Imperials or Stormcloaks?

I know! I should be finishing Mass Effect 3! But somehow my brain decided I should play skyrim tonight instead! Haha brain-plsss! x) But it’s a great game and the heart wants what the heart wants I guess! Haha! But anyway, as I was going trough my quest log looking at the quests that I had not finished yet and I realized something rather embarrassing…. Of all the hundreds of hours I’ve spent in the wounderous land of skyrim I TOTALLY forgot about the “choosing sides” thing! Imperials or stormcloaks? You see I’m new to The Elder Scrolls universe, I never really got into any of the other TES games somehow, so when I started playing Skyrim I had NO back-story whatsoever on either sides… So I was like “HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO KNOW WICH ONE TO CHOOSE???” :O “Oh well, I will play on for a while and choose later when I know more about them…” But the more I found out about both of them it seemed like it was like coosing between plague or cholera! Like “do you want me to kick you in the left nut or the right??” SERIOUSLY! And I don’t even have nuts! x) Ok, let’s break this down:

The Imperials
These guys REALLY don’t know how to make an first impression because right at the start of the game they try to CHOP MY HEAD OFF! And for no reason at all really! “oh, your name is not on the list, well whatever! Off with your head anyways!” Whaaat? These guys are jerks right from the start! And then there is the fact that the imperials are totally corrupted and so whipped by those smug Thalmor! They outlawed the worship of Talos and those imperial wusses just stood ther and took it, letting the thalmor take over! *shakes head* The thalmor now have the imperials wrapped around their fingers and are totally in controll, they even captured Ulfric Stormcloak at one point but realesed him in order to keep the war between the Imperials and Stormcloaks going for their own gain! To weaken skyrim and ultimatley try to take over… douche-bags! xP

The Stormcloaks
Well for starters they seem really racist to be honest, like nobody but the nords should be allowed into skyrim! 😛 This actually gets quite tiresome after a while.. And their leader Ulfric is sooo full of himself! Wow! he is really something, something bad 😛 He only seems intrested in trying to take the throne for himself, by any means possible, he doesn’t care who he hurts. And challengeing skyrims high king to a duel and then using the thu’um to take him down! A really cheap way to win I’d say, not so much moral to be found here… And like I said he seems to be in cahoots with those damn thalmor too!

Well, I think there should be a third option! Join forces with both sides and go hunt those thalmor right out of skyrim! And when they are long gone I become high king of skyrim! The Dovah-king if you will! xD That would be awesome! haha! ^^ I was discussing this with a dear gamer friend and he said maybe you can make a mod and make it happen! (Sounds hard though) xO

Well I’m probably gonna end up trying both sides, but honestly it does not seem to be a case of “the good guys or the bad guys” here! Just two kinds of bad, trying to do good in their own way I guess! Did you play skyrim? What side did you choose?

My Collection Episode 5! :D

Gather around kids! It’s time for another episode of Jenny’s Game Collection! 😀 *Theme music plays* x) Haha! This time I will show you my PC games!

RSM 2014!!!

Omg this weekend was so much fun even though everyting did not exactly go as planned! x) We arrived in Gothenburg really late the day before, so we didn’t get much sleep, we had a cosplay emergency that needed to be taken care of before we could even go to the convention and there was a 2 hour wait in line before we even got in! x( At least we saw some awesome cosplayers while waiting and there was a Mario walking around giving people hugs! ^^ It’s not everyday you get to hug your childhood hero so of course I had to capture this opportunity! xD haha! Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos This guy cosplaying wheatley from portal was great!

Yaaay! ^^ (At least from one end, they will probably never stop releasing them) Haha! Wow! This post got long! Sorry about that! xD Hope you liked it anyway! **Hugs**

And that’s it! 😀 I hope to take some better pictures soon with me actually wearing the cosplay! Stay tuned for that! ^^ *lots of hugs!*

GAMEX 2013!!!

Finally!! THE GAMEX UPDATE! Woooooo! xD GameX this year got a bit hectic to say the least. The cosplay was not done, I had just gotten a slipped disc and lumbago (was eating alooot of painkillers) and worst of all my sweet little kitty cat Gin got sick the day before we were leaving for Stockholm. His sickness was not so serious (yet…. =P ) He had crystals in his urine making it hard for him to… do his buissness! (he had it once before and he got fine right after the treatment) so we took him to the vet. That night I worked so hard to finish my cosplay but it was soo hard while Gin was not feeling so good, I keept one eye on the cosplay and the other on him so I’ve might not have been working as fast as I could have! =P Somewhere at 5 or 6 am I gave up and said “I will bring everything with me and finish it at the hotel”. I was so tired from stress and worry so I just needed a few hours of sleep…

DAY 1

At around noon we packed the car full of cosplay stuff, and a litte luggage 😉 I kissed my kitty-cats good bye and then it was go time! We were off to stockholm and gameX 2013! This was a thursday, the 31st of oktober and we were staying for the whole con, until 3rd november! We were so exited! My friend had also built a cosplay, Zack Fair from Final Fantasy Crisis Core and it was awesome (and finished =P ) so I was a bit stressed out about getting mine done on time and having time to enjoy the con of course! ^^ There was a cosplay contest on friday and we were a little tempted to try our luck there, but first I needed a finished cosplay! x)

