Anyone who does anything that requires some sort of creativity has met the devil called artist block. You might feel inspired but your hands and brain is just not working to get you the result you want.
In my case, I always end up with tons of crushed paper and a blank canvas. The devil visits me pretty often and likes to lurk around forever. I usually have a hard time getting out of an artist block but recently I’ve finally come up with ways to deal with the devil myself.
These are just some ways that worked for me and hopefully it’ll be helpful for you too!
Finding reference pictures has been very helpful in getting me out of an artist block. I mainly lurk around Instagram to get picture reference from either people I follow, celebrities, photographers or even anime accounts.
The reference pictures are from @ponymakeup on Instagram. She is a Korean celebrity make up artist. Her Instagram is filled with awesome pictures to reference from.

For the longest time I’ve always wanted to cosplay at some anime/game convention. Cosplaying just looks really fun in general and who doesn’t like fun?
I’ve always promised myself that I’ll cosplay someday for some event but being a procrastinator, things like this with no deadline just gets brushed off my list of things I want to do. So here I am to write a post to keep a reminder for myself that GIRL, GO GET YOUR ASS TO A EVENT IN A COS BY THE END OF THIS YEAR.
I’ve always wanted to cosplay. It looks so fun but at the same time it’s so expensive. 99% of my money goes to food and honestly I don’t think I can afford buying a full costume and still satisfy my cravings. I would have started cosplay ages ago if not for it being a costly hobby. I’ve now started working and have my own money so why not spend some on trying out cosplay right. I’m all fired up and I got a part time job too, that means I should start saving up for my cos.
That said, I still need to make a decision on what I want to cosplay as. I am very tall so a lot of characters are out of my list even though I would love to cosplay as them. I am 178cm tall thus that does limit the characters I can cos. It just wouldn’t look as nice. I mean imagine this tall ass girl cosplaying as Emma Ai. It just doesn’t work. I know, I know, don’t let your body type stop you from cosplaying anything you want to. You can go ahead but not me. I just don’t like it on myself.There is nothing wrong in cosplaying a character that does not have the same body type as you are, however, I do prefer to stay as true to character as possible.
Here’s the thing, I’m a little bit of a perfectionist so if i were to commit to doing something, I’d want it to be as good as it can get.
Without further ado, here are some possible cosplay for the tall girl club. Continue reading →
Hey all! It has been 3 months since my last blog post and it’s great to be back! I pretty much took a break from wordpress after my last post -> Anime openings otakus know too well (shameless self promo). As to why i took a break, there was no reason. I just wanted to. I mean it’s not as if this blog is going anywhere.
This blog post is just gonna be me updating about me life and to hopefully get me back on writing again. (Mini Jotaku)
Before anything else, I want to thank the people who followed me during my absence. I am very surprised that there are still people reading my blog despite me not updating it. Seeing the stats really motivates me to continue this blog.
To start things off, I want to talk about this Otome game which I think almost everyone is familiar with by now. Yes, I have hopped onto the hype train as well.
It is the one and only Mystic Messenger. This is a Otome game created by a Korean company called Cheritz. I’ve seen this game popping up on my app store quite a few time before it was all popular but didn’t thank much about it since most mobile Otome games are pretty shit. However, after seeing some reviews of it I decided that maybe I should give it a shot but for some reason, I couldn’t install the game on my phone only until last week. So yes, I am very late on this hype train but all is good. My phone was able to install it after a recent update to the game. Continue reading →
Anime openings play such a huge part in getting me into the mood to watch the anime. Some anime totally nailed the opening song in setting the mood that fits the anime perfectly. All these opening songs can really get popular real quick and the whole anime community pretty much can sing them as an anthem in a flash.
So in this post I’m going to talk about some anime openings that became part of our anthem. I feel like 90% of the anime community can all recognize these songs pretty easily.
Tachibana Hotaru is a High School girl who is often mistaken as a boy due to her appearance and dressing. With a strong sense of justice, Hotaru seeks to punish evil doers. The story follows Hotaru on her journey in a survival game team called Toy gun gun where no female members are allowed.
IMO: This anime has beautiful art style, pretty interesting story line and all the good shenanigans you want in an anime. My one and only complain which made me quit watching this at episode 10 is how annoying the main character can be. Maybe it’s just me but so far, I have yet to find someone that had the same problem with this anime. The reviews I’ve seen so far about this anime has been pretty good.
– Warning, heavy complaining ahead.-
I have a shit ton of things to complain about Hotaru, but I’ll just point out some major ones just so I don’t bore everyone out.
So here’s a little update about myself. I’ve got my hair bleached blonde a few days ago and OH MY GOD. I feel as if I walked right out from an anime. I feel magical.
Asians like me have black hair and it’s not like I hate it, it’s just that 19 years of black hair can be pretty boring. I NEED SOME EXCITEMENT IN MY LIFE. Sure I did dye my hair a few times in the past but it was nothing drastic. Just browns and maybe red.
It’s been 3 days I believe and I think I’m slowly getting used to it. It’s still kinda fun looking into the mirror in the morning and be like who dafaq is this then go on admiring my hair for the next 20 minutes or so.
I’m already rambling, so imma cut that out and just go straight to what this post is.
Anime girls are always known for their big (boobs) eyes and that oh-so-luscious hair. So today I want to honor all those blondies out there that have their hair so fabulous that you wonder what shampoo they use. Like seriously, my hair feels like grass, it does not move like how it does for them. I am salty.
