DongDaemun is cosplayers heaven no objections!

25 August

Me and Hasen have been always wanting to go on an outing together
Because we both was so busy, we had to keep delaying it.
But today we finally decided to go to dongaemun and otaku heaven searching in korea!  ( ´∀`)

Okay, It was my idea to go to dongdaemun fabric market just because I wanted to find some cloth for my future plans. Lucky hasen was around to help me translate my korean with the seller. 

キタ━━━ヽ(∀゚ )人(゚∀゚)人( ゚∀)人(∀゚ )人(゚∀゚)人( ゚∀)ノ━━━ !!!

Its very very much a cosplayer heaven in korea! 
There is so many choices and shops and one could really get lost in a labyrinth of fabrics @w@ |||

different floors sell different stuff, you can get diy necklace goods on the highest floor and then zippers/ lace/ furr etc. on the lowest. 
They are so friggin blessed ! So many cloth can do so many nice characters and props!!!  

but because there is soooo many choices, one would get confused on what they really want (´ヘ`;)

Anyway buying some fabric in dongdaemun fabric market! 

After that, We had lunch at lotteria together oh yeahhh

 hasen nim (she can really eat ! ) ( ; ゚Д゚)

After lunch, we hurried back to dongdaemun because i realized I forgotten to get touyas bag cloth as well as kyouheis bag cloth so that i can modify. 
Sadly, most of the fabric shops close by 3pm =(

So we gave up, 
but she brought me to this famous wig shop in korea (which is also located in dongdaemun) , 
the name is Twins
where most cosplayers in Korea get their wigs from !

The quality is categorized into two different types which is normal and high quality
high quality wigs feels smoother and the price ranges from 30,000 won onwards. 
When you buy the wig, they come with a free trimming and styling service =D
what more is the ajuma and ajushi is very friendly!!!
they treat me to free apple juice Q//w//Q

One thing good about wig shops than internet is that you can compare color in reality =D 
you will not have to worry about the oclor differences of the actual item and the one on the net !

They also accept premade wigs as well. 

Address :
서울시 중구 신당동 773번지 맥스타일 지하2층 21호,22호

 look at all those coscards and pctures given to the ajuma and ajushi XD
 the shop name

look its kagami's wig!
 hahahha COUPLE


 free aple juice <3

after that we took the subway all the way to hongik uni station. 
We went to the manga /manhwa shop located at a basement (which is not very far away from the station)
my bad for not taking down the address and taking photos, will update this blog post in the future. 

Most of the mangas here and manhwas here is obviously in korean.
They sell webtoons here published in books and very little doujinshis and official japanese/american art books around. 

Manhwas in korea are authentic....TAKE A LOOK AT THIS BL |D
(cough i kind of snap this secretly cough)
(ok I admit i did not buy the book because....just too lol to process at that moment (;・∀・)) 

 streets in hongik 

 after that we went for some milk tea, 
okay the taste was pretty fine, i still prefer chatime in msia orz

 we got ourselves milk tea hehehhehhhh

 after our milk tea, we decided to part and go home heheheh, it was a fun and tiring day indeed. 
she treated me donuts! she is as sweet as usual 

anyway hauls today!!!!
i got myself two authentic manhwas that were published in korea and in korean so that i can improve my korean as i read hopefully sobs. 
i love fabrics <3
  GUESS WHATS MY NEXT PLAN (ok very obvious lol)

キタ━━━(゚∀゚)━( ゚∀)━(  ゚)━(  )━(  )━(゚  )━(∀゚ )━(゚∀゚)━━━!!

comic world 110 seoul day 1 report and doujin hauls

Cloudy and fucking hot
 (OH NOES IT MIGHT RAIN but whatever i was inside the hall PFFT)
July 27


This time I did not go to seoul alone but my host family instead brought me there.

Because I told them that i wanted to go cw on saturday so that they can cancel whatever plans they have with me hahahha orz

But yeah after some awkward persuading they finally let me off on my own |D;; I seriously cannot imagine myself going to an event with someone that has no interest with the thing i have lol!

Summer is really hot, I actually considered coslaying Jafar for comic world again but I decided not to because I was lazy to put on makeup and carry my stuff there. 
Summer in korea somewhat makes me want to roll on bed more and refuse to get up lol!

 cw this time was held in setec! 
ti oh oh beloho! GOING TO RAIN LIAOOO
hurray for refills on the vending machines =D

During this comic world, because of the release of bw 2 a month ago, the ticket had BW2's kyouhei and mei chan on top!!! I WAS HIGH OVER A FRIGGIN TICKET LOL . 

 entrence into the center

The halls were friggin crowded as usual and the venue was actually smaller than the one in yang jae sobs. 
There were 3 halls. 2 halls for doujinshis and 1 hall for cosplayers. 

