If you’re familiar with Gal then it’s almost impossible to ignore the phenomenon that is デコーデン, more commonly known as just ‘Deco’. Of course Deco is not only limited to Gal. In fact the majority of Japan’s female population (and even a few male’s ;D) love it.
My strangest encounter with Deco was on the Ginza line, in Tokyo. As we stopped at a station, an older woman, who I guessed was in her late fifties boarded the tube with a fully decorated cellphone proudly hanging around her neck. Of course there’s no reason for her not to have one, but it just goes to show how popular Deco has become.
Deco goes so much further than just cellphone’s and camera’s. A great example can be seen on Mitsu’s blog, ‘Universal Doll’. From make-up brushes to…a bike!! The girl certainly has talent, and a whole lot of patience lol
I have Deco’d in the past, always using simple techniques with plain coloured crystals. But now, I have a new cellphone and I am hoping for a little advice from you guys. THIS is my new phone (albeit temporary, until I move to Japan this Summer). It is only slightly bigger than the palm of my hand and I love the sleek black exterior, but I feel like it could do with something more.
So I’m asking for advice, or idea’s.
Let me know what YOU think…
