Desucon Frostbite 2013

Finally I've been recovered from the sleepiness I had.. well that's what you should expect after three nights without sleep. Yes, I didn't sleep for the entire weekend. And I already need to apologize for the lack of pictures, because I know you would love them. However, I remembered to take out my camera way too late and the stress I felt before art alley kept me barely going. I almost fainted during those 4 hours I was selling those paintings. Luckily, I had wonderful feedback.

But first, on Saturday we left from Savonlinna with two of my friends and one girl I didn't know. She was quiet but nice and I hope I'll see her next time too :3 She cosplayed Connor from Assassin's Creed III and that awakened my urge to cosplay Ezio Auditore from Assassin's Creed II.. hopefully I can make that costume for some upcoming con. Stay tuned for that ;3

By then I haven't slept for two nights and was already hype about everything - I felt like a wnb japan-fan again! But I had drunk 3 small bottles of ice coffee and it made me feel sick. I almost trowed up, but nothing came out. By the night I was back normal again and figured out, that all that coffee made so much air in my stomach that I had to burp and fart all the time. Before bed time it was over and I was finally able to paint my last product: 30x70cm Shinya-sama in made-costume! It looks awful though, but that's something you should expect.. since it's painted in hurry.. during night.. in a bathroom. It was the only painting that didn't sell, too. Here's some WIP-pics and during the bus trip back home~ I think he will be on my next apartment's wall, even though I'm not that satisfied with the result.

All together 7 paintings were sold out of 8. There was Ruki from the GazettE, Hamasaki Ayumi, GACKT, Miyavi and Jensen Ackles. There also were two ordered paintings: Reita from the GazettE and T.O.P. Both customers were satisfied with their purchases :3 Also, if you liked to order a painting of your own, please contact me and I'll keep in touch (random salesman talk..).
I stood about 4 hours at the art valley and all those 7 were already sold and I was able to leave back home about 4 hours earlier than originally planned! Thank goodness I didn't pre-order return ticket but only one-way. It made deciding when to leave much easier.

"I think I'm adorable."
Thank you again to all customers for purchasing my lousy art~! Jensen was the one who turned everyone's heads towards my table XD And yet, he was the second last one bought.. And I thought he would be the very first one to go!

There's pretty much nothing more to mention, since I was half asleep during the whole weekend. We exchanged fast greetins with Jani, but too bad I wasn't quite PRESENT.. more like a ghost or spirit in the air, lol. My mind was completely having some strange thoughts.. literally! I also noticed the same phenomenon while painting Shinya-sama: I thought all the lines in his hair were soldiers and a huge battle was about to begin where actually there's a white reflection of light... Those times when you really want to ask your subconsciousness "what the actual fuck?"

What else? Well.. we did watch "PUTOUS" with the girls in our hotel and laughed our ass off with stupid jokes. One was a mind-image of an aboriginal man hanging upside down outside our room's window saying "you rang? How about a small breakfast?" with broken Finnish: "kutsuiko? Ehkä pieni valipala~?" (the Finns seen that creme bonjour commercial may remember that chef dude in a fridge giving a woman a piece of bread) I know it sounds crazy, but it was fun during the time XD
Maybe it'll be funnier if that aboriginal was replaced with Ezio Auditore.. See? I knew you would smile :DD (maybe I should draw some fanart out of this mindimage.. or could somebody from you guys do it for me, puwease? ;'D)

I'm sorry, but there's no pictures of my lolita costume I wore, yet. Only one guy took a picture right before I was heading to get back my things and leave the whole city, lol. I should've taken a picture or two before heading out from the hotel, since that time was pretty good for it (and now when I think about it, I even had the camera in my hand! Guess I was so exhausted I didn't realize..). BUT I might take some good photos in our school's studio some day soon.

All together about 80€ profit was made out from those paintings and I think I might do something similar again.. with better prepared schedule of course. Last minute panic isn't the bast answer for this kind of thing, at all. Now I've got some money to put aside for the time I move out from here. Moving is expensive, like everything else. Speaking of that, I purchased Assassin's Creed Brotherhood and Assassin's Creed Revelations in one disc from dischop.fi! It cost only 19.95€ to buy that double game and it's much cheaper than buying them on separated discs. So, technically there's 3 games to play: mom bought Valkyria Chronicles for me a couple of days before my birthday. Thank you mom! :3 BUT I made a promise to myself that I won't play any games before I graduate from Savonlinna Taidelukio, so.. I guess I bought that 4 month license for Xsplit for nothing xD Also, I'm trying to get an HDD from huuto.net with a low price.. there's a possibility that I'll get 500GB with less than 40€ and that's a very good deal! The bad thing is, that the auction ends about 3,5 days from now, so there might be others to bid me out.

And while speaking of games, here's a short video from Sony, which creeps me out: I can clearly smell PS4 coming out already..
Want to know why I think so? Because this totally reminds me of the GazettE's commercial of their two-parted live tour which ended at Tokyo Dome, WHICH was one of their ultimate goals to get to perform at. They didn't directly say it in their commercial at that time but it was kind of obvious they were teasing, since otherwise all the tour-dates and places would've been released without any hesitation. And this Sony's commercial is just the same: giving the date, but not actual content.

I put myself on the e-mail list, so I'll be informed right away what the fuck is all this fuzz about. And I will burst into flames in a bad way if this was PS4 that is going to be released. BECAUSE I JUST GOT PS3 SUPER SLIM. That would be so short time period between PS3 SS and PS4 release dates.. oO I guess we'll see tomorrow..

But as I usually do with posts, I always link some music too. Here's some that brought me back some memories from my childhood and PlayStation one games.. dunno why, but it did~

Take care!
