Happy Halloween 2013! Masquerade time!

Sakura and Syaoran - Masquerade by ~wishluv on deviantART

Happy Halloween 2013! I'm a little late this time, unfortunately. Thank you so much for all the birthday wishes. You don't know how much it means to me. And loved all the artwork and vocal talents of everybody. 

Thanks Kamaku Lemjane of FB, Draugurok, Saloni Khoja (loved a reverse-harem with long-haired Sakura,and Bubulona20 for awesome fanarts. Hopefully I'm not forgetting anyone.

Loved all the song presents too. Kirei Blossom has the sweetest voice ever--a blend of Sakura+Tomoyo in my head. I got excited that you sang "Part of Your World" because everyone knows I'm just a Disney maniac. OLD SCHOOL DISNEY TWO-DIMENSIONAL ARTWORK Disney. Yes, that deserved caps. Anyhow, I had to giggle because I actually had been drawing a Disney-themed Halloween pic but postponed it because it required too much effort. You will see it someday, and I'll dedicate it to you. And Arigatou was so cute! Have you become fluent in Japanese over the years? You sure sound like you are now. I'm debating whether or not to add the links... May I have your permission to do so? But I respect your wishes.
Hazuki Goldair of Syaoran the Waiter Boy fame covered one of my all-time favorite songs, "On My Own" from Les Miz and nailed it. And boy do I know what a difficult song it is--you should head on straight to broadway! 

Between all the musical talent in the New Trials fan community, I'm surprised we haven't been able to make a full-production anime. Lol. One of you two can sing the OST.

Best scene of Little Mermaid--Part of Your World Reprise. I think Ariel has the prettiest hair of all the Disney princesses.


  1. Part of Your World Reprise! I was giggling all the way throughout - good old Scuttle. First the way he peels open Eric's eye, and then tries to detect a heartbeat from his foot. LOL!

    And Sebastian was always my favourite character in the movie. Haha, I used to love that bit where his jaw hits the ground like that, and Scuttle's all "yeeeeessssss, aren't they lovely together?"

    I was never much fond of Eric - he was a kind of wimpy and pathetic character. Even the Beast had so much more character development than this guy ever did. For me, The Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast will always be the best Disney movies, (followed by Mulan) and I liked Beauty and the Beast a bit more than Little Mermaid. But the Little Mermaid is undoubtedly a really fun and entertaining movie to watch. I think the whole appeal was that every single character in Mermaid was totally nuts - from Scuttle to Sebastian to Flounder to Ursula to that Dog and Chef and Butler guy. Even Ariel, Eric and King Tritan were kind of nutty. And in contrast, Beauty and the Beast had only Gaston as the nutcase while the other characters were eccentric, but they were normal and sane.

    When Tangled came out, people said "When will my life begin - Reprise" had something similar to "Part of Your World Reprise". But it can never be the same level. And the best has got to be "This Provincial Life - Reprise" where Belle runs across the meadow and the camera pans into a full-shot and then she sings "I want adventure in the great, wide, somewhere. I want it more than I can tell...". That is Disney at its most epic. Sigh... ^_^ Oops, this turned into a Disney rant. Why did they never go back and make epic movies like that again?

    Wish-chan, have you seen this: Jodi Benson sang Part of Your World again at the 2011 expo. She's 50-something years old, and yet you can still hear Ariel in her voice. She's amazing, and she comes across as a really wonderful person - and that dress is so beautiful. Paige O'Hara sang some Beauty and the Beast songs in that expo too ( You can still hear Belle in her as well. And Lea Salonga sounds the same as she did years ago in Mulan. I was actually torn between deciding whether to sing Reflection or Part of your World for your present, then went with the latter since I see it as more of a lively song.

    Okay, end of rant!

  2. OH wish-chan!!! I love that picture. I've been wanting to see that picture for so long! Thank you for the kind words about my wedding. We did the red ribbon of fate from your story. As soon as I get pictures I'll post them so you can see :) I also had my reading be Miho's poem about love. Hope that's okay.

    Thank you so much again!

  3. I love the fan art! Youre amazing and I really wish this was an anime!!!
