4th Intl Gyaru Lovers Winter Meet-up

Hello everyone~
Here I am again after a long time. I know I said I'd blog much more but I didn't have anything to blog about, except maybe my meet-ups with my dear friends. But since I always post a lot of pictures on my instagram, I didn't want to just "copy" everything in here. Please check my instagram out if you want to see more updates of me! I post a lot of outfit pictures and other fun stuff on it.


Let's start with what I actually wanted to blog about! 
The big annual Gyaru Winter Meet-up in Frankfurt am Main, Germany.

It was such a great weekend, I was so happy to see all of my friends again and have a nice weekend after all the university stress going on before. Ina, Sui, Brandon and me drove over to Frankfurt on friday already because we didn't want to stress ourselfs as much as last year. First we thought about seeing some of our friends but when we were in our hotel/hostel, we didn't want to move anymore and just wanted to lay in bed, cozy, and talk. We wore our Kigurumi or cozy pijamas and I mean didn't we look fabulous? The staff was really surprised when they saw us...

On Saturday the big meet-up took place. We first met everyone at the train station just like last year and surprise we were part of the first ones arriving. That's a first. I was so happy to see a lot of my friends again which I didn't see in a really long time and I was just running around to talk to everyone while Ina and Sui went to McDonald's to not freeze to death. Btw here's my outfit and make-up from that day~ (Riina photobombing me of course)




When everyone was there, we went to the venue the hosts rented for us. It was really nice! It was a really good idea to do so. (please click on all the pictures to look at them in HQ)

The hosts planned a whole schedule at the venue which was really nice. In between I tried to talk to a lot of people too, but it's so hard! There were so many and I often talked to someone and then we got stuck in a conversation. That might be the reason why I didn't take that many pictures. I got to know new people too and I can only say it again: I am so thankfull for this meet-up! On this picture you see the venue a bit and my table with my babies on the right.


On the schedule there were an introduction, a little bring and buy, para para, the giveaway and the awards. When Kitai and Kyo made the introduction, I told my friends at my table that I bet they forgot that I come from Luxembourg and that they might add me to the girls from NRW, Germany. But I thought wrong! They didn't forget me~ cutie pies called me on stage with the girls from Spain. I felt like a stupid unicorn again as the only Gal from Luxembourg. I wonder if I'll always be the only one. I found one picture, from the cute Lau, of me on stage. (please don't mind my weird pose)

The awards were, to be honest, a part I didn't really look forward to. I don't like these things because it starts some kind of rivalry, which I hate. We could vote in different cathegories for "the best" from one of the people attending the meet-up. Big minus: not knowing all the names was the worst when you wanted to nominate someone. Maybe next time we should get name tags or do the awards a bit later after everyone could talk a bit more with each other. Nevertheless it was quite nice, because everyone was cheering for each other. I even got nominated twice ;^; In Best Rokku Gyaru and Most Unique Style and I am sooooo thankfull for that! I didn't win, of course not because my friends Ina and Sui won in those cathegories, which I think is perfect. I have to admit that it made me feel really happy and more confident too. As a girl from Luxembourg, which seems to be the only Gyaru in that small country (at least active in the community), I always thought that people wouldn't see me. That they thought I'm not worth looking at because of my heritage. It might sound silly but I got so much negative feedback in Luxembourg for my style that it made me feel "unwanted". The meet-up itself and the awards made me realize that I'm part of something really big and I am happy where I am now. I am happy with who I am now and with the friends I have. It just feels right, which is the reason why I want to meet as many of my friends as possible and as often as possible too. I mean look at me and my friends, we were so happy on that day:




These are only a few of the pictures I took or friends of me took of us. I didn't want to put too many in here but I love every each one and saved every picture I could find. It makes me so happy to look at them and remember the great time together. When I saw the pictures friends of me took, I had to laugh. I mean look for yourself:

I swear, this is NOT the only picture where I make a silly face, more to come. After we finished the schedule at the venue, we went to a karaoke bar and later we went clubbing all together. It was sooooo much fun! I always love that part so much. Let the pictures talk for themselfs~

Kukki and me having way~ too much fun!
picture by Lau, stupid me...
Oh man... you get now what I mean? Lately it is so hard to find a good picture of myself from other people. I have the talent to pull a stupid face every freaking time.

clubbing group picture!
Well well well, we all went home the day after and we were all so happy and we still are. 

