C found a shopping mall near our hotel and promised me I'd love it. We visited on our last day while we were waiting to head to the airport. It was 6 (?) floors of lolita, gothic lolita, visual kei, and probably a whole bunch of other fashion genres I don't know the names of. This salesgirl worked in Nude-n-Rude and I really wanted to buy those tights. I decided against it though, and have a slight bit of regret. I did get some awesome collar clips from her store, you'll see them soon, I'm sure! She was such a sweetheart, konnichiwa Nude-n-Rude girl!
Here's another picture of me looking awkward and incredibly large.
I know it's not 'fashion', by dear lord, the construction workers in Japan rock! They look exactly like something from Gundam or Mazinger Z. If they weren't sporting these awesome reflector suits, they were wearing actual suits. The best dressed construction workers in the world!
We were exhausted and freezing after our night in the capsule hotel when we spotted "The Wanderers" The guy on the left was asking them what they were called, and why they were all matching. Mr. Fabulous Quiff said "We are the Wanderers" and they all laughed and strutted across the street.
This photo was taken in Mandarake, a huge manga store, we're in Broadway Mall, which is an Otaku shopping centre (an Otaku is like a MEGA-geek, and generally describes someone who has an obsessive interest in something) I love how much 'stuff' people accessorise with, so many toys and key rings and dangly bits on the bags/phones/outfits. More cute pastel right here :) Other things in Broadway mall: Vending machine shop, doll heads shop, tiny toys shop, gun otaku shop... I could go on. Basically a shop for every weird (or not so weird, depending on your perspective!) obsession under one roof. There was also a cafe where the girls dressed as cats and you paid them to be nice to you in half hour blocks. (sort of a maid cafe but not really) We didn't get to try it out...
C is just sizing up this duck onesie. Too bad we were both too large. Story of our lives.
