Meet Lisa 13, a pink-haired Harajuku model and rock guitarist pursuing her lifelong musical dreams.
When we first met Lisa13 a few years ago, she was a Japanese high school student toting her guitar around the streets of Harajuku on her way to band practice. Lisa's pink-blue hair and rock-meets-goth style led to her being regularly featured in Kera Magazine and on various Japanese street fashion websites. Lisa graduated from high school last year, and has spent the time since working toward her dream of putting together an all-girl Japanese hard rock/metalcore band.
Encouraged by her parents - and inspired by musicians like X-Japan/Hide, Tomoyasu Hotei, Korn, Marilyn Manson, and Motionless in White - Lisa started her current band Moth in Lilac in 2013.
Lisa was born without a right hand, so her father created a DIY prosthetic guitar pick that allow her to play just like everyone else. She told us that she doesn't consider it an issue or obstacle because it's always been part of her life.
In this short documentary, we speak to Lisa about her music and fashion inspirations, her early experiences in Harajuku, and her dreams for the future. We hope you enjoy watching it as much as we enjoyed making it.
Lisa13 can speak pretty good English, so please feel free to leave questions/comments for her in the YouTube comments or contact her directly on social media:
