"Tokusatsu 2: Revenge of the Kaiju” @ Q Pop Shop (Nov 16)

EVENT PRESS: “Tokusatsu 2: Revenge of the Kaiju” is the second annual celebration of the Tokusatsu genre and comes in time to help mark the third anniversary of Q Pop Shop opening its doors in Little Tokyo in Los Angeles, CA. On Saturday, November 16th, the gallery will open its doors from 7pm to 10pm for an opening reception and the show will end on Sunday, December 1st.

Over 60 artists pay tribute to live action Japanese sci-fi shows and film, names of which are listed on their Facebook events page, while we have some sneak peeks at selected artworks to share! As well there will be a Kaiju costume contest with prizes given to the best homemade Kaiju suits.

"Originating from the words tokushu satsuei (迚ケ谿頑聴蠖ア special photography) this genre is known for utilizing various special effects. For those of you who grew up watching shows such as Godzilla, Ultraman, Kikaider, as well as many others, this is a great opportunity to celebrate your favorite shows and characters. For those of you who are less familiar with this genre, this is a great opportunity to get to know this amazing and influential genre of film and TV. Those less familiar might not even realize they have grown up with the shows, such as Super Sentai that was adapted for US audiences and well known as Mighty Morphin Power Rangers."

BTW, I had drew 2 piece for the show, I will show them here later.
