A Little Help?

Recently, I was given the opportunity to model in a Harajuku fashion show.  I was really excited to get the chance to show off not only lolita, but other styles popular in Japan, as they also asked me to be the fashion coordinator of the show.  It was a major disappointment then when I was given only two weeks, no budget, and no way of contacting the models to give suggestions and feedback on the outfits they chose.  As such, the fashion show was less of a 'let's imitate the many interesting and diverse styles found in Japan' and more of a 'let's wear mis-matched clothes and paint our faces white.'

A slideshow of the event can be found HERE.  I warn you now that some of the photos are NSFW.  At. all.  Also, please feel free to comment. I really think it would be helpful to the coordinators of the event and to the newspaper that covered the event, as neither seemed to do much homework on the subject matter, and it shows.

So my question is this: have any of you been in a situation like this, where you were given the chance to explain your passion for lolita, only to be let down completely by the final product?  What did you do?  Did you let it slide, or did you speak up?
