Harajuku blogger and singer きゃりーぱみゅぱみゅ aka Kyary Pamyu Pamyu has hit us with another artistic video. In my first post about her video "PonPonPon" I stated it'd be great if her second video were much darker than her first, possibly a very Gothic Lolita Look i.e. Moi-même-Moitié. Well that definitely seems like the theme she was going for here. Naturally, in using the imagery of "Alice in Wonderland" the theme will be dark. The "Alice" story is very dark and magical.
"つけまつける" is the title (romanized as "Tsukematsukeru") which means false eyelashes. As you can see in the video, false lashes are everywhere, even on her boobs. The huge eyelashes in the middle of a pair of hands in the background really freaked me out the way the eyeballs did in the "PonPonPon" video. Freaky or not it's pretty epic!
I can't get over the amazing dancing lions. They had my attention from the very start but as soon as Kyary started dancing like the cute Harajuku girl she is, my attention went straight to her. The lions reminded me of "The Wizard of Oz." Or maybe more "The Wiz" with Michael Jackson and Diana Ross because the person who played The Lion in that movie was a boogying animal!
I REALLY admire the detailing in this rabbit-in-the-hole/intergalactic storybook video. From strategically placed rhinestones in the scenery, or her over sized polyester pink bow, to her intricate Kawaii nails (one of her nails has a person's face on it), Kyary Pamyu Pamyu has her stuff together. It's good to know there are artists out there who aren't afraid to create their own fashion pathway and not care who understands it or not.
Thank you Kyary. MOSHI MOSHI HARAJUKU!
Her second album will be released this January.
Check out my review of the video!
