This photo is of some girls I came across in the Itaewon Subway Station in Seoul. All I remember about this day is that it was the month of July, and anyone who's lived there knows it's hot as hell and humid as a poorly vented laundrymat. Needless to say, this is not what you want to be wearing in July. I later showed this photo to a student of mine and she said they were more than likely in route to a Japanese animation costume party. Not until today, when I was cleaning the dust off this image, did I notice the Japanese comic book sitting between them. My student was probably right.
