♡ The Making of DIY Itasha Volkswagen New Beetle ~Rainbowholic Kuruma-chan~ ♡

Since the video is taking forever to be edited, I figured I should just go with just the photospam itself first~!   :pink:

If you have no idea about this Rainbow car project, you should go here and here first! Or watch the Rainbow ruckus video  :cute2:   :tongue:

When will I ever upgrade to Finalcut or Adobe Premiere?? *lazy Kaila*

:dead:

   

My brother’s White New Beetle from months ago…

Looks very plain but still cute! ^^

While my brother was in the Philippines canvasing for reflector sticker sheets (these are super expensive in Japan), I started designing the Itasha car.

One VERY HOT day, I took measurements of the car + tried my best in drawing.

Here is what it looks like with simple / original / not-so-BADASS  wheels + photoshop !

I tried photoshop-ing the design but it was taking a lifetime already so I opted for the pen and paper!

I feel like a real car designer = )))))

I feel so pro naming my drawings “fig. 1” even though I know I should be probably using another term for it. Hahaha~

White New Beetle getting a shower~

Sleazy eyes lol

Please stay like that for a long time! : ))

And then it rained after. TRUE STORY :O :O

Rainbowfication!

This is Rainbowholic’s biggest KAWAII D.I.Y.!! And I didn’t do everything on my own because I had my family and friends to help me out. Thank you Kuya Eric, Ate Claire & Ate JL!!

It took us one whole evening just for that rainbow strip! Still not used to it.. :O

I was the one in-charge of cutting the strips while my brother carefully put the stickers on.

Two nights and sunrises later, we progressed so much!

I wasn’t able to take more “progress photos” but I promise I’ll show you the drastic formation with the video! ^^

:happy:

From Japan to the WORLD!

スタート!

We filmed at Harajuku and Shibuya. I was the one taking photos / videos while my brother was driving.

A not-so-sharp photo..  an attempt in panning! 😀

In front of the iconic SHIBUYA 109 building.

There were many on-lookers!!

Nothing beats the feeling of being able to make someone smile~! ^_^

In front of Harajuku Eki at Omotesando Exit.

Photographed by my brother

One of my favorite photos. So nostalgic!

 At Takeshita Dori~

It makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside whenever I reminisce the nights we slaved for this car…

大変だったよ~!It was so hard and I was attacked by mosquitos! I almost cut my own fingers while making the patterns for this! -_-

When lit up, everything glows! 🙂

:happy:

To those who have cheered us on from the past few months until now, thank you thank you thank you!!! We appreciate it a lot  :heart:

This is just  another start of a super Rainbowholic (domination)! Please do continue to support us in our future projects ^^v

From Japan To The World,

Rainbowholic カイラ
