Animegacon Las Vegas anime convention: DollDelight designer Cyril Lumboy, Jrock Gothic Lolita fashion show, J-pop clothing.
I had a wonderful time at Animegacon, as Guest of Honor. It’s inspiring to see how international designers, like Doll Delight (above), are taking inspiration from Japanese street styles and giving it a fresh, colorful face.
The “La Carmina fashion show” was actually a showcase of five non-Japanese designers, influenced by Jrock and Gothic Lolita style.
I introduced each collection and described the outfits worn by the models.
Beautiful works by Rina Cali, Scarlett Ginger, DollDelight, Retroscope Fashions, and Hello Drama. Animegacon posted video clips of the runway show.
The best part: meeting all of you in person! Everyone was a sweetheart.
Open, positive energy all around.

Cyril Lumboy, the Doll Delight designer, made this headdress for me.
We finally met after several years of chatting (I even featured Cyril on my site two years ago).
I also hosted a panel and signed autographs. Thank you so much for the birthday gifts!
Kent and I stopped by the h.NAOTO booth in the exhibitor’s hall.
A happy run-in with the Visual You girls.