The doujin halls were really really hot. 
The only place that I can seriously feel the air conditioning is the cosplayers hall orz. 

 doujin hall 3
cosplayers hall were the comps are held, and where the cosplayers change and register.

HAHHAHAHAHA so yeah I went to stock up all the doujinshis in all the halls one by one >D
As usual there was alot of inazuma 11 doujinshis and recently fate/zero and kuroko no basuke ones around!!!! 
Okay, lucky I not big fan of knb or else pokkai like shit hahaha. 

There was pokemon ones around too!
 demo ne! I only managed to get 1 ISSHUSHIPPY DOUJINSHI!!! 
sobs i le no satisfied. 

Due to the release of bw 2 which happened a month ago, suddenly all the bw cosplayers popped up! 
whenever i see a touya pass by I give them intense stares that I think they are scared of me oops 

there were around 3 touyas around, this is one of the best ones.
 she really gives me the touya feel (*´▽`*)
so cute and quiet that i want to push her

 touko and N! TOUKO SO TALL AND N IS A MALE /legasp! 

 magi cosplayers hahahhaha not much in the event this time, sadly. =(

 i think she is cosplaying a nico nico douga singer but.....she reminds me of molly lol

And well, similiar to yangjae, setec also has a place outside the convention center that the cosplayers can linger to.

 look!!!! that sea of cosplayers!

 nyek nyek nyek ! And i found pisti! (well not pisti anymore since she is cosplaying fate/zero)

We kind of hanged out for....a short while and yeah we had some camwhores together!

So this time I went back early and had some early din dins with my host family.
Overall cw this time was okay,
 but it was so hot and somewhat i end up loosing my lens cover in the event =(


★Tomato festival and lotte world experience★

Oh hey there readers! 
Sorry for not updating my blog in a few months o-am-gee!!!
Well, first off, I will combine my experince in tomato festival and lotte world together and keep it sweet and short.  

Tomato festival :
It first started out as a conversation between a foreign English teacher and me regarding things to do in Korea. As we talk, she mentioned about a tomato festival in Korea, and it kinda caught my curiosity.

And hey! since I usually have nothing to do in the weekends...visiting won't hurt would it ? 
besides, I can eat all the korean traditional road snacks there ! <--main point (?)

At first, I agreed to go with my teacher since i thought my host parents would be leaving me at the dorm for the weekend.
But then my host parents decided to bring me there so I followed my host family instead.

Its overall interesting but very hot (summer what else can one expect?)
Everything in tomato festival is obviously revolves around tomatoes.<<mainly
There are games like break the ice to get the tomato out and tomato pool and diy some bibimbap sauce etc. 
but yeah since its a small village festival, there are korean snacks everywhere to eat! 

The tomato pool takes a long wait hahahha and besides...its mainly kids in the pool |D but sureeeeeeeeee its a nice to place to cool down. 

The tomato festival took place at Gwang Ju Teochon : 

 grand entrence ?
 village festivals are so lively FOOOD 
 bbq in korea how authentic can it get hahah

 me and oma XD
tomato pool hahha
 ajushi pour boxes of tomatoes into the pool while kids step over it and...have fun |D

 festivals with kids alright

Lotte World

I went to lotte world once, that 10 years ago when i was still 8 with my grandparents. 
And 10 years later, little did I know I will be stepping on kimchi land again, and the the same park again. 

All, I can say its a dramatically change within these 10 years.
I went to lotte world right after my exams, which was a week away from comic world with my host family.
And yeah , they have both an indoor park and an outdoor park. 
Well, since its ....so hot, my host familly decided to only buy the indoor park ticket.
There was lots of people in the theme park (well its a sunday after all) 

We only got to ride a few rides. 
One of the rides was pretty absurd.. 
You need to wait for 2 and a half hour >_> 
what the....heck, AND IT WAS NOT EVEN HALF FUN.

but well yeah the sinbad ride, I remember riding it 10 years ago LOL.
Riding it again with my family....yay arabian /me bricked
feels nostalgic that it made me home sick oTL

I feel feeling abit tired that day so I kind of just silently enjoyed it by sitting on a bench pedo-ing at lolis and shotas  watching my "dong saeng" having fun on the rides hahahha. 

 lotte world on top 

 lotteria for lunch!!! BULGOGI BURGER TIEMS 

 two things i love in lotteria, 1st is the small bulgogi burger, 2nd is vanilla milk shake
 le ticket....HEY OMA WHY AM I A JUNIOR!!!!

 and another reason why i remember lotte world quite well, 
its because of the kdrama stairways to heaven (i actually only recognized the triceratops part LOL)

 summer samba snow
