A few hours before showtime, the line started to snake through a Harajuku back alley.And the door opened...The crowd control was solid, with just 5 folks at a time let in. Of course, after 30 minutes or so, that started to break down, but it was still very orderly.
Just to give one example, Matt Walker (aka Dead Presidents) recently put together a new line of paints called Monster Kolor. Msr. Nagata has already started using the paints on his custom creations, some of which were part of KC II. So I think this kind of show is great for not only showing off kick-ass design work, but also for pushing the envelope and inspiring next-level productions.
Ilanena-san pointed out to me this is a painted vintage Kenner Wampa!
Here's what I picked up:
Before then, there are two other shows opening this weekend, so I'll have lots more to blog about. Keep yer ears on!
