Sushi and Sumo: Shoujo Visits the Japanese Festival, version 3.0

It’s time for my now ?apparently annual? excursion to the “local” Botanical Garden’s Japanese Festival. Chronic is picking me up from my home this afternoon, following which we will pick up his twin brother from said brother’s place of work and make our way to the home of our friend living adjacent to the gardens.…… Continue reading Sushi and Sumo: Shoujo Visits the Japanese Festival, version 3.0

“I Have the Plague.” –Anime STL 2019 cosplay & commentary

I have the plague. I don’t know when it happened—if it was slow in coming or began all at once—but I have it, and I’m looking for a cure. An amazing someone tried their best to cure me, and their medical expertise was unparalleled in its individuality (the usage of ducks was very inventive, for…… Continue reading “I Have the Plague.” –Anime STL 2019 cosplay & commentary

Botanical Garden Japanese Festival 2018

Like last year, I attended the Japanese festival at our “local” botanical garden, although this time I went with my friends (Ginger, Chronic, and Chronic’s as-of-yet-alias-less brother) instead of Husband.

I just re-read that opening paragraph…… Continue reading Botanical Garden Japanese Festival 2018

I’m currently waiting the next 20 minutes for the Caleb Hyles concert, and following that, well… I saw the CUTEST giant hedgehog at the dealer’s hall, and it is 25 dollars, but…… Continue reading Pack Bonding with a Smol Octopus (Anime STL —Day 2)

And so begins my highly subjective, rambling, journal-like coverage of Anime STL! Does anyone have any rose petals I can borrow? How about a periwinkle jacket? No? Aw,…… Continue reading Mayes Hughes is Alive and Well! (Anime STL—Day 1)

Cosplay Updates~~ 1950s Gender-Bent Yuuri Katsuki

You may remember that I’ve planned a very specific cosplay for Anime STL (as well as any other cons I pick up this season). The deadline for creation draws ever nearer, and I’m getting antsy as the bulk of my work still lies ahead as my RL job gets ever more demanding… To begin, the…… Continue reading Cosplay Updates~~ 1950s Gender-Bent Yuuri Katsuki

🌸⛩Shoujo and Husband Attend a Japanese Festival🌸🇯🇵

Two possible truths could prove the less-than-profound-yet-highly-accurate jumping off point for this post’s introduction. The first? I am incredibly but happily tired from an afternoon well spent. The second? I might need to go back on my no-more-fan-media pledge for Yuri on Ice and read some fanfiction because, dear readers, I have been inspired…By this:[Yurio…… Continue reading 🌸⛩Shoujo and Husband Attend a Japanese Festival🌸🇯🇵
