What is a Cosmic Outfit/Space Suit in “Cosmic Couture”?
These articles of clothing are meant to represent the outside skin that people have to develop and wear in order to navigate social and cultural spaces. It’s a metaphor—especially now. They are imagined clothing and can be assembled and created out of anything to wear.
