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.

July’s Favourites

We’re only a little over a week in July but these are my favourite things from this month! The last time I did a monthly favourite post was back in December 2017, so I thought it was time to do another one.

1. Photography

Thanks Carmen for the mug and strawberry matcha

I love taking photos of things I see in my life. I post my favourite photos on this blog, so this blog is my online photo diary. Everyone is welcome to look into a glimpse of my life.

2. Attack on Titan season 3

attack-on-titan-season-3-characters-poster

The new anime season is coming out this month and I’m excited to watch it. I haven’t watched it yet since it’s not out yet but I’m still putting it on this list LOL.

3. Dr Pepper

The intellectual drink, for the chosen ones!” – Okabe Rintarou

There’s no doubt that Steins;Gate increased Dr Pepper sales, but I’ve loved Dr Pepper before I watched it hahaha. When Okabe said that, I felt that.

4. Sushi

I like to eat tuna sushi just like my favourite anime character, Izaya Orihara.

5. Blue mophead hydrangea

Hydrangea macrophylla 'Nikko Blue' Optimized

I would love to cosplay in front of these flowers one day.

6. Mochi ice cream

Mochi-Ice-Cream-III-600x900

I’ve only had it once and it was so good. I can’t wait to eat this again.

7. …

Piercings

I only have two on each ear, but I love wearing earrings. Piercings are a way for me to express myself and I feel like myself with them. I think I’m done getting piercings for now.

8. TOMS shoes

I LOVED my sparkly black TOMS in 2015 but those were trashed a long time ago. I recently bought plain black TOMS and I wear them all the time! I like them because they feel very light.

9. Watermelon

Watermelons are my second favourite fruits! First favourite fruit would be blueberries. I used to be obsessed with strawberries but people change. I know I’m constantly changing.


Maybe you were expecting skincare or makeup products because that’s what most people do, but these are my favourite things of the month. Hahaha.

.

P.S. I KNOW that I talk about myself a lot. However, you must understand that my blog was originally an online diary and it is still an online diary. This blog did not start as an anime blog right off the bat. Anime posts came gradually.

When I write about anime, I often make the post a little personal. However, I think that adding your own experiences are nice because you get a unique perspective.

Travel Journal: Victoria Part 2

These are unedited photos I took at Miniature World in Victoria. Miniature World is a museum where everything is tiny. There were so many displays and admission is $16 for adults. For point of reference… imagine the Colossal Titan from Attack on Titan.

HAHAHA!

The details are incredible.

The train actually runs so this is not just for show.

Every display contains so much – it’s hard to capture everything in just one photo.

IMG_8097

There were a lot of modern displays but I don’t have many photos of them.

Day versus night at the circus. Some displays turn dark and they have cool lights.

Travel Journal: Victoria Part 1

I went on a trip to Victoria with the crew. I took these photos with my camera (not phone camera) so these photos are not edited, except for the last one.

Craigdarroch Castle

I wanted to post a photo of this beautiful piano but unfortunately the picture I took is blurry. 😦

Chinatown

Chinatown in Victoria is tiny! A lot of shops aren’t run by Asian people either but the lanterns look nice. I regret not buying a No Face plush keychain (from Studio Ghibli’s Spirited Away). TT_TT There was a Totoro one too. I do think that Totoro is cuter but I like No Face more.

Ferry

ONE PIECE!

Part 2 will be on Miniature World. I have a lot more photos for that which is why there are two parts.

THE PLAN

Guess what? I’ve done 37 cosplays in the two years I’ve been cosplaying! The 38th cosplay will be posted soon. I’ve cosplayed as anime characters, vocaloid, and game characters.

Characters I would like to do again:

  • Monkey D. Luffy from One Piece – holding Chopper plush
  • Mitsuha from Kimi no Na Wa/Your Name – never got a chance to do full body shot
  • Yuki Nagato from The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya – full body shot with book
  • Saber from Fate/stay night – full body shot
  • Gumi Matryoshka – full body shot
  • Gumi Difficult Love/Nankai Ren’ai – holding love letter
  • Gumi Difficult Love/Nankai Ren’ai – full body shot
  • Misa Amane – with black nail polish and makeup

I think that before I spend more money on cosplays, I should get these done first.

