I returned to the Minnesota State Fair once again only this time with four others! This meant that I actually walked through the Midway, which isn't my thing, being a bad sport and everything. I felt bad for all the people winning these odd banana toys.
And then, 'Et tu, Domo-Kun?!?!'
Thankfully Japanophiles could enjoy this gorgeous birdhouse in the Creative Arts Building, my favorite part of the fair where I take pictures of everything I hope to pirate!
Except this, of course. It's amazing! Tinker-toys and a lot of patience to match the creativity.
I was very excited to notice this adorable Dalek from (I believe) Glass Endeavors.
And you KNOW who wears this scarf!
In the Fine Arts Building I saw this painting and immediately thought of SIL Monica, a big Hayao Miyazaki fan.
And the whole world can relate to this sculpture. May it unite us in peace!
I know what you really want to see, that's right, the seed art!
This one is very Minnesotan:
I'm always impressed by the Left Wing bent of seed art here. I just assumed it would be the opposite.
QR codes made their debut this year. I've been cross-stitching them, so I suppose it makes sense.
And look, the royal wedding! Awwww... I didn't watch it but the corgis were a clue.
This one has me scratching my head:
Today following a Twins game and a long nap I got online and read in The Advocate "Glitter Bombs Away at Minnesota (Un)Fair" and the following video clip.
I'm still surprised I hadn't heard of this BEFORE the fair, and it happened the day I was there! Good on you, glitter bombers, and boo on you, fair runners. I hope the story makes the rounds and points out how foolish it was to offer a booth to people who hate.
