I went to Hyper Japan for the first time last weekend! My friends have always told me that I should go, so one day I caved and decided to check it out. I saw that they had a fashion show so I applied to represent agejo, and they accepted me! I was so happy.
I had such an amazing time, and I’m surprised that I haven’t been before because Hyper Japan had everything that I loved and needed – Japanese fashion, Japanese culture and kawaii goodies!
I stayed at Chewiee’s house the night before so that we could get ready and go together. She really wanted to play with my hair and I wasn’t allowed to look until it was done and oh my gosh she is amazing! As gyaru say – “the bigger the hair, the closer you are to God” and man I was in heaven. I also tried this eyeshadow from Born Pretty Store as I really liked the pink colour! So the theme was pink and black. I really like it! It’s quite soft which is good for natural looks. To get yours, check out their website and don’t forget to enter the code HORNH10 for a discount!
Anyway, after we got ready (me decked head-to-toe in MA*RS and Chewiee in her Black Diamond tracksuit) we headed off to Hyper Japan and met Anita there, who was also going to represent Agejo in the fashion show. It was my first time meeting her and she was so sweet! We had a bit of time to chill out before we were thrown onto the stage, so I tried to calm my nerves by getting to know everyone there. I had no idea how many people were interested in Japanese fashion! It was so inspiring.
Please ignore my ugly ass eyebrows but I’m loving these soft colours!
Doing what we gyaru do best – shopping!

Victoria, Sarah and Sapphire! I was so happy to see them, and really grateful that they saw me on the show
We spent the whole day flitting around the different stores and doing our little catwalk, as the fashion show was split into two parts (one in the morning, one in the afternoon). It was a lot easier than I thought but I did pose very awkwardly at one point because I didn’t know what to do. Cringe! But a few of my friends were cheering me on in the audience which really made my day and boosted my confidence. I want to go back and do it all over as I had such an amazing time! I will definitely go to Hyper Japan again, but I think next time I want to walk around and check out the stalls more (as I only went to a couple of them).
Have you ever heard of Hyper Japan before? What do you think?
