Mori and Steam


February 21, 2016 11:00am-05:00pm


Honolulu Museum of Art

Event Information:

Explore the Harajuku: Tokyo Street Fashion exhibition and be inspired to create some of your own fashion accessories.


• Make steampunk goggles: No steampunk outfit is complete without goggles, right? Kids will have a chance to create their own goggles and wear them around the museum for the day. Different colored lenses will give kids a chance to see the Harajuku: Tokyo Street Fashion exhibit in a different light.

• Make Harajuku and steampunk pins: Make your own personalized Harajuku- or steampunk-inspired pin to wear on your shirt, backpack, or hat. Using tulle, buttons, and beads, create a super kawaii (cute) pin, or, if you are feeling more steampunk, use leather, watch gears, and beads to create your stylized accessory. Or... a combination of both! 

• Drawing Contest: Kids ages 1 to 17 are encouraged to enter! The museum gives contestants a theme and drawing supplies. The winner receives a Supporting Membership to the Honolulu Museum of Art ($100 value), and his or her artwork is used to create the following month’s event brochure and is posted on the museum's website. See last monthʻs winner below!
