What @bout my star? @ Tokyo and Gakuen Heaven?  
What bout my star? What 'bout my staaaaaar? Let's catch up on present-day! ^o^ Last weekend was a lot of fun... at least Sunday was! I was so busy running around!! I woke up, got ready, and then headed off to the Macross doujinshi&cosplay event, Project M, in Oota-ku. Then at about 1, I headed off to Tsukiji for the gakuen heaven musical. Then I jumped on a train to Odaiba and headed out to Zepp Tokyo to see if thee was any chance of getting tickets to the immediately-sold-out Cheryl Nome x Ranka Lee debut concert! I got soaked, and I was broke the whole day from the horrendous train fares (I spent nearly $30 I think all told..) BUT! I had a great time!!!! *bounces*

So..... at the doujinshi event, which I've been waiting what-seems-like-forever for, I was crossing my fingers and wishing upon a star that someone would be awesome enough to make a SherylxRanka doujinshi. Of course, as expected, my hopes were kind of in vain... ^^;; I was never able to find one. There was some gen/comedy/wtf, some luv-luv or hentai gen, and a ton of yaoi (about half or so). It seems that especially, Alto x Michael is big.. Well, I can see it, considering that Alto is SOVERY gay that it hurts to see Ranka and Sheryl falling all over themselves to get him lately! Oh well, they will end up with each other in the end, I'm sure! ^^ But yes, no SxR, sadly.. Adrian and I are thinking about getting a table for one or more of the later events, and making some doujinshi/goods. Well, you know what mine will be!! ^o^

The Gakuen Heaven musical.. was... short!! Whoa! It was only 45 minutes long, with about 10 minutes of bowing and encore at the end. It was pretty funny at times and hideously slow at others, but not being familiar with the story, I kind of expected a lot more BL in it. ^^;; Sad! There was nothing but a few almost-kisses and an incredibly forceful guy insisting that the main character was "MY HONEY!" LOL... Well, at least there was plenty of time to get to Zepp Tokyo in time! XD

I hadn't been sure that I would even go to Zepp Tokyo. After all, I didn't have any spending money, and I didn't have tickets. Plus, it's FAR away. But in the end, after calling Adrian and finding out that there were tons of goods to look at outside, I went. I'm glad that I did, because MY FAVORITE PICTURE EVER, the cover of the next single, was on GIANT DISPLAY! (pictures below). OMG OMG OMG YUM! I know that I must have said this before, but it's like the Macross creators read my mind. ^-^ I think that it's about time that we have a lesbian Macross couple, right? I mean, it takes place in the future so it should theoretically be totally accepted! And I mean, how absurd could it possibly be to have the main two girls in love, when int his universe there is a whole race of people who can be stopped just by singing to them. XD;; Seriously! I think I will seek out the creators and push them in this direction.. *plan START!!*

The poster for the doujinshi event outside.. ^^

First off... cosplayers! Some of these pictures were ones that I took (maybe you can tell the difference?), and some were taken by evaproto, just prettied up and editied by me! XD;;

Oh yeah... who'd have thought that someone would make this costume?!! YAY!!

She said that she colored her wig with a marker... wow!

I have no idea...

This is the poster that I was talking about... DO YOU SEE WHAT I MEAN NOW? ^o^ Surely it's canon now!!

What 'bout my star? You are my star!! ^^ That scene in episode 15 had me in such a good mood! I was like, IT'S TRUE!! ♥♥

Ferris wheel... ^^

This is where the concert was. Alas, we never got to see it... but it's a much smaller place than I think that they should have chosen. The halls in Shibuya are a lot larger, why didn't they choose those instead? Oh well.. I don't mind missing it since I'm sure that even though it was 'Sheryl and Ranka's debut live', it was actually just the actors and they weren't dressed as them. People have to learn that it's not the same thing, not by a mile!! ;o; The seiyuu are regular people, but the characters.... if they were dressed as the characters, I would pay hundreds if I had to to get a ticket! ^^;;;;;;;;;

Mmmm look at the great goods that are going to come out in Animate (?) soon! Well, I will definitely be broke... ^^;;

The line of people with tickets waiting to get in stretched around the block..

LOL at the tower in the distance!

I don't know what this was, but it LOOKED like a giant Chou-creme! Which means I wanted it!! I will go back when I have lots of money one day and buy the whole thing!!! :3 Mmmm yum!! (Chou creme are one of my big weaknesses in Japan ^^;;)

I thought some people might appreciate this drink? =D =D

*coughs* But.. I want to be in the middle...

