Usai in Japan 2013 - Akihabara

Hello my cute mauw-mauws,

during our last days in Japan we finally visited Akihabara, the famous Manga/Electonic neighbourhood of Tokyo. Especially Mochi couldn't wait to enter the flashy world of Akihabara. To my surprise, Akihabara looked pretty much alike I had imagined it in beforehand: many people, maids on the street and manga characters are greeting you on each corner - stunning.

Maids try to promote their maid cafe

Tales of Symphonia - promoting for the upcoming "special edition" of part 1 and part 2

Because ist was once again sticky hot we seeked refuge in one of the numerous Sega game halls. I think we spent more time than we actually planned inside the halls.

Mario Kart Arcade caught Mochi's and my attention

Thereafter, Mochi and Don enjoyed a round or two of Zombie shooting

We also enjoyed playing Tekken, a drum game and I'd even made some puris. It was one of this "bigger eyes" machines and well.. I really do look like a creepy manga character.. maybe I will show you the puris sometime..
Thereafter we strolled through the streets of Akihabara and we even entered a sort of sex/hentai shop by accident. Actually we entered the shop because the maid dresses in front of the store looked so cute and as we were inside the store we discovered the really creative world of LOVE of the japanese. To be honest, Don, Mochi and I were pretty impressed but sometimes also kinda confused of the wide range of items there. Hahaa~ ^__^6 Well, after this accident, we entered one big Manga-Merchandise store after another and especially Mochi spent a lot of money and had a lot to heft:

This are Mochi's purchases only after leaving on of the first merchandise stores on that day.. there were still a lot more to come.. XD

If you love Manga and japanese Popculture you need to make a break in Akihabara - if there is anyway a manga world than it is in Akihabara. Next time I really want to visit a Maid Cafe.. no matter what the boys think about it then.. >__> X'D

My Cosplays - 10th - Lillymon from Digimon

Hello my lovely mauw-mauws,

this days Im pretty busy but nevertheless I want to keep blogging regularly somehow. Because it's been a while since my last "My Cosplays"-post, here we go with No. 10: Lillymon.

Lillymon Cosplay – Profile:
Cosplay No.:10
Created in: 2013
Costs: about 35€
Hours to make: 8h
Weared at: Connichi 2013 (Saturday), DoKomi 2014 (Saturday)

Why do I wanted to cosplay Lillymon?
I'm still a huge fan of the first and second series of Digimon and Lillymon is my absolute favourite Digimon since then. A shame, that she hadn't more appearances and anyhow I think she deserves much more attention and love and so I needed to Cosplay Lillymon.

Any unforgettable experiences ?
None special that far. Except the fact that wearing a wig and a hat when the outside temperature is 30 degrees over zero is not that recommendable (Dokomi 2014). ^__^6
