Comic Fiesta 2nd Day Report

Cross-posted on Deviantart
Really. I should postpone writing this since it's 4:23AM!!! Whaaaat thheeee...cheese?
Anyway, because I can actually stick pictures in a journal for the mean time (and I'm still a bit down that I have, like, 2 days left of subs)
you can haz pic spam~!

I love her cosplay. Seriously people.

Oh but before that, I gotta apologize for how shitty the pictures come out. I have bad photography skills and the lighting wasn't that good. Plus, I only have Nikon Coolpix at hand. it's not DSLR at any rate
but a pic spam it will be!!

I think he makes a pretty cool Bard really.

Started the day in a not so good condition. I was a bit grauchy from the lack of sleep and my sister took forever to get ready. I nearly bit her head off. It was 11 by the time we moved out of the house and arrived past noon OTL

;v; I was happy they turned my way for some reason orz

I kind of regretted eating before entering CF because my tummy went cold from drinking Twister's apple juice and + the not so yummy bread = tummy gets upset :(

S-so tall ;v;

but once we were outside the hall I was okay, stomach pain be darned.

Snap and ruuuuuuun. So sorry ^^;

THERE WERE SO MANY PEOPLE!! Agh! Most of my time spent at CF is squeezing through the crowds.

I feared for the safety of my belongings, sanity and...well purity or something but I don't mind that. I mean, I expected CF to be crowded. I just hope the organizers will choose a bigger place next year? For a minute I did get worried because...we're on the 14th floor. The floor won't crumble from our weight, right? OTL

TvT Renoooo. I actually wanted a picture of Reno since Day 1

I tried ditching my sister a lot *evil sister*
but she keeps pulling me back, y'know? It's a good thing she had that lolita meet-up today and I coaxed her to approach the group. Well, I more of scolded her to 'f***ing ask them already!!!' so I dropped her there and in the speed of a random civilian on a busy CF day, I went inside the hall.

Lol, the moment I enter, I hear SNSD's Gee playing and I'm like "ksjfhakfakjsdsdf I bet someone's dancing on stage." Lo and behold.

Yeah. Cosplayers were dancing to it. I was at the back of the crowd and cursing my shortness when SNSD's Genie started playing. Lol, the cosplayer standing next to me danced to it too. I did too, but that's irrelevant

Right after, I made a beeline to the Artist booth and immediately looked for Mousou-Garden booth. I waited so long to buy that doujin from ryo-hakkai" that when I had it in my hand I had this keening urge to laugh like a madman and do a weird jiggle. I didn't anyway since pride, shame and ego grabbed me by the shoulders and forced me to walk away.

One of the best shots I've got of them T_T I'm so incompetent

I went for kidchan's Illustration book next. asldakhdsfldf I've been eye-ing it since yesterday but now I'm really glad I bought it on the second day rather than the first because it's quite inspiring to me. The illustrations in the book that is. Germany and Rome 0.o!!?
I've gone through the book more than 5 times now TvT

Kuroshitsuji again. Masters and Butlers

After that I went walking around the artist booth again for what felt like the umpteenth time. It's good thing I have this Canada-like-tendency to not be seen or else someone would've noticed I passed their booth for, like, a dozen times already and messed up their table again orz sorry for those who I might've done that to TT_TT

Lolita-gathering of some sort.

My sister called me out right after to take a picture of that^ but I fled the scene right after to go chase after some random cosplayer with shiny clothes.

I think I spend too much time taking pictures of Kuroshitsuji cosplayers @_@

I don't remember much of what happened next. I think I (literally) chased after some skirts and was on the look-out for more Hetalia cosplayers.


My sister calls and tells me she's going to go join the other lolitas to eat. EAT. Without me. So I told her to buy me candies.

Anyway, back inside again, I spent some time watching whatever's going on on-stage.

