Shattered-Tranquility.net is always wanting to bring fans together by creating a space to interact and to enjoy visual kei together! Well, the Big Ern is here today bringing you another special feature that we’ve added to the site!
My VK Room / Space
In this feature, we want you to send us a photo and a description of the visual kei that you have deocrating your room, or special space! Pimp your room out to me!
To get the ball rolling, our very own staff member, amenitygain, has graciously shared the visual kei section of her room with us. I’d show you mine, but it’s much too much too personal.
Hi, my name is Amenity Gain. I have been a visual kei fan for ten years. My first bands were Miyavi, Dir en Grey, and X-Japan. My favorite band is D. I’m 23 years old, and I live in the Seattle area, in the United States. I enjoy the simple things in life, work two jobs, and enjoy cosplaying, and singing. Jrock has been a big part of my life for such a long time. I honestly can’t imagine my life without it. It’s been a long road, with lots of heartbreak, but at the same time, lots of happy moments. Visual kei is something that I don’t think I will ever stop loving.
Photos will enlarge.
What band or bands are featured in your room?
The band featured in my room is D. I will probably be adding my other jrock magazines onto the other parts of my wall, but right now, I only have D.
What visual kei item in your room is your favorite?
It’s really hard to pick just one item as my favorite. I love all of my items, but if I absolutely had to pick one, I would probably pick my signed birthday card.
Anything special in your room?
I have a signed birthday card by D. Ruiza wrote “Happy Birthday” on it, and Hide-Zou wrote my name on it. This was given to me by a friend of mine, and I had no idea that she was going to do it. I also have my ticket from D’s Major Debut Concert, which is special to me because it was the first time I saw them in concert, and it was in Japan. The ticket is from 2008, but I couldn’t bare to throw it away. It’s too precious! I also have a Die autograph from the first time I saw Dir en grey, back in 2007, at WaMu theatre in Seattle. It’s really special to me, because it was the first time meeting a jrocker, and it was also the first time going to a rock concert.
Anything else you’d like to add?
I just, really like D, hahaha. This was collected over the years, and I love my collection. I also have a guitar pick that Ruiza threw at me at Akon of last year, which is not pictured, but it is in my room. I have my bookshelf pictured, which has anime as well on it, but I figured it would be too difficult to crop those out, so I just took a picture of the entire thing. My cd+dvd collection includes more than just D. I have bands like Versailles, Gilltia, Pan-d- ra, Hizaki Grace Project, Klaha, and many others. I also have my magazine collection, consisting of many issues of Cure, Fool’s Mate, and Shoxx. A few photobooks, vinyl syndicates, and mad tea party magazines are also present on my bookshelf.
Pretty sweet, right? Thanks amenitygain for sharing your room with us!
