Hey there! I exhibited at Japan Expo this past weekend. It was very fun; there were a lot of intriguing cultural Japanese activities for attendees to partake in as well as some of the usual convention things like the videogame and screening rooms. Overall, the event was very relaxed and I really appreciated the staff members and the event being so accommodating for both artists and exhibitors. Also, thank you to everyone who came out to see me. Even though I always bring my camera to conventions, I ALWAYS forget to take photos. Here are some that I remembered to take.
The highlight of my weekend was being able to dress up with my boyfriend in rockabilly inspired Mickey and Minnie outfits. I got special custom-print tattoo paper just for these outfits and designed these matching tattoos myself. I really wanted to make a whole sleeve of tattoos for both of us, but I started the project a little too late and was only able to make a few designs. Hopefully we can wear these outfits again in an area with cooler scenery.
Many thanks to my boyfriend's friend who took these photos for us. I did the editing, but let's be real; there would be nothing to edit if someone didn't take these pictures for us. They're amazing.
PS: This is one of those rare times that I didn't have to make any of the clothing. Everything was storebought, except for those temp tattoos!
