JUST BE FRIENDS: I'm Sorry by behindinfinity JUST BE FRIENDS: I'm Sorry by behindinfinity
I knew it at the bottom of my heart
The hardest choice would be the best

: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. Watch it here (w/english lyrics) :pointr: [link] </3

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)

You're standing on a stool! :giggle: You might have looked taller if you had used a longer jacket, which would make your torso look longer which subsequently creates the illusion that you are much taller than Kat.

Love the song too! (The boyfriend suggested that he and I cosplay it, but I don't want to, haha...)

Haha, I'm actually not! I'm really taller than Kat ;p And I'm keeping with anime proportions of tall — shorter torso and looong legs. XD Which is kind of like my natural proportions but not quite so exaggerated!

I can understand why you wouldn't want to! It'd be too sad and maybe bad luck, hahah

I admit I prefer the male version by Rapbit and Zebra. Thanks for sharing!
I didn't understand the lyrics, but my fujoshi mind kept telling me it's a BL version.
A male version and it's your favourite... :iconmhhmplz: <-- gives me this face.

Is there by any chance that you'll gonna do a male version? :iconmhhmplz:
