Fandom weekends.

Comic Con & Divergent Premiere

Bonjour!
So over the past two weekends I have attended two very exciting events. Last weekend I attended Comic Con in Birmingham where I met some of the cast of Sleepy Hollow and also Greyston Holt from Bitten. Below are a few shots I took through out the day.





This weekend just gone I decided to head to the Divergent Premiere in Leicester Square in hopes of seeing some of the stars from the film. After queuing over night (which was not as bad as expected) we managed to get a very good spot. I managed to get a few photographs with many of the cast members including KATE WINSLET! It was a surreal experience talking to these amazing people and getting to ask them about what they were wearing. Ignore the fact I look exhausted and just appreciate the beauty of these people. Also thank you to my amazing friend Sarah for putting up with me.

D.I.Y Frozen themed shorts.

D.I.Y

So as the Spring and Summer approaches I like to start cracking on with getting my wardrobe ready. One of the many things I really enjoy doing is d.i.y pieces. I love taking one piece of clothing and turning it into something else. My favorite d.i.y. is making customized shorts. I take an old pair of high waisted jeans and turn them into something unique. Below is a quick tutorial on how to make your own shorts!
I went for a frozen styled theme for this just because I loved the film however you can add whatever detail you want!

Tools needed:
Old Jeans
Detail you may want to add (sequins, lace, etc)
Scissors
Bleach (optional)
Spray Bottle (Optional)
Sewing kit

 Step 1 - First you want to get your jeans and measure them up against you. You then want to decide how long you want your shorts to be. Place then down on the floor and draw a line on each leg making sure both are equal. Then you want to cut down the line and remove the rest of the jeans. 
Above is how your shorts should then look. 
 Step 2 - If you want your shorts to look distressed and slightly dyed I suggest getting some bleach and pouring it into a spray bottle. Once outside or in a open area gently spray the bleach onto the areas you want to dye. 
 Step 3 - Once spraying leave the bleach to soak in for about 15 mins (or whenever the bleach starts to come up as a white colour). Once doing this then you can take your shorts inside and thoroughly wash them with soapy water. 
You may need to do this two times or else if you leave any bleach on them the denim may turn yellow instead of white. Once washed and dried you can now customize them!
Step 4 - You can decorate your jeans however you want or you may just want to leave them as they are.I decided to take an old top that had pretty detailing on the straps and cut it so so I could use the detail on the bottom of my shorts instead. I stitched along the edge of the shorts to make sure the lace would stay on correctly.
And tada!
You now have a pair of customized shorts ready for the spring and summer!
I hope you enjoyed my first d.i.y post!
Please let me know what you think and whether you do any d.i.y pieces!

The Photography Show.

Event Overview

Bonjour everyone!
Definitely keeping on track with the blog posts this week & hope you are enjoying them!
So this past weekend I also attended the Photography show. Not only did our university have a stand which I had to work on but I also went an extra day to go and see the Rankin talk. Rankin if you did not know if a very famous and well known fashion photographer from the UK. If you have not checked out his magazine Hunger you really should!
The talk itself was very interesting and I gained many tips from the photographer. He talked about the fashion industry and also discussed about many of his iconic images.

Also at the show was of course many stalls selling products, advertising companies and giving tutorials on certain objects. There were many things through out day to keep everyone entertained. One of my favourite parts was the catwalk. During my time at the show they had models walking on the catwalk in traditional theatre costumes which were all beautiful!
Below are a few shots I took of the costumes & models.
Overall the show was very successful & interesting.
I gained many contacts during the show and talked to lots of interesting people!
