General Convention Discussion / Post your picture of Kamijo!
« on: June 07, 2006, 11:14:30 PM »
They were trying to keep the signing event focused on the CDs and magazines that were for sale.  There are obvious promotional reasons for that, of course; but I questioned the staff further to find out if it would be only the items available there, or if it would be okay to ask Kamijo to sign other types of official goods, like photosets or old releases which we'd brought.  On Saturday they told me to go to the end of the line and stay there until everyone had gone through, as while it wasn't a problem if a few people asked for other types of ordinary band goods to be signed, they didn't want still-waiting fans to get the idea that anything could be autographed and start asking for weird stuff, like "please sign my chest!"  Sunday seemed much more relaxed.   Lots of fans got back on Sunday's autograph line to have multiple items (like Polaroids and their old CDs) signed.  

I was glad to be at the end of the lines anyway, as band members always seem more relaxed and willing to talk for a little while when there aren't 90 people behind you tapping their feet impatiently.  I'd bought an extra copy of one of the singles just in case, but on Saturday I was able to get a Polaroid signed, and Kamijo even personalized it.  ^_^  The Japanese writing on the left is my name in katakana.

I'm bringing some extra blue roses for fans who weren't able to get their own or didn't know.  I only have 5 extras so I might run out, but please do feel free to ask if you see me on line before the performance.  (I'll be cosplaying Kamijo on Saturday, in the black Tour Metamorphose costume)

And Rapture, don't worry about giving Kamijo the letter!  ^_^  It's customary for fans to give letters when meeting artists at signing events in Japan.  Kamijo is used to it and probably expects to receive some.

Rapture, thanks!  

I think if you can't write in Japanese and would need to use English, Fanime is probably the best time to give Kamijo a letter.   :D   There's likely to be somebody around who can translate it for him at the con.  But also, if you write simply, like the kind of basic grammar patterns you'd expect to learn in a first-year language class, and keep the sentences short, he could probably read the letter himself.

Yes, I'm inertia from LJ.  I have a Lareine fansite too.  It might be the one with updating issues... >__<;;;

You can get silk flowers at many crafts stores.  Mana cosplayers can probably tell you where to get blue roses in the US; they use them for the "Au Revoir" costume.

I think "favorite flower" means something a little different in this case than what you've been thinking.  The profile did say "favorite" in the original Japanese, and that hasn't changed.  But, for Lareine, the main thing that "favorite flower" means is what flower you should wave at a concert in order to show support for that member.  Whether Emiru really keeps bouquets of pink gerbera in his apartment, we don't know, but if there's a concert happening near his birthday, it's nice for fans to carry pink daisies (instead of the usual sea of blue roses) as a gesture to him.

We don't really give any of them flowers, except for throwing them at the beginning of "Saikai no Hana."  Kamijo often takes them from us during concerts, though.  I would imagine he's received/taken hundreds of them over the years.  o_o  

On the other hand, if you can figure out a way to give Kamijo a real blue rose, I'm sure he'd be impressed.  That would be really rare!  But lately, the answer Kamijo has been giving when he's asked in interviews, "what would you like to receive from fans?" is simply "letters."

If you can't find blue roses, basic red will do.  It's not just Machi's symbol, red roses can represent the entire band.  Lareine's given them out at a couple of concerts.

You know that roses in Kamijo-azure don't really exist in real life, right?  We carry silk flowers to Lareine concerts, not just for Kamijo, but for all of them because real flowers are liable to wilt when waved in the heat of a livehouse.  So you might as well begin the search at a local crafts shop where they sell fake flowers, without worrying that you need to buy the flower the day of the performance to ensure it'll be fresh and pretty.

You'll be able to meet Kamijo.  ^_^  He's doing two signing/photo events in the dealers' room, one on Saturday and the other on Sunday.  The times haven't been announced yet, but you can check the jhouserock website for more information:

General Convention Discussion / Dinner with Kamijo
« on: April 30, 2006, 09:47:44 AM »
I don't know how outrageous the bids will really be, considering that at least a few of the biggest fans are refusing to participate out of protest.  The only circumstance under which I would bid is if the auction proceeds will be donated to a charity like Make a Wish.  I'd be willing to bid pretty high for charity, but it seems unlikely and I think you can basically count me out of the running.

If any of you do decide to bid, good luck!  ^_^  I'm sure the dinners will be a lot of fun.  I've met Kamijo at events here in Tokyo, and he's really friendly and charming.  The dinners should be great.
