Colorado State University Entomology Instructor Creates a Buzz with Bee Beard 

Feature Story ImageFORT COLLINS – When Colorado State University entomology instructor Mathew Camper wanted to illustrate a point for students, he called for help – from 10,000 bees. Camper had thousands of the stinging insects buzzing around, crawling on and clinging to his torso, head, neck and face while he offered his mug as the milieu for a bee beard. The entomologist will use photos and videos from the stunt to demonstrate honey bee behavior and disposition for students. “Honey bees are really gentle, the gentle teddy bears of the insect world,” said Camper, a faculty member in the Department of Bioagricultural Sciences and Pest Management. “The bee beard is a great teaching aid to make this point.”

Butterflysoulfire’s Spring 2012 Collection Works with an ‘Urban Ape’

by Accidental Bear

butterflysoulfire7 Exot der Zeit by Christoph Voy for Butterflysoulfire Spring 2012

Giving up your tickets to the theater might be a smart choice as fashion lookbooks and photo shoots of collections these days have given us front row seats and a mind full of thoughts to play with. Designer Maria Thomas and Thoas Linder hit us with the idea of an “urban ape” for their current collection. If you can take your attention away from the ape masks, you will see garments with a stretchy sports vibe and loose casual draping. These clothes make me think modern dance company. Beats me, it really is all about the masks. (Fashionisto)
