    I keep thinking back to 10+ years ago when Velvet Eden and Blam Honey restarted activities and the revival seemed so potent and now... Dada is making tights and Ryonai is selling overpriced... nightmare material? It all kinda just fell apart huh...

    Do you have the tweets by any chance ? I couldn't find them unfortunately.

    Tbh I can't fault them because I can't imagine them paying the bills with niche music sales. I think they took the best decision on the long run. I just wish Ryonai would've released a bit more though.

    I really hope Dada and Kalm can team up again for some kind of project in the future. As much as I enjoyed the VE revival it didn't really compare.

    This was Dada right after the elections:

    Anyway he's still using FB all the time.

    Calling all Velvet experts: does anyone know just when that fateful cosplay competition was that Dada won?

    Are you referring to the Mothra-esque cosplay he did?

    If so, the exact date was March 3, 2001. The "Night of Mothra," it was called. :)

    If you're referring to the lobster claw outfit, that was October 31, I believe the same year, 2001. At the event "PARANOIA HALLOWEEN PARTY."

    No, I mean the original one where he dressed as the Dada-seijin. You know, his superhero (supervillain) origin story XD
    I presume it must have been sometime before starting Velvet Eden.

    Ah. THAT one. 1996, so definitely pre-VELVET EDEN.

    But do we know when in 1996?

    I'm trying to figure out how many of his collaborators knew him as anything other than "That guy in the tights" going in ::meev::

    Well he is pursuing the plus-size market, so one could say that keeping his business in the tights is very much a priority.

    I'm checking with DADA to see if he remembers the exact date of the cosplay contest back then, but an interesting bit of information from him, he was almost disqualified from the contest because his cosplay wasn't from a band, but he ended up winning the HIDE award for the event anyway. So they must have been impressed with it nonetheless. :)

    Wouldn't DADA have been with Pride of mind at this point (1996)? That would be interesting to see if he was with them during the time this event took place. I believe E-TYP was in 1997 right before he joined VELVET EDEN, so I doubt he was with E-TYP then.
