My favorite month in a few more days!

Chiwassu!

August ended in a blink because I've been running here and there everydayyyyyyyyy
Been doing a lot of background work? So I don't have much new content to upload beside daily selfies because I've been going out a lot instead of shutting myself at home XD
So here comes V's update from my latest blog post~!


My very first collaboration project with local talents, especially YourBuddyMusic team!
We did planning for 2 months but ended up rushing only 2 weeks before we uploaded the music video 😂
I didn't mention much in my pages but this project brought a lot of new experience to me! Beside working with local talents, this is also my very first time covering a national song, first time working for national day andddd this is very shameful but first time buying Batik XD I've always loved batik and kebaya, Indonesia traditional clothes but I've never really got the chance to wear them so this opportunity was simply awesome!

I did mention this a bit in the newspaper interviews and in my pages but I'm very in love with one of the 2 songs that we sang, Tanah Airku. I'm especially in love with the lyric of the second part.

"Walaupun banyak negriku jalani, yang mashyur permai di kata orang
Tetapi kampung dan rumahku, disanalah ku rasa senang
"
No matter how many places that I've been, that are being said as beautiful
My home is where I feel happy

Well......I'm a hikikomori so I love my home, or to be exact my room, and more specifically my bed but the lyric touches me more than that XD
I think this song suits me very much, though I'm not trying to boast but as someone who travels a lot, Medan is my home for people I love are here XD
So yes I think this song is very much made (?) for me 😂

Costest as Aya-chan~!

The very first 2 selfies in this post were taken when I received my Aya-chan headphone XD
Aya-chan is the mascot of Little Akihabara, upcoming event in Medan where I'm being featured as one of the guests!
Although I'm not going to cosplay as Aya-chan during the event, I'm super duper excited for it, and it's the main reason why I've been running here and there lately!

First time wearing Aya-chan cos during a small local event~!

There was a small local event like 3 weeks ago? It was a totally impromptu decision, so it was more like a meeting up with friends!

Surrounded by two cute Kira-s XD

Thank you for the photo <3

My dear awesome violinist <3

And more precious friends~!

And then I hijacked (?) a maid-cafe audition (?)

Random blond hair (fake?) customer 😂

Andddddd dinner with friends~!

In a way (?) whether i'm with wig or not, my pink hair makes me look like I'm still cosplaying 😂

Random weekday look~

I did go out for a few meetings, family gathering and shopping but I'm mainly preparing for Little Akihabara~

Quality Check of my debut album, VIVID GIRL!

At last, I'll be releasing the physical CD version, which is more of a COLLECTOR version of VIVID GIRL during Little Akihabara!

And then another meeting for a 'may-happen' upcoming event XD

And then another QC 😂

Like last year, I'll be making desk calendar again!
I realized that as I do a lot of meeting at day time, I'm almost not at home to make video or costest so yea, it's one of the reasons why my YouTube is not being updated >.<
Butttt I realized that as I don't make video or no video deadline to chase, I have more free time at night. And I use that time to build 😂

And Koma-san that I received as a gift back in May <3

Then I had a very quick promotional shoot with Little Akihabara banner at K3 mart

Little Akihabara ticket pre-sales is available at K3 marts in Medan~!

And went on building Akatsuki Shiranui and 1/100 Barbatosss

Now I understand why my friend didn't recommend me to get shiny gunpla 😂
It's harder to cut cleanly than clear version gunpla 😂
But it looks so nice from afar >///< so I'm half happy that it looks so nice but sad that if I look at it closely, there are scratches 😂

I thought I'd stop after building my two HG gunplas (Fumina and Akatsuki) because as I opened my 1/100 Barbatos box, I was discouraged due to the a lotttt of parts but I told myself that I won't be able to get new gunpla if I don't finish my stock 😂 I also have deadline for my hobbies 😂 (?) but after I start building, I didn't regret it at all because Barbatos is after all easy to build (fyi this is my third Barbatos XD) and it's so handsome when it's done <3

By the way, I really do have deadline for my hobbies and what are pilling up now are my novels and anime..well anime is never-ending 😂

Did a veryyyy quick wig-test

Because I'll be cosplaying as Inori again very soon >w<

First experience!!!

I haven't officially announce my upcoming merchandise but beside desk calendar and VIVID GIRL, I'll be selling posters and 4x6" photos and Love Live photobook and! something I tried making by myself! something made by someone who doesn't have Photoshop and used Microsoft Words 😂! I'm releasing my very first WALL CALENDAR!!

