This was an event for minor idols, minor seiyuu, and cosplayers. This is a monthly event, but this was the first time that I attended.
This live house had two floors. The top floor had the stage, and an open area for the crowd. The people just stood around the sides, or sat on the floor in the middle. The lower floor had the drink bar, the dressing room, and a small area used for the photo shoots (a small area enclosed by a white sheet).
There were usually two things going on at once. There was a song stage on the top floor, and a photo session on the lower floor. Some of the girls just sang, some just had the photo session, and some did both.
The event started at 18:00, but I arrived at 19:00. Just as I arrived, Ichii Hiori and Chiaki were walking onto the stage. I had to hurry and set up my camera. There were no signs or announcement about what was allowed. At first I took pictures without flash, but it was very dark. Then I noticed that the people around me were using flash, so I set up my flash and took pictures with flash.
Then Hiori's photo session started at 19:30 (until 20:00). Hiori wore her China dress, but near the end, she changed back into her waitress outfit.
I found out that Adusa's photo session was from 18:30 to 19:00, so I had missed that. Adusa was there just for the photo session, and didn't have a song stage. But she hung around until the end, so I talked to her a little, and she let me take some pictures at the end (when the other girls were having their goods sale).
Ichii Hiori had a stamp rally for her three song events that she had in November. She had events on 11/09, 11/22, and this day (11/26). Since I went to all three, I got an audio CD with Hiori singing "Instant Days". This was different from the version on her CD. Hiori said this was her practice session when she was recording her CD.
photo notesI brought my 20D with the 70-200mm F2.8L lens and just one flash. I took 346 pictures, with 185 of them worth keeping. My photo breakdown per girl was as follows.
