Princess May OR my camera dislikes me x"D

Hello sweeties <3

I actually wanted to have my new video up already some weeks ago but after I was busy with life my camera decided it would just not take videos longer than 30 seconds anymore >.< I apparently need a bigger SD-card to make it work properly again *sighs* So at first I have to find the right SD-Card that doesn't cost me a fortune but still works *argh* Anyways, I was not lazy the last weeks and did quite a lot of things :3 Here are some outfits I wore during the last couple of weeks...and hopefully I am able to upload my next video soon...I have everything planned already...I only need my camera to work *hehehe*

Birthday Outfit - Salon de The Rose <3
For my birthday I invited my friends to Bruchsal and later we went to our favourite Japanese Restaurant together. And I was finally able to wear this beauty out *-* I bought it directly in Japan at Angelic Pretty and actually I only wanted to try it on, see that it wouldn't fit me and go on with my life...BUT well, it fit and I fell in love with it xD 

The whole Coord is Angelic Pretty except for the shoes (Bodyline) and the accessories (Primark, Justfab, H&M)~

Kind of Old School in Lavender~
Around 2 weeks ago my parents visited us in Freiburg and for this occassion I wanted to wear something relatively simple as my parents are not used to me wearing Lolita. Also as we had many things planned for that day I wanted to wear something comfy...and the dress I got from my dear friends for my birthday was the perfect choice :3 I saw the dress at the Baby-store in Osaka and fell in love instantly and I was the happiest girl when my friends told me they are going to give it to me for my birthday...Love you guys so much <3

OP+Headdress: Baby the Starst shine bright
Tights: H&M

Picnic at Monrepos
Last Sunday we had our monthly meet-up at castle Monrepos. and what better way to spend a nice spring day than to have a picnic. I am glad that so many gorgeous ladies and gentlemen attended *-* Having so many nice people attend the meet-ups you organized is the biggest praise in my opinion.

Blouse: Dear Celine

Can't wait for the long weekend *_* 4 days that are hopefully filled with loads of sightseeing, maybe a new video-upload and meeting some people :3

What are your plans? Do you also have a long weekend? In Germany we have a holiday tomorrow (at least the catholic parts xD) and on Friday most people take the day of. :3

Have an awesome day <3

AKB 0048 and my thoughts on the AKB 48-system

Hello sweeties <3

Recently I was rewatching AKB0048 and it made me rethink my opinion about the AKB48-system. If you don't know AKB48 it is a really popular girl group from Japan originating in Akihabara (thus the name ;D) that should originally consist of 48 members. Now they have several "undergroups" in Aichi (SKE48), Osaka (NMB48) and Fukuoka (HKT48) and over 100 members in total if I remember correctly. See the wikipedia article for more information ^.^

As the group is highly popular in Japan they also have their own anime called AKB 0048 set in the distant future where entertainment is nearly totally banned and AKB 0048 is trying to bring it back through Guerilla Lives on planets with the entertainment ban, as entertainment aka music is hope. Sounds weird when I read it now but it is really fun to watch and I have to admit the songs are catchy as hell. Also it sheds more light on what AKB48 means in Japan today. 
Until no I thought it was somewhat creepy that mostle men in ther 30s and 40s were attending the concerts like schoolgirls but rewatching the anime I realized that the girls in this group are really like a ray of hope for most of their fans. As they are no superstars like our western singers they seem more attainable. They are like the girl next door and through all the little events, that not only consist of standing on stage and singing, but also handshakes and meet-and-greets, they stay really close to their fans. I think this also is really important :) 
Even though it might look weird from a european/western point of view I think in Japan the existing of groups like AKB48 makes sense as even though the country is so crowded many people are alone even though they are living in Tokyo etc. And groups giving the illusion of closeness help a great deal coping with the loneliness.

What are your thoughts on AKB48 and their music? Are you creeped out or can you understand why groups like that exist?

Hope you have an awesome weekend :)
