Leopara Lighting System

Achieving the perfect lighting, especially on the go, can present its challenges. We’ve all been faced with such a dilemma: dingy lighting in a hotel room bathroom, making makeup or shaving nearly impossible. Or even just brightening up a space during travel for a quick touch up in the car. Luckily, a new product from Leopara solves these issues. Their patented technology features a 360° makeup lighting system that is compact, portable, and delivers bright, gorgeous lighting through wireless GlamPanels that attach and detach to any mirror.

The Leopara Lighting System comes with numerous impressive features, making it the perfect purchase for applying make-up flawlessly, or achieving the perfect shave. The four mirror-mountable LED GlamPanels illuminate even the darkest space as they are engineered with 5000k Daylight White LEDS that mimic natural light. This effort towards natural light provides the ideal color temperature for grooming, avoiding the troublesome overly white or yellow lights often present when traveling. Compact, wireless, and mirror-mountable, the easily portable Leopara Lighting System can travel mirror to mirror, car to house, on the plane, to your hotel, and anywhere else you need to go! It fits right into any bag in its custom case along with a 4-in-1 USB charging cord. Cases come in three colors: Onyx Chrome, Electric Pink, and Leopard Lux.

Crafted from a matte black, high-quality aluminum with a polycarbonate lens, the Leonara is lightweight, durable, sleek, and chic. To attach to any mirror, merely use the GlamPanels to create a vacuum seal. Mirrors aren’t the only option either – any non-porous surface will work with the Leonara Lighting System including other glasses and screens, making it all the more convenient.

In 360’s experience with the product, we found the convenience to be overwhelming. For those always on the go, like 360, the convenience of having excellent lighting in a moment, anywhere, truly came in handy. It proved excellent for grooming needs while traveling. Not only that, but it also became useful in unexpected ways. For those taking pictures on the go, achieving the perfect lighting in content can be challenging. Yet with the Leopara lighting system, pictures are suddenly illuminated by a clean, natural light. Selfies, pictures of landscape, or food pictures all benefited from being a bit more lit with Leopara just out of frame.

The Leopara Makeup Lighting System is the brainchild Rachel Vicknair, a global beauty educator, former pro dance, and film and TV talent who need a solution to a major problem she repeatedly faced when traveling: bad lighting! On her company’s aim, Vicknair states they are “on a mission to change the way the world gets glam by developing innovative tools and accessories that empower women and their beauty routines, rather than limit them.” Before founding Leopara, she worked extensively in the beauty, wellness, and biotech industries. Vicknair also advises FLIK, the Female Laboratory of Innovative Knowledge, a community for female founders and leaders to connect with apprentices in order to provide mentorship. The Leopara system is now available on Leopara.com and Amazon for purchase.

The Museum of Selfies

TICKETS FOR THE MUSEUM OF SELFIES GO ON SALE TODAY

Pop-Up Exhibit Opens April 1, 2018 in Los Angeles for Limited 

Two-Month Engagement

Museum Also Plans to Set the Guinness Book of World Record for the 

World’s Longest Selfie Stick

The Museum of Selfies today announced it will officially open to the public on April 1, 2018 and tickets will go on sale today at 12 noon PST. Furthermore, a proposed Guinness Book of World Records item for the world’s longest selfie stick will be unveiled at the museum’s exclusive grand opening event and will remain on display as an exhibition piece throughout the pop-up experience. According to the Guinness World Records’ website, the current record holder measures 18 meters (59.05 ft).

Open for a limited time in Los Angeles, The Museum of Selfies is an interactive museum that explores the history and cultural phenomenon of the selfie – an image of oneself taken by oneself – with historical roots dating back 40,000 years to the first depiction of human art.  From cavemen drawings to a “Narcissist” installation to a vertigo-inducing rooftop selfie illusion, the museum touches on a variety of points in human history that examines the intention of the selfie and what it means to the artist and its viewers.  The interactive exhibit will allow visitors to create art of their own through the lens of history, art, and immersive vignettes. Your inner narcissist – whether you like to admit it or not – will be ecstatic.

The Museum of Selfies will feature various one-of-a-kind exhibits dedicated to the most popular image categories spanning mankind, including: the “high-up selfie,” a vertigo-inducing, rooftop selfie mimicking the top of skyscraper; the “bathroom selfie,” a two-sided room that lacks self-reflection but excellent for trick photography; the “food selfie,” a super-sized exhibit that satisfies taste buds and foodie fanatics; a “narcissist” exhibit examining the number of deaths from selfie-related accidents while also offering a lesson in Greek mythology; and many other unique selfie opportunities that are reminiscent today and of centuries ago. The museum will also feature works from modern artists from around the world providing their provocative and creative vision of the selfie phenomenon.

Regardless of one’s perception of the selfie sensation, the museum offers a highly-visual and educational experience with every installation while also encouraging the inner-artist to post and initiate a discussion of the origin of selfies and their meanings.  And while other museums may have banned them, selfie sticks aren’t just allowed inside, they are encouraged.

The Museum of Selfies is located at 211 N. Brand Boulevard in Glendale, CA and will be open for a limited run from April 1 through May 31, 2018. Hours of operation are Tuesday through Thursday from 12-8 p.m., and Friday and Saturday from from 12-10 p.m. and Sunday from 12-8 p.m. Ticket prices are $25 and kids under three are free.
