An Eye for Details

Jun 17 2009: Colored or special effect contact lenses are hugely popular in Japan, among both fashionistas and cosplayers. With cosplay spreading all over the world, such contact lenses are now increasingly being used outside Japan, too.

Kjeld Duits: I think so, too, Joeyoeyannanna and wowchicken!
wowchicken: So cool. I like the one with the purple tint. :)
Joeyoeyannanna: Woah! the girl on the top’s eyes look really cool

Harajuku Shoot

Jun 15 2009: I went shooting again in Tokyo’s Harajuku. The rain limited the opportunities somewhat, but I still found some cool people.

Summer Ning: I love lolita so much!! awwww !! i like that girl~
Joeyoeyannanna: she’s really cute! i love her hair.
Kjeld Duits: Those rings are incredible, hey! I admire how they find them all.

Pink and Pretty

Jun 07 2009: Angelic Pretty, one of Japan’s top brands for Lolita fashion

Kjeld Duits: @Ellie: Glad we were one of the first to mention it! ^^
Ellie: I love seeing them talk about how they were wishing to open a store in the us… and now its a reality!!! ^^
Squishy: I saw Angelic Pretty in Kyoto but my exchange group was leaving before the store could open, I live for lolita and to this day I still feel like crying at the memory. When I honeymoon in Japan I am going to Tokyooo! I wish to meet Maki & Asuka one day!


Watch Your Head!

Jun 07 2009: Hair bands are usually worn high on the head, but since about last year an increasing number of Japanese women wear them on the forehead. Shades of 1960s hippiedom.

joeyoeyannanna: I tried the braid think across my head and it looked really cool!!
Kjeld Duits: Glad you found it helpful, Joeyoeyannanna.
Joeyoeyannanna: Woah! I love how it looks on the second picture. (the girl with the pink polka dotted head band). I never thought about braiding my hair like that. I should try it some time.

GenkiDamaXL: Acidently here… Scouter Rocks!!!

Kjeld Duits: @Withs: Only the LED lights up. I am not sure, if I understand your question “also are those metallic pipes in plastic tube?”
