I told you were were all going to be hippies this coming summer. Burning Man happened for the 27th time this week, and “festival fashion” is a thing. Not only is there a “burner look“, but other festivals such as Glastonbury and Coachella are being mined for their style concepts.
It’s no use going to Burning Man and the like if your brain isn’t switched on. I’m enjoying this regular coallation of science news links by Aimee Whitcroft, Wellington-based geek extraordinare and the coordinator of Nerdnite Wellington. Get it in your feed and feel your IQ soar.
If the idea of wearing a wee wreath of flowers with your gumboots is too depressing, be inspired by my style crush of the week: “goth punk steampunky bohemian fairy” over at Couturgatory!
Or, check out the deliciously raw jewelry from Shh by Sadie – the creator alternates between being in Wellington, NZ and Wales. I saw some of her goodies at Rex Royale on Cuba Street recently. Hoping she restocks her Etsy store soon…
To rock your bohemian self, Aethercon is coming to Wellington again in the second weekend of October, with a theme of “post-apocalyptic steampunk.” I’m emceeing the daytime events and costume competitions, so start planning for your post-crash utopian looks. There’s also a steampunk ball that evening, with performers, plus costumes judged by visiting boylesque luminary Ray Gunn.
Lastly, Bohemian Rhapsody by the Muppets.