If you live in BC, Canada and are interested, I’m selling a few cosplays. These are all size small:

  • Lovely Complex cardigan $10 – You can cosplay as Risa or Otani.
  • Kido Tsubomi hoodie $10 – from The Kagerou Project/Mekukacity Actors
  • Ururu t-shirt and skirt $5 – from Bleach

See instagram.com/misswaves_shop for more items for sale. As always, I’m open to selling most of my cosplays so even if it is not listed, just ask.

Sick but Happy

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.

10 Happy Things

I was feeling quite pessimistic and negative, even though I am generally optimistic or neutral. That’s why I decided to blog about ten things that make me happy. Hopefully writing this post will make me feel a bit more appreciative of the little things in life, and it will be something I can read back on in the future.

1. Grass Jelly drink

Drinks_Chin_Chin_Grass_Jelly_Honey_grande

My friend gave me a canned grass jelly drink the other day and I loved it. Grass jelly is my favourite bubble tea topping to begin with, but having it as its own drink is cool. It’s a black drink! It’s the perfect amount of sweetness for me (which is not very sweet) and there are small grass jelly chunks. I definitely plan on buying a pack for myself.

2. Boys Love manhua

9812211dd3e4c86c94665019bae408cc1a1903c7v2_hq

LOL LOL. I barely read boys love series now but I follow one shonen ai series, which is Here U Are. It’s by a Chinese author and it’s an ongoing series. Everything is in colour and the art is absolutely amazing. The pacing is slow, which makes the chapters seem short. I’m okay with this though because the relationship shouldn’t be rushed. Every time there is a new update, my day is made.

3. Tales of Vesperia

tales-of-vesperia_1528664687770

This is one of the games I’m currently playing. Most of the JRPGs I’ve played were traditional turn-based so I’m surprised that I’m enjoying the gameplay.  The story, characters and art are all good. I look forward to playing this all the time.

4. Making money

A feeling I hate is spending money without having earned anything. I’m happy that I have a part-time job now so I don’t feel like a lazy butt all the time.

5. Nice people on Twitter

I seriously get so much support on Twitter. Whenever I tweet that I’m in a bad mood, people write words of encouragement. Sometimes people send me private messages. Just the fact that people are trying to cheer me up is the best feeling. Plus, when I’m upset I don’t think rationally but others bring me back to normal. On top of that, I’ve never met these people in real life! It’s refreshing knowing how good the community is. My experience with Twitter has mostly been with anime fans and anime bloggers.

Even my tweets about random thoughts receive a lot of support. I don’t like messaging the same person too many times because I think I will annoy them, so Twitter is the place for me to write down all my thoughts. I don’t like keeping my thoughts bottled up.

6. NARUKO Tea Tree Refreshing Cooling Sunscreen

8939556405278

This is very specific. I don’t have this product yet, but I am planning on buying it. Not only is it sunscreen, it’s also an anti-acne product. I watched a video of Bii today and he gave his review on this product. All the online reviews I’ve seen are really positive too. I can’t wait to try this out.

7. Hm…

Matcha ice cream

matcha-green-tea-ice-cream

I can’t wait to eat this again. It’s not very sweet!

8. Latte

Protein-Packed Latte_square

I really like lattes. They look so cute and they also taste good. I would like to go to a cafe by myself or with a friend and order a hot drink. I also love London Fogs.

9. Cosplay

There are a couple of cosplays I’m planning on doing in the near future, as well as future cosplays I would love to do. I want to buy a long pink wig but I’m also saving money at the same time. Ah…

10. Hm

Bed

I’m ready to go to sleep hahaha. Hopefully I’ll have a nice dream.

These ten things are pretty specific to how I’m feeling at this moment. I’m sure most of these will change on any other day. I feel better now!
