one thing ill always appreciate about Winry is she had no time for ur shonen bullshit
even the “I WAN’T TO BECOME STRONGER!”
like her response to Ed saying that was word for word “ew are you guys becoming muscleheads or something?” like “oh god fuckin’ spare me let me OFF of this train not here for this”
and Ed’s gets so offended and has to defend himself with “NO I MEANT MENTALLY FOR THE MOST PART GOD WINRY UR SO HURTFUL”
"why would anyone on the planet be afraid of Ed i don’t understand"
"so the reason Ed doesn’t cry is because he’s an idiot who tries too hard 2 be tough got it"
"WINRY MY FAIR BELOVED I MUST ASK YOU TO LEAVE THE COUNTRY DURING THIS EPIC BATTLE IN CASE EVERYONE DIES"
"why would just I leave the country if you really care evacuate the whole country seriously what does warning only me do? that makes so sense ed your logic makes no sense. i’m stayin’ right here this is my home base i don’t have time for these dramatics get ur shit together”
winry rockbell: not impressed by manly dramatics
AFA 2013 Day 1
So this weekend was AFA 2013, at Suntec City convention hall ><
Cosplayed as Winry from Fullmetal Alchemist Brother hood on Saturday. Stayed over at my Edward’s house the night before to finish up her automail ><
Only finished painting the foam parts the night before. Made them the previous week at my Edward shikiftw’s house >< First time making metallic parts. Had to weather them a bit also. I think they turned out ok for my first time >< (Next major project is Big Kero’s armour…for the same person =x=)
Also…points at huge screw in 2 parts in the pic. You see that little thing? I nearly lost it at my friend’s house, then nearly lost it while spray painting. The episodes we were watching while cutting it out…the 2 episodes where Winry forgot a screw and then the aftermath where Edward got hurt and she thought it was her fault.
Important note: My Edward likes to play anime while sewing. She picks a series then plays them on random. That’s right, it was randomised and magically decided to play those 2 episodes in order (I think there are supposed to be a few in between them) What. Seriously, what. I cannot even…
Seriously love how it turned out though =w= Also had to stick it onto Ed’s glove with UHU…while she was still wearing the glove. Took a while to get it off the first time ><”’
Went to the event quite late as both of us didn’t sleep the whole night (I took a 1 hour “nap”) because both of us were not done with out Sunday costumes as well. In fact she still had some stuff left to do for Edward and only started in the morning ><”’
The wig was also cut and styled in the morning before the event. And the ahoge was magically defying gravity without the help of wires or anything >< Just good old-fashioned hairspray =w=
Also had fun making a little gag prop XP (Yes, my wrench is a real one. It was fairly heavy ><)
Blew up a white balloon, drew chibi Angry!Ed on it then stuck on an ahoge made of yellow construction paper >< It surprisingly lasted the whole day.
Everyone kept mistaking our Alphonse for Edward though ><”’ She was actually the Alphonse from the first anime’s movie, Conqueror of Shamballa. The rest of us were from Brotherhood ><
Shingeki no Kyojin was a major anime at the con. The was a huge inflatable Colossol Titan head which we had fun taking pictures with ^^
Our Colonol Mustang BURNING ALL THE TITANS! o/
There was also a titan wall.
Hands down. Best photo 5ever. Every other photo can go home.
Specially asked my Edward to take off her automail arm. Then later she complained because to put it on again she had to take off her outer coat and inner jacket thing XP
Overall it was ok I guess. Didn’t do much because we arrived at the event late then spent like an hour or so eating lunch >< It was fun bullyi—I mean taking photos with my team. Hope we’ll get to have a proper photoshoot in the future ^w^
Winry Rockbell costest
Well, went to watch Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters in the morning. It was meh as I expected. I don’t remember much of the early books but I’m pretty sure they changed a lot of stuff. The rendering of the CG stuff was like :/ …at some points, especially the Chronos part it sort of…looked like videogame cinematic…? Idk…basically not a huge fan of the movies ><
Anyway, yea so when I went home, did a costest of Winry since I’ve had the wig for a while >w<
Spent a while trimming and styling the fringe part. Grabbed a wrench from the toolbox :P
Happened to have a Winry-ish outfit so wore that. Was too lazy to put on all her earrings though >3<
Gonna be doing her jacket and skirt outfit for AFA (don’t like to expose tummy ><)
Already have the cloth but still haven’t started any sewing XP Not much measuring/drafting needed anyway. Already have 2 jackets I sewed before to trace the pattern from and pleated skirts are also not difficult. Just a pain to iron all the pleats first =3= Only left the inner tank top to look for =w=
Had fun doing random pics to annoy my Edward, shikiftw 8D
Kinokuniya (this is why I have a membership card lolol XD)
Was at Takashimaya so you know… XP
8D Spot the odd one out lol XD
Mostly wanted to see is they had the Iron Man volumes I wanted. And was also curious to see if they sold the Avatar comics ><
Hey I don’t see me in this picture.
