AFAID BACKTRACK!(ノ゚▽゚)ノ☆彡ワーイ♪

Finally backtrack to AFAID !

What can I say but.. wow! Haha.
AFAID experience prepared me for what was to come for AFASG’12!

It was chaotic and scary! Haha.
But I forged stronger bonds with many people!

This time, it was my responsibility to take care of the cosplay celebrity guests as well as some of the exhibitors.

We invited popular cosplayer Akatsuki Tsukasa!
She was admittedly, not my 1st choice, but I could not contact Mon Shie (.__.);;
BUT! Tsukasa was a surprise! I’m so happy it all worked out!

There were many embarrassing moments I will not say, but thank you for putting up with me, Ah Si!
We became friends since, together with Judy!
Also became friends with their care-taker, Alvin!
He’s amazing and always watching out for our health haha!

With the pretty Ah Si!

With Judy Jie~

Team Tsukasa!!!

I also got closer to Hajime-san, famous Japanese photographer! Haha!
He is hilarious! He gave me lots of gifts, keep squishing my cheeks and SUDDENLY did Japanese stretching exercises with me haha!

 

Also got closer to Mika-boo, whom we shared a room with!

I was worried for her non-stop (T_T)

Another person I got closer to was Kaname-san haha.
We finally talked haha!
I had to rescue him from fans and get him to his schedules on time!

He also crashed one of our colleague’s hotel room on the last night to eat all our left-over food haha!
4 of us were having a pity-party! haha!

We were so out of it, we bursted into song while watching MTV while Kaname looked at us like (o_O)? .
Kaname kept going “piKAAAchu!” on the second day too haha.

He is super good looking as Saruhiko!
I told him I wanted to cosplay characters from K too, and he suggested I go Kuroh~
Well, it’s on my list as well hah!

All the handsome butlers:

I gained another dongsaeng, the very good looking, Jino! (Top left) Haha!

All the pretty maids:

=3=

Missing Tora though (.__.) I forgot to colleage her pic aigo…
I also got closer to other colleagues as well! It was a good trip that I made many wonderful memories from!
I had the most fun there really! (>A<)

dorky glasses with one spo!

I never liked overly round glasses, but my recent trip to Japan and One spo changed my mind when the whole store was filled with shop assistants in cute dorky glasses! (*__*) So much cute!

Taken from one spo blog~ !

I remembered them being quite pricey .. and I know Singapore would have cheaper ones, so I quickly went to Bugis street to get my own XD

Tada!

Some outfit coordinates :

^ WC top, forever 21 shorts and tattoo stockings (random from Japan)

^ listen flavour top, nekomimi ears, leopard stockings from japan and black shorts from ONLY

Thought I would share something I came across yesterday~
I always had a fascination with Maiko and Geiko, I bought several books on them and loved the beauty and dedication of these beauties.

Fukubukuro / lucky bags 2012 Shibuya & Harajuku reveal 福袋中身公開!

Decided to finally blog again due to unrevealing of all the lucky bags I purchased in Shibuya and Harajuku.
To be honest, I was only going to get lucky bags from Shibuya, and not go back into punk and lolita, but there were many good deals, so I couldn’t help it >_<

Harajuku started their fukubukuro sales first.
I eagerly queued up at Liz Lisa’s!
I wanted to get the premium trunk bag!

HOWEVER!
to my dismay… the trunk bag was sold out !! ahh! I missed it by ONE person infront of me!!
I bought a cheaper lucky bag:

<LIZ LISA> 
IMG_4811

All white coordinates!

The next day, I went to Shibuya 109 at 7.45am, and queued for like 15-30mins at the stairwell.
To my surprise, they had A LOT of trunk bags left, and there were 2 colours! White with pink accents or pink with white accents

Whatever they stated on their brochure / website is more or less what you will get~

<LIZ LISA>

IMG_5041IMG_5061

The cashier who attended to me remembered me from the day before! She was like, “ah you were at harajuku!!” haha.
On my 2nd last day in japan (5 days after fukubukuro sales), liz lisa in shibuya 109 still had 3 pink trunk bags left~ The white ones were sold out~ they also had all the other bags~

Anyways, I’m not sure what time shibuya 109 opens, but it was definitely earlier than 7.45am! I saw many people with bags by the time I got there!