S-so cute *3*

It's embarrasing to admit but I'm thrilled to see the same MCs. I wonder if they've been MCing for CF since ages ago. I've only gone to 2 CFs anyway and I took quite a liking to them already TTvTT

She makes such a lovely Hungary. Thank you for letting me take a picture of you >3<~<3

Side-tracking for a bit. When I took this picture, in my head I was playing the part in Chibitalia's sheep count CD where he goes "Hungary-san~ Hungary-san~! Gohan ni pasta demasuka~?" Or something like that. I fail at Japanese anyway lol, I fail so much.


Anyway! Solo Cosplay Competition! Or the moment I had a lot of 'WTH happened?' and can also be interpreted as 'lolwhut' moment.
Well, I tried my best but I couldn't really...understand what they were going about. I think doing it solo seems pretty hard. I only watched a bit. By 2:30 I left the hall to go outside. Again.

Giiiiiiiiiin-saaaaaaaaaan Dannaaaa---*mauled by Okita* I hope the flash wasn't too blinding. I'm so sorry!! @A@

My friend, who has a way cooler camera, came after that and it was difficult trying to sought her out from the massive crowd *A* We managed anyway...

I'm so happy to be able to stumble upon these three at the same time *fangasms. dies. revives*

...and somehow I left her with my sister before running off again. I really can't help it. T^T It saddens me that neither my sister nor my friend are big fans of anime. It just breaks my heart to get excited over this and that cosplay or fan merchandise and turn around to see their blank faces.


Back inside~! Again. Honestly, sometimes I wonder why I go through all the trouble of squeezing between the sweaty bodies just to get inside, walk through artist booth, squeezing and wheezing and whining, just to get out, breath again, join the crowd outside and go right back in again. Rinse and repeat as you see fit.

Really happy to be able to see more FMA. Sorry I interrupted you ;A; I hope I didn't look too deranged

This year I didn't want to focus totally on Hetalia so I bought a few stuff from other series too like 1827 Reborn and Gintama. Wish I bought more Gintama stuff though ;v; Oh well. Next year, hopefully.

It's like stepping back in time *v*

I met and lost my sister a number of times but it's a good thing she has her lolita stuff to keep her occupied. She didn't whine so much about me not taking her pictures. It makes me happy. Truly. I never did like to get on her nerves or get her on my nerves.

So cool!! *A* I hope Kanda's face was really because the cosplayer is in character I disturbed them while they were talking TT^TT I'm so sorry!!

By 5PM we were ready to call it quits. And so we did.


Stopped by the Berjaya TS mall before heading home. My sister got stared at a lot for her lolita dress but she likes attention so all is fine.

Dunno what's going on, really :\

Arrived home at 7PM. Immediately, I worked my way through the stuff I bought. Spent more than RM100 this time around. So, it's instant noodles until the next time my mom banks in money for me OTL

Grell, the enthusiastic stalker >w>

While waiting for the bus, I went through kidchan's illustration book. I really love it. I'm inspired to draw better now. I've been ogling it since I got home and watching every line and detail to see if I can improve somewhere. Anywhere.

Mini-Okitaaaaaa!! Seriously loved this moment. Sorry I disturbed you guys. I nearly lost them to the sudden sea of crowds. Thank you for still letting me take your picture *bows*

So, hopefully I'll get back to drawing soon now that the fairytale is over. I've still got loads of assignments to complete but I will HAVE to get to drawing or my sanity will leave me.

Double the Spain; Double the pedo Joy!

Oh lookie! I have no more rant. So more pictures for you~!

I just remembered her name was Taiga orz *named the file 'Cosplay - tiger.jpg'*

Lol, he was just sitting there between a Cloud and Naruto cosplayer.

This picture was originally dark. Brightening it didn't turn out so good OTL

And I saved the best for last:

I didn't catch them at a naughty time or anything. It was like a snap and run. Thank you for letting me take pictures of your awesome self~!

