Hello again to all who follow my sorry attempts to stay up to date on DA! I apologize for such a long break (again) in posts... Life has been busy, in both good and bad ways, and I haven't taken the time to write any new journals...
So some updates are in order!
Fanime (wow so long ago now T_T) was very fun! Long lines aside, I had a lot of fun in Lara Croft and even dressed up like Yohji for a day! Likely going to retire Yohji now, or maybe just hold onto him for weekend adventures, especially since I finally live near my Aya, Ken, and Omi... I will post some of my Lara Croft pictures soon... I want to edit them a bit, they're just simple iPhone pictures, but the location was in a hotel, and I'm hoping to convince some lovely person to replace my background with a jungle or something more apprpriate!
Haha, funny Lara Croft tid-bit... Walked around the who con with a real climbing axe and working airsoft 1911. Wasn't stopped a once... Granted I'm not brandishing or swinging them about, but it was great to not get hasseled!
Moving along from Fanime, I skipped AX because I bought a car and had to travel a bit to pick her up... What car? Why thank you for asking! Its a 1967 Impala Sport Sedan, aka Dean's Impala from Supernatural! Oh yes, I went there... After spending the past three years pining over his lovely Impala, I finally found one (not being sold by the people in TN who are snatching them up and reselling them for over their value) and bought it! She's a work in progress for sure, but her guts are amazing, and aside from obvious cosmetic needs, she should be convention ready inside of a year... Well hopefully! X3
I am thinking about starting up a fundme for the Impala, not sure exactly what to offer yet, but I will post more as I come up with ideas. Maybe bumper stickers, cosplay photos, or even appearances/photoshoots with the completed Impala. I want other fan's to be able to enjoy the Impala as much as I do! It's seriously an indescribable experience to be in the car! I will post more and even pictures and links to my youtube videos as I load them to document the progress and explain a lot of the requirements to create a replica.
