Q:Hi Jin! Since it's clear that Miguel is not your boyfriend, do you have a boyfriend? What qualities do you look for a guy? :)
Clear? Is it really? Hahahahahahahahaha
rockets knows wats up
Q:I really love your blog and I love you. All of your cosplays are so fantastic. Yours is the only cosplay blog I follow because yours is the only one I like enough to follow. And so pretty much I was wondering if you would please be my friend?
Hello, anon! I’m really happy to hear that you enjoy my posts! However, on the subject of becoming friends, I’m afraid I am at a disadvantage as I don’t know anything about you.
(I get questions like this a lot and I have been meaning to address it. So this is not just for this particular anon but everyone who have asked similar questions.)
As much as I would like to think it would be so easy to become friends with someone just by asking, I’ve come to learn that it’s not that simple. Perhaps it is particularly true for someone like me, since I share photos and some stories about myself and my friends. People tend to build expectations, and get the feeling that they know me so well — when in reality they don’t know much at all. There’s more to who I am than what I choose to share online, after all.
On a bit of a darker note, I have had my trust betrayed in the past by people who claimed to have wanted to be friends. I hope this helps you understand why I am being kinda guarded.
That does not mean I am shutting out the possibility. I have been honest with you, and that is something friends would do, isn’t it? If you decide on trying again not anonymously, please don’t ask directly if we can be friends, as I believe that friendship is not something that is built on one simple question.
Maybe try interacting with me first. Perhaps you could leave comments on my public page posts in which we could discuss something we might have in common. I don’t know. Maybe you have other ideas.
It might be worth noting that I’m not fond of private messages in which people try to engage me in small talk like, “What’s up?”
THE SKY IS UP I’m uncomfortable with one-on-ones with someone I’m not familiar with, I’m not good at small talk, and there are so many things that are “up” that I would exhaust myself figuring out where to begin. Hahah. I don’t intend to hurt anyone’s feelings; I am just being real here.
I guess it’s kind of like in real life: Casually exchanging comments in a public place is no problem. But when someone unfamiliar sends a private message for unclear reasons, I feel like I’ve been cornered in an alley. (If they have a question or a definite message to express then that’s fine.)
If you do decide to try leaving me comments, just be sincere and be true to who you are. I can’t promise anything, but that sounds like a pretty good place to start. :)
Q:Hi Jin! Long time no see any updates due to my exams at uni ;___; I know I will probably get a punch or something for the question I will ask but I feel completely lost with this. What is "Welcome to Night Vale"? ._____. I don't know where I have to look to understand something about it. Could you please help me? u.u Thanks so much :D Have a great week!! <3
Google is your friend. <3
Night Vale can’t be explained. You’ll just have to experience it and either leave while you still can, or live there like the rest of us.
I’m thrilled to have been chosen to be part of the team as Kenshin for events promoting the upcoming Rurouni Kenshin sequels! Our first event was at the Philippine ToyCon last weekend. I was there with the team on Saturday, along with a representative from Warner Bros. Japan.
We were part of the opening ribbon-cutting ceremony, a promotional panel for the upcoming RK movies, and we were at the Rurouni Kenshin movie booth for pictures and interviews. The booth featured the movie costumes for Kenshin, Aoshi, and Sanosuke that were flown in from Japan. It was amazing seeing them up close! I would probably have been happy to stare at them all day but we ended up very busy taking pictures and talking to people and press who dropped by the booth. I barely had time to take a few photos for myself, but I am happy that it means there continues to be so much enthusiasm and love for Rurouni Kenshin!
One of the highlights for me was the fact that Keishi Otomo, the director of the Rurouni Kenshin movies, had seen and shared pictures of our cosplay through his Twitter account!
The second Rurouni Kenshin film will be shown here in the Philippines on August 20, and the third installment on September 24! The first movie was fantastic so I am extremely excited for these sequels!
Long before the movies, the manga and anime for Rurouni Kenshin had such a big impact on me, so this series continues to have a very special place in my heart. It’s such an honor to have that love recognized and to have the opportunity to keep sharing it with others!
"I quit swimming"
Photos based on the scene from Ep. 10 and the screencap references. From our Free! Ep. 10 cosplay shoot.
(Barely two weeks to Eternal Summer! Are you ready? My emoceans are not.)
In honor of it being canon that Cecil snapchats as of Ep. 49A, I thought I’d share some
Cecilfies snapshots I took on my phone during the day of our shoot.
Our other WtNV photos so far are here: [✖]
If you have listened to Ep. 49A, our photo set dedicated to it is over here. (Spoilers if you haven’t heard it!)
"It's thanks to you that stayed by my side"
Naruto Shippuden Ep. 364
The anime has finally caught up on this scene! I watched it thinking it would be less painful since I had already read the manga, but I was wrong. These photos were from our shoot last year, for which we used the manga as a reference. I thought it would be interesting to put them side-by-side with the anime screencaps.
Just another day at Night Vale Community Radio
Celebrating two years of WtNV! I wanted to do a photo tribute to Cecil, showing scenes from a regular work day for the voice of Night Vale. It didn’t dawn on me right away just how much of this time Cecil spends alone. My interns were absent, so this set is just of me and I’m a little embarrassed about it, hahah. I apologize for this oversight.
I offer this link to my tag for our other WtNV photos so far, featuring more characters: [✖]
