Looking for Fashionable Bones


JAPANESE STREETS goes on a search for skeletons

Bookmark and Share

In Harajuku I ran into, and photographed, Kenta Koizumi, a 21 year old fashion student wearing a HENRIK VIBSKOV hat and sweater, Fugahum pants and Miyata Yasuhiro boots.

But what especially caught my attention were the amazing Nozomi Ishiguro skeleton brooches. Really subtly done; both fashionable and fun.

Kenta’s cool skeleton brooches made me look for skeleton related items in our eBay affiliate store.

I found a few things that I liked. Especially these turquoise skeleton head beads. I plan to get some, but am not sure yet how to use them. Would you wear these? And how?

Then there are these really cute pink animal skeleton charms. Cheap, too. Just $2.99 a piece. You can buy a whole batch of them and still have money left over.

Another thing that I liked were antique keys. I had no idea that these were called skeleton keys!

Don’t you think they’re cool? I’ve actually seen quite a few people in Harajuku using them as accessories, mostly as pendants or belt accessories.

Antique Keys

That inspired me to specifically search for skeleton pendants and skeleton brooches. Now I got some really fun results!

Keys are big right now. Kind of a steampunk thing.
