I’m moving to microblogging with this entry – it may be shorter than usual but I’m actually typing it on my iPhone which means the keyboard is a touch screen, hence micro! Not true microblogging I know, but I microblog all the time on Twitter (add me @carlyfindlay).
Today I’m finalising two costumes for events this week. Costumes are fun but I’m yet to go all out and custom make something on a sewing machine.
One is for a hens party – it’s a 1920s flapper theme so I’ll be wearing a vintage dress from Flair Vintage with a large headband and black heels. Probably not true 1920s but it gives me a chance to wear this dress!
The other is my ChIPS camp costume – it will be a surprise until it’s revealed at camp on Thursday night. this costume is a bit more DIY – it’s involved making an iron on tee shirt transfer. I actually created the picture in the design program Gimp which makes me very proud considering I’m bad at most things design on the computer. I have two pieces of clothing/footwear from my wardrobe that fits the theme perfectly, and I also sourced something from the department store-like opshop Savers. I’m very excited to reveal it at camp! And all will be revealed here post camp.
Ok Microblogging is tiring. Thumb is tired.
