Seems like we see that Japanese fashion is branching out to some parts of Tinsel Town. Two blogs: Frisky and Stylelist report that Kirsten Dunst was seen walking the streets of Akihabara in her colorful ensemble. The blogs have said that she’s dressing up like “human anime”.
I think that a part of me is happy that a Western icon like Dunst actually gets out of her shell and pull off a look like this. Although I’m not really all for the EPIC SPLASH OF COLORS, I think the outfit is nice. I didn’t like how the fashion blogs mentioned the “how to dress like human anime” bit — especially Frisky’s article. I think it would have been better if it was worded as “Japanese fashion” rather than “human anime”or “manga look” because I’m pretty sure cosplaying from manga or anime actually meant deriving your costume from a character as well as portraying said character. The blogs reminded me too much of local media giving out the message: “in order to have a great cosplay, you just need to shell out lots of cash” — which is hateful by the way.
I haven’t really done much blog entries that deviated from figures, so this is one of the first… I think I’ll be adding more in the future though :)
