Halloween from Japan
Posted on March 26th, 2008 at 2:26 pm by Noshi

Last Monday was this so called Spooky Fest in Utrecht, The Netherlands. You could call it another Japan-related event with stuffs you can buy, and a Japanese band called The Candy Spooky Theater performing. I got home with two magazines, two cds, a dvd, a stickerset and some autographs of the band XD

For the ones wanting to read further: short review

For the ones who don’t: pictures

Shocked yet? 😛 Japan holds great, but also very weird treasures. But oh well, that’s Japan for you XD

Lately I’ve been doubtful about buying
CDJapan’s so called Fukubukuro happy packs

There is a custom in Japan when merchants show their appreciation to customers and sell “FUKUBUKURO (HAPPY PACK)“, which are bags contained with unknown items worth more than the sold price.

CDJapan would also like to express our gratitude and hold a limited sale for the first time to our foreign customers!! It’s a bag filled with a full-outfit, carefully selected by the staff of SEXPOT!!Loads of new items which were made just for this occasion!

The “FUKUBUKURO (HAPPY PACK)” comes in two types with a Normal Pack and Custom Pack.

The normal pack would be around 60 euros excl. shipping costs. But I’m afraid for the import fees I might have to pay in addition to that. I had to pay 55 euros extra over my last order because it was shipped by EMS =/ and that sucked hard, almost a third of the actual value of the items. I do have heard that if the value of the items is under the 80 euros, there wouldn’t be any import costs, but then again, you are just not sure =/ Does anyone have experience with that? Any tips?

Nosh I gotta say your blog kinda pawns it looks stellar this is the first time I have browsed it. I had some time to kill so I stopped down and listened to your playlist and ELLEGARDEN not bad at all the other songs were catchy as well.

Spooky Fest looked interesting seemed pretty wild & crazy (or at least it looked to be XD) keep living it up! Clicked your links and I have to say I will be referring to you as “Noshi all around the internet” you’ve got nice little setups w/your reviews/pics everywhere haha V-XD

Just out of interest, because it really made me sit back in my seat in surprise, why was that one girl holding a pink dildo? And why did she ‘attach’ it to the doll? >_> I certainly wasn’t expecting that when I browsed the pics o.o

Ah…….so what else is new? This kind of stuff goes on all the time here in L.A. especially, in West Hollywood. Marilyn Manson and the rest of the so-called “scary Goth” crowd, rule certain parts of the Los Angeles club scene. Interesting, Noshi….thanks for sharing. Love some of your music. I am always interested in what passes for fashion these days…..will have to send you a link to the latest “shoe craze” from Japan….talk about killer looks while you kill your feet wearing them…just wait…..^^)

@ DChaosBlade:
wanna know something else even more funny about that dildo? XDD
The “girl” holding it is actually a guy XDDDD
Yeh crossdressing is rather common in Japan 😛 especially in some kind of bands and stuff. But it’s all for show and looks, nothing to worry about. It’s something like drawing a goatee XD The dildo was also just of fun, entertainment. As that guy is supposed to be the more pervy bandmember.
