Today we revisited Harajuku in order to shop for my final piece outfits. We were more successful than our first attempt, resulting in a completed shopping list. The majority of the clothes came from 2 stores, one who’s name escapes me but it is one of lady gaga’s costume shops.
Which is where we found this beauty. Perfect for the Sakura look.
The second shop we had never been in before, in Japan you have to remember to look up as the shops are layered on top of each other. Today we remembered to look up and found the gold mine of all Cosplay/ Lolita shops.
Here I found the majority of my magical girl look as well as some beautiful red shoes for my product placement look.
After that we ventured to a Harajuku shopping centre. What I love about Japanese shopping centres are they are tall and thin, there are no corridors, the box shaped floor has open shops on all 4 sides of the wall. In Topshop I was given a face mask whilst trying in clothes, the changing room assistant told me it was to ensure my makeup didn’t go on the clothes.
On our way out we saw the beautiful architecture of the shopping centre.
After a few more shops we returned home, I decided to bring all my looks together to make sure nothing was missing.
Here is 3 days worth of Tokyo shopping in 3 photos…
I am very happy with the results and can’t wait to get shooting.
