Above is Piroska looking divine at the Thornbury Ballroom last night.

Carnival of Mysteries

Oh yes we are booked for Thursday night to be swept up by a Carnival of Mysteries. Finucane & Smith, creators of Gotharama and the Burlesque Hour are story tellers and entertainers gruesome and wild. What a big fan I am, Sam. The Melbourne Festival, get your tickets. I noticed a warning: Nudity, Adult Concepts, Smoking & Smoke Effects, Strobe Effects, Loud Music, Yeay!

Miz Marawa


Oh the devine, the glamorous, the daring, it's Marawa and she's a comin' back to my Melbourne. Yeaaaay! Let's all dance and rollerskate in the streets.

The office

I went to visit my dad's office, he is an illustrator and as a child this was the most exciting sight, a whole Derwent pencil display full of coloured pencils. Full!

Mother Mary


Sophie AKA Piroska and I went to a party on Friday night. John's house party, the dress code was Forgive me Father for I have sinned. Well Sophie spends weeks crafting costumes and this one involved a molded light up heart and a halo with LED lights inside origami stars. HALO!

Conservatory



I think I've said this before but this is my favorite place to visit. Fitzroy Gardens Melbourne. I love conservatories, so muggy and romantic. Yuh. X A

Nan Goldin and Cookie Mueller






I rode on the back of his motorcycle down the freeway in the brilliant sunshine to see the Up Close exhibition at Heidi. As much as I liked all the photographic stuff, the Nan Goldin slide show had me by the throat. I love her photos especially when they feature the late Cookie Mueller (the underground actress, think John Waters Pink Flamingos, and writer). That's her directly above and at the top. XX A

Lil' Cramps Style

I found this leotard, which is like six year old child size, in Savers
yesterday. It's inspiration for life. Reminds me of Poison Ivy of the
Cramps.
