Japan Day is a big thing in Düsseldorf every year. Massive crowds of people dressed as their favourite anime / manga characters (or even some characters that don’t fall into that category), good food, fireworks and a lot of fun is to be expected. It’s a highlight on the calendar! But then, going out to Düsseldorf is a highlight on its own. You know how I feel about that city if you’ve been around my blog before.
But I’m getting ahead of myself.
The most of my weekend was spent writing. Yes, I’m still not done, but I’m getting there. If all goes according to plan (and it had better), I should be done by the end of next week at the latest. So then stuff on the blog should go back to normal again, I promise.
I wrote another song for the novel, because I’ve been toying with the idea of a book trailer after a conversation with Liani the other day. Watch this space, the creative juices are sloshing in my mind. We had some rain, drank a lot of coffee, ate some watermelon and got up to the usual shenanigans of a two-year-old.
I’m sad that I didn’t get good photos of the cosplayers, but you can scour the crowds to look for your favourite character. Some of the costumes were amazing. The crowds were just enormous and I get super nervous in crowds, so I didn’t even try to take photos a lot of the time. On a side note, what’s up with the fact that we saw cosplayers dressed as a variety of characters from non-Japanese related stuff, but not one Dragon Age character?! Yes, yes, I know, I need to get over Dragon Age. #thatsnotgoingtohappen
Stuff not pictured here includes starting to watch The Musketeers (what is up with the Doctor playing a bad guy! O_O But I love it!) and finishing The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. I’m still shattered over that book, but I’m planning to do a post on it to explain why.
Right. On to the pictures.
Hope you have an amazing week!
Let me go finish my book. Again. 😛
