Hello and happy May Day!
Yesterday was the perfect excuse to put on funky clothing, aka cosplay, and go out in town without being stared at like you were from outer space. See, in Finland on 30th April and 1st May there is the celebration of Walpurgis (Vappu in Finnish, Valborg in Swedish) which means that you drink a special drink called sima in Finnish, eat donuts and some people go and get very drunk. But the most appealing point of celebrating Walpurgis is that it's also a sort of carneval/masquerade event and many people dress up and well, if you are a cosplayer then now is the perfect time to go out and have a photoshoot and actually
Eeyup, so for the sake of Walpurgis I threw on an Original Character cosplay and went with Jäätynyt Enkeli and Hasakitsuki to the close-to-the-river shore road. Actually, without us knowing beforehand we arrived just at the time when the Swedes were about to lit the huge May bonfire (tradition in Sweden) so we got to watch it burn – and got a free fire to run and warm up next to after/during the photoshoot because we weren't dressed the warmest and it was pretty chilly. Awesome.
