Tamaki Suoh of Ouran (My favorite Host)
Watched Ouran? How about Mei-chan no Shitsuji? Or maybe Hayate the Combat Butler?
Maybe you've been to Akihibara or seen videos of Maid and Butler Cafes. It verges on the whimsical and it's just lovely.
I've actually always dreamed of being served in one of those. Never really imagined the opposite happening. YES. Me, a simple commoner of even simpler facial structure and speech will be serving as a butler at an event this Sunday. (Not to mention I'm not a guy)
Can you believe it? I honestly CAN'T. XD
The Vocaloid Manor Cast: Secret Garden Kissaten
I'll write about how it goes. But right now am assuming people will not hire the likes of me. It just sounds TOO weird. I dislike the fact that the effort Ms. Ricah did with training and the vest they made would be a waste.
Care to find me?
Am the only cross dresser there and I don't know how that will pan out in a 'maid and butler cafe'. "OTL
Everyone else is perfect though! And I really hope everything works out.
I've seen the efforts from the two, and it's just amazing. It's hard not to wish them the best and work hard for them. They're bringing something new to culture as a whole and they're doing it with 1000% effort!
Now, here are some pictures of the Twins:
(Sue me! I don't have pictures of the others in here, for now. My vanity makes me optimize my pictures first.)
10 ways to survive Multimedia arts:
10. Backup. Backup. Backup. and always save - This does not need explaining.
9. Save Money - or someone you can count on when the thesis projects get insane.
This is just being practical. Because even if you have a scholarship, there will be
a LOT of things to print and a lot of supplies to buy.
Forgetting where you put the formatting of that paper or not knowing where to start is solved by WRITING DOWN notes
8.Write down reminders/Schedules - mental notes? Screw them, and get to writing.
With all the things you have to do, who has time to remember a small revision due tomorrow morning? When you're in front of the pc, most often we all get brainwashed
and sidetracked. So a handy little reminder can set us straight.
7. Have a 'person' - by this I mean someone you can check schedules with. Or just
basically someone in the same class as you. A lot of professors like changing rooms,
or meeting times, having a few people you know in class can always be helpful. (Specifically the one who the professor texts when they'll be absent)
Relaxing like a PRO
6. Have an energy drink or anything that boosts your morale - When deadlines
become hectic and the minor subjects are contending with them, it's somewhat natural to abandon it to a 'tomorrow' that will never come and simply fall asleep.
Sleep is possibly our mortal enemy, it is our weakness! So fight against it via anything that keeps you alive and kicking throughout 3 days of projects and rendering.
5. Learn to take breaks - Even if you aren't grade conscious you will have to take breaks. Getting exhausted and the doing half assed work is all good and well, but why do it in the first place?
4. Impress professor's on the FIRST few days - after a while, whenever you raise your hand, the professor will already have an impression that you're the only one who answers and NOT call you. Nifty trick actually~ but also risky.
Aside from that, whenever they see your name-- specially on essays and other works they WILL be biased. COUNT on it. XD
3. Have something to 'pass the time' with- A laptop, tablet, ps vita, or load your phone with games. Because sooner or later you will have one of those lousy schedules. One class in the morning (like 8am) and another in the evening (6pm) all in the same day. So unless you have money to watch a movie or something to pass the time... go get a gadget and just use it all up in liesure. OR maybe find a library and SLEEP.
2. Prep your parents/guardians and yourself- There will be days that you will NOT go home at all. Or if you do, it will be at 3am the next day, and you will have to go to class right after taking a shower. Our course knows no time limits. Sure, 1st year seriously follows strict time tables. But, when it comes to your 2nd year onwards..Video projects, 3D animations, 2D animations and painting classes WILL take your time. And most of those are cumulative work. (So you will need to sleep in one of your classmates place)
1. LOVE something about it - or if you can love ALL of the subjects. We will always have a reason for choosing multimedia arts. Be it the lack of math (or so we think) or because we like drawing. This is your career path for the rest of your long life, and you have to think about the fact that if you don't like it now... when will you?
So drop it or love it and take it seriously FOREVER.
Don’t know what cosplay is?
It’s basically an enriched form of wearing costumes centrally focused on fictional characters found in Japanese Animation or Manga (Japanese Comics). It did not quite originate in Japan, but they did sensationalize it to the point that it becomes an art form. (For some)
Ok, so moving on,
There is a misconception about cosplay that thrives in the Filipino youth nowadays
People are thinking that you can opt to become a ‘cosplayer’, like when one opts to be a singer and such. While true, if you’re rather good at cosplay you can gain an amount of friends and maybe a following— it does not necessarily lead to fame (and fortune) as one would imagine.
And no, it’s not a profession either.
While some people make money out of being guests/hosts. It’s nearly impossible to achieve a similar status unless you have connections or you join local television shows.
Most of us, have day jobs— other hobbies, and another life to lead besides parading in malls in costumes.
There comes the tipping point… which is more important? That new mp3 player you’ve been eyeing for a month, your dream BJD (ball jointed doll) or materials for your dream cosplay (for the month XD) ?
Cosplay (at the least mine) is field with a lot of downs together with the ups. There is nothing as exhilarating as doing a character right and having photos to show for your hard work. Cramming late night when you have work tomorrow is both rewarding and deadly.
I enjoy sketching, writing, studying codes/coding for web, photography, games, music, movies and collecting bunny and Hatsune Miku merchandise.
And when I say I ‘enjoy’, I am willing to spend about 5k to 9k one just one item for any one of those.
I don’t expect any kind of return from it. (Except from web design, I want to be one hell of a programmer someday)
How to do it:
• Time management – easier written than done, but once you get the hang of putting at least an hour or so a day for all of your frustrations, you’ll get better at it
• Budget Constraints – As much as you want to spend ALL of your money on just cosplay, think about it first. And put some for later use.
• Have a day job that does not stress you out (so much)— Mondays come just after Sundays, and that daily stress while making your costume will NOT help you in any way. Find a job that supports your hobbies but does not cause you cardiac arrest.
• LOVE all of it WHOLEHEARTEDLY – I don’t really believe that a mother of four can’t love all her children equally. I’ve seen some people juggle as much as I’m trying to and they’re pretty good at it. It’s the passion that makes you keep at it
• Get rid of negative people— If anyone is saying you can’t do it. Don’t listen to them, or better yet exclude them from people you want to keep. Negativity is NEVER a good thing.
