Music Video

by sakuraso

Our music video yo. Supports eeeeet. And yes, I’m wearing a mask on my head like a badass.
I’m not posting the dance version because it causes me pain.

Secteur de la Petite Alice Volante

Random camwhoring by me & Chriss.
Cause I can’t remember if I posted it already.
And now I should go write something about the Girugamesh gig.

Legolas you camwhore!

by sakuraso

I bought a Legolas plush :O I bought a Gandalf too, but I gave him to my boyfriend…. and now I’m considering buying myself Gandalf too XD;

I’ve actually now pulled an all nighter tidying my room, and I’m reaching the hyper phase XP; Which means I probably shouldn’t write up the Girugamesh gig right now, ’cause it’ll probably come out all sorts of weird.

雅-MIYAVI- What’s My Name?

by sakuraso

“Portugal was freaking hot. But I think London will be even hotter, right?”

Chriss and I, surprise surprise, managed to arrive only just in time for the doors opening. We were too busy eating Chriss’ homemade curry. That, and stupid weekend tube closures >.< Unfortunately, this means Chriss missed her meet & greet with Miyavi (her ticket was VIP), ’cause they never told her it started at 6:30 >.< But they did get him to sign a card for her~

It was an incredible gig. Quite toned down though. Just him and his drummer. Dressed in black. I’m really surprised by the lack of violence… I was at the front, I should have been mauled like at Girugamesh, but most people were well behaved. Except when Miyavi came right in front of us and climbed on top of the speakers, at which point there was a very definite crush. Beautiful moment though, when the staff members started running around trying to hold the speakers in case they moved and he fell off, and to adjust the microphone. Though that wasn’t all that necessary, ’cause we were doing quite a good job of singing for him XP

“My voice is gone, so I want you to sing along. But I’m not sure you know the words :P”

There was a really touching moment when he spoke about the earthquake in Japan, about how difficult it was for everyone, and how hard it was to go ahead with the world tour, leaving his family and friends. He then asked for everyone to do a 20 second silence. Unfortunately, one moron let out a pretty loud giggle. Which was then followed by several loud “SHUSH”es.

They brought on a stool for him to sit on, which he gracelessly gracefully plopped down on. He talked about how it was thanks to us that he was back in London, and how he was happy to be back. He said that since the last time he was here, his second daughter was born which led to a brilliant moment:

“My daughter Jewelie was born … She was so smiley. Now she’s so chubby.
She drinks a lot a lot a lot of milk. Too much.”

The gig was being recorded for a live album, which is good news for those who couldn’t go :O Funnily enough, there was far more pushing and shoving in the queue than in the pit o.O We each bought a t-shirt, poster and poster-booklet thing. We didn’t have enough money for the CD >.< But we figured that we’d be able to get that another time, whereas the concert merch is a one time thing~ Chriss nearly got her hands on one for discounted price – we were approached while waiting for the tube by guys who worked at the venue and got the CDs for free, and one of them said he was broke and wanted to sell it so he could go to the pub… but then got into a massive dilemma over it. And we lost it. Oh wells.

Chriss doing an impression of a duck. While holding the poster-booklet thing.

This was also my first gig with my boyfriend. Good times. I have to admit to being slightly relieved that he kinda floated off during the gig, cause I got a bit self conscious XD; lolol, he’s going to kill me XP

MOOGLE ♥

by sakuraso

My boyfriend bought me a moogle ♥
This was actually a while ago. I’m posting it now because I’m procrastinating from essaying, cleaning my room and writing up the Miyavi & Girugamesh gigs XD

雅-MIYAVI-

by sakuraso

I’m actually too tired to write up a full post right now, but at least this time it’s only pure tiredness, rather than fangirl violence. The gig was pretty violence free, which was surprising. There were a couple of idiots, but fewer than normal XD;

Miyavi was of course, AMAZING. And so very very very playful.

But now I have to sleep. Or my body will give out on me >.<

Girugämesh!

by sakuraso

They were amazing. I am however too tired to write a proper report. I’m also in need of pressing an ice pack to several places. I was at the front and in the middle – i.e. I was a prime target for violence. Someone even tried pulling  my ear bling =_=; Not happy.

I will say: Oh my god, Nii, those glasses. Oh my god those glasses. Oh my god, Nii, those glasses.

I will mentally compose my report. And go to bed. Because tomorrow is Miyavi. Though I might stick to the back tomorrow, I’m not sure I can handle any more injuries =_=

Don’t you wish you were doing my degree? XD

Secteur Alice

by sakuraso

Secteur De La Petite Alice Volante

 We…. formed a band. Kind of. The idea was a sort of punk lolita type group. It’s a shame the project is taking place at this time, since I have the most work now. So at the moment I’m at my most tired and most stressed. I.e. I’m in a rubbish mood all the time XD It also means that every time we met for rehearsals and filming, I was super tired and without energy. Unfortunately, it also means that I’m now seriously behind on work :/ Not quite sure how I’ll catch up.

It actually pains me to post this, BUT OH WELLS.

The whole idea is for it to get viral and people send in responses and stuff. We even have blogs. We all took on “band names”. Chriss & I took on DEKO & BOKO i.e. dekoboko i.e. でこぼこi.e. the best word in Japanese because it has the most awesome awesome kanji ever.

凸凹

Yes. That awesome. Chriss & I actually tried to get it into the band name, but when we failed, we took it ourselves XD

So yes, band blogs:

DEKO | BOKO | Séq | Shrimp

Which reminds me, I should really update mine. Especially my ‘pillow of the month’ – the sequined snakeskin one was for February. In case you couldn’t tell, I was designated The Sleepy One.

♬ ♪ ♫ ♩ ♬

I’m slightly worried about the PV.. actually, the dance version more so. I don’t think they got even one shot of us in time XD; Of course, now that all the filming’s done, we’re getting pretty good at it. I don’t think I’ll ever forget the dance now.

All in all, lolita, even pink punk lolita really doesn’t suit me. As much as I complain about my various flabby bits of my body, I in no way consider myself fat. Except when I was in costume. The PV outfit was better, since the trousers were too big for me – so there was no way I could wear them up high >D I also got to wear my chain new rocks, which cut across my calves making them look smaller XD;

I wonder how they’ll edit the PV so it doesn’t look like we were all freezing. And adding vodka to the tea.

So yes, please, if you can, support the project!

At the very least, please like it on facebook!

Krispy Kreme~~~~

by sakuraso

In honour of the most awesome Polish day ever, The One Where You Eat Doughnuts, Chriss and I escaped from SOAS in order to get some Krispy Kreme from Tesco. They had two particular awesome ones – pink & purple AND GLITTERY.

They kinda tasted like lip gloss though.

I feel very very sick now. But oh so very good.
