Harajuku Boy

(click to enlarge)

Once in a while I get a really good challenge that takes me outside my usual comfort zone. This post was inspired by Swagga's Harajuku Boy. Harajuku is a district in Japan where cosplay meets innovative streetwear. It's a great place for people to dress up and hang out with their friends. One Harajuku style that has really taken off is Decora. (It's like the Lisa Frank of fashion styles. lol) It's colorful, youthful, mismatched, and over-the-top in accessories. Basically it turns fashion into a toy, in fact, wearing some toys is a good idea too. lol And it's not just for girls, the guys are rocking this whimsical style too. The Swagga Harajuku Boy shirt, pants, and jewelry are on sale now at Sanarae. You can pick them up in either of the 3 color options for shirts and pants.  Adding a cool J-rock touch to the look is the Mateo hair by Ayashi. I used the wild colors from the Summer pack.  Animated Chainsaw by Nerox is a gacha at the Gacha Garden. From Jian is the delightful Silly Shibes gacha. This little guy will follow you and sit when you sit. He even barks every now and then.  The swagga pants come with a lower leg, but I wanted to add the legwarmers by Krankhaus. They are actually made for Avatar 2, but I was able to make them work. They come with a hud with many excellent and colorful texture options.  From NOMAD is the Tossing Barrels arcade game backpack. It's animated! Very cool. From Neverwish is an older gacha with fun shoes that work great for the Decora. Sometime in the near future, a new 2016 version of the shoes will be released. From Apple May is the bandaid gacha. You can find it at her mainstore in the guys gacha section.  From [ni.Ju] are the face sticker stars gacha, and the group gift metallic nails appliers. The group is free to join.  For the head, I used the COCO Doll Male face with Ikon eyes. Feeling like you want to try this style? Check out the video linked below for more inspiration. This picture was taken at the lovely Blur sim that recreates the sakura lined canals of Japan.