Okay, it really should be more like this...

Nyan-nyan card collection that is coming out in the end of September.. I don't like or collect cards, but I might have to get these if they're really pretty... (and if they're original art!)

Gorgeous delicious deculture!

Adrian's cute japanese friend! I forgot her name, though..

Hichan x Ferris wheel?? o.o

Can you see the Ferris wheel in the building? ^^It changes colors so it was purple at that exact moment in time. ^^

I really liked how this experiment turned out! ^^

Picture or it didn't happen: Eda made GOYA on Monday night, and invited me over to eat it!

It looks yummy but... well, Goya is really, really bitter.... o.o;; I would eat it again though, it wasn't that bad! (certainly better than natto!!)

The only thing that I bought at the doujinshi event: A fan-made Alto glass! Funny spelling mistakes and all, I think that it's really cute. I might give it to a friend since she's a bigger Alto fan than me. ^^ (not that it's hard!)

These were free, but... omg Sheryl Nome candy! YUM! They taste pretty plain (I think that they'd be better with cinnamon flavor), but they're so cute! They have the design of Sheryl's earring in them. ^^

So, now anyways, the real question is.. should I cosplay Sheryl for Comicket? :3 (The answer is no.. I want to, but I don't have the time or money to make the costume by that time.. sad. Tragic, really. T-T)

I think you would make a great Sheryl! If only I had the time, I could have made you one of her outfits ;o;

Awwww, you're so sweet. ^-^ Next time we get together for any reason, we should cosplay from Macross! You could be my Ranka, you would make such a cute Ranka!

Thank you! ^o^
Chacolechaco on July 31st, 2008 02:24 am (UTC)
I also think you would make a good Sheryl! :DDD If I could sew, I would like to cosplay Ranka. XD She's so cute X3
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on July 31st, 2008 02:26 am (UTC)
You should try!! ^o^ Sewing isn't hard or complicated, at least basic sewing isn't, and that's all that you need to start out with! ^^ You're lucky, you can cosplay the short, cute characters!

You should definately cosplay Sheryl, if not for Comicket then for another con =)...and I am so jealous of the awesome things you get to see living in Japan!!! (The marker-colored Sheryl wig is especially awesome- it looks way more accurate than a straight blonde or pink one)... and RankaxSheryl end FTW =)!!
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on July 31st, 2008 07:10 am (UTC)
You really think so? People seem to think that I would make a good Sheryl (despite the height!)

You and your sister should come and visit Japan sometime!! ^^ I got the greatest Louise and Feldt figures today that remind me of you guys!! (from the new 00 Heroines set) ^^

Wow, you would be a good Sheryl! I've only seen a few episodes (i'm on #8 now!) but you could definetly pull it off! :D Which outfit would you wear though? She has so many pretty costumes!
Hi-chan (火ちゃん): Macross F - Sheryl x Rankahinoai on July 31st, 2008 07:13 am (UTC)
Ooooh thank you!! I wonder if I should really go for it.. Maybe I will try and make it by Comiket!! (though I don't want to go too much into debt, lol!)

I was thinking of doing the military-esque one. (this one: http://namutaku.net/livejournal4/mf19.jpg)

What do you think? ^^ Or if you see another one that you thyink would suit me, point me to it! It would be easier to do the green one, for example, but this one is a little more suited to someone really tall, I think. ^^ Though I kind of want something that shows off my boobs. =D

Doesn't it look like the most delicious breakfast???? *o*
Kathy: w-inds.kisa829 on July 31st, 2008 03:30 am (UTC)
Cosplayers! I don't even know this fandom but they all looked so awesome!

I really like the one of you with the ferris wheel in the background. Oh, and the one with your hands all over the poster XD

OH, MY HONEY! In the anime some of the beginning scenes are really suggestive but it turns out to be some mundane chore or activity, haha. But it doesn't have as much BL as it should! ToT But I'm glad you (somewhat? since some parts were slow) enjoyed it! I'm jealous you got to see it!
(Anonymous) on July 31st, 2008 03:49 am (UTC)
OMG that looks sooooooooooooooo much fun!

I'd give up my job to attend the Superlive concert.

Wow, such... modern places :)

I'm always impressed your pictures always turns out so good.

Shuu creme is one of my favorite things also, there is a shop inside the Ueno train station that has it near the "Atre" which just HAPPENS to be near to both a bookstore AND a Starbucks, so it's the perfect thing, I can buy! books! browsing any of them I want live with no internet~! and get a huge iced coffee, and a shuu creme, and well it's just the best vacation evar.

