DESIRE ~ that hair wig ~

actually, Akina started wearing the wig she used during Desire’s promotional period back in Concert 1985 "Bitter & Sweet"…this pic is taken from the visual book "VINGTANS", which captured some photos of the 1985 concert…which are not released on video/DVD…the songlist in the released version was heavily cut…missing a lot of regular single numbers out…anyway, just as I found this picture…another discovery came about ….doesn’t that dress look a little familar??! AGAIN!!


The answer to that dress….GYPSY QUEEN in 1986!! …1st appearance on BEST TEN (  ザベストテン ). That was the only time Akina used that dress for Gypsy Queen…I guess she realised that it doesn’t suit the song and she got nicer clothes to wear!!


Sometimes, one may wonder why we keep talking about Recyclemania here…I guess it takes a true, blue and "poisoned" Akina fan to be able to recognise all these repeated fashion… Whatever we say here…it just goes to show how much we adore this 歌姫…dun we?


Akina fanboy since 14. Still undecided which are his top ten favourite Akina tracks as it's mission impossible. Digs "Everlasting Love" a whole lot more than the average Akina fan.

  1. Yes, she looked a little oba-san in that dress when she wore it at the Best 10.

    I think it is very tough to have to keep on buying new clothes for new performances when you are as popular as Akina at that time and being invited to so many programs to perform. As long as she doesn’t recycle any of her “禁区” dresses or the “貘皮”, I don’t really care.

    I guess she only had to look up to Momoe, who is a worse culprit. She wore her Kohaku “Imitation Gold” “Ah-Soh” dress to so many other functions!

  2. Oh… that wig for Bitter & Sweet concert…. But the dresses are similar design but different colours…. Bad design regardless
