Eddie Izzard Force Majeure live dvd

I don’t know why, but I’ve gone off Eddie Izzard a bit lately. Maybe it’s because he was being a little too boastful about his wonderful mind when he was interviewed on the Last Leg earlier this year. Or maybe it’s his politics. I watched the dvd with an open mind though…

Review of Lilith, the shop in Glastonbury

You can’t fail to notice Lilith, about a third of the way up the hill on Glastonbury High Street; its shop window display is always stunning and draws you in, but beware….

Atlantis review – Saturday evenings on BBC1

I loved Robin Hood and it is definitely my favourite kids BBC drama (well, up to the point where they stupidly killed off Marian). It took a couple of episodes to get into it, but I really enjoyed Merlin as well (forgetting the last episode which contains the most stupid decision in BBC drama history). So now we have Atlantis…

Game of Thrones costumes

I’ve decided to keep a separate blog just for Oshun updates and posts about alternative fashion. My latest one is a little about the making of my Khaleesi costume; currently selling well for Halloween. Have a look here.

Super hero costumes

supermantutuSuper heroes are bound to be a common sight at Halloween this year. I loved kick-ass and can’t wait to see the sequel. I also thoroughly enjoyed Batman a few years ago, but apart from that, I can’t say I’m a big fan of super hero comics or films. Never-the-less, they make a perfect costume opportunity, and so I’ve gathered a few of my favourites from the hand-made community of Etsy….

Oshun at The New Forest Fairy Festival

newforest1I’ve just got one box to unpack and a couple of bits and pieces still knocking around the back of the land rover, but other than that, I’ve pretty much recovered from having a stall at the New Forest Fairy Festival….

Living with hypothyroid disease

Some of you may have read a rather depressing blog post I did a while ago about my experiences with hypothyroidism. Not much has really changed for me since then, but I have just found a wonderful page with some really good advice, so I thought I’d share it. There are some excellent links worth clicking on as well.

Introducing the Oshun Traveling Boutique

hairclipsI am very busy at the moment planning and preparing for my first festival stall. The Oshun Traveling Boutique is going to be at the New Forest Fairy Festival on 24th – 25th August at Burley Park, Burley, Hampshire. Have a look at the website; lots of entertainment has been organised and Josephine Wall and Linda Ravenscroft are going to be there. I can’t wait!
Along with all my fairy and steampunk inspired handmade clothing, I’ll be taking smaller items – hairclips and jewellery, which are not yet for sale in my Etsy shop.

Sunday Glastonbury 2013 review

Had a bit of a lie in as the first act we wanted to see was Bruce Forsythe in the Avalon tent. Another silly place to put him – he could’ve easily had an early pyramid slot. The place was jam packed – it was a good job we got there early and saved ourselves a good spot….

Saturday Glastonbury 2013 Review

Another hot day forecast, which really messed up my costume plans. Spent ages dithering as to what to wear, so didn’t get in in time for The Infinite Monkey Cage in the Cabaret tent, which was a shame. They had stopped allowing people in as it was so packed….
