So.. Stone Free was damaged during shipping. BUT, I'm a pro at backup plans. So we're playing up Stone Free's string abilities.

The parade was yesterday. My dress and wig got SO MUCH DAMAGE from all the people bombarding us. Also couldn't wear most of the costume due to the heat. Anna was kind enough to get me an ice pack to keep me from basically dying out there. I can't even begin to describe how fucking hot it was.. IT WAS NASTY.

Imagine Otakon and its heat + humidity. Now.. multiply that by about 100. Plus the dress was heavy. Needless to say, shit was not in our favor. I feel even worse for Korea in their D. Gray Man costumes.. poor guys. Oh well, its a good thing parade-chan is not FABULOUS-CHAN (which btw, we are putting on now.. 4 hours early.)

Our nails.. are covered in sparkles and rhinestones. How gay and fabulous can we get? If we could only roll around in glitter and sparkles, we could.

Japan is very hot and humid in the summer.

When I was there in 2007 I had to CONSTANTLY drink water to prevent myself from dehydrated. I remember I was constantly buying water from the vending machine.

I hope the show goes well for you. The humidity must have been as bad as Atlanta I would guess. I have been to the deep south (Alabama and Georgia) and it was bad there.

Sorry about the humidity and damaged stuff. Sounds like GA here in the summer. Ugh. Over 100 degrees the other day.
