SHIBUYA109 GIRLS FESTIVAL 2012!
back in March there was some kind of a competition in 109, where you could take part if you had bought stuff worth more than 5000 Yen. Well I and a friend did so, subscribed on the internet and all. In the end of March I surprisingly got an email telling me that I had won 2 tickets for the event! I had already totaly forgotten about the whole thing, so you can imagine how happy I was! Not only because it was the first time in my life I had won something, haha
So on 12. May 2012 I went to the event with Severine. The bad thing, we didn't know there was already something starting 12 o'clock because on the ticket was written that the dooropening was as 16:30. I was more than just surprised when I saw pics on the Shibuya 109 Shop Facebook page of the opening. I was like "WTF?! SEVERINE!! LET'S GO!!"
Well, nice, the bad thing, neither of us was ready to go yet. In the end I was in Shibuya at 15h, Severine on her way, so I strolled around Shibuya 109 when I so that poster where it was clearly written, dadaaang! OUCH! Therefor I was able to see Anna the Garula Model at the store, but I didn't ask her for a pic.
This was btw my styling that day, not really special :/
In the end we entered Hikarie at 16h. There wasn't really much going on at that time. We lined up in one hall for free Purikura while there was some special talk show going on of some models. We didn't care too much because we were more hyper about the free purikura, haha
This was the machine. They even had some special backgrounds with 109 and stuff you could choose. yay! Of course we had to try that out. I loved the machine! Sadly I haven't seen it anywhere before and according to internet it's not a new one. So no clue if it's still around somewhere in Tokyo. Would be at least nice since I'm a huge fan of the vintage style! ♥
Here's two of the purikura we took. Sadly I wasn't able to get more of them on my phone since I'm not subscribed there (always costs sth D:)
(le bitsch is btw an insider joke you don't have to understand :D)
so at 16:30 was door-opening to the big hall. We somehow were too stupid to understand that we didn't have to line up as other people. We even had number 277 and 278. When we got there, it was already numbers over 600 who could go in. da-daaaang! Second OUCH! Since we had that great numbers we could have been in the first rows. However, shit happens. Still had could sight at everything going on.
It all with a video and one part of the fashion-show. Quite nice to watch. So from here on a picture overload. I just let the pics talk for themselfs. Hope you enjoy! ♥
And then after the the 1. part of the fashion-show, the first surprise... the two girls acting as hosts announced after some talking...
Tsubasa Masuwaka! Surprise surprise! My first thaught was, WOW! My second was "so.. small.." haha :D
Compare her to the other two girls, she really is small ;3
Although I'm not a huge fan of hers I still thaught she's kinda cute. So small, smiley and stuff
There was some kind of competition of young designers. Dunno 100% what it was about since I wasn't fully listening. I was dying because I was soooo thirsty and my feet hurt like hell. That's when the Ghana chocolate saved my life since I got at least sth in my mouth, haha :D
I took at least one pic of the candidates entry. This one didn't win. It was a western style outfit that one a 100'000 yen price! Wow!
So here now again a picture overload! (I don't know anymore which is from the second part and which from the third, so they might be mixed here!)
Between the second and third fashion-show there was a live performance of the singer Alice! I didn't know her before, but I have to admit that she sounded quite nice. Guess I will be searching some of her music on youtube to listen closer to it. Sadly she only performed 2-3 pieces.
That was also the point when my both mobile phones died down. And dumb me, didn't take a camera. That's why many pics from Severines camera were also taken by me. We cannot say which pics she took and which I did take. So we just said we'd share them. So definitely also check out her BLOG!
Well since the fashion-show pics above are all mixed up, I skip the 3rd fashion show part at this point. After the 3rd part followed a special guest concert, KANA NISHINO!! YAY! The main reason why I had wanted to come to this event. I really love her music and style. Although I felt like leaving (I felt like dying since it was hot and I needed sth to drink), I stayed because I definitely didn't want to miss her. Luckily I was able to take some pics with Severines camera before some guys came in the crowd to say it was forbidden. Urgh! They didn't mention it before anywhere.. D: But yah, here my two favorite pics of her 3-song performance:
(Still wanted to upload a video from her show here, but the uploading system sucks right now, I'll try it tomorrow again ;D )
At the start we also got a bag full of coupons for 109 stores. The best one is a 1000.- yen off coupon for any store in 109! I'm surely gonna use that, yay! Also after the event on the street we walked across Nicole, but since we're both looking like crap on the pic we took with her (it was taken in a hurry), I'm not gonna upload it here, sorry. Later on we also saw nemoyayo and (I guess it was her) remi. But since Nicole already didn't seem very happy about us asking for a pic, we didn't ask them. Because we were waiting with them at the lights to cross the street I just told them that the show was amazing and thanked them. Well yah, they were kinda "wtf?" and in a rather pissed mood. Totaly understandable after working that long and then even crappy girls come over to talk to you, haha :D
However, was an amazing event and I was soooo happy that I had won the tickets.
Hope you enjoyed the entry, finally something interesting I could talk about.
And again, check out Severine's BLOG, she will surely also be writing an entry! ♥♥♥
