HELLO!

I might not have been really active on deviantART in forever and a half eternity, and I'm not sure it'll change too much in the future, but I HAVE BEEN DOING STUFF. I'm going to NYC this Friday, and I've tried to pick up my BJD hobby again (after having left my dolls gathering dust on their shelf for two years oops), as well as ... trying to actually edit and submit pictures of my cosplays, something I've been terribly bad at. There will probably be a bunch of pictures coming up here from NYC in general, bc I'm going to play tourist for the month I'll be staying here ha ha. I also want to try and do some sort of cosplay progress update. I'm currently working on a genderbent version of Captain America! So look forward to that, I guess. 

For now, since I reminded myself while talking to raburabuReishi , (she's incredibly talented, go take a look at her gorgeous cosplays!) have a picture of my Kisaragi Gentarou aka Kamen Rider Fourze cosplay from two years ago! I loved this cosplay A LOT, the problem was my camera lens sort of destroyed itself so most of the pictures I took from then were completely useless and frustrating I never ended up doing anything with them. Also no one at the convention save for like two people knew who I was cosplaying as. Speaking of Tokusatsu, yes, I'm a complete nerd and have been for the past 5-6 years or so, so while this might be new for me to upload on dA, it sure isn't in general. And Kamen Rider Gaim is currently my guilty pleasure cry.

This one's a phone gif though, so maybe that's why it passes :'D (Also, friendship nerd.) I think next time I do Fourze, I'll try my hand at Nadeshiko's rider suit.

Uchuu Kitaa~! by Cesia


EITHER WAY I hope you're all good. It's been a while since I've written a journal, much less done much of anything here.

I keep falling off the face of this page with random intervals haha

I finally got my replacement MNF for Kira! I'm not sure I've said this here, but Kira's actually been reshelled for a while now as I've waited for his new mold to arrive. He's going to be a MNF Chloe instead of a DES. Not sure what to do with my DES head now, but I think I'm making it into a girl instead :3c I also got the Yder event head with this order which honestly made me more excited than the Chloe sob. I have a huge bias towards Yder. Maybe because my first doll (Faiyu) was a Delf Yder. djfgkfd that mold is just so pretty I can't get over it aaaaaaah :3ccc

So now I don't only have one head to paint, but FOUR. Domino (my MNF dreaming mod Breakaway), Kira (MNF Chloe), Ash (MNF elf Yder) and Khim (Dollzone BB Tengyuan) all need faces. fffff when am I ever going to get time for that, I wonder... Also I seem to be well on my way to creating an MNF army :|a

Also I got tagged by :iconkarenbjd: with this questionnaire:

The Rules:
1. You must post these rules.
2. Each person must post 10 things about themselves on their journal.
3. Answer the questions the tagger set for you, and create ten (10) new questions for the people you tag to answer.
4. You have to choose 10 people to tag and post their icons on your journal.
5. No tag backs.
6. No nonsense in the tagging section about "you are tagged if you're reading this".
7. You have to tag 10 people.

10 things:
1. I like cold pizza.
2. Once in my innocent youth (read: 5 years ago) I figured I'd own only one doll ha ha ha.
3. I think I ate more food during this weekend than I normally eat in one entire week.
4. I love chocolate like a crazy person.
5. I also drink at least 4 cups of tea every day if possible.
6. I'm a lesbian but the only people who hit on me are drunk guys. Even in gay bars. I don't get it :|
7. I play World of Warcraft on occasion.
8. I'm also an avid cosplayer, but I think most of my watchers are aware of this ha ha.
9. My hair is currently half brown and half pink woop woop.
10. I'm a nerd who watches Japanese shows about plastic monsters and super heroes aimed at 10-year old boys. (The Tokusatsu genre is AWESOME, guys!)

