"Pedobear, the Internet joke that sparked a full-blown media panic, [was] on the loose at New York's Comic Con this weekend, dancing to Michael Jackson and handing out candy. Somebody call the militia! Protect our kids from this dangerous threat!" [Gawker]

Enter their world in this special fashion show and panel featuring Rika Ishikawa and Gashicon"

Pieces will range from haute couture to everyday clothes with a Victorian twist and be modeled by passionate fans -- the women and men at the center of the movement."
