Stardom Santa 2018 Photobook Details:

Official Title: Stardom Santa 2018 Photobook
Release: December 24th, 2018
Size: B5
Cost: ¥2,000
Where to Buy: Third Party Venders (eBay, Buyee, Toudoukan, etc.)

This photobook was obviously made with the Christmas season in mind, and was released in time for Stardom’s Korakuen Hall event on December 24th, 2018. This is one of Stardom’s most unique photobooks as it only contains Stardom’s roster wearing Santa outfits. Some wear what may be considered “sexy” Santa outfits, but still Santa nonetheless. The following wrestlers are included:

  • Momo Watanabe
  • Utami Hayashishita
  • AZM
  • Konami
  • Jungle Kyona
  • Kagetsu
  • Hazuki
  • Arisa Hoshiki
  • Mayu Iwatani
  • Tam Nakano

The most surprising inclusion is Kagetsu, as either due to her own personal preferences or to stay in character, she did not always appear in Stardom’s more “free spirited” photobooks. Each wrestler had at least two pictures (most had more) in various poses, all of course following the theme. Its an interesting book with perhaps limited appeal due to the really narrow scope, but its a unique presentation that I think most fans would enjoy, even if it was just to flip through once for a chuckle. Here is a sample of pictures from the photobook:
