December is the busiest month in a year. It is. I have to meet people, go somewhere, do assignments, and cosplay. If someone asks me, how was this year like?, I must say…well, it was so tough. Good things happened, but bad things as well. That is what the life is all about. Wherever I go, no matter what happens, the place I can come back is here. When I log in, I can meet you. That is why I could keep this blog until now. I didn’t think I could blog for so long now. Because there are people like you, people who follow my blog. Thank you very much. ありがとうございます＾＾
This month is crazy because I have three cosplay events to join. Lots of preparation! I am not sure how long I will be able to cosplay. Well maybe next year I will do, but after that I don’t know. Cosplay is good because I can forget everything while I cosplay. And I can feel I am in the work (anime, manga, or whatever). I would have to find a next hobby after I finished being a cosplayer. Because some of my cosplay friends have stopped and started to find another purpose in their lives.
Life is short. If you are still a teenager, you can fool around as you like. But time flies. Soon you will be around my age because time goes by so fast after you turn 20. So if you have something you want to do, please do so. If you do, you are a winner. In other words, anyone can be a winner even if you fail to succeed. While you hestitate, time goes by ruthlessly…
Life is ephemeral. When I think about something like this, I feel like cosplaying Japanese costumes like a kimono or a yukata. Somehow, those costumes make me feel setsunai[sentimental and nostalgic]. I don’t know why, though. This is Japanese virtue, wabisabi[侘寂]? I am Japanese, and I do like Japanese traditional costumes while I also like Western-style.
Last Sunday I joined the cosplay event. The venue was an old-fashioned amusement park named Hana-yashiki[花やしき] in Asakusa[浅草], Tokyo. This place goes so well with any characters who wear kimono, yukata, or the likes that there were such cosplayers here and there.
I cosplayed two characters there. One is Oono Suefumi from Harukanaru toki no nakade-Maihitoyo-, and the other is Lelouch from Sound Episode 2. And as an extra cosplay, I wore a yukata. Fundoshi is…maybe someday!

いつの間にか大きくなっても 僕よりうんと 幸せがいい
いない時も 頑張れたことが 今になって 自信になって
いつからずっと 強くて弱いの 君は知ってて 同じ空 見てくれてたの
夏の終わり 夏の終わりには ただ貴方に逢いたくなるの
