While we love our regular Kabuki-cho hangouts — Marz, Decadance Bar — the Spooky Friendship Club also likes to nightrcrawl in new haunts. We invaded Gellonimo, yet another Visual Kei and J-rock themed bar in Shinjuku. (PS: keep reading for a photo preview of my new hair color and skintight latex pirate outfit.)

The red lighting makes everyone look extra creepy.

Gellonimo is a cozy little hole, not far from Club Marz. With glam-metal posters on the walls and ceilings, it felt like we were in a teenage headbanger’s den.

The Marie stuffed blob on the couch is pure lunacy. (Or Luna Sea?)

The girls at the bars were regulars and sang along to the Jrock live videos on the small TV.

Would you like to see more photos from Tokyo Visual Kei bars? I visited Visual Kei Bar Zin, Fu-ki’s Bar Midian, and Osaka’s Moonwalk and Rock Rock. Coming up… photos from Star Cafe.

I’m officially an iPhone addict now. Here’s a sneak peek at my new hair…

cute fat cat, yellow kitten, cutest kitten ever, scottish fold, purple and red hair, cool hair dyes, gothic hairstyles women, female alternative hair, alt models, retro burlesuqe hairstyle, orange dye hair, la carmina hair, makeup, purple streaks, emo haircuts, girls trendy hipster hair, best alternative creative haircuts, experimental hair dye products, manic panic

Naturally, I’ve been snapping and sharing tons of photos of my Scottish Fold baby, Basil Farrow. He’s sad that I’m not taking him to LA…

I leave you with a teaser of my skimpy latex dress and pirate hat outfit photos from today… To see the full outfit, please add me on Twitter (I follow back). This way, you can keep track of my LA invasion with Seba!

Do you decorate your walls with rock posters? If so, which bands are up there? Important question: should I wear more latex?

    Cool *O* I love the colour (I don’t know if dying my hair like that xD)

    • Posted December 30, 2010 at 3:52 am | Permalink

      Thanks! It was orange, then I added red streaks, then purple… so it was a gradual process :)

    I told you that I loved you hair *_* I’m waiting for the amazing L.A. invasion.

    I don’t have any poster but a 京 kanji made with Kyo’s second poem book ilustrations, I simply love my wall now.

    About the latex… well I think it suits you, at least that grey dress so, it’s up to you but latex suits you for sure!!

    Have a nice trip!!

    xoxoxo

    Definitely more latex. It compliments your figure perfectly. More latex pics!

    • Posted December 30, 2010 at 3:54 am | Permalink

      haha we took a lot of photos in the boutique… coming right up!

    I love the purple streaks :D they really compliment the other colours! :)

    As for posters one one wall I have a giant framed Beatles poster and next to it a huge GACKT poster also in a frame (odd combo?) ;D also have a small poster of Ruki from the GazettE and GACKT official calendar on one wall. (plus many GACKT posters, a poster of Ryutaro Arimura from Plastic Tree and one of GazettE I still have to find room for ;D)

    I also have lots of framed drawings that I have made of visual kei artists hanging my room, if you want you can check them out here: http://alienmaskedcreature.deviantart.com/gallery/ :)

      Oh wow, I love how you decorated. That’s the best tribute to VK bands of all – drawings you made yourself. :)

      Have you been to Gellonimo? We should go next time.

    The purple really compliments the other colors nicely, it adds a touch of glam amongst the fire XD

    That bar looks great also. I love little hole-in-the-wall places like that, especially with a theme that draws in people interested in the same things. Its like being invited to a friend’s house =D

    I have an entire wall of my room dedicated to DIR EN GREY. Small promo posters from ordering singles, the poster and ticket from the very first time I saw them live, and best of all is a one-of-a-kind poster my boyfriend drew himself for my birthday a couple years ago <3
    The rest of my walls are covered in posters and pictures. Phantasmagoria, DIO -Distraught Overlord-, kagerou, the GazettE, D'espairsRay (signed <3), 12012, and one from Taste of Chaos signed by D'espairsRay, the Underneath, and MUCC <3

    My walls are full of stories and love XD

      Yeahh that’s exactly the feeling! being in somebody’s cozy den.

      Oooh when did you get the D’espairsRay poster? Rose got hers signed too when we went to the Seattle show. xo

    Love the hair. You see?? Colour is addictive!! Muahahahaaaaaa…

    While I’m not into Jrock at all, and like my laternative stuff, I do love little grungey places like this… Will hunt it out next week when I’m back there, as I’m once again staying in Kabukicho :P

      It is, it is haahha.
      YES you must check out Gellonimo! Next time we’re in Tokyo together, let’s do something with Aki!

  13. Posted December 29, 2010 at 2:17 am | Permalink

    I love the color! I love J-Rock and J-Pop (it’s half of my iPod) but I don’t have any posters on my wall.

    • Posted December 30, 2010 at 3:56 am | Permalink

      Having band posters / flyers around makes me feel like I’m living with kindred spirits haah :)

  14. Posted December 29, 2010 at 12:27 pm | Permalink

    Woah, your eyes look abnormally bigger than what they usually are XD I guess it’s the angle!

    Another good place for some good ol’ fashioned drinking w/j-rock music… keke classic <3 I'm gonna raid your closet one day xD Uraahh but your hair is so pretty~ I like this a lot better than the orange keke You should curl your hair more often like this~

    • Posted December 30, 2010 at 3:57 am | Permalink

      Yeahh I am liking my hair this way too.. gotta mix it up!

  15. Posted December 29, 2010 at 12:30 pm | Permalink

    oh and also… MOAR LATEX ^^ haha you can never have too much of the sexy latex~
    And yes… i do have posters of j-rock groups like Ayabie (the original w/all 6 members), the GazettE, NOIZ, An Cafe, Gackt, HYDE, Moi dix Mois and of course the lovely LM.C & Versailles~<3

    More latex is always fun~ And I only have Diru, Miyavi, D’espa, the GazettE and Kagrra on my walls. Always wanting more though.

    • Posted December 30, 2010 at 3:57 am | Permalink

      An excellent list. Have you seen any of these bands live? So so good.

  19. Posted December 29, 2010 at 11:01 pm | Permalink

    I love it. You’d look super cute in a burlap sack though x

  20. Posted October 18, 2011 at 2:52 pm | Permalink

    Hello! I am interested in going visiting visual kei bars like this one, Bar Zin, and Star Cafe, but how old do I have to be? I’m nineteen and won’t plan on drinking. Thanks! :)

      They don’t check ID, you will be fine ;)
