You're most like Kaoru!
You're like Kaoru! Many may perceive you as the strong-and-silent type. You hardly talk and you don't really need to: you prefer working alone. You keep to yourself so much that others don't know much about you at first glance. You may be antisocial, but the comrades that you do have can trust you with their lives.

Which Uninhabited Planet Survive character are you most like?

I've been watching Shuffle! for a while now. Originally I downloaded it because of a review (not even a positive one) I read. Teen boy gets told that both the princess of Heaven and the princess of Hell want to marry him and he needs to pick one... it seemed like it might be amusing. Well the first 13 or so are amusing, the princesses are competing with the live-in, the senpai, and even the preteen (who seems to be the smartest one of the lot). There are a ton of panty shots, a fair amount of bare breasts, and some lesbian hints here and there. Nice, mindless fluff.

And then episode 14 came out. The preteen becomes the focus of angst. Then the princesses reveal new layers of WTF. The senpai reveals a sad and angsty past. Then you get to episodes 18-20 and things really hit the fan. I've come to the conclusion that, with the possible exceptions of the pervy male best friend, the school reporter, the preteen (who's not to blame for her problems, at all), and maybe the king of Hell, every single one of them is majorly fucked up.

After those last three episodes I'd wouldn't be surprised if this turns into one of those "everybody dies" anime.

I'm co-maintaining a new community with [livejournal.com profile] toshirodragon and I thought it might be a good idea to let people know. :)

[livejournal.com profile] paintedshoji is an anime and manga focused desktop wallpaper community. Any genre goes, shounen, shoujo, yaoi/shounen-ai, yuri/shoujo-ai, whatever. Fanart based wallpapers are accepted so long as the poster is the artist. Because my co-maintainer and I are coming at this from the yaoi/yuri angle the community is friends locked and adults only.

First, write down the names of 12 characters. Then read and answer the questions. You can't look at the questions (or click on the cut) until you write down the 12 characters you're going to use.

01 Kurama (Yu Yu Hakusho)
02 Hiei (Yu Yu Hakusho)
03 Yusuke (Yu Yu Hakusho)
04 Kurogane (Tsubasa Chronicle)
05 Fye (Tsubasa Chronicle)
06 Motoko aka: The Major (Ghost in the Shell: Standalone Complex)

I've been chatting with someone about cosplaying Kaede (from Inuyasha) and came up with this idea for her friend with lots of long dark hair.

Diagram behind the cut )

The basic idea is that for a person with a lot of hair a wig might be a bit of a hassle. Since Kaede (and several other characters I can think of) ties her hair in a very low ponytail there's theoretically room for a snood (a cloth or net sack to hold a person's hair) above the tie.

Now if someone were cosplaying Kikyo and already had long dark hair (long in this case being sufficient to bind into a tail at the appropriate point) this is overkill. If their hair is dark and long enough then all they really need is a (possibly modified) Halo frame (if they don't want to cut fringe) and some wefted hair to match their own hair to add length to the ponytail.

Getting back to the snood-wig, it could also be used by someone with shorter hair if they wanted to have something lighter than a full wig (since even old lady anime characters have huge amounts of hair it seems). They could just add some stuffing to the snood (and possibly a small weight in the bottom to make the hair behave more naturally).

Disclaimer: I have not built a snood-wig so this is all theory based on my knowledge of things like wigs and sewing.

If my server were up I'd put an image here, but for now you just get a link. Scroll down a bit to get to the tachikoma.

Edit to add: Tachikoma Grand Theft Auto mod.

ARGH! You can't do that to the politically clueless long haired bishie geekboy!

Well I've finally made it through all my posts and tagged them. I'll probably refine the tags a bit (some ramble posts will be changed to tidbit, and tidbit might become life, or life might branch out from tidbit and ramble...) but for now it's done.

I should perhaps also go through and put subjects on everything.... "No subject" is unhelpful when searching for something.

My server is still down and I'm getting a bit irritated. I've changed my LJ mail address to my backup meowmail address so I can keep track of people replying to things here. Perhaps it's time to see if [livejournal.com profile] hafoc can set up another mailbox with Charter (from what I've seen on their site there should be slots for nine more boxes).


This song would make an interesting AMV...

Loveless episode 12 - Endless

Talk about an appropriate title. I hope that the ending is an indication of another season or OVAs being forthcoming at some point.
