Cyber-glammed up with Yukiro, and laughing maniacally as our slave-boy pulls us in a rickshaw… All in a day’s work!

Every time Antoine de Caunes makes a documentary about a city, he begins with an epic opening sequence. The Berlin show incorporated a tanker. Toque de Tokyo one-upped it by having Yukiro Dravarious.

Makeup: Here’s a tip… for a strong, painted-on effect, try applying eyeshadow wet. Dip the brush into a bit of water, then add eyeshadow and paint it along the eye. A lip brush allows perfect lip-lines and blending (magenta and purple, in this case).

Yukiro’s hair decoration spikes are pure genius. Can you guess what they’re made of? Hint: the Japanese term is “shokubutsu.”

He’s a regular at Department H, the wild fetish anything-goes party in Tokyo. (I’ve taken TV crews there too.)

The TV show’s opening sequence was straight out of Edo. It involved samurai, basket-head guards and geishas. The crew hung a backdrop behind the Ueno Park shrine, to make it look like olden times.

Yukiro’s nail polish always impresses. Here is a big post about his Japanese nail art.

It was tough to wear a samurai head-cap in the heat and humidity. But Antoine de Caunes soldiered on.

Has anyone here worked on TV shows before, as actors or crew? Have you ever ridden in a rickshaw? It was our first time, and now we’re addicted!

    Antlers! Is Yukiro Queen of the Deers? He should be kept in Nara Park, to rule over the deer kingdom.

    My first google hit for “shokubutsu” says: “Shokubutsu in Japanese means ‘plant'”. Next hits are all about shampoos… But I guessed in an earlier blogpost of yours it’s an dried Aloe Vera. It looks like diabolic crown of some sorts. <33 It's genius. But I'm wondering how the hell Yukiro attached it…

    As for the acting question: I have never acted before on television. I have always postponed to sign with a casting agency.

      haha yeah you got it! Yukiro’s latest stroke of genius.

    Yay! Can’t wait to see the footage.

    I have never ridden in a rickshaw, but I have been on a horse-drawn chariot!

      I’ve ridden an elephant and donkey… next on my list, a camel!
