Yui’s 2019 Review

2019 was full of fun, events, and meeting lots and lots of friends:

Spring

spring

We started the year with the 3rd anniversary of being a Kigu and a long weekend latex retreat away in the country with Skye. I got to ride in a sidecar, drink beer, and play on an inflatable unicorn! I wore a new dress we designed for this event, full of love hearts, made by the awesome folks at Black Sheep Latex.


Next was one of the usual highlights of the year, Yorkshire Cosplay Con. We had fun, we took photos, and even had Spencer Wilding (aka Darth Vader) trying on a kigu mask. He’s so tall! Afterwards we went bowling, which I think was a first for UK kigus? I have kig bowled before in 2018 in Toronto, but did worse this time, coming third, but it was still great fun.


In May we went for a week in Berlin for GFB. The first outing for Travel-Yui. I was able to get in some dancing on the dance floor on the Saturday main ball, then watched the fashion show before heading outside for some cool river air.


Summer

A group of kigus from around the UK met up for a house party. We had an organised trip to the Peak Rail station and got lots of photos with the staff and a steam train. The house was full of inflatable pool toys…. but no pool. I’m not a big fan of water anyway.


Next off to Montreal for Montreal Fetish Weekend for a week of fun events kigging with some old and new friends. I wore my new Sakura themed pink dress and we walked the fashion show catwalk. I was a little nervous and so ended up forgetting all my practiced walk. We also took a walk around Montreal, taking the Metro into the centre. We surprised the locals and tourists with a few hundred people in the most amazing latex and fetish outfits. For the main event I took the Sakura dress with LED skirt overlay to the dance party.



In the past I’ve experimented with 3D video and this year I bought a VR camera so we could make some kigu content for VR headsets. I published a few of these on YouTube (so if you have a VR headset like an Oculus or even a PSVR you can find the videos in YouTube and watch them). Most of them are stereo 180 3D VR (although a few are mono 360).

Autumn

Autumn started with another long latex weekend away in the country with Skye and another hotel for us to help run. I found this vintage ambulance perfect for with my nurse outfit. I’m not sure why but everyone said they started feeling ill and in need of nurse attention.


Then in November the Glasgow Anime event, Raicon.  I took my new lolita-style dress bought from Souffle Song and met up with some old and new friends.


Winter

And, just like that, 2019 was nearly over. Just time to fit in a weekend event with a couple of dozen European kigus in Derbyshire. There were castles, weddings, fireworks, and even a mention of us in the local newspaper.

Not much streaming on cam this year, although I did a Christmas Day live present unwrapping to make up for it.

We hope 2019 was good to you too. We’ve lots of fun things planned for 2020 including some overseas events.

On behalf of both myself and Jade we wish you peace and prosperity for 2020.

MFW 2019

Off to Montreal for Montreal Fetish Weekend, but it was more like a whole week of fun events. I got to kig with some old and new friends.

I wore my new Sakura themed pink dress and we walked the fashion show catwalk. I was a little nervous and so ended up forgetting all my practiced walk and did a really quick cat”run” instead.

We took a walk around Montreal, taking the Metro station into the centre. I think we suprised the locals and tourists with a few hundred people in the most amazing latex and fetish outfits. I really enjoyed the walk, it was a nice day with a gentle breeze and everyone wanted to stop us for photographs. I wore my blue kawaii latex dress for the walk.

For the main event I took the Sakura dress with LED skirt overlay to the dance party. We arrived early and quickly headed to the dancefloor where we danced the night away. When we went outside to cool off we met some latex models including Biana.

I really enjoyed my time in Montreal, the people were so friendly, and I’d love to go back some day.

GFB Week 2019

In May 2019 we went to the German Fetish Ball week in Berlin. I kigged at one event, the main ball on Saturday night, and it was a lot of fun. Before it got too busy I was able to get in some dancing on the dance floor, then watched the fashion show before heading outside for some cool river air.

It was amazing to spend time with old and new kigurumi friends. I’ve already booked for next year!

Summer Meet 2019

This summer a few friends met up in Derbyshire for a fun weekend of kigging and sight-seeing. Jade had organised a visit to the Peak Rail station and we got to get photos with the staff and a steam train. We’d have liked to have ridden the train too but we didn’t have enough time so instead we just took some photos, explored, and had ice cream. The station staff were so friendly and helpful to us and all wanted photos.

Back at the house, Yuna and Xelphie had brought over a selection of inflatable animals, they were so squeeky and hugable! I particularly liked the shark and I think I’ll have to buy one of my own soon.

There are also YouTube videos in 3D VR of us playing on the pool toys, see my channel

Yorkshire Cosplay Con 2019

Yorkshire Cosplay Con is one of the highlights of the year. It’s a great con; a nice size with lots to see and do, a great crowd, and accepting organisers. This year was no different and so we had a really large crowd of nearly 20 of us; with kigus attending from all over the UK, Europe, and even the USA.

We played, we took photos, we had fun, we had Spencer Wilding (of Darth Vader fame) asking to try on a kigu mask, and we even went bowling which I think is a first for UK kigus? I didn’t do so well at bowling this time, came third, but it was still great fun.

J-Con 2018

We went down to Derby for J-Con in August 2018. This was a really fun con. On the Friday evening I wore the Magical Latex Girl outfit with my new LED skirt and got to dance to some great live music from Nyokee.

On Saturday my new girl, Coconut from Nekopara, made her first public appearance. It was great being recognised, everyone loves a catgirl.

Paris 2018

In August 2018 we visited Luka in France and had a fun weekend hanging out around the pool. Luka even said she’d be the maid and comb my hair and make tea, but she was far too mischievous and spilt the tea and went to rest in the hammock.

You just can’t get the staff these days.

Anime North 2018

We went to Anime North and the #WesternWasshoi in May 2018. There was lots of off-con fun and con fun with trips and bbq and bowling and more. The time flew by and it was all over before we knew it. It was great to meet so many kigs I’ve been on cam with and talked to over the years but never met.

  • We went to the park and had a BBQ
  • We went bowling and I took my Magical Latex Girl outfit and a 3d printed bowling necklace for good luck
  • Wore my Sega vs Hard Girls IF outfit to AN
  • Went to a butterfly garden
  • Visited Niagra Falls. It was so how here, 35C and very busy
  • Did a swimsuit shoot by the pool
