Welcome to Tokyo Royale, Japan-a-rama geekery since ‘06! Owned and ran single handedly by cat obsessed #grrrlboss, experienced Alt Model, Cosplayer and Stylist Kira Krueger.
As a huge fan of Japanese Horror films, Tokyo Royale was named after the Japanese film ‘Battle Royale’ The Tokyo Royale brand helped bring Japanese Lolita style and Kigurumi/ Cosplay hoodies to the mainstream with the opening of the boutique in the World Famous Independant Retailer; Afflecks Palace in August 2006- The first of it’s kind to open in the UK! With the focus on plus sizes (no fat shaming here!) ethically made goodies and an anti-fur stance, I did wholesale of my designs to boutiques worldwide, had fashion shows abroad, sponsored models, internet sensations like Jeffree Star (who had the limited edition oversized Gloomy Bear fleece clawed hoodie) and Goth bands like Razorblade Kisses.
By 2014, I could see my mission in Afflecks was complete and moved to online only and conventions. Since then Tokyo Royale styling has been getting noticed and published in Neo Magazine, Sci-Fi Now Magazine, Mym Magazine, online sites such as Geek X Girls and Super Cosplay Girls as well as countless other International magazines every month.
After spending many years styling other models and cosplayers for shoots, I am proud to now offer luxury starter packs for this awesome styling through my monthly mystery boxes. There is a choice of the ‘DeadGrrrly’ mystery box, which features my exclusive Lolirot Couture Jewellery and the ‘Full Steam ahead’ Steampunk mystery box, all lovingly handpicked by myself, Internationally published model and stylist Kira Krueger.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for giving an independent that values handmade, limited edition, one- offs- the chance to earn your custom. We hope you will find a treasure that you will show off and cherish for years to come and don’t forget 10% of corset sales goes to PDSA to help pay for the treatment of sick animals.
Love Kira and her rescue kitties: Miffy, Tilly, Cleo and Moomin face.
