style inspo : gurokawaii x Halloween-kei

October 29, 2014 No comments

"Grotesque is my counter-reaction to conventional kawaii," says Kyary. "My room growing up was pink, but I had shelves of manga that had ugly and creepy themes. Those are my two sides. Thinking about it now, I was always a pretty weird kid, I've always been surrounded by grotesque, so it's a part of my worldview now!" (source)

Here's a little Halloween-kei inspiration for those looking for last-minute ideas for the 31st (or for those who like to celebrate Halloween all year round). From creepy-cute to traumatic-cute, take a cue from gurokawaii (グロカワイイ; "grotesque kawaii") enthusiasts such as rokku gyaru icon Amihamu, Mejibray's drummer Meto, and of course, the queen of Harajuku herself, Kyary Pamyu Pamyu. Eyeballs, skeletons, vampire bats, spider webs, dismembered dolls.. check! (˼○̙̂ ̟ ̟̎ ̟ ̘○̂˻) ♥
