I mentioned in my last post how I visited Ryo, who manages the Sexpot Revenge store in Harajuku. Ryo I’ve known for quite a while now, and we’ve partied at events like the Tokyo Decadance White Party, and at the Decadance Bar. Sex Pot Revenge is a brand I like and wear a lot; last year I posted about the Sexpot Revenge Spring/Summer 2010 collection. It is a really good place to go for cool and casual alternative gear, especially if punk is more your thing than Visual Kei.
We do seem to feel the need to pull faces in photos; this was the last time I saw him in September at the Decadance Bar:
Onto the store itself: as always, it was full to the gills with punk & gothic clothing, jewellery and accessories.
There were some fantastic fake fur coats, and tartan jackets
The black jacket above has a bottom section that is detachable, so it can either be a more casual punk jacket, or an EGL type coat.
For more items you may be tempted to buy, hit the Sex Pot webstore
Again, back to the real store. Everywhere there are things of interest, like the skull on the table, posters, flyers for gigs, hair falls…
I also spied some silver and neon jewellery in various spooky designs, and settled upon this shiny skull ring for myself
Another point of interest is the gruesome critters in places like the ceiling – so remember to look up when you’re in the store!
So do pop in when you’re in Harajuku or Osaka. In Harajuku, the stores are just off the main drag of Takeshita Street; in Osaka it is near Parco in the Shinsaibashi area.
And here is my ring, when seen with 2 rings I bought in Closet child – a bony hand one, and one with an eye
Have you been there? If you go, do make sure you say hi to Ryo!
