Last month’s MAD Fashion Showcase went well!
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.
3-Tier Spiderweb Jabot
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.
If you are interested in photographs (maybe also videos) from the runway, then please hit up the Facebook pages of Von Chibi Designs and Cherry Pie Millinery (whose works I was sporting) or that of Melbourne Alternative Designers to get a look at some of the many talented craftspeople this city has to offer!
Should you be interested in gratuitous closeup photographs of huntsman spiders then feel free to scroll on down and acquaint yourself with images of my energetic sparassidaughter, Spaghetti Joe:
Happy (slightly belated) New year.
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…
Why did this seem like a good opening tangent?
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.
A moment of silence for Toby ‘Tobes’ Spuds, the young Huntsman spider who had taken up residence in my workspace toward the end of October this year.
