Hyper Japan London July 27th 2013!!! ハイパージャパン、ロンドン。2013年7月27日!!!

30 Jul

hyper japanHyper Japan is an event that happens every year once or twice a year and it is about…Japan. lol. I always go and this year I went with my friend! The event was really good. There were people dressed in cosplay, girls dressed in sweet lolita fashion, men dressed as women (okaaaay….) lol and much more. There were also performances at the event such as a performance from Siro-A which was amazing, as well as a cosplay competition. The expensive food was also delicious but I thought it was a tad expensive. E.g. a shop in the event was selling drinks for nearly £3…£3! Now either they’re crazy or I’m crazy but one thing I know is that those prices were crazy! lol. I intend to upload a video about the event so stay tuned!
