Curio Obscura

Curio Obscura
something for everyoneMy friend Hunter finds the neatest places to visit. I’ve told you how we wandered Route 8. The other day he took me to Curio Obscura, a wonderful store full of the most curious objects by Pandora Wrigglesworth. As Pandora says on her website: At Curio Obscura, you will find Steampunk, Gothic Lolita, Clockwork, Dollism, Humor, Fashion, Historical Recreation/Reinterpretation, Animation, Magique, Vehicles, and whatever else pops into my twisted imagination.

I know I can fitThe store itself is worth a visit, even if the inventory weren’t so wonderful. It reminded me of the stories of Babba Yagga, except that house was on chicken legs. This store is on, um, well, it appears to be on metallic limbs and crustacean legs. *grin* I didn’t notice the house spinning about while we were in it, but who knows? Wouldn’t surprise me in the least had we been twirling.

a bit hard on the kneesI was certainly spinning and twirling INSIDE, trying to read all the different posters: Flying topters, clockwork inside, copper stockings, clockwork mustache, flying saucer skirt, Fun Fur Jacket, the horseless gown and more. Hunter indulged himself and now has a clockwork mustache. I have the flying topter, courtesy of Hunter. Thank you SO much for the generous gift! *grin* Unfortunately, the picture of me flying in my topter hat will have to wait – technical difficulties with laptops and connections and all sorts of annoying hardware-type issues.

almost thereWhat I can show you are all the toys with which I payed while I was there. There was a demo area where I got to try the broomcycle, the flying saucer skirt, the horseless gown and the oui coupe. I was laughing so hard that my pictures are worse than usual and so is my documentation. I didn’t write down all the proper descriptions. But I think the pictures I do have tell a sufficient story and convey some of the humor and fun of Curio Obscura.

Ahuva's car and hairGood thing I have Hunter to scout out these places for me!! *grin* Not only do I have fun, get wonderful toys, but I get blog material too. *Hugs*
