So turns out, my computer was back to it's old "randomly rebooting" tricks in a matter of days after I thought I got it fixed so I had to return to the computer shop to see if I could get it fixed yet AGAIN but the problem was far more complicated than originally thought...The power supply wasn't the problem, the motherboard is...and at this point, there isn't much that can be done.
So now, for the first time in years
, I am "PC-less" and will have to be for months because I simply cannot afford a new computer at the moment...
I loved my computer dearly and it will greatly be missed. Good bye Dimension, we had a good run.
Dell Dimension 9200

OOOoook so, I got my computer fixed and my suspicions were right, the power supply was what went wrong. Unfortunately, getting it cleaned (cuz apparently I had kittens camping in my tower also), a brand new power supply and other misc. fees cost me $200 so no Rapunzel costume for me this year
I can't even begin to explain how bummed I am about this but having a functioning computer was more important than cosplay...
So here's my official cosplay list for Anime North 2011
, Super Mario Bros.SATURDAY
, A Link to The Past (This zelda right here [link]SUNDAY
: Will most likely be myself since it's the day we're heading back home...Though I'm not sure yet...
I will finish and wear Princess Aurora for Otakuthon. (I've been doing lots of Princesses lately it would seem O.o)
Been a long time since I (seriously) updated my journal so I felt like catching up some! First off, Cosplay!
Because of major events, Ive had to alter my Cosplay choices for this year. Number one reason for changes:
Im finally fulfilling a great desire of mine; Ill be going to Disney World this summer after well over a decade of wanting to go back (Im literally pissing myself with excitement
). Since going to WDW isnt exactly cheap, Ive had to make some changes to the list
Unfortunately, Pit will have to wait a little
The wings and the weapons would have been a little much for my tight budget at the moment so I had to bench him
As a replacement for Pit, I went ahead and let myself be inspired by Disney (influenced by my future trip I guess
) and settled on my favorite classic Disney Princess of all Time: Sleeping Beautys Princess Aurora
. The BLUE dress! (She's about 50% done!)
It seemed like a good option because Ive made a dress before so I (kinda) know what Im doing but at the same time, Im putting a lot of pressure on myself because Ive held that character to such a high standard since I was a very small child. I always idealized her beauty and worshiped her fairy tale but frankly, I dont know if I can pull that off! LoL I will certainly try my hardest to honor my favorite Princess! (And Ive had to make my own pattern! Gaah! Its tough! Lol) Number two reason:
My beloved computer just crapped on me
It magically booted itself last night while it was turned off (which really had me believing it was a ghost at first lol) and now it just doesnt boot all the way, it makes this weird little noise and it constantly keeps on trying and trying to boot so I have to unplug it from the wall for it to remain turned off
(Im thinking the power supply might be the suffering piece but I still dont understand how it turned itself on though
Until I find out how much it will cost to fix it and what the problem is exactly, I have to put Rapunzel on ice
(This seriously bums me out
I already have some of the fabric and accessories
I really dont want to give up this one
Roll call! Whos going to Anime North? Raise your hands!
I hope Ill get to see some people this year because I didnt really get to see/catch up with ANYBODY I know last year
which kinda sucked
Also, I like to warn that since I do not
wear my glasses during Cosplay (and I dont wear contacts), I can be a little blind at times
If I walk by someone I know and dont say Hi, it is NOT because Im ignoring you, I just didnt see you
Though it needs some SERIOUS fixing, Ill be bringing Princess Peach (because I promised ~KiraLacus
that I would Cosplay with her as she sports her Daisy costume for the first time) and depending on the computer situation, my other cosplay will either be Princess Zelda from A Link To the Past that I didnt get to wear yet or Princess Aurora/Sleeping Beauty. I updated my Cosplay list at the end of this journal
Ive been thinking about getting a tumblr account
should I get one? Still not too sure how the whole thing works
Anyway, Ill stop ranting
I think I wrote enough lol Have a great week-end you guys!
