The whole damn world is just as obsessed
With who's the best dressed and who's having sex,
Who's got the money, who gets the honeys,
Who's kinda cute and who's just a mess
And you still don't have the right look
And you don't have the right friends
Nothing changes but the faces, the names, and the trends

So I dont rant all too often, and when I do I apologize for seeming to rant on retarded things.
But this time it's really gotten me rather pissed off, because it's someone who I am an aqquantance of who is making me rather steamed.
So in college, you meet a lot of people; some good, and some not-so-good. This person who I refer to, who will not be mentioned, is a local in the college' Student Lounge. He's just as strange as the rest of my RV group but he's one of us, I suppose.
Anyway, we were all talking about AnimeNext 2012; who we hope will be guests there, if we'll be getting hotel rooms for the event, etc. Then we get to cosplay. One person says she wants to be Envy Adams from Scott Pilgrim vs. The World
another wishes to be some charcter from Soul Eater
. Then I show the sketch for who I wish to be.
And this is where I announce my AnimeNext '12 cosplay: Amaterasu, from the game Okami
However, I am doing this in a different way. I am making a ginjinka version of dear old Ammy: a humanoid figure, but still keeping some of her wolfish traits, like the tail and the ears, etc.
Components of said cosplay include:
- Japanese straw sandals
- Japanese hakama in red
- Painted scroll with sumi brush picture on it
- A top made of bandages
- Amaterasu's Celestial Mirror
- 100 Stray Bead and Demon Fang necklace
- LOTS of face paint, in white and red
But this aqquantance, when he hears me talking about it, starts to essentially rage on about how he thinks that is the stupidest idea in the world. Why? Because he says "A dog costume would look best ON A DOG!". He then proceeded to say things like 'You stupid furry," and the like. You think I'm a furry? Your the one who has animal ears permanently on a leather hat.
Okay, can I say some things?
1) I do not identify myself as a "furry". I take ideas, such as animal characters, and make them into something different at times. And even though my nickname is anything from 'Raichu' to 'Kitsune' and 'Foxy', I am not a furry.
2) You bash someone for being creative and thinking outside of the box.
And 3: How DARE you critisize my ideas. You've got no right to do that. You dont see me bashing on your ideas. And bitch PLEASE, I dont see you going out of your way and making nearly all of your props when all you probably do is buy an already-made Sephiroth outfit (minus the one angel wing)' I dont critique your idea of how your outfit plays 'One-Winged Angel' as you walk by (although that is a pretty sweet idea). Your lack of originality is laughable: you do an overdone character, when you aren't even in shape to pull off a character who normally wears no shirt. You have no idea how hard it was for me to come up with this original idea; you have no idea how long it took me to work out the kinks in the simplist items: you try making things for the first time, fucking up and having to remake prop pieces and accessories at least 3 times or more).
I care not for your piano-playing in the student lounge; honestly, you make that piano sound even worse then it already is. I dont enjoy how you steal my fox hat and hold it JUST out of reach of me due to my height, and how you took my shoes and put them in the highest rafter from me. I dont like how you act like such a goodamn cocky, arrogant know-it-all at Timeline when the rest of us aren't the most knowledgable at history. And I dont like how you think you know everything about cosplay.
I quote Calcifer, of Howl's Moving Castle
: "Another curse on you: may all your bacon burn". In this case, bacon means your costume: I hope you get that nice wing clipped, raped by fangirls and chased by Pedobear (Althogh I doubt they'd come close to a fat Sephiroth). Also refers to your douchbagerry amd how rude you are.
From me, I apologize if I just murdered your minds with my rage. But someone like this really does get on my last nerve, and I can get angered pretty damn fast. I just hope that he doesn't make another asshole move like this again to me, because then I might just have to show him the wrath of a goddess as a result.
Eh, I guess that's it from me for now. See you guys and girls later, I have a lock-in tommorow.
