That’s hot… I like that
I’m guessing it would be pointless to speculate as to why she’s wearing a maid costume and, inconsistently, hipster glasses …
what the hell was that?!
why does she know how to do this and whats the purpose?!
She’s just playing around with electronics to make this Furby do
something it wasn’t intended to do. Its what hardware geeks do. They
hack things just to do it for fun. Found out she’s also a gamer, a musician and
photographer, among other things, using pop culture and a lot of moe concepts.
That partly explains the maid outfit while hacking the Furby.
This is the most annoying thing I’ve ever seen. This chick seems like a massive tool.
You’ve obviously not been around the Internet very long then.
“Girl gamers” usually are a bunch of try hards. Instead of trying to dispel the lies that only men play video games on a feminist level, they instead play up conventional stereotypes of what male gamers perceive what women should be. Instead of having a serious discourse about feminism it turns into a downward spiral of “LOOK AT ME! LOOK AT ME!”
There is some truth to this statement but the problem is that in almost every case, the attention whores will overshadow the meaningful discussions started by other females. I’ve seen plenty of the real discourse you mention but most sites don’t really pick up on that sort of content, unfortunately.
This girl is definitely attention whoring with the whole maid outfit pandering but I’ll at least give her credit for using it more as a gimmick while she pursues other fields instead of relying on it as her only real merit (like many cosplayers or shallow “girl gamers”).
Wow, have you ever talked to a woman without handing her your credit card?
She isn’t doing any work at all. It’s just a pretty good work of EDITING.
Is she single? Smart chicks are hot.
Y’all are trying wayyyyy too hard to analyze this.
Who cares about anything else, she looks good.
Julie Watai, it seems she’s an Otaku Idol who quite knowledgeable about anime, manga, gadgets, technology and the place of it all, Akihabara. SHE’S PERFECT!
I would have loved Akiba in the 80’s when it was a place for cheap electronics and not infested with animu freaks and life long virgins.
Ahh – some fluffy relief from the topical strains.
