The Bombshells of Cincinnati made their mark again on an almost mile strip of grassy median on Central Parkway this week. Per Channel 9 News: "They're putting their own blend of non permanent and non destructive fiber creations on some of Cincinnati’s statues and other fixtures around town. Yarn bombing is a type of graffiti or street art that employs colorful displays of knitted or crocheted cloth rather than paint or chalk. The group says they “aim to soften the edges of an otherwise cruel, harsh environment.” The Bombshell’s are a group of ladies, and a few lucky gentlemen. For more information on The Bombshell’s Yarn check out their blog. "
"Ooooh girl...look at this one!"
"Awww...that's tooo cute!"
"Whoa...what is that? How cool!"
"OMG...I HAVE to make that."
You get the idea.
I'm inspired by the Bombshells' and all the volunteers / partners hard work and obvious dedication to beautifying our neighborhood. And of course drawing attention to the Arts in that area. (and in general) Especially ArtWorks. WELL DONE TO ALL!!!
Oh - and for you dudes out there that say, "All this is just a little too girly for me." I'm here to inform...you certainly don't need lady bits to enjoy fiber arts! Here's the proof:
Could easily pass as the Imperial Navy's Twin Ion Engine Fighter.
Pictures of Hot Girls!
Dirty joke possibilities waiting patiently JUST for you.
There was even a Super Hero on the top of a building.
I'm not real sure if it was related to the Yarn Bombing,
but random buff guys in capes are cool nonetheless!
