Funny Food: Green Tea Cake 面白い食べ物:お茶ケーキ

If you're Japanese you'll probably think this is the most natural taste in the world.

But me and some foreign friends found it amusing that the Green Tea Cake were a very popular desserts in Japan.

Supoccha: Sport Mini Games スポッチャ:スポーツのミニゲーム

If you ever wondered what it's like to play Mario Party in real life, Supoccha is the place to try!





Yukino aka Yukinyan approves!

Mechanical bull! Sadly we didn't have any volunteer for this pic. ;)

And what's a sport center without mini motorcycles?

Finally, my favorite sport: Purikura.

Whenever it becomes an Olympic event, I'm gonna compete! ^^

If you're in Japan, you can enjoy Supoccha in some of the Round 1 entertainment centers! Peace out! :)

Random Purikura #4: Tomomi

Purikura taken on New Year's Eve with Tomomi I met on a school party.

Went to a cinema in Shinjuku and watched the romantic comedy with the same name as that day: "New Year's Eve".

Then we never met again.

Who knows why. I guess it was a romantic comedy!

Never take people for granted, because it might be the last time you see them!

No Hat - No Life 帽子をかぶってみる

There's so much funny hats nowadays that it would be a waste of head not to wear one!

I went to try on some.

I liked this one with a skeleton hand on it!

Cool that the "NY" also is written with bones!

Here's other memorable hats I've tried. =)

Fur hat at LaForét in Omotesando.

Animal hats in Shinjuku, not sure why they used Obama as model for a Panda hat...

I can sense huntsmen coming to get me. ;)

German Flo in a hat with a red light on top of it, in Nude Trump's masquerade store in Shibuya.

At Don Kihote. Not sure what kinda hat it is but...

...but the Mad Hatter would be green by envy if he saw me wearing it! I took the pic at Hollywood Boulevard.

This hat is number 1 on my wish list though! Pink poop, Dr. Slump style!

Movie Time! ムービータイム!

I got a package from Japan with movies a few days ago. =)

One of the movies were Men's Egg Drummers, about the meeting between the old traditional Japan and the new young Shibuya.

I got invited by Chibou who's in the movie to see the premier about a year ago but sadly couldn't go, so it will be fun to watch it now! :)

Here's some of the other actors from the movie, many of them Egg models.

Trailer with English subtitles. A lot of "Agepoyo" in there haha!

The other movie is a documentary about the Egg magazine and the models. Interesting!

Trailer with Ayumu and Co who gives us a insight to their lives! :)

You can order the movies here. Sadly there's no subtitles, but at least there's a very good description on how to open the packages: "good!" ;)

Don't forget to buy snacks before watching! Jonathan is ready haha! ^^

The UppCon Family! アップコンのファミリー!

This weekend 4000 people that like Japan had a family meeting, I mean convention! :D

The fashion were more colorful than the rainbow!

The CosPlay insane!

The games hilarious!

The seats cozy!

And the beds... well you're not supposed to sleep there Jonathan! ;)

Anyway, best of all: The hugs were for free! ^^

Many familiar faces in Uppsala where UppCon was, first these two at Burger King. =)

Seike and Yohio from Seremedy were promoting their new album.

Met Nicole, Marijela and Saga on the way in to UppCon.

Saga's home made hair diadem with black and white roses. Original!

But she were not the only one showing off her skeleton! ;D

Victoria from Top Model Sweden also opened up!

Showing skin is so 2000 late!

Hairstyle from a model shoot she had just done.

On the second day I were in a fashion show with all these wonderful people! Family photo! ^^

The organizer Rebecca gave instructions on how to walk.

Everybody listened carefully.

Waiting nervously in line for going out on the cat walk.

Wish me good luck! :P

Ready to enter the stage.

The kind audience that had joined us in the morning to see our crazy outfits! :)

Here we go!

Thanks to Hyo for taking these cat walk pics! =)

Beautiful Emi!

A rose in the eye!? I like it! :D

More naked bones!

Afterwards I met these super cool blog readers Emma and Sabina. Read Emma's blog here! :)

More awesome blog readers! Thanks a lot for cheering on me in the fashion show and to everybody that came up to me! I'm honestly touched!

Some of my blog readers got information about studying in Japan from Jonathan  working for Blueberry.

He felt like he stuck out looking regular with all the CosPlayers around him. =/

 So I gave him a crown. Now he totally blends in! ;)

Jonathan's stylish friends from the band Overworld dropped by. =)

Not to mention the mad Lego professor! :O

Fascinating - in a scary way! ;)

Haven't seen this good CosPlay since Tokyo Game Show!

Cuter than dolls!

Scarier than monsters!

More 3D than Avatar!

Younger than Justin Bieber!

Hungrier than Kirby!

Hopefully better friends than Link and Ganondorf! ;)

Jonathan got lot of inspiration from the CosPlayers for the drawing competition!

Lately many people come up and tell him he looks like the actor Matthew Gray Gubler from Criminal Minds.

Two people mentioning that were the Super Mario Sisters.

Their brothers must be so proud of them! ^^

Two other "sisters"! :)

Home made crown and accessories.

So many fantastic dresses!

Often accompanied by stuffed animals. =)

Plus colorful hair!

So many unbelievably cool people but only a three days long event! :/

I wish their were time to get to know all of them!

An infinite amount of creative styles!

I need to update my wardrobe when it comes to hats by the way! :D

One with eyes would be practical! :)

Maybe Emilia(right) can help me make one since she won second prize in best handicraft at UppCon! =)

Two people, or mice, that had made their own hats were these!
One deadmau5, two deadmi5? I that how DJ grammar works?

Anyway, you haven't really partied until you partied with the "deadmi5"!

The days at UppCon ended in Rave parties.

This is how I felt when UppCon was over haha! ^^

Thanks a lot to all of you who made UppCon! Staff and visitors alike! Orange gotta be my new favorite color! :)

Except for these entrance bracelets, I got one souvenir from UppCon.

It was given to me by two Hetalia Cosplayers, and was exactly what I needed.

A heart - to replace my old one broken by the real world.

How can I top going to Scandinavia's biggest Japan convent? By going to Europe's biggest one in Paris next month with 200 000 freaking visitors! See you there? :)
