Mayumi x Asian American Drug Abuse Program

Asian American Drug Abuse Program Fundraiser

One of Mayumi’s first appearances in the USA was made specially for the 39th Asian American Drug Abuse Program in 2011 (this was even before her official brand launch at Disneyland) –

Mayumi was thrilled and honored to participate in this wonderful fundraiser! Here is the original poster created by artist Sean D’Anconia featuring Mayumi-chan in a beautiful pink kimono adorned with Sakura. You can also see her playing the Shamisen, dressed as Daruma, and other kawaii cosplay accents! ☆*・゜゚・*\(^O^)/*・゜゚・*☆

Mayumi doesn’t always understand the meaning of American signs…in Japan, this one is normally accompanied by a question mark “No Photography?”, such as, “why don’t you take a photo?”…this explains the confusion  (੭ु˙꒳​˙)੭ु⁾⁾
