JUST BE FRIENDS: Goodbye by behindinfinity JUST BE FRIENDS: Goodbye by behindinfinity
Yesterday a tranquil night made me realize
It'd be useless to pick up fallen petals
Because it'd never bloom again
It's tiny but already dead on my palms
Our time stopped long ago

Just once,
just once,
If I could have my wish come true
I'd be born again and again
And go see you on those days

Goodbye, my sweetheart, it's over
We have to leave without turning back

— excerpts from "Just Be Friends"

:rose: Animated version of this photo on my Tumblr :pointr: [link]

Agh, this song </3 The lyrics are translated so they aren't exactly perfect at times but the thought behind them, coupled with the images on the video (especially the flashbacks) tears at my chest guts. Watch it here (w/english lyrics) :pointr: [link]

There's a sequel to the song after several years, and it's got great lyrics too. The song is called Answer (アンサー) :pointr: [link]

:bulletred: About Just Be Friends:
Personally, I was initially drawn to the song because of the art style in the video, and then I liked the catchy, seemingly upbeat melody of it. Later on I noticed the lyrics and I was like, OUCH. Right in the kokoro heartstrings.

Nonetheless it is a great song with heartbreakingly beautiful lyrics, and I encourage you give it a listen if you haven't. It spawned a lot of covers, a lot of which I also enjoyed. One of my favorites is this male version by Rapbit and Zebra :pointr: [link]

:bulletred: Flower wreath tutorial:
We made the flower wreaths ourselves, trying our best to make it as accurate to the original illustrations. I took progress shots of my process. You may see my photoblog about it here:
Vocaloid JBF Flower Wreath + Ciel lenses, etc.
Jin's Flower Wreath Process
Sometime last May, Kat ~moonlightflight and I cosplayed our favorite Vocaloid song, "Just Be Friends".
Their outfits seem simple at a glance, but that actually makes things more complicated sometimes. Hahah. Despite Luka's dress looking like something you could probably find in a mall, Charmie ~yaoiangel14 made the dress from scratch exactly as it looked in the artwork, just for Kat ~moonlightflight. Kat and I also did our best  with the part of their outfits that had the most amount of detail (which also happens to be our favorite parts) — the flower wreaths. I have some pictures of the progress of my wreath, so I thought I'd share them. This probably isn't the best method of going about this, but this is how I did mine and I found it pretty easy. (I wish I could have taken more photos or a video, but to be honest

:iconmoonlightflight: Kat — Megurine Luka
:iconbehindinfinity: Jin — Luka's ex-boyfriend (haha)
