Bewitched, bothered & bejeweled
Here I am with TCD’s intern photographer, standing inside the Milwaukee Public Museum (800 W. Wells St.) Gift Shop; not the one downstairs, but the one at the end of the winding road known as Cleopatra: The Search for the Last Queen of Egypt. It’s a big shop with stuff, some of it is actually stuffed, as in a barrel of little fluffy cats, tagged “Cleo Cat-Tra.” Does it get any sillier?
Yes, it does.
Here’s intern Jenney in a get-up fit for a Queen. And me wearing an Indiana-Jones style topper.
Word has arrived from the tombs that kids will “rule” during Cleo sleepovers on January 27 and March 23. With the help of a flashlight, seekers of excitement can bed down in select exhibit areas. Think of it as a campy campout, with a few things that go bump in the night. No bears or raccoons allowed.
