#MayThe4thBeWithYou on #StarWarsDay

by sakuraso

Yeeeeeeah. This is a bit late, but I was all busy altering my hair again :P SO YES. On May 4th I met up with Chriss to take her to Oon for hair negotiation, we hung around a bit and bought random candy while waiting for vermilionshadow to finish her hair appointment – yup, I pimped her to sassoon too XD We went to Forbidden Planet, cause it’s awesome. And I was übercool and bought Star Wars books.

Once we picked up D, we headed over to her place to marathon Star Wars. But first… we got distracted by the Adidas store.

I bought the most awesome sneakers ever.

I love them! AND THE ATTENTION TO DETAIL.
They are amazing.

New hair! (Again)

by sakuraso

I finally got my undercut! Not quite as short as I expected, but I expect Oon will shave more off if I ask him >D
Apparently it suits me, can’t remember the last time I was hit on so much in one night.
No wait, I can. And I was blonde. But when you’re blonde, it doesn’t really matter what you look like, people just see the blonde =_=

I might get Oon to take the undercut a bit higher too, the rest of my hair feels a bit emo XD So if the undercut goes higher, there’ll be less to go over~ But we shall see. His creative training & test comes first.

And lovely Poppy made my hair CHERRY RED. YAH.

As I headed out, all the sassoon stylists & colourists on their cigarette break were all OMG THIS IS COOL.
OON & POPPY ILU <3

PINK ♠ …not

by sakuraso

This is no longer me :(

The day of our last Dye Party, I got stopped by a Sassoon stylist who was in need of a model for his classic test – considering I’m pretty free with my hair (I’ve been planning an undercut…), I agreed since all it was was a 50s classic bob, colour doesn’t matter – couldn’t hurt right? XD So I show up for the prep, and in the longest hair cut of my life, we got this:

Nevermind the expression, I hadn’t slept and had to go to an early photoshoot before appearing at sassoon XD
And yes, my eyelid is swollen. Cause they used Barry M. Which I am allergic to.

Then it was decided my hair would have to be a single tone, otherwise you’d see the individual layers etc.

So after 9 hours of colouring, we have:

Not gonna lie, I miss the pink. But this is growing on me.
I have to keep the colour for now anyway, as the colourist wants me for her colour test.
And on Thursday, I’m one of the stylist’s models for his creative test too.
So watch this space, for I have no clue what I’ll look like after that XD

Anti-porn activists and slut-shaming. (via Helga Dís)

by sakuraso

Posting Helga’s blog post, because I could never be this coherent when arguing this.

In the early 80’s there was a shift in feminist writings and instead of writing about the empowerment of women and how they should be able to do what they wanted without being held back by their sex (such as work as firemen or a lawyers or in fact work in the sex business if they so please) the writings increasingly turned towards anti-porn discourse. The anti-porn discourse is in essence a form of censorship not only on pornography but also on t … Read More

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
