Round 1 – Fight!

Chun Li every day cosplayDon’t let the Street Fighter shout out fool you, because today is a very big day. I thought I was done with the hard part, but I think my fight is just beginning. Waiting for the results of my surgery (on top of just healing itself) has been a long journey, but not knowing whether or not I would need chemo was the next big thing I was waiting for. I wish I had better news to share, but I will in fact be going through 4 rounds of chemo in the next few months. Even though I tried to prepare myself for the worst, it was still hard to hear. The decision even came down to percentages. 12% to be exact. I was basically told the difference between going through chemo or not going through chemo was 12%. But what’s really 12%? Continue reading

Armed and Ready

Tee Fury Apocalypse LeggingsWith all that’s been going on with me this past month – multiple visits to the doctor’s, getting poked and prodded with tons of needles, and just feeling worn out inside and out, it’s times like this where I really feel like insides need to feel like my outsides. I promise I’ll go into more details about my condition soon, but today I’m going to be fighting an uphill battle, just waiting for things to be over. It’s going to be a long journey, but I’m armed and ready to take on the battle.

Living Dead Clothing - 2600 Spandex Bodysuit

Gaming consoles come and go, but there’s definitely one that no one will ever forget – the Atari 2600. Who knew just a simple joystick and single button could create so much fun? I mean, if you think about how complicated games are now versus back then and the time we’ve spent on them, it’s sort of amazing how those simplistic games were able to hold our attention! I think every kid in the ’80s had an Atari or had a friend with an Atari and I myself spent many hours at other people’s houses playing Frogger, Asteroids, and Space Invaders, just to name a few. My love for gaming has waxed and weened over the years, but I’ll always have a love for the old school stuff. This bodysuit from Living Dead Clothing is spot on with it’s classic graphics, great fit, and I’m just loving everything about it. So if you’re looking for some fun and geeky spandex, definitely check them out! Oh, and their Moogle dress is seriously to die for!! Oogles of Moogles!!

Cosplay Cure

Parappa the Rapper Cosplay - I Gotta BelieveWe’ve all heard the phrase “When life gives you lemons… you make lemonade!” Well, for me, I’ve been given some lemons lately.

So when life gives me lemons, I cosplay! Parappa the Rappa is still one of my favorite games from the Playstation 1 and also one of the few games that I haven’t been able to beat! >:( Continue reading

Praise the Sun!

Dark Souls Praise the Sun Tank Outfit

When you have enough hobbies like I do in addition to a full time job, it’s always a struggle to find a good chunk of time to play video games. I don’t know about you, but I always feel like I’m one step behind when it comes to keeping up with the latest games! Maybe it’s me getting older or being busy, but it’s been almost a year since I beat Dark Souls and it’s only recently that I just got back into playing Dark Souls 2. Of course, I’m already behind on DS2 since that came out a little over a year ago! And now that I’m somewhat deep into the sequel, out comes Bloodborne, From Software’s latest masochistic game. I’ve already spontaneously purchased the PS4 Bloodborne bundle (eek!), but knowing me, it may be another 6 months before I actually play it! So in celebration of another great release from From Software, today I’m wearing my DIY Dark Souls tank! Praise the Sun!
