I'm a Development Tester for Ubisoft Reflections. It's a job I got straight from Uni, and I've learnt so much about the game industry while working for Ubisoft. My first shipped title was JD4, and I was really excited to work on it because I was a fan of the franchise before, I had the first Just Dance game. The people I met along the way have since become some of my best friends! Me and the JD girls below. <3
