V&A Costumes

Carrying on our visit to the V&A in London from Thursday, we are now in the Performance and Theatre section, where there are over 3,500 exhibits, including Kylie Minogue's dressing room, an enormous rhinoceros with movable tail and a couple of Dame Edna Everage's outrageous outfits.

Really good to see the costumes for the Lion King up close and appreciate the sewing.

There is a dressing up corner to investigate - here's a spidery cape
You have to remember to enjoy the interior of the building as you wander round, there are so many hidden corners to see.

A spectacular place for the indoor cafe
We're back in the cafe again.

Time for another cuppa!

Thanks for dropping in.

Have a good weekend.
