We’re back with another movie night! This time we’ll be celebrating the wonderful world of modern Japanese fashion with a presentation from designer and cosplayer Robin Ray and a screening of the award winning Japanese comedy Kamikaze Girls*. As always, we will have free Japanese snacks for everyone to try!
Robin Ray is an Alabama based artist, designer, and cosplayer. She specializes in Japanese lolita fashion and has modeled for Japan’s most famous lolita fashion store, “Baby The Stars Shine Bright.” You can see her work on her Instagram page: https://www.instagram.com/hellomermaid/ Robin will also have some of her crafts for sale. We here at JASA are pleased to have her present!
Kamikaze Girls (下妻物語――ヤンキーちゃんとロリータちゃん) is the story of the unlikely friendship —and ensuing chaos— that forms between Momoka and Ichiko, who wear contrasting fashion styles: lolita and Yanki.
