Harajuku Punk/Gothic Girl & Guy w/ Face Paint, Platform Boots & Candy Choker

Meet Tensei & Harasume, a super-colorfully dressed Japanese guy and girl we ran into in Harajuku. Their punk-gothic fashion, eclectic accessories, and cool hairstyles caught our attention right away!

On the right, with awesome blonde hair, is Tensei Sugahara. He’s a model, singer, calligrapher, fashion designer, and artist. Tensei’s outfit includes colorful tops from Dark Red Rum (by h.Naoto) and Goh, pink leopard print skinny pants from Hellcat Punks, and massive platform boots from Yosuke. Accessories – some of which came form Japanese brand 666 – include a Sexpot Revenge bag, a choker, studded and spiked bracelets, and leather fingerless gloves. Tensei’s favorite music is Gothic, and his favorite brands/shops include Dog Harajuku and Nude N’ Rude.

If you’d like to know more about Tensei’s art, writing, fashion, and other projects, check out the official Tensei Sugahara Tumblr or follow him on Twitter.

The girl with a cute short hairstyle and cat whiskers face paint is named Harasume. Her look consists of a punk-style torn net top, fluorescent tulle skirts, Vivienne Westwood stockings, and Dr. Martens boots. She said that her outfit came from Tensei (the guy described above), but she didn’t specify whether he made the items himself or if he is the one who did her styling. Accessories – some of which she handmade – include a tiara, a choker made of candy, and a large craft paper necklace. Her bag is a randoseru (Japanese children’s school backpack) decorated with Hello Kitty and other charms.

Harasume told us she likes Japanese designer Yohji Yamamoto, as well as shopping at the Harajuku boutique Dog and Koenji’s famous Kitakore building. Her favorite band is Metallica!
