Fashion Fortnight Feature: We Need to Talk about This Dress

Hello! It’s Papermaiden again. Thank you for the warm welcome you gave me for the previous article. This time, it’s a feature rather than a flash: We’ll focus on one topic, in occurrence, the Love Letter One Piece by Galaxxxy, from their 2016 Spring/Summer collection.

A red sleeveless dress with lavender envelops printed all over. The armholes surrounded by frills and, just like the Peter Pan collar, are white.

This is the official stockphoto, so at least we can see the colors accurately at least once.

If this dress looks familiar, it’s probably because last year, we’ve seen it twice in very prominent positions — namely in the music videos for BPM15Q’s “Hakuchuumu” and Oyasumi Hologram’s “Neuromancer”.

When I first saw the dress, I just assumed it was from a cute, otome-like brand despite the flashy colours of the print. I went through two years of MILK look books from 2016 and 2015, nothing of the sort popped up. This obstacle fueled my ongoing frustration and convinced me to dedicate an entire article to the thing.

Let’s Break Open Sunday With Some Blackened Alt-Idol

Good morning! It’s Sunday. It should be a day for laziness, not just because it’s the last day before the start of the 9-5 work week, but because the entire Abrahamic tradition flat-out says that there’s a day when you’re supposed to do absolutely nothing. I support that notion, but will not be doing nothing, because doing nothing is butt. Something is always better than nothing!

However, if you do opt for the more godly way, I encourage you to break into the mood with this clip of Oyasumi Hologram and VMO playing together. It’s not the raw spectacle of the last time I shared that happening, but it’s still pretty impressive.

This Is for You Oyasumi Hologram Fans

Much like sora tob sakana, your art-rock alt-idols aren’t always going to be the right cup of tea for Homicidols.com, but I know how a lot of you guys dig on Oyasumi Hologram (as do I!), and they just had themselves a big one-man and I think that it’s appropriate to share the set:

Also to share the fact that they have a fan page on Facebook!

Bellheart’s Shallow Grave Shows Always Look So Great

Only three weeks and change remain in Bellring Girls Heart as we’ve known them, and an indeterminate hiatus looms. They are, however, going out in style, and I won’t stop wanting to chronicle and share these performances that they’re doing with their friends in the scene as part of the Shallow Grave tour.

Very important are their good pals You’ll Melt More!, with whom they’ve done plenty of collaborations in the past and for whom, clearly, this whole process is more than a little bittersweet.

Taking us one step closer to Bell Melt Mute!

Okay, Oyasumi Hologram, We Get It, You’re Really Good

Because the universe is my incessant foe, I always feel like I’m jamming slightly irregularly shaped pegs into the heart-shaped hole that is Homicidols.com. Take for example Oyasumi Hologram, who are good and lovely and wonderful and why can’t I just make the sister site for you already I’m going to stop fighting it because this is a delightful little song that sounds like rain and sunshine and STOP STARING AT ME EVERYBODY all at once:

I Come Bearing Oyasumi Hologram

I referenced the coffee shoppiest idols of them all in the forums the other day and remembering that they guested at the Ladybaby reboot, and that made me wonder what Oyasumi Hologram is up to these days. Turns out, they may not be at JAM or any of the other major fests, but they’re keeping busy right at home.

Bellring Girls Heart + Oyasumi Hologram = Chaos

The great curators of obscure idol video over at Idol 2.0 posted this one just a little while ago. OYSM and Bellheart, aka BellHolo, performing the sublime “c a n d y”:


Yes, that’s shamelessly riffing on Blur, and yes, Bellheart are most at home in basements.

And deeper down the YouTube rabbit hole, here’s “strawberry”:


It’s okay to be afraid.

Alas, I couldn’t track down any video of BellCode.

Also, I’m still scared shitless of Kanra.

Damn, Oyasumi Hologram Is Just Pumping out Material

I made what felt like a devil’s bargain with the dynamic duo when touting their album release and video the other day,stretching the boundaries a little bit but screw it, they’re good and Sister Site may never come to fruition, so talk about them.

Well, since then, they’re actually released two more videos, including this very appropriate one today!


Plus, any reference to William Gibson gets bonus points. Continue reading
