Habitare

Kuva
On Thursday 13th (2018) me and my class went to a exhibition center (Habitare) at Helsinki, Finland. The bus left at 08.15 from school, and our trip to Habitare started. Our teachers gave us a mission: photograh different textures and prints, anything interesting, collect business cards and most inportantly have fun.
It was my first time at Habitare, and I was really excited. The exhibition center is a really big building and holds a lot to see. Furniture, decor and design were the subject. On the previous day I had charged my camera ( not a professional one) , but when I took my first pictures with my camera, I realized that I can take pictures with my phone that have better quality than my camera...lol.
As I already mentioned Habitare is a relly big building, and I would have most likely got lost without my classmates. A lunch and few coffee breaks here and there made the day even better. I collected quite many business card and leaflets, maby one of those company´s could be my nex…

What is cosplay?

Kuva
Cosplay (コスプレkosupure) a contraction of the words costume play is a performance art, in which participants called cosplayers wear self-made costumes and fashion accesories to represent a spesific character. Cosplayers often interact to create a subculture, and a broader use of the term "cosplay" applies to any costumed roleplaying in venues apart from the stage. Any entity that lends itself to dramatic interpretation may be taken up as a subject and it is not unusual to see genders switched. Favorite sources include anime, cartoons, comic books, live-action films, television series and video games.
The rapid growth in the number of people cosplaying as a hobby since 1990s has made the phenomenon a significant aspect of popular culture in Japan ans some other parts of Asia and in he western world.  Cosplay events are common features os a fan conventions and there are also dedicated conventions and local and international competitions, as well as social networks, websites and …

The life of a fangirl / fanboy. (Kpop,anime etc.)

Kuva
Our lifes are something that many, many, many people dont and wont even try to understand. We dont socialize wery well, unles it is with a fellow fan. When a comeback, new season or a consert dates are realeased for exsample, the fandom goes crazy.

Personally when BTS released they´re world tour dates A.R.MY.´s around the world went crazy, and so did I. ( I became an A.R.M.Y around the half way of 2017)
 Sadly north europe has been ingnored...
Altough in IBigHits official site where you can see the consert dates, there is a small box that says " More dates to come", we still have hope my dear friends.


When we see merch from our fandom(s) we usually have to buy it, and we are most of our time broke.

I spend most of my time waching funny videos of BTS, SNK, Free! , FNAF, Red Velvet and so on... also korean dramas and animes.


 Time is also well spend when you are listening to kpop, jpop and songs from different animes, or reading mangas.
Sometimes it is hard to be a fangirl …

About myself

Kuva
I am 16 year old girl from Finland. (2002) My hobby´s are listening to music, reading, surfing on the net, thrift shopping and photographing.
What kind of music do I listen to? Korean pop, Japanese pop, pop, rock and metal. My favorite artists are BTS, Melanie Martinez, Band-Maid, Dreamcatcher, Red Velvet, Sia, Adele, REOL and BlackPink. I also consider starting cosplaying. I am currently studying to become a visualist, google it if you want to know more. ( currently at vocational school, kind of like high school)
Living in Finland has it´s perks. Education is free until you turn 18, and healthcare is also free for the citizens of Finland. In Finland´s schools english starts around the age of 9, and swedish at 12, depends where you live.
About 73% of Finland´s land areas are forrests, so you can imagine how it looks like, a lot of woods.
The winters are long, dark, depressing and really cold, so I don´t recommend coming here then.

Herbert "Herb" Ritts Jr. (August 13, 1952- December 26, 2002) was an American fashion photographer and director prolific for his photographs  of celebrities, models, and other cultural figures troughout the 1980s and 1990s. His work concentrated on black-and-white photography and potraits, often in the style of classical Greek sculpture, which emphasized the human shape.

Herb Ritts exhibition "In full light" was an interesting experience at Veturitalli museum (Finland, Salo). Guided tour gave a lot of interesting information about the pictures, and it would have been enjoyable without the guide too. Every picture has it´s own story, and that makes the pictures more meaningfull. If you have a chance to go and see this exhibition, I highly recommend for you to go.

We can do it!

Kuva
"We Can Do It!" is an American World War II wartime poster produced by J. Howard Miller in 1943 for Westinghouse Electric as an inspirational image to boost worker morale. The poster was very little seen during World War II. It was rediscovered in the early 1980s and widely reproduced in many forms, often called "We Can Do It!" but also called "Rosie the riveter" after the iconic figure of a strong female war production worker. The "We Can Do It!" image was used to promote feminism and other political issues beginning in the 1980s. The image made the cover of the Smithsonian magazine in 1994 and was fashioned into a US first-class mail stamp in 1999. It was incorporated in 2008 into campaign materials for several American politicians, and was reworked by an artist in 2010 to celebrate the first woman becoming prime minister of Australia. The poster is one of the ten most-requested images at the National Archives and Records Administration.
