Vote for me!

I entered a Guild Wars 2 screenshot contest. The winner gets the Guild Wars 2 SteelSeries set, including a gaming mouse, headphones, and some mousepads. The top 20 of the viewers votes will have a chance at winning them. They will then narrow it down to six, so there will be six winners. Please help me get into that top six!


Please vote for me here! 
 
 
Since a lot of people have a lot of friends on Facebook, they get a lot of votes. I only friend people I know in real life on my Facebook page for security reasons, so I don't even have a hundred friends on Facebook, especially since a lot of my friends refuse to use Facebook. This means that I need your help to get me to the top! I worked very hard on picking out locations and getting just the right picture for my submission.  So please help!
 
 As for now, I'll just post up some other screenshots I took that I considered! I particularly loved the Grove. The contrasts of everything made me ooh and aah all weekend long! <3

AWA 2012 Plans


    Anime Weekend Atlanta plans are as follows!

DJ Iroha - Beatmania IIDX
Tsumiki - Acchi Kocchi
Rin - Touhou Project 
 
 
 I've actually worn and made DJ Iroha to my very first AWA. This AWA, I will be bringing the costume back after I remake it. There's a lot of work to be done, but I started earlier this year.

I will also be hosting a Touhou Trivia panel. It will be a game show-esque panel with several prizes for anyone to win. So if you like Touhou and want free stuff, study up and attend the panel! It'll be fun and friendly.

I'm very excited to attend AWA this year. I'm hoping my brother will come to AWA as well. I'm making him a costume to wear for it. I also can't wait to see my friends again. I'll finally be able to hug a friend I never have been able to since he will also be flying down to attend!

Redesign

   In an attempt to make this blog flow with the rest of my blogs, I'm redesigning the entire blog. You can see the changes for yourself! I've now added page buttons to the right of the blog for an easy way around the pages of my blog as well as links to my other blogs! I'll describe those later on in the post!
   I've also created a new background for the site. I thought something simple, easy, and cute was fitting.  I've changed up the header just a bit, but I kept the original and beautiful art from Lindsay (maroonwar.deviantart.com).  I've also added some new pages! Hopefully, I'll be able to keep up with this blog now, but the redesign isn't finished. I'm still working on post headers as well as fixing the posts themselves to work with the new width of the blog. A few more touches here and there and it should be complete!
    What do you guys think so far?

As for the other blogs I've linked on the side, I will now say a bit about them!



Penny Candy is my new food blog. I've sat on the idea for a while, and I post a lot of food up on The Perfect Doodle. Food is one of my passions. In Penny Candy, I will be reviewing restaurants as well as giving recipes and talking about snacks and candies. I hope to travel the world one day, and as I go place to place, I would love to post about the food I've tried. This even includes local food. It's small right now because it's new, but it will steadily grow!



Project Tyria is a Guild Wars fan blog that I own. For those of you who visit me for the Guild Wars 2 information or screenshots, this is where most of my time goes. Project Tyria takes comparison shots of Tyria in Guild Wars and Guild Wars 2 as well as pre and post searing pictures. I take a lot of my in game time going around taking pictures of places you may know from Guild Wars game and find the same area in Guild Wars 2. The site has been talked about quite a bit by many Guild Wars fans and other Guild Wars sites, including the Arenanet Guild Wars 2 team themselves!


Aside from all of this, I will be making another post later today or tomorrow detailing my plans for Anime Weekend Atlanta. So until then! Bye-bye!
