Costume for Halloween. Do you know what this is?

So I'm thinking of dressing up as a Harajuku Girl for Halloween. The mainstream version are those Japanese girls who are an entourage for Gwen Stefani, but the original Harajuku Girls are just Japanese girls who dress really crazy, with bright colors, Hello Kitty dolls, etc. Do people know what it is? Would I just be explaining myself all night?

  • i think you would just be exsplaining yourself all night long. and it would problaly get old after a while.
    what else would / can you dress up as that might not be soo bothersome..
    just a thought.

  • I do, but I think you would be explaining yourself a bit ... or people will just think you look colorful! lol

    Here's a link to a great make-up tutorial if you are thinking of doing it:

  • I would know what it is and think that would be adorable. Even if they didn't know it was Harajuku girl they'd know you were a Japanese character type thing. With anime (sp?) being popular I think a lot of people would get it and that you should do it! My d has some of the G Steffani Harajuku stuff like a purse etc, if you have something like that you could carry it and have it there to refer to as an example if they do ask! Or carry around one of those ad's from the macys ad that shows all the different perfume bottles that are the girls. I think those are so adorable. Anyway, DO IT! Cute idea!

  • I think I will. It helps that I'm Asian and already look like a Harajuku girl anyway!
