Saló del Manga de Barcelona 2012

Per fi tenim la crònica del XVIII Saló del Manga d'aquest any. Tot i que la L no ha pogut disfrutar d'aquest event ja va gaudir de la Comic Con de NY.
Dalek Dr Who - Fotografia de Mystique Raven
Només vam anar diumenge per falta de temps però era evident que aquest any el lloc ha sigut molt millor que els altres anys, (s'ha fet al recinte ferial de Montjuïc on hi ha molt més espai que a la Farga de l'Hospitalet) així que el pas per tot arreu era bastant fluid i no feiem entrepans disfressats. jeje. Afortunadament no vam haver de fer cues per entrar ja que vam comprar les entrades per antel.lació, però segons ens han explicat dissabte no deixaven entrar perquè ja no hi cabia més gent.
En aquesta edició la gastronomia japonesa ha tingut un paper especial i hi havia una nova zona de petits restaurants que competien pel millor preu. Tot i que hi havia molt que triar, també hi havia cues per aconseguir un trist ramen. Van participar Ferran Adrià i Hiroyoshu Ishida a algunes conferències.
Un dels artistes més interessants per nosaltres va ser Hiro Mashima, autor de Fairy Tail, manga que seguim molt d'aprop. Un manga d'un grup de mags que us recomanem molt. Doncs a causa d'això vam poder veure molta gent disfressada d'aquest tema. Segons la Mystique Raven hi havia Erzas per tot arreu, jeje, una disfressa que jo tinc pendent de fer-me, si aneu seguint el blog ja la veureu. A més la L anirà de Lucy i la Mystique Raven de Lluvia.

Aquest any la N es va disfressar de Princesa Mononoke, molts de vosaltres heu pogut veure com em feia la disfressa pel Facebook en 4 dies i el resultat.

Un Record Guinness (i que no 'es GISHWHES)

En el 20è aniversari de la publicació del manga de Dragon Ball a Espanya, es va celebrar al saló un rècord Guinness de fans disfressats de pj de Dragon Ball.

I perquè ho sapigueu la pròxima edició del Saló del Manga de Barcelona es celebrará entre el 31 de octubre y el 2 de novembre del 2013. Us hi esperem, cosplayades com sempre!

Ok, so here we are this year again with GISHWHES and this time the list is this one and we have five days to complete it!!!


Lucky Seven: Things to remember that can help find your way to ghost hunting in Scotland!

  1. 1. Safety. There's a way to scavenge all of these items safely AND legally.
  2. 2. Commandments. Read the Commandments. Yes, again. And maybe one more time. Also, we may add or remove items and change the rules on you mid-hunt. So it is your responsibility to check the "Updates" page daily.
  3. 3. Submission Quality. Submit the best quality photos and videos. This year, our judges have been authorized to assign up to 50% more points for superior submissions. That means if you execute a 50-point item with exceptional care and thought, you could walk away with 75 points. So think about focus, lighting, background props, etc. If the picture is riveting, the judges will likely be riveted, and, well, you do the math.
  4. 4. Interpretation. Submit exactly what is asked for, not your reinterpretation of it. If we ask for a camel in the picture we don't want a drawing of a camel, or an inflatable camel. We want a real, hairy, spitting humped beast.
  5. 5. Creative Scavenging. Be creative on how you get props and materials for your items. Last year's participants proved you don't have to buy stuff. They used friends, neighbors, donations and communities. They were also surprised how complete strangers thoroughly enjoyed helping them complete items. Throw "Item Parties" and have people bring what you need. You can win cheaply simply by being clever, borrowing or begging.
  6. 6. Courage. Be courageous. You don't need money or talent to win this. All of these items can be completed simply by having the courage to ask someone. Between the 15 of you, someone somewhere has what you need or can help you get it.
  7. 7. Do it. Have fun, make friends, push your boundaries and mud wrestle with your creative side.
There are a number of items below that have the word "Hurricane" in front of them. Although they can be completed by anyone, they are designed to be completed by people who might be home-bound with no electricity for the next few days because of Hurricane Sandy on the East Coast in the US. Please note, if the power outages are prolonged, we may extend the deadline for these items (and perhaps all others) past the end of the hunt. Remember, if you're on the East Coast and your authorities have told you to stay inside, FOLLOW THEIR DIRECTIONS! Do NOT go outside. Be safe and good luck!

ALL of the Items below should either be captured as "images" (which are photographs) or "videos". When you click "Submit", there will be instructions on how to submit the links to these images or videos. You should only use IMGUR, VIMEO and YOUTUBE. IMPORTANT - Unless otherwise specified, ALL VIDEOS must be 30 seconds or less!

  1. We are going to attempt to shatter the Guinness World Record for the "Most Pledges to Commit a Random Act of Kindness." The current record is 74,379 pledges held by Guinness Breweries. Let's take the throne! Your team must collect "pledges" from individuals pledging to do a Random Act. Click this link and follow instructions; don't click the submit button here. (You get 1 point for every 2 pledges - up to 350 points maximum. It's only 47 per team member, but we expect you to exceed this because this isn't all about points. Is it?)

