I went a thrift store after a friend said I might find anime related goods or materials for cosplay. Unfortunately, it was not my lucky day but it was still worth checking out because I picked up a couple of cool things!
I love the thrift store. They carry so much cool stuff.
After I bought the tote bag, I used it as my shopping bag hahaha. It was $1.99.
I have read all of The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, but this book contains The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes as well. I have read a few stories from it but I’m rereading all the stories. Okay so it was $4.99 so I told the cashier I didn’t want it anymore because I already read most of the book already… then the cashier changed it to $2.99. O__O So nice!
I like buying my own books because I write in them and highlight certain parts. The book was not written in at all when I got it.
I usually write my shopping lists on sticky notes, and once I’m done with them I use them as bookmarks HAHAHA. It won’t fall out because it’s sticky. I fold the sticky note over the top of a page so it is super secure. It doesn’t stick out, but it’s still easy to find the page.
***My thrift store walkthrough***
Thankfully this thrift store was clean. I’m allergic to dust so I don’t go to thrift stores often at all. When I do, I always go to the book section for novels and manga. Then I check out the figurines because a worker told me they sometimes get nendoroids! They’re probably knock-offs but if it looks decent and costs very little, it’s not bad. (Pro tip: Value Village sells foam heads around Halloween. It’s an essential item for any cosplayer – used to style, cut wigs or for storage purposes.) Then I go to the plush section. I did see a Tuxedo Mask plush for $1.99 (from Sailor Moon) but didn’t buy it. Then I check out bags but I’m extremely picky so I usually just buy one or two things in total every time. If I’m looking for cosplay materials, I look at clothes and shoes! Thrift stores are life-savers for last minute cosplays.
now my desk is covered with Pokemon figures and Funko Pop lol
I went to Summer Festival again this year and bought Durarara!! pins for my future ita bag. It will be DRRR themed with a focus on Izaya. I would make it all Izaya, but that would be a little difficult… unless I order everything online, which IS a possibility. Moya had a booth and sold buttons! She actually pressed the middle four buttons for me and gave one to me for free. ❤
The keychain is Gumshoe from Ace Attorney. I also bought a brown wig.

Thanks Tenshi and Rayz for the song recommendations. You guys know my music taste hahaha
Some of you guys know that I hate the sun and heat. Well, a couple of days ago I got a fever and it didn’t go away until I spent the night downstairs on the sofa. It returned after I spent the next day in my room… probably because my room is on the third floor. I also hate winter so RIP me.
That’s why I’ve decided to stay indoors for the next few days. I cancelled my plans for today and watched a lot of One Piece. I feel a lot better now but in the beginning I couldn’t eat solid foods so I just ate almond flavoured tofu LOL. I really like it!
Back in July 2017 I wrote a blog post on a DIY idea for your room. (Click here.) Now I have photos! The left one is a polaroid of my friends and I in a family pose LOL. On the right is a picture I printed at Walmart off my phone. It’s from the time I went to a concert performed by EXO.

I just found out that Bii has his own filter in the beauty app, Meitu. Be Your Light is a newer song of his. The filter is punny because Bii and Be sound the same. I dedicated a blog post to him last year. You can read about him HERE.
This is way overdue but thank you Cammy for watching a drama I reviewed and recommended! It’s the Boys Love Taiwanese drama, HIStory 2: Boundary Crossing. Cammy told me that she gave it a 5/5 rating!
Also check out Neha’s first impressions post on Cunning Single Lady. I recommended this Korean drama in an earlier blog post of mine and I feel so happy whenever people take the time to listen to my recommendation and watch the show!
I’ve been posting a lot of cosplay pictures but I would also like to post more photos of me being myself.
Looking back at photos from just a few months ago (Sept 2017 – Jan 2018), I feel like I looked so young. I felt young too. I don’t really dress like this anymore. Bye bye, this style. (By the way, this is kind of a response or update to this post. I’m not sure why it’s one of my most popular posts hahaha.)
- choker & Tokyo Ghoul anime necklace
- hoodies & layers
- pigtails & side pony tail
- not shown: brown combat boots
I don’t know why my clothing style changes every few months. Maybe I get tired of the same style. I like to think that I’m always changing and evolving. c:
Now I like to wear wide black pants with Adidas Superstar sneakers. I don’t have photos yet because I just got into the style, hahaha. Even the jewelry I wear is different too. I don’t take as many outfit photos anymore but maybe there will be an update in the future…
Episodes 9 and 10 of My Hero Academia season 3 were amazing. I’ll watch every episode, but the episodes with villains are the ones I care about the most. If the episode’s focus is solely on the students, it’s not as enjoyable for me. In these recent episodes, I loved it how the professional superheroes came together to fight the villains. It was cool seeing the villains in one place. I am especially interested in the relationship between Tomura, my favourite character, and his master.

If you’re an anime blogger, you probably know Moya from her blog, The Moyatorium. If you’ve read a certain older blog post of mine, you would know that I met her for the first time in February of this year. I bumped into her on the bus a while back, so this is technically our third time meeting!
We went to Hachibei, a Japanese restaurant my Psych professor told me about. I ordered katsudon (pork cutlet) and Moya ordered the tofu hamburger.

I hate feeling bored so I carry games and books (sometimes manga) to keep myself busy. It’s mostly for public transit and if I have to wait for people.
