You might have seen a few of my excited tweets... I am off to Bestival with a bunch of other fabulous bloggers thanks to Echo Falls. How amazing is that?! I am seriously SO excited. I worked out that the last festival I went to was Reading back in 2002 where I decided I couldn't cope with tents, lack of showers and terrible festival food. Or how expensive festival tickets are and that some festival tickets sell out before the line up is even announced. The fact that we are arriving to ready pitched tents filled with airbeds and sleeping bags totally won me over... that and the Wagamama Lounge. The food at Bestival is meant to be way above average and I am sure you all know by now I love nothing more than eating (except maybe buying pretty dresses). Gray didn't want to go so I am taking my regular blogger roomie Gemma as my +1. Party times!!
Bestival has a fancy dress theme each year and this years is Wildlife. I originally wanted to get one of these beauties:
But realised that if we do end up with an Indian summer (fingers crossed) I would most likely pass out with heat exhaustion... or just be a sweaty mess. Neither of which is appealing. So I have decided to wear my normal clothing and just accessorize with a few bits of animal headgear and maybe a bit of facepaint...
Custom Minnie Mouse Ears: Crown and Glory
Panda Facinator & Bear Ears Hoodie: asos
Not quite sure how I am going to be wearing the fascinator yet, it's quite annoying as an actual headpiece but oh so cute. Any other fancy dress suggestions? I am up for wearing something wildlife each day :)
As I haven't been to a festival in like forever any tips and hints would be gratefully received!! I think I have sorted out my festival wardrobe but again any help would be much appreciated, I don't wear shorts and it seems that's what most people live in for the weekend. Have you been to Bestival before? If so what really is a must see?
