When I was in Art School (my high school) and was doing research for a fashion presentation I came across this book called “Fruits”. This book is about personal style in Japan, Mostly of the “Decora” which are people who drench themselves in cosplay (costume like) outfits, layers, accessories, and are fully animated with Fashion. If you want to mimic the looks of the Decora you can just visit your local Betsey Johnson shop, most of her dresses and accessories fit the mold. However, I cannot wait to go to Japan so I can see it for myself and shop in all the second-hand stores that I found in this book. Most articles of clothing that these people sport are usually from vintage shops. I love that they are brave and don’t mind being colorful or looking like they are wearing costumes from a movie set. I usually shop on ebay for cosplay dresses and coats from Japan and Hong Kong. Here is a coat I purchased last year. They usually make them custom to your body and the coats are usually 2-3 pieces.
I really want this one too:(
Here are some other Decora dressed in Cosplay clothes. Sooo Inspiring.
Go to your local Barnes and Noble shop and get yourself the book “Fruits!”.
