Description

I believe it's a cicada, though not all that brown as I have seen before, more dark blue around the eyes as I recall

No doubt a cicada, good call, I was more wondering what sort, as around its head/thorax area it is more bluish than brown, or at least that is what I saw

Cool, I almost never see cicadas. I'm pretty useless at ID'ing them though, sadly.
