loot for the day.

Published July 31, 2012 by princeshinkei

I usually work two shifts on Sundays as a waitress versus one night shift from Monday to Saturday.  I didn’t plan on doing much sewing so I decided to go buy some materials for other cosplays in between my shifts.  Turns out I no longer have to work the night shifts on Sundays leaving me the rest of the day free.  I had already planned on going out so I just decided to go to the mall.

I stopped by the bubble tea stand at the mall to say hello to a friend that works there.  We had a small chat about our lives and cosplay.  Found out her motivation to cosplay wasn’t with her this summer so she’s taking a small break from it, but I hope she finds that motivation again.  She’s a really great cosplayer and seamstress.

I took about an hour deciding what I wanted to drink.  It started getting busy, so I left her to her work.  I called up another friend to hang out, but she didn’t have a ride here, so I ended up going to her house to pick her up.

To my surprise, she gave me a cute Meiko figure for taking the trouble to go pick her up.


By the time we got back to the mall, we only had about one and a half hour before it closed. We went to look for some things I needed but I didn’t find anything. For the remainder, we went into F21 and tried on random clothing. I didn’t intend on buying anything knowing there was nothing I wanted to buy, but we passed by the sales section…lol

Ended up buying two cute sweaters and since it was buy one get one free, she and I split the cost of one item and I let her have her pick of the free item.  The total was $16.25 for three clothing items which I thought was pretty good.

Despite the mall closing, the department stores stay open one hour later.  We headed towards the makeup section of Belk since I needed some new eyeliner.  Went to M.A.C. and tried on some gel eyeliner.  The makeup artist that catered to us was really nice.  I drew on my eyeliner really nicely to where the makeup artist there was in awe and waved over another makeup artist to show how precise I did my makeup.

In the end, I left the mall with some clothes and gel eyeliner.  We went over to eat at a Japanese/Chinese restaurant where my other friend worked as a hostess.  My friend was also nice enough to pay for my dinner as well for driving her around.

I was craving sushi so I got eel, salmon, and salmon roe sushi.

I also got a salmon tempura sushi platter.


She got a vegetable pad-thai which was also yummy as well.

I didn’t get much sewing done, but it’s nice to get out once in a while.  Take a break.  Sorry for the long post this time, and this post should be dated for Sunday.
