SDCC 2013: All Shapes and Sizes

SCC 2013: All Shapes and Sizes

I was so happy when I found out the All Shapes and Sizes panel was coming to Comic Con. The first time the panel was conducted was at Wondercon and it was such an amazing experience. Leah Cevoli pulled a Nick Fury and assembled a wonderful group of women to discuss the issues of body image in the media and how it affects women in every day life. It was incredible to see this issue discussed in a public forum and I could not have been happier that the discussion was heading to Comic Con.

One of the great things about this panel is the variety of panelists. Just like the title of the discussion, the women on the panel are of all shapes and sizes and cover multiple facets of this issue because of their different roles in the entertainment industry and the geek community.

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.
