Mind Sieve 8/25/14


I missed last week as Animefest was four days and so things have once more slid to the pit. (Connectivity issues didn't help either.) But that's last week! This week, it's all back on! Booyah!

Fan Fun

Houdini - History channel 2 day event. Looks great!

Virtual Tourist - TERA 8/24/14

Life has once more been conspiring against me. Hubby had to do a cutover Friday so no movie. Saw two yesterday, but no time to do the reviews~! Wheee!



I keep finding areas I've not taken pics of in the big city. Heh heh

Love this town!

Val Aureum

Some of the weird flora here. 

Ruins all over the place.

Colorful and super weird fauna.

Giant super scary fauna! Can only get so close to take pics though.

Here's one of all three. Heh heh.

Crazy rock formations and plants

View as we leave the zone.


So green!

This place was super cool.

You can never go wrong with roses!

Amazing beach, no?

You can climb up into the tree stations!

That is one nasty looking fish.

Have a ton of fun today!

Greetings, all!

This past weekend was Animefest! A couple of weeks earlier than normal, but they still went for a four day convention. Lots of amazing costumes abounded all over.

A couple of panoramic views from our corner of the Dealers Room. 

Tried to put a little more of us into this one. Heh

That is one large umbrella. 


Great place to watch from, but if I blinked I missed stuff. Doh!

Threatened by a horse head on a stick. Heh heh.

Too cute!

She'd bought her corset from our neighbor but hours before. She did amazing things with it! Looked fabulous!

Sailor Moon and three Tuxedo Kamens! Woot!

Isn't she adorable?

Teddy too. Hee!

My pic does not do his outfit justice. He has led lights, tubes, and more.

Even Death must wait for the elevator like the rest of us. 

Great Dragonball Z Costume. Even has his tail.

Such nice costumes!

The Foot Clan! See how their evil ninja skills blurred my pic? Heh heh

Could never get a good angle on this one. He had eyes on the wings. Looked super cool.

The Tick's sidekicks for the win!

See, I tried again. lol.

A gaggle of Deadpools. He was super popular. Still have no idea why some of them had on bikinis.

Doesn't he look ominous?!

She was so cute! Paws, ears, and a tail! 

And a friend to hug as well. 

Heroines a plenty

Look at that giant weapon. Impressive.

Ruby Rod and Lilu Multipass! Woot!

Look at the super detail in this costume. Wow!

Demons in leather and chain - Oh my!

Have fun!

The goddess tells me things are not as they seem

Urges me to be careful

Hm, last shot going back to the Cliffs? We've forgotten something somewhere. Heh

Val Aureum

Some great views as we fly in


Really neat little place

Loved their water maker

Looking down into the mine area not far from Chebika

Some strange and cool stuff here.

Neat, no?

And some definitely creepy areas. 

Very creepy

Teleporter Door deep in the mines

Closer look at the teleporter

Mystery man

Horns all over the place!