RoomTwo's questions:
1. What's the scariest thing that's ever happened to you? (if it's too scary and you don't want to say, that's fine)
I think it was falling through a broken trapdoor in our barn loft, trying to grab a hold of the edges before everything ever went black. I came to on the kitchen floor with the headache of my life and ended up in the hospital for a few days with nothing more than a concussion. Apparently I'd avoided being impaled on the steel pegs sticking out of the floor below by just... falling to the side for some strange reason. I AM GRATEFUL I'M ALIVE. And it was scary as fuck, just that feeling that you can't hold on, it won't stop what the hell is happening— *complete darkness*.
2. What's the stupidest thing you've ever done while drunk? (For those of you who don't drink, what's the stupidest thing you've seen someone do while drunk?)
Well, since I don't drink myself, and I barely go out with people who do get drunk... Maybe I can count the drunk driver who almost hit me and my friend who were out walking? >> Because driving while drunk is pretty damn idiotic. 
3. How many different countries have you visited? (name them?)
Let's see... I live in Sweden and I've been to Norway, Denmark, Finland, Germany, France, Poland, Netherlands, Switzerland, Arabia, USA, Thailand, Japan... I think that's all. I'd love to go to England sometime tho :<
4. Out of all the countries you've visited, which was your favourite and why?
Thailand, hands down. We were there for pure vacation purposes, and it was awesome, warm and just amazing to run around and explore. I would also want to add Japan to this list, but it gets placed second only for the very frustrating travel company I had. :<
5. What was your favourite childhood computer game/ videogame?
We didn't own a computer or TV until very late sob. Every time I say this people go "wtf" but yes, it's true. However, I do remember enjoy Bubble Trouble and Warcraft/Starcraft etc.
6. If you could pick one mythological creature to bring into reality, what would it be?
Falcor :U Or well, DRAGONS.
7. So, imagine you're a bender (lol). Which element would you be?
Hmm... water or air, I think.
8. What's the most laddish thing you've done? (worthy of many, many lad points, doesn't matter if you're female, you can still be a lad)
Does it count to keep the door open to old people? Not sure what exactly counts as "laddish" though, as I think most things can be done by both genders C:
9. Favourite form of transport?
Ferry. It's not as restricted and you can walk around also it's calm (mostly!).
10. Most embarrassing outfit you've ever worn/been forced to wear?
I don't think I have ever worn or been forced to wear something I think is embarrassing. That or I've forced myself to forget it XD

Also I just watched Rise of the Guardians and I loved it. Man, I want to see it again, RIGHT NOW. I'm also in the process of making MORE doll clothes. I... would actually be curious if anyone would be interested in buying, and if so, do you want me to take pictures and upload? Because I think it's more that I really need the kick to actually get started, and not just roll around and never get going.


I wish I had the energy to actually make some sort of journal layout, but. Effort. Effort is hard. 8(

Anyway, I figured I needed to push down the "Happy Halloween" entry a bit. I mean, it's almost Christmas! (Yes, I suck at this writing journal thing, I know.)

Well, sort of. I'm... sadly not able to celebrate properly this year due to living where I live hauhau. Maybe some late stuff on Saturday or something, we'll see. Riddle makes a nice substitute for me not dressing up.

NaNoWriMo is just around the corner and this year, I'm determined I'll finish! I have an idea, a semi!rough outline and a buttload of new characters that have wormed themselves into my heart. I just hope something will come of it, because it'd be a nice thing to finish a novel. I'm also drawing a lot again (!!) and ... I might start posting art eventually. It's been so long since I kept updating with a lot of art, because I've just not felt like it was worth it. And that I haven't drawn anything I'm happy with.

The dolls take up a lot of my time, but I don't think anyone's complaining, really. (I'm not haha.)

IDK what I'll do if it's caught, but I sure want to do SOMETHING. Photography, drawing, maybe even making something.

I rarely do these things, I used to more when I was super new around here. Now I'm too lazy to notice when my pageviews change. But 50,000 is kind of special in a way, so...

So I said I was going to do this meme a while ago and then I. Just. Forgot about it :| ANYWAY.

