This is a translation of the newest contest hosted by Baby, the Stars Shine Bright and Harajuku Pop. It’s the second installment of their At Home Lolita Project. It’s almost the exact same format as the two previous contests. This is the combined information from both the BtSSB and Harajuku Pop pages since the Harajuku Pop article has a lot more detail than the BtSSB info page.

Filled with love for Kumya-chan ❤︎ A Heart Fluttering Sweet Style❤︎
We created the “At Home Lolita Project” with the idea that you can have as much fun staying home as you can going out. At this time, we wanted to use social media as a way to connect with others, so we created this social media contest.
We received a lot of submissions from both our first contest with BABY featuring at-home styles, and our second contest with Pirates featuring dark styles. We were able to see how you enjoyed unique lolita fashion in your home.
Therefore, as we now have to live our lives with the coronavirus, we decided to continue the “At Home Lolita Project.” This time, the theme is “Filled with love for Kumya-chan ❤︎ A Heart Fluttering Sweet Style❤︎”
Submitted coordinates should be a sweet style incorporating you having fun with BABY’s popular characters, Usakumya-chan and Kumakumya-chan! Of course, we’d like to see photos with of prints with Kumya-chan, but we welcome also having Kumya-chan with you around the house.
If you have the new Kumya-chan slippers or the new Kumya-chan mask to prevent infection transmission, please submit photos of some of you using them in your current at-home styles.
People from overseas can participate in this contest by using Twitter too! The winners will be featured on a special article on Harajuku POP’s website and will also be receiving prizes. From the bottom of our hearts, we’ll be waiting for your submissions! ❤︎
