In Japan Santa sleeps with the fishes

In Japan Santa sleeps with the fishes…

            …and it’s ok.



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

            …and its lighting might be a bit fishy.

Sexual harassment for cross-dressing in Nagoya Japan

Japan’s biggest model pantsed in Nagoya Station!
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].


The giant statue typically changes outfits to mark different occasions and is currently being dressed as Naruto. But recently when Nana-chan was standing tall in her Naruto outfit, someone came by and fully pulled down the mannequin's pants | 2014nov21:

Japanese retro-look is really retro

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.
See the official photo gallery at:

"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}.

Let’s ZOOT!

Ah, so Japan.

Japanese—all look the same?

Japanese people often say that Japanese girls look all the same and referred to them as Ryosangata Joshidaisei Ryousangata-Joshidaisei-kanji “mass production female university students” (details).
