And Then The Sun Came Out..

Sorry for the lack of posts and replies over the last few days. I've been at the Big Chill music fesival.. These are some of the pictures from the event. Considering I took 623 over the course of 4 days, they had to be edited down rather a lot! Enjoy...





These two pictures were taken by my friend Esme. I'm wearing a gold cardigan thing that I found in the dressing up box a few years ago. I actually made the necklace. It's christened " Mummy's scissors" as they are my mum's old sewing scissors, bandaged up in silk like a mummy. I got complimented on them a few times over the
weekend which was nice :)
This dress is made from a skirt. I just pulled it up and added a belt.. This was in the "enchanted garden" at the top of the hill. Beautiful views.



This was an art installation in one tree, with some amazing white dresses! These were 2 of my favourites, but they were all pretty stunning.


Esme outside our tent with her very big backcombed hair and lovely skirt.


I saw this bag when I was watching Noah and the Whale. I think I want it rather a lot! It's so gorgeous, I'm now looking out for a brown leather satchel like this.

















I saw some great outfits too! These are just the two best, I particularly love the gingerbread men.
We managed to break the world record for most zombie extras caught on film, and this is the effigy/ statue that they had built. I think it was burnt on Sunday night.













I saw some great music, the best being Marina and the Diamonds and Emmy the Great. Both amazing!



















We had a lot of fun at the bubble stall.. It was quite hard to drag Esme away to go and see Noel Fielding and Dylan Moran.. (The latter being some of the best comedy I've ever seen.)








The dereliction drive in was popular. All these abandoned cars that you sit in, graffitie on, or in my case, take pictures of!




























Known as Lucille, the Car of Doubt, you could write anything to do with doubt (surprise surprise!)














I saw these guys and couldn't resist taking a picture!















But the excitement was too much for some people.. Here's esme, exhausted with all the fun (;

My apologies. What I meant was the picture of that person as your heading (the black and white pic.) How did you do it, and place it? I'm tired of using blogspot designs. I would like to make my own.
