Coco is Missing! T_T

Our cat Coco is missing. 

We last saw him Monday, May 27 before we went out to watch a movie. When we came home, we were told that he’s gone & missing. His leash got loose from the hook and he went outside because he likes to rub himself among the bushes. He’s wearing a harness & dragged his leash with him. Whoever, saw him can easily take him because unlike dogs, cats do not bite anyone he doesn’t know. Also, he’s used to people so he’s not really scared to be picked up by anyone. 

Thoughts are running through my mind. I hope whoever found him is just waiting for someone to claim him and would return him as soon as he finds out that someone does own him. I also hope he’s not being maltreated because normally at night he vocalizes a lot and when he’s missing Robert he howls a lot.

We love that cat. He was a gift from Robert 1 1/2 years ago along with Sasha. I raised them myself and they are my babies. My heart is so heavy right now just thinking about him being lost. I hope they feed him. 

I am praying that he gets found & gets returned to us. We posted ads around our area so people can see if they have seen Coco around. 

I am so sad right now. 😦

Cosplay: Infested Kerrigan (Star Craft 2)

Every now & then, I might feature some of my cosplays here in my blog – as long as I get the time to do a nice write-up for them. 🙂 And since it’s the launching of Star Craft 2’s: The Heart of Swarm, I’ll probably begin by posting my Infested Kerrigan costume. 🙂

Image

“Every living thing in the universe will bow before the Queen of Blades, or else they will die. Obedience or oblivion. That is why we fight.” – Kerrigan’s creed

 

We made this costume last year and I first wore it at the 5th Philippine Cosplay Convention held last March 3, 2012 at Robinson’s Manila and won “Best Female” for it. It’s almost a year already but this still remain to be one of my favorite costumes of all times. 🙂

Image

 

This was the first costume where we played with other materials. We used latex for the body sculpt here. The other parts, like the arms, thighs & legs are made of rubber, coated with thin fiberglass.

Image

See those wings? It’s made of PVC pipes with metal bracing at the back. I have a brace made of fiberglass which holds the wing bones via butterfly screws. It stands almost 7 feet tall folded and almost 8 feet when spread apart. 🙂 

Image

 

It’s a little heavy but quite manageable. I think I can stand with it for 3-4 hours straight then I just have to take it off. LOL. The costume is actually 98% done since we didn’t get to finish the shoes when I first used it. 

Image

I did the make-up. Kept it simple but wanted to make it as feminine still despite her being a monster. 🙂

To date,its our most intricate costume ever made and I am proud of it. I thank my team for it  – Benjie & Robert. 

I was also flattered to be praised by Mr. Steve Wang to be one of the best Infested Kerrigan cosplayers he’s seen so far (How awesome was that?). He was the one who originally sculpted the Infested Kerrigan statue for Blizzard Entertainment. 

I’ll probably do another post for the making of this. For now, I hope you enjoy the amazing photos I got from those people who took pictures of me as Kerrigan. 🙂

Image

with fellow cosplayer Erin Joan Yang as the not infested Sarah Kerrigan. LOL.

Do watch out for more of my posts on this. You may also visit our page for photos and updates on our cosplays.

Till then.  meow. ~(=^‥^)ノ

Cats are Liquids.

“Cats are liquids.

Liquids take the shape of the container while maintaining constant volume. That’s it. So cats are liquids.”

Image

I saw this photo in Facebook a couple of days ago and I re-posted it on my timeline wall. I realized that this is very much true and I can prove it. LOL.

Image

^ This is Stewie. My first grandcat. LOL. He’s Sasha & Coco’s first baby. I woke up one morning and saw him sleeping in the food bowl. I just had to take a photo because its sooo cute. =^.^=

Image

Image

That’s why when I saw that meme, I found it funny and true.

And so it’s now a universal science – Cats are liquids. ha ha ha.

meow. ~(=^‥^)ノ

New Gadgets!

WOOOOOOOOO!!! I has new gadgets!

After much contemplation (since Monday only. lol), I decided to go impulse buying through our loan association privilege. I have always wanted to buy a new camera to upgrade my current digicam which I got for free 4 years ago. hehe.

