Please pardon a double posting, but this one has nothing to do with the first so I really wanted to divide them.

Does anyone have suggestions or ideas on how to craft Asuka's "ears"? The little redish trangles she wears all the time like hair clips that are actually part of her EVA uniform. I'd really like to fashion a pair for myself to wear to a Spring anime con.

Thanks in advance for any help people can give me!

Though it's probably more costly, I'd just stick with the COSPA version being sold in Japan.

J-list has them in stock right now. They're worth taking a look at, at least.

Taa daa!


I started looking down that list, and the further I got, the more certain I was this was damaging my sanity bar. Asuka witch figurine? Girl dressed up as Rei porn? Asuka doing clean-up duty in the classroom diorama? An eva-themed pachinko game for the DS? Gothic Lolita Rei? "Puchi-Eva", some sort of DS game that features "competing with the other characters for a slice of cake that Misato has prepared." DOES ANYONE REMEMBER MISATO'S COOKING? The only way I'd compete for that cake is the right to eat something else. >.<

Still, those hair-clips be mighty temptin'.
IF IT'S MISATO'S, I HOPE THE CAKE IS A LIE.

I couldn't help it.

Yeah, I should have put up a warning like "SCROLL DOWN AT YOUR OWN RISK!" Sorry you had to see the cheap/horrifying cash-ins. I do like the Rei figure that's all bandaged up.
That Evangelion DS game is the most bastardized version of Eva ever created.

I'm pretty sure it's worse than all the Eva henti put together.

Aww, but how cute would it be to see chibi Asuka lose her mind to chibi Arael?

And the MP Evas could all be skipping through fields of flowers, smiling at each other along the way.

*pause* *retrospect*

Dear God, that's horrifying.

oooh... drama! If even Messiah says the guy's a douche, that's saying something! whee that sounded so bitchy, but I meant it in a non bitchy way... damn

They sell A-10 connectors, hmmm.... I am considering doing a Rei outfit for Halloween... these may be useful! 3nodding and who wouldn't want the NERV flip-flops, a must-have for the true Eva fan...

lmao... Chibi Evangelion... they should just re-make the whole series in Chibis... omg... that would be amazing O_O

That is indeed quite a page you linked for us Nitro. I have to second Sybrid's quip on sanity.

On the other hand, even if I don't buy them via this site, the image is a great close up shot for reference in making my own. Thanks for that if nothing else. Assuming I do get these things made on my own, I'll post pictures for all of you.

I guess to be fair,this is what a good number of the 90's generation turned into.... ANNO SAW EMO COMING. HOSHIT.

But Shinji did have a bit more to make him act maniacally depressed than boo-hoo-I'm-white-middle-class-and-my-parents-won't-let-me-go-to-the-Stab-My-Heart-Out-concert.... emo I can see Anno meaning that he sees those in the 90s being more isolated from each other due to whatever reasoning you'd like to speculate on, since that was a large part of Shinji's unhappiness and a theme in the series. But, physical manifestation of the whatever Mr. Fail at English Wordy Pants was trying to say? Eeeh...


....anyway, I have much more important things to do than grace you all with my presence. Why do I even come here. Pft. Jackass.

They gave her one so she wouldnt have Belly Button Envy Complex.

Somehow it's taken me several days for this response:

I'm doing great, thanks.

I'm not sure I'd call Shinji emo... unlike most emo kids, Shinji at least actually has a pretty good grievance. If the average emo kid's mother died when they were a child, their father went, "******** this whole 'raise kids' s**t," and tossed said kid out to relatives to be raised, with the end result being the kid being raised by their teacher... Okay, then this theoretical emo kid has an excuse to be moping around. Especially if then their father calls them up to make a giant robot fight giant monsters.

Yeah, srsly. Most emo kids these days b***h and moan about nothing more important than "my parents won't get me an xBox 360. I hate them."

Shinji had something slightly bigger than an xBox and slightly more sinister for him to worry about.

And he was trying to get away from it, and just find general, genuine happiness in life, not material goods or a reason to hack and slice at his wrists.

Your stereotypical "emo" is acting as part of a social group, whether he/she will admit it or not, and is choosing to effect their attitude. Shinji gets his emo qualities by truly experiencing tough, emotionally scarring events in life. Huge difference well seen by Shinji's desire to escape his 'emo'ness vs the stereotypical 'emo' relishing the idea that they are somehow outside the mainstream of teenage life.
How does everyone know Emo and Emo Kids? I never experience this, tell me more.

I agree with what everyone is saying about Shinji-sir - Gooooo Everybody!

I feel this is a factor. heart


I agree that Shinji has good reason to act the way he does. Serious parent/family issues are some of the most traumatizing things that can happen to a person.


Spoons- O: awesome. I've never been able to get that far in Katamari even tho it's a fantastic game.
