try writing on a banana skin with a biro- that's what it feels like to write on converse! it's such a weird feeling.
oh gosh i know. i mean, i'm all for clothes as a way to express yourself, but you know its probably gone a bit too far when other people can see parts of you only a doctor should.
haha well i'll try my best. so far most of my leave has been spent playing videogames and watching bad anime. i probably sound so boring ahh. but yeah! no more exams until my a-levels! i think my gcse ones went alright. i mean, based on my mock grades, target grades and expected grades i got a provisional place at my local college, so i think i'm set. still, have to wait for august to make sure! no, what are they doing to them? i know they're switching from modular to linear, but not much else.
ah, when i say i'm a total newbie at lolita, i really do mean it. my dresses are all offbrand (from hell bunny- there's a really great shop in the oasis market in birmingham that sells loads of steampunk/gothic/loliable clothes) so i've never ordered overseas. i have researched it quite a bit, and apparently bodyline is pretty good at overseas shipping, and if you don't order like a ton of stuff, you probably won't get charged customs. aside from that there's not really much i can say. i'm planning to put in a bodyline order myself though, when i have some money saved up. as for not being able to get your hands on stuff, try looking in thrift stores and charity shops! vintage stores too! you can always "lolify" things. plus, it's usually really cheap so you can alter and add things to what you buy. whenever i'm out shopping i always look for things that are loliable or usable in a co-ordinate. it might not be "real" lolita but it's a good start!
i like sweet loli, but on others. bright colours tend to wash me out, so i do prefer the more muted and classical types of dresses. there are a few on bodyline i've had my eye on for a while. country lolita and sailor lolita i like too. other styles i like are probably mori and dolly kei.
uggggggg i hate playing the waiting game. i'm a really impatient person.
wow i wrote a lot. i'm sorry!
I sewed most of my Lolita jsks. I had to take a sewing class, but it was worth it! Other than that, bodyline is awesome. All my lolita blouses and skirts are bodyline. When I ordered bodyline I was worried about the risk of buying overseas, so I just got a skirt and blouse. It worked out alright.
Exactly my thoughts. Even an undershirt would be acceptable! Or maybe they’re trying to push the whole bishounen boy thing. Everyone loves an adorable, cynical emo kid, or something like that…
xD I tried to make everyone look cool; it gave me joy to spend hours deciding what colors looked good together. I guess I should’ve done it your way.
Omigosh, I saw the first impression doodles on your LJ and I cracked up xD I love Syrenne and Calista’s the best, methinks. And, to be honest, I’ve never heard of Marvin, but he seems like Yurick’s soulmate (BTW, did you know Yurick has a pet Muruk?)
Ha ha, yeeaah. Do all the sidequests while you can; there are a few points of no return. Oh, and Lowell’s revenge thing from your LJ is screwed up. Oh well – didn’t care much for him, ‘specially later in the game. I couldn’t understand why Dagran loved the Count so much – the guy LOOKS evil, and practically laughs evilly in every scene. Unfortunately, it will not. But if it makes you feel any better, I think you’re close to the part in which you control Lowell…
Ever since they raised the prices everywhere, I don’t really go, either. This weekend was a documentary I’ve had my eye on, though, and I got to meet the producer (bought a copy, too :p ) Glob, I’m so excited ^-^ Getting it on Tuesday, but I have tons of homework so I probably won’t play much TT-TT
Also, Yurick’s eye was a bit gross, right? I didn’t really imagining him doing it with a spoon, buuuut whatever your imagination comes up with!
One last thing! When you finish the game, you should check out the tv tropes for the game. Lots of spoilers, so wait till you finish. It’s got some pretty funny things on there, most of which you’ve said :p
I’m sowwy ;_; I was hoping it would be good, and never have I been so wrong. To be optimistic, the actual basis for Zael’s power was kinda neat itself. For some reason, it reminded me of Tale of Symphonia…
xD Lol, yeeeaah. He’s got a babyface, but is such a horrible person sometimes. He really does get better; Way late in the game, he lays some personal stuff on Zael and calls him his friend and junk and I was all, “Aww…” Yes! He would! (BTW, his canon clothing is the upside-down vest, if you’ve seen that yet. Kinda… ew)
Yeah, I dunno how to get Syrenne or Lowell’s, but the other two punch you in the face.
I’ll hafta check on it, then. I’m glad I finally have someone with which to tear this game up with :p Nah, not yet. I keep forgetting to put that on my list of “Stuff to buy when I have cash.” I also keep spending money on Steam games and movie tickets… So that doesn't help >.<
Oh, you poor thing. I wish I could tell you otherwise, Cassaela… But no. The story is UTTERLY predictable, and not even that great.
Like I said before, the only reason I really played is because the gameplay was fun, and I just really liked Mirania and Yurick (who, yes, is an utter d*ck at the beginning. He gets a backstory chapter though, and it’s kinda sad, but he cheers up after that. Especially in the haunted mansion…) Syrenne is alright at the beginning, but something really depressing happens later and she just makes jokes the whole time -_- That killed her for me… Lowell was good, too, but I didn’t do his backstory so I dunno much about him. Oh, and get used to being team leader. Though, near the end of the game, you get to play as everyone, so there’s that. You also get a strangely familiar battle with “Ganondorf” (Seriously, the color scheme of the battle is just like in LoZ.)
I really wanted to do a review, and I still might (thinking about making a blog just to review games. I’ve played so many lately…), but yeah. I had fairly high expectations for this game only to be disappointed. Hopefully Pandora’s Tower will be better…
Sorry for the mountain of text; mayhaps I’ll comment on your LJ next time o¬o
Ahaha, no prob. That’s great school was closed for a day, even though you had to work. But doesn’t that make it a bit easier to catch up? Still, I hope you put some of it off, though, so you could chill! All work and no play makes for a sucky birthday!
