I am gonna be so glad when Nashi-con is over. I love it, but OMG, crunch time SUCKS. I still have a few things left to do for the dance. At least the PVs are all edited, but I still have to arrange the songs. I have to make sure the double-play artists are separated well enough too. Since STAR RIDER kicks off the dance, it'll be easier for KAT-TUN stuff, but I still want to sneak FINALE into the first hour, so Lock On probably won't get played til the middle of the second hour.
Then there's the KAT-TUN panel. OMG, I haven't even started on it x.x I wanted to try and find clips from the newer shows, but I haven't had the chance. Not to mention the newest solo videos of anything are still relatively old...poor Junno's is from 2010. Maru's is the most recent, since it's Step by Step. Koki...I'll probably have to use his One on One performance from the NMP concert. I can't play any of his newer songs...because Koki's songs are not PG. XD Ueda...I have no idea what I'm doing for him. Kame...I might just play the clip from NMP of Lost my Way, and then let the Nakamaru Clinic play XD Not much singing, but the skit's pretty funny, and I can play the one from the Taiwan concert too. But yeah, the panel is on April 1st, so any clips I can find of them trolling each other would be great. I just wish I had more than an hour for this thing x.x
Oh yeah, I suppose as trivia I can add that the kanji for "Nashi" (Asian pear) that we use for Nashi-con is the same kanji that's in "Kamenashi".
The dance costume, which at this point will be my only costume for Nashi-con probably, is coming along...I suppose. I still haven't quite gotten the color I want for the kimono though. I'll mess with the dyes more tomorrow. I need it to be a lot darker of a purple than it currently is now though. I might need to throw in some blue, or even black, since it's tie-dyed. It's supposed to look like the Milky Way, since it'll have a star theme, just like the dance (also part of the reason I'm kicking off the dance with Star Rider). I also need to finish the inner part of the outfit, since the kimono I'm working on now is just the outer part.
This whole costume, funny enough, came about when I saw Kame's costume during his Kizuna performance from one of the earlier concerts (2006 maybe?). It was this purple and silver sparkly-sequined kimono-esque thing, and I thought it was so pretty. Eventually I thought doing a similar long-sleeved kimono dance outfit would be fun. I decided to make it space-themed because I like stars, plus I would have an excuse to make it silver and purple and covered in glitter.
Anyways, that's enough about what I've been up to at any rate. I'm thinking I'm getting a little overwhelmed, mentally, from all this stuff...so tomorrow I'll take a two or so hour break to watch a few episodes of Kamen Rider. I've been meaning to re-watch Kuuga, and I think it'll be a good stress relief.
