Ganguro (ガングロ, Ganguro?) is an alternative fashion trend among young Japanese women that remains evident today. The Shibuya and Ikebukuro districts of Tokyo are the center of ganguro fashion.
In ganguro fashion, a deep tan is combined with hair dyed in shades of orange to blonde, or a silver gray known as "high bleached". Black ink is used as eyeliner and white concealer is used as lipstick and eyeshadow. False eyelashes, plastic facial gems, and pearl powder are often added to this. Platform shoes and brightly-colored outfits complete the ganguro look. Also typical of ganguro fashion are tie-dyed sarongs, miniskirts, and lots of bracelets, rings, and necklaces.

CUTIE DOLL: Cutie Doll is a brand of companion dolls with a difference. While Candy Girls (Japanese real dolls from a previous post in this thread) cost about 600,000 yen (5,641 USD), Cutie Dolls cost only 50,000 yen (470 USD) - not bad for an incredibly realistic companion loaded with the latest technology from the land of the rising sun.
