Weee! My shirts from Zazzle finally arrived. I've been meaning to get one when Chun first showed the art and shirt prospect at DannyChoo.com. I was hoping she can order some and I'll buy it off her, lol. So then she told me about a deal from Zazzle during Remembrance/Veteran's Day sale, so I took up the offer and ordered the Tare-DC.com shirt along with a custom shirt and a magnet to increase the minimum I need for the discount. The second custom shirt was actually denied at first because I put a Haruhi Suzumiya picture in it... so I had to redo it before November 11 ended. But it was finally approved and was shipped on the 13th or 14th of November. I only received it on Monday, on the 24th...
So as you can see in the picture above, I look exactly like Chika Ogiue from Genshiken. I haven't cut my hair for a while and it grew that long, so I figured might as well keep it to make this shot XD And I like the shirt very much, it's just that... my belly's stretching causing it to wrinkle up on the side >_<
The other shirt I ordered is my own custom shirt I've been meaning to make for a while now, but I needed something better than going to the post office or printing it on an iron-on decal. This is my "John Smith" shirt. Well if you're wondering why it has an SOS Brigade logo in the front with those letters, then you need to read The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya, Volume 4 of the light novels and the Bamboo Leaf Rhapsody chapter of the third volume. Or wait until the second season of Haruhi Suzumiya starts XD Those who can't wait to know what it is then read the spoilers below. Those who want to wait, skip the following text after this sentence.
*** SPOILER ALERT ***
In the Bamboo Leaf Rhapsody chapter, Kyon ended up travelling back in time to 3 years ago when Haruhi was just a middle-schooler. Since Kyon doesn't want to reveal who he really is, he uses the name "John Smith" instead. Haruhi doesn't believe it, but like she really cares. In The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya, Kyon was suddenly transported into a parallel world, which makes him a slider! In that world, Haruhi was not in his classroom nor in the school, which made him believed that Haruhi "disappeared". In actuality, she was at a different school altogether. Kyon needed her to get himself back to the "real" world, but she doesn't know him... Which brings us back to "John Smith", the only name Haruhi would recognize. When it was finally resolved, Yuki claimed responsibility and told Kyon that her higher ups might reprimand her for what she did. Kyon told her that if the Integrated Data Sentient Entity do anything to her, then he'll use the magic spell, "My name is John Smith" on Haruhi, which should initiate Haruhi's power to get Yuki back and eliminate the Entity.
*** END OF SPOILER ***
Anyway... before I went off on a tangent... the other thing I ordered was a Katamari magnet, and really it was just something to boost the minimum total, nothing too interesting.
I got my brother to take my pictures. Thank you very much bro, especially for your patience while I had my wardrobe change lol! So I've edited some of them and while I was at it I made some more just for fun ^_^
Yes I know I should've put Kyon's face instead, but the pose and the armband is Haruhi's XD
