(My bad dearies, I thought I had posted this waaaaay back when!)
This past weekend on October 23rd, Misako was looking for the next Momoko Ryugasaki of Kamikaze Girls film fame! She toured many filming locations in the town of Shimotsuma, in the Ibaraki Prefecture in Eastern Japan.
As a huge fan of the film and of course the fashion I certainly wish I could have attended! Here is the promotional trailer for the event.
Special judges for this “next princess of lolita” contest:
Misako Aoki (Charisma Lolita Model)
Novala Takemoto (Kamikaze Girls Author)
Akinori Isobe (The president of BABY, THE STARS SHINE BRIGHT)
Fumiyo Isobe (The executive director of BABY, THE STARS SHINE BRIGHT)
There will be a BABY, THE STARS SHINE BRIGHT Autumn/Winter Fashion Show where 20 new Products will be shown! The BABY, THE STARS SHINE BRIGHT store in Shimotsuma will also be open for 1 day so you can actually shop where Momoko did just like in the film. ^_^
And now, here is the video of the contestants and the actual winner!
Here is the winner – Yui Hosokawa
After accepting Hosokawa said, “I will be happy to be a help, so that local rice paddies will be filled with girls in Lolita fashion.”
