I now have a backloggery account, which can be found at http://backloggery.com/sagesaria

This is way better than Dreamwidth for keeping track of my games, so updates will be over there from now on.
sagesaria: (Oh no he di-in't!)
I was watching a computer duel on Smash Bros. Melee; Young Link vs. Roy.  It was in Onette, so there were cars going back and forth, as you must always watch for.  By the time Roy killed Link so they were tied at one stock apiece, Roy was high enough on damage that if Link played his cards right, he would win.  However, JUST AS Link was coming back to life, Roy was lingering on the edge of the field, when a car comes from that direction.  BOOM!!! Roy goes FLYING to the OTHER SIDE of the field, where he rings out, and Link wins!

Roy just got PWNED big time.

It was even funnier because I was talking to Katrina on the phone at the time.  "Yeah, I'm watching some NPC's on Smash Brothers fight it out--OMG ROY GOT PWNED!!!"

I wish I could've taped it or something :)
sagesaria: (Submit!)
Yes, I finally did get past Ursula.

In fact, now I'm in Hollow Bastion. *waaaaah! I'm almost to the eeeeeend.....;_;*

And I think it's safe to say that I'm completely lost.
sagesaria: (Flea: Mighty Sorcerer...or Sorceress?)
My gloves came today!!! Yaaaaaay!

Tomorrow I'm going out to Jo Anne Fabrics (again) to get some hooks for the skirt, then I'm going to the mall to get a back-up top, and some batteries and foot pads and maybe some aspirin from CVS.

sagesaria: (My fandom is green and sneaky)
In honor of my new fandom :)

Which, in case someone hasn't noticed, is Beyond Good and Evil.

My fandom fights for freedom.

Jade is Beyond Love

I doubt that anyone else on my F-list would be excited about this colorbar (except maybe Damien and David), but either way, here's the code. Remember to change the signs!

sagesaria: (kissy kissy <3)
My wig dye came today! I no longer have to worry about going to Otakon as a blonde Flea!

Mom and I are gonna go shopping for more costume material today. Can't wait!

Only 3 weeks until Otakon! EEK!

Anyway, hell week at work is over for me; I had the day off yesterday because the company is moving to a new building, so there wasn't anything for me to scan. It was the scanning that was getting really stressful; jam sessions and screwy computers kept slowing me down. And driving me closer and closer to insanity. Top it off with broken AC and whaddya get? A very very frustrated Saria-chan -_-.

But hopefully once we're settled and I go back into work on Monday, the pressure will be off and everything will get back to its regular, dullsville streak.
sagesaria: (My fandom is green and sneaky)
In Beyond Good & Evil fandom (teeny, tiny fandom... ;_;), people praise that Jade isn't like other video game heroines; she is not rediculously busty just so horny teenagers will buy it.

Yet through 75% of the game, she's crouched down and crawling on the floor.

Yeah, they don't need to look at her boobs...they can look at her ass instead!

*LOL*

I'd brought it up with people before, and they were amused. I'm sharing it now because I was just reading my previous post then looking at my wallpaper and going "OMG JADE'S SHOWING OFF HER BELLY! Don't look!" sarcastically.
sagesaria: (Grrr...)
Some asshole wrote an ignorant review of Sims 2, accusing Maxis of bullshit:

http://www.eurogamer.net/article.php?article_id=60190

Of the people on the community I saw this in, 1/3 said "Uh, earth to moron? There's nothing there!!!", 1/3 said "OMG Barbie dolls can be nekkid we should sue Mattel! (/sarcasm)", and 1/3 (the parents, specifically) said "Don't you fucking tell me how to raise my kids, asshole!"

Along with several other comments such as "Play the damn game and see for yourself!"

Once again, I can rest easy, reassured that some level of earth's population still has brains.
sagesaria: (Pocky!)
Hero of the day next two months
[livejournal.com profile] john_tangent: For saving me over $600 by giving me a room that's safer and no doubt comfier than any hotel in the Baltimore area.

Thanks to him, Mom is feeling much better about me going to Otakon, so now I am pre-registered and ready to start working on my costume!

Things to do to get ready for making the costume;

1. Cash my paycheck(s)
2. Order wig and wig dye
3. Take the bus to...
Joanne Fabrics, for...
- a new bobbin
- pink thread?
- patterns for a cape and blouse
The mall, for.....
- shoes
- belt
- gloves
- Genie Lamp?

