Anime Boston 2013 – Lolita Fashion Show!

As always, this is one of the panels that I look forward to every year at Anime Boston. However, this year the panel was hosted by Kiki and Heather. Similar to last year, it began with an introduction to Lolita Fashion, including the multiple styles, types of clothing and accessories that are incorporated in the fashion. The panelists made a distinction that Lolita is not cosplay, because it is a subculture fashion in Japan. Also, a video of Misako Aoki and Midori Fukasawa at the new Baby, the Stars Shine Bright store was presented at the panel. Unfortunately, there was a technical problem playing the entire video, but here’s the video below!

After the panel, came the section I've been waiting for! The Fashion Show! I must commend the runway, because it was very organized. Instead of having the models walk from front to back and turn around in the same aisle to go back to the front, they had the models start walking from the back of the room to the front right into where their seats were along the center aisle and pose about 3 times in different spots along the walk. This provided everyone including the attendees seated in the back an opportunity to take photos of the models. So feast your eyes on the photos below!
