About Us

Founded in 2019 by Rae Dickey, and Jess Houghton Kei-Con is an alternative and J-fashion event with a focus on lolita and ouji. It runs for three days semi-annually over the first weekend of October in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

Since the first year Jess has had to step down, but with the hard work of our extremely awesome staff, and the support of our lovely attendees Rae has been able to keep the event going.

Our main programming includes a Friday Evening Swap Meet, Saturday Fashion Show (coordinated by GHOSTGiRLGOODS), Saturday vendors (coordinated by SPOOKYSPARKLEPARTY), and Sunday Tea Party (with panels, games, and guest Q&A throughout the weekend coordinated by Strawberry Teapot Shop). Dolly Momoiro will be coordinating the official afterparty on Saturday Night featuring performances by Dolly Momoiro, and her Monster Magical Girls, Toshi Salvino (Dollfille), and Natasha Nebula (Dollybox.online/Dollfille's Canadian on-site manager). With the hard work of Tooth Decay Accessories who has been wrangling donations we're very pleased to announce that we'll be able to offer prizes for all the games this year, and very exciting raffles each day. (Seriously guys everyone has sent us so many nice things to give to you TTnTT)

In the past we've brought in Lady Sloth, Lovely Lor, Last Week Lolita News, and Angelic Forest.

This year we have Haenuli, Iris Garden, Belladonna, Lolibrary, Raine Dragon, and Dollfille with Dollybox.online.

We see about 150-200 attendees each year over all three days, and host 10-15 exhibitors on-site, 10 exhibitors at the remote vending table, and 10-15 panels and games.