For reference, my dolls are:
Faiyu (Delf Yder)
Miki (BF Tinyfairy Niky 1st edition)
Jamie (Pukipuki Sugar)
Kira (Minifee Dark Elf Soo) (floating head, occasionally shares body with Riddle)
Rain (Kid Delf An)
Riddle (Minifee Juri 2011)
Fi (Unoa Sist) (floating head)

Who was your first doll? Do you still own him, her, or it?
Faiyu was my first and I still own him <3

Who is your favorite doll?
Hm... I love them all just as much, but. I think my absolute favourite has to be Kira, because I know I will probably always work on him. He doesn't even have his own body yet! And he's the character that is closest to my heart as well. I'm also not sure about if his mold is right for him, even if he's super cute as he is right now.

Which doll do you hope or plan to buy next?
Septimus. What mold he is supposed to be I won't say yet though.

Quick! You've instantly got $800 and must choose a doll to spend it on right now or it's gone forever! Who do you pick?
Oh... uhm. I'd get a DC Bella, another Minifee body for Kira (since he and Riddle shares the one I have) and one for Fi, and...  uh... idk if there'd be much left after that.

Quick! You've instantly got enough money for any one and must choose a doll to spend it on right now or it's gone forever, but this time you have to buy the doll for someone else! Who gets the dolly, and what do you get them?
Hmmm... I'm not sure actually. Probably a Minifee DES for my friend Cynica. <3

Are you currently waiting on any dolls, heads, or bodies?
Not really right now, no.

Do any of your dolls seem to like you to the point that they are infatuated with you?
Nnnot really, but the dolls I connect the best to has to be Riddle and Kira.

Do any of your dolls seem to dislike or even hate you?
Not really here either. I think Faiyu and Rain has the most resentments, if anything XD

Who's your most expensive doll at the time you purchased them, not counting items you bought separately for them?
Faiyu. He's my only SD. (For now).

Who's the least expensive doll you own?
Jamie.

Is there a limit to what you'd spend on a doll?
For now, yes. I wouldn't want to spend more than $600 on a doll. I actually prefer to keep below $450.

Which doll did you wait for the longest for so far?
Kira. And he's still not finished. 8|

Which doll had the shortest wait so far?
Uh, wow. Rain? XD Since I bought him second hand.

Who's the biggest doll you own?
Faiyu at 60cm :3

Who's the smallest doll you own?
Jamie, at about 10cm.

Got any floating heads? If yes, how likely are they to receive bodies anytime soon?
I have two at the moment, Kira and Fi. As soon as I can afford a new body for Kira, he's getting one. Idk when that'll be though. Fi, I have no idea, since I'm looking to put her head on a Minifee girl body, but we'll see.

Got any floating bodies?
No.

Do you have any extra, unclaimed pairs of eyes? How many if so?
I have three pairs I think...?

Do you have any extra, unclaimed wigs? How many if so?
About three, I think. No, wait, four.

Anything you've said "never" to in the hobby that you later gave in to?
lmao yes. Never was gonna do faceups, I was never going to get more than one doll, never get more than two dolls, three dolls, four... etc.

Do you own dolls that aren't BJDs?
I have an old porcelain doll. And then I have gorgeous jointed action figures.

What was your last doll-related purchase?
A wig for Kira.

What do you expect your next doll-related purchase to be?
A doll.

What was the last doll-related thing to arrive to you by mail?
A wig and a few silicone headcaps.

What was the last doll-related thing you purchased in person?
Uuuh.... wow, uhm. 8D; I don't remember. That was a looong time ago. I live too far away from any regular dollie meetups :(

Not counting floating heads, floating bodies, and anything on layaway (paid off dolls count), how many complete dolls do you own?
Five.

The quiz is over! Any last words?
Do it do it do iiiiit.

Oh my god. I... have it all planned.

A few months ago, I got my eyes on a doll that I wanted, and I can finally bring him home in just a week or two. I'M SO EXCITED, you have no idea. It'll be my second SD sized doll, and dsjkdhgjffdfgjkg all I can say is that he's very very special and I'm looking forward to this so damn much.

