Last Sunday, I headed out to Supanova. For those who have been looong time readers, you’ll know I used to work in the convention industry. My last con was 6 years ago, so it’s been an age since I’ve been to one. Boy have they grown! I was quite stunned at just how huge it’s grown.
Having put a poll on Twitter asking which of two outfits I should wear, and the clear winner was an Ursula/Disney Villians themed outfit. I think it turned out pretty well and I was super comfy. Seeing as I was working on three hours of sleep comfort was a big thing.
One of the main reasons I headed to Supanova was the Authors! Three of my favourite authors were there and on Sunday they had a panel I really wanted to see. “Welcome to the Wolfpack” was a panel featuring Keri Arthur, Patricia Briggs and Maria Lewis all about their take on Werewolves. The panel was packed with feminism, history and lots of laughs.
Lack of sleep meant eyebags larger than normal. That problem was solved by going all out with glitter! Yep, I was up at 6:30am to do my hair and makeup. I played around with a wrap necklace to create a harness type effect and use that to pin my Ursula brooch on.
My hair has some major regrowth going on and is in desperate need of a dye, so I decided to wear a wig. I braided my hair into the front and covered it with my trusty flower headband. It apparently seemed real enough I had a lady ask what dye I used!
All these photos were taken in the afternoon. I forgot to put setting spray on my make up but luckily it stayed put brilliantly. If I can say so myself! I had a brilliant day and picked up heaps of fun things I can’t wait to share in upcoming posts.
Hi! My name is Natalie, sometimes I take my outfit pictures when I am bloated from my periods and forget to tuck my shirt in properly. Basically, I am human and quite un-perfect. Just trying to be real here! Some blogs are so picture perfect it looks like the images are straight from a magazine. Don’t get me wrong, I love that, but that won’t ever be me.
While I am being honest, I don’t really like the whole “choker attached to outfit” trend that is going on atm. This was a spur of the second impulse buy because I do love the look of it. A day or two after I bought this they released a very similar top without the choker and I just sighed. I do adore this top though, and I think the fact it looks more like a harness is what made me buy it. I think in my head I could justify it as not being a choker.
How gorgeous is this skirt? When I was in Sydney recently I ducked into the BeMe store and picked up a few things. I wasn’t originally going to get this skirt (I had a crochet cardigan and a kaftan/cover up) but they had a deal where if you spent a certain amount you got money off, and well, that money off went to buying this skirt! The skirt looks even better when your top is tucked in correctly and not making it bunch up.
I always forget to show my handbag in my outfit pictures, I need to put a sticky note on my camera to remind me. My current handbag I’m using 90% off the time is this Laura Jones bag from Strandbags, my parents bought it for me while we were on holidays. I just love the print (can you tell I’m loving florals?) and the mix of grey and pinks just make my soul happy.
The sleeves on the top are amazing! I just want all the flouncy and bell sleeves I can buy. Finding something for under this top was slightly challenging and I’m glad I remembered I had this bandeau. Nope, I’m not wearing a bra either. I think you could totally rock this with a strapless bra, I only have a nude and think that would have looked a bit strange. I also didn’t want to ruin the OTS look with bra straps.
Louis, of course, decided to help out. Unlike Tonka, he is very cat like and thinks boxes are the best things ever. Especially when he can chew on them, as evidenced above. He doesn’t care about fashion, but he loves the packaging it comes in!
