J-Fashion Matsuri – A Future Convention?

Posted by dandycandy on June 6, 2006

I'm scared just writing this post.

But being scared isn't going to do me any good.

I'm starting now to find out if anyone would be interested in a convention that celebrates the best in Japanese fashion and cosplay.  If there is enough interest, I will set it up for July or August of 2008 for somewhere in Illinois.  Illinois already has two major anime conventions, ACEN and Reactor, but I think this would be a nice change, since it only focuses on Japanese street fashion and cosplay and all aspects.  It's a subject I've been passionate about these two for a long time, and I'd like to see at least one yearly festival dedicated to it.  I am seriously trying to make this happen, but I need to see if there is enough interest in the subject.  I can only set up something in Illinois, but hopefully, someone is willing to set up the sister con in the west for all the western cosplayers and fashion enthusiasts out there.

The whole convention would be dedicated to cosplay culture and Japanese fashion culture, including its impact on Japanese society, all types of Japanese fashion, and so on and so forth.  Everything for the anime and manga influence to fashion shows, or how much people like it, I would hope that it would show itself in this big gather.  I hope to have the most ambitious masquerade ever, and other big events dedicated to showcasing and educating about my favorite subject in the world.  I don't intend to start out big and flashy, but I do intend to work my way up with the type of thing, and I am looking for people who would be interested in helping, both here in Illinois and maybe a group that'd like to do something on the west coast as well.  If there is enough interest, I am more than willing to work tirelessly to bring it into fruition.  Thank you for your consideration, and any comments would be greatly appreciated.
