FEATURED IN COSMOPOLITAN FRANCE MAGAZINE! TOQUE DE TOKYO DOCUMENTARY AIRS NOV 15. CUTE, SEXY JAPANESE GIRLS HALLOWEEN COSTUMES.
Quel plaisir! I’m featured in Cosmopolitan Magazine France, in an article about my upcoming Canal Plus France documentary (Toqué de Tokyo). I co-star in the 90 minute TV special with Antoine de Caunes of Eurotrash (remember these photos of us on the Odaiba boat?) He explores Japan’s wildest subcultures with the help of his eccentric guides — which include Yukiro, Naomi, Comte de Sang and the Tokyo Decadance crew!
The Japanese documentary airs November 15th at 8:50pm (France time) on Canal Plus. French readers, I hope you’ll be able to tune in. After it airs, I’ll post insane behind-the-scenes photos and stories on this blog.
This is Halloween, this is Halloween! As soon as we landed in Tokyo (to host/arrange a Norway TV show), my First Mate Naomi and I ran to Don Quixote to gawk at costumes. (Naomi’s top is by Putumayo.)
Japanese costumes are much cuter than Western equivalents. The gyaru and Lolita influences are obvious.
I’ve never seen better packaged witch costumes; check out the trailing glittery sleeves and tiny pointed hat. (It’s similar to the one I wore in my Malice Mizer Kozi outfit.)
Yukiro’s apparently influencing the market: many of the costumes are in his trademark purple and black. I didn’t know Living Dead Dolls made creepy girl outfits.
Perhaps this is an “I’m a mouse” excuse to dress sexy on Halloween?
Halloween costumes are never of the same quality as Lolita/Goth brand items. However, the design and make are better than what I’ve seen in Western stores such as Ricky’s.
In Japan, even the evil characters look cute…
… and do Asian poses!
One of the characters in Horror High School wears this giant skull head.
Out of the costumes in this post, which one is your favorite? Do you buy costumes or make your own?
Bonus photo: we went nuts for the 252 yen sparkle nail polish in the basement of Don Quixote. Which ones do you think we bought?
