夏の祭り

Hello beautiful and wonderful people !
Sorry for delaying the video post again, but I hate back-tracking about events/dates so I’m going to get these out of the way first! So yes, on Saturday (12th Feb); I met up with Vu, Amanda, Sam and Min (again!) to go to the Japanese Summer Festival (夏の祭り) that was held at Docklands. o(・∇・o)(o・∇・)o
Heh, I decided to wear a cosplay type of Kimono; which I found out after I ordered it; was kind of a mix of Japanese and Chinese traditional clothes. But either way, I love it! Although, I found it SUPER embarrassing wearing it around the city *^* ! But whateverヽ(´ー`)┌ It was worth it hehe.

We also decided to take purikura one last time together before they leave hehe. (*-*) I really like this machine booth ! I decided to decorate it more like a weird/funny style whilst Amanda did kind of a cutesy style !
We arrived at the festival quite late and it was packed with people
So packed that I didn’t manage to see a few people that I wanted to see 。゚(゚´Д`゚)゚。 Furthermore, the lines for the food stalls were crazily long so none of us bothered (and we already ate Grill’d and Macarons before hand) ! 
Oh, but I did manage to see Shirley (in the black) ^-^”! Highlightttt!!
Although, it sucked that I kind of missed her dancing. Well, I saw a bit of the dance, but there were so many people that I didn’t end up seeing her (√Д\)。!But it’s okay, I managed to see her in her yukata teehee!
As we were about to leave; I decided it would be best to change out of my cosplay and in to casual clothes considering I wasn’t ready to go through the intense stares again ! But yes, it also meant that it was the Goodbye to Amanda and Sam as they were leaving the next day !  。゚(゚´Д`゚)゚。
The three days I met up with them in that week alone was heaps of fun and I miss them heaps! And I know that even though we all live in different states; we’ll definitely see each other again sometime soon! 
♥ ♥ ♥
Have you ever worn something different out to your city?
And did people stare or gawk? 

Oh, there were so much gawking that day that I pretty much hid behind Vu for the majority of the day!

    hahah Baby you were so shy that day. :P The festival was sooooo crowded. Gosh, the line for some the stalls seemed endless! o____o

    Overall, it was a fun day with you, Amanda, Sam, and Min.

    P.S – I thought you looked really cute in that cosplay kimono outfit >:D

  • srhtrng

    That is one of the cutest cosplay costumes I've ever seen <3

    People cosplay in the city all the time and I just oogle at them from afar for having the courage haha (:

  • super-rabbit

    Ohh, you look so cute, I wan duh put you in my pocket XD!

    Hmm, people tend to stare a lot when youre standing out here XD
    sure there must be people who think i dress weird and wear scary lenses, but the majority of the people like it when I look like a doll XD (uhhh girls* that is XD!)

  • Vu

    P.S.S – DAMMIT, I keep forgetting to add things. This is like the third time I've done a post script as another comment. xD

    But anyway, to answer your question, I've walked around in the city before in cosplay, but I wasn't too bothered by it. It certainly was embarrassing at first though, but you get used to it after awhile of walking. xD

  • Rebekah

    Hi Melody ^^

    Your friends and you look so sweet in the pix . Hope you guys had a fun time !

  • h.tea

    Ohmygosh, your cosplay outfit is so pretty! I can't believe I didn't see you! Also, Amanda is so purrdy!!!

  • Bibi

    Waa, you look great in your cosplay kimono! And don't worry about people staring at you, I'm sure they were thinking: look how cute! ^^

    You have a wedding to go to this weekend? Have fun! Weddings are wonderful (though I wouldn't know because I've never been to one, but that's just how I imagine them to be). Hehe, thanks for the invite, you're so sweet ^x^

  • Alicee

  • Gyaru Mika

    aww you looked gorgeous in that kimono <3
    Super kawaii *Q*
    And yeah,I walked around the city with a cosplay some time,too and people always stared O__O and asked "Is there something special today?"
    x)

  • 김은화♡

    You look really nice with the kimono ;___; ! It happened to me something similar with wearing not-casual clothes. Two years ago for a japanese convention I wanted to wear my kigurumi. I had a long time from my house to the convention and it was quite embarassing wearing the kigurumi ;__; everybody in the train was laughing at me. Since then I haven't put my kigurumi anymore just at home. ;___;

  • Jilliancat

    hahahah this reminded me so much about my cosplay days. :) I hide behind my bf all the time!! But I tell you what, don't look at people's expression even though u know they are staring, just look straight and never look sideways cos when ppl walk past u. dey tend to look sideways too then u'll feel awkward. walk straight n just be normal. :D

  • Julie

    Awww, you're so petite! & that kimono suits your kawaii appearance! ^^
    But you're really brave to have walked down the streets in that kimono. I'm always scared of cosplaying and wearing "attracting" outfits as people might make remarks but I personally think it is awesome when people dress differently :D

  • Celina

    Adorable <3 I'm so sad I didn't get to meet you that day :(

  • Elisa ♥

    Cutie pie !!! I've never worn anything like that, but people will def stare at me if i'm wearing it, cause it's not normal xD even if it's on a festival lol

  • Eva

    awhhh you look so cute in the kimono cosplay!! *^^*
    Last year i went to a anime convention and me and my friend weared cosplay as well, when we walked around the city people really stared at us! that made me shy ^^''

  • Isabel

  • Jennifer :) ~

    Hehe cute! I've never worn a kimono before or cosplayed, I've only worn some dress-up costumes in primary school lol, and I've gotten some surprised looks from others T.T I wore a puffy green dress once and everyone stared.. it wasn't even that dramatic or anything haha :/ And naw you met Shirley ^^

  • Rocking Doll Museum

    yes I've been walking through the city with my whole soifon cosplay on (thanks god I wasn't alone on that day xD) and people were staring like crazy -.-" I was so uneasy at first but after ten minutes of walking I strangely got used to it =)
    I'm glad to hear you had a lot of fun =)

  • HitomiNeko

    Aw, the kimono is pretty! Even though it's a mix of two different styles, I think that really makes it unique~
    And the collar looks huge, lol.

  • petitechouxx

  • Caroline Josephine

    When I went back to the USA after I finished school in Japan and before coming back to work I only had Japanese close and EVERYONE would stare at me like I was a freak XD I wasn't even wearing anything THAT strange… just more fashionable things, dresses, shorts over tights and leg warmers. I felt stupid dressed in just jeans and a t-shirt, so I didn't let it bother me, but it was really weird XD

  • Ailing ♥

    Awwww! You look adorable in that kimono? Dress? Cape? :P HAHA! Cutieeeeee!
    Oooh, and you can purchase your Sigma brushes right here:

    I hope all has been well. xx

  • Mirai ♥

    Haha I love your outfit. It looks kind of cute! It reminds me of waloli somehow :D (mix of lolita and yukata)

    I used to wear my lolita dresses out; its kind of strange but I'm used to it. But sometimes people will ask; "hi, are you back from a themed party?" which I'm kind of annoyed. >__>""" And there's people asking for pictures! Did you encounter that?

  • Orphin Lasz
