Halloween Party 2015 and Sting

2015-10-31 20.22.53

Saturday Evening was the traditional Halloween Party.

 

Last year I went to the party dressed as the Shockmaster and this year I went dressed as the wrestler, Sting. It’s funny.

 

I was originally going to go to the party at 3 O’clock but it took me an hour to apply my make-up. At first I was dubious as to whether I was going to pull this off as I didn’t have the correct tools or enough face paint. However, with help from my Mum, I managed to apply the face paint successfully. It was far from neat but considering this was our first go, I am very proud.

 

Everyone, from families and friends alike, were very impressed with my Sting costume. I had the coat, the T-shirt and gloves to go with. I even managed to wrap the baseball bat in gaffer tape and applied hair spray to my hair… it was very uncomfortable. Haha.

 

Unfortunately, being Sting did have some drawbacks… I scared the young people that were at my Brother’s Halloween party.

 

The party was fun. I set the time to leave at half 6 but I did enjoy it and decided to stay an extra hour or two. We played board games and I did manage to chat to a few people. Usually if I stay in a crowd a long time I tend to get dizzy and nauseous. I managed to hold out for quite some time but I did get nauseous around 8 o’clock. It was the right time to go.

 

Things don’t always happen as we anticipate them to be. That’s the one thing I’ve told myself throughout the years.

 

I genuinely believe that this Sting outfit is undoubtedly my best ever outfit. I was really happy that I managed to pull off a good Sting and I intend to dress up as him in the future. Now that I know how to apply his make-up I have prior practice. Who knows, perhaps I will dress up at him if/when I go to Kitacon 2016. I won’t even bother to think about that for now though as it will give me an unnecessary head mush.

 

You can see my picture right at the top of this topic. That is me dressed as Sting. If you like to check out the rest of me posing as Sting, you can view this gallery in this Halloween Party 2015. I titled the album as “Halloween Party 2015” but really, it’s just me posing. Haha.

 

I hope Halloween was fun for you too.^^/

My Christmas Tradition

Father Christmas

Ho, Ho, Ho.^^/

I have plenty of traditions at this time of year. I watch Christmas films, watch Thomas special episodes, listen to Christmas music and watch football on Boxing Day. My two most important traditions are hanging out with peeps and wrapping presents. You see, I get a thrill wrapping presents on Christmas Eve evening.

However, I’ve come down with a bad cold for the past few weeks. So, I wrapped them early so I could attend my sister’s Christmas Eve gathering. It was a good night and I made sure to work the room and talk to everyone. =) I don’t like feeling sorry for myself so I tend to not tell anyone if I have a cold or when I’m poorly. Someone did point out that my nose was really red. That was no brainer though; it was obvious that I was auditioning to be Rudolph the Rednose Reindeer. 😉 Haha.

I woke up really late this morning and we, as a family, opened up our presents quite late. We would all sit in a circle, Dad would pass out the presents, and we would open them one at a time. However, with Santa sacks, we just divulge in them right before we open up the presents from friends and family. Of course, I know Father Christmas doesn’t really bring our presents but me and my Mum still get Santa sacks. It’s all part of the fun, so why not? 🙂

I got a lot of nice presents from Father Christmas and from my family too. From the top of my head, I got…

  • High School DxD Volume 3
  • Monster Musume Volume 5
  • D-Frag Volume 2
  • Marvel Socks
  • Superman and Marvel loungers
  • Marvel T-Shirt
  • Is This a Zombie DVD
  • Lion onesie
  • Captain America: Winter Soldier Blu-Ray
  • Thomas: Tale of the Brave
  • Thomas the Tank Engine Annual 2015
  • Winnie the Pooh the complete collection
  • A very well knitted beard. Haha. =D
  • Non Non Biyori outro music
  • New set of dark striped pyjamas

So far it’s been really positive. Before I set off for my sister’s gathering I saw, what I personally believe was a shooting star. I know I might be unwell and not thinking straight but my eyes never deceive me. =) Well, it was either a shooting star or a comet. However, I’m choosing to believe that it was a shooting star. My face was spread in an exasperated gawp…after 20 seconds I made several wishes at once. I wished for Christmas and New Year to be good for everyone, to over-think less and to be a successful author in 2015. =) If it wasn’t a shooting star then my next guess would have been Father Christmas. Haha.

So far, it’s working, as everyone I know is having a very pleasant Christmas. I keep on falling asleep today as I’m not well but chilling out is the best way for a speedy recovery. =)

I’m planning to go out on several shopping trips and ordering some stuff as well. Through browsing on Amazon I discovered that Seven Seas, my current favourite publishers, have actually acquired licensed for Non Non Biyori manga! I’m extremely excited about this. For the past year I’ve always said to myself that if anyone was going to license Non Non Biyori, it was going to be Seven Seas. It’s not released until 30th June 2015. Aside from my birthday, it’s another reason to look forward to 6 months from now. =)

For those interested, here is the link for confirmation.

THANKS FOR READING

After the Christmas meal, and breaking the wish bone, I’ll probably spend the rest of the evening watching the Christmas trilogy of Only Fools and Horses and Captain America with my family. Then, I anticipate an early night. Even if I am unwell, I can still think happy thoughts. =D

For the fun of it, here is a picture of me dressing up in my Lion onesie and wearing that fake beard. Haha.