New York comic con

OK, after a couple of weeks after NYCC, I think it's time we made a small review.

L had the chance to go to NYCC, thanks to our friend Pepe Caldelas. This year it was held as usual at the Jarvis convention center, during four days, and we had acces in on all of them. The ocupation of the exhibits was all the levels and areas, so the whole of the center was a huge fan site full of constant amusement.

If you have been following our facebook you provably have seen the pictures and the different things that have been going on. The first day was more for professionals and special badges, so it wasn't that packed, but the rest was a full river of people walking through the tight alleys and trying to look over the overpacket booths.
Artist Alley on Friday
This year there where not that many interactive sutff to do, and, as understandable, most of them demanded some sign up and different things. The whole convention was divided in four big areas:
- The main floor, where all the main booths where.
- The artist alley.
- The block: where you could find all the different alternative stuff, and a great are with arcades.
- The theaters with the panels.

Everywhere there where interesting things and fun going on, and if you didn't have enought you could watch all the cosplayeres. If we talk about the cosplayers one must point out a couple of things. The best day on my opinion to see good cosplayers was Sunday, but there was the huge Homestuck gathering on Friday and the Doctor Who on Saturday.


Doctor who

The whole convention was loads of fun and it's a thing I really recomend to everybody.

If you want to see the full amount of pictures, I sugest you visit our facebook page and check all the albums

T shirts is one of the things you could find more at the con!

Iron Fist

There was this contest in summer done by the clothing brand Iron Fist, where you were supposed to take a picture in Pin up style and wearing something from the brand.
So after this, L, M and N decided to take part and here is the result.

This is the published picture

Sadly, only L got her picture published, but none of us gained the prise. Actually I think they got overwhelmed about the great amount of pictures the received and didn't know how to handle it.

Future cosplay and Facebook function

So, we have M, the honorific member, that always wants us to do a cosplay directory, where we should put all the different ideas for future cosplays, so now that we have facebook we will star to do that in an album. We would like this to be complementary, so things from facebook will be shown that are not here and the opposite. But worry not! we will announce here and there what we have published, so you don't miss anything!

Here is a little list of things we would like to do:


Morigan from Darkstalkers.
Gabrielle from Xena.
Lucy from Fary tail. 

Green lantern


Hsien-ko (lei-lei) from Darkstalkers
Princess mononoke.
Poison Ivy.
Elsa Scarlet from Fary tail.
Yoko from Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann


Ponies human version! (this is L's idea)
Fary Tail with M as Lluvia or a stelar beeing!

We would appreciate your kindly opinion about if we should do this or that and suggestions! And sure that we can come up with more!!!

The world is saved

How many times have we saved the world together? or by ourselves? Or online? In black and white or in colour? How many times have you seen that overly pixeled character and started feeling the emotions from expectation? How many of you love just to pick up a controller and do what you can do best?
This is what this song is about, the epicness of videogames!
Thanks to a friend Rapther I discovered this, and just loved it. There is the English and Spanish version, and they are both as epic! 

English version Composed by Danny Wiessner

youtube video channels

I think it would be fun to just make a small list of the youtube channels that we follow. Basically is those people that make cool or fun videos!

Alert, the order is not a preference, just how it comes out!

We have Smoosh, hilarious videos an parodies, but the best in L's understanding is the Legend of Zelda rap.

We also have the Team Unicorn, yeah this girls are amazing, we actually envy them!! And the best is the one we met them with, G33K & G4M3R girls!

Than we have geek and sundry, where you can see the new episodes of the guild. It's like a tv channel and they have weekly airing.

One of L's favourites is Adamslapdog, and his hilarious zelda abridged series.

We must make a special mention to Vihart, its a girl who does great doodling explaining maths theories! it's just awesome!!

Here come our girly thing, Michelle Phan is a girl who does amazing things with make up! and easy!

Then we have LogeandZane, who do various parodies and fun videos, one of the best to our opinion is the I'm yours.

If we talk about music we cant forget Lindsey Stomp, she dose this great videos and plays the amazing songs with her fiddle. It's hard to chose one, but maybe one of the latest, of Skyrim.

As a curiosity, we have man from greace, who has all this animated series, and our favourite is the Doctor Who.

One of the latest findings is this barelypolitical, the do fun parodies, maybe the best is their new video abou game of thrones!

For the last, but not the least, you could take a look at break originals, they have fun things but the crow jewel for us is the tonight I'm fraking you!!!

PS: We talk about other channels, but don't forget we have our own!!!

Yeah, we know, sometimes we have a strange taste!

Highway in Lloret de Mar


 Hi kiddos! 
L went with some friends to this hard rock bar in this town called Lloret de Mar by the sea and she found out you could hang hang things on the wall, so she just began the greatest spam ever!

She wrote her freak shows various times and just hope that we get more followers or views!!!

She really is a spamer this one, there is almost no bathroom toilet in her university free from her writing!

Hope you enjoy my craziness!
