Churches in the moonlight

Gothic architecture silhouetted by the light of the moon was effectively creepy and awe inspiring while on my bus ride home early in these wee hours. We had missed the last metro by a hair and were stuck to deliberate how in the hell we would be getting home, two hours later and a blister on my feel, I am home. Prior to this short series of unfortunate events, I was at a Hallows Eve party dressed as a kitty and half the time I forgot I had anything on my face, but I was surrounded by some pretty fantastic costumes. For example, there was a pack of trident gum, a bonbon, The Queen of Hearts, a 20s flapper, an English school girl, wonder woman, Leeloo Minai Lekarariba-Laminai-Tchai Ekbat De Sebat, a Steam punk spin doctor, a male prom queen, a Bourgeois Femenist and Reverand Run from Run DMC.

I also had my palm read by a self-proclaimed psychic and she was on the money maker without a word from me, it was freaky-marvelous the way she described and explained the squares, lines and stars on my hand.

AND, on my way home I saw a girl with the most amazing Calaveras face painting on.

Needless to say, 'twas a good one.

Things are going well, I am gritting my teeth.

Attempted a Zeppole recipe via the wonderful Pictures and Pancakes blog.

First day on the sort of job

Gave my very first workshop today to about 20 (?) second year design students at school and it was if only slightly terrifying. Not entirely, seeing as I knew what the hell I was talking about but surprisingly it was strange to try and "teach" others about it, and having their full attention. Eyes eyes eyes eyes eyes eyes eyes! There were a few laughs, which was good, and they liked my zines, which was GREAT.

I was really impressed by my ex-teacher now sort of boss, she added much needed glitter to my explanations during a few dry spots and I was in awe of her skill at connecting interesting facts to thread and fabric.

Partying times

This turned out to be a real birthday weekend bash. Two close friends celebrated their birthdays, one after the other, which meant restaurant food (one bond themed and the other a sushi place ~ I had none sadly but did get to discover red bean ice cream, mmmm..) and drinking, and quite an intense bit of it, but the headaches were gone after a good half hour of my life I'll never get back of Jersey Shore. The biggest trip in fact, was going to Candi Bar only to be surrounded by fist pumpers with side ways caps or gelled hair, oh and all of the girls looked exactly the same. The jujubes in my Dr. Martens drink was a nice touch, though. Hooray for people being born! Minus snookie and the situation.

This was meant to be a birthday gift of hello kitty fondant cupcakes inspired by Annie's Eats' version. I used store bought mini muffins due to time constraints but eventually gave up making a dozen as the fondant I had previously prepared was NOT complying. I will have another go in the near future.

This one is a handmade gift for the other friend, it was supposed to be a purse but ended up way too small and the right size for a makeup case.

I followed a tutorial on youtube through thread banger to make it:

I knew I was going to go loco with perfect binding, if only the taste in my mouth wasn't so bitter.

The need to own my photo booth has been growing lately especially due to the fact that I can't find the stash I've so well hidden. I see knitted/crocheted face creatures and beards in my not so distant future,
