I spotted this hilariously huge model of a set of teeth and gums as part of the Healthyville Children’s Wellness exhibit, in the basement of the Museum of Chinese in America, which is on Lafayette Street, a few blocks North of Canal Street, in Chinatown.
I woke up Sunday morning to find a FaceBook message from my friend Michael containing an image in which he had Photoshopped my face onto the head of Barbie with flowing Pink Hair. As you can see, it is pretty sweet. I immediately posted it on Instagram (@gailpink61), where it has currently accrued more Likes than any other image I’ve yet posted.
Here is the original image. The resemblance is, of course, uncanny. Especially the slender, giraffe-like neck!
He also made one where he gave me awesome bangs.
On the day of the #NotMyPresdent’s Day March, I got separated from the people I had come with and, due to crowd-control efforts, I ended up having to take a detour all the way over to Broadway in order to come back around and find my friends waiting for me on Central Park West. And it was there on Broadway, somewhere between 65th and 68th Streets, that I passed by this store window display for Mr. Bubble, which also featured many Hot Pink Rubber Ducks. Awesome.
What’s most interesting about this Hot Pink bust of a lovely African American lady, is that it’s not in use as your standard display mannequin, despite the fact that it is clearly in the middle of a clothing section of a department store. In this instance, it is really more like a sculpture; more like a work of art meant to enhance the consumer’s shopping experience, I think. In my case, it was highly effective.