Guess what scene I just watched. So beautiful....*sniffle* (of course, only FFX players will understand what all that was LOL)

And of course, I didn't save, so I can watch it again *_____*
sagesaria: (Flea: Mighty Sorcerer...or Sorceress?)

the finished hankie the finished hankie

All stitched up and washed in strawberry shampoo to give it a nice sweet scent
skirt material skirt material

comfy, stretchy, and rather cool to the touch when it hasn't been used.
top material top material

this has to be double-layered because it's transparently thin. Hopefully it'll be cool because it's so thin and light. I have a lot of it too, so it's good to make use of.
cape material cape material

this is where it gets really hot. This fabric is a little heavy. But it's the right size to make a cape.
glove material glove material

again, stretchy and comfortable, and the right size in finger-elbow length.
trim trim

nothing really to see here. just the trim for the various pieces of the costume



As for the costume itself, I just got a bigass jam out of the sewing machine, and I need another bobbin to hold pink thread. Also, I may have already screwed up my first glove. Well, worst comes to worst, I suppose I could use the leftover fabric for the skirt, which just needs trim and to be sewn together. And if that doesn't work...I'll go out to the mall and look for some gloves while looking for shoes and a belt.

Think I can do it in 6 weeks?
sagesaria: (Flea: Mighty Sorcerer...or Sorceress?)
So I'm almost ready to start stitching my costume together, but the issue of a wig was left undone. But somebody on [livejournal.com profile] chronotrigger told me about a forum where I can keep updated on news for the Chrono Trigger photo shoot at Otakon. www.cosplay.com. Generally a good site for meeting cosplayers, planning photo shoots, and getting good advice for production of costumes. The site also has some wigs for sale. One problem; I'd still have to dye it. What to do....so I ask the forum if they know where to find dye in the color I need. Somebody showed me a website that sold wig dye. And guess what? They have my color!!!

Must remember to call [livejournal.com profile] nandarou_life, [livejournal.com profile] mathaeus, and [livejournal.com profile] keith_m043 to make plans for a room at the con. Then I must pre-register! Which of course means that Mom and I must go out and cash my check!
sagesaria: (16 Bit Me!)
Well, it's certainly not Chrono Trigger...hell, it's not LOTS of games, but...

Final Fantasy 10 is a very beautiful, entertaining movie game.
sagesaria: (I'm dancing!  I'm dancing!  I'm--oof!)

sagesaria: (I'm an icon Gil! *squeek*)
First week of summer vacation and already my sleep schedule has warped.

Anyway, I'm sorry I got so LJ-backlogged, but here is a list of what has occurred this past week;

Saturday, in which Saria-chan goes to a wonderful party )

Sunday, in which Saria-chan goes to the movies )

Monday, in which Saria-chan spontaneously hangs out with friends )

Tuesday, in which summer vacation starts and Saria-chan has a friend over )

Wednesday, in which Saria-chan goes to a not-so-wonderful party )

Thursday, in which Saria-chan goes to the theatre )

Friday, in which Saria-chan is lazy )

Today, in which stuff happened. )

So now, here we are, finishing a long overdue LJ update. Damien's trying to get us to watch Record of the Loddoss Wars. I might join. I dunno if I feel like trying something new right now :P
sagesaria: (Default)
I saw the doctor again yesterday. They're taking a culture strep test as opposed to the quickie one I got last time, and they gave me a prescription of medicine that they suggested I start taking in case it was.

I'm feeling MUUUUUUUCH better today. Still sore throat and still coughing my lungs up, but it's not screaming agony to swallow. If I feel like this or better tomorrow, I think I can get myself back to school.

I emailed my teachers this afternoon, asking for missing work. Only two of them have replied. Hmmm.....

Estuans interius
Ira vehementi...

SEPHIROTH!
SEPHIROTH!


God I love this song. I need to play Final Fantasy 7. Last time I saw it was when [livejournal.com profile] buff was living with us for a few days and was playing it. All I really remember about it was Cloud in a dress and the awesomeness of Sephiroth.
sagesaria: (Default)
I have been absorbed by the video game monster. Damien brought me his PS1 memory card. Oh, sweet, sweet Chrono Trigger, how do I save thee?

Anyway, recap of the party, in a giant coconutshell.
IT'S A MADHOUSE!!! )
sagesaria: (Whee!)
So I fell asleep on the couch last night, and because of that I was woken up by the phone ringing. It was Mom. She was at Best Buy, looking at PS2 controllers. She found a pretty green one that she was pretty sure I'd love, but there was one thing she wanted to ask about; the directional arrows, which are connected on mine (which means that you can't push the buttons directly across from each other at the same time) are now separate buttons, was that ok? Are you kidding, Mom? That's a feature on my old one that I was *complaining* about!!!

So now I'm getting a new PS2 controller, in my favorite color, with a working X button and a DDR-functional arrow pad!

Dark Cloud....Harvest Moon..... .hack//INFECTION.....Sims....I'm coming back to you, my babies!!! *____*
