This past week I have had a birthday. Happy birthday to me!!! Yes *pat on the back* I am making this about me. In case you are wondering, I am now pushing 30.
So last year my friend and I came across this cafe, but were unable to attend due to plans we already had. As a special birthday treat, she took me here to come and make slime.
I know what you are thinking, slime, isn’t that for kids? Well, technically it is, but when we went it was mostly adults and couples.
When you come in, you order and drink (if you want) and pick the kind of slime you want to make. If you look at the pink board there are eight different kinds of slime to choose from. Slime or slimes? Is it a countable noun? I know I am an English teacher, but some times I can’t brain.
Anyways, my friend and I chose different slime but the making process is the same. One could also paint a character as seen in the picture below.
As you can see from the two pictures above, after picking your slime you can choose “toppings” in different amounts to make your slime more fun. I didn’t, but my friend chose glitter. We left the cafe sparkly. Glitter is truly the STI of the art world. Don’t let other people tell you differently.
Once we sat down they brought out the supplies. The big container is the base of the slime. The small hearts to the side are the “special” ingredients for our slime. We also had spatulas to mix before taking it into our hands. At this point, they put some weird liquid like thing on our hands so I couldn’t take photos passed this set. Which makes me so angry because I saw a dog (through the window) on the roof of the building across the street and no one believes me!
So the basic process was this:
- Put clear liquid in the big container and mix with the spatula. First it becomes doughy, then pasty, then finally slimy.
- Take it out of the jar and mix in the “special ingredient” while playing with it in your hands. Make sure you thoroughly mix it together and make sure it doesn’t touch your clothes cause it will stick and stain.
- Add a fragrance. Mine smells like peaches. MMMMMMMMMMMM
- Play and have fun.
My slime (as seen above) is the magnet slime. It is magnetic and can slowly craw with the pull of a magnet. Plus it is dark, like my heart and soul.
My friend’s monstrosity as I call it, cause you know glitter. Her’s is the heat sensatitive slime. Its base is an orange-red color. The hotter it gets, it changes colors. It goes from red to orange to yellow. It is quite amazing.
This is the container to take it home. Isn’t it cute?
I wish I had more to say, but if you get a chance to go to Hongdae (in Seoul) stop by the Monster Slime cafe. It is a great way to have fun with your friends.
P.S. we passed by a vintage clothes shop on the way there, and saw this Spiderman. His butt is up and his batch is arched. Spiderman is a bottom.
