Over the course of 3 days, anime fans met fashion at the annual Pacific Media Expo! I didn’t get a chance to see the con the way most people do since I only attended the last day and that was as one of the models for one of my favorite Japanese brands, Ghost of Harlem! I’m quite ecstatic that I was able to walk in this considering how much I love Sakurai Rina. I took it upon myself to do my own make-up and nails because I know the gyaru style so well. It would have been a dishonor to the Ghost of Harlem label and to SakuRina to let anyone else do my nails and make-up… not to sound slightly egoist but it is the truth. Gyaru is one of the few things I am very very comfortable doing as it’s something I’ve played with for years; and I read Ageha (小悪魔ageha) and Ane-Ageha (姉ageha) pretty religiously!
Jewelry was provided by the beautiful and talented, Kasumi of Necrosarium!