Image

my 4-year old polaroid digicam

I won that camera, a pink 9 MP Polaroid, on a raffle draw during the awarding ceremony of our company’s sportfest event. It was a lucky draw to think that there were thousands of entries. I was not really expecting it and I was very surprised when I heard my name over the megaphone. I even saw my boss stand-up and was trying to find me in the crowd. LOL. I guess God answered my prayers that day because I really wanted to buy a camera for myself – a DSLR actually. He may not have given me exactly what I had wished for but it did serve its purpose for the past 4 years its been with me. And up to now, it’s still in good working condition despite its battered look.

I had been meaning to upgrade my camera into something high-tech. I was eyeing the Nikon D5000 and I told myself I’ll buy one after my other catalogue loans are done. Apparently, I got tempted. Ha ha.

Since summer is nearing and the chance of going out of town to beaches and/or go swimming is high, I thought of getting a waterproof camera. I realized this when I went to Hundred Islands and I kinda felt sad that I didn’t get a lot of pictures during the trip.

And so I bought the Olympus Stylus TG-630 in red (it’s my favorite color ♥).

Image

photo taken with the polaroid =^.^=

“A revolutionary system of waterproof seals and gaskets keeps water out so you can take pictures up to 5m underwater. A durable body with innovative shock-absorbing technology protects it from drops of up to 1.5m. Perfect for skiing, snowboarding, sledding and other winter fun, this camera is winterized to perform at below-freezing temperatures. And it is even dustproof, meaning you can spend worry-free days taking pictures at the beach with it, for instance.”

I was surprised also because it came with a free android tablet as a promo. How awesome is that? =(~.^)=

Image

freebie! android tablet.

So i think I got a great deal – I now have a better camera that is waterproof, meaning, I can bring it to our upcoming swimming parteh, + an adroid tablet I can bring anywhere, much more convenient than bringing my laptop and lastly it’s 1-year to pay, auto salary deduction. hehehe. Thank You S.M.! Thank You SLA!

Image

As for my old digicam, It’s time to award it to someone else. I’ll give it to my brother so they can use it – to at least, be able to take snapshots for memories. =^.^=

Of course, I tested my new cam at the office as soon as I got it. hihi.

Image

haha. hang-over photos from yesterday’s post. 🙂

My New Cat Hoodie

I finally received the hoodie I ordered thru the online shop Gurlyglamshoppe.  I accidentally found out about the page when a friend of mine tagged me in one of the photos there. I was tagged on the red hoodie with cat ears & cat pockets. He knew I love cats and I am somehow is into collecting cat stuff so he thought it was a great idea tagging me. WRONG! It was a bad idea! Because, yeah, it made me spend! LOL! The moment I saw it, well, there was no questions asked. I ordered right away. Hehehe.

It was actually my first time ordering an item online. I am usually apprehensive with transactions like these since there are a lot of “scam” stories out there.  And I’m a very easy buyer meaning, if I have the cash, I’d rather pay in full because I might spend it somewhere else.

After a few messages with the page owner, I went with the transaction paying the 50% deposit via western union.

It took a while before the items were ordered because it ran out of stock and was rescheduled to be ordered for the next batch. I didn’t mind. The seller informed me of the delay.

After I followed up last Monday, she informed me that the item is already with her. I paid the balance yesterday and I received the item today. Fast huh?

Here it is tadaaaa!

Image

Image

Although, I think the color is a little off. You see I ordered the red one as in the photo below but in actual, it’s a little pinkish/fuchsia. But anyway, I still like it.

Image

The material is fleece so its soft to your skin. It’s relatively thick, so this would be best for the upcoming rainy season where it would be cold. I actually like it, since I have very thin skin – I easily get cold. I actually am not fond of aircons much and that may also be the reason why I have an OCD with jackets and coats. They’re a staple wear for me.

Cat ears! Love the hood.  ♥

Image

Cat Patch by the left side.

Image

I might change the handle of the zipper. It’s a little thin and I am thinking it might break easily. I’ll change it with a cat pendant or something I can find. Hehe.

Image

The pockets. =^.^=

Image

I wore it at the office. It works and it kept me warm. myaawwwrrrr…

Image

Image

I’m really happy with the item and thank you Wesley for tagging me in the photo. Ha ha ha. And again thank you to the Gurlyglamshoppe for the excellent service. I’ll see what else I can buy from you. Do check out her page. There’s really cool stuff there. ♥

Till then. meow. ~(=^‥^)ノ
