Forgotten from last weekend
I've mentioned the nice young people or freaks, depending on your perspective, who dress up outside Harajuku station and stand around having photos taken, as their parents did when their ages, e.g:
I have quite a few pictures too, but haven't quite got around to developing them, let alone putting them up. Oh and they're known as Cosplay (as in costume players, or something like that).
last weekend, amongst all the goths, baby dolls, wedding outfits and whatnot, we saw a girl in full Nazi uniform, complete with swastika arm band. Well, full in rubber I think with huuuuge heeled boots. Blame the shochu, I can't remember exactly!!!
Now, I don't know if she thought this was cute, or was just plain ignorant or if it had occured to her friends to say anything.....
I also wonder whether a youth in any other country than Japan would get away with this without being arrested or beaten up.....
