Isn’t life random? In January 2010, I wrote a blog post about my friend Ako’s punk brand, Blablahospital. I included two photos of her main model… who happens to be Sebastiano Serafini! We were both friends with Ako, but didn’t end up meeting each other until Halloween 2010.

Ako made me this punky red dress, which was featured in Kera Magazine. What a fun and unique design; you could never find this in a big-box store. Sebastiano tried to put on the dress… and got stuck!

We did a Blablahospital shoot with Shannon Cottrell, photographer for LA Weekly. She drove us near the Hollywood sign, at the “batcaves” where the Batman TV series was filmed. Seba’s hat and shirt are by Blablahospital.

By accident, Shannon caught these incredible shots of me dancing at the mouth of the cave.

Punk fashion — is it alive and thrashing in Japan? Got any favorite punk bands or designers?

        yes I can see it was windy because of you hair, but it only gives the photoshoot a better image, at least to me
