Going through the cupboards and boxes with the kids can be lots of fun, especially when it includes curious clothes. Fox coat, vintage tuxedo, couture jacket, high heels. The combination of a full wardrobe, an empty room, two kids and a camera make for a few hours of fun dress-ups and posing.
If there’s one thing I love more than dress ups, it’s dress up parties. This evening’s opening party for Daniel Kneebone‘s ‘Alice-ism‘ (part of the Ballarat International Foto Biennale) was a dress up event, and boy did people dress up! There were queens of hearts, rabbits, mad hatters, and all kinds of other fabulous creations. When one is a costumey kind of person it is so much fun to be with a group of fellow costume lovers. And to top it off I had a lengthy conversation with Marie from Marquis de Sade about costumes, corsets and creativity.
