Kawaii In Manila 2

It's finally Kawaii in Manila 2! The long wait is over for the first kawaii convention in the Philippines! In case you're confused why it's called first and yet there's 2 in the end of the event name, it's because Kawaii in Manila was the first kawaii event launched here and they are already having their 2nd chapter this year. We're not really sure if there are other kawaii events here, Kawaii In Manila is probably the only one. Correct us if we're wrong though! The event happened in Whitespace Manila, Makati City which had the ample amount of space to cater all the cuteness. The ticketing line wasn't long but we really didn't need to purchase since we won 2 early bird tickets from Hodge Podge's giveaway! Enough of this intro before it gets too long, more details will appear as you scroll down! :D

Upon entering the kawaii paradise, first thing we did was making our tummy happy. We probably arrived in the event by noon which means it's lunch time! After having our meals, we started wandering inside. There was an art gallery which had the most spacious area since most people were shopping. We stumbled upon Chichi aka Little Miss Paintbrush and saw her artwork in the gallery. Her artwork is immensely enthralling! It was like an underwater wonder or treasure that she interpretted through kawaii style. Art doesn't end from the gallery, there was a live art painting happening on stage. Too bad we missed her name, she painted a girl wearing a sakura kimono and a cute sugary headpiece. :D

Fan of fashion? Then the kawaii fashion show will surely make you ecstatic! Collections of four different designers were flaunted and showcased. Dolly Kaye opened the fashion show with a fairy and dolly styled outfits. Forestale made the crowd go crazy by showcasing cute couple-like models wearing mori kei fashion. Going on to hime fashion by La Princesse Doll which has patterns of pastels and flowers. For the finale, no other than Dorotee Sweetlips! A mysterious music suddenly changed the atmosphere during this lolita runway. A performance of a kawaii group followed after the fashion show and prize raffle. The audience became more active during the magnificent moment. :D

We totally had an amazing time during this euphoric event! We met a lot of awesome people like Rainbowholic, Dolldelight, Tricia Gosingtian and more to mention! Thoroughly thankful to team instax for capturing all our memorable moments in KIM2! They were super friendly and they took about 5 instax photos of us! Thanks again to Hodge Podge for the tickets plus kawaii goodies and sorry if we were too shy to say hi! The Hodge Podge booth was immensely busy with endless customers, we preferred not to disturb. We wanted to wait for Tricia G before leaving the kawaii paradise. She attended Kawaii in Manila 2 to support her friend Kaila aka Rainbowholic! Of course we had to take instax pictures together with Tricia! Huge thanks and congratulations to the team of KIM2 and Kawaii PH! The event was like a blank canvass painted and turned into a colorful carnival. Stay kawaii and see you on KIM3! ♥
