It seems that this summer has been incredibly rainy for some odd reason.
Dont get me wrong, I'm happy that it's not 100+ degrees out when I'm hanging with my pals but the sheer amount of rain we've had in the past month has just been ridiculous. I'm hoping that it doesnt rain as much the rest of the summer season.
It's been a good summer, so far! AnimeNEXT was amazing (jeez, that feels a whole world away!) with people snapping shots of me as Amaterasu. We got a fire pit and hot tub put into our back yard: good-bye swimming pool, we've had you there for a good few years since we moved into this house.
Damn you rain for just spoiling a bunch of hang-outs.
Costume-wise, I have my line-up for next year planned out:
- Steampunk Chrysalis from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic
- Elizabeth from Persona 3
- Steampunk OC's for various events
Elizabeth will actually be for a couple's cosplay: my boyfriend (yes, I have a new one now) will be cosplaying the Persona Thanatos alongside me, and we shall freak people out with the God of Death just walking at my side. Chrysalis will be for pure lulz, since I have never done an evil character before for any of my cosplays, and the Steampunk stuff? Welll, that's for...
CLOVERWORKS! A Steampunk 4H Club which I am a leader of! The boyfriend is also going to be another leader, if he gets his orientation done with soon. This year at our local 4H Fair (coming up in just a few days!), we will have our own booth there even though the club doesnt debut until the fall and handling the Arts Tent table from 12 to 1. It's nerve-wreaking, exciting and it seems like I've come full circle in 4H by running this club.
My job is working out too: I work at our local Dollar Tree which may sound like a stuffy job but really, its not that bad: I get payed and thats all that matters!
So really, summer hasnt been bad at all. Truth be told, its been one of the better summers Ive had in a while! Let us hope it stays that way!
