After finishing work on Kiryu, I decided to make pixel art of friends of mine next. HERe:NE~!
l-r: Zaku, Wakiko, and Ren
Zaku was fun to make because of the puppy ears she always wears with her costumes xD. I’ve already sent these to each of them and Zaku absolutely loves hers, so I’m satisfied with the way they turned out.
For those who don’t know who they are, HERe:NE are a very talented all girl visual band based in Sendai. They don’t really have much of a following outside of Sendai, but they certainly deserve more love☆
Half Christmas- Celebrated on June 25th, 6 months (half a human year) after official “recognized” Christmas, Half Christmas (#HalfXmas) allows a second chance for embracing the spirit of giving with friends, families, countrymen, and willing celebrity endorsers.
While the date simply halves the calendar, a Half Christmas observer is not expected to decrease their celebratory footprint in any way. Full tilt holiday cheer is not only expected, but encouraged; and for every holiday sweater’s sleeves cut, evergreen tree shortened, and cubicle tinsled, there is someone chugging keg nog with reckless abandon; and it is they who are exhibiting the true #HalfXMas spirit.
But unlike secular and ethnic holidays based around themed alcohol intake, Half Christmas isn’t meant to send one face down to the bar mats; but face up to the ones you love, without having to go to Church with your Grandma or shovel the back porch. It’s a time to party for things important to you that may have been neglected in times of non-mall decorated nativity and claymation specials.
Half Christmas is what you make it; as long as you make it like you’re celebrating Christmas in a different time of year and slightly changing the customs and practices to better fit the new month.
In a Sentence- “I used to think Half Christmas was just another greeting card company holiday, but then I couldn’t find any in the store, and I realized, this is ours, babe, this is ours and ours alone, and also our dozen friends I invited over so let’s deck the halls.”
Coming Next Week: The Workaholics Tumblr mentally prepares you as we celebrate half the holiday, with “The 6 Days of Half Christmas”.
