Bristol Zombie Walk 2010

The Bristol Zombie Walk was amazing this year! I think it more than doubled in size this year compared to 2009. Last year, I was a Zombie broccoli:
This year, a zombie leek:

Hillbilly costume

I had the pleasure of attending a Hillbilly party last weekend, And thought I would go all out with my costume. With some time on my hands, I created this ‘hillbilly mask’ – inbred big ears, big lips, furrowed brow, complete with extra finger. It took a whole day and a half of my life. I made it with mod-roc and papier mache.

The Invisible Circus: St. Valentine’s day Massaquerade

“A night of heart breaking, soul shaking, rip roaring circus, theatre and spectacle played out to a seductive, melt your heart soundtrack from some of the hottest live bands and DJs around!”
The Invisible Circus’s St. Valentine’s day Massaquerade / Massacre / Masquerade is going to be incredible. This will be another sell-out event, and I have managed to get some tickets! As for the ‘Shotgun wedding’ dress code, I’m trying to think of something more exciting than just a plain old bloodied bride fancy dress costume. Any ideas?

Invisible Circus Day of the Dead Ball


Sounds good! I am busy making my halloween costume(S?) and excited about this weekend’s Zombie Walk, and possibly this Day of the Dead Ball by the Invisible Circus. Carneyville was just so good, I need more! So the dress code is ‘dead cool’?? How about cucumber? Ugh I hate cucumber! Or dressing as your general dead person… but where can I find colored contact lenses?

The Invisible Circus presents Carny Ville!

Wow I had a great night out last night. Carny Ville is a ‘circus theatre extravaganza’ and I was on of the lucky ones who could manage to get a ticket for the sold out show. The Invisible Circus and Art Space Life Space have transformed the Old Fire Station for the last time to create what feels like a circus village and reminded me of visiting Universal Studios when I was little.

There were 350 performers and apparently only 1000 tickets were on sale. All kinds of things were going on; tours of the police cells, Portrait photography, tightrope action, amazing live music played from a prison cell in the sky, silly dancing, a sit-down theatre, Carny Ville shops, everything… It was a real experience, I want to go again! They have just announced another weekend’s dates – the 2nd and 3rd October. the tickets are not yet sold out, but will be, so move fast! Book tickets here

Oh and everyone was in fabulous fancy dress. I felt like I was in a time warp.

In their words: “The spectacle inhabits every aspect and environ of the site with interactive installations and performances ongoing through out the evening from dizzying high wire walkers across the gaping yard space to twisted sideshows, huge Fire spectacles and flame breathing lamp posts alongside an army of deranged walkabout characters who inhabit this bizarre other world.”
