Meanwhile, in Japan…

In Funny, Great Job!, Stupid on June 12, 2010 at 8:40 pm

Why is Japan so weird? The guys in this pic (source) are just hanging out at the park. The size of the hair must indicate status in their Black Shadow gang. The guy in the middle looks particularly sharp with that foot high hairstyle. In reality they are probably just a bunch of fanboys of some greaser manga, hanging out in Japan’s costume district.

    Although they are near that area, these guys aren’t doing “cosplay”. They are “rockabillies”…into the late ’50s / early ’60s young Elvis, Stray Cats, etc.

    Years ago this area of Tokyo had a lot more variety in the groups that congregated there on weekends.
    But the “cosplay” groups and the “rockabilly” groups still hang out there.
