Shiga Kogen. Snowboarder:
Japan..... I love it!!
And can seriously ride.....
@Heinz @elSpike @Melskius @nanami_JS @Ramenman
That’s some serious inclination!
The hardbooter and their J-carving. It’s a sexy thing - even without the outfit!
How long did you follow her around for and did you pay her standard model rates?
Sorry, I'm a bit busy right now, so a very short reply and question : "Sandy-san talked to her?".
I mean, cosplayers like her are always waiting for someone to talk to them and praise their cosplay
I'll write a bit more later.
I've seen her 3 times, once this trip, and twice on the previous trip in Feb.
She's worn 3 different outfits.
This time saw her on the gondola. Tried to go ahead and stop to take video, but the first couple of times, by the time I stopped and took the camera out, she was gooorne!!
Two weeks ago
And this one taken by Melskius day before yesterday.
I did the same few runs at that time.
Nobody pays me standard model rates!!!
I should have!!
Best if you can ski/snowboard really well if you dress like that.
the Japanese are already into Corona fashion
Hardbooter , Fashion Plate
Sandy & I saw her a couple of weeks ago. We were going to try and follow her, but she wasn't mucking around and we still had our group getting organised, so she disappered quickly into the distance. But from what I saw she was carving really well.
Those are rare enough as it is even without the costume to go with it!
Go to Mt Racey.
Isn't the advantage of snowboarding that you can wear comfortable boots usually?
(ps, too many clothes for my usual photography)
She is wearing two different costumes. The first one is Hatsune Miku. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hatsune_Miku
The second one, I don't know but I assume it's a Japanese anime character. I feel fans of Japanese anime are getting quite international. I mean, there are a lot of Japanese anime related events and festivals all over the world and a lot of foreigners come to Japan for anime related events held in Japan too. Many of them are wearing unique anime related costumes just like the snowboarder and I like seeing them. Actually, one Japanese anime festival "Anime Japan Festival 2020" was going to be held this month, but it's cancelled because of the corona virus. I think it's a good decision. It's too crowded. For example, Comic Market 2019 attracted nearly 800,000 people.
The quality of the costumes was really high.
The pink one seems to be a Hatsune Miku, Senbonzakura
I'm in love....
Chick that can lay edge like that in short skirt!!
If body language could talk
even has the board as a barrier
By the way, I happened to find this video. This was filmed at Shiga Kogen in 2015 (April 4th), 5 years ago. I wonder if she is the same snowboarder. Just like Sandy-san did, the uploader was chasing the Hatsune Miku cosplayer girl to film her
That video looks like the same snowboarder (the riding style and costume)
But there seems to be more than one: (there's TWO at 1.30)
I'll see if I can upload my video.
That was the only place she could put the board.
Here are the videos.
Her skills are amazing:
Awesome. One of them is definitely the same girl. Hard yellow boots. I think her carving skills have improved since that video. Her friend is in more regular soft snowboard boots.
Body language is communicating plenty. no need to talk.
I have much respect for the Japanese culture, and their costumes, similar with the car modification culture, no f**ks given for what others think.if its modded, its cool. end of story.. and the variety is awesome.
That's a single photo when she was looking at her phone. The rest of the time she was arranging her outfit, her hair, and clipping up her boots....
There is a whole club of these that sometimes do events. I randomly ran into them at Tsugaike 2 years ago. They even have their own custom graphic skis and boards you can get from vail http://www.shop-vail.com I demoed Ogasaka park skis with this awesome graphic!
and this is their poster
Now for the disappointing part at least in that club most of the girl cos play characters where actually guys . Was a great event really different and fun to watch. I asked the Vail shop guys if I could get those skis or another model with the graphic, apparently you need to get membership in the group or their permission.
Not skiing but there is this awesome guy who climbs mountains in Japan in a Jack Sparrow costume. I met him twice, once at Shiojiri Halloween parade and once near Oku Hotaka.
Here is another random Ramenman's Japanese lecture. In the poster Zarik-san posted, you see 痛板 (Red part). 板 = board (in this case, both ski and snowboard). The Kanji of 痛 means "sore", "pain". Those anime fans decorate their gears and call 痛 + something. The most common is 痛車. 車 means "car". Anyway, they call their anime illustrated gears / cars "eyesore". (Edit : Blue ITAITA = 痛板, both 痛 and 板 can be read ITA)
About 痛車(ITA - Sha)
lol! We need to catch up sometime.
Anytime Haven’t forgotten bout your swaging tool collecting dust in my shed
Won't be in Sydney for a long time. Maybe next time you are at the snow.
