Hey guys, so, I just don't need all of these (I had a box) so if anyone wants them? I opened the box/bags to see which each one was, but other than that they are brand new. $5 shipping, I can combine. I don't want to ship internationally, sorry, it's just too much trouble for a small item right now. PAYPAL ONLY.

All of these $3 each:
Nibbler (2) ONHOLD
Mom (2)

Sal $15 (he's going for about $30-$50 on ebay because he's a rare chaser)

SIDENOTE: I'll probably be putting up some ABJD doll items, some kimono items, some lolita items and a few other things, soon. HOUSE CLEANING TIME!

I'll be attending and doing a panel at Mission Viejo 2010 Readers' Festival September 25! My panel will be at 3pm. If you can, come out! As usual, if you have one of my books, I'm more than happy to sign it for you and do a little sketch in it, and I welcome questions about Japan Ai, costuming or animation.

And just a reminder, I'll have 4 pieces in Sweet Streets 2. I'll be attending the opening party on Sept 11th. (6%dokidoki and lots of other awesome folks will be there as well.)

Make sure you watch Futurama tomorrow night! (Thurs) it's my second and last episode for this year! (There will be two more episodes I Assistant Directed next year.) I can't wait for you guys to see it. WATCH.

The first episode that I Assistant Directed on Futurama will air this THURS! WATCH IT!

Attack of the Killer App
Thursday 10pm / 9c

"Fry posts an embarrassing video of Leela online."

If you go to the Comedy Central Futurama site they have a preview from my episode (the one coming this Thurs) "e-waste delivery" video up (it's the first video right now on the upper left corner). Ironically, my computer at work doesn't have flash 10.1 to view it. HAHA.

I hope you guys like it. I'm really proud of what we did on it.

Mitch is one of the two finalists for ACP's Kamina contest! Thanks you guys! So Mitch'll definitely be wearing his Kamina on Saturday at Anime Expo and going to the movie. :)
Huge thanks again to Oscar for taking such cool photos of Mitch's Kamina. :D

I need to decide which day I'll wear my Fujimoto (assuming I'm able to finish him. At least my fabric came in this morning!). Anyone wearing any Ponyo costumes any particular day? Is Sunday still a slow day at AX? (or should I try to go on Friday?) I think Mitch would kinda like me to wear Leeron with him on Saturday, so, just trying to figure stuff out. (but I could just wear Leeron later in the day)

Thanks all of you for watching last night! Hope you liked the first two episodes!

Last night I went to the Futurama premiere on the FOX lot. It was fun to see the first two episodes on the big screen in the Zanuck theater and watch it with all my coworkers, the writers, the voice actors, etc. A nice start to the airing season!

Next week (THURS, same bat time, same bat channel) is my first episode, ATTACK OF THE KILLER AP! YOU BETTER WATCH.

Are you guys excited about the Doctor Who finale this weekend on BBCUK? I am!

I'm also, of course, REALLY EXCITED about the ONE HOUR FUTURAMA premiere tomorrow night! 10 pm PST, 9 pm C. On Comedy Central! I can't wait for people to see. Here's one of my favorite sneak-peaks they've shown from the CC blog recently,... Civil War Bender. HURHURHUR.

Yesterday I went to Lowe's and confused the employees again. :) If all goes well, I'll have a working water-mister for Fujimoto! WOOT. And it looks like I probably WILL get my fabric in time. (Amazing!) We'll see, if I get this done, it'll be a minor miracle. :)
Mitch is preparing for AX by working out while watching Gurren Lagann. Irritatingly, I re-aggravated my knee pretty bad this week, which is putting a damper on my own work out schedule.
Wow, this post is really geeky, but hey, they mostly all are, aren't they.
Ah well, see you at AX in a week!

There's a crew-only Futurama premiere on the 24th at the FOX lot. That's cool. Mitch and I will go. I'm looking forward to everyone finally getting to see the new episodes!

I'm actually really looking forward to it. I won't be doing any selling or panels this year, I'm just going to hang out and cosplay. I did a rough muslin of my Fujimoto (Ponyo) suit pattern last night by rubbing off a pattern from a suit-jacket I have that fits like I want. Little iffy on the finishing bits of it (esp the collar), but I think I can figure it out by looking at my existing similar garments.
Mitch is excited about wearing his Kamina costume again, and if I'm feeling brave I'll probably wear Leeron. (Leeron's scary purple jumpsuit requires a certain amount of hutzpah to wear.) Regardless, just looking forward to the con.

- I really wanted a slightly candy-color for Fujimoto's wig, but I'm having a horrible time finding one. The color is rare... all places that have the color are either japanese or chinese (which has language barrier or shopping service problems).... and so many stores say " you can have this wig in any color" but then you ask them about 4 different colors and they can't get them in any of them. :\ What I really want though is this wig from Airily, that's the color I want. But it's sold out. :( :( :( :(

Just a reminder that I will not be doing any panels or selling at SDCC this year. My last Futurama deadline is right before the con, and I just need to take it easy this year. I will be GOING to SDCC, but mostly only on the weekend.

I probably haven't mentioned it on here but I'm going to be doing Bioshock with my girls for SDCC masquerade this year. You can see some of their insane progress work on HCC's journal. I'm mostly just there for moral support, handling and feeding them, but I will have an outfit. It just won't be an outfit with robot parts or mutations. Instead, I'll be wearing this 40's dress! It's actually my first real vintage pattern, I'm looking forward to messing around with it. And I'm sure I'll end up wearing the dress as a non-cosplay every-day dress, too. I like this style. I'll try to do a really nice clean job on it.

