Cosplay Hiatus? + Where is my Otaku craze?

Journal Entry: Tue Dec 18, 2012, 9:35 AM

It's obvious you can tell that I'm quite inactive in submitting new sets on dA.

Well, simply because I'm pretty much on a hiatus. It's not that I want to be in one, it's more like time has really eaten up most of my opportunities. And then the money investing in costumes is really getting tricky for me. I have a lot of plans I want to fulfill but I also don't know which one to start on. How many characters will I cosplay in 2013? Will I even have the chance to cosplay? I just hope I still can, but I don't know. Otherwise, my dA will be quiet for quite a while.


Okay I'll just  be really quick on this, but I think I've grown bored with anime. It's weird though, I used to be so hardcore like i was surviving on them. But now, I barely take interest. I've only watched very few recent animes like K project or SAO but I've stopped at one point and then get irritated with the fact that it goes way too mainstreams and it only pushes me to step away from it.

Also I think my huge obsession now over British Telly is the worst. I'm so sorry anime, but they sure pick up a pretty good fight.

Anyways, that's all that's going through my head. Probably discuss about AC3:Forsaken in the next journal.

I have a similar situation: I'm in hiatus, because I already graduated college and I have to work and... I have to live alone.

Priorities are priorities. I believe it's okay to have some break from it and take hiatus. If people will go away and they won't wait for your come back, then so be it, but never feel lonely because there are people who would be there waiting for you to come back. I believe it is also better to take things slowly. Craft isn't that easy to achieve when rushed.

I, too, have a loooong list of cosplay plans and some are like 3-year old or older plans and even if it took long, well, I'm just happy that I still did that cosplan and I can have tears of joy in fulfilling this cosplay, no matter how long it took me.

My interest in anime isn't falling yet, but I do agree that it is getting too mainstream and everyone has to cosplay or to finish an anime that is in the mainstream list. Everything seems fast and rushed. It's tiring and it is kind of disappointing that it has to be that way.

Everything's going to be fine.

I hear you! It's taking me a lot of effort to get interested in it. I might reblog a lot of anime, but I can't be interested enough to go and watch it anymore. c: BUt glad that you have found a new liking anyways! ;3;

whatever happens, your cosplays will always be in my heart ♥ i also feel that way sometimes (bored with anime), well it depends on what anime i watch. in my case, if i wanted to watch again but bored on ongoing anime, i re-watch old school animes which i don't remember mostly

Don't worry I know how you feel. I'm getting picky with my anime since I want more story than just fanservice that's why I love Hyouka, Jormungand and Psycho-Pass.

Unfortunately, instead of watching dramas I went back to watching National Geo. If we had History and Bio then I'd be spending more time there. So far in British telly I've only watched Sherlock and a couple BBC documentaries. Have you tried Merlin?

Yeah, I agree with the picky thing.

oh yeah I just got the seasons so i'll be starting soon :)

I understand honey ;3;

I'm also on cosplay hiatus and probably won't make a cosplay account until idk when only because scumbag school after the holidays giving us a truckload of requirements. That, and I'll be having my internship by April ;3;

And I can empathize on the loss for love in anime ('cept probably Hetalia). All my fandoms are starting to be western *coughMarvelcough* and I have friends who are trying to hook me to becoming a SuperWhoLockian hurrhurr XD

Come back when you feel like it~ I'll be doing the same. ;w; :tighthug: look at how much I will miss you with that clingy emoticon XD

I know how you feel *nods*
I stopped watching anime a few years ago. I don't even watch TV much anymore. I havn't even used one in the last week or so.

Sometimes work just kills it. Or you spent so much time on them that you notice how everything is exactly the same...Havn't seen a good story in a LOOOONG time.

The formula is always : MC is a duche, friends are derp, story is filler, all bad things always turn good...Anything that goes mainstream will get cancled long before they quit writing fillers...

So depressing...-_- The repitition of the industries is why I quit art.

I feel the same way! ; A ; IDK, it's really hard to get into anime now aksjdfksfjkdfd.

Anyway, hope 2013 goes well for you! Don't work yourself too hard ; v ; <33
yinami Featured By Owner Dec 23, 2012  Student Interface Designer
ikrrrr. Maybe I've been too long into it or i just simply can't anything good to watch.
