This is 21-year-old Maniko, a friendly green-haired Japanese girl that we met on the street near Spinns Harajuku. Maniko’s hairstyle is known as “odango” (buns) in Japanese. We’ve been seeing variations of the double bun hairstyle a lot around Harajuku recently.

Maniko’s outfit features a graphic t-shirt from Shibuya’s Galaxxxy, a silver miniskirt from Sly, pink socks, and boots from the Japanese brand Love Boat. Her purple heart-shaped handbag is from the legendary Harajuku brand Milk. Accessories include bloodshot eyeball earrings, multiple bracelets, a lightning bolt ring, and various other rings. She said that some of her accessories came from 6%DOKIDOKI and others from Monomania.

Maniko told us that her favorite band is the amazing J-rock trio Ling Tosite Sigure. Her favorite fashion brands are 6%DOKIDOKI and Galaxxxy (aka Galaxxxy Rocks).