I'm actually holding a collaboration giveaway with Little Akihabara where my WALL CALENDAR is one of the gifts. My WALL CALENDAR will be in limited stock as well, because the production cost is way higher than the rest...
I forgot to mention that my giveaway is open to whole Indonesia and not just limited to Medan. I know there are people who got the wrong idea because one of the presents are tickets to Little Akihabara >< in any case, yoroshiku!


After monthly facial routine at Alter Age Clinic

Another meeting look

Ah I've been going to studio recording too! If everything goes well, I'll be releasing new stuff again by the end of the year ><
Andddd I think it's noticeable that my bangs is freaking long? 😂 well, been almost a month since I last cut it and my hairstylist gave me the suggestion of try to grow it sideway this time....well the only person who I leave my haircut to is my stylist (and myself haha) so I won't have front bangs for a while 😂

And the last gunpla in my list is Kimarissssss

I'm so glad that Kimaris wasn't hard to build too 😂
I have bad experience with MG model 😂
Now that I don't have gunpla to build anymore, it means that I can get new ones 😂 I already have 2 in my mind but I hope I won't be too itchy hand to get them at once 😂

Because I've been going out for meeting, I've been using makeup almost everyday..

Not sure which of my lifestyle is better 😂
Lately I'm using light makeup everyday for meeting
But before, I'm using makeup only like 2-4 times in a week, with at most twice being thick-makeup (for cosplay or video recording)
I've been doing face care such as using natural carrot oil and face mask but after all the tough part is always at sleeping early and monthly facial 😂

Hijacked (?) my cousin's house before going to watch Gintama live action~!

Managed to fit in 'watching movie' in my schedule XD
I'm very happy that Hijikata and Katsura are as handsome as the anime and manga but after watching 300+ episodes of anime, I can't get used to Shun Oguri and Kanna Hashimoto as Gintoki and Kagura 😂 I'm not saying that they don't suit the movie for their acting is good but I can't get rid of Sugita and Kugimiya Rie's voice when it comes to Gintoki and Kagura 😂 being a seiyuu fan, it's just hard for me 😂

Woke up earlyyyyyyy to get my hair and makeup done for a collaboration photoshoot XD

During my last post, I wrote that I had a meeting with director of GT studio and the reason is I was given the opportunity to write a song for Medan's Tokusatsu series; Metal Knight

Collaboration photoshoot with Metal Knight

Thank you very much to GT Studio team!

I uploaded less than 30secs of the song in one of the videos last week! The video is a spoiler to my merchandise for Little Akihabara and at the same time, I'll be singing the song I wrote for Metal Knight during the event as well! I hope everyone will enjoy it! <3

And I received a very nice drawing <3 thank you

The only update in my YouTube (?)

After months of promising, at last my ViViD Girl video is available via iTunes! while the preview video is in my YouTube channel!
The video was definitely taken in my room, in a way to exaggerate that it's the song that describes who V Kanon is :D
Please check it out to know more about me XD

Another very quick costest for Little Akihabara cosplan

Still have to work on styling the wig and I had the same problem with Saber; how to take selfie in ponytail when the tail is right behind 😂
This cosplan is another reason why I'm super duper excited for Little Akihabara~! Honestly speaking, the speed of my adding characters to my cosplan is getting really slow but at the same time, I would like to keep on trying new cosplay style that I've never done before and this would be one of it! May be it's really because of the hairstyle that no one recognizes this character? but I kinda had feel for this character from sometime ago plus the series means a lot to me! So i hope everyone will like it as much as I do! >w<

V's look less than 12 hrs ago 😂

One of the reasons why I decided to blog, though I really don't have much to say beside 'I'm busy for my merchandise' and not much info on the production (video recording, photoshoot or song making) side is because I'm going off for a trip, which means that if I don't write now, it'll add up to my next posts, which I believe will be more than 1 post as well plus definitely another post regarding Little Akihabara so yeah, I don't want to pile up too much backlog 😂

From the time I came back from Singapore, I really started to feel that my all-time-new-year-resolution of 'being busy is a good thing' is coming true and of course I'm enjoying it a lot! 
Even people around me are quite surprised like saying 'you are unusually busy' for back then, my weekday destination is simply home -> gym -> home 😂 

but I really am working and trying various thing that even though I'm going for a trip, I do have still stuff in my 'to-do' list and I don't think my business will calm down after my 8 days trip (especially Little Akihabara will be 3 days after my return 😂)

I may not be the most active in commenting and replying when it comes to interaction in my pages, nor am I active in uploading 'what's happening now' but I'd like everyone to know that I do check every single comments and shares and replies and mentions 
(I barely even update my personal FB account nor say much what's in my mind..)

Definitely there are negative feedback, in both nice or rude ways and I do get strength as well as discouragement from there

I don't say this often but I'm really thankful to everyone who keep an eye on me
Thank you
