Kyary Pamyu Pamyu releases Halloween single “Fashion Monster”

Kyary Pamyu Pamyu will always hold a special place in my heart.

A few months ago, by some amazing luck, I found myself in Tokyo during the release of her first album.

Nothing gave me more joy than walking around, window shopping (damn is that city expensive!) in the Harajuku district than hearing “PonPonPon” being blasted by a massive pink van.

However, this time around Kyary has ditched the girly for the more macabre. She rocks out in a room filled with every Halloween icon (minus the famous film killers of course) to a more J-rock sound, filling it with her trademark thin voice.

The song may have a pretty low replay value for me, but the video is top notch, I love anything that commits to a theme (especially when it’s seasonal!), and it’s Kyary Pamyu Pamyu. Fashion Monster, you’re a winner.
