1761  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Please help those who know ANYTHING about early 1970's female hippie style! on: August 12, 2010 07:17:49 PM
Hey, that fabric worked really well! And the sunglasses really do make it special. If you do get to iron your hair super-straight, it'll be totally groovy! But I have to say I'm not sure about the slip showing at the bottom. That somehow seems totally 21st century. Would a hippy girl ever wear a slip at all? Probably not. (Perhaps nothing at all, but that's more authenticity than necessary, especially if you're likely to get wet!)

omg--who can forget the afros!  My BIL wore a huge afro and his light blue leisure tuxedo to my wedding!  My hubby had on an awful brown corduroy tuxedo , and I wore a cream colored peasant dress with flowers in my hair...

Ohhh... I have a real soft spot for 70's wedding fashions. Maybe because it a period where people wore what they thought looked good, not what "Wedding Bells" magazine says you must have! Of course a lot of it was hideous, but it was real, unlike weddings today which are mostly fake and still just as hideous. I don't suppose you'd share a photo with us?

Sending a large mirror through the mail is like asking for trouble, but it was so worth it! What a lot of lovely stuff in a little package!

We have had such a fabulous time travelling, so much sunshine...

Wait a minute, almost every single day in your travel blog includes an account of a torrential storm. I seem to remember something about the water rising so high it washed your flip-flops out of the camper? Grin Being able to see the sunshine between the rainstorms is a special ability, and you're lucky to possess it!

Our Pagan Pride events are around the autumn equinox too. There's one here in Toronto, which is quite small - really not much more than a few dozen friends getting together for a day in the park. But the really big one is in Hamilton, which is a small city about 90 minutes south of here. Hundreds (thousands?) of people, a big vendors area, concerts, rituals, workshops. We always look forward to it.

I always go to the Harvest Fest, which is a fairly large Pagan festival over the (Canadian) Thanksgiving weekend in early October. It always culminates with the ritual burning of a giant Corn King effigy. Always a very magical weekend that pretty much defines Autumn for me.

What a lovely thing. I like the way they look like roses piled up on table. You may never get to see the results of having introduced 3-year olds to beautiful handmade things, but be assured that it will alter their view of the world forever!

Wow, that it really beautiful. I especially like the wirework cross. I'm sure you'll do very well at your show.

I'm not usually a jewelry guy, but I'm jumping right onto this bandwagon! I really like your claw necklace, crazydoc, and I think I'll try something like that.

Grace Slick famously said that if you remember the sixties you weren't really there, but white crocheted bikinis -- you obviously were there, Sue!  I'd totally forgotten about macram headbands and centre-parted hair, but that's absolutely dead-on. Loukr, if you do that, with the excellent caftan you found (I'd love to see your closet!), a pair of granny glasses and sandals (Indian preferred), you'll be perfect. And of course you shouldn't worry about the holes in the caftan, unless they're in really awkward places.

I trust we'll get an action shot of the final ensemble?

Vintage Austrian and Croatian goodies, Edel? Just knowing they're out there is exciting enough for me!

Any good journal pages you can share when you get back?

Hey Edel! Yes, you must get signed up before you start on the trek home. You can craft while Mollie drives! (Or the other way around if necessary.)

There has been some really creative stuff in this round. But there always is. Do we have the most fun on Craftster? I think we probably do.

I better get my questionnaire in for Round 22 before I forget.
