Heterochromia - The room chronicles: Move along. Nothing to see here…

The room chronicles: Move along. Nothing to see here…

What defines an otaku’s room? A wallpaper of bishoujo posters/wallscrolls? A bookshelf full of manga/dojinshi? Figurines resting on every available flat surface? Or simply the non-existence of style? My fellow co-bloggers have shown varying stages of otakudom. You could call my room as being threadbare of all signs of otakudom a.k.a a closet otaku. You be the judge.

Here be bed
I share the room with my granny, so it’s cramped enough as it is. As you can see, I have no use for a blanket or “daikamaru”. Also, clothes make good blinds.

Here be computer
Can you tell that I love black? My 5.1 speaker stand has been converted to a hat rack, since I no longer use them. I use my monitor headphones instead. (If you’re wondering, there’s 7 fitted/trucker caps, 5 flat caps and 1 fedora. I’m always in a headgear of sorts when I’m outside)

Here be bags and erm.. stuff
My storage gear; work bags, sling bags, travel bags and a hardcase. (The black melds it all together)

Here be treasure
Being a closet otaku, most of the stuff is in the closet, inside the CD rack,…

Dig here for loot
…and underneath the bed, in boxes. DVDs are scattered in the living room TV cabinet.

Wheels of steel
Underneath the camouflaged table cloth lies an old acquaintance, the Technics SL1200. I only listen to tunes once in a while. My DJ-ing days are behind me now.

Milkcrate
Two crates of vinyls for some warm tunes. Covers from hip hop to hardcore, disco to drum & bass and everything in between.

Not much to look at eh? But at least a girl won’t retch at first sight of the room. :P

    Wouh! I approve of the headphones and the orange boxes/CD rack (I suppose?). Actually, I want those!

    You really are such a closet otaku, ehehe.

    Hats and vinyls? You, sir, are actually a bit of a don.

    So clean and nice. I don´t dare to look under my bed, I might get attack by something that´s been living down there…

    The bed reminds me of dorm room furniture but everything else looks cool. I like those little orange things a lot.

    @Sasa & caitlin: Thanks for the compliment. (Yay. The ladies love the room. :D) The orange CD racks were from bought from IKEA. It looked a lot better when my room was painted blue.

    @IKnight: Erm, what’s a don? The only don I know is Don Corleone. It better not mean a chav. You brits and your uppity slang. :P

    @ritchan: Not quite Malaysia. It’s the country south of the border.

    @Manga: Well, a bachelor’s concept of clean is rather subjective. :P Also, I haven’t checked/cleaned underneath the bed for quite some time. Who knows what else crawled and died down there.

    Ha ha, I’ll actually be moving soon and there’ll be much more space… now that normally would have called for more posters and junk, but there will be less this time around. I’m thinking of making my room less “otaku”.

    And I want to have a go on that DJing gear. My friend’s getting into it and I always wanted to try.

    @Martin: Thanks man. I’d paint my walls black too if I could, but that’s too… emo.

    @Os: I’ve always wanted a room to myself. That way, I can finally unleash my style. Good luck with your re-decorating. :D

    As for DJ-ing, perhaps you could try the CDJ series if you have loads of CDs. Coz if you wanna start from scratch with vinyl, say goodbye to your anime expenditure. :P Do check out FinalScratch if you want the best of both worlds.

    @blissmo: oh kaaaay.

    I wrote a post largely subverting the notion of the Otaku Room Post, but I realised it sort of alienates my entire demographic.

    Can an Otaku Room truly be depicted with all its memories in a blog post? Maybe it can, maybe it can’t. I don’t even know anymore.

    *sigh* I’m going to MY room to sulk in broken dreams.
