lookin' at me with that fisheye

i gave in and got a fisheye camera. film camera nonetheless.
here's a few photos from my first film/try =)

souvenir mask from venice 

some of my books


the cool-looking chest we have to keep things in

trees outside the apartment

zach in battle stance

me in the shade

as you can see, i needed some flash more often than not, but i'm still pretty excited about them!
i love all their film-y goodness.

i just really hate birds

i hadn't planned on making this an outfit post, but since we got out before the sun started disappearing, we got some really cool shots (thanks to zach!), and so i think they deserve their own post
(and yes, i made another collar. i did warn you though.)

there are a whole lot of lakes here.. unfortunately that means there's also a whole lot of birds. big birds. with scrawny looking snake necks. that make death noises. and do things like this:

which meant most of the time i was doing this:

i just really hate birds!


oh and i uploaded my first thing to!
you can score it here: (go on, you know you want to)

collars galore!

i've been trying to take photos of these guys for ages, but it seems i keep choosing the wrong time of day/place/weather... so these will have to do!

over the summer i visited the liberty store in london, specifically the fabric floor, and fell in love. my mum then bought me some remnants at a craft fair she went to, and her friend sent me some after i came back here! so i was surrounded in the beauty of liberty fabric.... there was just not enough to make anything from. or so i thought.

then it hit me: removable collars!

(the grey actually isn't liberty.... neither is the crocheted one..)

i wore this one with a simple outfit most recently:

the bird fabric is probably my favourite... but fits with least things because it was my first successful one and i was still testing things out. (i did wear it reversed with my halloween costume though)

unless i come up with another moment of genius, i'm probably going to make as many collars as possible until the fabric runs out... watch this space!

halloween! (and celebration of a working camera)

hooray! my camera made it back safe and sound and functional... and just in time for halloween festivities!
i didn't want to cart it around though, especially after having waited so long, so we just took some quick snaps before we left:

 we were mod-stronauts! as in, people from the 60s dressed in astronaut helmets..(which i made myself)
i also made my dress and the collar that you can't see (but will be in a post soon because i have made a whole load of them)

and i forgot to take a photo of the back last night, so here's a quick shot of our mod target to finish the look!

 we had a blast, there were so many people out, and most of them had actually made an effort with their costumes, which i guess is what you get for going out in a city rather than a tiny little town/ my own house haha
