BEST OF 2011, PART 1: LA NEW YEARS, JAPAN FUNDRAISING, HONG KONG GOTH STORES, FASHION MODELING IN ITALY.

What a wild year! As New Year’s Eve approaches, let’s take a moment to reminisce. Do you remember my travels and adventures, from last January to June?

I rang in 2011 in Los Angeles, at a Hollywood alt party with Seba and friends. We had a crazy time in LA, with gigs that included modeling for Lip Service.

In March, I was about to go to Japan for two TV hosting jobs (German and Belgian travel shows), and help bring the NOH8 Campaign (a photo-protest against inequality) worldwide. The earthquake struck the week before my flight – and needless to say, everything got cancelled.

First and foremost, I made sure my friends were safe. Seba flew to LA, and we threw ourselves into charity projects for Japan. I also interviewed Black Veil Brides about their experiences during the quake.

Seba and I released a benefit t-shirt with Like Atmosphere, and a panda bear necklace with Soho Hearts. All funds go to helping Japan; you can learn more about the designs here.

Since the disaster shifted my work away from Japan, I broadened my focus to dark culture and travel worldwide. First stop: Hong Kong (where we stayed in a Roomorama apartment) and Macau (for the Galaxy resort opening!)

Favorite memories include visiting the Charlie Brown theme cafe, and baking cute panda bread at my cousin’s cooking school.

Read all my HK and Macau articles, including Gothic Lolita shop recommendations.

This year, my TV hosting work blew up. The Norway host club documentary aired, and won the equivalent of a Grammy award. (Catch up on my video clips.)

I wasn’t able to make it to Wave Gotik Treffen, due to a conflict with a fashion event in Florence. In the next post, I’ll share photos from the second half of 2011: Italy, Tokyo, Wisconsin, Mexico and beyond!

So many work and life plans had to be changed, due to the situation in Japan. Trying to pick up the pieces. On the bright side, this could be an opportunity for cool new paths… there’s lots of travel ahead. Hint: you’ll be seeing La Carmina and Sebastiano in Italy soon!

The NOH8 campaign in Japan had to be postponed. But look who also did a shoot for the nonprofit cause… my Scottish Fold cat, Basil Farrow!

Basil Farrow’s grandmother made this NOH8 banner for him to wear. Isn’t my celebrity cat a top model? He knows how to pout and pose his sideways-feet.

Thanks for your supportive comments about our fundraising work for Japan. I’ve taken them to heart, and want to do my best this year for charitable causes. The LA events were a success, with great people involved… I’ll post photos very soon!

As you probably know, the NOH8 Campaign in Japan (which Seba and I have been organizing) has been postponed. We’re so grateful for your support — so many people volunteered their time and effort. At the very least, we can share the story of our photoshoot with Adam Bouska.

We began our day at the Toni & Guy Academy in Santa Monica. Sebastiano is a model for the famous hairdressing company, and since we were taking photos for a good cause, the Academy graciously styled our hair gratis. (They just dyed our hair red for Japan… photos soon!)

I showed my stylist inspiration photos of Mana in Moi dix Mois. She consulted with her instructor, and got to work: straightening, spraying, and back-combing to Visual Kei heights.

We put on our borrowed clothing from Skingraft, and drove to NOH8’s studio in Burbank for our private shoot.

Adam is fast — he shoots portraits in 5 minutes, and they turn out incredible.

The benefit of putting duct tape over people’s mouths is that they can’t voice any criticisms.

A few days ago, Toni & Guy dyed our hair red, in support of Japan... wait until you see our new look!

Have you ever tried styling your hair like a J-rocker? Did you succeed? What Visual Kei hairstyles should we attempt next?

Thanks for your kind comments about our photos for the NOH8 Campaign! The shoot wouldn’t have been possible without our friends Toni & Guy (who did our big Visual Kei hair) and Skingraft — an LA design company that lent us leather clothing.

Sebastiano and I went to the downtown store, and tried on various leather ensembles. Skingraft kindly loaned us the pieces for free (thank you Phyllis for putting us in touch).
