Konoha Gakuen Photoshoot
We loved both the Shippu! Konoha Gakuen Den omake episode and the Michi ending (which we hope to do a proper recreation of when more characters are ready) so we really looked forward to having a shoot based on them. After several days of rainy weather, the sun shone brightly for us that day. I think everyone had fun speculating coming up with situations for that alternate Naruto universe, as well as revisiting our own high school memories.
You might see more from us when we're not quite so busy.
Everyone's currently doing a lot in preparation for Lights Out Convention. If you're going, please drop by our table even just to say hi.

Tickets are pegged are pegged at PhP 150 each (inclusive of single-use Event Badge and Library Pass), while tickets to Cafe Le Mirage are at PhP 80 each (inclusive of one half-hour tea set).
*And to anyone who is curious why there is a cafe in a con, it will be a butler cafe the male counterpart of the very popular maid cafes. Yes, male butlers catering to your whim for a half hour.</sub>
Like I had mentioned here, we're going to have quite an assortment of stuff up.
Kat ~moonlightflight and China !snowpeachdrop are going to sell shirts and display samples of their handpainted sneakers; you can place custom orders for them as well. (Check out Kat's journal entry for more details about this).
Isa !sabotenshi, Tracy ~13idiotbox
and Rayson ~sinag-araw will be publishing their own SasuNaru doujinshi, and you can get copies of the first issue there.
Miguel ~merkymerx and I will have a limited number of prints of this
SasuNaru art collab we're working on. And I think Kiks ~kiksology might be selling stickers of his drawings.
Konoha Gakuen Omake
myself as Naruto
...in a portrait style strongly reminiscent of boyband posters
Miguel as Sasuke
...reading SasuNaru doujinshi for reasons I do not wish to know
...failing at Kawaii no JutsuJust a trial cosplay for her somewhat, since she has yet to get a proper wig, contacts and theatrical makeup for covering up the eyebrows and painting on the 愛 (kanji for "love") on Gaara's forehead. We were supposed to attempt it but given all we had at hand at the time, it surely would have melted off within minutes because it was such a hot day.
Our day started off at the usual cafe.
and I shared some cake, which we enjoyed thoroughly.
Lovely, aren't we?
It's not so much fun trying to get cake out from between your teeth. If you direct your attention to the bottom-right corner, you can see how Rayson particularly likes to make records of our worst moments. That's what friends are for.
Sakura x ...Kat
I'LL TAKE IT!
does not know what to do with herself after taking in the fact that she had no eyebrows. (Don't worry, we didn't shave them off while she was sleeping or anything like that. They're just covered up with makeup.)
GAARA SEES WHAT YOU'RE TRYING TO DO THAR
"...one sign of the newlywed is the nude apron. Nude... apro- WAIT, WHAT?"
"CHARMIE, I THOUGHT YOU SAID THIS MANGA WAS ABOUT BOYS"
Do you want some cake, Ka-AAAAARGHHHH YOU'RE NOT KAT
HELLO SECKSI BOY
THAT IS QUITE AN ATTRACTIVE CROTCH PIECE YOU HAVE THERE
Guys, why do you waste your memory taking pictures like this?
He's helping me up the slippery moss-covered rock, okay. OKAY?
"Shcrew yuwr guysh. I'm jufft gunna eat mry noodrs."
"...You do know that bits fly off and land on me
when you talk like that, right?"
Gaara doing morning exercises
to warm up before playing in the sandbox
YOU BEST NOT BE DISSIN' MAH MATHLETES, JABRONIE
GET THESE JIGABOOS OUTTA MY SIGHT
Gaara does not approve of these flowers.
Yeah, I'd totally eat those chips if Gaara endorsed them. Because it looks like he might kill me if I do not.
makes the Yaoi Enforcers: Tuxedo Team Division happy and had drawn some of our cosplay pictures before
, we decided to...
...do a photo based on one of her drawings.
Kat happily welcomed us into her home, where we devoured a large part of the beautiful strawberry cake Charmie had baked.
Once we had our fill of cake... We went to the mall for more food. Chili dogs and ice cream, mmm.
Kat walked around flashing people.
stole that Vanessa person from Zac Efron.
