October 21, 2010
Today I was supposed to go to the city of Takarazuka with Amelie to go to the Salon, but because I ended up comming alone, I had to go alone as well.. I was realllllllllly nervous! especially since I had to pick up my ticket which Sari reserved for me, and I wasn"t ven sure.. how/where/what.. and since I suffer from huge travelanxiety-stress.. I felt HORRIBLE..
I hadnt slept at all, had barely eaten.. ow, now that I am mentioning that.. I have a lot of trouble with food in japan.. and not because I don't love Japanese food... but I always seem to lose so much weight in japan.. I always feel stuffed after only bits.. for example.. the yesterday I only ate half an onigiri, and half a bowl of udon.. and the day before that, only 1 onigiri all day..
and I know its bad... its propably due to the stress, because I was so lightheaded all the time that I drank litters of cola for the sugar to keep me standing.. I was simply sooooo nervous.. I COULDN'T hold anything down, eve though I really wanted to,,
I was on the way to shin osaka, changed there directly for the train to Takarazuka.. found out I was in the wrong train, and then changed trains in ama-something, for the express,... which made me end up there earlier then expected.,..
*but still.. I was so freaked the entire time.....
about the City:
It's lovely! even if it wasn't for the theater, it has some beautiful architecture, and is surrounded by green mountains.,... kinda giving me the whole 'switzerland' idea.. only with more glitter xd
anyway, since my appointment was at 13:00, and I arrived at 11:00, I decided to look around, and make sure I knew where to go afterwards...
(god, I feel excited even typing about it!)
after I forced down a.. I dunno.. waffle thing.. I walked down the Hana-no-michi.. The theater is verrrrry easy to find! (thank god) and when I entered.. I picked up my ticket for the 22nd, which went well, and looked around..
JESUS its pretty. all the chandeleers, the carpet... I don"t know.. I did however, laugh at some of the |engrish| signs, and the fact that above the main area there was a big sign that said: "Paradise--->go right" XD XD XD well yeah..xd
anyway, it turned out to be no problem for the salon staff that I came alone, they just seemed very happy that I spoke japanese xd
as for costumes, I did Elisabeth *surprised?* Der Tod, and Oscar *that cool white outfit with the cape*
The make up was so cool! I tried to look for which brands they use, but could only see that they use shiseido brushes and sponges..
I have never worn so much makeup ever, but it was great! (btw, I swear even after the make up is removed.. which takes a while.. your skin actually becomes prettier! a side effect? I dunno.. but another great plus(
I did Elisabeth first, and wow was that wig heavy! but I did feel like an empress! it was amaaazing!
after that, I did oscar, which was like me becomming my childhood love..(yes, I did have a crush on lady oscar as a small girl.. so what xd)
and then.,..... DER TOD!
ahhh I liked doing that one the most! it was SOOOOOO COOOOL! the coat, the gloves, the hair... the everything! I just felt so.... cool xd
I actually made a squee sound of excitement, which had the staff laughing xd
all in all, it was definately one of the best. coolest things I have ever done in my life!
*ill upload pictures as soon as im home!
so afterwards, I went to the museum, where I took alot of picturures.. and spent.. ugh way too much money at quatre reves..*heeeelp!
when I left... I was mentally completely exhausted.. I haden|t booked a hotel yet, so I thought I might as well stay in Takarazuka because I had to be there the next day anyway.. So I stayed at the Washington plaza *which was unfortunately, just as expensive as it sounds.. BUT GREAT* for 1 night.. and saw Beni walking around in the city (I couldnt tell for sure.. she was wearing really big sunglasses)
by the way, the hotel had the sky channel, so.. after I long bath with shiseido stuffs, I enjoyed a quiet evening watching that :)
The next morning, after shoving a piece of toast down my throat and dressing up as pretty as I could, I walked towards the theater, * a bit early again for more shopping xd)
I was super hyped xd so I practiacally danced towards the theater xd hahahaha
that was, until I looked behind me, and saw that CHIE WAS WALKING 3 METERS BEHIND ME! so.. I thought.. O my god! and she smiled at me! and I could do absolutely nothing but smile back slightly, bow, and turn back front to walk on.. haha I swear, my heart was beating so loud, I thought she might here hahaha.
oi... Im reaaaaaaaallly sorry, but I gotta run! Sari is waiting for me to go outm and I am meeting Kaori later to go see the gypsy baron!
I will write more later!
love from Japan, my dears!
