Goth girls come out to play… at night with Kenzo-A! The Rituals designer has a new monthly Goth music event, The Head Shop.

What’s spookier — my luminescent makeup, or the stuffed dog in Seba’s pants?

First, we filled up at a Shinjuku izakaya (Japanese pub). I’m carrying a souvenir from my coolhunting travel TV show… soon, you’ll find out what it means!

One of my favorite flavors: shiquasha, a green Okinawan fruit. Delicious, mixed with alcohol.

We ran into frightening individuals in front of Studio Alta (a common meeting place in Shinjuku).

The Head Shop has live DJ sets all night long (techno, house, Gothic, electro) — as well as bands and fashion shows. This “Kenzomas” event was at Shinjuku Motion (next to Club Marz, where Midnight Mess and Tokyo Dark Castle go down).

    Loving your style!! Looks like you had fun! Just wondering though, do you ever get ‘tired’ of goth clubs and some nights just want to head to a ‘normal’ club?

      If I might answer for La Carmina, for we goths these ARE normal clubs!! We can’t stand going to clubs playing R’n’B and mainstream music…it’s just not us. We don’t always dress up as much mind you – but in Tokyo you can really go all out…anbd sometimes we do!

    I am more of a Metalhead/Punk, yet I embraced Goth because of my fascination with Darkness or the Darkside.
