March 26 is Diana Ross’ birthday, in celebration of that I have decided to dress as her. Of course if you’re going to do Diana Ross the costume comes down to the hair. Luckily I have naturally curly hair, so all I had to do to create her beautiful bouffant was take a brush to it.
Today is the main day of the Secret Garden Festival. The Secret Garden Festival is a festival that celebrates music, art and entertainment. Held in a secret location outside of Sydney the concept is that everyone dresses in costume to enjoy live music acts and mingle. Secret Garden is a not for profit event with all proceeds going to the Sarah Hilt Foundation, a cause close to the hearts of the Secret Garden team. There is no theme for Secret Garden festival on the main day, like their is on the Friday night, so I thought that of a costume that would look most out of place for this festival held on a farm….and that would be a Baroque period costume ala Marie Antoinette.
I am head over heels in love with this costume from Smiffy’s, the panniers that go under the gold skirt make it look crazy big and don’t even get me started on the corset detail! (I’ve included a close-up pic) I am so excited to show this off, so I’ll be sure to include more pics once I’m back from the festival so that you can see it in action!
For the seventh day of Christmas I have decided to take on the theme of the three wise men, dressing as each of them. Big shout out to St. Nicholas Sunday School for letting me borrow their Christmas concert costumes.

July 23rd is the anniversary of the Egyptian Revolution of 1952. So I thought today I’d go for a classic Egyptian queen theme channelling Cleopatra. And let me tell you, that classic hieroglyphics stance is a bitch to position, tres uncomfortable.
