Title: Better quality of this pic of hide?
Post by: seys on November 22, 2020, 02:33:25 PM
Hey!
Might anyone have this picture of hide but in better quality? I've tried to search for it but this is the best I could find.

I tried a reverse image search but they're all grainy.  :( Maybe somebody should re-scan the picture from the original source

Yeah I tried that as well... Might you know where the picture is from? I think I'll try to buy one if it's a book/magazine since I love this photoshoot in general heh

I'm 95% sure it's from 1993! Might be worth looking 92 and 94 as well though.

That photo is from the book "X JAPAN SPECIAL ISSUE ART OF LIFE"!  ;) I believe that book was produced by Fool's Mate between 1993-1995.

I've found one on Ebay: https://www.ebay.com/itm/X-JAPAN-SPECIAL-ISSUE-ART-OF-LIFE-Interview-Photo-Book-YOSHIKI-HIDE-FC-Limited-/283800310219 (https://www.ebay.com/itm/X-JAPAN-SPECIAL-ISSUE-ART-OF-LIFE-Interview-Photo-Book-YOSHIKI-HIDE-FC-Limited-/283800310219)

An edited version of that specific photo was released in the "1994 TOKYO DOME 2 DAYS" pamphlet. It's exactly the same photo except it has a nude woman body (painted black) printed on hide's guitar.

AAAAA THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!
I don't think I'll buy that ebay listing though, a bit too pricey for me  ;D I'll search around mercari to see if I can find one!

EDIT: Yup, there are two listings for ~1000yen ;D

You're welcome  ;)

How does Mercari work?
I've wanted to purchase items from there for years but I have no idea how it works.  :-\ Do you pay with Paypal? Do you have to live in Japan to purchase Mercari items?

I use buyee.jp! It's basically a third-party website that hosts mercari, yahoo auctions, rakuten etc. and makes it very easy to ship from Japan to wherever you live. It's hard to explain briefly so here's a "guide" on how to use it.

It looks kinda complicated but trust me, it isn't ;D
And yes, PayPal and credit/debit card works.
