A Dolly Good Time!

The Dolly House Runway Show invited us to attend their show last weekend at UCI! It was their first fashion show and everyone was super excited and gathered to support their favorite designers and to share their love for Lolita fashion.

Lolita fashion culture is a very fanciful one filled with a rainbow of color and soft and cute accessories. It has has floated across the world and has given many young women a very cute and creative way to express themselves beyond the norm. Even if I am not a part of the culture, I can certainly appreciate the time and effort it takes to be a lolita.

Super*MARKET Nightmarket, the Holiday Edition

SUPER*MARKET Nightmarket!

We took the podcast to SUPER*MARKET again for a special, holiday edition at Meltdown Comics hosted by our friends at Bubble Punch. Super*Market the perfect place to shop for handmade and unique items and the timing was great for shopping for gifts. Christmas gifts. Holiday gifts. Gift gifts. Though I must confess, I only shopped for myself!

Check out our photos from the event below! By the way, Chubby Bunny borrowed my camera at some point while we were doing the podcast show — so more than half of these photos were taken by her with my camera!

Rune Boutique at Royal-T, Opening Night

On December 9th, Rune Boutique made its opening night debut at Royal-T Café in Culver City, California. My friends at Bubble Punch asked me to work the event as a roaming photographer. It was hard work trying to get all the photos that they needed but I had a lot of fun. The Rune Boutique exhibition featured classic work from the late Rune Naito, a Japanese artist that was known as the “Father of Kawaii.” 6%Dokidoki held an energetic and colorful fashion show which launched their men’s line of clothing and model/singer Kyary Pyamu Pyamu held a fun mini-concert with two guys as her back up dancers, wearing lion heads. She was super adorable and made the best fish-face.

Rune Boutique is currently up at Royal-T Café until January 9th, 2012. They have a pop-up store that sells 6%Dokidoki accessories and clothing, along with new items by Sebastian Matsuda (owner of 6%Dokidoki) and his reinterpretation of  Rune Naito’s work. There are shirts, pillows, mugs, purses and all kinds of kawaii items. To see all my photos from the event, visit Tokyofashion.com: Rune Boutique – Kawaii Fashion (6%DOKIDOKI), Art (Rune Naito) & Music (Kyary Pamyu Pamyu) Invade Los Angeles.