Thanks to Kitai and Kyo for organising the meet-up, the staff for helping and all the people who came. Hope to see you all next year!

Last but not least, our fabulous huge group picture!


Thank you all!

Harry Potter the Exhibition

Hi everyone,
I went to the Harry Potter exhibition in Cologne yesterday with my friends Kukki and Kim. The Exhibition is currently at the Odysseum in Cologne and it only shows part of the costumes and things used on the filmsets. It's definitly worth seeing if you are a Potterhead as I am. I was so happy to finally go there. I remember that the exhibition opened in Tokyo after I left and I was really sad about it. So now I could see it close to where I live.

I won't write that much about it, posting more pictures for you. I just want to tell you, if you can, go on a normal weekday. We went on a saturday and there were so many people there. You should get tickets in advance and you will be able to choose the time you want to enter, but we entered half an hour late and half an hour later we could finally go inside the exhibition itself. Before you can enter the exhibition itself, you will be able to take a picture with wands in front of a green screen where one picture costs 18€. We took one, but didn't buy it in the end. The exhibition starts with the sorting hat, who will choose some people and sort them into a house. After that you will see a little movie (which was hella pixelated on the screens which made me mad) and then you will enter through the Hogsmeade station, standing in front of the Hogwarts Express.


The exhibition itself isn't that big, but really nice and I found it so interesting to see. We had so much fun there that we were sad when we were at the end of it. We even thought about going through the whole exhibition again and the staff standing at the exit just looked at us and shook his head with a smile. I guess he's used to Potterheads by now.

Here are the pictures, click on them to see them in full size!



This was so funny. Kim, Kukki and I, all the three of us, pulled the Mandrake's out and they screamed so loud that we were shocked. Even the people around us were shocked and turned around looking madly at us. I'm sorry but that was just like in the book when the whole class pulled them out and Neville fainted. Hah~ Potterheads forever.

The exhibition wasn't really in the order of the movies but it was so nicely made with all the details. The black forest part even smelled like forest. The dementor hanging up the wall was freaking scary and the Dark Mark on the wall was perfect for the Death Eaters and the Voldemort corner.



 


All the creatures looked so scary but so well done.
I'm not scared by spiders but Aragog seriously gave me the creeps.



I still believe my letter got lost by a stupid owl.
Can you tell how happy I was?








Okay this is quite important for me! I nearly freaked out when I saw it. This is a book about the Quidditch World Cup and on the left, the second country is Luxembourg. This made me so happy that I queaked and my friends were laughing at me for doing it. But you know why I was so happy? It may be silly, I know, but Luxembourg gets ignored so often in movies and books and nearly everything. J.K. Rowling didn't ignore it, she even made it part of her story. I remember when I read it in the 4th book. I had to re-read it to make sure I didn't make a mistake. Run down the stairs to show my parents and I was laughing so much and yelling "OMG that means we are part of the wizard world!" I was still under the age of 11 when I read it, guess all you Potterheads now understand why I freaked out. There was even a flag of the world cup with the countries on it.


Maybe you can tell from the pictures that I was really into the graphics and layouts. I love the work of the designers. When I could I'd buy a couple of books or posters from the movie with the original designs. I hope I can get my hands on some of the things when I go to see the Studio Tour in London. Yep that's already planned now too. Going with Kim and my roomie Caro in february. Yai for more Harry Potter and yai for seeing London and maybe some friends too!

Pygmy Puffs!

The last part of the exhibition was the shop. Well... I will be honest with you. I was so looking forward to all of the merch and goods you could buy there. I saved money for it but when we entered the shop and walked a bit through, we realized that they had the same stuff all around that big shop and only boring stuff. They didn't even have the Marauder's Map or all of the wands. They had ugly cups, ugly magnets and candy for way too high prices. The only thing Kukki and I bought were the Pygmy Puffs because it was a more special merch than the rest. I will definitly spend a lot money in London from what I heard about the shop there. Thank you Kukki for letting me know and for not spoilering me too much!


Last but not least a picture of happy Kukki and me with our new babies. The whole exhibition itself made me so happy and I remembered a lot from the books and the movies. It kind of felt like we were the only ones in there being that happy about it. A lot of people with children were there and a lot of people looked at us as if we were aliens with our Slytherin scarves, Kukki with her Deathly Hallows shirt and me with my leggings. Or maybe they never saw a girl with purple hair and platform shoes before, might be it.

Hope you liked this post and tell me if you are a Potter head as much as we are!
