BABY DOLL: GOTH FETISH CLOTHING & ACCESSORIES STORE IN HARAJUKU. VENICE MASKS, LEATHER CORSET, LADY GAGA DRESS.
After visiting the Gothic Lolita tearoom-boutique Abilletage in Harajuku, I took NHK Kawaii TV to Baby Doll in Harajuku. I was keen to feature this Goth Fetish boutique in the program, since it’s been independently run for over 10 years.
The lively manager, Mirano, bound me tightly into a custom corset with French braiding. My waist has never been so small.
Baby Doll’s original clothing includes form-fitting outfits worn by Lady Gaga. These photos don’t do the iridescent fabric justice.
Yukiro Dravarious models a military cap next to a romantic chandelier.
You can pick up everything from tutus to play-torture equipment here.
I especially love the Venetian masks, customized with an eyeball in the center.
Watch out, NHK cameraman… there’s a little red riding crop behind you!

PS: My Halloween plans are INSANE this year! Celebrating in a country I’ve never visited before. Can you guess where I’ll be?
