"Daunting" is my word for the day!

I've been having such a hard time thinking of what to write about on LiveJournal these days. Last night I decided it must be that my creative writing skills have gone on strike with the other writers of America. But that doesn't make a whole lot of sense.

Anyway, this morning we got another package! The delivery guy was so cute, too. He handed me the package and started to walk away as I said, "Thank you!" and then he turned around and said, "You're welcome." Though come to think of it, that seems a strange thing to find adorable, but that's just how I am I guess.

Inside the package were three more volumes of Sekai de Ichiban Dai-kirai, soon(ish) to become I Hate You More Than Anyone (English version). This is very exciting, because the volume we're working on right now has one of those, "WHA!?" endings. Not that we didn't see it coming, as Athena points out, but the fact that it stops with that makes you want to read the next one. The problem with it, though, is that we're working on the series right now, so while we're like, "Yay! More Sekaichi!!" we're also kind of like, "We are going to die." (Which is probably true either way; it just probably won't actually be caused by Sekaichi.) I decided it's like cosplay. It's really fun to think about, but pretty daunting to actually work on. But! we like it a lot anyway.

And that brings me to cosplay. We actually have plansy type things! Nothing's really decided yet, though, which would be irritating in that I can't buy fabric and get to work, except that we can't buy fabric and get to work anyway. Part of it is that we're (sort of) busy working on work work (perhaps I should think about using a thesaurus... nah), but the main part of it is transportation, blah. But! our anime buddy is coming over to watch anime on Saturday, and she once said she could live at Hancock Fabrics, so maybe we can make plans.

I think the one for sure thing is that we need to make Ouran uniforms. We actually might have group plans(!!!!) to do non-uniform Host Club costumes, too, but we decided we need the uniforms anyway. The biggest problem I have with Host Club though is that I'm afraid of wigs. I mean, I kind of have experience making costumes, so experimenting is still a little daunting, but doable. But I have no experience with hair styling (except for knowing how to brush, comb, and braid), so trying to recreate the Hitachiin's hairstyle is super daunting to the max.

Hyuga's costume in Neo Angelique has been screaming at me, too, but I'm not sure who would wear it or anything. It is really pretty, though.

Today I'm thankful for plans to watch anime this weekend, having more Sekaichi, plans to order pizza for dinner tonight (yummy♥), image songs from Matantei Loki Ragnarok, and Netflix's super speed.
