Habits of a Horder

Welcome to Alcyone! I hope you enjoy your stay~


I think I have done quite well with avoiding stores and such! That is... at least if we leave out the stops at some game stores, haha. Nevertheless, some things have appeared around my chaotic corners. Things that haven't been here before.. maybe.

Quite a while back I places an order and received a package from Killstar.

There might have been two dresses, of which this is the other one. The other other one would be a safety copy of a dress I already have... what can I say, the print was too pretty u__u'.

And just maybe I already had a pair of these too, but might be that in some party I broke them while dancing, haha! *coughcough*

This one is a bit older picture, as it still shows The Shining, which I read somewhere around Halloween. Nevertheless! Never say no to pretty notebooks and round sunglasses!

A vinyl. Yup. I'm hanging it on my wall. When I get around finding some proper frames...

Guess what is not fun? Taking pictures of black dresses during Finland's winter. Especially during late evenings, which is the only time I seem to have for taking pictures of black items. Two max length chiffon dresses, secondhand as usual. 

A small leatherious suitcase and an old afi cd. Seconhand again.

Some TV series DVDs have been piling up. Got them through exchange of other DVDs. Yays.

A darling [Miss K] also supports my hordering habits by remembering me while on her trip to USA. Cool Skellington jacket, an Oscar (how many has got an Oscar during their lifetime, huh!), Alice book and some omnoms. Haha, she shouldn't have :,). Just those travel pictures she is spamming on her blog would have been enough!

My favorite antiquarian bookstore is also keeping my bookshelves overflowing. Currently reading Jeff Somers' Trickster, shown on the left.


As for other things... I'm in middle of a DVD movie marathon, wishing to be able to clear my shelves of random movies, only keeping the best ones. I have completely lost the count of how many movies I have watched during this mission, but I have already carried two bags full of watched DVDs to a secondhand-DVD-exchange-store-place-thing.

As for all the rest of the hours, I'm overworking, as usual. But as a positive thing, I find my trainee period at this local theater very interesting. That + cosplays for next summer + some requests from friends + own projects + school works are landing me with quite an amount of sewing! Maybe I should make a proper timetable...

torstai 1. tammikuuta 2015


Everyone been having good Christmas and New Years and things? I got lost somewhere during November and never made it to December. Or so it feels. I knew I'd be spending a bit too much time at the work during the holidays for anyone's good health (least mine!), but I also decided to set few things that I had to do. Just because it wouldn't be a real holiday without doing them. 

One of the things I was supposed to do before the year changes to 2015 was to write about Tracon, from which the pic at the beginning of this post is from. This goal I seem to have failed, but the others I didn't, haha! 
(To summarize that weekend: it was awesome with so many different panels and things that we had hard time to find time for eating, I spend too much money for video games and was thrilled to have Giko and J-pon to jump around with me wearing epic coords and "animu" wigs ^^.)

Things I did do as I had planned to was to play a video game through. What I played was this DS game 9 hours 9 persons 9 doors. Very interesting game including puzzles, murders, explosions, conspiracy and so on. The ending left some questions, but that's alright in this case. 
Another one was to read a book, so I read through a history book by Hammond Innes, The Conquistadors. The title tells you what that was about and  I must say I found it really interesting and I just loved the amount of maps and pictures included.

Third one was to hide under blankets and watch the telly. My sister came over and we watched the season three of The Walking Dead, and I must admit she has got me hooked on the series. Can't wait to watch some more. I also watched some randomities and one of my favorite movies, Cloud Atlas, which still makes me cry even if I managed to avoid doing so openly this time since I had company, haha. 

Not originally on the list, but I'm happy to include: watched through an anime series with my sister. Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun was a hilarious anime, and if there is a second season out somewhere, I sure want to watch that one too! Now that there is only three days to go, I wish to be able to spend my time on writing, reading books and comics and sewing. Sigh! If I only had one week more...!

I can only imagine the insane amount of blog reading I have ahead of me, since I haven't logged in for.. a month?! Haha! Must reserve some three hours just for that...

Have some air band playing stuff from Tracon, just because I didn't make an actual post of the convention, haha!
