SMILE album


Last Updated: 02-15-2006

When L'Arc~en~Ciel releases its SMILE album in 2004 and my friends and I got our grubby little hands on the album we were amused by the cardboard boxes the band wore on their heads throughout the album booklet and we decided to "make" the costume. In my case, this entailed wearing a dark blue suit and white button down shirt I already had, buying a tie similar to the one tetsu wears in the booklet and painting a carboard box yellow and slapping some electrical tape on there..voila L'Arc costume. Later on I added a wig.

It was so simple, but a blast to wear and good way to find fellow L'Arc fans at cons. That year L'Arc peformed at Otakon and we traveled across the country to be there.. my 4-person group wore our costumes one of the days and Japanese L'arc fans took pictures, one selected member of the group had a fangirl following and some poor girl actually mistook us as the band. Good times!
