How to Make the Most of The Authentic Information From A Kawaii blog

The best way to learn more about fads and wacky imports from Japan is to read a Kawaii blog. You will learn a lot about the different types of “squishies” and cell phone straps that are very trendy among teenagers. The mascots are soft and shaped like a baked product. It could resemble a character as well and are a version of the stress ball. These scented delights can be attached to a lanyard or a cell phone strap.

Kawaii refers to anything cute and this includes cosmetics, handbags, clothing, etc. Nail painting is also a rage in Japan and teenagers like to have lacquered fingertips with nail art that is inspired by famous designers or prints. Japanese fans use the term to describe anything that is cute. The origin is of no consequence. The mascots may have large heads, big round eyes and have their own birthday, name, likes and dislikes. They are for the most part deformed characters that defy the law of gravity in their appearances. The more exaggerated the proportions, the more “kawai” the response that they get from the teenagers.

If you walk on the streets of Harajuku you will note various styles that are not part of the mainstream but people don these styles. For instance, Decora focuses on very bright colors such as baby pink and blue. They are normally worn as accessories, such as hair-clips in the shape of desserts, strawberries or bow charms. Many teenagers can be seen wearing bright colored sock, leg warmers and sporting a sanrio-type bag.’

Lolita on the other uses pastel colors and the style is either Rococo fashion or Victoria. Accessories for Lolita, Mori and Gal are available in stores such as Paris kids, Wonder Rocket and Liz Lisa that can be seen in Harajuku Fashion Street. The other kawaii shops are Candy Stripper, Closet Child and SBY Happy Room among others. Here you can get cosmetic items, monster/character themed accessories and punk-fun clothing.

If you are planning to visit Japan, there are many things you should read and know as it will make the trip more exciting. If you are travelling with your teenage children, you will no doubt be tempted to visit the Harajuku fashion street and watch them go gaga over the kawaii collections in various shops. You will find certain areas where the teenagers hang out dressed in punk clothing trying to resemble their favorite rock starts. Each one tries to dress more outrageously than the other and wear shockingly bright baby pinks and blues.
