Zipper/Steppers vs. Senseis (part 2)

As every blogger of an obscure corner of the pop market knows, there's no better way to temporarily banish upsetting thoughts over poor record sales than with a good picture and a good link. I'm also eating cake right now. This helps too.

1. The good picture.

Here's Halcali in this month's issue of teen fashion magazine Zipper. They appear in おしゃれスタアX人気ブランド (Fashionable stars meet popular brands) modeling the label RNA. Although I don't have much love for labels like RNA and Candy Stripper, they look pretty good here and the title "fashionable stars" suits them nicely as well.
There's another shot of Haruka in her latest blog entry.

2. The good link.

I'm late getting to this. So late, in fact that she's already changed hosts to Livedoor, but Jordi wrote a great comparison piece on the PV's for Rip Slyme's Steppers Delight, and it's offshoot, Halcali's Electric Sensei in her Rip Slyme blog (new page here). Read it if you haven't already.

Glad to hear you enjoyed it! (I for one aren't too proud of those sort of things I write. I get too excited and just end up writing a sort of very very fangirl made piece about how beautiful the shots are)

I was actually wanting to get that Zipper magazine as soon as Haruka mentioned it on her blog but I soon found that I was a little too late for that (I should've read it on the official site haha). Though the Zipper magazine does seem to fall into the step before Gothic Lolita where some of the clothes featured are very hideously cute on anyone. Maybe when they get older they'll be modelling for magazines worth buying :D

Just a note that Halcali was mentioned on Boing Boing, related to Nagi Noda's Hanpanda project. There was a link to Baby Blue! on YouTube. (The Halcali ref is at the very bottom.) http://www.boingboing.net/2006/03/31/mutant_panda_hybrid_.html
