managed to take photo with reon on sunday. pardon my face lol. as usual, reon booth is one of the largest booth there, and always crowded full of hungry zombies attracted by the sweet pheromones of the ladies at reon booth. i will update more reon photos later, as they are in my camera.

and then there are pink babies. these cute underage idols are the perfect jailbaits for the pedobears lurking at afaid.

POPCON 2014 – my experience

Yeah, I know it is 3 days late to post this blog now… I have been busy with my-goddamn-why-it-is-so-fucking-hard- finance exam that rendered my head uncontrollably overheat after I couldn’t finish the 5 questions in the exam in time withing 3 hours. *siiiiiiigggghhhh*

okay, enough about this finance shit,  now, POPCON!

okay, POPCON is a convention where many artist gather to show off their skills and works. It is like a place where (if you’re an artist) you feel like a year old toddler who just learn how to hold a crayon in your hands. everyone there is good and their works are awesome!

I, with my friend arip, collaborated to make our apparel brand called “AI” and we sold it at Japanese station booth.

IMG_1970-5-s

 

AI is our design brand, we sold fun things like stickers and pins.

GJUI 20

Yesterday I went to GJUI 20, located in a faraway land of Depok inside the huge ass campus of University of Indonesia. GJUI is a Yearly Japan exhibition.

I was at the Japanese Station booth the whole day, selling stuff.

IMG_1824-9-s

And in this event, picculture.com exclusively worked together with franzeska edelyn and Japanese station, released a series of seifuku poster that we sold at Japanese station booth.

The poster was sold out! thank you!

in this event, Edelyn and Donna did a duet singing kinjirareta futari from AKB48

I didn’t have time to shoot many photos since we lacked of staff, so I was running here and there to take care of things 😦

anyway, otsukaresama deshita!

Thank you to those who bought our posters!

In CJ night you can talk to Mr. Danny, basically it’s a meet and greet session.

There is also a moekana tournament, where participant will be given random kana cards and try to make Japanese words out of them, and the player with the least unused card wins.
