BBG Parasol Society Application is up

Brooklyn Botanic Garden‘s ‪#‎ParasolSociety‬ application is up online. If you’re ready to wear your favorite ‪#‎Lolita‬-inspired clothing and have a cute ‪#‎parasol‬ to show, you should consider yourself applying for the show~ I also participated the last year’s show, and it left me with the happiest moment as I was among the cutest lolitas in the city. Better get ready to do a sweet delicate ‪#‎catwalk‬~

BBG 7th Cosplay Fashion Show Application is up

The online application for Brooklyn Botanic Garden‘s 7th Annua l‪#‎SakuraMatsuri‬ ‪#‎CosplayFashionShow‬ is up now~

I’ve participated in the show for the last 3 years and this is such a fun and exciting experience to have as a ‪#‎cosplayer‬.
The biggest part I love about is that the show is not a competition or winning against the others, but just to have fun with the other models and visitors. So if you’re interested, go ahead and apply~ ^_^

After Sunday’s Cosplay Fashion Show, it was nearly 7 pm and I was on my way to exit the garden. Then, I quickly took a couple of shots with my iPod. The garden is more beautiful with zero visitors!

BBG Sakura Matsuri 2015 – Press Preview

 

IMG_4327

I was at Brooklyn Botanic Garden today for the press preview of Cosplay Fashion Show & Parasol Society.
Sakura trees near the main stage, Cherry Esplanade, were not fully bloomed yet, but other parts of the garden got the all pink trees!

This year will be my third time of participating in the Cosplay Fashion Show, and the first time for Parasol Society. (the Lolita Fashion Show) And the big change for this year has been announced by the BBG Staffs! The white tent at Cherry Esplanade will be replaced to a clear tent which will bring natural day light shooting directly from above, and as a result, photos will come out much better with good lighting source. Besides, since the tent is clear, more audience will have chance to look at the stage from the outside of the tent. And as a show model, I’ll be walking down the aisle by seeing Sakura trees blooming at my sides.

For the background music, Taiko drumming team will play the beat. I had a chance to hear the live play of Taiko at the rehearsal. It’s such a loud, heavy somewhat playful sound (because it’ll make you dance) so it’ll definitely grab people’s attention

Every year, I see an increasing number of cosplayers at the garden, and I’ll be happy to take photos of them. So please wait for my Sakura Matsuri photos in May~
