Dress knitting project: 7th update
I’ve just attached the sleeves! I have counted the stitches four times and gotten a different number each time. I am taking a break now and crossing my fingers that it will add up to 312 the next time I count…
Museum of Fantastic Specimens
This online collection of creatures is “curated” by Hajime Emoto. The three-story virtual museum consists of nine rooms filled with water and land dwelling monsters, demons, and dragons from all over the globe. Some of the monsters look so incredibly real, it’s hard to believe that they are sculpted from paper, modeling paste and bamboo. Since the virtual museum is written entirely in Japanese, the links below can help guide you through a tour:
- 1st Floor: Room 1, Room 2, Room 3
- 2nd Floor: Room 4, Room 5, Room 6, Room 7
- 3rd Floor: Room 8, Room 9
- Basement: Shop, Cafeteria
Each specimen has a clickable thumbnail that links to additional photos and background information (in Japanese). The basement contains a bookshop and a cafeteria that serves dishes prepared with some of the creatures featured in the museum.