We arrived at the hotel and quickly carried our luggage up to our room, then we ran down to finally check out this years gameX. We always stay at an awesome hotel called Victoria Tower sitting riiiight next to where GameX is! So convenient! ^^ At first glanze is was awesome, then we notised how small it was compared to past years, nintendo wasn’t ever there :O And sadly not many cosplayers at all the first day but there was alot of games to try! And swedens first chance to try the PS4! (Woohoo) And there were alot of merchandise! Nerd-heaven! xD

 photo DSCN3876_zpse6a8a4e0.jpg

We also tried to find out more about the cosplay contest and were to sign up but no one seemed to know anything, not even the people in the cosplay booth! (haha) Then finally we found someone who said “just be there before the contest starts at 17.30 and it’s fine” Fair enough! ^^ We didn’t stay the whole first day because someone had a cosplay to finish =P I had to make and put on all the fake leather straps to make all the parts stick to me. Was alot more work than I imagined it would be and I stayed up until 1 or 2 am before I went to sleep..

DAY 2

Cosplay day! Yay! I was still not done but I was sooo close that I could taste it! No way it would not get done, maybe an hour or two then it was gonna be finished! So after some yummy hotel breakfast I continued working. That’s when I get a phonecall from my dad, he had promised to watch over Gin for me, and he had gotten some complications from the treatment and was getting worse and worse. This made things alot harder! I was so worried and could not focus at all! This caused in things taking more time than it should have but after a few hours I was upto that point when I was gluing the last pice of strip on the last armor piece.. and what happens? I burn my fingers on hot glue that just came out of the glue gun! I was gonna put some preassure on the strip while the glue dried and it must have slipped out on the sides of the strip… IT HURT LIKE “#%&! x(

So here I was, so worried about my kitty I just could cry, had just burned two fingers on my left hand, and I still needed to put on my cat nose, do all of my cat makeup, put in the cat eye lenses and help my friend with his Zack hair.. all using one hand =P The burnt hand wanted to kill my fingers unless I kept it under cold water! x( After alot of effort and stress we were finally both done!! Yaay! 😀

My makeup was terrible (somehow the grey color turned blue when it dried! xD ) and everything had been done while in panic mode but I was so happy to be done at last and at around 17.00 we hurried down to the con to go enter the contest. When we arrived we found the place of the contest at maybe 17.10-17.15 only to find out we could not enter! We were too late! 😦 “If you had gotten here like 10 minutes ago you could have entered, sorry!” Omg, I was so sad, so close and all because I messed up and burnt my fingers!!!!!!! x( *sob* Oh well, not much to do about it so we just watched show and all the amazing cosplayers, I never would have won but it would have been fun to at least try! It was too dark to take any pictures in there but I caught some of them on camera afterwards! ^^ (Warning! Alot of Pictures) xD

Look! look! I found another Skyrim cosplayer! 😀 And she picked a figth! :O Or was it me? 😉 Don’t remember! *lol* We ended up having alot of fun even though we missed the contest. Still I was very worried about Gin, I even thought about leaving Stockholm early and go home to him, but when we got back to our hotel room that night my dad called and said Gin had been “hospitalized” at the vet and he would not get to come home until sunday, same day we were gonna get home again. So since me going home would not make any difference, I stayed.

DAY 3

This time there were no stess, and my fingers didn’t hurt as much! xD So today I got to be a gray khajiit, not blue! And with alot better makeup! x) Yay!

DAY 4

The last day of the con, I was not able to wear my cosplay today because we had to leave our hotel room at noon, so if I put it on I had no place to get it all off for the car ride home. But I at least wore the jagged crown! Today there was supposed to be a cosplay catwalk but it was canceled, instead there was a mini photo shoot!

Oh man…

Gaaaaaah! I have some SeRiOuS gaming withdrawal symptoms.. I miss playing videogames sooooo much! x( I just haven’t had the time cuz I went all in with the cosplay… witch has been alot of fun too but holy crap do I miss gaming! The last game I played was mass effect 2, that was like ages ago! Or at least like 2 months. I even dream about games! Last night I dreamt I was a tetris block (what does that even mean?? x) )

At least I have games all around me being played I can glance at.. The boyfriend is playing saints row 4 (witch looks awesome btw!) My sister is playing league of legends (streaming btw!) And my dad is playing Assassins Creed 3 (We still live at my dads due to the water damage at our place) And then we have me, building my cosplay. All of us, in the same room, doing our thing! 🙂

I have now made the shoulder thingys, it was hard and they did not really turn out the way I wanted them to… but frankly, with 4 days to go, I can’t really start being picky!

Good and bad news!

Ok, some stuff have happened.. Do you want the good or the bad news first? Let’s go with the bad! So, about 1 -1 1/2 months ago I started to feel a pain in my back, over time it got worse and worse! 2 days ago it got really bad and I had to go to the hospital! 😦 Turned out I had a herniated disc and lumbago! This kind of threatens my cosplaying a bit… : P

But fear not! Here comes the good news! 😀 The doctor gave me aloooooooot of painkillers! x) So I’m not giving up, I’m still gonna finnish the cosplay and try with all my might to make it happen! I’ll be a half drugged khajiit if I have to! Some more good news is that I’ve started to paint all the armor parts!

6 days to go! I’ll show you some more progress tomorrow!
