I am sore today, but not nearly to the point of not being able to move, so it's all good.
Lately, we've really been wanting to cosplay Hikaru and Kaoru from Host Club. Why? Purely for the attention. And of course because we ♥ Host Club and want everyone to know it, but mostly for the attention. I mean, since the anime started, I already mentioned all the Host Club icons we've seen, and how most of them are Hikaru and Kaoru. They really seem to be the most popular characters of a very popular show.
And, actually slightly to our disappointment, we discovered that the manga is being published in English by Viz, and there's already more than one volume out. We really should have realized sooner, since we know of at least one person reading the manga who we didn't think read Japanese that much. In our defense, the only English manga we follow closely is the stuff we translate. That's probably very elitist of us, but it's not to be elitist that we don't read the English manga.
Anyway, the manga being out in America means that even more people know about Host Club, and so even more people would recognize the costumes from Host Club. And on the forums we were reading to find out about this, it looked like Hikaru and Kaoru are still the favorites. And with the right poses... ew, that feels wrong.
Unfortunately, we really don't have the money for Host Club costumes, or any other costumes, really. I really think it would be awesome to go to Disneyland as either Kairi and Namine from KH2 or Husky and Cooro from +ANIMA. We'd probably want wigs for Hikaru and Kaoru anyway, since they wear school uniforms, and with our glasses we could easily be mistaken for a pair of Kyouyas. It's just as well, because I don't know if it would be fair for us to cosplay Host Club without baranoneko, since we already planned a group for the mythical imaginary time when we're all at a convention or other event involving cosplay together. But we want to soooooooo bad!
Today I'm thankful for new air conditioner filters, baking mixes, Nature Valley oat & honey granola bars, the ending theme to FushigiBoshi no FutagoHime Gyu!, and the opening theme to the same.
