Almost Nearing the End of 2018

Heya it's been a while

I'm not active on livejournal these days.

Maybe mostly because of a changing on my main fandom. While for actually I've never really been in a fandom... like what other people think of what being in a fandom is like...

Well that was confusing.... Haha
So, for more easily is I am more of an observer, and I see posts (tumblr) or tweets (twitter) but don't really interact with them. I tend not to follow people or let people follow me, unless after a few conversation I feel like what they say etc is a match for me. I always keep small circle of fandom friends mostly. And if I said I kinda move fandom, well it's because I started following other artists and more invested in watching their videos, musics, etc and making comments of them by myself (like tweeting it on twitter but not really care if ppl read/reply them) or to my close friends only (which I know in real life, school friends, and they are currently liking the same group as me :D)

So, that's all probably...

But I'll be posting more crafts or maybe book reviews in the future... No one knows, neither I knows 😬

A New Year

Hi there! So, lots of things had happened in 2017 and I think I was going to post some of my exploding boxes videos, well, I think I would not post it again in here, so please just check my youtube account: hikari lyra :D
I have another video about exploding box to be uploaded, and an unboxing of arashi ayh LE and RE DVD, yep I know it's super late but this fandom is running out of intl (eng) videos about unboxing lol. The DVD is my friend's and I'm just posting it in my youtube account so ppl who are curious can see how the insides looks like!

That's all, and happy new year people! 

Birthday Exploding Box!

I made this exploding box for my friend's birthday, southview (Happy BIRTHDAY!) and took a sky themed exploding box. The outer appearence has a vintage look and when you open the box, the first layers will greet you with stars and quotes on the bottom of the box and on the inside of the lid.

The second layers are for the photos, I haven't put them on when I took the pics and the videos, but the decorations were already finished by then. The 2nd layer has the sky theme too, where I took an image from the kimi no na wa sky (because that anime aesthetics is so damn NICE), a raining days pic because life has its rainy days, also a blue clear sky and the last is an yellow-geenish-bluish sky filled with air ballons, although you can't see the air balloons clearly because on that pic I put an arashi Are You Happy themed frame XD.
Well, so much for the explanations, here's the video, enjoy :D

Are You Happy? Limited Edition - It's Finally Here!!!

So I'm currently listening to AYH LE that has finally came to my arms, I'M SO HYPED WHEN I RECIEVED IT XD

I ordered on 10 September 2016, it arrived just yesterday, 14 January 2017. It has been almost like 4 months since I paid for it and like 2 and a half months since the album released in Japan HAHAHA. Their concert has already ended, but I'm glad that it's finally here :")

I did not listen to the album at all when it was released, the new songs I've been listening is Nino's solo (LIKE 40 TIMES ALREADY AND I LOVE IT SO MUCH) and I think I listened to miles away once, but now I've mostly forgotten how it sounds like... Praise me for being such a patient fangirl (WAHAHAHA. Ah, and I also have listened to Don't You Get It and watched the PV (I couldn't help myself, which arashian could anyway?), and ofc, I've already listened to Ai wo Sakebe, Fukkatsu Love, I seek, and Daylight multiple times.

Happy 22th Birthday Yuzuru Hanyu!

“Efforts will lie, but will never be in vain” - Yuzuru Hanyu

Happy 22th Birthday Yuzu! Thank you for all the strength you’ve given to people through your hardwork and performances. You inspire a lot of people, please keep doing that from now on and forever! (≧ヘ≦ )

(P.S. and may you be always breaking world record XD)
I've just realized that all of my recent posts are filled with edits, pictures, or short messages.... Ahahaha, well, college is sure is a busy place (and I spend a lot of my time fangirling so,....) I'll try to post a book or maybe movie/drama review sometimes, or make an crafting article again, since I have a lot of crafting ideas in my mind (I made an exploding box a few weeks ago XD), so maybe a crafting post as soon as my finals are over XD

Cover Song: A.Ra.Shi

This was my collaboration with Xandra for arashi's 17th anniversary back in 3 November. She covers the rap, while I cover the vocal. And such a coincidence, 3th of November is the day when arashi released their first single, A.Ra.Shi! (well, I think it's an coincidential decision that we cover this song for that day, LOL).
So, here's the cover song:

A.RA.SHI covered by southview and hika_lyra (Team Orenjii).
Vocal covered by Lyra and rap covered by Xandra.
Recorded via Smule.

Ah, this was posted on her livejournal and also on our tumblr teamorenjii :D

(P.S. Such a coincidence that today's riida birthday! Happy birthday Riida! Okaasan, thank you for always giving birth to him! XD)

Happy Officially 5x17!

So, it's already November huh? Time sure flies by so fast!
17 years ago on this date, Arashi released their very first single, A.RA.SHI. And since then, this date has become their official anniversary date!

This is my first time ever making a fanart for Arashi fandom XD

And this will sounds so damn cheesy but,...
Happy officially 17 years old my beloved group! Please always be our five colored rainbow that appears during the storm XD ahaha


To sum it up

Basically a post about reasons why I love Nino

My ichiban is Nino, because he's such a wonderful sarcastic brat XD
Ahaha, because he is so damn good in acting that I fell in love with him, such a heart-warming and worth-squealing romantic, and he do magic tricks! Who doesn't love magic XD ahahaha
And his songs tells a lot of stories from their lyrics, and I love songs that tell stories :D
So, that's why I love Nino <3

(I made those edits for Nino's 33th birthday, I feel like posting it here too, so here it is!)

嵐 5x17!

It was started in Hawaii, 17 years ago, on September 15th, 1999. And look how far you have made it...
Sometimes when I look at how you guys made it this far by all of those hard works, I feel ashamed that I sometimes do not give my best in some certain things. Although it kinda sting, thank you for reminding me that I should do the best that I could in every aspects in my life.
Thank you for your hard works for 17 years, thank you for the happiness that you give to us, and thank you for inspiring a lot of people! Please keep doing those magic that amaze people and touch their hearts!
