Here’s what you’ve been waiting for:
In celebration of the RUNE BOUTIQUE collaborative event, 6%DOKIDOKI, inspired by the unreleased Rune Naito images, envisioning a magical boutique with a dapper manager and four enchanting shop girls.
On the night of our RUNE BOUTIQUE event, 6%DOKIDOKI and our sponsors, will be holding a costume contest, inspired by the re-imagined Rune Naito artwork by 6%DOKIDOKI.
If you still haven’t read up on the RUNE BOUTIQUE event, here’s the facebook event’s page:

Need a little inspiration? Help? We’re here to give you a little hop in the right direction.
We took a little trip to Goodwill to find a good starting point. Since there are four equally amazing looks to choose from, we wanted to find some cool threads and props to inspire us. Just remember we decided to do a photoshoot, but contestants don’t have to. All the contestants need to do is portray 1 of the 4 different looks in their own kawaii style.
We found this awesome hat that would have been potentially great for “Beauty”.
These shoes might have made an amazing start for the bright yellow ‘Savon’ look.
We saw these bottles and vases and decided they would be perfect for the two key images “Candy” and “Drugs”!
So after deciding on “Candy” and “Drugs”, Bubble Punch set off to make a few more props for our look!
“Candy” has a lollipop, so we wanted to keep that item. Instead of making it round, we decided to make it heart shaped using some craft foam. We colored it with some markers, wrapped it up with some cellophane, and glued it to a wooden stick!
Voila! We managed to make this in a few minutes!
We also decided to make cute glitter mustaches, since we also had to portray the imaginary ‘Shop Manager’ in the photos.
Grabbing some stiff glitter felt, we drew out a shape we wanted and cut it out. To apply this to our faces, we used some double sided tape, but you can get creative!
Then we put together our outfits for “Candy” and “Drugs”. For the “Candy” inspiration, Michelle was the shop girl, and Yume was the shop manager!
We inverted the roles for “Drugs”. Yume was the shop girl for “Drugs” and Michelle was the “Shop Manager”.
Drawing inspiration from the images was fun and easy. Our outfits were a mix of our love for Japanese street fashion and our own personal styles.
Of course, what is an outfit with out makeup? We put on our faces and went with the theme colors using our favourite and RUNE BOUTIQUE sponsor, Sugarpill cosmetics!
Here’s our final images and outfits!
Candy, inspired by 6%DOKIDOKI and Rune Naito.
“Drugs” inspired by 6%DOKIDOKI and Rune Naito.
Here’s a full look at our outfits:
Of course, contestants are welcome to portray characters from any of the four (4) RUNE BOUTIQUE key visuals of RUNE BOUTIQUE photos for the contest.
Remember, creating unique and fashionable ensembles inspired by the original photos is a key factor. Show us your own inspired style!
We’ can’t wait to see what you guys come up with at the RUNE BOUTIQUE event. Good look guys!
