BEEPS AND BLIPS FROM OUTERSPACE
SPOTLIGHT: KAWAI! JAPAN HAS 'CUTE' DOWN TO A SCIENCE
For example, here's a music video by Kyary Pamyu Pamyu called Ponponpon! The video itself is wonderful since it blends kawai Harajuku style and absurd visual elements. The creators of the video were certainly having fun making something new and colorful.In the video, Kyary Pamyu Pamyu wears bloomer shorts, white gloves, ruffled socks with big pink Doc Martins, which all make her look extremely childish... in Disney proportions.  For the curious, she's 18 years old and recently released a new album called Moshi Moshi Harajuku (もしもし原宿).Tokyo Fashion has an excellent write up on the video and some links to some of Kyary's wardrobe choices.Here are some of my favorite screen captures of the video.  The large woman dancing made the video perfect!
