GRAMARYE FASHION WALK

FASHION WALK

Submit your J-fashion coordinates to participate in our Fashion Walk! All entries will be compiled into a video that will be streamed publicly on Twitch as a panel during Gramarye: The Resurrection. You can also enter your coordinate in our Coord Contest to win prizes from some of our participating brands, but entry in the Coord Contest is optional and not required in order to participate in the Fashion Walk video. All J-fashions are welcomed and encouraged to participate. We look forward to seeing how you wear your favorite J-fashions!

The Fashion Walk will be streamed as a panel on Saturday, October 9th on the Bay Area Kei Twitch channel

Please keep in mind that, while you may enter the Fashion Walk with as many coordinate submissions as you like, you may only submit one coordinate per category to the Coord Contest, and are only eligible to win one prize pack. This means you have a maximum of three contest entries, but can only win once!

Deadline for voting is Sunday, October 10th at 5:00 PM PDT, and we will announce winners at the Closing Ceremony

COORD CONTEST

You can opt-in to submitting an outfit to the contest by attaching a corresponding photo of your coordinate entry along with your video submission. Prizes include a selection of items and discount codes from our participating brands. The deadline for submission is October 1st, 11:59 PM PDT. Winners will be chosen via popular vote. A link to the voting form will be provided to attendees after the fashion walk airs on Saturday, October 9th.

Submission Rules:

  • You may submit multiple looks to the fashion walk, but only one entry per category for the Coord Contest.

  • All participants are only eligible to win one (1) prize pack.

  • If you won prizes at our last coord contest (Ursa Major 2), you are not eligible to win prizes in this coord contest for Gramarye. However, we still encourage you to submit your looks to the fashion walk!

  • Outfits must be a recognizable J-fashion

  • Gramarye is an all-ages event. Please ensure submissions are PG-13 and do not include extreme sexual or violent content

  • NO cosplay or costumes

  • NO replicas

In the spirit of fairness, while you are free to post your outfit to your personal social media and mention participating in the contest and our event, please do not ask your social media followers to vote for you or repost the link to the voting form. We will disqualify anyone who actively campaigns for votes. 

If your submission does not meet the above criteria, it will not be showcased in the Fashion Walk. Submissions will be screened, and we reserve the right to reject any entry we deem inappropriate.

Video format guidelines:

  • Landscape/Horizontal filming preferred

  • NO LONGER THAN 20 SECONDS. Longer videos will be cut down. Background music/noise will be cut out.

  • You can submit pictures if you are unable to film a video.

  • Upload the video somewhere it can be downloaded (e.g. Dropbox or Google Drive - NOT YouTube).

    • Please remember to make it public so we can access your video

Show off your outfit however you think it will look best! Closeup cuts, walking shots, panning up/down, and waving/looking at the camera are all good options! Please see the below videos for examples.

Theme: Gramarye
You are not required to match the theme, but it is encouraged!

Gramarye is a word that means "necromancy, magic, or enchantment." You may choose to dress in motifs that emanate the occult, or sorcery and witchcraft. This is our Halloween event so you may also draw inspiration from this or a general "spooky" theme.

 

To submit multiple coords, please submit a new form for each submission.

By submitting your media via the entry form, you acknowledge and understand that you are granting Bay Area Kei a limited license to edit images and repost to the Bay Area Kei social media channels, including (though not limited to) Facebook and Instagram.
