We DID get married! BANG!
It is my personal affairs, and I got married to Mamoru Kurihara in October 2015 and she is a writer of girls' manga. It is already a year and a half ago.
We are both freelance each other, and we did not have an wedding ceremony or anything like that and have been working lazily, and a year and a half went by very quickly.
Both I and my wife do not care about many things left out unless our motivation raises. Nothing can go on at our pace.
Well, how about taking a cool wedding photo then? Something like "bomb wedding photos" can raise our motivations.

The wedding photos by explosion can be cool
It's cool to watch exploding bang bang bang in the squadron heroes series. It must be super cool if we can take photos of wedding with that as a background. And I heard that there is an event that you can take photos of cosplay with the explosion as a background, and I made an appointment to the organization "COSNAVI" which manages the events.
We met up near the Shibuya station before 7 in the morning. We will move to the Tochigi prefecture to take photos of wedding from now.
I contacted them and asked "is it OK to take wedding photos and not cosplay?" just in case, and I got an easy response "It is the first time like that for us, but it's OK".
Well, the wedding photo is like a cosplay, and there seems to be a big difference.
When we arrive, we get changed
Well, we took the charted bus from Shibuya and arrived at Iwafune-machi of the Tochigi prefecture in like one and a half hour. First of all, we borrowed a large room at the health and welfare center managed by the town and changing cloths time. Basically, as the cosplay requires a very large amount of costumes and time consuming to get changed, it is the basic for cosplay event management to secure enough dressing spaces from the beginning.
We move by by bus after getting changed. We arrive at the place in about 10 minutes.
We see the Iwafune mountain direction from the bus. The arrow shows that the mountain was cut in a V shape clearly at the 3.11 earthquake.
And, those who get changed take the shuttle bus, and finally go to the sacred place of shooting explosion, Mt. Iwafune.
That rocky mountain we watching in the squadron TV series many times.
The sacred place of special effects, Mr. Iwafune
Although Mt. Iwafune had been mined as a quarry from the Edo era but all the stones in the middle part of it were taken, it is now used as the rare "shooting location where you can shoot a blasting scene" in the metropolitan area.
Especially, it is the place too famous for the action scenes of the squadron hero series.
See, you've seen this mountain. This surface of the rock.
Cosplayers started to shoot here and there. It's unusual and I feel dizzy.
From the anime "Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress", two are doing Kanabe (like zombies attacking). The quality is too high, isn't it?
When we arrived, cosplayers who came in the bus before us had already started shooting. And the quality of their cosplay costumes is weirdly high.
Cosplayers of the current squadron hero series "Kyuranger" were lining up for taking photos. I was surprised one moment like "ah, this is not a real shooting?".
I feel like I want to apologize that we are only taking normal wedding photos somehow. I don't know to who.
On the contrary, we are embarrassed that we two are only dressed in normal wedding dresses.
Also, we could not rented them because we use for shooting with explosion. The result was we ended up with the dress and the tuxedo that we found by searching with weak words "wedding dress very cheap".
By the way, the dress was 12,00 yen, and the tuxedo was with 3 pieces and a shirt for 15,000 yen. The cheapest tuxedo on the internet (all for 10,000 yen) had a comment "the fabric was too thin to be transparent" by someone, so I bought the one step higher in price.
But even if it gets water with a water gun, it is very thin that it would get melted.
I wonder how the cheapest tuxedo for 10,000 yen is like.
But only the bouquet that my wife is holding is very specially ordered.
I boasted that "this is a special order made by a eraser manufacturer", and Mr. Ando from the editorial department who is normally unresponsive was unsurprisingly surprised "really".
All the cakes and animals you can see in the flower are eraser. And the top bride and groom and a koala are all original for this bouquet.
A friend of my wife got the information that "the groom is a stationary writer", and asked Iwako the character eraser manufacturer to create the one and only bouquet with a eraser built in in the world.
Anyway, I am aware that it is the boast difficult to be understood, and for the moment, it is OK to understand that it is a masterpiece for eraser collectors and to let it go.
