The main feature of our display case this year, however, is a mirror set-up. Students made cut-outs of traditional German Lederhosen and Dirndl. They included the clothing, arms and legs, but left off the heads. We then attached a mirror so that when students go up to the display, they'll see themselves "wearing" the outfits. We put the hashtag #GermanSelfie on the mirror to encourage students to publish pictures of them in their German get-ups.
I got this idea from somewhere on Pinterest (I believe) or on another blog. Unfortunately I can't find the source of the original post, but it had the same idea but with traditional clothing form Spanish-speaking countries. If you know where the original poster came from, please let me know so I can credit them here.
