We sponsored the Most Joyful category of the competition. And sure enough, after a week of the most rubbish weather you can imagine, the day was stunning!! The World of Wearable Arts aka WOW is on for the next two weeks but it is a coincidence that this fun event has happened at the same time as the Council made them move it from the original date which was not. It's a happy coincidence though.
Some gorgeoous goldfish, Thing 1 and Thing 2.
Some of Capital Steampunk, with Mrs Hudson (The Younger) in her wonderfully patriotic gown.
Two gorgeous "ladies" (not really ladies!) visiting the Colonies.
Wally, or Waldo, who spent the whole parade hiding behind people. She was so sweet!
A couple of fab costumes originally made as WOW entries
A Steampunker in a Blueprint jacket. So clever!
I loved this entry - Mum, Dad and their son playing Nemo. The anenomes are just throw rugs safety pinned on and a bunch of skinny ballons around their necks. SO CLEVER!! And so lovely to see a family together.
Another shot of Nemo as he is so gorgeous!
Me presenting a prize to these two clever sculptures.
Cavalcading along the waterfront!
Cavalcading. My gosh it was one beautiful day!
