From a 2009 post on WeirdAsianNews: “Shokotan is the nickname of Shiyoko Nakagawa, a multi-talented entertainer with her own bizarre flair for coiffure and style. Although no one dares to dispute the idea of ‘to each his own,’ this girl’s penchant for wearing dead cicadas in her hair or even wearing them sometimes as a hat, does leave something to be at least questioned if not desired.” Of course that was four years ago, and four years in Japanese trend cycles is FOREVER, so who knows? She’s probably weaving goat entrails into her hair or coating it with snail slime these days. If anyone knows what her new look is and what she’s up to, please send a link.
