Anime Expo 2012 Part 1

Phew, I think I'm finally recovered from Anime Expo! I caught a nasty case of "con flu" so I've been recovering all this week. I can't believe Comic Con is almost here! Summer convention season is in full force.

This year was my first time on staff for AX and what a great time it was! It's a much different experience participating in the convention from the staff side. I sincerely hope everyone who attended this year's AX, specifically anything fashion related, had a wonderful time. Olivia and I, in addition to our staff worked very hard to make this a fun time for all involved. My apologies if I was hasty or short with any of you. I assure you it wasn't personal. We had very strict schedules we had to stick to. u__u

As part of our duties we spent our first day escorting Ms. Misako Aoki to various press conferences and appearances. Miss Aoki is the Japan Kawaii Ambassador (yes, that is a real thing!) and most famous lolita fashion model from Japan. I hope you enjoy these behind the scenes photo snaps!

My outfit for Day 1. It's been so long since I wore lolita!

Dress: Angelic Pretty
Head Bow + clip: Angelic Pretty and Bonjour Honey
Blouse: Bodyline
Bag: Angelic Pretty

The lovely lady on the far right was Misako's translator and guide for the course of con, model RisaLight. Please make sure to "like" her facebook page!
