2nd Year of The J-Fashion Show!

Disclaimer: Not all of the photos were taking by my camera so the quality will vary.

Sup cuties? How was everyone's Easter weekend? It's unbelievable that as I've grown older, certain holidays have been less meaningful to me but I do hope everyone else enjoyed themselves with their families or alone pretending to be bunnies like me '^' No, I actually did spend time with my family so it wasn't all forgotten but allow me to move on to the J-fashion show that I participated in last week. This was the same event that happened last year presented by JSA (Japanese Student Association) but this year was very different. I did two different style categories (himekaji and school uniform) as well as a dance performance to Perfume's Electro World and I enjoyed myself! Yay me for not chickening out of it last minute like I was almost going to!

I'll start with the room where all the models and other volunteers were preparing in. I was actually really exhausted leading up to that day because I had so much I needed to do for school work and mastering the dance choreography so we didn't look like derps onstage. J-pop dance routines always stress me out when I'm on a time crunch but I did it to myself this time around. Even so, I somehow managed to put on my dolly face and outfits for the event. Here I am with some friends taking photos with them!
Sam makes me wish there were more guys who dressed this way in North Texas but there's hardly any to my knowledge. His outfit was awesome!
Christine Christine, adorable ass Christine!! You'll be seeing more of her!
Odelers~ I've been secretly admiring her latest pieces from afar every time we hang out but if she's reading this by any chance, girl your outfits have been extra look gewd!!
Here's Christine again posing with Stacey who's wearing her light blue/white seifuku!
I just barely noticed dem platform shoes... :o bawse
And you know, we had to have some Kyary swag present.
Okay I'm sorry for using swag but look at her replication guys!
Then there's these three haha!
Caroline's (middle) efing smirk!! AHHHHHHH so adorable I wanna bite it off!
My turn finally arrived and I awkwardly strutted the stage in my school uniform outfit but I swear my skirt did not seem that short when I was wearing it so it's probably the angle or at least I hope it is. Kevin pointed out the extremely smiley fellows in the background which makes me think otherwise ; A ;
Then I was preparing for my next outfit which was himekaji! Out of all the gyaru styles, himekaji seems to be my personal favorite as of the moment. Here's the outfit while I pose with Sunny, an amazing lolita and one of my dance partners!

Then we did the damn thing! I was so tense and nervous that I messed up on a part near the beginning but my friend who was in the audience said he didn't even catch it. I shouldn't have beat myself up over it as much as I did. I want to show my YouTube subbies all these J-pop dances I've learned up to now but how on earth do people get away with doing covers of any kind without getting copyright notices? If you know could you please tell me because I've always wondered this.
The petticoat was borrowed from Morgan (other dance partner!) so now I want to go on bodyline to get my own since it looked so cute!!
Then the three of us towards the end. Yes, we had toy mics to amp up the kawaii factor! Plus I felt naked without one during rehearsal so they were a great idea!
Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed the positive vibes that filled the environment and hope to play a bigger role in the next J-fashion show we have.
Sunny: Middle; Morgan: Right
My next post will be about B.A.P's concert! So please remain subscribed :D

  14. lol I actually knew one of them but the other two I'm not sure of o.O XD Maybe the photographer just caught their expressions at the wrong moment coincidentally > < I don't have a donk so I feel like they weren't oogling at that but I just thought it was funny to point out haha!

  17. Thanks haha and it was really enjoyable!!

  18. Thanks Erica cutie!! I wish there were more everywhere so I can watch how other people do it and learn more about new J-fashion styles. If you are near a Uni that has a Japanese club they might do stuff like that at least once a year I'd assume and especially conventions!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Oh really? But what about San Japan? :o

    ReplyDelete
  20. haha thanks Sarah! I'm not sure if I can handle all that stress with how many classes I'll be signed up for at that time but I'll be hoping to still help out somehow!

  21. Oooo I'll look into that since i know my mom's art school has at least one fashion show a year! i'd love to model

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  23. Reading this made me wish I had went to Sakura Matsuri today >_< Oh well, I shall go next year! I'm so happy that it was a positive vibe; it looked like lots of fun! And, I loved all your outfits especially the himekaji one. Girl, your are super photogenic especially the shot of you on the runway in your school uniform ^^

  27. I gotta check the dates...isn't that in late July or sometime in August? Hmm...I might be saving up to go to K-CON instead actually but that may not happen so possibly yes I might go to San Japan!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Awww XD Thank you thank you thank you x 100! I am not always lucky with having a picture come out decently without my awareness of it so I was pretty shocked when I saw that one on their Facebook page. I heard Sakura Matsuri is typically fun! The photos I've seen of it make me feel like poo for not being anywhere near it! I hope to go really soon one of these years.

  29. Yeah! You should throw hints at her and her fellow classmates one day and just show up to her class with all these J-fashion inspirational photos and stuff just to get their minds headed in that direction and then BAM! Japanese fashion show! lol good luck.
