Now a guy no longer has to waste hours in front of the mirror, practicing lying to the cashier at Tokyu Hands that he’s buying that sparkly pink Power Ranger dress for his girlfriend!
This product is clearly labeled BOY RANGER (with the helpful subtitle “BOYS” beneath, written in phonetic katakana for the kanji-challenged customer). And the photo right on the front of this career-inhibiting garment clearly shows that these leg-baring minidresses are designed for MANLY MEN. Check out the gym-worthy calves! The obviously acrylic wigs! The five o’clock shadow!
And for the fearless gentleman whose career has already been stunted by gone-viral pictures of himself in un-corner-office-worthy clothing, an advanced version of this costume is now available: the Idol Ranger!
Read a novel set in Tokyo…
Writing mystery books set in Tokyo is mostly what I do, but I also blog about the odd stuff I see every day in Japan. I'm a graduate of Stanford University and the Sendagaya Japanese Institute in Tokyo, and a member of the International Thriller Writers, the Mystery Writers of America, and Sisters In Crime. When I'm not in Tokyo, I live in San Francisco. I also host a travel site called The Tokyo Guide I Wish I'd Had, so if you're headed to Japan and want to check out the places I take my friends when they're in town, take a look!
