Versailles tour goods

Won't write too much right now as I just got home from Yokohama, and have barely slept or eaten. But I saw people on my flist wondering about the new shirts and phone straps Versailles are selling during their tour.

front & back

(Old logo, and no "Philharmonic Quintet". Yay!)

We had really good tickets for this live (started out in second row, but were quickly pushed halfway into the front row). I won't be seeing them again until May, and I doubt we'll be able to get this close to the stage at Studio Coast, so I enjoyed it a lot despite how painful Versailles' lives have become (LOTS of male fans in the audience).

Kamijo was going for some sort of record of forgetting lyrics tonight. We had to sing the songs for him so that he'd remember the words. It was particularly bad for The Revenant Choir. (English....)

Hizaki managed to fall off the stage (>__<) I don't think he hurt himself though. Staff helped him up, and when Kamijo asked him if everything was alright, Hizaki just laughed about it.

But altogether a great two and a half hour show :D

*_* the logos on the shirt is lovely...

how did Hizaki fall off the stage? o_o
X_x i hope he's alright...

The shirt surprised me. It's so cute ^^

I was looking at Kamijo when he fell, but I think he simply didn't notice how close he was to the edge of the stage and fell off it by taking a step forwards to where there was nothing to step on ^^; But since he was smiling after getting back up, I don't think there's anything to worry about.

They come up with the coolest tour names, haha.

That shirt is gorgeous! It'd be worth picking up just for the fact that it doesn't have "Philharmonic Quintet" written on it anywhere. The intricate design on the logos (both of them! The butterfly and their old 5-rose "Versailles" one) are really eye-catching. ^o^

I feel like I'm writing a comment on an item on poupeegirl, lol!

The phone strap looked a bit like a pocket watch when I first glanced at it. It's a cute design!

Lol @ Kamijo! I've heard so many stories about him forgetting his lyrics it just doesn't surprise me any more. XD

Hope Hizaki's okay... I don't like hearing about bandmen falling off stages. @o@ I get nervous watching Kamijo during performances since he's always so close/leaning over the stage. I wonder how he doesn't fall over or get pulled into the audience. O_o

Glad to hear the performance went well otherwise. ^^ Get some rest!

I was SO happy to see the stuff didn't have "PQ" anywhere near them.

Kamijo did lose his balance during tonight's live ^^; But he didn't fall. The reason why he doesn't get pulled into the audience is probably because it's not common to do that at Japanese lives. We won't even touch them. We reach out or hands, and then it's up to them whether they want to grab it or not. And I'm pretty sure Hizaki didn't seriously hurt himself. He looked more surprised than in pain, like "What just happened? o_o Where did the floor go?"

These shirts come in 4 sizes. ^o^ Lots of fans should be able to find a size that fits them this time!

I don't know what's going on with Kamijo's lyrics. He wasn't anywhere near this bad at remembering them during Lareine or New Sodmy. Even though some of the songs were old ones he'd been singing for 10 years, there were still lots of recent songs they played and Kamijo only forgot the lyrics maybe 2 or 3 times a year back then. But ever since Versailles started, he's been forgetting stuff at at least 75% of concerts. And it's not like there's one certain part he has trouble with. It's different every time.

Jeanne, that front-and-center area looked really painful to be in, especially when the whole front area was lurching forward during Aristocrat's. o_O It looked like they weren't just bowing, they were actually piling on top of each other. Glad you had fun in spite of it, though!

I think I'll be buying more shirts at the live in May now that they've finally made them wearable ^__^

There were a lot of heads banging into each other during Aristocrat's (and every song that included headbanging) ^^; I have a painful bump on my forehead right now. Can't be helped I guess.
Mar. 26th, 2009 05:56 pm (UTC)
Just Woooow *___*
never saw such pretty merch !
Thanks a billion times to have taken time to post pics !

Dear old Kamijo forgetting his own lyrics....ahhh that makes me nostalgic XD
Huge dresses are dangerous...you never know where you're walking ^^ Might have been quite disturbing to feel that there's only air under your feet suddently >.<;
Mar. 26th, 2009 06:18 pm (UTC)
The shirt really is beautiful <3

I'm glad he didn't twist an ankle or something. He seemed to land on his left leg, so I suppose he could easily have sprained something wearing those tall shoes. He'll probably be a bit more careful at their next live ^^
Mar. 27th, 2009 01:44 am (UTC)
Ou the strap is nice :o I kind of want one.
Mar. 27th, 2009 04:19 am (UTC)
I wonder if they'll ever open up an official (online) goods store, like Kaya. Maybe after they've gone major?
Mar. 27th, 2009 04:21 am (UTC)
That would be cool. If they ship overseas that would be even better cause it's frustrating that Kaya's doesn't. -o-
Mar. 27th, 2009 09:44 am (UTC)
can you believe that, it's snowing in OSLO again....:-(
I'm going to the Japanese ambassy for the speech contest today, this is really bad...
Mar. 27th, 2009 02:37 pm (UTC)
*dead* gaaah now I am dying to have one of those tshirts... I love the one with the butterfly so much.
But it seems I won't be going to Japan in a looong while.
Mar. 27th, 2009 02:57 pm (UTC)
I think most (female) fans find this shirt more appealing than the previous ones from ID Japan. I was positively surprised with the design of a lot of these tour goods in general.
Mar. 28th, 2009 11:32 am (UTC)
Waah D= I'm glad to hear that Hizaki seems to be okay! It would be horrible if he had hurt himself.

