Edgeworth, Oskaar and John Cena's journey - #Star☆AnisGoesToAndorra

Last weekend I went on a mini-holidays-trip to Andorra with my dearest flatmates, Fuko (Júlia) and Naranja (Eva). Since we had to come back to Barcelona on Sunday, we should catch the bus on Thursday but unlike Júlia and Eva, I had to go to the university on Friday because I had an exam at 9 o'clock.
After my exam, we went to the bus station, had some McDonald's for lunch and then the bus took us to Andorra La Vella.

During the bus journey Júlia and Eva slept and I read the book I'm currently into, "Sé quién eres" (or I remember you in English/Ég man þig in Icelandic) by Yrsa Sigurðardóttir. When we arrived, we were taken to my mother's house to leave our suitcases and have some coffee.

Then, we went to the city to have a walk. We watched the Christmas lights and bought some make-up. Also, there was a gorgeous blue giant Christmas tree and although it was very cold outside, we couldn't resist to go inside it.

Shops and malls closed at 8 o'clock so we came back to our house and had dinner; we were very tired. Before we went to sleep, random stuff happened.

We're serious people

There was a room for Fuko and Naranja and another one for me. The one I was staying in had an air cushion that was trying hard to fall on the floor, but the room was too small to allow it.

That was the view I had from the bed
I also read a little of my book before I fell asleep.

Once we had slept as much as we wanted, we had breakfast, watched TV, ate lunch and went to the city in the afternoon. We went shopping (again). We bought some clothes and went to the Pyrenées shopping mall. There I could cry on my dear Michael Kors branded bags.

When all the shops closed, we decided to chill somewhere far away from the cold outside so we drank a glass of wine in a very chic bar. Meanwhile, Eva took the camera and shot some photos.

After that, we had dinner, changed our clothes and went out to have a girls night! We ended up in a pub called Chesterfield Lounge Andorra. This pub was A-W-E-S-O-M-E. At first I had a Cosmapple cocktail which resembles the Cosmopolitan quite much but it tastes more like apple. Eva ordered a Blue Mojito and Júlia ordered a Coconut Mojito. In this pub you could play any game you wanted! We started by playing Uno and later we played Jenga. We also decided that every time one of us lost a game, she had to have her arm painted by any of us. That's how we ended up with giant dogs, Luo's and Undertale characters in our arms.

Finally, we ordered more cocktails and we played the "Who am I?" game, which ended up being the funniest game. We played 5 rounds in which we had 5 characters:

Eva's characters:
- Edgeworth (Ace Attorney) given by Fuko
- Prof. Quirrell (Harry Potter) given by me
- Ted Mosby (HIMYM) given by me
- Asha (Fuko's dog) given by Fuko
- June (Pretty Rhythm Rainbow Live) given by Fuko
- Umi (Me) given by me

Fuko's characters:
- Draco Malfoy (Harry Potter) given by Eva
- Handsome waiter from the chic bar where we had delicious wine given by me
- John Cena (WWE) given by Eva
- Hannibal (Hannibal) given by Eva
- Susie Salmon (The Lovely Bones) given by me
- Moe (The Simpsons) given by me

My characters:
- Kirby (Kirby) given by Eva
- Carmen de Mairena given by Eva
- Kyuhyun (Super Junior) given by Eva
- Our housekeeper given by Fuko
- Lolita (Lolita) given by Fuko
- Oskaar (My cousin Oskaar video) given by Fuko THE BEST ONE EVER

When the pub closed (3am aprox) we took a taxi that drove us to the house.

We tried to wake up early in the morning...but we failed.

Colours in the sky - Rainbow

Hi there! I'm already preparing a new entry since I had a mini-holidays-trip with my two flatmates and I have lots of photos to show you! But I won't be talking about this today. A friend of mine released his first official album last summer and the last music video came up last week, so I'd like to show you guys a sneak peek of it.
The name of the album is RAINBOW and each song is associated with a colour. The first video that was released was The Fourth Wall. One month later, The Last of My Kind was released, which happens to be a very emotive song. Two months after the first video was released, Mannequin (Love Dildo), that ended up being my favourite one and one of my favourite songs of the year, came out. After that, I didn't have to wait very much to see the fourth mv, Wonderwall. The two following videos were Diet or Die and I Need a Moment, from which I loved the introduction. Finally, as I said before, the last music video came up last week and it's Child Me. This one is my favourite after Mannequin (Love Dildo) and it gives me a lot of feels because it kind of shows the end of the "trip".
I'll leave all the videos down below:

Take some minutes to watch them, they're worth it. You can also follow his updates through his tumblr blog, Facebookspotify or iTunes.

