[Trans] 14.02.2011 Love songs’ Blog Update: “Live Report ~Recording Studio~ part 2”

15 Feb

Love songs blog. 14 February. “Live Report ~Recording Studio~ part 2”
14 February 2011. 5:50am

Previously, the live report was cut off halfway, but here we present to you part 2!!

After walking down the really lo~~~~ng corridor

We come to this fashionable waiting room (In the photo: Mr Minazou, sitting in a strangely upright posture) (laugh)
picoodle.com

Mr Minazou, who is rumoured to have gained __kg after coming to LA,

will still lose to me, Sugi. Because I’ve gained 8kg. (><)

Gym facilities ↓↓

picoodle.com

Are present here too!!

And then, there’s also a game centre for relaxation

picoodle.com

Sorry for disturbing your work, Nakano-sensei…

One last photo

picoodle.com

Sitting in the kitchen at the back, stuffing himself with potato chips using both hands

A photo

of Mr Giant Mina (UOU) ….

He looked really content, so we left him alone (laugh)

And then!!

Soon, the well-known Komeda-san,
may come here to talk to us more about the studio (not sure), so look forward to that (^=^)

[Trans] 08.02.2011 Love songs’ Blog Update: The story behind the birth of ayupans

9 Feb

The story behind the birth of ayupans
8 February 2011. 9:51pm

Good evening!

I’m Mayuzumi, or “Zu-Mi-Ma-Yu-” on Twitter.

Firstly, let me introduce myself a little to those who don’t know who I am.

I create goods.

So,

for all those who have questions like

“What goods will come out this time?…”

Or “How did you make this goods?…”

I’ll use this entry to show everyone the making-of story of some goods ♪

I’m sure everyone is aware that

To commemorate 『ayumi hamasaki Rock’n’Roll Circus Tour FINAL ~7days Special~』 DVD release on 30 March,

ayupans dressed in stage costumes will be sold on mu-mo from 18 March onwards!

It’s already become tradition, eh? ヽ(・∀・)ノ♪

And so! This time, we’ll bring you right into the ayupan-making process… ♪

【1】 Creating Illustrations

Firstly… don-san (Yamamoto Nori), who always does ayupan illustrations, will look at the stage costumes and sketch out some drawings.

picoodle.com

Even the sketches of ayupan are so cute ♪

And then, we will decide on things like “Let’s put her in this pose ♪” and “Let’s emphasize this bit!”…

picoodle.com

Illustrations done!!

【2】 Making Models

Next, expert figurine moulders will follow the illustrations to create real ayupan figure models!

These models determine how the final ayupan will look like, so this is a very very important step.

The artist’s skills shine through ☆

picoodle.com

So detailed (≧o≦;)

These are slowly cut out from wax!

【3】 Making Replicas from Silicon Moulds

Next, using silicon moulds, we copy the template model made in 【2】.

picoodle.com

Captions. Top: Silicon. Bottom: Liquid mould flows in from here

Then we pour in liquid mould…

picoodle.com

Caption: Replica

We make 2 replicas!

These replicas are made of a material harder than wax. One of the replicas will go on a journey as a template to create many many more replicas…

The other replica…

【4】 Making Coloured Samples

Is used for sample colouring for the ayupan!!

Following a preset colouring code, the replica is coloured, and final touches are added.

This coloured ayupan will then go on a journey as a sample to the colouring factory.

picoodle.com

※ Welcoming these 3 ayupans on their journey

And then, all the mass-produced figurines will be hand coloured one-by-one,

and many many ayupan figurines are born ♪(o=゜▽゜)人(゜▽゜=o)♪

This is a simplified process, but that’s the story of the ayupan-making-of process that is taking place right now.

All this while… And way into the future too… Many workers had and will create ayupans with love, using their hands.

And on 16 March 4pm, photos of the completed ayupans will be uploaded onto the ayupan special page in mu-mo shop.

Do check it out.

And that was U。・ェ・。U Mayuzumi
