Expo again!






It's been a long time since I last wrote, reason being I was busy with a charity cake sale and preparing for Expo which happened last weekend. It was as usual a fun filled weekend with new games, movies and cosplay! The array of costumes were so impressive, they must have spent hours to produce each of those outfits!

My new designs which were inspired by Alice in Wonderland were completed end of last week. The range includes mini teacups with hot chocolate and cream, rabbit cupcakes with pretty bows, 'Eat Me' cookies and 'Drink Me' glitter bottles. These pendants are all presented as necklaces apart from a rabbit and cream ring. I have still to upload these new designs onto my website, I wanted to see what the reaction was at Expo first and it was definitely much better than I had anticipated! All the girls (a few guys as well!) seemed to love my new designs and they gave me loads of praise and encouragement! The most popular were the teacups and the rabbit cupcakes!

The down side to having the Expo on the same weekend as Halloween is that there was no chance for some sleep after the party on Saturday. We chose to dress up as zombie school children with matching skirts, ties etc. It's been a while since I've done fancy dress and I must say I thoroughly enjoyed it! I just loved the way people stare at you and then later realise that it's Halloween!
