Hosted by:

Come  see our attendees' beautiful fashion walk submissions! We are also  holding a coord contest, where participants have a chance to win prizes  from the participating brands. All J-fashion styles welcome!

For more information and to submit your entries, visit the Fashion Walk info page! Deadline to submit is October 30th.



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: Afterlife. 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 types  of J-fashion are welcomed and encouraged. We look forward to seeing how  you wear your favorite J-fashions!

The Fashion Walk will be streamed as a panel on Saturday, November 5th 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!

Theme: Afterlife

We  invite you to explore the concept of the afterlife, as well as how the  living choose to honor those who have passed. This can mean delving into  your personal religious or spiritual beliefs or drawing from your own  cultural practices. Mourning themes, religious iconography, and macabre  imagery are all appropriate sources of inspiration.

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


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 30th, 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,  November 5th.

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.

Your contest entry can be submitted for a chance to win in one of the three theme categories:

Elysium - Sweet lolita, classic lolita, coordinates with a heavenly air

Tartarus - Gothic lolita, EGA, dark or macabre coordinates

Arcadia - All other J-Fashion, coordinates that reflect duality or celebrate the in-between


SUBMISSION DEADLINE: October 30th, 11:59 PDT