Oops :P Forgot my chibi Iron Man. Oh well =w=
At least you bought 2 more of my books. I knew you couldn’t resist me *smirk*
…I bought 2 Avatar books too…
…I’m bigger B)
This is actually no. 2 and . Couldn’t find 1 but I saw these two were 1 story arc so just bought them together. This is the story arc with Pepper in the Rescue suit XD I think it’s set after Civil War though so…Captain America is dead? >~<
Heard that Deadpool’s comics are interesting so bought 1. :3
Was looking around the whole Graphic Novels section but couldn’t find any of the Avatar comics. Gave up and used the search station. Apprantly its in the children’s section. Oh yeah, it’s a kid’s cartoon. lol XP
There’s also a Part 3 which wasn’t in stock >~<
The only manga I got today LOL >< Barely even stepped into the manga section. Just saw this was on a shelf I was passing by so just grabbed it and continued walking XP
Finally the last book of the FMA series ><
FullMetal Alchemist: The Sacred Star of Milos
The stuff that was supposed to arrive with my Yuya CDs. FMA Sacred Dtar of Milos Special edition! >w<
Actually came last Friday. Missed the postman by about 1 hour so went to the post office to pick it up on Monday. Went to Joey’s house after that so had to carry the package all the way there.
My address covered by Joey’s black bunny >w< (Kurogi I think…?><”’)
Was a bit bigger than I thought. Thought it would come in a puffy envelope like my Yuya CDs but apparently there’s more stuff so it was in a little box. No wonder yesasia split the shipping. Oh well, can’t complain if the shipping’s free >w<
The outer cardboard box. Was wrapped in 2 layers of bubble wrap.
The box cover.
All the stuff. That’s a lot of storyboards.
>w< First time owning a japanese anime storyboard book. I always find the japanese storyboards kinda weird because I only learnt the american style in school. So I’m used to drawing them in separate boxes and horizontally.
Cover of the DVD case.
2 DVDs inside. I think the left is the movie and the right is the extras. Like behind-sthe-scenes and that sort of stuff. Still haven’t watched it yet ><”’
Also came with a film strip thingy! >w< So cool XD
The 3 storyboard books and an Interview book. The Interview book also has some character model sheets inside >w<
Huge shopping trip today ><
I…bought another bag OTL.
Ahh tokidoki~ >w<
My mom managed to get my dad to buy her one too >< I think she seems to be liking this brand more than e now. That skull keychain on my bag was grabbed from hers >w<”’
There was some sort of promotion. 1 free keychain for vey regular-priced item. There was only 1 design though so I got 2 of the same. Really dislike those yellow lips though. Thinking of repainting the lips. Like 1 black, 1 pink…or maybe candy lips? haha need to wait until holidays anyway =.=
…erm….So my mum wanted to buy some cleansing oil or something like that. And I happened to spot this…. yea… Not sure if its visible here but the lashes are black and purple. >w<
Ah yeah, all this was bought at Takashimaya. And of course, no trip to Taka is complete without…going to Kinokuniya as well! \(>0<)/
One Piece! I was only gonna get 6, 7 and 8…then my parents dug out the 9 and then they said “Just get until 10 lah. Nice number” OTL
Was not my idea to get so many I swear! ^(0_0)^
Sailor Moon no. 3!!!!!
Cardcaptor Sakura! 1 more to the end. Magic Knight Rayearth 2 still not out yet though ;_;
Black Jack 2.
Didn’t want to spend too much so didn’t bother to check out the books section for more Suzumiya Haruhi or Terry Pratchett.
…There is absolutely no more space left in my manga bookshelf OTL
