Adorning Wakanda: Meet Douriean Fletcher, the jewelry designer for 'Black Panther'

In creating the world of Wakanda, the fictional African country that's home to T'Challa, Shuri and the other characters in Marvel Studios' new "Black Panther" movie, much care was given to special effects, landscapes and spaceships. Even the seemingly small details of the armament worn by the Dora Milaje, the king's guards led by Danai Gurira's character Okoye, and the accessories worn by Queen Ramonda (Angela Bassett) and other members of the royal court required the big-budget production to turn to someone innovative.

Crafting a comfy space

"You won't find any modernist box developments in this neighborhood," says Cassandra Corum as she offers a tour of her Koreatown home. Indeed, the two-story Craftsman that Corum shares with Shannon Reese looks out over a tree-lined street in a historic preservation district populated with stately homes. Located between downtown L.A. and Hancock Park, the neighborhood feels of another era – one where side-by-side, six-bedroom, single-family homes were the norm.

On Gardening: Near-perfect Mysty, a hot commodity this spring

Mysty will be the hottest plant at the garden center this spring, and it's likely, everyone will want several. Mysty is the dazzling new compact salvia indigo spires that was the talk of all the trials last year. Most trials score on a 1-5 scale, and Mysty was well over 4 at Young Plant Trials in Alabama, UGA Trials in Athens, Ga., and at the prestigious Penn State Trials, it was near perfect.
