The fin-de-siecle decadents and I have many things in common, but above all, oh we love our absinthe! Same goes for my Tokyo spooky-spooks — so we gathered at Bar Tram in Ebisu for a date with the green fairy.

I love playing around with colors that match my newly-orange hair. Deep purple and turquoise work quite well, don’t you think? I accented my eyes with Aromaleigh eyeshadows, glitter dot stickers from a Japanese dollar store, and fake eyelashes. My lips are actually drawn and colored with a lip pencil: a nice trick to get a perfect outline and unconventional shade.

Bar Tram (which once had a booth at Midnight Mess) doesn’t have a website, but here’s a map. It’s northwest of Ebisu Station. Look for a giant stuffed raven and empty absinthe bottles outside.

Bar Tram carries over a hundred varieties of absinthe from all over the world. I tried Blanche de Fougerolles from France and a secret, ultra-strong herbal absinthe that isn’t on the menu. The waiter brought sugarcubes, absinthe spoons and a water drip to the table so that we could light our own fires. G-suS drank so much that he turned into the Green Fairy! (“Just keeding,” as Sebastien would say…)

Naomi expresses her happiness at the plush couches and old-time French decor.

Michelle brought tarot cards and gave Comte de Sang an exceedingly negative reading. I’m not sure why Kana is wearing a face mask…

Comte de Sang now has three tongue piercings. My dress is Carina e Arlequin, a Lolita brand. Found it in – you guessed it – Closet Child Harajuku. More photos coming up…

I leave you with a shot of my kawaii rings. From left to right: bought in fairy kei store Nile Perch in Laforet, gifted by Komodokat, and a gift from my mother. The rainbow nail polish colors are from Daiso.

Have you ever tried absinthe? Does it give you hallucinations or visions? The green fairy always brings me lucid, architectural dreams…

    Well, I went to Paris with my mom and some friends, and they tried absinthe (I can’t, I’m not old enough, plus I dislike alcohol), they said it was super strong, but it didn’t make them hallucinate like people said. XD
    I love tarot cards! I have a deck of the original Tarot de Marseilles that my mother bought back in her first trip to Paris. I’m a complete beginner but I think I’m getting the hang of it. It’s so fun. XD
    P.S. Have you ever listened to Emilie Autumn? I think you’d love her!

      Fun! I think the hallucinations don’t really happen… they just make me feel dreamy ahah.

    I adore a good Absinthe! I’m new to Southern Japan (Fukuoka) and have been looking around for someplace that sells it. Absinthe has the same effect on me as anything with alcohol :-) You didn’t really set your Absinthe on fire did you? A shame! Burning it is only good for the cheap, nasty Chech stuff that they try to pass off as Absinthe…that, and Le Tourment Vert LOL!
