this is Halloween, everybody make a scene

30 October 2014

A little something from Aian and myself ♥ I thought of not doing anything for Halloween anymore, since Aian and I practically celebrate the holiday all year round lol. (Permanent residents of Halloween Town.) But Aian said, "that's all the more reason to celebrate it," so I eventually caved in and we did this quick shoot at the very last minute. 3AM last minute, heh. Photo by me, awesome doodles by Aian. Our first collab, lol! Hope you all like it. Happy Halloween! (/*≧▽≦)/*・゜゚・*☆

style inspi // gurokawaii x Halloween-kei

29 October 2014

"Grotesque is my counter-reaction to conventional kawaii," says Kyary. "My room growing up was pink, but I had shelves of manga that had ugly and creepy themes. Those are my two sides. Thinking about it now, I was always a pretty weird kid, I've always been surrounded by grotesque, so it's a part of my worldview now!" (source)

Here's a little Halloween-kei inspiration for those looking for last-minute ideas for the 31st (or for those who like to celebrate Halloween all year round). From creepy-cute to traumatic-cute, take a cue from gurokawaii (グロカワイイ; "grotesque kawaii") enthusiasts such as rokku gyaru icon Amihamu, Mejibray's drummer Meto, and of course, the queen of Harajuku herself, Kyary Pamyu Pamyu. Eyeballs, skeletons, vampire bats, spider webs, dismembered dolls.. check! (˼○̙̂ ̟ ̟̎ ̟ ̘○̂˻) ♥