Okay, I was lying. I think this one was by far the most amusing thing I caught that day:


Oh and btw, for the Malaysian Hetalia fans, did you know TV3 will be showing Hetalia: Paint it White on the 29th of Dec at 9 AM? I was shocked when I saw the commercial. No one told me anything ;A;
but damnit! I saw the ending at Youtube already!
Apparently Italy saved the day so I'm happy anyway.

Lead Me mind's buzzing. I've had two mugs of coffee so I can't sleep. My hands are shaking due to the tiredness.

Okay, truthfully, I'm on a distressing period here. I've got my final project due tomorrow (well, today, if you consider the time) and my whole team is sleeping their arse off while I'm trying to finish arranging all documents and designing our posters.

It's a recipe for disaster I tell you.

Still, I have myself to blame though. I hate that I can't trust my teammates enough to let them do the hard work, like compiling all the friggin documents and putting it in order. But it's not like I haven't tried and so far none of my close friends have shown me that they can lead enough.

Which, let's steer from the topic a bit, about leading...ffff----
I hate every leader that I've ever been under. Not even ONE steps up to actually LEAD my team EVER. At least not as far as I can remember.

I don't like being the leader (and for this project, I'm not) but I hate it even more when the leader doesn't. Do. His. Freakin'. Job. What the-

Take my leader this time. A guy, a close friend of a close friend. I'm on even terms with him. I can see that he's smart...but DUDE I wish he'd just start moving the team. No, he waits until we're 3 days due before he comes around asking, "so what's going on with the project?"

DUDE Start fucking caring already!

Okay, fine. Everyone isn't as uptight as me. They don't have sticks the size of eiffel tower up their arse but I really wish that anyone who takes up the leader role, would start to Freakin. LEAD.

No, it has to be me who sets up our group meeting date & venue, jotes down notes, construct the business plan, look up business ideas, come up with slogan, logo and name for our company, volunteers to compile and arrange completed works by other teammates and get down to designing while he goes around chasing after some random girl's skirt. Gott! Why do I work with idiots?

It's a good thing I have hardworking and enthusiastic teammates this time around. Ugu...I don't know where I'd be without them *cyber hugs teammates* Especially our financial manager~! Dio mio! I think I'd go crazy without her! I hate numbers and hate looking it up even more so she's my blessing from above or something.

Rieya-chan has been such good moral support too~ Truthfully, without her, the project wouldn't even get going. She's the one pressing us to start moving.
Yeah, I reviewed the workload I gave her and ended up fixing about 40% of it.
So my tired and annoyed mind is having trouble pin-pointing other good parts of her. Well, her enthusiasm is definitely remarkable.
Anyway, better get to that poster.
I have less than 3 hours to get it done

Do You Want My Opinion or Not?!

I found it particularly true when I watched an episode of Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei
(Trans: Goodbye, Despair teacher)
and it mentioned that,
certain people, when they ask for our opinion, are actually seeking for answers they've already found and then start bitching when we don't think the same thing.

Take recently,
A friend asked me
"How would you feel if a guy you like, who likes you back, is suffering through a disease that may cause him to lose his memories of you?"

I gave it a thought.

It wasn't hard coming up with an answer on my side.
The guy forgets? Then let him forget. Love at a level that does not have a clear result to marriage is useless to me.
What is important is my family.

But I already know this is not the answer she is looking for.
I ended up giving my answer
and, as expected, she was not satisfied by it.

This was because she was looking for consolation, reassurance and not an opinion.

What's the point of asking "How would you feel" questions if your own opinion isn't accepted?
Because she is a friend, I don't bother sugar-coating my words that much.
So I tell her, "My answer isn't what you are looking for."
Internally: "Go ask someone else who have more heart than me and actually gives more shit."

