M.U.A. – Cassahra Rose | Headpiece – Cherry Pie Millinery
Hit the runway in a jacket by Von Chibi paired with jaunty hat by Cherry Pie and a 3-tiered jabot I’d whipped up in the week before the show.

Despite a fevered ability to take thousands upon thousands of photographs of invertebrates and interesting looking rocks, I’d left the camera at home that day, so only snapped a handful of vaguely unfocused selfies with the phone.
Please go binge-watch this good free thing on the YouTube called Trying My Best by local comedy troupe Birthday Loyalty Club which I am shamelessly promoting because my incredibly handsome and talented co-pilot Sian (MaEmon) is involved:
The Melbourne Alternative Designers Fashion Showcase is coming up on Saturday the 25th of March (that’s this Saturday) at the St. Kilda Town Hall from 6:30pm through until 11:30pm. If you’re in Melbourne and interested in seeing some of our local designers strutting their stuff then come and check it out!
All blog entries have been updated, so links and images should be back in proper functioning order. Please let me know if you encounter any issues.
Other recent updates include removal of delayed image loading from both the blog and comic as it was being temperamental. Image loading times just weren’t enough of an issue to warrant arguing with it.
Weirdly, upon arrival home on January 1st 2017 everything was still more or less the same as it had been prior to leaving on December 31st 2016. Aside from the cat vomit on the carpet that is, pretty sure that wasn’t there when we’d left. Not that I’m any stranger to cleaning cat vomit out of the carpet at 2am of course. That’s just something you gotta deal with when keeping felines inside your home, regardless of what time of the year it is. So…
So, uh… Somebody paid for my brunch on Sunday and I have no idea who it was? Was it somebody I know? Or who knows Jun (since you paid his too)? Presumably if you’re an acquaintance you’d have said “hi” so maybe it was just one of those Random Acts Of Kindness people sometimes do? Then again, it was 11am on a Sunday and I’m not saying that my sleeping habits are Entirely Fucked™ but even on a good day I tend not to recognise people out of context so maybe you did try to say hi?
If so: I am very sorry for ignoring you.
In any case, I am still very confused, nonetheless, thank you.
Of course, being very confused is my natural state of existence, so.
You know whose trousers were finished in time for a photo shoot at the beginning of the year?
Though Oberon himself hasn’t been out in full even now, some… almost a year later. The Goat was the one who debuted his trousers, for the aforementioned photo shoot, in January, which was discussed here, during April (your feeble human concepts of linear time mean nothing to me).
Ignoring the specifics, it really has been a year. Oberon was last year’s New Year costume and I’m only typing this entry halfway through constructing this year’s project.
But more on that hot mess later. And by “later” I may or may not mean “this time next year” (assuming I live that long).
Can you believe there was a time when I’d write down everything every single day? That was 10 years ago. Motivation? Never heard of it.
Now, in December, it might actually be time to explain the construction of that whole Oberon mess in a little more detail.
