I'm just some idiot who enjoys Homestuck and hangs around at east coast conventions with my camcorder.


Goodbye, Net Neutrality; Hello, Net Discrimination



Tim Wu on a new rule that violates Obama’s promise of net neutrality: http://nyr.kr/1jU2AQ2

“It threatens to make the Internet just like everything else in American society: unequal in a way that deeply threatens our long-term prosperity.”

Good job FCC. You fucked up again.

Meanwhile the CRTC here in Canada will do the same shit.

cosplaying on a budget

vicious cosplay 


Personal reminder.

Aaaaand for some reason my last video went private when I’ve trimmed the beginning of it. Here’s a repost.

Anonymous asked
id like to watch the photoshoot video, but it says it is private?

I’ve trimmed the video’s beginning by a bit, and for some reason Youtube made it private. It’s public again now, sorry about the issue.

This is the Otakon 2013 Homestuck photoshoot on Sunday. I procrastinated on posting this one in a while. I’ll likely be at Otakon again this year, I’ll probably record like last year if I don’t run into any issues.


A question that I get asked all the time is, “But Mango, what if I’m too ________ to cosplay?” Fill in the blank however you want. “What if I’m too fat? What if I’m too black? Too old? Too tall? Too plain?”

At long last, here’s your answer… Find out in this video if you’re lucky enough to be allowed to cosplay!

Reblogging for I don’t knoooow. (Fu immah cosplay girl characters all day)

And I started looking at my footage

From prior cons.

And tears started rolling on my face from my eyes, and now I’m just bawling like a baby. I’m so sad yet so happy at the same time.

The last few months have been absolutely horrible for me, I’ve managed to  hit rock bottom during that time, I’ve even tried attempting on my life back in December, I really wanted to make it to Katsucon but I was stuck because of the snowstorms, and I’ve hurt so many people around me by being so cynical and depressed, there are so many things I regret saying/doing, and I’ve started realizing in the last week how shitty I’ve been, I’ve been crying myself to sleep every night and tormenting myself, I’m so sorry, but there are things you can’t backpedal on and you just have to live with.

That’s why I haven’t uploaded any of the stuff I have. I’m getting on it sooninsh, I promise. And I’m hoping to make it for Otakon.

I miss yall so much, I never realized up to now how much conventions mean to me :’(

I was looking on my camcorder, and I noticed I had a few photos left in the memory. Look what I found, isn’t she just adorable? She was giving out candy in her little basket to other cosplayers at Nekocon, so sweet!

Anyone knows who this is so I can tag her properly?
