Japanese Cosplay Culture

( ・ω・)/ Hello!

This is a quick translation of a paper I just wrote for Japanese class. I really didn't have time to rewrite it in English, and since it was only supposed to be 2 pages and I'm not super great at writing Japanese, it may seem a little broad and/or weird-sounding. But I hope you enjoy it anyway!

What is cosplay? For…

Sailor Moon fun!

So hey, I went on Japanator today, and they posted this really cool website that lets you design Sailor Scouts. Naturally I played on it for hours, because it's the weekend and I can, muahaha. ;D These are some of the Sailors I made. I hope some of you try it out too, it's really cool! http://www.dolldivine.com/sailor.html…

Writing Sample #2, my reflections on 'Inuyasha'

I wanted to write something else to show a more personal side of my writing. So of course I turned to my favorite thing ever: Inuyasha, and my experience as a fan. Don't ask why there are so many hyphens in this, it just happened that way. xD…

Writing Sample #1, Academic Essay on the Genji

This sample is an excerpt from a paper I wrote for "Introduction to Translation Studies" class, in which I compared Edward Seidensticker and Royall Tyler's translations of The Tale of Genji. I couldn't do the comparison justice in abridged form, so this version focuses on Seidensticker's translation exclusively. If anyone is interested, here's the original paper and bibliography:… Continue

I'm done with finals on May 12th! So I think we finish around the same time? I'm excited for summerrr~ if I don't get this internship, though, I'll have to take summer classes until mid-June, haha. But after that I just wanna play games and watch animeeee XD

Aww, thank you! YAY PRACTICE!! :D

I am totally okay with you bringing your cosplays + bow, if you let me bring more clothes hahah. Your cosplays are awesome! I especially like your Sango :)

Hahaha, well you can tell them you're currently working on a tomato cosplay... ;D I feel the same way you do. Gotta make a good impression! Good luck!!! :D

Eeee. Owie.

Yeah, same here. It always feels like everything I planned on saying before the interview goes halfway out the window.

...Crap, I really have to see this movie now. Maybe I'll just go and have a movie day this weekend or something. Spend way too much, buy lots of popcorn, never leave the theatre the whole day...

Oh, no, those that you don't notice until later are the worst! Here you go along, thinking you weren't burnt, and then suddenly you smile or frown and your face starts to burn. But yeah, that was one of the most annoying times of my life, especially since I had a plane ride the next day. I couldn't even sit down properly.

*crosses fingers and toes for both of us* Same here, as well as trying to appear more articulate. My first one didn't feel as good as I could have been. I'm kinda wondering what else they need to ask, though...?

Your sunburn, from your status post thing, sounds awful :-(. I hope it goes away quickly. I'm lucky, my sunburns don't usually effect me too much, except for that one time where I laid on my stomach on the Jersey shore for an hour without sunblock, and ended up burning all down the back of my legs.

Eeek, that is a dilemma. Maybe you'll be able to go near the end of the time? They seem to be asking everyone to talk around the same time, so maybe it'll just be a short little Q&A session? I hope they can work around that, I want you (and me :-D) to get picked too!
