Visual Kei Fashion

Early August, the disbanded visual kei band Phantasmagoria gave a surprise one-time-only concert at Amerika Mura in Osaka. We photographed some of their fans.

Phantasmagoria was formed in Osaka late 2004 and disbanded in 2007. Because this free concert was a one-time event of a band that doesn’t play together anymore, it attracted a huge crowd.

The crowd went wild when the screen at Amerika Mura’s Sankaku Koen moved up revealing the stage with four former band members. The band may not have been active for quite a while, but the fans clearly remembered all the moves.

Many of the fans wore wonderful clothes, so we were able to get some great shots. Even after the concert was finished, we were able to photograph several fans. We also found other cool people, so it was a very successful shoot.

Thanks to all the great fans for their cooperation, we really enjoyed meeting you!
