California-based Anime Expo is known for bringing over some pretty big and influential guests, and this year is no exception.
This year’s Anime Expo will feature Dynamite Tommy (ex. COLOR) as a guest. He is arguably one of the most influential figures in the visual kei industry; as well as being a former vocalist himself, he is best known as the founder of record label Free-Will and the president of sun-krad. His extensive and impressive resume when it comes to producing includes DIR EN GREY, sukekiyo, DECAYS, MERRY, BAROQUE, Arlequin, A9, and many more.
Besides bringing merchandise from all of his associated bands to Anime Expo, Dynamite Tommy will debut KOMACHI2266531DarkLolita, a Gothic-Lolita style fashion brand for plus size women. The lineup’s chief designer is none other than DaDa, former vocalist of VELVET EDEN.
Anime Expo will take place between July 1st-4th at the Los Angeles Convention Center. A more detailed schedule is set to be released soon. For information on tickets and other events, visit Anime Expo’s official website.
Whether you’re looking for some unique Lolita fashion, merchandise from some of your favorite bands, or your chance to meet “the godfather of visual kei,” Anime Expo is an event you definitely need to attend this year.
