Cosplay Sundae: Shampoo (Ranma 1/2) Cosplay 18 APR 2010

More Yaya Han cosplay time again, this time showing us some Shampoo of Ranma 1/2 fame!

You don't really want to mess with Shampoo and her broadsword, now do you?

Ranma 1/2 was one of the first manga books I ever came into contact with and Rumiko Takahashi’s form-changing martial arts romantic comedy soon had me in absolute stitches with the various misadventures of Ranma and Co. One of the many delightful characters to grace the story was of course that of Shampoo, the Chinese warrior girl who swore revenge on the female Ranma by means of a “Kiss of Death” for defeating her in a prior annual martial contest.

She eventually came to Japan and after giving the male Ranma the “Kiss of Marriage” became torn between kill and marrying the poor lad, before she too befell an accidental trip into the sorrowful lakes of transformation and ended up becoming a cat. Known for her bad bicycle delivery driving skills, where she routinely knocks people down (usually Ranma) no matter where they are, be it the street or rooftops, Shampoo is in fact quite a skillful martial arts beauty and is most definitely not someone on whose bad side you want to be!

As for our passionate cosplayer Yaya Han, little more has to be said of this ten year veteran cosplayer that has graced many a convention with her passionate and extremely detailed (and quite often outlandish and rather revealing) costume designs. As per usual and as you can see, she pulls off a perfect character impersonation, much to poor old Mousse’s satisfaction.

(Not that it helps him get any closer to her of course!)

Simply put, Mousse never learns, now does he?

Waterworks My Life 23 APR 2008

It was a fun morning yesterday for the two of us as I was sitting frantically trying to get everything on the server back up and running after finally fixed my PHP installation late last night and Chantelle got to sleep in a little later thanks to being on late shift for the day. Lucky bugger!

Anyway, eventually she managed to roll out of bed and after a wake-up cup of coffee and a quick hello, she hopped into the shower to get ready for work. She had graciously offered to let me shower first, so I was back in my office working away when I heard a shriek and then a desperate shout of “Oh no!!” coming from the bathroom.

Monday afternoon when I arrived home from work I arrived to a flat without any water. It looked as if they were working on the complex and had to shut down the water for the duration of their work because just an hour or so later the water was running freely again. But as Chantelle found out first hand, it looked as if they weren’t quite finished with their work yet! :)

So there stood my soapy liefie with conditioner on her hair and nowhere to turn (for some reason the geyser was already drained), eventually accepting defeat and asking me to get the last supply of water that we had in the house – namely the 2 litres of cold water we keep in the fridge for drinking purposes! I tried to warm it a little by adding the last little bit of warm water that was in the kettle, but by now you all know where this little story is heading – I can’t help but chuckle at the shrieks of freezing terror that escaped out of that bathroom :)

Maybe next time she should borrow some of the fishes’ water?
