Kawaii in Manila 2: Alien spreads Kawaiiness~! .。;・+ヾ(♥◕ฺ∀◕ฺ)ノ゚:。・+

I know this is a bit too late for an update, but I really wanted to blog my experiencee at Kawaii in Manila 2 last September 6, 2014 at Whitespace Makati. Who can resist kawaiiness at its finest?

For someone like me who loves Japanese Culture and  a follower of the living doll/gyaru trend, this event was a haven. Kawaii in Manila 2 is the first Kawaii Convention here in the Philippines and was organized by the lovely team of Kawaii Ph.

Kawaii is "cute" in Japanese although it's meaning has gone beyond just being "cute" or "adorable", it has been also a global phenomenon. Like what Kawaii Ph Team said that "Kawaii" is not just looking cute and being cute, but also a way of looking at the world in a happy and positive light, they brought happiness to all the participants of the event through their fun and kawaii activities.

These activities included the Kawaii Girl and Ikemen Guy Contests, Kawaii Fashion Show, Kawaii Workshop who taught lettering and how to craft using polymer clay.

Ate Yanna, a friend of mine and owner of Perkee, was there for the Kawaii Bazaar~!  Perkee showcased their kawaii plushies and hats in the event. (@´∀`p★)゚*。+゚★

Our little BJ seems to enjoy taking selfies XD

 Also, my friends from Princess Bubblegum ††† were there for the bazaar. :3

I made a new friend :3 She is the owner of LolliBolei. They sell Lolita Make-up and accessories~!

Two friends of mine were attendees of the event, Ate Regi Robledo went there because her artwork was included in the Kawaii Art Exhibit.

And here is her artwork~! TADAAAA~!

They had a replica of a  little Cherry Blossom Tree in the event which was adorable. And since one of my dreams is to go to Japan to see the Cherry Blossom Trees in full bloom, I thought it was pretty cool.

Because Fuji Film Instax was one of their sponsors, you can take a picture at their booth for free~! And then you can design the picture with their kawaii stickers~!

These two naughty cats were caught nyanning around the event. They were there to advertise for Perkee and of course to go Nyan Nyan.  ゚.:。+゚(●→‿ฺ←●)乂(๑→∀←๑)゚.:。+゚

It was truly a fun-filled event. (((o(*゚▽゚*)o))) And surely, Kawaii people will support the next Kawaii in Manila Event <3 

"Changing the world with kawaii."
