Yesterday even though I felt like crap in the morning, EB Games called to say my pre-order of Nightfall had arrived, so I got ready to catch the 12:00pm bus to Greenwood.
They were 10mins late, but luckily June drove me over so I go to sit in the warm truck till it arrived. It was 5oC and very windy. So after we arrived in Greenwood, I transferred to Kentville.I really enjoyed going though Kentville, since the annual Pumpkin People event is taking place. I wish I could have had a video camera and filmed the various pumpkin people.
We went though Alysford, which it happened that that day a benefit for a young man was taking place. I watched about it on CBC news that morning. He was paralyzed from the waist down, due to his 4-wheeler flipping on top of him after he attempted to make a 12-foot jump.
Then after that we came into Kentville.
I saw; a blue horse complete with rider-a short fat, mustached man, wearing a skirt-a green unicorn-a full marching band-a purple
Once we arrived at the old train station (the bus office now) The Bus, like it seems everytime I've taken it was late arriving. Luckily not as late as it was last time >_< 1:30mins late last time. It comes, and it's back though Kentville again, and then on to New Minas.
The driver of said bus to New Minas, did not stop when we got into the Walmart parking lot. So I pulled the 'Request Stop'. He still didn't stop untill we were like 100feet away from the parking lot entrance. I had to walk all the way back, and cross busy roads. I'm glad he wasn't the same guy who drove the return bus.
I was planning on going to WalMart first because I didn't want to walk in the cold, to EBGames for a little while. But I ended up going to EBGames first and picking-up "Guild Wars; Nightfall". I'm going to buy "Kingdom Hearts" my next trip if they still have it. $14CAD plus tax ^_^ Anyway then I went to "Pet's Unlimited" to buy Minnow a new harness. I looked at the kittens, and fish while I was there :)
Then Walmart :D I looked around the electronics department, and seriously thought about buying "Flash Gordan" (♪Flash! *Ahaaa* Savoir of the Universe!♪). It was a 2 for $10 DVD, but I couldn't find another DVD I wanted that was part of the bargain ones. I want "Gargoyals" set ;-; and S"tar Trek", and "CSI: Miami", and "The Equalizer" ^_^
Then I went to look at the Halloween costumes. I wanted to try and find a cheap white wig (spikey or not I didn't care). I had settled on this light brown bargain wig ($7.95 -_-). Then I went to look for white hair spray stuff (I had orange one year,a nd have seen white and silver before). Then I saw this little hanging rack of packaged wigs. There was fros, black rocker ones...and then I saw it. "Punk Wig" it was white and spikey, and short. Also it was only $5.75 So I bought it and was all bubbley.
I personally think I look like;
1. the love-child of L and Near
2. That dog -woman from that Fairy-godmother movie with Martin Short
There were these guys looking at the costumes aswell. One pulled out this child's Darth Vader outfit.
"I wonder if I could sqeeze into this?"
"It's Darth Vader, come on!"
I decided now that I had a wig I was going to go try to ether find a stripped long sleeve t-shirt, or a new pair of navy/white track pants (the ones my mom ordered from Sears were too small, and the large size costs more). And I found a navy pair with a big white stripe down each leg. ^_^ $9.95 on sale.
So for my "complete" (I'm not concerned about finding/editing shoes) Killua outfit (made over the last like 6 months) I've spent;
$8.73 -- Light purple t-shirt
$11.14 -- Navy/white pants
$6.84 -- white wig
$4.37 -- maroonish tank-top
Total -- $31.08CAD o_o; (and I'm planning on speanding $6.33 relitivly soon on two wooden yo-yos from LeaValley and painting them to look like the Greed Island ones)
So on Tuesday I shall be joining my 'friends' Ichigo from "Bleach", possibly Keitaro from "Love Hina", and some odd character Neville has yet to tell me who.
Yes we are geeks/dorks. Though we shan't be the only 'cosplayers' at school. There is a girl that has dressed up as Sasuke from "Naruto" for the past 2-3 years.
I was asked by Cullen why I don't dress-up as girl characters. The truth is there are few girl characters I like. I like Sara from "Gallery Fake", Aka from "REC", Neon, and Pakunoda from "HxH" and Shia from "Pita-Ten". I would love to dress as Shia, but it looks rather expensive/hard. I might try for Aka though :D
Oh and if I can get to the V&S (Variaty Store) I think I might buy some cheap ($1yard) fabric and make a Mike costume for Minnow XD I always dress her up anyway so why not make a HxH themed. I have a no-sew pattern for a simple coat/vest, some felt and some stick-on Velcro.
So yeah that's it. Now just to go to the V&S tommorrow and Home Hardware (need some AA batteries).
EDIT-- I didn't realize how ill I look in those pics >_> Though I was/am sick at that time/now.
