On the night of the 24th of June, in a little underground venue, some fans got together and had an awesome time at what was the first ever entirely Touhou Project-based music event in the UK.
The size didn’t stop everyone from having an awesome time. Several people DJ’d (including Piloru), and there were a couple of special guest acts – Masa-kun on the electric violin and Cassis and Ai-chan from the “Oh My Lord!” maid café. I helped out with fog and 2 laser beam-shows (which I’ll re-record and upload in their own videos some time), and Dnstje was kind enough to offer me his Bad Apple graphic laser show.
Is this the start of more to come?
As I was helping out, many of these video clips are all from around the DJ area, although I did try to move around a bit. Apologies for the distorting sound and grainy picture – it seems that very loud music in a dark place is not a good combination for my camcorder.
This was the 10th cosplay act at Animecon 2011 in Almelo, the Netherlands, on May 7th (Saturday). It ended up being the winning act in the competition.
No microphones were used for this act, so I tried to make the speech easier to hear in editing, but there’s still a lot of background noise (I was at the back of the hall >_<).
MCM Expo was held in London last weekend, and I took along the soundcase I’d been making, but it was my friend Dnstje’s remote-controlled Yukkuri which really stole the spotlight and turned into a remote-controlled crowd of dancing otakus. ;D
Thanks to Dnstje for editing the videos we recorded!
A new soundcase will be making its way to London MCM Expo in May 2010! Here you can see the making of it, and the old one being used in October 2009. It seemed to go down so well that I just had to do it again, and not a last-minute job, this time. ;)
The soundcase is basically music on wheels. Except that this time, you can also sing karaoke on it, and there are lights (although you probably won’t be able to see them much during the day, unfortunately… wish I’d made it last October, when it gets dark early :/ ).
Also, yes, I haven’t put any pictures on the suitcase yet (in this video), but I couldn’t really leave it until much closer to MCM before uploading the video.
We were walking away with some hardstyle blasting from a “sound suitcase” we’d made and used throughout the day, when a group of people started showing off some cool stunts to it.
This was at just gone 6 PM, after the first day of London MCM Expo, on Saturday the 25th of October 2009, just outside the ExCel building.
This was on the Saturday after Guy Fawkes Night at Cassiobury Park, in Watford, Hertfordshire, England. I’ve had to split it into 2 videos due to YouTube’s ~10-minute video duration limit. Please excuse the couple of times when the focus was lost, which was actually when I was trying to improve the focus. I’m especially glad with how the sound came out, except at the point when my camcorder split the recording to a second file, and when 2 noisy people suddenly appeared next to my left ear (both of these things happened in the second YouTube video).
Just parts of a little fireworks display held in a village which I live in, in Hertfordshire (UK). It’s only a small display. I had previously been recording something in standard-definition quality and forgot to set my camcorder back to HD before recording this. orz
Here are all the Caramelldansens which Dnstje and I recorded at MCM Expo last weekend, combined into one video! =D
Thanks very much to Dnstje for editing them all together, and even making dual-views for the parts where we were both recording at the same time!
Eye was the strongest, who also carried around around a “soundcase” (sound suitcase) which Dnstje helped me to make. It was playing the music most of the times in this video.
Dnstje, a friend of mine, made this remote-controlled yukkuri Reimu head, which also has a speaker for playing sound from things such as an iPhone connected to the controller. A bunch of Touhou fans formed around us, so Dnstje played some Touhou-related remixes on the yukkuri as we all chased it around the various rooms of the Abunai convention, seeing everyone’s reactions. =D
The alarms at 03:13 and 03:31 were set off by the FM transmitter (controller). xD
Sorry for the many fast-forwarded clips, but it was VERY hard to squeeze about 25 minutes of footage down to the length of the song. I tried to completely remove the most boring parts, and I sped up the parts where it took a while for anything different to happen.
I’ve been lucky enough to be able to travel to the Netherlands to attend Abunai, a convention to do with anime, manga and other Japanese stuff. The con lasted 3 days (Friday to Sunday), and we had to camp at a nearby place and travel between there and the convention site each day, using bikes we’d rented from the camp site.
So… for now, photos! Click any photo to see the full-size version. Here are a few which I took…
…and here are a lot more which a friend of mine took (including a few of mine, since he wanted to fill up his PhotoBucket account):
