The ultimate collection of HYPER JAPAN fashion and cosplay is now available online! HYPER JAPAN’s first ever photobook “J-STYLE”, which showcases the outstanding quality of cosplay and Japanese fashion worn by hundreds of our visitors, is now available at our HJ online shop.
This photobook provides a unique opportunity for devotees of Japanese fashion as well as avid cosplayers to see themselves and their friends immortalized in print, while casual readers can marvel at the stunning ensembles and get inspired to join in the J-style movement! Collated by a team of photographers and editors at our summer 2014 event, J-STYLE’s hundreds of colour photos exhibit 10 different Japanese fashion genres ranging from “Sweet Lolita” to “Fairy Kei” and “Gyaru”, along with a diverse cross-section of cosplay from dozens of different anime, films and games.
In addition, short introductions to the history of Japanese fashion and cosplay within the UK provide a handy backdrop for readers unaccustomed to these niche scenes. J-STYLE Vol.1 gives a valuable insight into Japanese fashion and culture, whilst also being an official space for this coolest of communities to proudly display their well-coordinated ensembles. This visually stunning photobook will be available at a special price of £5 when purchased before the 15th of December at our online shop (http://hyperjapan.co.uk/hyper-japan-shop/).
