I never anticipated that my Coord would be so well received on social media. Did I really wile out in pink ears and a tail? Yes, magical beings I most certainly did. So, before Day Two of Katsucon even began, which you can read about here, I took some pink energy to the streets and did a mini photoshoot. I’ll be honest I always ears and a tail, and like I mentioned in Katsucon Day One I initially went to Pawstar looking for my Cheshire fit. While they trapped me with pink ears, I decided that on Saturday I would just live my best fox life.

Creating the Sweetheart Fox:

When I wake up, I don’t usually have a plan for my outfit, I just go by whatever story mode setting is playing in my brain and create from there. Yes, I’m an avid fan of the Sims Franchise if you didn’t know. As I woke up to Belgium waffles, and a smiling Aquarius you know what I thought about? I thought about Naruto. I admired the Nine-tailed fox spirit and its pop across folklore and various stories. I wondered if there was a way to embody my energy and Foxes.  I reached into my suitcase pulled out the Lazy Oaf top, and let the magic happen.

I’ve been pondering what way I could use the personalized Resin hearts from Pandasancream, and it hit me! Recalling Toshi (Dollfille) words about makeup and not having empty/dead space. I thought why not turn the Black skater skirt into a canvas, make it a mirror to the top. Oh, my golly gosh I did something funky. I threw the giant pastel pink buttons on the waist and looked in the mirror. This was a pink energy look. Clipping on the tail was a process, I didn’t have a belt, and I didn’t want it to show. I tried clipping it to my shirt. Epic fails throughout the whole day, do not try at home. As creative as this outfit was for me, I didn’t realize why I had so much joy in how I looked, until I attended the DC Kawaii Style Panel.

Imani asked, why do we enjoy Kawaii Fashion. We had a moment to think about our answers and while I raised my hand to answer, I actually put it down to 1. Complete my thoughts in my own head, and 2. Save it for this piece. My answer is, I enjoy kawaii fashion because it allows me the chance to create a character that is stronger than myself, and this fashion brings me joy and expression into visual art. I feel that with kawaii fashion you create the self you are meant to be, and you just love yourself a little bit differently and more freely. Coord give me the patience to explore the fundamentals of my art and voice.

Big Thank You:

I am almost always crying when I see that people enjoy my look, or appreciate the character I create in style, so I wanted to shout out some people who helped spread Pink Energy in a big way. Like, the fact you support me and are kind enough to share this silly Columbia girl bumbling through alternative styles means the world to me.
