I have made tons of pictures at the Bunka Gakuen museum yesterday (even if it was forbidden). I will try to post them as soon as I come back (given that my home internet connection is really bad this days). Happy ?
Some eyes candy to make you wait...

I will answer to Kendra here, because, I'm sure it will interest others : she asked me if I was going to the Kyoto Costume Institute. First and unfortunately, you can't go to the KCI. The KCI is a costume collection not a museum. The only chance you have to see items from the collection is when they happen to do an exhibition, hosted in a friendly museum. And unfortunately for me, the "Luxury" exhibit they made recently is over. But I will certainly buy the catalog. And I will tell you if it's interesting.

On the other hand, not everything is lost. There is another GREAT costume museum in Japan. The Bunka Gakuen. Remember ? The one with the crappy website (works with Chrome tonight, you might give it a try) and the wonderful costumes.

Well they have a permanent exhibit that shall be cool, but they also have a special exhibit : 200 years of European Fashion !! I don't think I will have the right to take pictures, but I hope there will be a catalog. And you will hear from that too :)))))))

And proving I'm not lying about the site : there are pictures !!! Strangely, it work under Safari, but also under Firefox, and I still can't make the whole site work under firefox.

EDIT : try again firefox : some pages just refuse to work (the first one, for instance), and others work fine when you hit refresh.

EDIT : apparently, there is a slight problem with the pictures of the site to day : they're not working with Firefox (and probably with IE). But if you are on a Mac, I checked with Safari, and it worked. Sorry...


I found a new costume museum with some many many pictures of their costumes, but as it is japanese, and so difficult to browse in, I made myself a list : appart from fans and bags, it should (I say it "should") be exhaustive. I even begin translating the interesting bit about place and dates, but it was long and boring and I stopped ;)

Beware, it's a huge listing.
