If you’re happy and you know it clap your… mohawk?

Oh man. I hate to push the ‘weird Japan’ angle too much, but it’s hard not to when you come across stuff like this. It’s a commercial for the Gatsby featuring an unusual group of men all sporting astoundingly tall mohawks.

Mohawks that clap. Read the rest of this entry »

Japanese Bobsled team rockin’ a wicked paint-job

Via The Hopeless Romantic (great blog, check it out) we find these great pictures of the Japanese women’s bobsled team’s b*tchin’ ride.

I haven’t been following bobsled, and to be honest I don’t really intend to, but you have to expect that these ladies are winning some fans in Vancouver with their brilliant paint-job.

Check out the pics below. Read the rest of this entry »

Olympic thong and other transparent trends

There has been some buzz (but not a whole lot) on the internets about the Japanese speedskating uniforms. Why, you ask? Check out the lower section. Yes, that lower secion. Is it a thong? No, just a clever design to make it look like risque undies on the inside. What do you think? Is it too much? Read the rest of this entry »

Kigurumi: Stuffed animals that you wear!

You may not be familiar with what kigurumi are, but if you find yourself feeling a little chilly during the winter, it might be worth your while to find out.

Kigurumi are literally a stuffed animal that you can wear, and they can be quite cozy if your apartment is on the cold side. Over on the Akinaiblog website there is a wide selection of kigurumi to choose from. I’ve selected a few of my favorite and listed them below. Though I encourage you to go over to their site and browse the others as well. (Just be sure you come back to 3yen right afterwards!)

Which one is your favorite?
Check out the Batman suit at the bottom!

Star Wars Mannequins in Japan

Usually Japan’s fashion districts are pretty high class. It’s a safe bet that this photo was not taken in any of those areas: Read the rest of this entry »

Japan still loves luxury

We always knew that Japanese women had a taste for luxury brands, but I’m not sure if any of us knew the extent of it. An article on entrepreneur.com sheds some light on this:

Japanese consumers, like others in Asia, carry on their obsessive love for luxury brands. Women head the charge in Japan. A staggering 92 per cent of them own a Gucci bag, 57 per cent own a Prada one, and 51 per cent own a Chanel bag.

Sweatpants Ninja with Ponytail

sweatpants-ninja-youtube-ponytail

As far as I know, there is no special rule that says ninja are supposed to wear a certain uniform. But after watching this video on youtube, I can’t help but think that there should be such a rule. Because this, folks, is just wrong. Read the rest of this entry »

Get your favorite cartoons on your nails

Getting your nails done in Japan can be a pretty amazing experience, as the artwork here is just outstanding. You can personalize the process as well by choosing your favorite cartoon character. Having said that, it’s pretty inevitable that Hello Kitty would somehow end up stuck on the end of someone’s fingers like this: Read the rest of this entry »

The Snuggie: A sleeping bag you can wear!

I wrote about Uniqlo’s roomwear last time, but that might not be warm enough for some of you up in the more northern regions. For you guys, I recommend the snuggie. This is a half-sleeping bag, half-pajama monstrosity that looks surprisingly fun to wear.

What do you think? Could you see yourself hiding out in the on a cold winter day? I’m tempted. Looks nice and toasty! Read the rest of this entry »

Uniqlo does it again, this time with ‘Roomwear’

One of the reasons that I really like Uniqlo is that they somehow manage to take really simple clothing and present it in a way that makes everyone think it was woven from unicorn hair. I really don’t know how they pull it off, but somehow they manage. Their site design is always fresh and very slick, making their brand a desirable one rather than something that’s cheap. If Steve Jobs and Apple computers ever got in the business of selling cheap-ass bargain basement clothes, the result would be something not very unlike Uniqlo.

When I saw their line of ‘Roomwear’ I instantly knew that they’d hit yet another bullseye. I mean, who else thinks to launch a line of clothing as being specifically used for lazing around the room. The ┬ámarketing department at Uniqlo must have sounded like something straight out of a Seinfeld episode for this one:

“Jerry, it’s Roomwear! You wear it (dramatic Kramer pause) in the room.”
“You wear it in the room?”
“That’s right, in the room baby!”
“So they’re pajamas?”
“No, pajamas are for sleeping. These are only for wearing in the room. They’re Roomware.”
“Not everyone lives in their room like you Kramer. Some people have JOBS!”
