Itokin Park Exhibition @ Kaiju Blue

Kaiju Blue has done it again, with another top notch exhibition showcasing a leading indy sofubi designer. The ongoing Itokin Park show has it all: customs, show exclusives, a table full of goodies for sale, and a display featuring an extensive retrospective of the designer's artography (not sure if that's a word, but if it isn't, it should be!)

The custom pieces were all sold out, but again KB scores by leaving them out for display so others can enjoy seeing them before they enter private collections.

Here's what I picked up:

There you have it. Another day, another cool show at Kaiju Blue. One of the great things about the shop is its location - on the first floor of the Marui One department store in the heart of Shinjku. Hopefully the thousands of people who flow through the store and catch a glimpse of the exhibition will take a closer look and become interested in indy sofubi. I saw a couple of young dudes stroll up to the IP item booth. One of them spotted the Lucha, honed right in, and said "Kakui!" (cool)

So, congratulations to Itokin Park and Kaiju Blue! Can't wait to see what's up next on the sofubi horizon.

Thanks for the write-up Andy. I really wish I could have been there to see it myself but I'll have to settle for living vicariously through your eyes for the time being.
