TOKYO DECADANCE WHITE DAY: CYBER GOTH CLUB PARTY PHOTOS. ADRIEN LE DANOIS, KAYA LIVE CONCERT, DJ SISEN & SELIA OF SEILEEN.
With a snap of his fingers, Yukiro Dravarious teleported from Hollywood Noirland to Tokyo Rococo… in time for an all-white cyber-Gothic nightcrawl! Here’s his report on last Saturday’s Tokyo Decadance:
White Decadance differs from the normal monthly party, since you get a discount if you dress up completely in white clothing. The event celebrates White Day, a Japanese tradition occurring every March 14th, where boys give white chocolate to the girls they favor (a reversal of Valentine’s Day, where the girls give boys chocolate).
This year’s party was much better than last year’s (pics above). In 2009, White Decadence was held in Shibuya’s Trump Room, which was too small. I stood out because I wore the very opposite — black.
This year, the fashions were in fine form. (Left: Yukiro with G-suS.) DJ SiSEN’s wig was one of the night’s highlights! So shiny, and he had a whip in the same color.
My new friend and performer Yusura (center) had one of the best outfits. She had blinking blue lights in her headdress that created an elegant effect, and we matched in colour. Selia’s new corset was just perfect for his well-established white ice-queen look.
Some familiar faces from this blog: Takuya Angel, Kana, Hungry Ghost and Uzuki. It was craziness everywhere, and the first few people got free ice cream; sadly I wasn’t one of them. It’s always nice to attend parties at Christion Cafe Shinjuku, since the cathedral-themed restaurant is spacious. And there are plenty of tables where you can sit down or sleep if you’re a bit tired.
Kaya was of course the best performance of the night (remember Yukiro’s report on Kaya at the Jasmine You memorial?) It’s always a treat to watch Seileen (SiSEN and Selia’s duo) on stage. I wasn’t impressed with the Circus de Soliel guys… Hanakengo (top left) was a bit too scary!
Sounds like a night to remember — and how cute was Yukiro’s white cyber rabbit outfit? If you’re thirsty for more Tokyo cyber/Goth party reports and photos, come browse through my club guide. You’ll also find photos of Christon Cafe, Vampire, Alice in Wonderland and other theme restaurants in my new book.
