Want to model in Japan? Check out the CanCam Contest
I’m late to the party but I wanted to talk about the CanCam Model Search. CanCam is a fashion magazine that I covered in my Akamoji-kei vs Aomoji-kei: It All Started with Red Letters post. It is an Akamoji-kei magazine. CanCam gets it’s name from ‘I Can Campus’, which indicates its strong college female following. However it is also known as the “Office Lady Bible”.

In an attempt to bring a larger following as well as notoriety to the magazine, the staff of CanCam has decided to do a model search. CanCam is trying to find a star that represents the new generation. It is not just an ordinary model search as it will make use of social networking site, Google+.

Cosplaying and Convention Culture in the Caribbean

Hello everyone. I’m here once again to talk to you about something that relates to Japanese culture, cosplay. In recent times, elements of cosplay has been integrated into everyday dress.With anime-inspired nail art, Sailor Moon tattoos, pastel wigs and more.

Likewise, Japanese pop culture has been steadily growing in the Caribbean. The region itself has three conventions, while not as big as France’s Japan Expo, USA’s Anime Expo and Japan’s Comiket, they are notable in their own right. These conventions include Barbados’ AnimeKon, Puerto Rico’s PR Comic Con and Jamaica’s Anime Nation. Each convention puts an emphasis on mixing Japanese pop culture with local talent and each heavily features the work of local artists.

Graduation Life

Hi everyone. I’m so, so sorry that I didn’t update recently. I just wanted to give everyone an update on how I’ve been doing. As some of you may know, I had graduation on Saturday, yay me. I took so many pictures, I thought it would be wrong to not share it with you guys.

A month before, my mom ordered my dress from ifitdress.com. Which is a Chinese dress-site? Though the dress arrived past the confirmed due date, it was in great quality and matched the picture. Though I’m sure my mom is weary now of buying clothes from unfamiliar sites. I bought my jewelry from Cave Shepherd’s Columbian Emeralds, and I was not disappointed. While the shoes, which were very comfortable, are Liliana.
