Costumes; Flowers, Wings and Glitter
So I've been making my own costumes since I started with my performing back in 2009.
That's 10 years of up-cycled dresses. Most of my costumes were found in second hand shops or were gifted to me by other people and they got the fairy-princess treatment of flowers, diamantes, ribbons and anything sparkly that I could find.
This summer, I am so excited that I have been asked to perform for a second time at the Fairytale Festival in Kilkenny, on behalf of Kilkenny Library Service.
At last year's festival, I wore this lovely peach, purple and pink outfit:
So I've searched and found the flowers, headband and shoes to match it and now it's time to pin, stitch and hot glue! I can't wait to wear the finished project at the Fairytale festival.
Last year I felt like a Disney princess as they even gave me my own throne to sit on while telling stories (although, anyone who has seen me perform knows that I rarely take a seat!)
What a fab treat for them and what wonderful parents they have for taking them there!
This year I will have more magic, music and, of course, copious amounts of fairy dust too! Fingers crossed for another fine and sunny day. Check back here for photos of my costume and to hear all about how the day went too.
