There is an old saying in the western world, “You are what you wear”, and American clinical psychologist Dr. Jennifer Baumgartner once finished a pioneering treatise based on the costume psychology. Under earth-shaking changes of the age, the lifestyles of human beings have also undergone drastic changes; therefore, clothing has not just meets the function of warming and sheltering, which remains more symbolic meanings at the level of sociology. Certain dressing and clothing styles can represent the social class and lifestyles of certain social groups. Japanese movie Shakes and Earrings adapted from “Cleft Tongue” of Hitomi Kanehara, which won the Akutagawa Prize (one of the most prestigious literary awards in Japan). It tells a story that three young Japanese marginal youth figures try to realize self-salvation by body modification, but lost in a disorder of relationship and sensory stimuli. This thesis, from the perspective of the costume psychology, tends to study the inner actives and daily lifestyles of Punks under the young subculture, and also its deep connotation in the light of sociology science.
