Ok that's dealt with....I was really looking forward to seeing the Italian dj siblings, Vinai live on stage. This is the first time I ever seen djs who are not my friends, however Vinai are friends of my friends....confusing yet? I was excited yet nervous for that night flying solo and being unique from clubbing crowds. However I continued being unique. I burrowed the vest from a Miku store bought cosplay paired it with shorts contained one of my cross stitch poke-pixel patches plus lacy gloves for the basic cosplay-stylish look and then the hard part/magic. Covered my cheek and arms in body paint! It took 1 1/2 hours to get all the make up on and not counting the manicure I did.
|Mostly Rainbow Honey was used....Green: Calama and the Glitter Overlay: Underwater World. The green stars glows under UV light.|
As for the actual event....wow first up was TyDi. I didn't know him before hand but I was loving what I was hearing and he was such a sweet guy interacting with the crowds with friendly mannerisms. His style is more trance like and "softer" in compare to Vinai but I liked it and it was a pleasant surprise. He even dropped a few treats by dropping unreleased tracks for the Vancouver to listen for the first time. Nice and tidy....haha you knew I was going to drop that pun.
TyDi's Unreleased Track dropped for the first time.
Even a Robo Stilt-Walker joins in. I was freaked out by the sound of his Co2 gun and the fact it can blast off my make up.
Then TyDi leaves the decks, the lights dim (didn't I just see two pairs of feet sneak by???), the music built into emotions, in sync with the futuristic visuals of launchpad spelling out V-I-N-A-I ...then POOOF it's the Vinai brothers popping up behind the decks opening with "Louder" So epic!!! Oh I waved my flag in time with the music with alot of passion and screaming "Italia!" at the same time...I really love Italian dance music. Oh the set was awesome with surreal/sci-fi visuals (was that the orb from Guardians of the Galaxy???), energetic, bouncy tracks ( yep the floor was bouncing with Bounce Generation), aww they played Frontier in the closing and some tracks that brought back childhood memories in new forms...namely Darude's Sandstorm and Eiffel 65's Blue. During the set Vinai tells everyone to get their iphones out to create a field of stars for an emotional bit. Well I don't own an Iphone (no interest or use)...I did have something else and in a slight show of video-gaming pride....I whip out my still switched on Nintendo 3DS XL!!! HAHAH that is so hilarious and empowering at the same time....in a sea of Iphones...there is one 3DS rising.
Well at the end, i was lucky enough to get autographs from them....I had the flag I was waving signed! Plus I got to shake hands with one of them (I think he was smiling at me during the set cause he eyes was on my flag)....he is so sweet! I told the Vinai brothers, my friends (who are also their friends) said many good things about their music so I wanted to hear it live...then it came out as happy emotions from there. I trying to say this while hopping up and down a glass barrier the same height as me! The Vinai brother smiled and looked at that comment.I feel so thankful to everyone staff and djs included who were nice to the little Martian. :)
|Here it is Vinai's autograph next to the Djs From Mars. It's a little water damaged from the rain but Vinai's autograph is still visible. I wish to have this flag covered with autographs from my favorite, Italian Djs.|
