Kyary Pamyu Pamyu, the colourfully obscure Japanese pop sensation came to London on the 14th of February. Naturally Frills and Frolics made a Japanese fashion meet to get ready for it and I was lucky enough to host it! (☆^ー^☆) I even got the opportunity to write an article about the concert for MyM magazine!
We met at Picadilly station at 11am and spent the next couple of hours or so just wandering around Soho, eating sushi, drinking bubble milk tea and being a general colourful nuisance. We had delicious dim sum at China town's Golden Pavillion and checked out the cute shops and their terrible Engrish.
We even managed to fit an incredible 14 people into a Purikura booth!! Maybe a UK record~
The main point of the meet was the banner, lovingly decorated by Michelle with fluffy bon bons and lace, every Lolita at the meet signed it as a present from us to Miss Pamyu Pamyu.
As well as the banner, she also made amazingly cute KPP inspired Jewellery especially for the gig from her brand Roxie Sweetheart! I bought a ring with a little pastel Kyary face on that worked perfectly with my outfit.
The outfit I wore that day was Baby, The Stars shine Bright Chocolate Fascinate Fairytale in pink, a gorgeous pussy-bowed Angelic Pretty blouse in pink and pink AP bow and also gold Tea parties!
The wig is Geisha wigs Maiden. I must admit is was very funny seeing us all travel on the tube, our vibrant oufits contrasted against the dull back drop so much~
Onwards after the meet, we went to the Islington 02 Academy to see Kyary and even got filmed by ZIP TV. The concert itself was amazing, the stage was polka dot and pastel and Kyary started her set with Pon Pon Pon, which the audience really responded to!
The high lights for me were Candy Candy and Cherry Bon Bon, there was even small documentaries about the rise of Kyary onscreen on the stage and a giant pink bunny mascot called Pamyurin!
The outfits were as expected wacky and colourful with plenty of well choreographed dancing.

Over all it was a great experience, I got to see one of my idols live and have a fun, colourful day with my friends.
