Tokyo's 'My Little Pony' Cafe Opens!

Attention, all Bronies and Pegasisters! There is a brand new themed pop-up cafe in Japan that you're sure to be excited about - one dedicated solely to 'My Little Pony'!

Set up inside breakfast bistro Sunday Jam of Tokyo's Harajuku district, the 'My Little Pony' Cafe offers specialty coffees, toasted sandwiches, and desserts all finished off with edible designs featuring the iconic toy ponies.

I know, Pinkie Pie. I'm excited too.

The 'My Little Pony' Cafe, of course, has a dazzling themed interior and is sometimes visited by popular 'My Little Pony' costumed characters and real miniature ponies. (Like, seriously, guys. Check out that middle photo. There's actual baby horses at this cafe.)
Unfortunately, all good things come to an end, and the 'My Little Pony' Cafe is only staying open until November 29th.
However, if you find yourself in Tokyo before then, you can find this magical little shop at the following address: 4-28-28 Jingumae, Shibuya 150-0001, Tokyo Prefecture. (And if you go, take ALL THE PICTURES for the rest of us on Vingle, of course.)

Would you go to the 'My Little Pony' Cafe? Or is that far too much pink and ponies to be caught dead around?

Let me know in the comments below, and for more strange yet surprising news, follow The WTF Street Journal!

Eiichiro Oda and Hajime Isayama Show Support After Kumamoto Earthquakes
If you missed the news lately, the Kumamoto Prefecture in Kyushu, Japan was recently hit with a series of earthquakes, the foreshock on April 14th and the mainshock on April 16th. The earthquakes reached a magnitude of 7 on the Richter scale and have devastated the communities of the Prefecture and surrounding area, including as far away as the Ōita prefecture. 48 people have been confirmed dead, while thousands more have been hospitalized with injury. Over 40,000 people have been evacuated from their homes as a result of the quakes. The image you see above is a message penned by Eiichiro Oda, the mangaka responsible for One Piece. Kumamoto is Oda's hometown and so he felt personally attached to plights of the people there. The official One Piece twitter tweeted that image of a hand-drawn Luffy and Kumamon, the official mascot of the prefecture. Here's what it says in English: There was a big earthquake in Kumamoto. (all of Kyushu) I was born in Kumamoto, it's my hometown. To those who were greatly affected by the damage, I hope you're doing well from the bottom of my heart. I was able to directly contact my family and friends, but they're all very scared. But they're doing their best. Everyone I got in touch with said things to put me at ease. They're so tough!! But there is a limit to how long people can steel themselves. Before that thread breaks, I want to calm them down somehow. It's crucial that adults don't worry their kids. Most of all, I want to make kids laugh! If they laugh, adults can do their best! It's still hard now for ordinary people to lend a hand, but I will definitely help with the relief effort. Stay strong, however you can!! Oda was not the only member of the One Piece team to speak up in support of the earthquake victims, however. The voice actors for the Straw Hat Pirates also lent their voices to support Kyushu. Ikue Ohtani (Chopper), Kazuya Nakai (Zoro), Akemi Okamura (Nami), Yuriko Yamaguchi (Robin), Kazuki Yao (Franky), Kappei Yamaguchi (Usopp), and Mayumi Tanaka (Luffy) each have promised to do their bests to help the victims in some way or at least encourage them to stay strong and happy. Each of them signed the board above as a gesture of support for the struggling civilians. The Strawhats weren't the only anime/manga stars to lend their voices to the effort, though. Hajime Isayama, the mangaka for Attack on Titan is also from close to the affected region: Hita in Ōita Prefecture. Isayama also contributed a drawing as support for the victims. It shows Eren, Mikasa and Armin with Kumamon and Mejiron, Ōita Prefecture's bird mascot. Isayama wrote on his blog accompanying the image: "When times have been tough for me, even under very harsh circumstances, I'm reminded of manga heroes who fight for their lives, and I remember that they toughed it out. I drew the illustration with those feelings." Though these artists can't do a whole lot in terms of helping on the ground level with the victims, they have chosen to lend their support in the best ways they have available to them; their art. It shows a passion for their homes and their people, and the will of the nation that rallies strongly around their own in times of crisis.
Rainbow Dash Wigs Extravaganza!
I'm not a huge My Little Pony fan anymore, but I do have to say I love the cosplays that I've seen out of the series! My favorite two to see are Fluttershy and Rainbow Dash, but when it comes to impressive wigs, it's Rainbow Dash that I really love seeing! The multi-colored wigs that are usually paired with the cosplays (to match RD's mane and tail!) are so impressive. I'm not sure if people typically buy them or add in the multi-color wefts themselves, but either way, the end result is SO pretty! I found some of the explanations by cosplayers about how they made their wigs so included it below, too! Cosplayers: 1: http://flying-fox.deviantart.com/ "The wig was airbrushed with Liquitex Liquid Acrylics in several stages and coats to prevent the colors of the rainbow from mixing with each other. I wanted to get a nice pastel rainbow effect to the wig, so the main option was to hand dye it myself. The jareth was a great choice for how spiky and full her hair is, and I love the quality of the wig. It styles very easily, and I had to do almost no styling to achieve her "spiky" look here." 2: http://ellyana-cosplay.deviantart.com/ 3: http://danishahorusso.deviantart.com/ 4: http://pixiekitty.deviantart.com/ "I hand colored a white wig with Sharpie markers, the feathers are colored with blue floral spray, and the necklace is made from cardboard! Ears are made from Paper Clay. " 5: http://burloire.deviantart.com/ 6: http://flying-fox.deviantart.com/ again! This photo taken by @yenra!
