    『11月になりました』
    こんにちは、Keikoです(´_ゝ`)
    11月になり、今年も後2ヶ月となりましたね。
    どうしてこんなに1ヶ月が早いんだろう…。考えた結果、毎月音楽を通して違った刺激を受けたり、やりたい事がありすぎるから早いんだ!!と、謎が解けました(笑)
    なんとも当たり前な(笑)
    皆さんは今年ここまで早かったと感じましたか?
    それとも長いな~(笑)と感じましたか?
    きっと様々な感じ方があるんだろうな…人の感覚や価値観の違いは本当に面白い。
    年齢を重ねる度に、例えば人の言う"当たり前"に衝撃を受けることがあります(笑)
    きっと、生まれ育った環境や、通ってきた道、関わっている人間関係、笑っている時間や悩んできた時間、、、一概には言えない"何か"が人を創っていくんだろうな…
    人間の不思議…好きな分野かもしれません。
    私は人が大好きですヽ(*´▽)ノ♪

    寂しがりやの甘えん坊ともいいます(笑)エヘヘ(´ω`)

    さて、前置きが長くなりましたが、11月に入った1日は、私たちKalafinaにとって大切な1日でした。

    ツアーファイナルという事で、東京国際フォーラムという素敵な会場でやらせて頂きました。
    足を運んで、一緒にあの時間を作って下さった皆さん、本当にありがとうございました。

    Hikaruがブログで丁寧にセットリストや今回のツアーのコンセプトを綴ってくれていますが、本当にその通りで、今回はこれまでやって来た私たちのライブの形を全部詰め込んでみました♪♪♪だから正しく今のKalafinaを直球勝負した感じだなって私は思っています。
    そして、勿論そこに新たな挑戦も加えて。

    ライブをやらせて頂くことで、自分と向き合う事ができました。
    それは普段考えない事を考えるからです。
    数年前にレコーディングした曲を今の自分達ならどう歌えるか、どう歌いたいか。曲への想い入れと今の自分が受ける感じ方の違い…ライブは本当に面白くて、同じように見える物でも全く違う。
    そして、ライブはお客様と私達で造る時間であって、どんな風にコミュニケーションがとれるだろうか…


    思い付いた事を書いてみました。
    一部ですがこんな感じで、ライブが決まると準備をしております。
    3人で準備する事と1人で準備する事があるから、いつも新鮮で、2人が出してくる新しい発想や考えをリハーサル初日は特に楽しみにしているんです。それが歌声から伝わってくるから…。


    今回は大阪と東京の二ヶ所でしたが、来年はたくさんの場所に行けたらいいなと願っています。

    今度は私達が行きますからね♪
    待っていてください♪


    これからも、皆さんの音楽を大切に3人で歌っていきます!!

    最後に今日のお花…お部屋が明るくなるように選んでみました。

    カーネーション・シンビジュウム・紫色の花がスターチスです♪♪♪

    では、また書きます♪

    le ritardando rants about their dresses :

    I still don't see the point of those weird hanging sheets on their white dresses. Maybe they put it to cover the see-through-laces part on their dresses but those hanging sheets are just weirdly placed, especially Keiko's because it does nothing and even maybe could make her trip when she walks.

    Rather than *unsuccessfully* covering the see-through-laces parts with those hanging sheets (that are bit too daring for my liking because they're too close to the girls' breasts, especially Hikaru's and Wakana's) might as well don't give them any see-through parts to begin with. I have a feeling those weird hanging sheets were added later to their dresses because of the see-through parts that are too close to Wakana's and Hikaru's breasts - that could explain the real weird sheet placing on Keiko's, because it'll feel more weird if they add extra parts on Wakana's and Hikaru's but none on Keiko's.

    The black ones are too simple. I think that's why they add the accents with golden-net-thingy but they just don't work for me - plus they're unoriginal in design because Wakana's dress has the exact same design (with only slight improvisation) with Hikaru's heavenly blue live dress. The only good one is the one that looked like belt on Keiko's dress.

    tl;dr : Kalafina live dresses are too often have too many unnecessary accents - they should cut some. But when the dresses are simple, they're way too simple.

    Actually I'm starting to like the sashes. But your theory makes sense.
    Now it's just the shoes that bother me //hit

    I don't think the dresses are too revealing at all, but Keiko's sash/scarf does look a bit odd. Maybe she should've flicked it over her shoulder or something? It looks like an accident waiting to happen just draped down like that. :omgz:

    Keiko, I totally feel that the year has gone by too fast!

    I usually enjoy the dress designs, but the sashes are too long and distracting. Perhaps wearing them as neck scarves or a belt may have been a simpler option.

    I actually like the sashes, and I don't think Keiko's is too long, since when if she does run on stage, it would go behind her, not under. And Hikaru's is the only one kind of just draped on there. Wakana's blue just compliments her. And I really like the golden net things. lol Whatever they're called. Especially Keiko's criss crosses.

    Yes the shoes are also disaster lol. I really don't see why would they have that kind of shoes with that kind of dresses :omg:

    Wakana's sash thingy is just placed weirdly, plus it felt like it came out of nowhere. Just no. Plus it's not pretty. Keiko's sash thingy is just not needed at all. Even if they placed it on the shoulder like her heavenly blue live dress, it simply does nothing other than being an eyesore. Actually I think all those sashes thingies are eyesore. :XD:

    I don't think Wakana's sash is oddly placed. It reminds me of Graeco-Roman togas/(whatever the Roman one was called) for some reason. Though it is Goddess Wakana we're talking about heuheu //whacked
    The only one I agree that is placed weirdly is Keiko's. It looks so off because her dress is shorter than the sash is
    Wait a second...just connected the sash colours with their Consolation dress colours. Lol. I wonder if those are their favourite colours or smth

    I think we should move this discussion to fashion/hairstyle thread. :XD:

    I said it was weirdly placed because the sash was sewn across Wakana's upper part but then they sewn it again so that it hung straightly on her skirt. If they want to have the sash to be long might as well let it fell straight like Hikaru's, or just don't have it that long, or let it circles/cross her waist and have it hang on the side. There are a couple things wrong with Wakana's dress but I couldn't word it lol.

    Or maybe I just really DON'T LIKE THE SASH THINGIES AT ALL BECAUSE THEY'RE EYESORE. LOL. :XD:

    The sash actually looks cool when they use it properly in live performances. Like when they are moving, the sash adds some effect. But in Wakana's dress it looks like its just there for design. So any chance that there is a skin-tone-cloth underneath those see through laces? Yes those parts are showing too much skin IMO.
