J-Pop Summit Festival

Hello kitty
New People had their grand opening in Japantown this Saturday. This mall devoted to Japanese pop culture replaces the Japantown bowling alley & consists of a gallery, retail space, movie theater & cafe. The line to get in went all the way up the block, so I decided to check it out another day.

Gothic & Lolita Fashion Show
There was also a small street fair with live entertainment, such as the Gothic & Lolita Fashion Show. This featured an actual line of clothing called Baby, the Stars Shine Bright. Models wore frilly things & looked like a cross between a story book princess, Little Bo Peep & Gormenghast.

Cute cupcakes
I also saw the smallest, cutest cupcakes I've ever seen, from Kingdom Cake. I don't understand the current mania for cupcakes.

Are you sure you aren't just playing coy, Herr Feldheim? Those cupcakes are perfectly adorable.

Yes, I can see how cute the cupcakes are, but I just don't understand why we are seeing cupcakes popping up everywhere. I even saw a stand full of tiny cupcakes at the Zine Fest, where they were used to lure readers to a zine about vegan baking & cooking.
