Alice inspired top hats

11 Mar

So worth a repost – imagine how much I am trotting out this amazing top hat at the moment. That said with all the Alice curiouser and curiouser activity it feels like lots of uninvited guests have joined the party at the moment.

Went into Prangsta today and had to share these pictures of the AMAZING rabbit top hat which I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE.

I am also lusting after this Ostrich feather adorned clown hat, and naturally have already eyed up this Medusa wig for Halloween…

Underwater Fancy Fair

2 Mar

The Chance Collective are going to be working alongside Idea Generation on the online PR / social media side of this event and we are very excited. Excited as for two days in March, you can walk through the Thames Tunnel.

Walk through the Thames Tunnel for the first time during the day for 145 years – and for the last time in at least 100 years

Do so and you will be joining an historic, underground Fancy Fair in the tunnel which stretches under the river Thames from Rotherhithe to Wapping.  This summer the Thames Tunnel will once again see trains running through it, as the East London Line Extension goes live so fair to say this will be the ONLY chance in your lifetime to do this!!! To give you an idea of how cool it is you can already buy things like this ‘peepshow’ from the Science Museum.

London’s Thames Tunnel was completed in 1852, built by world-famous engineers Marc and Isambard Kingdom Brunel. The Thames Tunnel was one of the most outstanding engineering achievements of the Victorian era and ultimately paved the way for the Tube system. Hand-coloured lithographed peepshow in six sections. The cover scene shows the Thames Tunnel staircase with vignettes including the Crystal Palace and Parliament buildings. The influx of visitors to London for the Great Exhibition of 1851 stimulated the production of a vast quantity of souvenirs, including this topical peepshow. The long arcades of the Crystal Palace and of Marc Brunel’s Thames Tunnel (opened in 1843) were ideal subjects for the peepshow, a simple optical toy which had first become popular in the eighteenth century.

I am going as a “Zombie Orville the Duck” (am still looking for my Keith if anyone is interested) to all the parties on Saturday but if I wasn’t then I heart this balloon boy costume!  The other astonishing fact I have discovered is that is possible to create an entire Orville the Duck costume from American Apparell.

20 Sep

I have already posted about the high fashion take on Where The Wild Things Are but it is these ‘home-made’ costumes which have wreaked havoc with my biological clock.

Inspired? Someone has posted details on how to make your own over at Instructables. Or less hardcore are these instructions on how to make a Max hat.

Where The Wild Things Are is shaping up to be AWESOME with more and more cool stuff happening around the promo of the movie. This Christian Joy activity is amongst one of the most exciting collaborations so far.

In honor of Where the Wild Things Are, Christian Joy (best known as the designer behind the Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ Karen O’s crazy costumes) has created five monster suits based off of the Wild Things and Max. All costumes will be on display and for sale at Space 15 Twenty, with a percentage of the proceeds donated to 826 Valencia.
