Alternative fashion bloggers play by their own rules. No tangerine tango or mint here. Turquoise is our color of the spooky season!

Yukiro Dravarious attended the “final” Midnight Mess, the Tokyo Goth night that’s been running since 2002. (Maya’s moving to Berlin, but will be back for the anniversary event in September.) Here’s his report, along with an announcement about his drag performance this Sunday at the Pride Parade. Read on…

Last Saturday, I wanted to surprise everyone by cosplaying as one of Japan’s new icons: the vocaloid Hatsune Miku 初音ミク. On the train, I was snapped by several otakus and other curious random people.

Midnight Mess icons Maya and Diva Selia started off the night with a dramatic bondage opera act. Maya got her hair done by the excellent stylist and makeup artist Fu-ga, who offered these services at a booth. There were also stalls for absinthe and Sumio’s vampire-teeth.

I greeted people at the door for the first 1.5 hours, and was delighted to see that many people came even though there were two other major parties going on that same evening.

Three bands played: Sino Re-Build Projects (Industrial/Noize/Electro), Delhezi (young fresh boys playing Loud / Screamo / Metal Core), and Super Dragon Punch!! (aka Rankor) from Belgium (Industrial/Technoid/Hardcore/Electro). Surprisingly my friend Simone was suddenly announced as the keyboardist for this live. They did a great job.

DJ Te2, Statik and Maya (the house DJs) played classic Mess songs and the dancefloor was crowded with children of the night shaking and breaking to the dark-electro, cyber-goth, 80s beats.

Bust my buttons, it was an epic night indeed! Can’t wait for Maya to come back to Japan and I wish her the best of luck in Germany. You can party with her before she leaves at Vampire Garden at Decadance Bar, on 5/19 (info here.)

    Yukiiiiiiiiiiiii, oh my god, your cosplay is amazing! I love that teal is so in right now, because it’s one of my favourite hair colours to do.

    It looks as though it was a fabulous night – I love the turquoise hair! ♥ I hope Rainbow Pride goes well – I used to go to the annual Pride in London. It was always a fabulous day – our parade virtually closed down the city, and when we went past the posh hotels the people would come out onto the balconies to watch. After the parade came a festival in one of the parks – one year the Pet Shop Boys were playing!

    I love the clubbing outfits! Very pretty :) Especially the girl with the feather shawl.

    You get to go to so many industrial/ebm/darkwave nights! There are so few opportunities for me to put my falls and goggles and fluffy leg warmers on here >.< Do you get trad goth nights, too, like Siouxsie, The Cure, The Damned, Sisters of Mercy, etc?

    • Posted April 27, 2012 at 9:48 pm | Permalink

      Yess and there are more to come!! I actually love the traditional nights best; nothing like good ol 80s Goth to dance to!

    Since he says Miku is a ‘new’ icon, I have to ask, is he actually a fan or did he choose her cuz shes so dang cute?

    • Posted May 3, 2012 at 9:40 pm | Permalink

      A bit of both, I think!

    Selia (I think that’s Selia in the white dress, apologies if I’m wrong) looks lovely as always. <3

    • Posted May 8, 2012 at 1:29 am | Permalink

      Yes indeed! Selia is always lovely

    Good job guys and epic cosplays! :) It’s a nice to have a research material out here for future cosplays. I’d like to be a Hatsune Miku on the upcoming cosplay event here in our country. The hairdo seems hard to find good thing I’ve pre purchased one from http://www.cosplaysushi.com which saved me an ample amount of time.
