The Gods Too Are Fond Of A Joke


What a busy couple of weeks it has been.

Firstly, Halloween... Oh, it is the best holiday. It's not well patronised in Australia but recently, people have been getting increasingly into it, especially the costumes.

I went as a Native American, inspired partly by Natasha Khan (see last post), this girl on Cobrasnake (below) and the lovely Kime Buzzelli over at The Moldy Doily (super below).


Below: appreciating nature, it is quite wonderous. I made my headdress about four weeks ago or so. The top bit is made out of the bottom of a leather skirt that I cut to make shorter, the 'beaded' bits are bits of dry pasta on string (like those macaroni necklaces that you used to make in kindy) covered with wool. Finally, I finished it off with a million feathers and a few Marc Jacobs-esque gems to keep it au courant.

Twas quite the night. Full of laughter and scraped knees.

Yess, I was just thinking how very Natasha Khan this is!

I love that girl so much!
Was preparing a post on her the other day, but couldn't find pictures that I thought did her enough credit.

Such a genius Halloween get up.

Halloween is and always has been my favorite holiday! I'm glad it's gaining popularity in Oz.

i really wanted to be a native american but where i live there happens to be a lot of, uh, real native americans and so its actually considered offensive and racist where i live

I just stumbled upon your blog- and have to say, i thought it was cool until I got to this post.

There are a lot of real Native Americans everywhere- including the web- and this does offend me.
