As said, I would do a journal about my awesome amazing waaw trip to Japan 8D Well, this is part one
I'll cover the cosplay part first, since it's DA and my watchers only watch me for my cosplays anyway xD (hey, I know it's true XD)
So yeah, let's start
OF COURSE WITH PICTURES!! WHOOP WHOOP! XD
Our first cosplay experience was the shoot at the beach in Kamakura! It was amazing. For sure one of the most enjoyable shoots I've ever done!
Also, you can totally tell that people in Japan all know about cosplay. They were taking pictures of us taking pictures! xD But then again, it's not an everyday event that a Star Driver crew walks into your beach xD
Anyway, picture time!
We got dressed at the hotel. It was, just saying, THE BEST HOTEL I'VE EVER BEEN!'
So yeah, went to the beach, only a 5 min walk, did I already say how amazing the hotel was 8D?
The shoot went awesome. And although it was really warm, I was still really happy to do so. I mean, Star Driver at the beach. ITS A MUST!!!
Although here, we still look like a boyband. And no, that's not a good thing!
The sea was so pretty! I feel lucky being able to go there. I felt so... aliiiiive
Aaah, the more I think about it, the more I miss it >_<.
Also very happy to have ~Chihiro007
there as my awesome dad/head/Tokio/... It wouldn't have been the same without you! And of course the amazing *RosaCosplay
for taking the pictures! What would we have done without you ;D
We tried to copy a part of the anime here! If you saw it you'll probably know what I'm talking about! *TAKUTO PUUUNCH*
BAM! Sugata close up (and Head's ass facing the camera xD)
Once back at the hotel, we decided to get dressed, cause in about 15min the food would come ;D
1) Because I am a lazy Takuto (and prefer Sugata as my slave)
2) Our awesome natalie acting like her usual self again
You know we love you for it!
Although we didn't expect them to come over to the room with the food. Cause Katja and me were still wearing our cosplays and all xD. Although I totally lol'd (and kinda blushed) when they came in and saw us in our cosplays. Ah well, they thought it was fine :3
This is what it looked like! We were all getting ready to eat. And the food was already on the table. Although I have to say, I'm not a fan of real REAL REAL authentic Japanese food, I don't regret trying every part of it. It's a must do, that's for sure!
That day, I also learned that Natalie doesn't eat much xD. + She can't work with chopsticks! Natalie eating, LIKE A BOSS!
Also, doing some shooting there, because we can, and because the hotel is amazing! (I'm not sure if I mentioned this before already ;D)
Takuto and Sugata go OMNOMNOM!
Also the most amazing thing happened to me on this day. It was my bday a few days before that. And I wasn't only blessed to celebrate it in Japan. I also have the best friends I could wish for!
gave me this
ISNT IT AMAZING!!!!!
I was so surprised about this, I actually cried D8. And I don't usually cry in public ^^' Or at least, I try not to. So yeah, this totally made my day EVEN MORE!
I really didn't want to eat it. I mean, it's a Takuto cake. TAKUTO CAKE!!
But not eating it would make it go bad D8 I def didn't want that >_<
... of course can't eat cake without making some weird shots with it xDTakuto: What is this on my face... WHY DOESNT IT TASTE SWEET!sugata: Hehehehe...
After this, we did a Boys love shoot. Although I won't post picture of it in my journal. Dun wanna freak you guys out too much xD
This is the one I uploaded though. I might uploaded another one later. MIGHT
Anyway, that for being the Kamakura shoot ;D
On to the next one!
The main shoot we had. It was at a rented studio. Thanks again to Ryo for doing this for us! We had loads of fun
This was one part of the location 8D. We were joined by 2 other Japanese cosplayers who cosplayed from P&S and Vocaloid. And of course by the lovely LYDIA WHO I LOVE WITH ALL MY HART!
Check her stuff out, she's amazing -->>
So moving on! We had loads and loads of pictures done! Like loads!
I just chose some of the funny ones xD DERP PICTURES COMING UP!
We started out doing out FAB outfits xD Or at least, Ryo and me did XD. Ginga and Head! FTW
I love acting like a total derp sometimes!
... YES ACTING! xD
We (ab)used the cage first. The most fabulous part of the location, or at least for Ginga!
I'm so jelly of Lydia! On all pictures, she only had one she didn't look 100% pretty. D8 HOW DO YOU DO IT!
Sugata, Y U NO BE IN CAGE!
You don't wanna keep Head waiting :3
Another thing I learned in Japan. Lydia likes it HARD D8... She freaked me out + hurt me on so many lvls xD...
Huuuuuuu Lydia, Y u no be nice to Takuto!
Tananananaaaa! *makes Zelda sound*
You have obtained a Sugata!
The only way to get Sugata in the cage, was to lock Takuto up with him.
I'm like, SO unimpressed. Talk to the haaaandNot so unimpressed anymore huh Takuto... That's what you get, ignoring Sugata!
From all the pictures we took that day, this is the only decent group picture D8 MAKES ME SAD! SADFACE!!
And of course, it can't all be epic pictures. MUST HAVE DERP! These are probably my fav!
You know what's sad. You only know how uke you are if you're getting topped by a girl... Good thing all of my next cosplays will top again! ... (yes, this was a really REALLY random thing to include!)
