World's Grandest Party of Lolita - full translation!

Earlier this week we posted a mysterious video from Baby, the Stars Shine Bright - perhaps you saw it!


Since then, many people have been talking about what it really means - and unless you read Japanese, the info page is not much help either. Well, here's a consolidated English translation to help you out! (We posted the info page translation to our original post yesterday, but now we have a video translation too.)

VIDEO

ANNOUNCER:
Shimotsuma City is looking for MOMOKO RYUGASAKI
It's been seven years since Momoko revealed she was the daughter of Himiko and left Shimotsuma City.
She is traveling all over Japan wearing dresses with lots of frills.
If we cannot find her, we will make all Lolita girls get together in Shimotsuma and choose "Momoko No.2" as the princess of Lolita.

All of Lolita girls... Let's gather in Shimotsuma on October 23rd.

MISAKO:
Hello everyone, my name is Misako Aoki. Today I visited Shimotsuma City where the movie "Kamikaze Girls" was made. This year, I received a request from Shimotsuma City to find Momoko, who disappeared from the city. I am trying to look for any clues from Momoko but finding her by myself is very difficult. Therefore, Shimotsuma City decided to hold the world’s greatest party of Lolita at the Sanuma Friendly Festival in Shimotsuma on Sunday October 23rd, and there we'll find Momoko No. 2 on the stage and authorize her as a Lolita princess. However, since I cannot decide the person to be Momoko No. 2 by myself, super VIPs of Lolita industry Novala Takemoto-Sensei (Kamikaze Girls Author), the president and the executive director of BABY, THE STARS SHINE BRIGHT will help me as judges. The person who becomes the princess will wear BABY's newest dress and walk in the fashion show with me. And if you can't easily get to Shimotsuma City, you can sign up for the tour. On the second day which is Sunday, you can join the event to be Momoko No. 2. I am looking forward to seeing you all in Shimotsuma City.

---------------------------------------

We still consider this info incomplete, and we will bring you further updates as we have them! Right now there is a tour page linked from Hankyu Travel's English web site (along with the video), but it is in Japanese - we are working to find out if there's going to be an English language tour option.

To answer a couple of the common questions we've gotten:

* They are not filming a new movie
* This is a live fashion contest/party and Kamikaze Girls tour
* "Momoko No. 2" is a metaphor - they are looking for a new Lolita Princess
* The organized tour is a 2 day tour from Tokyo to Shimotsuma, including dinner at the cafe from Kamikaze Girls with Misako :)

We will try to continue bringing you additional info about this interesting event!
