It’s not very often that you find clothing made for kids that make you say, “Shit: I want that for me. Does that come in adult sizes??” That doesn’t happen outside of Crew Cuts catalogues (at least, that’s how I feel when I look at that). Nico Nico is a local effort to get cool LA kids looking even cooler through locally sourced, environmentally conscious clothing. They’re also super cute and super hip. Again: we wish we could wear these clothes!
Skirball is having a fun family puppet festival on April 13. It involves Bob Baker Marionettes and tons of other programming: it’s a day of puppetry!! This should—and will be—very fun.
February 22 is World Sword Swallower’s Day. Did you know that? To celebrate, Hollywood’s Ripley’s Believe It Or Not is having free sword swallowing performances. Some wild things will be happening with a special show at 1:30PM!
We got an email not too long ago from local photographer Kat Kaye. She’s an Art Center alum whose focus and work is in fashion photography. She has an obvious fascination and connection to people and does an excellent job of making them look good, likely the number one goal in her line of work. One body of work that steps away from her otherwise glossy and meticulously planned editorial style is a documentary series called Afshin. It’s a personal pursuit that follows a very unique, very special person in her life.
Hey, new parents: look at this. There’s a new local effort called Itsy Bitsy Crow that makes some items for babies specifically bandanas that double for bibs. What a great idea!
