No one ever answered my question as to what "TWG" meant, probably the "T" stands for T as for the remaining letters let's leave that to your imaginations.
Value, Ambiance, FOod
Quite easy to see how I liked the tea here, as well as the golden place. It had glass and shining metal everywhere. Now as to why that man was looking into the camera and actually posing? We would never, ever know.
Izayoi from the anime Mondaiji-tachi ga Isekai Kara Kuru Sō Desu yo? or translated in english, "Problem Children are Coming in from Another World, Aren't they?"
Let's have our facts first:
2pm— became 5pm, and 5pm became 6pm as finally the event started. Started, as in we were finally allowed inside the tent that held a stage, lots of chairs for audiences and about 7 to 8 booths at most.
The venue was accessible, there were a lot of food choices, and some of the event organizers were really nice. The international guests couldn’t be grander. And the exhibitors were what you'd expect in normal conventions. There were cute little trinkets, some wigs and even a milk tea stand that didn't rip you off.
So all was well? NO.
As already stated, it started quite late. Aside from that, they weren’t that organized. The chocolate fountain was only available at about 8pm or so. And the activities were incomplete. There’s also the whole ticketing system— there is nearly no difference between photographer, regular goers and VIP’s.
There was also a HUGE LACK of the food, chocolate fountain, wine and tea as well as the mini events they had supposedly planned for their guests. Everyone just had shoots of their own and kept to themselves. It was only at the end that everyone finally gathered to the main tent when the international guests were interviewed.
My biggest complaint:
Anyway, I went there for the DRAWING CONTEST. Which never happened, I registered online, and waited and asked, and asked, and asked when it would start up until 9pm, I had my drawing materials ready with me – and then they finally told me that no one else had registered. I brought art materials. My beloved sets of pencils and sakura poster paints all wrapped up and placed in a canister just for the sake of it.
What usually happens when an event has no registrants?
Or at the least, you told me beforehand that there was no longer a chance that they would continue. They had a way to know this. They also had a way to ADVERTISE it. What happened was they CANCELLED the event. Just flat out forgot about it.
They obviously advertised the guests and their meet and greet, as well as the merchandise— why not THAT event.
So what now?
I am never going back to that place for any type of event. It's full of restaurants, and the venue ain't worth the money. And if the event is something new? I will not dare waste time and go. What's more is I will never go (if they do have another for next year) to Amore A Venezia ever again.
So far, I've done:
And warning, this post is IMAGE HEAVY.
Asuna Yuuki Sword Art Online
It seemed that fate in itself did not want me to go to Fantasy Quest 2, my actual plan for that event was "Esther Blanchette" in her Queen outfit. But the friend we bought wigs from had disappeared due to depression. And I ended up changing my plans despite already having the costume in progress.
Sword art online before the fandom
I started reading the novel a month before the series was launched, and because of this-- a lot of people were surprised to already see an Asuna Yuuki cosplay. Am pretty sure I really didn't do her well, but I always plan to improve. During the process of making the costume, I had quite the constrained budget. (As I've spent a LOT on the previous cancelled cosplan already) And even the wig I got did not make it on time. SO I had to style another wig the night before the event itself. XD
I at some point, wanted to give up. But I didn't want to spoil such a great event and we don't get many chances to shoot at a venue like that. So push comes to shove, I had to pull through no matter what I had to do.
Mondaiji-tachi ga Isekai kara Kuru Sou Desu yo is an EXTREMELY long title.
Though these kinds of really, really long titles started out way last year with a Sis-con themed anime. I blame it for all these other seriously long titles.
Animation, Story, OST
Not really too fond of the soundtrack, and nothing upstanding about the sound effects or songs they use. It's ok to average. The animation is pretty good. Though it's not exactly as eye candy as Guilty crown.
The Story isn't anything new, we have Izayoi the main protagonist who has godly powers. And he gets sucked into an unknown world together with two girls who also have powers. The character style is easy to like, nothing to weird or unique to have to get used to her folks.
Continue or Drop
I would have to say I almost did drop it. Felt like one of those service animations that had nothing in it but just one guy and a lot of girls who rely on him. But as much as the main character is cliched, it has the homey feeling of something you're already familiar with.
Am not sure how they would make it any more interesting, but for now-- I will continue to watch this and find out what mystery lies beyond the main character who seems too damned strong even for the so-called "Demon Lords"
Ever blurted out loud, that you were a "camwhore"?
Don't worry I did too, and am pretty sure we were even sort of proud of it.
Although, the meaning has evolved into something more apt/proper to how it's used. It was based on actually being paid to do slutty things via the internet. So yeah, it would be best to avoid it. As not all cultures share the same urban meanings, or rather, the more modern meanings.
For a time, I was thinking of concepts for glasses that adjusted the way the wearer sees the environment.
Although my concept was way more intense. With levels and curve adjustments for a few of us who are OC about the surroundings, (And for those hardcore gamers who enjoy their regular dose of eye candy) the Gunnar is a dream come true.
The picture below is myself, sporting a borrowed pair of the back frame version. It's very sleek, and hugs the face just right. And quite actually it's pretty light. You'd hardly feel it on your face. It also doesn't look half bad. But I wouldn't recommend it as a replacement for your graded glasses.
I'm not a huge fan of tinted glasses for normal wear. But the overall effect is more than enough.
