Kyary Pamyu Pamyu to come up with a cutting-edge outfit if she gets to perform at Kohaku Uta Gassen

On October 28th, model and singer Kyary Pamyu Pamyu participated in the ‘Hello Halloween Pumpkin Parade 2012‘ at Omotesando in Harajuku, Tokyo.

For the event, Kyary transformed into a ’spider bride’ with a black lace veil and a shocking pink dress adorned with candies. Speaking of extraordinary outfits, she also revealed that she’s still keeping her schedule for New Year’s Day open, in case she gets to perform at this year’s 63rd Annual Kohaku Uta Gassen on NHK.

She commented, “(If I get selected) I want to raise the bar with a never before seen outfit and wear a cutting-edge outfit.” Nobody doubts that she would be able to come up with yet another unique outfit. She’s even expected to add herself to to the list of really special Kohaku Uta Gassen outfits that already includes enka singers Kobayashi Sachiko and Mikawa Kenichi.

Kyary also spoke about her ’spider bride’ outfit for today’s event and said, “I decided to go with a dark-themed wedding dress, because I haven’t yet worn a wedding dress and there are not that many opportunities to wear one.” Even about her own wedding in the future, she said, “I’d rather wear a dress that has a certain impact than a pure white dress.” She continued, “It’s my fourth Halloween as an artist and I’m really fired up this year. There are even some children who say that I’m scary. (laughs)” More than 1,000 children participate in the ‘Hello Halloween Pumpkin Parade’ every year, which celebrated its 30th anniversary this year.


Kyary, guuuurl, Sachiko and Kenichi are light years ahead of you boo. They were doing this before you were born.
Kenichi left, Sachiko right - on a giant statue of herself.

my expectations are low if she does get invited, I don't even find her regular outfits to be that crazy,the majority are just tacky messes of ribbons,glitter, and bows...including this shit

looking forward to seeing the enka singer's outfits and stages,Sachiko's gold lion last year was beyond epic and besides them of course Ayu and ever growing dresses

Not even cutting edge like Lady Gaga. Don't even think of trying to be as awesome as Kobayashi Sachiko.

This outfit is just plain nice, but definitely NOT cutting edge.

Kyary's look is so meh to me. It'd be different if she could coordinate her outfits at all, but most of the time she wears one or two cute pieces buried under a pile of other tacky and unnecessary shit. :/ which is obviously what makes her SO YOONIQUE to people on Tumblr but w/e

Favorite stage costumes, Arama? I love the stuff Nomiya Maki performs in.

Tumblr is the reason why I'm not for Kyary for the most part.

Stage costumes don't usually stay in my head but I always loves what JUJU wears, as well as Hikawa Kiyoshi and Ayu. The one that leaves a lasting impression whether good or bad is Kimura Kaela for me.

She has a funny definition of "dark-themed" and scary.

i wish there was an Arama post about the most extravagant kouhaku performances. Or can we just turn this into one of those?? I love them, but never know where to find them.
liime_arix 29th-Oct-2012 01:38 am (UTC)
We can make this into one. Youku usually have performances.
memorian 29th-Oct-2012 01:47 am (UTC)

is sachiko going to be at kohaku this year though? I remember there was some huge drama between her and a female manager of hers earlier this year and that her contract with nippon columbia was cancelled and she moved to an indies label. there were some doubts as to whether or not she'd be there this year but I dunno if that was ever addressed because I don't know too much about this situation/haven't followed it that closely.
