Kook has some splendorous schemes up her knickers...

Recollecting about many of the prominent figures in her life, Kook realized the influences of her drag/trans idols and peers seem to be outcasts from the mass typical drag/queer/trans community.
Each one re-inventing self-expression and becoming leaders in the art society
world wide through music,film and make-up artistry...

Such as:

*lEIGH Bowery
*Boy George
*Jayne County
*Phatima Rude(SF)
*Peaches Christ
*Squeaky Blonde
*Greer Lankton
*Jackie Beat
*Ginger Coyote
*Claude Cahun
(to name a few)

Kook was hit with the thought to pay HOMOage to them and curate a show inspired by their disguises,persona's and transitions from ordinary to extraordinary.
Another element of inspiration was the upcoming "Greer Lankton" exhibit occurring the following day on:

Friday July 9th in Hollywood:
ONE archive Gallery Museum (626 N Robertson Blvd).

Greer (1958-1996) was a portrait dollmaker and trans-gender punk artist. Her portrait dolls reflected such warholian stars as Candy Darling, anorexia beauties and obese side-show esque females.

Kook hand-picked some of her favorite artist to participate in this installation which will take place in L.A's bohemian neighborhood "Silverlake":

Friday July 8th
