Snapshot of the Day

Mata Hari performs a Javanese Dance in 1905.

Or at least her version of a Javanese dance! She had lived in that region of the world for a few years during her marriage, and her costume is (very loosely) based on that of Wayang dancers, but I think we can safely say it’s pretty much Mata Hari’s creation.

I want an outfit like this.
