Received some good material today~~~
'nuff said. Thanks to the websites shown on the pic, we got the chance to have a real DeLorean at Paris Manga. I had to do it.
The 3 lasts pics somewhere between not crappy and sort of good
About the last one….
My friend said I was going too far with maya’s mouth fullness. So I pursed my lips. Not without saying very loudly:
"SURE HE HAS A BIG ONE! THAT BIG, JUST LIKE A BLACK MAN!"
Can’t wait for a MAD_adnap’s photoshoot~ it was so fun last time!
(sorry for the blurry pics. More to come… maybe.)
Paris Manga 2014 was kinda fun. It started badly though. Haven’t found any acquaintance, and nobody recognizing me. Except my boss who came with his son. Great.
Until I noticed a giant lollipop, hold by a girl who started giggling “mayaaaa♥” She got a warm hug from me and we spend the whole time together. We found a Jack frost and the classy maya gave in to release my inside fangirls and I HAD to get a pic with her/him ❅❅❅
We found Pompelmo I follow on Tumblr. She’s really sweet!
I love how cosplay helps you to find other fans!
[Interview] LM.C’s first single in about a year is a dark tune full of fantasy (part 1)
LM.C has released their new single, “My Favorite Monster,” which utilizes electronic dance music. They are also garnering attention for the clear differences between maya and Aiji’s appearances. "It’s a song packed full of what our current selves can do. It’s as if we’ve become adults, and I mean that in a good way," says Aiji about the new song. They also announced that they have a new album near completion and that they will be going on a nationwide tour. According to maya, "Our works are like a new toy we can play with at concerts." It will be impossible to take your eyes off their free and uncontrolled activities in 2014 as well.
■We’ve had seven years to build up LM.C’s point-of-view and characteristics, so the theme of this song is “to shake free.”■
──”My Favorite Monster” is your first new single in about a year. It’s a song that has turned in the direction of dance music.
maya: The actual song already existed when we were working on our previous single, “DOUBLE DRAGON.” Putting aside the idea of when we would release them, we recorded about five songs, and “My Favorite Monster” was one of them.
Aiji: At the time, we talked about releasing “My Favorite Monster” instead of “DOUBLE DRAGON.” maya: We did talk about that.
──From the beginning, you thought about doing a song you can dance to, that utilizes step recording?
maya: I don’t know much about dance music. All I really know is that it uses four-on-the-floor with the kick drum. I entrusted the arrangement to Aiji, and I thought I maybe wanted give it more of a current feeling. The atmosphere and the composition of the song haven’t changed from the demo, but when it comes to me, I want to make the guitar more prominent.
Aiji: I arranged the song thinking that I wanted it to have a modern feeling. I wanted the music to be the sort that could make even people who like club music think, “They’re doing something interesting.” For instance, in the interlude, the only sounds are the beat, the sequencer, and a small amount of voices, but we hadn’t used that sort of approach with LM.C until now.
──The song uses various voices, and it has a feeling of playfulness that is appropriate for LM.C.
Aiji: But I think that’s something that we also haven’t done before. We’ve had seven years to build up LM.C’s point-of-view and characteristics, so the theme of this song is “to shake free.” If I’d arranged it like I usually do for LM.C, it would have been more noisy and lively, but instead, I held back where I could. It’s a song packed full of what our current selves can do. It’s as if we’ve become adults, and I mean that in a good way.
──You also ventured to use a dance tune in one of your earlier singles, “SUPER DUPER GALAXY” (2011). It’s grown through your live performances, and now it’s a song that everyone dances to and enjoys. This time, you’re also going in the direction of EDM, but is it because you thought, “we can do this kind of thing too”?
Aiji: Exactly. This characteristics of this song are catchy, but it’s definitely not a pop song. Rather than wanting people to listen to the melody, we wanted them to listen to the beat and pay attention to the atmosphere and more of the sound of the song overall. The lyrics to the chorus also feature catchy words like “BANG!!” and “PUNK!!” Maybe our approach to this song was similar to that of our song “BOOST BUSTERz” (2007). That song is a little catchier and it also has a polished feeling.
──I thought that the intro sounded like a movie theme. Or perhaps I should say it’s a song that brings an image to mind.
Aiji: I always make music keeping an image in mind. This song makes me think of a kind of hard-boiled Hollywood movie.
──The lyrics are about a mischievous, funky monster living in one’s head, which is appropriate for LM.C.
maya: Yeah. There are new elements to this song that we haven’t used before, but I was told, “The lyrics sound like LM.C,” and even though I wasn’t conscious of it, that’s how they turned out. I use a monster to represent the various facets that are part of each person, and then I decided how to express that common theme in a way that fit LM.C. The end of the song says, “If you hesitate, then ‘Ah!’ your life will end in a flash!” but what I want to say is the same as always. Which is that we all only have one life to live, so isn’t it better to live it happily? We have various problems, like the gap between reality and our ideal, but you shouldn’t get lost because of that.
Aiji: I think the lyrics are maya-like. His choice of words is, as always, interesting.
──The lyric “PUNK!! As much nonsense as you’d like. Whether or not you call for PEACE!! Jump out, voila!” is amazing.
maya: That’s from “The Genie Family” (laughs). (An anime that was broadcast in 1969, in which a genie appears from a bottle whenever someone sneezes).
Aiji: I wonder if anyone will realize it’s from “The Genie Family.” (laughs)
──I know that there’s a free and uncontrolled monster living inside maya’s head, but what about you, Aiji?
Aiji: ……I think……there is. (laughs) At my age, maybe the monster will just burst out completely. (laughs)
maya: The lyrics are a little bit of an exaggeration, but I’m singing about when, at unexpected times, emotions surpass reason and sense. So I think that everyone has a monster inside them.
──An out-of-control monster that you can’t hate. People should also check out the music video. It’s a sharp and cool video, and fans can see maya dance. It’s also fun when people’s depictions of monsters submitted to your homepage from all over the world appear in the video.
maya: It’s the kind of music video we haven’t done much before.

Thanks to the ones who advised me on circle lenses. I finally found the model I need on Pinky Paradise -after searching for some hours on several websites-.
I’ll go for Geo Starmish in brown!
I need help from LM.C cosplayers and circle lense users here!
Here’s the story. I had a bad experience with colored contact lenses years ago, but I always wanted to try again
because these fuckers were pretty shitty.
I am making my second LM.C maya cosplay (CHEMICAL KING TWOON style, see ref picture above), and I really want to wear circle lens as my make-up seems unfinished and less accurate without these
and I look stoned. I have wide eyes but small dark brown iris.
I know nothing about reliables websites and best brands, about curve and which diameter should be the best.
I found this one. It seems good. But I have no idea of how it would look on me and if the website is reputable.
Maybe one of you have a better model to recommand?
(Don’t worry, I know basic hygiene and care as I work in a pharmacy.)
Thanks in advance ♥
