With fashion and particularly appearance being very important in Japan, it’s perhaps not surprising that the nation’s scarecrows are similarly style conscious. So, for 2011, there are some new characters as well as clothes.
Along with a fresh coiffure.
And even a little coyness.
But, for those that crave continuity, there’s still the unequivocal evil of one of last year’s creations.
All have different facial expressions.
The scarecrows are getting more creative especially the hairstyles.
But the 2nd picture remind me of a Japanese horror Movie (kakashi aka Scarecrow) which aired 10 year ago.
The scarecrow in the 2nd picture is the one that struck me the most. It’s almost like you can feel the eyes looking at you from behind the hair…
They just keep getting better – and scarier. Some of these already haunt my dreams, I’m sure.
They certainly do! I’ve thought about going in the early evening, but considering how many bugs there were at midday, they’d be far more scary than the mannequins…
haha, scarecrows Harajuku-style
That’s very true, the second one in particular would blend in perfectly!

Very interesting scarecrows and very fashionable at the same time 🙂
Those would definitely keep me off the fields, seriously creepy 😛

The second one would scare anybody, but the birds 🙂
Never knew scarecrows can be that fashionable and creepy even for me.
