Dolly Con - Bunnies, Deers and Bows! Oh My!

I had a fabulous night with the girls of Dolly Con on Friday eve!
The night started off with a huge down-poor of rain- but it soon cleared up and we certainly had lots of fun in the beautiful Dolly Dare shop on Commercial Road, London!

This was my little stall in the shop- the tables were covered in lovely pink candy stripe (much like my gift bags!) and bows too! The shop was so candy cute with pink lace and roses everywhere- plus full of beautiful french-style sexy mannequins to match their vintage style pin-up dresses and eclectic range of shoes....heaven!

Some new 'Wonderland' mirror necklaces!

We had a constant supply of Dolly Dare sweeties to keep us going! Yum!

Naz who manages/runs Dolly Dare (top left) bought and modelled some Roxie Sweetheart jewellery!
She bought a few

things including the new
Baby Deer Brooch!!

Stay tuned for Dolly Con 2!!

My Loveable Pony...

Everyone remembers My Little Ponies right?! Well, if you were born in the golden age of Hasbro toys then you will most definitely have had one, and I loved them! I was definitely more into ponies and other animal toys than dolls and Barbies...

80's toys often heavily inspire my illustrations too ❤_

Well today I came across some new versions of My Little Pony and I was more than delighted to find 'Pinkie Pie' - one of the Fashion range of ponies... I will always have a place in my heart for the original 80's ones but I have to say these are very cute and also very Japanese inspired too.

I also came across this cute pony designed by Tokidoki for The My Little Pony Project which is an international collection of 18” MY LITTLE PONY figures designed by popular culture’s influential people and organizations. The ponies were auctioned off for charity! Oh how I would love to get hold of one of these to customize!!!

Plus if you're not into anything too cutesy...

Phew! Hyper Japan last weekend was amazing and very very busy!! It is quite amazing how quickly they have grown from only their first event last year (about a quarter of the size!).

Check out some of the photos from over the weekend...

And have a look at my amazing hair-do and hair accessories by my new friend Felicity from Now, Voyager! You can check out their website here.

My model from last year Rebecca Atherton was at Hyper Japan this year as the fashion show judge- she came to my stall to say hello!

Plus lots of new items have just been added to the online boutique- check out What's New!
