Dude!! Its been 2 years since I update the journal!!!
So much happening this past year. Like being the anniversary of 1 year being ntr-ed........
Please ignore that...
Haven't got a chance to write this year resolution...well here's mine:
-Getting fit so I can do back/front flip
-Be fluent in playing Violin
-Win silver medal on Taekwondo tournament
-Finish unfinish cosplay
That's for now.
Last year on November I also go to AFA SG, somehow it's now become a tradition to go to AFA. With a new cast member of course, I met new friends too. Well at AFA I got press card since I'm now helping a friend writing a journal about cosplay event's in a pages in facebook called 'Cosplay Jakarta' so I get around the event easier. Though I've been so busy with life that I haven't got a time to edit and publish it.. Met Reika, she recognize me from FB since I promise her to give Kuroko's Kiseki no Jidai strap. Also met Kaname too!!
On the first day I cosplay as Shamuon NicoNicoSinger from Invisible PV with :iconOllashiki:
and on day 2 as phail Yata Misaki since I forgot some of the props at home
In this AFA I also attend dinner with the guys from other country like last year!!
A month after Singapore trip I get a chance to go to Japan!! A home-stay trip too nonetheless. I depart on 8 Dec transit in Kuala Lumpur then fly off to Haneda. Arriving around 11 PM, got to stay in a hotel first though. When I turn on the TV SAO is being aired XD
For a month I lived in the old Japanese couple house with their family. They said that its the first time that they got Indonesian as a home-stayer. Spend the first 2 weeks studying in a small campus, studying Japanese language. The other 2 weeks, exploring Tokyo!! Well I only explore much of Ikebukuro and Akihabara
Can't believe that I'm on the spot of Durarara, when I'm in Ikebukuro.
Comiket & Tonacosu
On 29-31 Dec, there's this massive convention in Tokyo Big Sight. If you're familiar with it, its called Comic Market. Where all doujinshi, cosplay photobook, doujin music, and stuff being sell-ed.. I attended it with Cathy, Rey,
friends from Indonesia that also got a chance to attend it. Met many epic cosplayer there!! I also met Sound Horizon Jimang, Amatsuki, Koni, and Hashiyan. Bought a few CD's and cosplay photobook on the process.
On the other hand, at the same time in the building in front of TBS there's also an event called Tonari no Cosplay, Tonacosu for short. It's where all Japanese finest cosplayer gather!! Met Kaname there, he still remember me. He even stop wall of photographer to talk to us 8'D When we say that we all are from Indonesia, most of the Japanese cosplayer look surprise. If you want to go to this event you must pay 2000yen though, that is if you cosplayed if you're not or just want to be photographer you must pay 3000yen. Unlike Comiket, where the entrance fee is free.
In my observation, Comiket is where all the first try cosplayer are. Like the first time you're cosplaying. And Tonacosu is where all the cosplayer can just have fun, without a pervert stalking them. Ah..and also manner when cosplaying in Japan is very different than most other country. In Tonacosu the cosplayer can't get out the event hall once they're in cosplay costume. I'm pretty sure in Comiket also they cosplayer are encourage to not dress in costume outside Tokyo Big Sight. The changing area also different, in Comiket, cosplayer can't change in restroom instead they offered a big hall for them to change and do make up for each gender. In Tonacosu they instead had 2 room, one for changing and one for make up for each gender.
Happy New Year!!
Actually the event is on March 2-3 lol
It's a pre-event for event called ClasH that will happen this year. I helped a friend of mine, and suddenly I become an assistant guest star guide. The guest star for this event are Raistlin (The Winner of 2012 AFA), Valerie Aya, and Kaname. I get in charge helping guiding Raistlin and Aya ^^ At this time I pretty sure Kaname already recognize me lol
Cosplayed as Yata on 1st Day and my friend as Neko, in coincidence Raistlin is cosplaying as Munakata and Kaname as Fushimi * w*)/
Day 2 I didn't cosplay.
Well that's the end of this update..
