This was a singing and photo session event by many cosplayers, but this event was produced by a strip theater! (Of course no stripping by the cosplayers..) The event was held for three days, and each day was over three hours. It flowed as follows: songs, photo session, songs, photo session. Each day, the cosplayers were divided up into two groups. The first group sang and had a photo session (less than two hours). Then the second group sang and had a photo session.

They didn't allow photos during the singing part. After the singing part, they had about 30 minutes for the photo session, but it was very dark inside the theater, so it wasn't that good for taking pictures.

The crowd was around 40 people on Friday, and over 50 people on Saturday. But since I left both days after the first half, I don't know if more people came for the second half.

I went to see Saaya on 6/24 and 6/25, and this was her 9th and 10th singing events.

On Friday (6/24), Saaya wore her white maid outfit. She also put white ribbons in her hair. Saaya sang "Mail Me" (Momoi Haruko) and "Sakuranbo" (Ohtsuka Ai). She also trimmed her front hair (by herself). But she had cut it a little too short.

Saaya didn't participate in the photo session this day, as she would participate in the next day's photo session. But she came out and let me take some pictures of her.

On Saturday (6/25), Saaya wore her black one piece, with white trim. She sang "Sekai ha Pi-Po-" and "Kujibiki Unbalance" (Under17). This was the first time that she sang "Sekai ha Pi-Po-", and she was a little nervous. This was the third time she sang "Kujibiki Unbalance", and she's getting better every time.

Yanagi Mao sang a medley of anime/game songs, which included Tokimeki Memorial, Sentimental Journey, and Sister Princess. I think this is the first time that I heard anyone sing any Senti related song at one of these events. Mao wore the Pia Carrot waitress outfit.

Sagami Jun dressed up as a character from Hagane no Renkinjutsushi, and only sang one song.

photo notes

Over the two days, I took 146 photos with my 20D, with 122 of them worth keeping. I kept 103 photos of Saaya, and 19 photos of Sagami Jun.
