Surry Hills Festival











a few weekends ago i went to surry hills festival with harriet and vanessa. after walking around for what seemed like forever, we did finally make it there! i didn't realise they'd changed the venue from the last time i went so we walked all the way to the old one and then had to walk back to where it was actually being held. highlights of the day include lots of free gummi bears, delicious corn fritters with avocado salsa and haloumi, running into several friends i hadn't seen in a while, the $10 vintage stall where i bought a dress and an adorable pair of shorts that look like a skirt, getting lots of compliments on my new handmade floral headband, a photobooth with animal masks and props, and relaxing in the sunshine with my friends.














































later that night we ended up at a crazy halloween party in a warehouse. none of my friends dressed up because we didn't think anyone else would have, but when we got there we saw the huge amount of effort people had put into their costumes! i was the only one of my friends with anything resembling a costume (i.e. my kitty ears i wore because you don't really get many chances to wear them without looking crazy) so while we were there i painted a clown face on my friend kate. below is also the photo strip harriet and i got from the festival that day, and a few photos of the best costumes - a crazyyyy scary zombie couple and some jerk in the way of my shot of dr. frank-n-furter and han solo.

    Totally love the pictures (best tones ever) and your eye makeup!

  3. I absolutely adore your film photography! Well, all your photography, really. Looks like such a fun quirky little festival! I wish Perth had more events like this, but I also work most weekends, which doesn't give me the time to go to them. :( Your kitty ears are so cute and your leopard print coat looks to die for!

  5. These pictures are so gorgeous (as usual!). Looks like you had a really fun day. I didn't make it to Surry Hills Festival because I was studying - maybe next time. You all look lovely but I particularly love your friend's red and white polkadot shirt!

    The Halloween party looked insane, the zombie is pretty damn scary! I think your "costume" worked out nicely, haha.

  11. Looks like an incredible amount of fun! I absolutely love the picture of the animal masks - I find them kind of sinister, but beautiful at the same time. Your photographs are making me miss summer - it's getting really chilly up here!
