About mowgen (

Mowgen's mandate is to create a community space influenced by art, illustration, and fashion, inspired by the root word "可愛". Our kawaii events differ from regular comic conventions and anime conventions because of our passion of curating cute artwork and fashion from Asia. We strive to create an accessible market and mini con that is free to the public. Our kawaii events cater to those who cannot afford to attend an expensive convention, for those who want to hang out with their friends at a convention, for people who love to cosplay, for those who love photography, and for people who want to do holiday shopping at an adorable market.
