Surrey Steampunk Covention [Nov. 9th, 2017|12:46 pm]
Sunday 5 November : Surrey Steampunk Covention

We’ve been there on loads of Saturdays, so for once we decided to see what it was like on a Sunday, a lot quitter, as only taking place in one venue but still as filled with silliness and quirkiness. There was pantyhose bowling, a very impressive pirate-steampunk themed pole dance, talks about Basilisks and other weird things. Lilly wandering around cuddling various rescued reptiles, ‘The Experimental Sonic Machines’ was quite an experience , full of wires, instruments , circular punch-cards, a tin foiled drum playing robot and several costume changes . My favourite version was the rotating bucket head one. Poor Simon had to follow such an unusual surreal act with Hi-Reciprocity…luckily singing about sinister ducks, witch, dark gardening and obituaries seemed to do the trick :).
We then had some teapot racing, canon shooting of cuddly toy and a shark zeppelin flying whilst a man was playing ambient on some very complicated synth machine and fractal pictures…the usual Sunday in New Malden

on the Saturday i made a new skirt for it , so decided i should make a new hat too :), need to tweak with it so not on an headband as the back of my ears still sore...

I have been making Art I saw this idea in Castlefest and whilst tidying my craft area re-discovered the perfect doll waiting to be a project. Thanks to Simon dad for making a stand for her, now I just need to find a space to display her

Thor Ragnarok [Nov. 3rd, 2017|10:26 pm]
 Monday 30 October: Thor Ragnarok

We went to see Thor Ragnarok last night, whoaa... to date i think my favorite in the superheroes/comic genres...the other Thor were quite forgettable so I was surprised how much I enjoyed that one, very tongue in cheek, fast and fun and well any film that stars with Led Zeppelin and have Loki and Dr Strange (Tom and Benedict ) in one room (even if briefly) ...i am sold 🤭but still annoyed that they cut his hair at least they did not touch Loki hair!!

Harry Potter and the History of Magic [Nov. 3rd, 2017|09:05 pm]
Friday 27 October: Harry Potter and the History of Magic

The Harry Potter: History of Magic is very worth visiting if you like rare books, beautifully illustrated manuscripts full of mandrakes, herbal potions and magical creatures. Great to see the Ripley Scroll again since the magic exhibition at the Bodlein Library, so huge...once again loved the decor, lights made out of cauldrons, gothic doorways, wall moving images matching my corset and winking at you, potions making. Waterhouse painting on display which is always a pleasure, bit on charms, alchemy, astronomy, divination and of course on Harry Potter (scripts, various covers, but mostly influences). So more a show on history of magic that Harry Potter as such which was what i had hope. A lovely mix and a great way to see in one places bits from Bostcastle witchcraft museums and various libraries, shame I had to do it in a bit of a rush to catch Tiger Lillies second set so i guess I might have to revisit and the shops....so many temptations .

Late at the Library: History of Magic (with Tiger Lillies) [Nov. 3rd, 2017|08:56 pm]
Friday 27 October: Late at the Library: History of Magic (with Tiger Lillies)

Fantastic event, not too busy (despite being sold out) and the Tiger Lillies did two long sets. My first gig at the BL and it really worked well. The only downside is that the evening/event was not long enough night to see the gig, exhibition, chats to friends or do the talks. Did the exhibition a bit faster than planned between the sets and i will hopefully return and the Tiger Lillies were signing and chatting at the end . Always so much fun to see them.
