We have been getting a lot of inquiries regarding what to wear and what not to wear on the Kawaii in Manila 2 convention. (=´∀`)
So here’s a simple Q&A that we hope will clear things up a bit! (๑>ᴗ<๑)
Q: What is/are the dress code/s for Kawaii in Manila 2?
A: Three C’s: Casual (at the least), comfortable, cute. In accordance with our goal to spread kawaii all around, we encourage attendees to wear something that will express their love for (the) kawaii (lifestyle).
We also advice everyone to wear something you feel comfortable and confident in! (｡･ω･｡)
Q: Is cosplay allowed?
A: As cosplay (costume play) is also a part of the kawaii culture, yes it is allowed. ✿ However, we want to make it clear that Kawaii in Manila 2 is NOT a cosplay convention, which means unlike other conventions, it does not only focus on cosplay as one part of the culture. We also want to emphasize that there won’t be any cosplay competitions/activities on the event program. (⌒-⌒ )v
Cosplayers are also advised to wear something comfortable to them, while also keeping in mind the theme of the event, which is “kawaii”. （*＾ω＾）人（＾ω＾*）
