Interesting Bits 7/28/11
July 28, 2011
Just a couple interesting things I’ve seen around the interwebs today:
- Fashioning Apollo – the designing and sewing of the spacesuits worn by the likes of Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin. This sight appears to just be an over view and sneak peek of the more detailed book… I wonder if my library has it yet… I found this through the tumblr blog Of Another Fashion which is really cool onto itself because it’s just a collection of old photographs of people of color that aren’t usually seen as much. I love seeing the Asian women from the 60s the most.
- Project Project Runway – For the premier of season 9 of Project Runway tonight, Kat of Just Crafty Enough has created a crafting challenge to create outfits for fashion dolls (Barbie, Bratz or any doll you like it seems) every week following along with the challenges on the TV show. She did this last year and made a flickr group for it too. I don’t have time to follow along with the challenge but I think it’s a really cool idea and much easier than trying to sew an outfit for yourself every week that follow the challenges (and some of them can be kind of crazy challenges anyways). I like watching Project Runway because I think it’s fun and interesting to watch people go though the creative process but I really hate the drama and I think the personalities on the show have gotten more and more fake as time goes on.
