1. Q: There was recently Animecon in Netherlands, why didn't go there?
A: Unfortunately my budget would not let me, also I have bad habit of mixing languages when I'm nervous so when I intend to say "Nice weather isn't it?" I might accidentally say "Nice sää eikö olekkin?" (This is English mixed with Finnish, my native language)
Sää = Weather
Eikö = is the third person negative from no , conjugated:
en, et, ei, emme, ette, eivät, which means: no
the suffix kö at the end of the first word of any sentence, in this case Ei +kö makes it a question
Olekkin = from the verb olla = third person of to be = ole conjugated: olen, olet, ole, olemme, olette, ovat maning: he/she/it is
plus the emphatic suffix kin, which usually means: also, too, and is attached at the end of the word to emphasize, in this context it means something like truly, really, or no?, expecting an afirmative reply.
A: Simple: I eat balanced meals, half of my plate goes to the salad and vegetables, fourth goes to potatoes/rice/couscous and last fourth goes to sauce and meat/tofu/soya not to mention that I eat lot of fruits and avoid alcohol in my daily life.
A: Well, anything if you eat or drink it too much is unhealthy, but I get what you are trying to say. CocaCola and other highly sugared drinks we drink when we're celebrating something or want to reward ourselves, sweets we buy once in a week but the maxium we use for one person is 2€, wines and alcohol are for special occasions, like Easter.
A: I choose them based on if I like them, if my body type could be used to create the character and if I have anything in common with the character. If I cannot choose between characters, I do a quizz on the anime/manga/game I am interested in and make the cosplay based on the result. If I am going to make several characters, I try to look that the version matches on certain season. For an examble, Hibari was made so I could cosplay him around the year, Dino will be used in winter and spring, Fon is for spring and summer, Reborn will be around the year character and Saito is for summer and fall. The seasons tend to change quite radically in Finland so I want to be able to match the season.