Nice to meet you?

I've thought about starting a new blog and closing this one lots of times, but I always decide not to do it because this site is full of memories I don't want to lose. I started using this blog in 2011 and I wrote an introduction post but since it was in Spanish, 4 years passed and many things changed, I thought I should introduce myself again. I also got lots of new followers, which is good and makes me happy because I know someone will read what I post and may enjoy it. Here I go!

My name is Judit, but I'm sometimes called by a nickname, which can be "Umi" or "Luo". My birthday is on the 24th January and I'm from Spain. I'm currently studying a Translation and Interpretation degree at the university in Barcelona and my career languages are French and Japanese. I love languages. I can speak Catalan (native), Spanish (native), English, French, Japanese (not at all but I can keep a simple conversation), Korean (the most basic level) and I've recently started to study Icelandic. I'm in love with Nordic languages, so I am with Icelandic; it's a gorgeous language and I really hope to get to speak it properly someday.
I studied Korean for 2 years, but I had to leave the academy due to personal reasons. It doesn't mean I don't want to continue learning the language, I've just decided to pause it because I kind of lost my motivation and I don't have time to do stuff that doesn't motivate me at all but I look forward to continue my Korean journal I used to write while I was taking lessons. The next language I want to learn is Estonian, I love this language so much and I love the Estonian cities and landscapes. (No, I haven't been there yet)

My Kikuri cosplay (Jigoku Shoujo Futakomori) - 2015
I think if I've to introduce myself it's important to mention the word COSPLAY. Yeah, I've been a cosplayer since 2011 and I enjoy cosplaying my favourite characters. I'm not going to show or mention all the cosplays I've made through the years because I'm too lazy to do it, but you always can stalk this blog's old and embarassing posts or the Soleil Cosplay page in Facebook.
As I said many times, my books are my treasures; I love reading. My favourite books are The Silmarillion, The Night Circus, We were liars, We all looked up and Heima es hogar en islandés. I really recommend them all to you. I also love writing. One of my life goals is to write and publish my own book (and I'm on it). I also like to write letters and postcrossing.

A postcard I received from the Czech Rep.
I also love movies, but I can't choose a favourite one. I have a favourite director who is Wes Anderson, my favourite movie from him is The Royal Tenenbaums.
Right now, I'm living in a students flat with my two dearest friends Júlia (Fuko) and Eva (Naranja). Since all of us are cosplayers, we make the real chaos when it's the "cosplay season". I love living with them.

It's possible that next year I'll go to study abroad in Japan or in Iceland, but I won't know that until this month's 17th, so wish me luck!

【Luo Tianyi - Scarlet Ball 血色舞会】My cosplay pics

Hi there! As I also cosplayed Luo Tianyi from Scarlet Ball (Vocaloid China) I'd like to show you some photos and WIP.

 First of all, this is how the Soleil atelier looked when we started making our cosplays:

The yellow fabric is mine; the red one is from Fuko's cosplay (Yuezheng Ling)
We spent some weeks sewing our cosplays. To be honest, I wasn't motivated at all because I barely liked my costume's design. I really hesitated I could finish my cosplay because I had lots of exams and I wasn't in the mood to sew a dress I didn't like at all. 

These photos are from the day I made the pleated skirt. In the left you can see my flatmate Eva who was also sewing her cosplay and seemed very amused about how my skirt ended up.

These are from the day I made the top. I really enjoyed making it but I didn't like how the black thing looked on me (but that's because my waistline is like my Michael Kors bag, it doesn't exist.

This is from the day I cut the large skirt. It really took a long time to paint it, but I had a lot of fun. While I was sitting on the floor trying to not fuck it up, Fuko was looking at me from the sofa; such an emotive scene.

I finished my cosplay the day before the con, but I could sleep my necessary amount of hours. Cristina from Represart took us some photos (thank you, Ruby!):

I also took some selfies with Fuko and Patis (*¯︶¯*)

((( ̄( ̄( ̄▽ ̄) ̄) ̄)))

I'm gonna end this post by recommending y'all the song we cosplayed, Scarlet Ball ☆ ~('▽^人)

góða nótt .:☆*:・
