So today we went to Harajuku, the youth fashion area of the metropolis and roughly analogous to the East Village of some years back. The most striking examples of fashion are, of course, the Gothic Lolita's, shown above. The thing I can't show you yet (.....dail-upppppppp......) are photo's snapped on the sly in a shop selling clothing that seems like some fevered cross breeding between rave gear and spangly carnivalé fashion. It's all rhinestones and feathers and plastic and glowsticks. It is the most insane clothing I have EVER seen. I believe my eyes where actually spinning in their sockets.
Oh yeah, and we actually ran into somebody (on a side street off the main thoroughfare) I used to know back in NYC. Weird.
