It has been a long time since the last entry and for that I'm sorry. How many times now have I started an entry by saying I'm sorry? I guess I'm not so good at this blog thing. First off what am I support to write about? My life and thoughts I guess. But whenever I write something I end up thinking: why do I write this, would anyone care, would people thing I'm stupid or lame?. Maybe many people have these kinds of thoughts more than once while they write on there blog or other places like Facebook or Tumbler. So what do you want to read about? Well I guess you want to read what ever I write since you have found your way to my blog. So I better just write what I want, but don't fret, I will keep some sort of red thread.
Since it has been a while, I want to write a little about my blog and myself. I'm not starting this blog all over, I'm just starting a new chapter. I mean each time I write a new entry on a new day that?s like turning the page. Right? and change is good :) Now I'm going to assume you do not know anything about me, not a single breadcrumb so bear with me. Maybe you find out something you did not know at all.
My name is Marie Louise and I'm 17 years old turning 18 in less than two months. Different feelings there. 1: I'm looking forward to be able to go out with my friends, get more responsibility. but 2: I'm struggling with the thought of being an "adult" and not having the same sort of support from mom and dad. I mean the money I earn are all over the place >w< Hopefully I will learn have to make my money last until the next payment day xD I?m called Miyako meaning midnight child or a child born after midnight in Japanese if I remember correctly. I?m also called just Marie. I live in Stavanger, Norway and the source to my blog name: GreenVilla is that my house is kind of big and it was green before. Now my house is a warm grey color, but it is still nice ofc ^w^ I?m soon done with my second year on St. Olav Vgs and I?m happy I only have one (hard) year left before further studies.
I?m not what people would connect as beautiful, but I like how I look. Ofc there are parts off my body I would change and with a bit of will power I could change them easily I believe. I?m 1.59 cm tall, I like to change how I look by changing my hair length and color. Here are some pictures over the last years. I started by changing my hair color and then tried out new hairstyles.
And This is me now (need to cut my bangs again ^^)
As you can see I love to transform into a ?new person?. Maybe that?s why I fell in love with the hobby: Cosplay. For those who do not know, cosplay is a word composed of two different words. Costume and Play. When you have cosplay as a hobby you dress up as characters from movies, series, comics, manga, anime and games. You basically express your fandom a bit further than others normally would :) It?s like Halloween everyday xD I started Cosplaying the 4 of May 2011. It was the first FCBD I went to and it was my first convention. Since then I have been to conventions like Metrocon and FCBD in Stavanger and Desucon and Coscon in Oslo. I have started making my own costumes and so far I have made three full costumes. And for Metrocon 2013 in Stavanger/Sandnes I will attempt to make the costume to Wiccan from the comic Young Avengers. So far I have just made skirts, vests and a jacket. I look forward to try making something I have no experience in, but I?m afraid it will look weird on me ^w^? Anyway more information on that costume will come later in another entry. Connecting to people in the cosplay community is fairly easy and everyone is open and friendly. It?s an awesome community and since I started I have joined the cosplay group PON-cosplay. I think we are nine or ten members and every one is so awesome and creative! You should visit N1njaG1rl?s YouTube channel. Our videos are published there. :D
I?m very interested in Japanese culture and I believe that?s what started my interest in the cosplay hobby. I?m trying to teach myself Japanese, but wow its hard xD I can introduce myself and say random words, but not connect them to whole sentences. Other hobby?s I would like to mention is Karate. I managed to take 5 kyu while I was still active in the sport, and for those who are not known about the belt rate that?s the first blue belt. The belt colours are white, white with yellow stripe, orange, green, 1st blue, 2nd blue, then 4 brown and last there are 10 black belts. There are three more grads, but very few people in history have received those last three titles in karate. I would love to start train karate again, but because of school I had to pause my training. Before changing the theme again I want to mention my awesome mother who will in just 1-week attempt to take 1. Dan. The first black belt! I?m so proud, but I?m also jealous because I was the first in my family (except my father, who trained karate a bit when he was young) to start training and introduced my mother to the sport. Anyway, You go mom! You can do it :D !
I have an amazing family and very good friends. People living in my house are my father, my mother, my twin younger sisters and our dog Tara Maki. My mom and dad are the best. Sure we can disagree, but I love them and would not ever replace them. My sisters can be a pain sometimes, but I guess in a good way xD I love them and they are so special to me. My dog is the weirdest creature I have known. She is a mixed breed and I would say she is the baby in the house. We treat her like a dog ofc, but she acts like a baby and she do stupid, but brilliant stuff all the time. My best friends are Kaja, Kamii (Kaja) and Suzu (Silje). They are so amazing and being with them make me learn how to approve myself and make myself better. :) Love you!
There are so much more I could write about myself, but I will end this entry after giving a short summery on what my blog will contain in the future. In short I will write about my everyday life when something I see fit write about happens, I will write about my future cosplay plans and the work I do to get ready to the next convention. I also make videos on YouTube so subscribe to theGreenVilla if you want and find the contant interesting. I will also write about future video pland and behind the scenes here. I guess that?s it.. for now that is ^^?
So good night, sleep tight and I will hopefully write soon
