    Your haori is fabulous, and I love the ingenious way you've come up with to wear your outer space pins and charms!

    Really wonderful--you've made your passion for space exploration into a statement bracelet! (But what do you do with any additional pins you find? Is the bracelet still "growing"?:hysterical:)

    Hello Linda,
    I remember i have read the book "forties fashion" that there is a chapter introducing Japanese clothing with all kinds of military element, you know, plane, the well-equipped soldiers.... I think it's so funny when i saw it, the pattern is such a indicator of that era, like wartime. Your HAORI with satellite pattern is amazing owing to your specialized hobby, so cool. BTW, I post two pictures of the haori I just mentioned in that book, cute too. IMG_20140519_160702.jpg

    Your Haori is amazing - and what a great idea about your use of the old Russian space badges! They remind me of USSR stamps - I used to collect stamps and for a while I swapped stamps with a guy in Russia. I've since sold off most of my collection, keeping just one album with the most special and unusual stamps (and unusual/not anymore existing countries). I have tons of space stamps from the USSR, it seems they printed a series for every mission they sent up there. I probably have a few stamps that refer to the missions your badges refer to :). I might just have to dig this thing up again - last time I did I realised that some of the Czech stamps I had were actually designed by Alphonse Mucha - after looking at them for years and never realising!

    And for Laura - the stamps designed by Mucha, and a modern one commemorating another one of his stamp designs: stamps3.jpg

    Thank you for showing the stamps Karin. I used to collect stamps and I'm a Mucha fan, so the combination is wonderful for me to see! :)

    Every time I read the title of this thread 'Sputnik Haori' I can't help but think of some New Wave EMO band from the 80s...
