Some Favorite Images From Momoko’s Photobook
I had a dream of Saki last night. She and another girl - who I can’t remember but was also an idol - came over for dinner. At one point I became brave enough to kiss Saki on the cheek, which caught her by surprise but not in a bad way. Later, as we ate, she mentioned her heart belonged to another, or something else equally poetic that conveyed she was in love.
Why I had this dream about Saki, I don’t know. But I figured I’d share this because I don’t have dreams about idols very often. It isn’t the kind of dream that transforms my opinion of her, the way my dream of Mikitty did a couple years ago. If anything, I’m baffled since I can think of at least three other Berryz I’d rather dream about first. That said, the relatively chaste nature of all my idol dreams continues, which perhaps speaks volumes about my psyche…
Anyway, I hadn’t seen any torrents with full scans of the book, nor any blog entries with anything beyond preview shots. So to make up for this a little, I figured I’d share some pages, perhaps even persuade some of you to buy your own copies after taking in all this peachy goodness.
I like this shot because of her legs. They have a nice, chunky quality here which is accentuated by the grey socks and clunky shoes.
A beautiful shot of Momoko with her lacrosse stick. Actually, the best lacrosse shot has her jumping up in the air, which it turns out I didn’t scan but should have and may well do so in the near future.
Far and away, my favorite pictorial from this photobook is for this outfit. The bikini isn’t too showy, and the grey top adds a sense of modesty that I appreciate.
As a result, the outfit flatters her body while taking into account her age and idol persona.
While I can appreciate some of the other swimsuits in the photobook - and I do, believe me - this is the one I just enjoy without feeling critical in any matter. It’s just a very nice outfit worn by a very appealing idol.
If you want more selections from the photobook, drop a comment. Not that I need much encouragement, but a little never hurts, right?
