What I did next...

Hello... well, well, well Costume Showcase has been and gone. It was a really great night. I hope to get quite a few photos to show you what treats where there to be found. Our class was really happy and that's what you want to be... not to mention have a good ole boogie after the main event :)

I have promised a lot from previous blogs namely along the lines off 'i will show you this when I have finished' and now I may find the odd spare hour to get some of those things on the move. In the meantime I have been asked to see the hats. So I thought yup I could post just pictures but how about if I did a 'mini series'. Having meet some of you now and knowing that if you are either/all, crafty, arty, technical and are prone to day dreaming a little you like to know how the end result became the end result.

So I thought I will show the pictures of all finished three hats... all at once... but then my next few blogs will have pictures of my visual diary for each, development images and written accounts of my thought processes. I will make these available in PDF downloads.

So here are the finished hats.

This weekend was also really great. Karen (of lightdress fame, amongst other things) and I had a day out on Saturday. Its been so long since I had a day to wander around and do exactly what I liked (just like Audrey in Roman Holiday).

First we went around town from Aro Valley towards Te Papa. We stumbled into a few places along the way, namely Swonderful. WOw! I love their clothing label Papercup. Elegant, contemporary and fun. Then on to Te Papa to see the interactive architecture, I loved the umbrella digital light reactive flowers and the reactive music table. Then we walked around Oriental Parade, got gelato, and some great photos.

Then I went to see the film Moon with my guy. I really loved it, the music is amazing, fantastic acting, it looks stunning and oh gosh I wished I had designed the poster, a touch of Bridget Riley.

Anyways, I'd better go I have some hat blog entries to get organised!
