Last weekend was a three day weekend, so, of course we went to visit our friend in South Carolina. Last time I went to visit in July we had a classic movie night. That time the movie was Rosemary's Baby, this time it was Desperately Seeking  Susan. Guess we've been in a New York state of mind. We also binge watched an amazing Netfilx show called Sense8, which you should check out.

Of course, we thrifted. Which will be another post. This post will be about the visit to the Mint Museum Uptown. We saw a special exhibit called Body Embellishment. I thought you'd enjoy seeing some of what was there......... 

Keith Herring inspired nail art. I could not function with nails that long.

Nor could I wear this piece, but wouldn't that look awesome with a Renn Faire costume?

This ring was made from knitted nylon.

You'll never guess that this neckpiece started out as.*

4,000 knitted nylon balls.

Terry cloth tongues with beaded spit

The full name is Craft and Design Museum. Here are a couple of pieces I really liked.

Yarn wrapped animals

I love how the light shines through and makes the shadows.

What's a design museum with out some clothes? From the old fashion to the hyper modern

Beautiful House of Worth cape.

1920's flapper dress

Hyper modern dress made with a 3D printer. It was difficult to photograph the dresses. This is the only one that was worth keeping. It is made out of plastic and doesn't look very easy to wear.

*Give up on what the neckpiece is made of? German yogurt containers.

Seeing as last work week was only 4 days, I had to work extra fast. I made 3 coats in one afternoon. Well, I made them to the point they could be fitted. Now on to finishing all the fitted costumes and see what new stuff I'll get to make. Of course, photos will happen.
