Feeling hungry... for fashion? Jenna reviews the food-themes issue of Just Below the Knees, a lolita fashion zine.
Eat Me Ink Me is a Latvian-based indie lolita brand that makes historical and art-inspired designs. Jenna travelled to San Jose for FanimeCon and attended the J-Fashion Trunk Show, an J-Fashion-exclusive vending hall, and while she may not have expected to fall in love with the dress she purchased, love is often unexpected like that.
Jenna participated as a model for The Black Ribbon in the Elegant Fashion Show at Fanime - read about her experience modelling here! (Also check out her report on the Elegant Fashion Show and the Pop! Fashion Show.)