It's a little sad that Kamijo forgets his own lyrics ^^'
But good that at least his fans know them *laughs*

The shirts look pretty! I want one (or both '>_>) too~
May I ask which size you bought and how they fit? I might have a chance to get a shirt over a friend who will see them live, so I'd like to know which size would fit me.

I'm so glad to hear that they are releasing two DVDs, a single and have new tour goods, but my wallet definately doesn't approve. Especially not of THREE versions for the single. (u_u')
Mar. 28th, 2009 12:22 pm (UTC)
I'm used to him forgetting lyrics and it just makes me laugh, but it was worse than usual this time. Let's wait and hear how he does tomorrow.

About shirt sizes... How tall are you? The girls fit looks good on the average Japanese girl (petite build, 160cm). I'm 170cm, so I didn't buy this one. The length of the small non-girls fit is fine for me. It's obviously not clinging to my body, but isn't awkwardly big. (I'm 88/62/90)

It's FOUR versions -__- (1 regular + 3 limited). Having the Tokyo part of the tour, both DVDs and these singles all happening in May/June is a bit much. AND now there's the secret lives as well?? D: But at least there's lots of stuff to look forward to, right? ^^; (But ugh, Art Cube are having a spring tour as well .__.)
Mar. 28th, 2009 04:09 pm (UTC)
I'm 172cm, 89/64, so quite close to you. So you'd say even the L of the girl shirts wouldn't fit? I'm horribly broad build and wearing something that doesn't show my waist makes me look like a whale. That's why I don't wear men shirts (except for sports). Do you happen to have a picture of you in the shirts or would mind taking one? ^^'' I really would like to have one, but don't want to look dumb in them.

Ah yes, right! Does the regular version include something the limited don't include? So far I've only heard of the singles to include one song, and the limited each a part of the 15 minutes video. (mean!)
I agree that it's great that they are doing so much, but it's a little too much for my (wallet's) taste. I'd rather them to release a single and a DVD in May, and the other in September or such. But well, it's not as if I wouldn't buy their stuff anyway *sigh*
Mar. 28th, 2009 04:56 pm (UTC)
The four sizes are "girls free", S, M and L. So there's not exactly a "girls L" available ^^; (and I don't have my shirt at hand at the moment, sorry. I'll see if I can take a pic later). But yeah, it definitely won't show off your waist much, so if that's very important for you, it might not be worth getting the shirt.

I haven't heard anything else about the single other than what you just mentioned. If you can't buy all 3 versions containing the PV, I guess one's best choice would be teaming up with a couple of friends (if you have any Versailles fans living near you), get 1 each and watch it together.
I hope this is a one time thing related to their major debut. If they want to make more money by releasing different versions, I'd like it better if they stuck to member specific stuff like before.
Mar. 29th, 2009 03:08 pm (UTC)
Nooo D= I thought it'd be different sizes for girls. The girls shirt might run pretty short, thinking about it.
I'd be very glad if you could!
I'll get a shirt anyway, and if it's just for sports. To show my problems I could take a comparison pic of me once wearing a male's shirt and a girl's shirt.
But I'd like to know if I better order S or M then. I like loose clothes better for sports, so I'd rather get an M, but maybe S doesn't look bad for normal wear... I'm annyoing, I'm sorry ^^'

Member specific versions indeed would be nicer. I'd be glad if they'd stay with one version or one regular and one limited, but if they have to produce several versions, than member specific things would be better than "buy three CDs to get one video".

The shirt.
The shoulders are visibly too wide on me but, as you mentioned having a broad build, it might look a bit better on you.

I think a lot of people will just settle with buying the regular version, and then watch the PV on youtube for free. I don't know what the general crowd overseas thinks about this, but most of my friends here in Japan find this way of releasing it ridiculous (>_<) *sigh* oh well... I'm looking forward to the song.
Apr. 4th, 2009 01:29 am (UTC)
Thank you for the picture!
The shirt looks pretty good on you, maybe I'll just give S a try too.

Probably only the band's management thinks of this as a good idea.
Did you happen to come across shops announcing any specials? Like An Edison, Jishuban Club or something? On CdJapan the regular version seems to include a trading card, the limited ones nothing. Depending on if there are any fancy specials I might order via shopping service from another store, if not I'll stick if CdJapan.
Apr. 4th, 2009 06:31 am (UTC)
It's too early for the stores here to announce their bonuses. We might have to wait until May before a list is posted on Versailles' website. But trading cards usually aren't store spesific bonuses, are they? Trading cards are mostly released with a CD, inside the cover, so it might be included regardless of where you buy it.

I wish I was there!^^ ...and I really want this lady's shirt!!<3<3 ...also I can see there's more people that's happy there's no PQ-thingy there^O^<3
...and 160 cm, that's just perfect^_^ I'm 161 cm

Is the male audience that disturbing?^^;

poor Hizaki and Kamijo^^;
Apr. 6th, 2009 04:33 pm (UTC)
I always loved the old logo with the roses. "Philharmonic Quintet" was supposed to be a "US thing" only, but even some fanclub pictures have that written on them (>_<)

I'm happy male fans feel more comfortable going to lives now, but they're a lot bigger and stronger than the average girls in the audience, so the downside to it is all the pushing and not being able to see the stage if you're not in the front. Fortunately for me, the majority of them tend to gather in front of Hizaki.
Apr. 6th, 2009 06:07 pm (UTC)
I love that older logo to <3

yeah, I seen that on MySpace to, even the Swedish street team there have it>_< I heard it's because Versailles manager told them to have it>_< ...and yea they only need it when selling things/have lives in US.

...maybe they should do something about it, they had separate lives before to get the guys there, maybe they should do something for the girls now...

...It can be much pushing with mostly girls to though^^;
