Back in action with Japan’s Party/Festa do Japão 2016!

Oh dear here we go, getting cobwebs on this blog…
Dear everyone, thank you once again for sticking around and still being willing to continue following our (mis)adventures in the real and virtual world! We are back once again and will happily resume posting to our hearts content so please ride the hype train with us!

Like always, we went M.I.A. for good reasons, one of them being our participation on last weekend’s Japan Party! It’s the equivalent of England’s Japanese Matsuri in London and we were so glad to attend!

A hot, sunny day for a bright party! Koi, koi everywhere!

Helping to get the stand ready and realizing the sun was ready to cook everything alive. Better put those noodles in the shade guys!

We got invited due to our participation on Jan Ken Pon’s newest issue that featured a whole story from 2010 by 50% StarTwo (here’s looking at the Cat) and it was just perfect for the party. The theme was chosen and celebrated the 150 years of friendship between Portugal and Japan.

It made our hearts skip a beat to be honest ♥

Apart from helping promote the Jan Ken Pon’s comic newspaper, we were also there to give autographs and make some portraits and since we had the time for it, we actually had a little Japan Party Souvenir ready! If anyone wants to buy one of these, get in touch, thank you!

Portraits, check. Souvenir quimono gal, check...

But because we were in an open space, people started to approach us even before the event started. We truly wished we had pretty pictures of everything that went on stage but…

Draw faster!! Relax we got this, I t-think!

… but soon this was our reality. It’s bizniss as usual for us. We’re so happy about that but boy, it was really demanding, especially as the day progressed. Next time, hats. Definitely hats. If you guys ever have to draw outside, even inside a comfy stand, get hats.

Our many thanks to Jan Ken Pon who took some of these photos and to everyone who gave us a hand, spoke to us and congratulated us on our work! We will aim for better, always!

Apologies if we sound too hyper. Chocolate cookies and coffee are the culprits. Take care everyone! See you soon!
