The world’s most pink creator, Kimura U (木村優 ), is known around the globe as a fashion creator, model, and voice actress.

Kimura U was appointed an official Kawaii Ambassador by the Japanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs with the mission of promoting Japanese pop culture through Harajuku fashion and anime. She has since appeared at more than 10 countries around the world as part of the Ministry’s Cool Japan program, including the US, Russia, and China.

Her first original publication “1st STYLE BOOK – Kimura U” was an instant hit, featuring her original concept of “Moehara,” combining “Moe” (meaning cute, from otaku fandom) with “Hara” (short for Harajuku).

In 2016, Kimura U created the Kawaii version of the official NHK mascot character Domo-Kun, as well as garnered attention for her costume designs for the popular idol group Wasuta (The World Standard). She also made her voice acting debut in the anime “Idol Memories” and successfully performed in China.

In 2017, Kimura U unveiled her new fashion brand KawaiiHolic, which gained many fans with the slogan of “Quitting Kawaii is the same as dying.” The world’s most pink creator and shining star of Harajuku is unstoppable!
Kimura U will be presenting a Q&A session with the featured brands. Don't miss your chance to talk to her!

Calling all star sleuths, Martian maniacs and Astro adventurers! Please join us at MechaCon’s fourth annual tea party for an extra special starry soiree- Under the Milky Way!

The artist Aini was commissioned for the tea party's promotional image. Tea party attendees will receive 11"x17" print of the artwork as a gift from the J-fashion staff.
Painting by Aini
About the artist: Virginia Hilton is a self-taught artist from Germany. Tired of living like a Fairy Tale character in the Bavarian forest of Germany she decided to move to Los Angeles to pursue a career in gaming, art, and localization. Her background has inspired her to create fanciful multimedia art pieces. Her artistic visions culminate in a variety of mediums: digital and traditional paintings, as well as ribbon embroidery, or vintage treasure making. Her favorite things include cats, frilly dresses, and flowers. Which, incidentally, are also her favorite things to draw and work with.
The original painting will be on display and a part of the charity silent auction at the tea party.

A silent charity auction will be held at the Under the Milky-way tea party. All proceeds from this year’s Charity Auction will be going to Buildings for America’s Bravest.
Building for America’s Bravest is a program of the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation that builds smart homes for our most catastrophically injured service members returning home. Each home is custom designed to address the unique needs of each individual. Energy efficient, automated and easily accessible—these homes use “adaptive technology” to help our most severely injured heroes live better, more independent lives.
However, as amazing as adaptive home technology is, it’s far beyond the reach of most veterans and their modest pensions. The waiting list is long – and for every home we build, another three veterans join the list. When the call came, these brave service members went. They made extraordinary sacrifices in our place. Please help give them a home they can come home to. Your donation will make a real difference in a service hero’s life.

Tea party tickets can be purchased here. Tickets are already halfway sold out, so get yours today before they sell out!
