I felt sorry for this poor vintage creature when I found him at the London Dungeon car boot sale. Yes! they really did have a stall selling all their Jack the Ripper tour stuff and booty when they moved location in London. I curled the vintage creature round the brim of a brown tweed hat with a few other curios and artifacts.

An amazing day at the vintage car boot sale in wonderful sunny weather and a great atmosphere. An ideal place to find those cute vintage outfits and unusual artifacts for me to add to jewellery and accessory making.
A wonderful evening spent at the Gala Nocturna ball with the theme Beauty and the Beast, held in Antwerp and this year the evenings venue was the Antwerp Zoo. A brilliant ball room, majestic stair case and winter garden. I hope they hold another one next year and I can’t wait to hear the theme and venue.
All these beautiful and colorful outfits show why I love making clothing, accessories and headwear.
In the grounds of the Zoo.

I am enjoying making Cameos of all types but one of my favorites is the pink and teal Queen Victoria cameo hung on matching teal and pink ribbon and cord with a green patina finish to the metal cameo setting.
All my items can be customized to suit your style and colours. I have glued a faux leather backing to the cameos to protect sensitive skin against the patina finish.
I make a whole range with Queen Victoria – earrings, brooches and cuff link cameos
I am in love with the handmade confectionery making company Empire Edibles… If you want your sweet treats with a hint of adventure! My current favorite from them is the Absinthe flavour range of fondants and fudges. Delectable! and anything green has to be good for you!

Some more photos from the Bram Stoker International Film Festival fashion show 2012 taken at Whitby, UK. the celebrated town of Dracula and wonderful for all followers of goth. Whitby has recently been in the news for its terrible land slides in the graveyard where reportedly “human bones were raining down” on to the cottages and gardens below. A very sad scene for such a historic and beautifully situated Church. Link to the story on the BBC below.
Introducing model: Terri De-Lis Altilar at the fashion show, wearing human jaw bone, skull mini top hat, rib cage corset and sheer black fish tail skirt. I promise no bones were used from Whitby’s church yard.
