Anime Midwest Day 2 Saturday - Fitting/Q&A
This was my “slow day” at the con, since I only had stuff to do from 8-1 and had the rest of the day for whatever I wanted.
I woke up an hour earlier than I wanted for the fitting, but I guess earlier is always better than later! I got to chat with the other models and everyone was very nice. Lots of out of state/country?! models, too! Though technically I guess I was also out of state as well ^^
At 8, Kano-san and the interpreter came and brought in 2-3 giant boxes of BTSSB clothes! It was so exciting, so much burando!! Kano-san laid out the outfits and each model was called to be assigned to an outfit. They printed out the pictures we sent in the application, and it had our names/measurements on the bottom. I was number 7, to model (get a load of this friggin’ name though) “Wonder story comes in the rose blooming night ~Alice’s Halloween through the Looking-Glass~” Violetta jumper skirt in the Minty Sax colorway. Honestly I was really, really nervous for weeks about what I would be wearing, if it would have shirring or not, and I was really relieved it did! I can fit into unshirred stuff, but I definitely prefer shirring for comfortableness.
We all finished at about 11, with the BTSSB Q&A starting at 12:30. Or at least this is what I thought…I was casually getting ready and my friend’s girlfriend told me the Q&A was actually at 11:30, not 12:30! It was 11:33 when I was told this, so even though I wasn’t finished getting ready I dashed out of my hotel room! I met up with my friend Kim along the way and we ran to the Q&A together, only 7 minutes late ^^;
The Q&A was really funny! Isobe-san has a very dry sense of humor, while Kano-san seemed shy. Tidbits I can remember off the top of my head:
- There is a high possibility of BTSSB coming back to Chicago/opening up a store is there is enough demand/they did well at AM/people willing to help them find locations and stuff
-Isobe-san was asked “What are your day to day activities for BTSSB?” The person who asked the question was wondering about what he did in regards to work for the company, but instead Isobe-san gave us his daily routine: wake up at 12:00pm noon, go to work at 4:00pm to play with his dog Popo, go home an hour later, eat sashimi and drink sake and watch TV, then go to sleep. We all laughed really hard!
-I think they were both impressed that people in Chicago owned rarer dresses by them!
That’s all I can remember. I dashed out as soon as the panel was done so I could go back to my room and get ready, but I guess both Isobe-san and Kano-san stayed to chat afterwards. Oops.
I had the rest of the day free, so I went with a pretty big group to the mall to get food! That burger was my first real meal the whole weekend, I ate it all in like 2 minutes flat.
Oh! I managed to get a picture with them both (wearing AP…awkward…but jewelry/wristcuffs/otk/parasol were BTSSB!) and I twinned with my friend Caitlin, where I paired my blue OP with white and her sax jsk with black. It was pretty cool! Also pretty funny, because we ended up twinning the same print for the fashion show as well.
That’s all I remember for now! Will do day 3 laters.