And then there was an invasion of Isa's room for a slumber party of sorts. Minus the sleeping.
And then we had more food. A couple of pizzas.
Nico dropped by and introduced us to his friend Louie, who seemed utterly perplexed. I don't blame him. All ten or so of us were scattered around Isa's room, most were wearing funny hats, holding cameras, balancing things on sticks, rolling around the four-posted bed with stuff hanging all over it, trying to figure out what half of Isa's junk was, tossing around a deceiving stuffed crab, and uhh... you get the idea. The one thing that Louie said was, "Wow. I feel like I'm in [insert name of butthole of the internet]
Kiks was a pretty pink princess
Kawaiiest in the land. Truly.
I AM KITTAN
I had some sexy bedroom slippers. That is, if your idea of sexy is anthropomorphic food by-products. (For those of you who might be wondering, it's a smiling tofu creature. With ears. Or paws. Or perhaps arms. Or maybe feet?)
That's it for this wholesome installment which does not have a lot of SasuNaru undertones at all! Pleasant something, everyoasdfsl;ejkf;q23ikldlsl
SOMEBODY PLEASE SEND HELP
JOURNAL HIJACK! Now it's OUR turn!
Jin, that wasn't very nice. That wasn't what we talked about. It looks like we're going to have to do this ourselves...
Hello, readers. What you've read before this point was far from a complete report. It seems that Jin had skipped through quite a lot. We did indeed have a gakuen-themed shoot, had some cake, and invaded bedrooms, but what you saw wasn't all that really happened.
Miguel didn't seem to mind much at all, did he?
Can't say the same for poor Jin.
Jin was apparently so nervous that this sweat mark was left on the blackboard. The spiral is from the Uzumaki symbol embroidered on the back of the coat.
Ohhhh, another one comes into the picture! Who could this be?
But it seems that there's only one person who really occupies all of Sasuke's waking thoughts. And perhaps even dreams.
Let's see how he came to be in this position.
Sasuke appears to have fallen asleep during their last class and missed the bell...
And now, another heartwarming story of two students in the springtime of their youth!
The two boys were given supplementary duties by their homeroom teacher, Mr. Hatake. It was no surprise in Uzumaki Naruto's case, for he was barely passing his classes and would be kicked out if he continued to do so badly.. But what is top student Uchiha Sasuke doing there? Apparently he had no club activities, and had to make up for it somehow. He was given the responsibility of supervising Naruto.
After getting through the assignments for the day, they hurried to head home.
THEY COULD NOT HANDLE THE INTENSE SEXUAL TENSION IN THE ROOM
Activation of subtle plot device!Wait, there's a plot?
The glare that wins Sasuke's heart over!
The end.Or is it?
Sasuke can't seem to get enough.
Then it was time for cake!
And we know what goes well with cake.
What're you thinking, Sasuke?
There are other ways to get that cream off Naruto's face, you know.
Sorry, we're not done yet.
Theeeere we go.
RESISTANCE IS FUTILE.
Thaaat's it. Just behave.
WHILE WE DRUG YOU.
Naruto, why do you sleep with a plushie...
...when you can have the real thing?
Uh-oh! The drugs are wearing off!
All better now. Good job, Kat!
An excellent job on making the sleeping cap and doing the drugging.
Kat approves of this union.
So do the Friendly Neighborhood Yaoi Enforcers (not all of whom are in the photo, sadly)
Now let's leave them alone again.
Never really noticed how Jin has fangs somewhat. This gives us... ideas. For next time. O~hohohohoho.
Yeah, reeeeeal sexy thar, Naruto. You ought to know better than to follow after Jigglypuff's example.Jin:
What are you up to THIS time? Why do we have clips and glasses?Miguel:
I feel kinda pretty...
We showed them the reference image and handed them some real SasuNaru doujinshi.Jin:
...And then Sasuke did WHAT?!
That's it, Jin! You got the face right!
Ehhhh... close enough.
So you like playing games, hmm...Naruto:
I won't lose to you!Naruto:
That's okay, dobe. But since I won...Sasuke:
Now we have to go back to bed!Naruto:
I definitely won't lose here!
O~hohohoho we got you!
Looks like they've had just about enough.
A few more treats from the Yaoi Enforcers!
Just click the thumbnails!
