Famous for its weirdness, loved for its uniqueness..yes we’re talking about novelty goods/ book store, Village Vanguard. Founded in 1986 in the town were JWS’ headquarters are located;Nagoya.
Ever wondered what beef flavored chewing gum tastes like? Are you a romantic who loves candlelight….what about some sushi shaped candles?
What do you give to a friend who has everything, well in my case I was presented with a Doo Doo head mask…yes a turd shaped mask…I still don’t know whether to be insulted or …. , still I can’t wait for Halloween to start!
Or what about these “new high” horror inspired half tights,
They might form a perfect match with these ears…
And to round of the look what about this awesome kurukuru maki (around and around) ring.
They have loads of truly interesting t-shirts for the more courageous under us.
The fake black/red/white /blue/pink bra tee, which is a shirt with a fake rip showing a pair of impressive breast hold together by a black lace brassiere.
And for the lads too!
What about the chic (that’s how they describe it) roach on meat shirt…just the perfect thing to wear when you’re shy and don’t know how to start a conversation..
Truly special and a bit disturbing is this t-shirt with a print of the Japanese com(ugh ugh)edian; Egachan, famous for walking around half naked and being gross. (yeah it’s Japanese entertainment!). Worn in a conventional way it’s just a Tee….but when you pull the bottom of the shirt over your head, you become Egachan! Is this the start of a new trend?
Well this is just a pinch of what they have for sale, check out their site and you’ll find the weirdest, thought provoking( Why would somebody buy this???) and truly Japanese unusual stuff. Village Vanguard novelty shop
