Ahhh you guys are the BEST. I won ~50% of the vote for Best Pop Culture Blog at the Canadian Weblog Awards! Thank you to everyone who voted, and for your continued support — I couldn’t do any of this without you.

We Pirates are having a pillagin’ wild time in Tokyo with the Norway TV shoot. We’ll have Halloween Japan coverage coming up for you (if Tropical Storm Chaba doesn’t sink our ship.) You can keep wind of our updates on my Twitter.

Til then, ready for more Osaka Gothic Lolita Punk store photos? We’ll start with the pretty-in-pink Loli brand: Angelic Pretty. Pastel toys and poofy skirts in the window — the boutique looks like a giant doll’s house.

I was charmed by the 1950s-style dresses at Emily Temple Cute and Milk shop.

My friend bought these gold Dr. Martens boots in London.

The Shinsaibashi district of Osaka is filled with little indie shops. Honey Comb has boned corsets and ballerina poof skirts.

Shocker sounded like a promising place to shop…

… but it turned out to be shockingly bad. I hit my head on the birdcage as I went up the stairs. Inside, there was nothing but casualwear and t-shirts. Now that’s a Shocker.

I’ll soon compile all my Osaka shopping photos and maps in a single guide. Til then, you can check out my Tokyo Goth alt rock guide here.

Another month, another edition of my Global Gothic column for Lip Service. A reader asked me: “Do you know if there is a Goth scene in Seoul? Where can I go for alternative fashion and shopping?”

Indeed, there is a small Goth community, mainly in Seoul and Busan. As you can see above, the fashions are quite influenced by Gothic Lolita. For the full scoop on Korean Gothic, come read my Lip Service article.

Has anyone experienced Korea’s Goth and Lolita scene? Out of the Osaka stores in this post, which aligns most closely to your personal style?

Japanese Word of the Day: Jisaboke = Jet lag
Song of the Day: G-Schmitt – LSD (Japanese punk with a twist.)

    Omedetou Gozaimasu! I mean you definitely deserved that award! Kind of feel sorry for BLOGGITY Mr. Bloggity BLOG…bloggity blog bloggity blog! -bloggity bloggity bloggity! …what the heck does the blog even talk about? *quickly visits blog*Is there…an actual subject for that blog?…since it seems quite…or should I say very very…random. Anyway Angelic Pretty is of course very PRETTY. LMAO I couldn’t help but laugh when I read: “We’ll start with the pretty-in-pink Loli brand: Angelic Pretty. Pastel toys and poofy skirts in the window — the boutique looks like a giant doll’s house.” and then immediately afterwards scroll down to see the picture of the store and over the top happy girl (worker possibly?) in it. HAHAHA classic! So much pretty things and a damn happy worker hahaha. And I’m actually quite shocked that a store named “shocker” has nothing but a bunch of casual t-shirts. …I mean really? How does that go along with the store’s theme in anyway? Well I guess it’s a good business practice since the name can get shoppers curious. Loved reading the article on Korea’s Goth Culture. Can’t wait to see more and more experimentation though!