<WONDER ROCKET>

One of my first lucky bags was from wonder rocket.
I like most of their items (from momo) so I purchased one on a whimp..
To my surprise, it’s all mori-style!
I love a lot of fashion styles, but mori isn’t something I ever though of trying….
I love the skirt though! So poofy! No idea if I want to sell the skirt yet or not.. I’m still thinking >_<

<SWIMMER>

I also went to Swimmer.
I didn’t take much photos cause there were too many items!
Some of which includes, spectacle box, lantern night light, a pot, jewellery stand, a lot of stationery and notebooks, an apron, a pair of shorts

<ALICE AND THE PIRATES>

Feeling dismayed on my failed liz lisa trunk get on the 1st day, I went to harajuku and spulruged on alice and the pirates.
The Jumper skirt set was sold out, so I purchased a prince set:

From the site:
IMG_4819

I went to Shinjuku Marui one and purchased the Jumper skirt set 2 days later!

<ALICE AND THE PIRATES>
IMG_4880

In Harajuku, the BTSSB sets were sold out after one day, you can find most of the sets at Shinjuku Marui one though!
Since I purchased a metamorphose set earlier, and gotten a dark blouse, I wanted the coordinate with the white blouse instead.
I told the sales lady and she helped pick a lucky bag with a white blouse! I realised some customers do that when I was shopping, and tried my luck. Actually on the bags itself, the one I wanted to pick had the letter “W” and circled, so I suspected it was a white blouse, and the sales lady also picked that one up! The others were labelled “kuro”, so it was a dead give-away!

<ANK ROUGE>

IMG_4821 IMG_4827

For me, the ank rouge set was the most disappointing one :(
It had a lot of sweaters / thicker wear which I did not need.

 

<TRA LA LA>

The 5,000yen tralala sets were all very cute, so I bought one and am very pleased!
What you see in the brochure is mostly what you get~

IMG_4828IMG_5037

 

<LDS>

I didn’t want to buy the LDS bag, but the shop assistant was yelling with such passion!! Also the bags were so cute!! I purchased a 5,000yen one (brown bear). There was a 10,000 yen one with a different bear.

IMG_4830IMG_5042

Came with a pvc skirt, sweater and another pullover and a bear which I gave away ~

<PINKY GIRLS>

I walked around shibuya 109 and purchased a pinky girls fukubukuro as well!
The sales lady was very nice, explaining to me about what was inside.

 

IMG_4831

For some reason, they also gave me some aroma sticks!

The pinky girls lucky bag is my favourite and most unexpected bag, because I really had no intention of getting it at the start. Also the fukubukuro bag was really well made!!

I wore 2 items (blouse and skirt) from the pinky girls set on my first day of work in 2013:

<ALGONQUINS>
One of my favourite punk brands is Algonquins! So naturally I would buy a bag! Although I had no idea what would be in it.. the sales girl tried to explain but I didnt understand a word haha.
IMG_4836

A bit disappointed with this, I only used the outer wear a lot !

<METAMORPHOSE>
Their lucky bags came with styles, you can choose from, I bought this on the 2nd day of sales in harajuku, so many of the other styles were sold out.

IMG_4837

Not too happy with a dark blue blouse, matching a white skirt…. so I may sell something, not too sure yet (>_<)

What I didn’t get cause they were sold out :
1. One spo: I dillydallied on the other floors, when I came down, the person infront of me got to the last bag first arghh
2. D.i.a: I went around the building so many times, but I hesitated, when I finally decided to purchase it, the bags were all sold out >_<
3. Cecil mcbee: I think these were long sold out before  I could even blink
4. Putumayo: they had A LOT of bags on the 1st day, but sold out on the 2nd. Angelic Pretty as well!
Another brand I noticed with long queues besides liz lisa and d.ia is BACKS. So be sure to ge there early!

I didn’t get tutuha, mars, golds infinity, glad news, gilfy, mainly because the coordinates didn’t look nice or I had no clue what was in it @_@
