The Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit (MOCAD) has a great free Family Day every month, and yesterday the theme was ROBOTS and SPACE INVADERS! The museum had a bunch of incredible materials and art supplies set out for kids to build their own robot and space alien costumes. Some of the costumes were really incredible (my architect neighbor was there building his son a very impressive getup). We brought our old Halloween costume for a head start and used some of the materials to give it an update (reboot?). My favorite new element was the transparent red eye thing she glued on, hers was the robot kitty tail. The exhibit provided some really cool Star Wars-style backdrops for pictures, too.
