Here’s an edgy 17-year-old Japanese girl named Kyuri. Kyuri’s multiple piercings (including gauged ears and a nose piercing) definitely made her stand out from the Harajuku crowd.
Kyuri is wearing a “Zombies From The Swamp” v-neck t-shirt dress from Kinji along with tiger-decorated tights from Nadia Harajuku and George Cox creepers. Accessories include a studded hairband, studded and leather bracelets, a handkerchief arm band, and several skull rings. Kyuri handmade her cross necklace out of metal screws and wire (it’s a fantastic punk take-off on the current wooden cross necklace trend in Tokyo). Kyuri didn’t tell us about where her backpack came from, but it looks like a standard Outdoor products model that’s been heavily customized with spikes, buttons, and even a bondage teddy bear.
Kyuri’s piercings are obviously a crucial part of her look – including numerous facial piercings, a huge spiral gauged earring, and even pierce marks on her collar bone/chest. When we asked her about her interests, she told us that her favorite band is Slipknot and her favorite fashion brand is George Cox.
