So Actual Real Life Haruka Tenoh and I went to Düsseldorf over the weekend for Japantag! And we wear mostly focused on the Japanese food, haha. After flying on Friday we had excellent ramen at My Noodlehouse.
On Saturday, we had breakfast at Bakery My Heart, which was super yummy.
We did see Venus, Jupiter, Serenity, Pluto (with her boyfriend and I was like “not authentic”) and some attempts on Moon – I say attempts because I saw one with actual yellow wool in her brown hair (I was freaked out but ARLHT told me at most cons there’s like one girl with a wool-cosplay). (Yes, treat cosplay like canon but. Just do a brown-haired Moon, no one would mind. Just saying.) We did see exquisite cosplays of Luna and Kakyuu tho, I very much liked those.
And no, I wasn’t cosplaying because we not only faced hot hot heat, but also terrible rain, stormy winds and even hail. After sushi lunch at Maruyasu we escaped to our hotel room at the Japanese hotel Nikko to cuddle. We went back for frozen yoghurt at Sugarbird Cupcakes and shaved ice (just like Anthy’s <33), also to buy ARLHT a perfect new shirt and look at the shoes at Office London.
On Sunday it was even more rainy and stormy and we went out to walk along the Rhein towards the Japanese Garden, which was set up in 1975 and looks super beautiful.
We were happy to have nice, nice sun when we got back on Sunday eve. We even saw two B-list celebrities at the airport (Panagiota Petridou and Rach der Restauranttester), haha!
