Steam Ball by h.NAOTO for Christmas!


by Leela McMullen, posted December 22, 2014

Christmas in Japan can be a bit of a drag for those isolated from their families and missing the gatherings and traditions from back home. Those who are single have it even rougher as Japanese Christmas is basically a glorified Valentines Day. This can result in a Christmas spent as if it were any other day of the year—but fans of visual kei and steampunk fashion have another option this year!

Arranged by Fenix, who will also be a performer of the night, renowned designer h.NAOTO will be producing the decoration and atmosphere for an all-night steampunk ball to be held at LEG.A in Roppongi on December 25. With the steampunk theme coloring the evening, it will be like a fairytale come to life amid live performances and events that offer up a fusion of art and fashion. There will also be a special STEAM shop with limited items designed by NAOTO so don’t miss your chance to make some unique purchases.

If you’re hanging around Tokyo for Christmas and looking for a fun way to spend the night after a concert, head on out to Roppongi! The event starts from 11pm and ends at 5am. All you’ll need is a photo ID proving your age as over 20 and ¥3,500 for admission which includes two drinks to get you started. Cloak is free so you can keep warm on the way in before revealing your outfit for all to see.

Of course, the dress code is steampunk or formal, so sling on those corsets and grind those gears. It’s going to be a very unique Christmas!
