Wired Magazine had the best blurb about a trend hitting Japan right now in their Japanese Schoolgirl Watch (slightly unsettling column headline)... clad in school uniform by day but Manga-inspired vixen by night... where they hell do the girls get into their elaborate clothes and makeup? Before, apparently in the loos. But a new company called Cos-Pa has launched something similar to the WC1 Powder Room in Tokyo's Shibuya district so they can have 30 minutes to change and do their maquillage, complete with wifi and a non-alcoholic bevvy to boot for less than a fiver. Not bad.
