PUG goes to Japan with Amazon Eve! (Day 1)
YOU GUYS-I got asked to go to Japan by Pinup Girl Clothing (the company I work for) to style Amazon Eve of American Horror Story “Freak Show” for a show called “World’s Amazing People” run by Fuji Tv! It was last-minute but boy was I excited as I have always wanted to visit Japan ever since discovering the street style book “Fruits” long ago when I was a fashion major in School! It made the trip better that I would be styling a character from one of my favorite shows too! I didn’t think I would make it through the 11 hour flight but it was pretty relaxing and as soon as I got off the plane and through customs, I had a group of people stop me to ask me a few questions on film about my personal style (I looked like a mess?) but it was a great introduction to the charm of Tokyo and gosh the people were so nice. So yeah, I am on some show somewhere in Japan haha. Anyway, when I got to Tokyo it was pretty late and I was pretty jet lagged (there was nothing pretty about it) so I touched down with the crew at the hotel and K.O’d. I met Amazon Eve at the airport and she was sweet as pie and such a fierce woman so I was excited to be styling her for this show in pug goodies. On the night we got to the hotel we were greeted by the hotel staff who were wearing the cutest uniform! Can I work here? The hotels are pretty neat. They are super cute and all have robes and slippers and cute little condiments.The hotel we stayed at had a beautiful Japanese Doll Festival (Hinamatsuri) installation. Hinamatsuri is a day for families with daughters to pray for their healthy growth and happiness. These handmade small dolls (Tsuruchi Kazari) are decorated by kimono cloth pieces and all have a special meaning. Peaches are believed to ward off evil spirits, plums are symbols of chastity, red-eyed rabbits are messengers of the gods that have supernatural powers, and flowers mean beauty. Isn’t it gorgeous? And we’re off!It was the first day of shooting and Amazon and I were ready to kick butt!Here’s the look I gave Amazon Eve for her first day of shooting. She wanted to wear her hat and scarf so I styled her around those two pieces in the Pinup Girl Clothing Lauren top in green and the Laura Byrnes trousers in black.
Then I used her own accessories to complete the look. It was cold so we used her snow boots, black leather gloves, leather belt, and her leather jacket. Fabulous! Worlds tallest super model with the worlds smallest man. So adorbs! He was such a character and so sweet!He fits in her tote!Ok, lets talk about Jyoti Amge also known as “Le Petite” on AHS. She was the cutest, sweetest, most adorable lady and such a ray of sunshine. Her family was also very sweet.
Samantha was another person I met that was a part of the cast on this show. She is a kick-ass mom with goals. I had such a good time with them all. Jyoti and Amazon are two peas in a pod. They were inseparable.<3 Show time!One of the tallest men in the world and Amazon who could give him a run for his money in high heels haha.
Cutie pie Jyoti! The crew! These cute spectators looked like potential pug lovers so I gave them cards! Ok, so this is totally my favorite thing in Tokyo. Chocolate cream filled sandwiches! I want to play! Color! Hi! These pencil sharpeners reminded me of my mom. She collects them!Second stop, the Trick Art Museum of Illusion!
This place was hella cool. Look at these two haha! Don’t wanna fall in there! How many animals can you spot in this painting?Angles Ya’ll, Angles!
See the dinosaur?Third stop, to see the giant Gundam!
How cool! The third stop was a restaurant but it was too small so I went wandering around until the shoot was over doing things like this.. Can I take the giant crab home pretty please? YUMMY fake foods!
Stay tuned for Day 2!