Moral of the story: When you ask for opinions, be satisfied with other people's answers. You don't have to accept it but it's an F-ing OPINION. That you asked for. Duh.
Note: I'm trying to teach myself this too

I tried looking at her perspectives of things and told her a bit of what I thought could be a solution to her...uh...problem
Solution #1: Get close to the guy's family. Let them know you both are going out so that if that happens to him, you'll be the first to know and can amend it.
Solution #2: (related to above) Start keeping your messages and all those lovey-dovey shit stuff you guys do now. IOW: start creating physical memory so that it's easier to reconcile with him.
But of course, my words dripped with honey at this point

See, I'm not that heartless.

I'm really seeing things on many perspectives now. Is it what you call empathy? I don't know.
Whatever it is, I'm a person who goes by principals so it gets difficult when talking with someone who goes by their heart.
I do try to accomodate
I'm even training myself to be a Blue Hatter (Edward de Bono theory)

when you ask for opinions, don't expect me to sugar-coat my answers so much.
It gets tiring and I go through an internal WTF moment when you look so dissatisfied by my answer.
My own opinion.
So it doesn't matter if you think differently

Critique is Good but Praise is Satisfying

I had CCT (Critical and Creative Thinking) class and
was quite reluctant to go seeing as the next day is midterms and my evening class got cancelled by majority vote.
When the lecturer entered, she began asking about those who had yet to submit their due assignment

Our assignment was we had to do a mood board based on
The 6 Thinking Hats

I had to relate one hat to myself and produce a kind of 'scrapbook' on an A3 sized board
As expected, I chose green (creativity)
but I'll take a moment of your time and reveal that I am more closely tied with black hat (cautious and careful) but I couldn't come up with a way to show that on my mood board

She begun telling everyone that a mood board isn't about us explaining what the hat means. We were supposed to relate it with our own personality.
She gave an example of a girl who claimed to be a Yellow Hat (optimist) when she was actually a Black Hat (pessimist) and the girl had the gall to argue about that with her. Her reactions were negative and all she did was deny, deny, deny when an actual Yellow Hat person would have re-done the mood board the moment the lecturer mentions something is amiss.
Offhandedly, my lecturer mentioned that a lot of people claimed to be Yello Hats and Green Hats.

My heart kind of sunk at that time because I did a Green Hat and I was hoping my work could be the red rose among the black/the pearl among the sand etc, etc.
My mind was already conjuring a new mood board (this time blue - Strict and order) to give her. That was when she mentioned something new

"But there was one person - I'm not sure which class - who did a green hat. It was very simple but showed a complete understanding of what it means to be a Green Hat. This person had utilized a few objects - if I can remember correctly, a lot of bottles, and boxes -"
around this time I thought "that might be me!" and was excitedly tugging on Aina-kun's sleeve
"- and two bunkbed ladders. I see someone smiling! Who did this assignment?"
and my hand was instantly up. I was excited but then got nervous when people turned to see who it was. My hand shot down nearly as fast
"Ah you! It's really good! Very simple and to the point. She had lots of bottles (I nod), empty boxes and two ladders, right? (I nod enthusiastically) And from all of this she built a shoerack. It's very creative and she didn't use many words."

I just went to imaginary cloud nine at this point

Here's what the mood board looks like:

Very, very simple. I was even scared to submit it at one point.
four of those item images are from
I drew both illustrations (just for this assignment) and the last picture was from an existing item.

A bit after that,
after telling us of another good example done by a student, she said that the mood board is really easy to get full marks and immediately mentioned that my mood board definitely got 10/10.


Alhamdulillah. No other words left. Seriously.

Anyway, I just remembered last monday, we got out Business Math quiz sheet back.

I was one of five people who got 40/40



We have another quiz sheet that the lecturer hadn't returned yet. I really hope I did well in that also
Midterm, today

Violence Isn't A Good Answer

I'll admit,
shoving my friend into the wall in front of a whole group of friends wasn't the nicest thing ever.
Not that I'm nice. I have just proven that to my friend.
However, trying to pin scandals into my sibling's book will never be taken lightly by me.
Friend or not.

