Save the date! February 20, meet Misako Aoki!

Some of you may be aware that Lolita model and official Japanese "kawaii ambassador" Misako Aoki is coming to New York for the Tokyo Fashion Festa on February 19. Well, the next day, she will be at our store! And she wants to meet you guys!

Here is the basic info:

When: Saturday, February 20, approximately 2PM
Where: Our store, 170 Avenue B, New York NY 10009 (between 10th and 11th Sts.)
What: Misako Aoki meet & greet

This will be a pretty informal event. She just wants to meet some area Lolitas, take some pictures and sign some autographs. She may use some of these for a new Japanese magazine (Gothic & Lolita Ensemble) and TV Asahi TV show about her. You may end up in the Japanese press! There may also be an American camera crew.

Lining up
Because we're a small store with limited space, we will be handing out numbers, and we will be letting in approximately 10 people at a time (or fewer, depending on the size of her crew). To ensure that everybody can see her, there will be a time limit of 10 minutes per group, unless she wants a particular person or group to stay for an interview. We do expect that everybody will get to see her, so don't worry if you have a higher number - it just means you may have to wait a bit longer. Because she may actually come early on Saturday, we will begin handing out numbers starting Thursday, February 18.

(UPDATE: The line is reopened. Remember, send an email to info@tokyorebel.com with the subject "Misako Aoki event line number" and your full name. If we still have spots available at that time, we will send you a number.)

Please bring ID! We will be checking names vs. numbers to ensure there's no line cutting or other shenanigans.

To clarify: email us only after 1PM EST on 2/18. This is to give everybody an equal chance to see the instructions first. Those of you emailing us now will need to do so again after the start time.

Please come dressed in your best Lolita outfit!

UPDATE #1: Added information about the press and potential interviews.

UPDATE #2: Added information about the time and line numbering system.

UPDATE #3: Capacity has been reached! Thanks to all for exceeding our expectations!

UPDATE #4: Line reopened!

UPDATE #5: She is planning to be at our store at 2PM, and we will open the door to the first group soon after.
