Today I was the chosen adult to accompany my teenage daughter and her friends to Hyper Japan. I was happy to go, as I was hoping to find some Washi tape for my planner. The girls had put together some fantastic cosplay outfits, but they don’t want their pictures to appear on the blog, so you’ll have to imagine Pokemon Trainers and Attack on Titan outfits.
Most of my day was spent eating (very tasty) food:
While the teenagers went round every single stall buying a wide variety of anime-related things and plushies and taking pictures of some spectacular cosplay. I hunted everywhere for Washi tape, but there wasn’t a very good selection. I ended up buying 3 rolls.
They look really cute and will be perfect to use in my planner to mark school holidays.
