No More Naked Laptops! No More Naked Laptops! Expose Your Otaku Soul With Stickers 26

In foreign countries, street art like graffiti are part of urban culture, but in Japan, there are original art forms born out of otaku culture like “itasha” (cars decorated with anime or game characters) or “ita-nail” (nail art with anime or game characters). Today we will focus on people who express themselves by customizing their laptops in the same way.

Arrangements
**[Model] Ako Nagai @ako0327**

Ako may have the looks of an anime character and nice body but, she loves anime and games! On her PC there are stickers of her favorite anime characters and stickers from her favorite illustrators Ai☆Madonna and Manamoko. She is still in the process of decorating her Mac; she’s still looking for Goodra, which is her most favorite Pokemon.

[Idol] Aoi Yagawa @aoiygw


Aoi is a member of the group Maison book girl as well as a former finalist of the Miss iD idol audition who loves lovely characters. She decorates not on the top of PC but on the frame of screen with stickers of foreign animation characters and “Yurie Sekiya.” Her lovely and fancy world view makes her PC so cute!

[Musician] Kenta Sakurai @sakuraikenta


Kenta Sakurai is the ex-producer of Izukoneko, the current producer of Maison book girl, and a big fan of Jun Aonami! The PC shows his love for Jun. He has many opportunities to bring it with him for work and has many experiences talking about the PC!

[Idol Otaku] Gulliver @gulliverdj


He is well-known Hello Project otaku, Momoiro Clover Z otaku and so on, and the lid of his laptop is covered with stickers from idol concerts. Ferrys’ sticker has big impact!

[Graphic designer] Syunsuke Sugiyama @sskhybrid


He works in various fields including graphic and web design as well as creating the artwork for artists like tofubeats and Dempagumi.inc. He also acts as a VIDEO BOY and VJ. And on the lid of his laptop, there are so many different stickers that make you wonder where did he get them all. Although there are many stickers, “サブ垢やめろ” (Stop your secret account) caught our attention!lol

[DJ (Stranger)] Hiyoko Nishimura @hiyokochang


His DJ technique which utilizes a ramen noodle strainer is the only one like it in Japan. His playful performance brings smiles to DJs, VJs, management and staff members. He appeared in big events like SUMMER SONIC OSAKA, or Hibiki Ongaku sai, and BONENKAI 2012 hosted by m-flo. His laptop has interesting decoration. There are cute stickers on the it but, but the stickersare covered with masking tape! What an artistic PC it is!

More interesting laptops These range from very simple to very individualistic. There’s so much individual expression!

Cardcaptor Sakura’s sticker has huge impact!



Complex of Street culture and Anime!


Band stickers can be fashionable like this!

Extreme simple!

Next :The author attempts to decorate her own laptop!

I tried decorating my PC! Recently, I finally bought an MacBook Air and put some sticker art on it! I saw a lot of sticker decoration so I felt brave enough to put stickers on a brand new PC! Here we go!
These are the stickers which I collected. The stickers by illustrator tobird and my friend (also an illustrator) Fusedy are my favorite!


Trying to put it on carefully… I’m actually super nervous!

Finally! Completed! The theme of my laptop is “the mystery of human body!” I put the sticker of heart over the apple mark so that it looks like it is moving! I wanted to decorate more, but to give it my own sense of style, I kept it simple.

The reason why I became interested in sticker art is that I hoped to sell stickers that I designed since I work with idol goods. There are many unique stickers made by young creators or the logo of brands sold at idol concerts. But it doesn’t mean that you can’t show off your favorite stickers! Putting them on your laptop makes it easy to display them wherever you go! I’d like to use my customized laptop at a café in the morning and behave as if I am a fashionable person! Why don’t you put your favorite stickers on your laptop and arrange it with your own style?
