Time To Wear Your Favorite Food!
As you all may know, I LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT JAPAN. I love their energetic embrace of all aspects of life, pop culture and fashion – and I love that they love plastic food:
When my wife Alex and I were in Tokyo, we stopped by one of the more famous “plastic food” stores, where you can shop for all sorts of great plastic food!
Well, guess what? There’s now a new trend where girls are taking that food and turning it into fashion headwear – like this:
Behold The “Bacon Bow!”

BEHOLD THE BACON BOW!
It’s a plasticized piece of bacon turned into a hairpiece!
Yes, enterprising young women in Japan are taking this plastic food and turning it into fashionable head gear!
It has become an ongoing fashion trend, resulting in such unique items as curry with rice designed as a necklace!
You all know that I personally LOVE plastic food:
