On Sunday I went to the Kyary Pamyu Pamyu concert that was held in Sydney as part of her Nanda tour and it was the only show she held in Australia! When I first found out she was coming I absolutely lost my marbles and stalked the ticket page as soon as they were released so I could definitely go. Nearly all of my friends were there, as well as interstate friends that I haven't seen in ages or haven't met in person before and it was just so awesome to catch up with everybody !!
I really wanted to wear something other than lolita, and came up with the idea to cosplay Kyary from her Glico pudding ad that she did a while ago (because I've always wanted a pudding hat *A*)!! I can't sew at all myself, so my beautiful friend Laura helped me make the whole costume from scratch and she sewed both mine and hers in two days. All I could make was the hat and the buttons, hahahaha. She wore the Furisodeshon dress, and printed all the fabrics and made the dress patterns and designs herself - she's seriously one talented girl man. She actually won the #kyaryfy contest and got a CD for being so amazing looking.

Laura and I headed to line up around 2pm even though the concert started at 7pm and derped around entertaining ourselves while everybody else rocked up and joined in the derps. We were interviewed for SBS Pop Asia, The ABC as well as Kyary's personal documentary team and media friends which was really exciting (and she's probably going to be a bit freaked out when she gets to the "do you have a message for Kyary" bit and I asked her to marry me) oh hohohohoho~

Amanda was lovely enough to let me use her photos that she took on the day on my blog! Please find hers located *here* !!

Out of all the concerts I've been too, it's definitely one of the biggest highlights for me because of the amazing performances, quirky costumes and stage set up, and the stage presence of Kyary herself with her intense and super talented dancers (except for the creepy rabbit bear man thing, please never visit my dreams or they will turn to nightmares). Fashion Monster, Invader Invader and Ninja Re Bang Bang were my favourite songs of the night. She encored with Candy Candy, read a little English speech before she debuted Family Party, and took a photo with the crowd at the end which was so cute. Throughout the whole concert she taught you dance moves or made you do certain actions for the songs she was performing so it was super fun to be able to get involved.
I was so tired afterwards that I headed straight home and crashed in bed orz;; I was also so derpy that when I ran through the door of the concert I forgot to buy a Kyary t-shirt and now I'm sad *A*!!!