If I had the choice, I'd like to apologize to her.
It wasn't nice of me and I'm sorry
but I really don't want to bring it up
and I don't want her to forget that I do NOT appreciate or will ever be able to tolerate that she had insinuated/slandered about my sister and a guy I don't even bloody know much about.

I can be nice and I will be nice if you give me reasons to be.

I do not ever want to make enemies with anyone especially my friends but a few things I cannot handle is anyone badmouthing/slandering/lying about my family
I don't even fucking care if it's a bloody joke
I don't take jokes about my bloodties well



To dive deeper into WHY I couldn't tolerate what she had said
was that it could have caused rumours that I find even more unnecessary
and is a bitchslap to my family's dignity, pride and good name.

I can never allow that to happen. By a friend, no less.

If it affected me and only me, I wouldn't even really care
I'm a frickkin social brick
but I live in a community based on family reputation and good name. I will not allow anyone to tarnish my parent's hard-earned social respect with some childish slandering.
(I will call it slander because it is a downright lie and has possibilities of hurting the person to whom it relates.)
At least, not smack-dab in front of me.

If need be, I'll explain this to her.
but I have high hopes that she has learnt well and will always remember the feel of me pressing her into the wall and glaring atop my glasses while I tell her to stop telling people my sister has a scandal that she DOES NOT.

I solemnly pray as so.

I know and fully realize to an outsider that I'm being a total Bitch about this but this is a serious matter to me.
I also know I look like I have one heck of stick up my arse
but when have I not?

Yet, again I have to mention that I shouldn't have done that.
There were many ways to tell her off
and shoving her into the wall wasn't one of it.
but I had done what I did and I apologize

I'm sorry.

I lost control of my emotions and lashed out badly.
It was a mistake that I wish I could take back.
Alas, it has been done.
I'm sorry
but don't ever fucking do it again

I Hope I Can Still Finish My Studies

There was a new demonstration at college today but it was because of yesterday as well. However, today everyone was even fueled with anger when the so-called 'meeting' did not quite happen. I'm not entirely sure about the details since I was in class for a good 8 hours and missed all the fun.

By the time I got out the police had arrived and I was informed that our Head (I dunno, CEO whatever but he owns the damn college) had been 'released' by the police (a.k.a he left from the QnA with the students) and they were trying to detain all the students responsible for starting the demonstration (90% being senior students).

I am not entirely sure about all this since I have been TOLD and did NOT witness it.

I boarded the bus quickly but from my seat, I saw that the number of students participating today was more than yesterday. Somehow it made me kind of happy and silly. We've all felt like we got swindled by the college, trust me, but I'm too much of a coward to face the higher-ups about it. I've still got 3 sems to go and I really don't want to give that up. Seeing so much of our students together fighting for OUR rights (theirs as well as mine) does leave me proud though. I hope their peaceful demonstration will bear fruitful results.


I condemn those stupid bloody idiotic fuckers who resorted to vandalism even after the admin at facebook had told us against doing so.

We are trying our best to do a PEACEFUL (though it gets noisy at times) demonstration. They are not helping it.

I think by tonight, videos and pictures of today's demonstration will be all over facebook. Hope you enjoy them.


I did not, at ANY instance or in ANY case, participate in the demonstration. I am a bystander in this case.

It's a bit shameful, I know but I still have 3 sems to go and I really, really love studying in KLMU despite the entirely lacking and unprofessional management.





I wish the best of luck
to those who are really fighting for your rights.

Really Proud Somehow

"Don't worry, miss. I'll catch you."


So proud of managing to draw it as so >w<
It was originally in a day setting but somehow I tweaked and tweaked with the background, it became night and looked better that way.
Taiwan's hair was a bitch to do because it was flowing against her body due to the wind coming from behind her. I've always wanted to draw a pose like that. Seriously.
It was my new passion for thin linearts that troubled me a lot but I went through it anyway.
Took 3 days on and off but I'm happy with how it turned out.

Hey, it has a decent background at least. I always fail at those.

Attended Maher Zain's fanmeet

Not gonna say much but it was really exciting going to see the man who actually made my music dream come true~!

