Down at the Manga Cafe

Down at the Manga Cafe

Do you know, I enjoy doing large scenes. It ends up taking up all my time and I enjoy every minute of it. Then when I’ve finally sat back and thought…ok, we’re going with this…I then realise it’s going to take me hours to credit everything. This is one of those again. I love love love big busy scenes. They are the best things ever. I was meant to have this up yesterday, however it took me way longer than I thought it would in my arrogance, to set up and credit everything in a way that would be easy to navigate.

I’m actually working on another one because like I said, I like them, they take a while planning wise but I have the best fun. They do tend to translate into image and text heavy posts but I don’t think you mind such posts occassionally. How could I not share this with you? The main setting is from Kotte’s Manga Cafe gacha at the arcade and I love it, it’s so busy, so cozy when decorated. My inner bookwork is screeching. Screeching, I tell you. It is one of those things you can’t share alone so it’s another two person post. Initially it was just going to be Bear but it seems far too empty to do our whole antisocial thing. In reality curling up alone, surrounded by books in a soft sofa would be my idea of heavy. Aesthetically however it needed another person. Don’t tell Satomi, okay? I’m trusting you. Just like with most things though, it was way better with two. I actually wanted a third even because how amazing would that have been. I haven’t had three avatars in an image in so long. It will happen again, one day!

Hey, hey Bear – zoomed in

One of my favourate things about this set, besides the cute welcoming teddy is the book lights. It’s so genius. That’s something I’m going to just be putting in places without context because they are their own context. It will make the context because it is just that cool. The texture change and genres of mangas available are another favourate thing of mine. I love all the detail that went into each cover. It’s so good okay! I tried to get a few of them for you to see, there are a few more to explore but what would be the point of spoiling it all for you. You have to go find them yourself. Still, below are some of them. See if you can recognise the people on it. I loved that part of it but I’m not gonna spoil that either.

The outfits for today are also lovable. It’s full of cute adorable casualness. My avatar is wearing a really cute dress and cardigan combo from Cheezu which is available at Anthem and I love the floral girlishness of it all. It’s simple and beautiful. The outfit Satomi is in is by Parfait and from the arcade its a cute gacha set called Yakitama. The hairclips are so darling but I love the commons as well. The simplistic yet utterly cute style of a t-shirt combined with pleated skirt, where the top is white and the skirt does all the talking is everything. Oh, oh and the hat my avatar has on, I’m obsessed with it! Have you been to Sakura Matsuri? because if not, you really should. Thats where the hat comes from. It’s from Uzu x Dalonga’s gacha set at the event. I adore this hat. Good thing I won two of them isn’t it?!

Because I don’t want to keep you too long and speaking about every cool item in today’s post will keep you a while, I’m just going to try and wrap up and leave you to the credits because it is a list and a half. Just before I do howevver, I have an extra image for you of the outside. I liked this shot so much because it was sweet. Bear is so akward that even holding hands with a crush, even just for photographic purposes, would be something she would struggle with. She’s such a shy little bean.
