More Seattle

Last time I shared photos of the Star Trek exhibit at the EMP museum in Seattle. This time, I thought I’d wrap up that trip with some of the more bizarre outfits from the wearable art collection.

Like I said last time, EMP is worth a visit.

It’s raining here. My frizzy hair and I hope you’re safe and dry wherever you are.

Seattle Roadtrip

What do you mean there’s no internet?

Yeah, I didn’t line that up very well, did I?

I’ve been on the road quite a bit this summer. Nothing exciting. Just things that needed to be taken care of. Two weeks ago I was in Seattle getting my youngest settled into a new place and I caught the Star Trek exhibit at the EMP Museum. Okay. That was exciting. And yeah, the last one leaving the nest is pretty thrilling. Not a week at the beach thrilling but yay, thrilling. So, scratch that. This summer has been awesome!

Thanks to a lack of internet at wee one’s new apartment, and another quick trip last week, I’m finally catching up here.

EMP has a lot to offer. Most likely. I skimmed it all looking for the Star Trek exhibit. Costumes, sets, props, miniatures, a borg chamber and a transporter set where you can act out a scene, complete with special effects, while a friend or kindly stranger records it from a monitor with their phone. There was a line and I was alone so I skipped that part.

Kick-Ass women of Voyager. Well, their clothes anyway.

Forget the transporter, I wanted to play on this set

I did manage to find someone to snap a few photos of me in the borg chamber. How does somebody take out of focus photos on an iPhone?

The detail was amazing

Resistance is…wait…batteries low…hold that thought

Hey how did he get in there? Exterma-what? Hang on, let me get a little closer 

On a cold rainy night like tonight, all I want to do is bury myself under a zillion blankets and pop in some of the original series. Since I still have some edits for How to Sex Your Snake, that will have to wait.

Go boldly and write on,

Melissa
