Everyone has been asking me when my Tokyo appearance on Andrew Zimmern’s Bizarre World will air. I wish I knew! At the moment, I’m working with the show writer on my segment. Rest assured I’ll give you plenty of notice before it hits TV screens (on Travel Channel, Discovery and other networks worldwide).

On the second day of the shoot, I met Andrew Zimmern at the Shinto Bunny Temple Girls cosplay cafe in Akihabara. I wore a Baby, the Stars Shine Bright dress and (appropriately) a pink bunny sticker on my cheek.

The cafe was… not normal. The bunny maid told us there were three instructions: don’t use your cell phone, don’t speak loudly, and keep going forward. We took the elevator down and instead of a cheery restaurant, we found ourselves in pitch darkness. Thank goodness I’m not claustrophobic — because what happened next was as chilling as the trapped-in-a-coffin scene from Kill Bill. You’ll have to wait until the episode airs to find out!

Cosplay queen Yunmao Ayakawa (left) took part in another segment, and we ended up having dinner together. She ordered a dainty cake and sweet tea… aww! Coming up next: photos from the final location of the Bizarre World shoot.

I went to a Steampunk Haunted House in NYC and was mighty impressed. A haunted theater, accordion player, girl in glass box, man in a toxic mask dragging a shovel until sparks flew… don’t miss this.

More festivities ahead — what are your Halloween plans? What will you be wearing?

Song of the Day #227: Still catching up on V-Rock 2009 footage. D’espairsRay Redeemer LIVE is really great.

    “what happened next was as chilling as the trapped-in-a-coffin scene from Kill Bill.”

    Ah! Just thinking about that makes me cringe.

    That haunted house sounds neat, but I don't like being spooked like that…

      I honestly think what ensued at the Shinto maid cafe (which wasn’t even supposed to be scary…) ended up being more bone-chilling than any haunted house! It really took us by surprise… and was just so weird! Again, I am really glad I am not claustrophobic!

    The dress was a find from Closet Child Harajuku… the cute detail – the lace, bows, etc – made me get it immediately!

    Andrew's ema is really cute, did he do the drawing? Oh and that cafe sounds very interesting indeed!

  12. Posted October 29, 2009 at 2:54 pm | Permalink

    Yes, he did! ^__^
    I explained the Shinto tradition of leaving wishes on the wall. Many of the plaques had kawaii drawings on them, so he made one himself.

    Uhh I think I'm going to that Steampunk Haunted House for Halloween! I've been torn between a LI Halloween house party and a night in the City (my daily life is torn between LI and NYC why should Halloween be different?). I was thinking your book signing than a night with friends, but who needs friends if they don't come with you to Steampunk haunted house! And/or “Dances of Vice” a glam tribute to Oscar Wilde or the Scarlette Parlour Day of the Dead Feast.

    Although truth be told if I do all of that on Halloween I'll impress myself, and wind up having to take off work on Monday as I have to fill out progress reports for my aprox. 120 students ugghh.