I also have a cosplay I'm working on. Well... a cosplay I'm SUPPOSED to be working on, seeing as I am super slow about it. I really need to get my butt in gear and start, because I keep having anxiety attacks about it, and that SUCKS. It's always easier once I've actually started the creation process, but for some reason, actually getting past the start line is really fucking difficult. I wish there was a way for me to just push a button and get it over with. Sadly, that's not the case. I know there's motivation, I just am pushed back by my own uncertainty that I'll be able to make this. \o_O/

LIFE... is. Okay, I guess? I don't do much, I'm still... STILL looking for a job. I'm getting tired of this. I don't get out much, and I miss people and social interaction. Otherwise... yeah idk.

Faceups by Cesia

Hey, I was thinking if there's someone out there who'd be interested in BJD faceups done by me? I'm by no means a professional, actually I'm pretty much still a newbie, but I want to learn and be better at this.

I'm not going to charge a lot for it right now, seeing as I'm just starting out. So about $7-8 per head, depending on size? You'd have to pay for shipping yourself, however.

In the picture are examples of faceups I've done in the past. I use Winsor & Newton's artist's soft pastels, Milan watercolour crayons, Louvre Medium Gloss Varnish and MSC UV-cut flat. I have waterbased acrylic paints, but I haven't used them yet, though I plan to.

I'd preferred to get cleaned heads sent to me, though I CAN clean them off for you as well, but I'd charge an additional $3 for that.

If... anyone is interested? h-haha
>> cosplaysm.se/bubblare/#cosplay… <<

Cosplay-SM is on again! The Swedish championship in cosplay.

/)_(\ If you have facebook, you can vote for me and I will love you forever and ever.

This is the second year this contest is going, and I got into it with my application again, which I'm happy about. Now... the voting system is... a little bit unfair, I think. Essentially, you vote for the contestants via facebook, liking the cosplay profiles. The link I've provided ends up at my page, and you can click the facebook like button at the top, in the middle. The one that says "Gilla". Gilla = like in Swedish.

There's a reason my Homestuck cosplays aren't on my profile: it's because the contest is strictly Japanese series/games/etc only. Just fyi.

The prices for being a finalist is a free ticket to the biggest convention, something I can't afford on my own ever. I didn't afford it last year, and I definitely won't afford it this year h-haha. I'd love to get to be at least finalist, so I can participate in the contest and get a ticket to the con because it'd be so awesome and dsjkghkghg ;; I've never ever won a cosplay contest in my entire life, least of all something this big.  

Because of the advertising for votes-system I'm really far behind everyone else (and I also have less people to ask to vote for me, and I feel bad for ASKING for votes), so... I'm being a little shameless and asking my friends to please vote for me IF YOU WANT TO and if you think I deserve to get a place in this competition.

If you do this, thank you so so so so so much, it'd mean the world to me <333 ;^;
I'm going to take a few pictures later, but finally! Actually, it's Riddle's body, but eh. Until I can afford another MNF body, both of my floating heads will have to share XD

Anyway, I'm not quite satisfied with Kira being a DES, and I'm actually considering just switching his mold out. I was thinking a Lishe head for him. I've been looking at other people's Lishes, and yeah, I think it'd suit him better. The DES looks so tiny and thin, and the eyes are a bit too huge and round for Kira.

So I might put my DES up for sale later, if I find another head for Kira. :|b

I was gonna add features in this entry, but honestly? I've not looked at my message center for so long that all my watches has reached 6000+, and frankly, it's too late for me to go through them all now. (Yes, I am crazy and do intend to look through all the pictures.)

I THINK I AM WATCHING A FEW TOO MANY GROUPS MAYBE aside from people 8D;

Anywayyyyyyyy. I've got a few dollie updates:

1. My doll plans for this year has silently been pushing down all my other plans from their thrones, one by one, by solely taking command of where my money ends up. Apparently, I'm not going to be able to do a cosplay IMMEDIATELY this year, but the convention I was planning on has been canceled, so I'm actually a bit relieved.

