Tokyo Expo - I didn't do a lot , but the pictures are pretty

My outfit, hehe. I like wearing autumn dresses when it's still summer.

Elli and Emilia are cosplaying Little Twin Stars, in case anyone is wondering.

So, I went to Tokyo Expo, looked at things, met some people, took a lot of pictures. I really didn't do a lot there, and I'm sort of tired with the whole people-obsessed-with-japanese-pop-culture thing and the lolita subculture too, so I'm not sure why I went, haha. I guess 'cause I'm aquainted with a lot of people there?

However, these days I'd rather just wear whatever I wear, japanese or not, and be left the hell alone. Same way I've always felt about music. I like what I like and I don't feel that I need to belong to any subculture because of it. Organised stuff and closely knit cliques tend to freak me out anyhow.

(I would like to point out, again, that I don't mind labels. I just don't want to be friends with everyone who happens to fit the same labels as me, just because of the label. My friendships run deeper that that. Still have an upcoming post on labels lying around, haha. :3 )


But the pictures turned out lovely. And the awesome people are awesome.

Day 5 – Is there a local Goth band or group in your area? + a small unrelated thing

Hi pumpkins!
I'm so sorry for randomly disappearing, especially after I started the whole challenge thingy and all... It's just that I've been super busy doing really awesome stuff, quite unexpectedly. Some of this stuff I've been doing is music related, which I think excuses everything. Heh. Once that music stuff is anywhere closer to done, I'll shower you with links and posts and god knows what. You know I will.

Anyhow, I'll try to do many of the challanges in one day untill I catch up. Not today, though.

So. Local goth groups.
Well, there's Dansdepartementet, I guess. I think they're okay.

There are no currently active goth bands in Sweden that I know of, but there are definitely some goth-friendly, post-punk inspired ones.
Diskoteket, for example, that I've recently found out about and turned out to really like. They let you download some songs from their last.fm, so go there and have a listen.