Although okaa-san already has his CD, we went to buy another one for him to sign~
It was sold at RM25 today~

Damn...Aina got him to sign her handphone.
I want that too TvT
He sang a bit
it made my heart soar

Shimeji Wiz Available for download

Wiz is a half-OC character from my TegakiE fancomic: Un Vecchio Ricordo

Shimeji is: "Shimeji is a kind of desktop mascot!XD
This is completely useless, but a cute program.
We can play with this by dragging the characters!
" - *haagen-dazs

What Wiz Shimeji does:
-sits around
-walks around your desktop
-climbs your desktop
-play with his magic
-falls/trips randomly
-changes into his wizard costume for a second
-hides your web browser (that you can retrieve with the 4th option)
-pulls another clone out of himself or a portal

You have the option of tossing him around. He likes it rough. Don't worry

To use: make sure you have JAVA, which you can download here: [link]

:bulletgreen:How to use/install:bulletgreen:
Download the RAR from here: [link]
Unzip it and double click "Shimeji.exe"
No ZIP sorry!

:bulletgreen:Program Menu:bulletgreen:
Right-click on the flag icon to get this
1. add more
2. Come here!
3. leave just one
4. get back the IE
5. Bye Bye!

Right-clicking on an individual shimeji will also produce a 'byebye' option

:iconcrazy-chibi:'s England was used for reference (the old one - so Wiz has a walking image missing *shot*) NOTE: Also, I've made a few alterations with what they're doing so it's best to avoid using this shimeji as a reference. i.e: Shimeji!Wiz does not eat, Shimeji Wiz does not come out of a box.

Original creator of Shimeji: group-finity

Finally done~!

My Army...

...of shimeji!Wiz... very...cutiefied...

It's still in WIP mode but I hope I get it done by Wednesday.
He's running around my desktop now

TegakiE Contest Entry Walkthrough

Katsuhiro-Miamura is holding a contest over at TegakiE. It's to promote better quality and detail in Tegaki art,
and the ultimate destination is getting our art to the main page (usually through many nominations) but getting there doesn't mean you win.
It helps boost your self-esteem though.

Everyone is encouraged to join. I believe it can help improve our talent and the art we can offer to our community. So to those who have Tegaki, you should join~ It's open for OCs and fanarts and the theme is 'bond'. I know I have very little chance in winning but I still hope to join and just have fun and improve on my art.

So far I've submitted two entries and singled out one to show you a walkthrough of how I did it.
First of all, to those who don't know how TegakiE looks like.
It's this:

Everything is done on a single layer. You can zoom by right-clicking and zoom in and ctrl+z allows you to undo.
Do you get the basic gist of it?
It used to be really troublesome for me but now I'm smitten over them.
I'm there near 24/7! (exaggeration much)

I always have trouble colouring in TegakiE due to the absence of multiple layers so I gave it a few thoughts and finally decided to give it a full outline look.
Thus why I started with the outlines.
First was using a low opacity on gray colours to sketch then I used the darkest gray and thinnest point to lineart. I erased the sketches with the help of zoom and WALA!
I think I should mention at this time that I used littleMinna's TegakiE for this - thus the credit ^^;

Next, I linearted the background with colours. It's optional to do this.
OTL My background is so friggid simple -_-;;
Who knew drawing scribbles and calling it Wisteria could work so well?!

Next I coloured in the background. I used very simple techniques for this seeing as I wanted to emphasize more on the lineart. Most of the colouring contained a main colour and shade colour and mixed together using the lowest opacity

HRE's (the kid) cloak was hell to do since I had to be careful about the amount of strokes. His cloak used four colours - three shades and 1 to darken it.

Colouring in Italy completes it~ His was pretty simple.
It kind of looks like water painting now
orz orz orz

I'm not giving up! I want to do better and improve!
Sorry, littleMinna
I can't use my TegakiE yet atm ^^;
