The word fabulous does not do it justice.

Imagine a world of glitter and feathers, gilt and mirrors. Monkey fur and capes, bling beyond your wildest of dreams. Put a little piano music behind it all, drop it into a strip mall in Las Vegas, and you have the Liberace Museum.

Ta da!!!

Purpletwinkie and Mr. J. were our escorts, and we had 45 minutes to take it all in. It was very, very hard to focus. So many shiny reflective surfaces.

So many costumes.

So many pianos to play.
keyboards everywhere. i must play this one!i can play the wall piano!
So many lines that were just meant to be read out loud.
Why don't I?
It was a magical and mystical visit. Even a rainbow filled the sky as we left.
and the clouds parted and the rainbow came out
What a heavenly visit. Thanks, Purpletwinkie and Mr. J. You guys are the best.

Monkey fur!!!??? That's the one thing that doesn't sound fabulous. (Kinda skanky, no?)

These photos are great. You know I love sparkley shiny things. If I ever go to Vegas, the Liberace Museum will be at the top of my list of things to see. How great!

Oh the feathers, the monkey fur, the rhinestones, the beading... oh, and the shuttle bus driver shouting, "Last bus leaving in 10 minutes. Last call! Last bus of the day!"

Good times.

Mr.J said...

Cathy said...

Yikes! Sensory overload. But it looks like fun.
