On November 19, the Central House of Artists
in Moscow was swarmed with visitors. Japanese embassy in Moscow was organizing a large event to honour the help Moscow goverment provided in the aftermath of the March earthquake. In the past two years the event was called J-pop Day, since it was largely devoted to the Japanese pop-culture - anime, music, fashion. This year, however, a large portion of the event was dedicated to the efforts of combating the earthquake aftermath.
The focus shifted off Lolita and towards other things, like art and documentaries, but it was still a very fun event, totally out of tune with other Russian cons, and, in my book, all the more exciting for it.
J-Fest lasted for two days - on Saturday Gothic&Lolita Festival held a special show along with a small brand (Chantilly, Putumayo and another brand I didn't recognize) show and Ash hair salon hair-making performance (models of which wore Baby, and, boy, the newest prints are neat
). On Sunday there was a Lolita Queen (I know, I know) and cosplay contests.
JustMoolti, our most amazing photographer, hung out mostly with us, so I have a ton of our photos. ( Collapse )
