Yet another example of the lady-centric MetaFilter! Whatever happened to the BoyZone in here? (j/k)

Thanks for the link, plep. You can see echoes of many of these trends in today's Japanese fashions. I didn't realize things were so deep set. Girls today still gather at this spot for modelling work, albeit dressed a bit differently.

Wow, thanks, plep; you continue to post fantastic links. The Hanatsubaki covers are great.

[So, is it just me or has MeFi once again become amazing? I've seen a ton of truly rich sites here in the past few weeks.]

The fun doesn't end there... The Grey Art Gallery has an impressive assortment of archives open for perusal.

Stunning exhibit plep - thanks!
My favorite gallery is this one which recalls much of the art found in y2karl's terrific ukiyo-e post and hama7's red-headed barbarians post.
