Linocuts, cute maiko-san, the geigi of Atami, and other things I like!

Hi! Just letting you know the Sailor Moon brooch I won from your giveaway arrived. It's soooo pretty :3 Thank you so much! x

Hooray! I’m glad it got to you intact!

I’m headed to Kyoto and Osaka this weekend. There might be some covert (or not so covert) cosplay going on.

I’m happy to have a chance to use my Vivi magazine Sailor Moon leather pouch. It’s nice for a freebie, but I’m worried about the screen printing holding up.

Yesterday, a kid flipped out so bad when she saw my ‘La Reconquista’ musical pamphlet. 
I ended up giving her one of the postcards. She had misty eyes of hysterical joy.
Literally, in all my years of teaching in Japan, I’ve never had a kid lose their marbles like that over Sailor Moon. 
I think I have a new BFF.

kuriozgirl asked:

Hi! I want to ask you where you got the little Sailor Moon jewelry cases! Because I want one! I'm practically squealing at the site!

Good morning!

If you live in Japan, they’re both available only through Premium Bandai directly. It’s cost upon delivery, which is nice I pre-ordered mine right after their production was announced in November.
Here’s the crystal compact. http://p-bandai.jp/item/item-1000085814
And the cosmic compact. http://p-bandai.jp/item/item-1000085815/

I’m not sure how to order them if you live outside of Japan, though. I’m sorry. Maybe there are some re-sellers or if you know someone in Japan you can trust…?

Here is the finished version of the Sailor Moon Crystal anime promo. The idea for the redraw came from the tumblr blog, crystalfacets. I was not originally planning to color this, but somehow I ended up coloring it anyway. ^^;; There was a lot of fiddling around with the image, and while I can’t say I’m 100% happy with it, I did give it my best shot.It’s no secret that Chibi Usa is my favorite female Sailor Moon character, and I always wished we’d gotten more images or info on her Pink Moon Crystal, so I chose to draw her with her Pink Moon Crystal in this picture. In the original promo image Sailor Moon has a wide-eyed look as she holds up the Silver Crystal, as if she’s gazing at the crystal in awe and wonder. This makes sense, since in the first arc Usagi is inexperienced and does not know the extent of her crystal’s power. But adult!Chibi Usa would be an experienced, full fledged senshi by the time she’s in possession of her own Pink Moon Crystal, so I gave her a more assertive expression as she’s about to unleash its power.

I work as a teacher in Japan. Today was the first day of the new school year in my area. I dressed up for the occasion, and did a little covert cosplay. I wore these accessories with a silky cream top that has puffy sleeves.

A student hanging around the teachers’ room commented that I looked like a princess. I got alittle too excited, and asked her who she thought I looked like.

She chirped with glee “Kate!!” and skipped off. I was heartbroken. Of course. What was I thinking? Even the oldest of my students were in kindergarten when PGSM went off the air…. ( i _ i )

Told you I was ready for Tokyo!
