  • The Sakura-Con 2011 experience actually started the day before the event. I was invited to model for talented Japanese designer Sebastian Masuda‘s 6%DOKIDOKI Harajuku fashion line, together with their spokeswomen Vani and Yuka, for a television appearance on New Day Northwest. Harajuku fashion is a very popular style in Japan, and is basically integrated in everyday clothing. Mr. Masuda’s line is designed to rebel against a dull and colorless world through his very colorful designs. It was really nice to model such kawaii clothes and accessories, that are literally a color explosion!XD

    Everything on myself was from their shop, with the exception of the makeup, wig and shoes.^_~ I woke up early that day, drove to Seattle, and meet them at the KING 5 studio for the early morning taping. There I dressed up and went through backstage briefing/rehearsal. For a brief moment I met Jodie Foster, who was at that time promoting her movie The Beaver on the show. Regrettably, I wasn’t able to take a picture with her, since we were next on queue to get on stage. T-T Backstage, everyone on the 6%DOKIDOKI team was as colorful and friendly as can be. They were saying kawaii all the time, especially while they were styling me from head to toe. *^_^* I felt like a super pampered princess! Needless to say, I was very delighted to have met and worked with them. Click here to continue reading “Sakura-Con 2011″…