So, I did actually do that pretty much every evening on a vacation, crazy thick great murder detective mysteries, coffee, sweets... so a shopworker at the Starbucks asked me where I lived, was it near there, surely? Since I been coming for two weeks?

Alas, no, other side of the world...

If I could somehow teleport there with どこでもドア it would be crazy awesome :)
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on July 31st, 2008 07:53 am (UTC)
Odaiba is a really nice part of the city, right on Tokyo bay. ^^

Oooh I know that shop!! There's also a few other places that I go around the city when I get a chance to-- especially Beard Papas, which has special seasonal flavors! there's one of them inside of Tokyo tower. ^^ There's also a REALLY yummy new place on the outside of Shibuya station., whom had strawberry flavor with bits of strawberry inside!! Mmm!!
(Deleted comment)
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on July 31st, 2008 07:54 am (UTC)
Me too!! At first there was almost nobody and I felt so sad.... but it really picked up and suddenly it was like Macross WORLD everywhere!!! =D

Okay!!! I've decided that I'll definitely look into it and ifI can afford it, I will cosplay at Comicket and Chara Hobby next month! I don't know if I will make it to AX next year, but I am definitely going to ComicCon if it's at all possible!
Sakura Moonselenity136 on July 31st, 2008 04:25 am (UTC)
What anime convention is this? Comicket?
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on July 31st, 2008 07:55 am (UTC)
Nope, Comicket is next month. This was a small Macross doujinshi event. I linked to it in the post. ^^
yungumii on July 31st, 2008 05:34 am (UTC)
lol..after watching the first episode of Macross Frontier, i was actually thinking the same thing about that black skimpy outfit that Sheryl was wearing. i was wondering if someone would cosplay it and boy was i right..XDD

u would make a really good Sheryl =D u should do it~ but which outfit? XD she has so many. and thanks for getting me into this series..@__@ im so glad now..i really like it.
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on July 31st, 2008 07:56 am (UTC)
XD Now I only want someone with the right size of chest to wear that black outfit!!! =D ;;

I'm thinking of doing this outfit: http://namutaku.net/livejournal4/mf19.jpg

It seems the most like it would fit a tall girl. But I will keep looking, I haven't completely decided yet, since I'm so broke! XD

That reminds me, now that I'm finished with Legend of Galactic Heroes, I can catch up on Macross Frontier!
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on July 31st, 2008 07:57 am (UTC)

Episode 15 is the BEST! Don't mistakenly think that it's just a recap episode... it's so much better than that!!! ^o^
hagelschadenhagelschaden on July 31st, 2008 06:52 am (UTC)
Post more foodpics xD I just love food^//^ And coffee xD

japanese cosplayer always look so good, but when you see european cosplayer...some look really good but most they look not so good.
thats why I don't do cosplay ^^''
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on July 31st, 2008 07:59 am (UTC)
LOL but there are so many better food blogs than mine out there. XD Though I do love trying new types of food! ^o^

Really, you think so? I think that it's just that in the pictures, you can't tell how well made (or not) the costumes are. A lot of the costumes that I saw at Anime Expo were better, and I think that it's better when a caucasian plays a caucasian character and vice versa, you know? ^^;; Though it doesn't always matter as long as the costume is awesome!

Kira_Shadowkira_shadow on July 31st, 2008 08:38 am (UTC)
I wanna be able to take pretty pictures like you =X

it only tastes really bitter if it's too old, tho...
and if you don't prepare it "the right way"?
(well I guess there is no right and wrong way in terms of food but let's say I'm biased and think that my gradnma's vietnamese goya recipes are better than... snibbled goya in a frying pan with tofu? lol ack I really really really wanna cook for you guys T_T)
(Anonymous) on July 31st, 2008 09:56 am (UTC)
Gotta love that poster of Sheryl and Ranka....

They better bring it out on a wallcroll or normal poster!
bimong on July 31st, 2008 11:00 am (UTC)
gakuen heaven is probably the weirdest thing they could have made a musical out of (i haven't seen/read/whatever it, but i have a few friends who are fans), but i kind of want to see it, so i hope they release it on dvd. but whoah, 45mins? that's hella short!

ooooh the coffee beans, gimme gimme! *coffee freak* .. well, not to that extent, actually.
and this is the best cosplay ever rofl! XD

and as for your question, i say go for it! looking at your pictures, i think you'd make a good sheryl.
