I also threw all the gallery staff into an uproar by losing Glamchops the plastic dinosaur earring somewhere in Bowie's Sound + Visionscape. Despite their best efforts (and all the staff were really lovely and helpful about it) it was nowhere to be found, and perhaps exited exhibition clutched in the hand of a small child, as Glamchops is a modified children's toy. This is a tragedy indeed -- Glamchops was brought back from New York by (equally) dinosaur and toy obsessed friend Jason Z, where he found it in a shop where (or so he said) I would have wanted to buy everything. He was a little bright orange plastic dinosaur wearing a diamanté choker, with an earring hook plunged into his skull. That said, I've always meant to make a few more of him, and maybe this is the time to do so!
We arrived early, so took in the 80s fashion show where timscience was admirably tolerant of me saying, "I used to have that on my wall! I owned that copy of Blitz!" It contains a particular cabinet I feel would be of interest to motodraconis. Diamanté lobster fascinator! Also original costumes from Adam Ant, Leigh Bowery, Toyah and dozens of other 80s style icons. It's not pulling the crowds like Bowie, but oh there are some fine costumes to behold.
