Kaito Explores Tokyo Part II


A continuation of images from the last post: Kaito Explores Tokyo

The last post was a bit of a featurette on me exploring Tokyo in cosplay. I've got a continuation here now because the morning I was leaving I decided to do it ONE more time. I put on the costume and went right back to Akihabara for more cosplay antics! I even got to enjoy a maid café one more time before departure. The maid was European and spoke English to us, thankfully. We were also seated to some female Norwegian exchange students who seemed interested in my cosplay as well. Maid cafés can be quite expensive though...I paid about $15 to sit down and have a melon cream soda float.

See the rest of the images here:

This is the maid that was jumping up and down going, "Kaito! Kaito!" and wanted to get a picture. Really cute...


The above two are curious passersby who wanted to get a picture with me. The girls outside of KFC honestly stood there staring at me for 5 minutes while I was hanging around the colonel...when an old woman was passing by and took a picture of me (just because she found it interesting I suppose), the girls finally came over and got a picture as well.

This maid was out most of the day. I actually saw her quite a bit after this, waved to her and smiled.

These girls are a fond memory to me. I was heading into the store behind us, and they were heading in as well, but looking away from me. When I walked in front of them one of them saw me, and then tapped the others to take a look. One of them was very surprised and said, to my face, "Ah, Gaijin-da!"...which I found to be quite endearing because they all wanted a picture. That's nine girls you see...NINE. I still wonder how I managed that.



Of course, what kind of KAITO would I be if I didn't get an ice cream at first opportunity.


Of course I need a break some time...I went into an alley to get a drink and some fellow approached me asking for a picture...IN AN ALLEY. Like, wow.

You look very cute cosplaying as Kaito (I'm also a fellow cosplayer too). A very nice quality wig I see on you also. :) I enjoyed looking at your photos and plan to revisit the rest of your blog again. I'm glad to have found this site. cheers~

Aaaah! I wish I'd gone to Akihabara just a few weeks earlier! I would have loved to get a picture...

Anyways, you did a really great job on the costume! I bet everyone was excited to see a foreigner interested in cosplay/Vocaloid.
