Japan Beauty Week

So after struggling with flood that literally made every inch of Jakarta wet for the past 2 days, I finally have a chance to update this blog for Japan Beauty Week which was held last weekend at FX mall Jakarta.

This event was full of expensive cosmetics and pretty girls.

there was also free skin check

IMG_2896s

Olive des Olive showcased their clothing as well. I don’t know, but they don’t seem to have any intention to sell their clothes. lol.

IMG_2894s

and various stuff which i don’t understand 🙂 seriously, girl’s make up items are too damn many, but as long as they make them pretty, men will always support them. 🙂

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.

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

Culture Japan Night 2014 in Jakarta

Yesterday I went to Danny Choo’s CJ night at Jakarta Design Center. After every AFA each year, there will be a small event held by Danny Choo on the next day called Culture Night Japan.

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.

IMG_1769-14-sMy friend is one of the participant here, but he lose on the 2nd round.

IMG_1773-18-s

This time, Franzeska edelyn cosplayed as Maid mirai! how adorable~

IMG_1757-2-s

IMG_1777-22-s

Those who are lucky enough can take photo together with Danny choo. but I queued in the end of the line so I ran out of time. the venue was closed at 9PM sharp.

IMG_1809-49-s

 

Mr. Danny’s camera awareness is pretty good lol

All mirai cosplayer lineup!

Anime Festival Asia 2014 – My Experience

Here we go again with Anime Festival Asia 2014! This year’s AFA was also held at Jakarta Convention Center. Held on the 15-17th of August, the same day with Indonesia Independence Day!

Due the massive amount of works I’m currently doing recently, I only able to enjoy afa only on the saturday night, I came on Sunday night but only to pick up my kanojo.

even though it’s only for a short time, it was fun because I could meet with my friends.

IMG_1703-5-s
Love live counter, every otaku’s favorite “idols”

but that day at afa, people had one more “idol”

IMG_1712-14-s

 

yes, the almighty 6,7 million rupiah smart doll mirai suenaga…. which was sold out on the first day

10405225_10204737411024783_6378963011259408745_n

Worship our god!

lol, me personally doesn’t have a taste for dolls, but it is always intriguing to see how 2D anime girl can affect human ^^

IMG_1716-17-s

well it really is pretty.. no doubt about that.

IMG_1714-16-s

 

then the AFA cafe. Met Jim and He said the cafe was running good and smooth. Yutakis was there and he drives women crazy with that handsomeness of him (or should i say prettiness?)

the one thing i knew about Yutaki is that he has that feminine side of him…. no, not like I personally experience it, I just saw him from outside the cafe. lol.

IMG_1718-19-s

Re-on booth! as usual, Edelyn was the official cosplayer of Re-on, and this time there was also Shinta and Laks

10620668_10204492107206372_8956899129783679803_n

 

I also got Re-on official photobook on the day before afa,

IMG_1696-1-s

IMG_1698-3-s

I also documented the ‘behind the scene’ of re-on Rise photoshoot

IMG_0490-s

See the full gallery here

ah yes, for those who haven’t got the RISE photobook and want to have it, you can directly order this book from Franzeska Edelyn’s Page

Please buy, oniichan!
Please buy, oniichan!

Then i watched SAGA at sony mini stage with my friends, SAGA was damn cool!

IMG_1732-29-s IMG_1731-28-s

 

maybe everyone already knew that SAGA is a multinational group, the girl is Korean, the guy in the middle is Japanese, and the guy in the right is Chinese. All of them speak English so they can communicate well with their fans.

IMG_1705-7-sAnd then the ULTIMATE ZEONG!

ah look at those puny unicorn and banshee… meh, zeong will destroy your asses!!!!

lol, the zeong was sold at 5 million rupiah.

and there is this organic shaped gundam

IMG_1736-33-s

 

that’s not really like a shape of a gundam, but once again, I like Turn A, so I can handle a little abnormalities in gundam shape 🙂

hell yeah baby
hell yeah baby

and then there’s these ultra cool one piece figures

IMG_1738-35-s IMG_1737-34-s

 

*rainbow puke*

in the end I didn’t buy anything, sigh… compare that to our reon mascot who put her freebies she got from AFA on her Instagram:

IMG_1753-50-s

 

godamnmit i’m jealous

but I got these loots given to me, which is nice

IMG_1755-52-s

hahaha, I don’t know what happened to you dear canon photographers, but that photo is so purple. I edited it a bit here so it won’t turn like purple Reon.. hahahaha

Anyway AFA was fun even I only enjoyed it a little.

where am i? stuck doing my paperwork for my study with my group

IMG_1746-43-s

 

that’s my group leader, not me.

Cheers!

 

 

Fashion is you – Japan Matsuri 2013

Hi there~ I have been so lazy updating this blog, one of the reason is that because I was busy travelling around Kalos region, trying to catch ’em all, to be the very best like no one ever was.

which… i have not finished yet, still going around the frozen cavern at the time being, i don’t know how to catch haunter without killing it XD

so… last Saturday, there’s an event called “Fashion is You” by galleries lafayette, which is a fashion show for amateurs and non model.

I was there because Franzeska Edelyn and Marsha Indira from Kyorindays were participating in the event.

the categories were “cocktail time” for Edelyn and “Smokey rock” for Marsha, here are some photos:

POPCON ASIA 2013 with Switch – My Experience

header

Last weekend, I went to Popcon asia 2013 for 3 days. This is an event dedicated for pop art culture held in JCC Jakarta, and was filled with popular artists from around the world like Mr. Kim Jung Gi and Mr. Kunkka.

This year event was larger than last year’s, with higher quality guests and merchandises.

IMG_8758
the atmosphere of the event

There are many talented young artists from Indonesia, and my friends here also participated:

They sell posters, pins and their own artbooks.

IMG_8822

Those are some badass drawings by the way… damn man, this event was filled with lots of badass artists whowill put your drawing skill to shame. lol.

One of my favorite creation in the event was probably this company who displayed some really realistic figurines I’d hope I can just steal the things.

IMG_8820

Cool

 

If you’re hungry and don’t want to spend 70k rupiah on the most expensive nasi goreng you’ll ever seen in your life at the cafe outside the event, you can eat this popular chicken gyoza for 20k per 5 pieces

IMG_8813

anyway, I was at POPCON for the Japanese Station booth with Switch

Switch is a part of Japanese Station navigator, they are 5 girls who will navigate your life to a better otaku path, lol.

Here at POPCON, they sell their first merchandises for the first time.

IMG_8802s

if you buy their photos, they sign the photos for you!

IMG_8840s

If you buy the Switch packs, which contains a T-shirt, photos, and a sticker, you can get a polaroid shot with one of the member.

I took some shots of the members, they’re kind enough to give their time to pose with me:

from left to right: Neza, Nia, Edelyn, Femke
