When it comes to beauty tips*, fashion, health nutrition and trends from practical to glamorous~artistic there are countless publications available in Japan which are most wonderful, and FRAU for its price and content is definitely recommended reading!! Guest features from experts and models alike are cover~to~cover and Mmmm…whom could be gracing the October cover of FRAU??…..AKB of course =)! When I think of AKB I first think of seifuku♥….no lingerie…..seifuku….bikinis well really AKB fashion is so so much more ne~!
This issue features cover girls Yuko & Acchan! and we get a most artistic look with Yuko, Mayuyu, Yukirin, Sae & Tomo as they emulate an imaginative look from everything from a tulip to a chihuahua (I’m always tempted to write “chiw~ow~w~ow” :P!) and love those backgrounds!! FRAU is a quite large magazine so it doesn’t even fit on my scanner so in creating these images I needed to leave out some of the edges on either side of each page so sadly part of the images are missing here but I just don’t know how you’d scan something larger than the area of your scanner….?
On a sad note I think my scanner is hating me as notice that white line which is going vertically above?…..I don’t know what’s causing this but it’s only begun appearing recently but it’s in every scan now =/. My scanner also has a sense of humor it seems as it likes to sometimes scan images with crooked text…….it’s most bizarre as the photo is perfectly straight and yet only the text is appearing at an odd angle all on its own it seems….. :O Well with Christmas♥ shopping now’s surely not the time to invest in a new scanner so for now please excuse these odd issues and if anyone has any ideas of how to remedy either of these strange issues please do help~♥!
An example of the crooked text (the text on the original article is perfectly straight) which my scanner does all on its own can be seen in the scan above/right…..for the Acchan text my scanner refuses to scan the text straight and I’ve closed and re~started my scanning program repeatedly over and over and yet it always appears this ↑↑↑ way =(. Really really strange and maybe I just need a new scanner although this HP scanner isn’t very old now =/….
