Japanese Girls in Handmade Multi-Layered Fashion w/ “Death” Doll in Harajuku
These two Japanese girls – Maho and Haruka, both 18-years-old – were pretty hard to miss when we saw them walking down the street together in Harajuku.
Maho, with pink hair and plenty of charisma, is on the left. Her multi-layered uniquely-accessorized outfit is not easy to classify. If you were to try, you might make a case for some kind of a post-mori, post-dolly vibe mixed with traditional clothing remake? Anyways, she said that both her tops and bottoms came from the resale shop Chicago. Her different-colored shoes came from another resale shop, Panama Boy. Maho’s numerous accessories include a remake bag that she originally purchased at Kinji, a variety of silver rings, vintage buttons, circle glasses, doll parts, a large tassel necklace, and a scarf hair bow. She’s also carrying a large spooky doll painted with the word “death”. Unsurprisingly, Maho said that many of her accessories are handmade.
Maho’s favorite shops/brands include Panama Boy, Kinji, and Monomania. Her favorite band is The Mirraz. If you’d like to know more about this unique girl, you can check out her personal blog (Japanese).
On the right is Haruka, wearing a mostly white outfit that includes a resale top and dress (or long skirt), both from Kinji, and United Colors of Benetton shoes from her mother. Haruka’s accessories include a really detailed handmade bag, a hat, a floral corsage, a vintage button, a floral ring, and ruffle socks.
Haruka told us that her favorite shops are Kinji and Crisp, and that her favorite band is Radwimps.
