mask schoolgirlEverywhere you go, Japan is full of surgical masked wonders (3Yen.com / 2011-01-30/) wandering in packs of public anonymity.
 
 
However, the fierce facial mask wearers seeking beauty are even more fun. what-in-hole japan
As I reported before in The WHAT goes in the WHOzits? (3Yen / 2012-07-07) , all the Japanese cosmetics firms heavily promote specially impregnated sheets of skin care masks resulting in silly sights like this… ↓

Den4, the 3Yen correspondent-at-large reports…
Just when they didn’t want to have perverts photographing up skirts in Japan, they come out with this.

New light-emitting, color-changing “hikaru skirt” illuminates your legs for the world to see
rocketnews24.com 2015/Jan/19
Hikaru skirt (hikaru means “shining”) is a skirt with LEDs attached the light created a pleasant illumination effect on the wearer’s thighs…there are miniature gyro sensors (which sense rotational motion) inside the skirt. In other words, every time you move, the pattern of lights and colors in the skirt also changes!

What’s more, Santa’s Christmas tree can get a little wet

Sexual harassment for cross-dressing in Nagoya Japan

More sexual harassment* for Nana-chan. She was pantsed while she was cross-dressing as Naruto Uzumaki to promote the upcoming movie, The Last: Naruto the Movie [Wiki].

Q: Why are there so many vintage shops in Tokyo—I was wondering why they are so popular and how it all start?

A: In the postwar years, Japanese have worn America fashions for that “bad boy/girl” image by buying clothes on the black market that were sourced from American GIs stationed here.

Actual vintage clothing shops in Japan have been around since the mid-1960s with the first wave of wannabe hippies. Japan’s first real vintage shops like Chicago (since 1966) have catered to the retro-look for a long, looooong time (think of the greaser/rockabilly look).

By the 1980s, vintage clothing shops were huge with Japanese street fashion and have remained so ever since. For Japanese fashion victims, レトロ–vintage clothing offers the best way to achieve an over-the-top look while wearing actual/functional clothing that has been already vetted fashion-wise.

Japanese trans love

One of the fun things about Japanese TV are the huge number of poorly-convincing trans-people featured on variety shows. One the least convincing these trans-entertainers, IKKO*, had a wardrobe malfunction recently.

Miss International Embarrassment

It’s that time of the year again for the Miss International bimbo-beauty pageant, which this year is being held on November 11th in Tokyo.

"Miss Japan Lira Hongo parades during the national costume event…"

At least Miss Japan doesn’t have to wear a "national costume" embarrassment like Miss USA and Miss Nicaragua {snark , snark}.
