FanimeCon J-Fashion Model Application form

Thank you for your interest in this year's FanimeCon fashion shows! We will be hosting two fashion shows, Elegant and Pop!, that showcase a variety of J-Fashion styles. You may choose to apply to model in one or both of the fashion shows.

Each fashion show will take place from 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm, and models will be expected to be available four hours in advance for prep and to receive walking instructions.

As a COVID-19 precaution, we are not providing hair-styling or makeup. Models may be expected to style themselves to match a designer's specifications and will receive this information in advance. Models may also be expected to bring accessories, legwear, petticoats, or wigs, depending on the brand that they model for.

The J-Fashion Department will reach out via email after the application deadline. Participation in the fashion show is dependent on brand selection, and not all applicants are guaranteed selection. If you are selected, you will receive an email of acceptance. You will have a limited amount of time to reply to this email and officially confirm and commit to the fashion show.

Additional COVID-19 Precautions:
Models will be asked to wear masks as much as possible while getting ready in the dressing rooms, and will be masked on-stage. We will be limiting the number of models in each show in order to not overcrowd the dressing rooms, and models will be asked to social distance when possible. However, due to the potential close-contact nature of fashion shows, we must ask that anyone who does not feel safe in close proximity to others not apply this year. As a reminder, all models must provide proof of full vaccination at badge pick-up. Please review the FanimeCon COVID-19 Vaccination Policy for more information.

For more information, please read the full Model FAQ here.
