Supernova Melbourne!

 
Are you a nerd?  I'm not...only a little bit.  But the rest of the family are into comics big time so we do all the comic related shows.  Fortunately for us, Australia has seen a spike of Con's starting up in the last couple of years.  I think there are 3 on in Melbourne in 2014!
 
Supernova was on last weekend and we went on the Saturday.  Big mistake.  The place was so packed you could hardly move and I felt a little claustrophobic.  Next year we are definitely going on a Sunday.
 

Miss 5 was a beautiful Ballerina, Miss 12 as Lady Loki and Miss Cousin was a girl tiger with chicken feet.  Miss 12 spent weeks making her costume, including sewing it all herself.  Her Dad helped her make her sceptor and she stole a pair of my boots.  After admitting defeat with numerous wire and paper mache attempts, I bought her handmade Loki helmet hat from Etsy!


"But Mum I don't know who this is!  Is it supposed to be a teddybear or something?"


I told him no touching the fembots.


With Master Chief
 

Fighting Loki....as Lady Loki.  Yes, it's confusing.


This guy said he spent a year making his astounding Iron Man costume.


This rabbit was evil.  So evil looking the kids were drawn to it.......


I still don't know.......



If you have tweenie aged kids then you know this is Slender.


Storm.  Check her eyes!  Creepy!


And Miss 5 LOVED Princess Peach. 
Her husband was Mario and their baby was dressed as a mushroom.....so cute!
 
As for me, I was happy to find several Kawaii themed stalls inside the building to look at.  I found a stall with super cheap Erstwilder jewellery and $5 super hero brooches.  There was also steampunk clothing to drool over and Baby Burgers mayo chips to eat.....so I ended up being pretty entertained.
 
Next up, Comic Con in July!

Supernova Comic Nails


 On the weekend was Supernova in Melbourne.  Photos coming of that tomorrow, but here are the nails I created for the day!

I used OPI Suzy Says Feng Shui, Designer Brands White and OPI Red my Fortune Cookie for the bases and my new fave Dead Set Babes Zap Bam Pow for the glitter.  I stamped with a Moyou plate.


Late night last minute photos aren't the best.  They looked pretty damn cool in real life. 
Did anyone else go to Supernova?

Vivid Colors, a Sexy Husband, Cat Shoes and Fabulous Celluloid


Well, if THAT title doesn't make you read this post then I just don't know what floats your boat!

Warm weather is coming to an end and it's a mad rush to get one last wear out of my nicest dresses.  No filters used on these photos, this dress is super vivid in color!  I doubt it had even been worn before I got my little novelty loving hands on it.



My shoes are fabulous.  I know. 
They are the new kitty heels by Irregular Choice.  Did anyone else cave and grab a pair?



The Sexiest Man on the Planet looks extra sexy in his tailor made suit from Phuket.  Yep, we got dragged into a suit shop and before you know it I had picked out a burgundy fabric and a skinny 60's styled suit pattern for the husband.  Burgundy is his color.

Leopard Print and a Dragons Eye


 
Since going quite silly at Trashy Diva's last 50% off already reduced prices sale, I have been wearing pretty much all TD.  Just as well all their clothes are super gorgeous!
 

My glass eye ring is a recent purchase from my last Glass Festival I exhibited at.  Us glassies all tend to 'trade beads' with each other.  It's so much nicer than paying money for our new pretties!
My marbled Bakelite is, of course, absolutely gorgeous.

A Little Bit Of Phuket

Don't worry, I won't bombard you all with a zillion posts about our recent holiday!  Instead, here is a small snapshot of what we got up to in Phuket.......
 


 
We rode on elephants
 
 
Got daily massages
 
 
Went snorkelling
 

 
And sea canoeing
 

 
Camped on a tropical island
 

Discovered pineapple fried rice


ate HEAPS of yummy food

 Visited temples
 
As you can tell, we had a great time!  It was a very relaxing holiday, 10 days was spent swimming everyday, eating and getting massaged.  I would definitely recommend it to anybody!  We also flew there very cheaply....Jetstar still have cheap flights on if you want to go!
