I also saw the single coolest piece of NW Coast Native art ever:
|Really highlights the terrifying "I have eight legs and a beak" quality of the octopus|
But the big reason I was there was to take in a fashion exhibition at the Museum of Vancouver.
|You bitches are just jealous because I have real hair|
The mannequins were really interesting because they didn't all match. They were clearly cobbled together from a few different sources and the curators had to do a lot of work trying to put the right dress with the right form.
|"Don't lose your heads over it! Ha Ha!" [elbow jab]|
Mostly, it worked. I can't remember any being particularly creepy or strange.
Oh wait, now I remember. Aunt Mavis there on the right seemed like she had wandered into the wrong show.
They also had some really cool accessories, particularly this purse shaped like a VW bug.
|Pay no attention to the decapitated green bear in the foreground|
I left brimming with ideas and dreaming of the day when I would get to put on my own fashion exhibition. And wondering if I would ever be fabulous enough to pull off a hoodie dress.