2. I promised myself last year that I'd spend 2012 taking one BJD picture each day. Well, figures that I wouldn't be able to do that, and surprise surprise, I haven't done that either. I think that was more of an impossible thing anyway. I should be taking some new pictures soon though, I'm just not sure of whom. :|a

3. RIDDLE IS FINALLY COMING HOME, even though technically his head has been with me since December. Hopefully next week I'll get some heavy mail. I waited and waited for my money to pile up for this moment, and last week I had enough to send off payment to someone on dA for an a-line body, so now my two Minifees (Riddle and Kira) will have something, at least! So far, they'll have to share Riddle's body, and it's a bit of a shame considering they're BFFs, but. I'll make do with this until I can find a body for Kira too.

Wow that entire paragraph just made me laugh because it sounds so... so... dumb.

4. I did my second faceup ever just a few weeks ago, and to be honest? I think I have a knack for this. I never expected it to be SO EASY, since the first time I did a faceup (about two-three years ago, maybe) I literally sucked and it looked like first-grader had been smudging paint all over it. So I was too afraid to do it again. This time though, the improvement was kind of a mindblow even to me. I won't be putting up pictures of the old one, though, I don't want to show off that horrible mess XD

5. This means I'm going to start doing faceup training! Which I'm looking forward to. I just need to get more MSC since I've almost run out oops. And maybe I'll some day be able to do faceups like the amazing people out there who are beyond awesome at this. I still have to figure that out.

6. THIS ALSO MEANS I'm possibly looking for a random head if someone's got one they want to get rid of. ANY HEAD WILL DO, slight damages, old faceups on it, yellowed... you name it. I just want a cheap head I can practice on, without having to worry about ruining it in the end. PM me if you've got suggestions.

Yeah... that's it, for now, I think.

I think my dA is slowly turning into a photo dA heavily leaning towards BJD. I did not mean for this to happen, but I can't really say I'm complaining much.

Man I'd be uploading more pictures if I had a decent photographer who I'd entrust my camera to on this godforsaken island, but. I don't. :( So I'm limiting myself to meetup and convention photos. orz

ADD ME. Or something.

I just noticed Rain's faceup is slightly chipped. It's nothing serious, and not really noticeable in photos, but it's sort of one of the reasons I need to clean him up and have his faceup re-done. Though faceups are yet not my strong point, I might have to send him off to someone else to do it for me. At least whenever I have money for it lmao like. That's never. /o\

ANYWAY. I've decided to start doing features, and idk how often I'll do them, but I guess I'll switch them out when I feel like it's time. This first time I just pulled a few photos out of my favourites section. I'll collect a few new ones next time.

Since I've been more than active lately, what with posting cosplay pictures and a heapload of doll photos, I've been thinking I'd want to do a feature thing in my journal once a month or something, or idk, every time I write a new entry. Thing is, I'm pretty sure no one would care much? XD But I do want to just showcase my favourites anyway, no matter who actually reads my journal or not.

This is because I rarely update my journal, and I do want to use the function.

So.

I have cosplay plans. Lots of them 8D;

And I'm going to acquire the supplies for a few new cosplays in a month or two. Most of them won't be cosplays I'll compete with, because I'm getting too lazy to compete if the costume is just simple and plain. That's like, no effort and no reason to compete with.

BUT I AM NOT GOING TO REVEAL ANYTHING YET, until I have necessary items and ... stuff.


I'm also going to go back to an old cosplay and revive it because gods I want to want to want tooooooooo




ALSO I WANT TO SEE IF I CAN GET MY ASS TO JPOPCON but I'm not entirely sure. We'll see.

I'm also going to cosplay Karkat from 4 Chords. We've gathered a little group too, and we have Tavros, Gamzee and Vriska too! :D And I think Nepeta. And maybe Equius.

And I'll maybe cosplay Rosiel. MAYBE. We'll see. I'm starting to run out of space in my suitcase :(
