please vote for me in this contest!

Apr. 17th, 2012 | 08:33 pm

Hey livejournalers, long time no see! I hope you've been well, it's been so long ;_; i mostly haunt tumblr and twitter these days if you've been wondering where i went.

Anyways, I wanted to ask you all of a favor... if you have facebook, could you please vote for my dress? I designed a 60s inspired frock for a contest, and i made it to the top 25! Top 3 voted entries will get MADE into dresses and sold on modcloth.com. Winners also get sent a sample of the garment they designed as well as a cash prize! Super exciting!

You can head on over here to vote! :)

Actually, I got two dresses into the finals, but for the sake of making the most of our votes, I ask that you vote for the lilac shirtdress with the heart pocket. :) Thank you so much, my dears! You can vote 1x per 24 hours, so please be sure to vote again all this week! I will probably make more posts this week just as a reminder. :)

PS. Tell me what you've been up to lately! I have no idea :[ I miss you all!

PPS. Did I mention I moved to Mississippi?? Lol!

raid my closet over @ my tumblr shop!

Jun. 6th, 2011 | 11:49 pm

Hey, omgosh, I haven't updated LJ in so long :( I feel baaaaaadddddd :(((((((( Tumblr has made me way too ADD to want to sit down and actually WRITE anymore (heaven forbid).

Anyways, popping back in to say that I'm doing a MASSIVE clean out of room! AKA!! Please give my clothes a happy new home in YOUR closet! I got myself hugely into debt because I wasn't able to sublease my Davis apartment for the summer (like $500+ debt AHHHH), so hopefully this can help me out a little. :) Instead of posting all my images and descriptions directly here, I'm trying something new! I opened up a little shop on tumblr. It's easy to browse this way, I think! You can use the tags to look based on size or clothing type. And this is way easier for me to update :D

Currently, there's more than 80 items up; I have a few more things that are being posted RIGHT NOW, but basically everything is up and ready for perusal! But seriously, 80 pieces wtf?? I knew I had a lot of clothes, but I didn't know I had that many! Well, here's to hoping that number drastically drops soon! Go go, go check it out!


Some of the savings are ginormo, like 80%+ retail price yayy!! :D Price ranges are all over the place, from $10-$200; there's fancy stuff, casual stuff, inner wear, outer wear, WHATEVER WEAR! The sizes are also ALL OVER THE PLACE since some of these clothes were back when I used to weigh a wee more. Even now, I still buy clothes that are too big for me AND I DON'T KNOW WHY. A lot of this stuff has never been worn, many are new with tags!!!

AND!! And!! if you tumblr reblog my promotional post (http://xinester.tumblr.com/post/6188721144/shop-my-closet) on your tumblr, you'll get $5 back on any order above $40! :) Yayyyyy!

Aiite, now that I've gotten that out of the way! Watch it for updates! :D Yay!! Happy shopping!!!!!!! :) You can email me at chupako AT gmail.com or just leave a comment here if you have a question or are ready to order! Thank you <3333333333

doujinshi paper

Mar. 17th, 2011 | 11:56 am

Completely unrelated to my previous post, but I gots stuff to do for school, I guess.

Anyway, I'm revising a paper about doujinshi that I wrote for my advanced composition class, and I'm just about done except for a few things I want more info on. Point: I was wondering if anyone out there could help me as an authority on how doujinshi is printed in Japan? I just want to write an additional small paragraph about what the doujinshi printing economy is like in Japan and maybe also a little bit of copybon culture.

Thanks in advance!

Oh god, I shouldn't have been goofing off this weekend, I am so fuckeddddddd thisss weeekkk AUGHHH, feel free to just ignore this god awful ness, i don't think anyone could understand it but me. sob.

death scheduleCollapse )


Also, I'm trying to raise funds for my trips & rent, so I'm selling some clothes again. I have a few things up at http://shopxinester.tumblr.com/ , but more things are coming soon.
I have a lot of miscellaneous thoughts about the events in Japan, but the main point is that I am concerned with the people there and would also like to make donations. Regarding the tumblr shop I just posted, I am also donating 15% of those sales to Red Cross. I also am opening Tegaki commissions; anything like this for $5! 100% nonprofit.

fuck I cried, this is so sweet. Four month old baby is rescued!

Chúc mừng năm mới !

Feb. 4th, 2011 | 08:26 pm

I'm a day late, but HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! :) :) :)

full viewCollapse )

Year of the cat, babyyyyy. I used to be jealous of all the other kids in my class because most people my age are the year of the dragon (SUPPOSEDLY, year of the dragon is the luckiest); but now I like to think of the year as especially lucky since it's twoooo super adorable animals.

I hope you are all having a nice, happy weekend! :) :) :) :) :) My family and I watched fireworks at a few Vietnamese plazas, and tomorrow we are going to the big Tet festival in San Jose. I am so happy to be aliiveeeeeee, I feel very fortunate. LOVEEEEEEE YOU FOREVER!!

(Also, thanks for all the nice comments lately! Hee! :D )