Figured out I was actually UNDERwatering my lavender and camellia. I've been getting so much conflicting advice about how much to water that I was getting really frustrated. But one of the ladies at the nursery said that I should be doing a deep water (of about an hour or more) about once a week or once every two weeks. I did a deep water last night of the camellia and problem lavenders in particular, and already this morning the camellia's leaves look perkier, so it definitely was an underwater issue. I think I was watering too frequently, too shallowly. So I'm going to have to figure out the irrigation systems more and set up a once a week deep water, and have the other days just water the lawn only. I think it can do that. Overall I'm starting to get the hang of watching the plants for signs of what's wrong with them. So hopefully I'll get it all figured out eventually. I've only killed a few rogue plants. All the agapanthus, morea, roses(!) and trees are doing great and there's this one variety of penstemon that just does fabulous for me as well as one variety of lavender (grosso) that seems to be really happy, too.

Broke down and preordered Milky Planet skirt in yellow through a shopping service. It's so Candy Land! I figure the skirt will be the safest bet for me considering how ridiculously short this line appears to be. I'll figure out some way to modify it though to make it work if it's short, because this print is THAT AWESOME. I'll have to figure out some cute way to make a bodice to go with it. I loved the scallop on the JSK... so maybe I'll do something kind of like that (but with a white cloud scallop...?)

Hey everyone, we're in JUNE now, do you know what that means?

The NEW season of FUTURAMA airs June 24th at 10pm(9pm Central) on Comedy Central!

And even better, they're showing the first two episodes back-to-back that night. Both of which are rad episodes which have jokes that make me snicker to myself. :)

WATCH and get all your friends to watch, man!

The first Futurama episode that I Assistant Directed (with Stephen Sandoval as Director), 603, will airing be the following Thurs, July 1st! My other episodes are 610, 616 and 623. I am SUPER PROUD of the work that we all did on all the episodes (not just these). They look GORGEOUS and they're really funny. It's rare that I feel that proud of a tv show I've worked on. I can't wait for you guys to see them.

Comedy Central has been showing sneak peaks of the final full color show... but also some of the preproduction storyboards and character models, so keep watching their blog for more! I think it's pretty awesome that they're showing storyboards, it's rare that this type of stuff is shown.

This shot below is from my first episode, 603,... and it's actually from a section that I storyboarded. :)

And here's a couple more teasers from Stephen and my show, too:

David X Cohen on Physics and Futurama <--- really interesting!

Also fun, is that he references one of the unaired episodes I assistant directed (tentatively named) "The Prisoner of Benda". Thanks to Oscar for the headsup!

REMINDER/NOTES: Got interviewed by LA WEEKLY regarding my artshow this SUNDAY! And again, for more info on the artshow, see this post or facebook RSVP.

I'm going home, I'm too sick to concentrate on even the most menial story-boarding task, and that's, well... sad. haha... oh well. Fresh start on Monday.

Mitch, Crisso, Derek and I were invited to go to the Annie Awards last night to help represent Futurama and Rough Draft. It was fun! We went to the pre and after party and I saw some people I hadn't seen for years... and some of the guys I went to school with got nominated, which was pretty surreal! I guess we're adults now, huh?

The campus was really lovely. (UCLA's Royce Hall)

(as you can see I caved and got that H&M dress)

The event was hosted by William Shatner (YAAAAAAY!) and lots of the announcers were pretty fabulous, too,... like June Foray, John DiMaggio and Seth Green.

Futurama won "Best Animated Home Entertainment Production"!
They really didn't need us... but it was nice that David X. Cohen asked us to go up with him and Matt Groening! (We decided not to go up.) I liked the nod they gave to the artists, too (even then, done in a funny way.) So many productions just don't really give a crap about the artists, but the Futurama guys do.

Also, Eric Goldberg won "Best Character Animation in a Feature Production" for Louis on Princess and the Frog and did a shout out for hand-drawn animation. ( you can see the rest of the nominees and winners here )

me, Mitch, Crisso and Derek

I know I'm a total dork, and I'm supposed to be all professional and STUFF (snort), but...
Mitch and I are (in costume as Rose and the Doctor) in the Doctor Who Comic-Con Special on the new 2009 Doctor Who Specials DVDs. YAAAAAAAAY!! Apparently we're at 9min 30sec. I wanna see, but the sets don't come out in the US till Feb 2!

Here's a screencap from fairyfloss_love! (THANKUUU)

... awww... I'm just so happy about this. I'm wearing Rose's Doomsday outfit with my sweet husband cosplaying with me and it's at one of my favorite SDCC's ever... and it's the time that Tennant, Julie and RTD came! And we're on the DVD that's the Tenth Doctor's finale.

ALSO, we're coming up on the 100th EPISODE OF FUTURAMA! The studio gave us commemoration tshirts yesterday. :)

Also, there are movers downstairs putting together my grandmothers dining room set.
Also it that mythical wet stuff fell from the sky last night.

getting warmed up on the cintiq again! Random Leela

So I guess since several places online have announced it, it's ok for me to tell you guys! Futurama is coming back! I'll be going back to work on it in a bit! :)

---- completely unrelated, but my internet at home is completely screwed. I can't get online at all. (I'm borrowing a friend's computer to type this) I won't have internet until next Thurs at the earliest. So please call me or email Mitch if you need me (since he can check his email at work). SORRY!
aimeekitty: (Default)
please see previous post for Japan Ai pics!

So, the first "new" Futurama will be coming out soon! Next week I'm going to the premeire party. I thought the invitation was pretty cute:

Also, did a pic for Kevin Hanna today of his Clockwork Girl character (from his new comic!)