This was our second photographer; Cookie! She was so nice to us, and although I didn't understand a word she said, I really like her 8D. Since she was a huge Star Driver fan and thought Katja and me looked like Bishounen xDD
After a few more shots (and over 2 hours of shooting) I changed into my other Takuto! Whoop Casual Takuto! So I can make awesome shots with awesome Sugata 8D Which we did xD Ryo and Lydia decided to stay in there outfits for a little while longer
Look at them being awesome together!
And look at me being LIKE A BAWS over Sugata! Owwwyeaaah!
1) I look so clueless! Sitting there waiting for something to happen. I'm not sure what I was doing there bth xD
2) Taking advantage of you when you're sleeeeepingGeez Sugata, I wonder why this invisible fire is not giving off any heat...Really Takuto... REALLY?
Well there was some kind of... fake fire in there xD But you can't see it in pictures. Makes me look like an idiot! D8Uhm... hello... What do you think you're doing?
Don't mess with Takuto's stuff D8
And yet another Japan lesson learned! DO NOT CHOMP ON FAKE COOKIES! They're not tasty at all D8! Sugata;And yet you still try to eat those cookies. Takuto, you idiotTAKUTO DOES NOT WANT
Getting abused while Kanako gives instructions to Sugata what to do... Does this happen everyday you ask? Well yes, yes it does.
I can't stop posting Lydia in her amazing outfit
I've never seen a better Kanako
After cookies, now chomping on chesspieces! And Sugata can't stop laughing xDDD (really makes me laugh xD)
Tired of cosplaying? Drink Ice tea to replenish your energy! 8D Believe me, with about 32° outside and 28° with airco, you need a good drink from time to time. Who's a cute Sugata, yes you are! Yes you are!
Sneaking up on your son when he's about to get some. Isn't that what every dad would do :3 NO SUGATA, WHATEVER IT IS, I DONT WANT IT! Takuto:No dad, I'm not dead yet...Head: Damnit!
Takuto taking some shots from Kanako. He says it's for school...But we all know better then that :3
As the shoot was running at his last moments, we got ready to go change back into normal clothes. Although with an outfit like Kanako's, that's easier said then done!
1) Being chained up, does this happen a lot? With Sugata around, more then I would like to admit...
2)Takuto:THIS BOOK, IS THE BEST BOOk! EVER! Sugata:Takuto, can you even read...Takuto...leave me aloneI'm pretty sure I've seen this before.... but where......Takuto, that's a porn magazine inside a book...WHAT IS THIS?! I DONT EVEN....S&T: KIRABOSHITakuto: Wait, what?
Takuto being forsed to talk with his dad after a heartbreaking reunion... I don't think so.
After a good... 7 hours off shooting I believe? we were done and ready to go back home... or well, to the hotel in our case! It was amazing meeting the cosplayers as well as the photographers! And it was even better seeing Lydia! So after some food at an awesome family res, we took our goodbye.
The last thing I wanna include in this journal is the cosplay event we went to in Japan! It's so not what we're used to but still SO much fun! The cosplayers are all so friendly. And they made us western cosplayers feel like real bishounen! xDD So never EVER say that Japanese people bitch about western cosplayers. EVER
We of course, were cosplaying from Star Driver (try getting something else from home when you're at the other side of the world xD)
I don't care! I love star driver xDD
And these were some of the amazing cosplayers we met over there!
I found both Shaman King AND Fire Emblem cosplayers at the same event. IT WAS AMAZING. It seemed to good to be true
The location was amazing. And now I'm sad we didn't take more pictures when we had the chance. Ah well, we had a great VERY GREAT day, so no regrets :3
And although I was totally dying in this outfit, again, I REGRET NOTHING!
We also got a weird ass photographer who asked if he could have some pictures of us. Although tbh, i'm not even sure if he knew what he was doing D8
And to make it even better! We found another head cosplayer! He was soooo nice (and also really cute
Buuutt, since I couldn't really stay in my bishounen for long, I switched to casual Takuto for more shots with Sugata :3
And again, the location was wonderfullllll <3
I wonder why it can't be this pretty here in Belgium >_<
BELGIUM, Y U NO LOOK LIKE JAPAN XDD
This, this, THIS
Purikura with the Star Driver group
This has to be the most amazing thing we did all day. It was so SO worth it (as you can see xD) DERPING AROUND IN A PHOTOBOOTH! We need them in Belgium as well >_> I was SURE that we were gonna meet up here... 100% sure! But now that they're all an hour late... I'm not so sure anymore...
SHINY PANTS ARE SHINY
Ice cream... My mortal enemy >_>
Also, can we look any more Derrrrrrp then in this picture? No really, who sucks the other side of their ice cream anyway... SIGH! xDD (I regret nothing)
... you try eating ice cream when it's melting when you just got it! HAH, YEAH THATS RIGHT! IMPOSSIBLE! xDD
That's all for now 8D I hope you enjoy this cause it took me FOREVER to make! It's not been one month since I've gotten back from Japan, and I still miss it more then you can imagen. Not only the country, but also my good friend Ryo...
I'm really hoping to go back in two years. :3
