Paris Part 4


This my fourth and final post of my adventures in delightful Paris, the last day was a bit of a strange mix, although in my opinion great fun! We started off with a Tim Burton exhibition that we discovered was on. I'm a fan of his eerie but sweet style, we got to see the original Edward Scissor hands costume which was incredible a real labour of love! Sadly I was limited  as the amount of pictures I could take (read barely any!) we did see many 3d  to scale models Tim Burton had created for his films and tons of his sketches from his earlier days. I was blown away to discover that he worked for Disney for quite sometime, but they found him  too much of a risk for their current audience at the time, so its pretty cool that he won them over with his production of Alice in Wonderland. I'm looking forward to seeing DARK SHADOWS staring Anne Hathaway and Johnny Dep, what it must feel like to be the only male lead that Burton will work with on his films, pretty good I imagine!!

skull vase raised pattern, flower with eyeball in the centre, loved the back drop, the style reminds  of a vintage St Georges flag

howling beast one of many Tim Burton sketches

Lift doors feature characters from the film Black Shadows

We headed off to the Louvre next, I have always been fascinated by Egypt so I really was'n't that fussed about taking photographs of anything else! If you have'n't yet been it's an amazing building in itself particularly the triangular glass exit point, that feels space aged. The last few photos include a Ninja Turtles van, that I knew someone who was a childhood fan back home would appreciate and the lady's toilets at the airport which were pretty swish! Hope you have enjoyed my slightly random Parisian tales mon ami .

I love Paris, I haven't been back in a while. My favourite experience was going to the Orangerie because the purpose built Monet gallery is truly breathtaking!
