I put on my best "Street Strolling Clothes"(as opposed to "Street Walking Clothes", which are completely different). You can only wear the t-shirt when it's warm enough not to have to wear a jacket or sweater over it so you can see back and front.
Corset T-shirt - Carousel Ink
Big Pants - thrifted
leather cuffs - Fairies Pyjamas, Housing Works thrift store
my new favourite shoes - purchased at From Mars
Three blocks of Dundas Street were closed to traffic so that pedestrians and cyclists could take over the street. There were games to be played, food to be enjoyed, and cool stuff to be purchased.
Dear Thelma, Love Louise was the name of this adorable little trailer that was full of fun, inexpensive stuff. I got three items, including a necklace and a small pin for a total of $6. That's my kind of shopping!
Patti-Ann Sim-Fenech is the woman behind Dear Thelma, Love Louise. She makes the stuff, and sells it out of her vintage "Glamper" (glamourized camper). You can read more about her and her unconventional thrift store on wheels on her blog.
Across the street was a little booth full of the coolest little felt creatures called Uzzles, made by Kim Stark. I wanted all of them, but settled on a little mouse/dog superhero critter complete with eye mask and cape. You can see more of Kim's creatures on her blog.
You could play Scrabble on the street
some people played with hula hoops and some preferred disco dancing on stilts
I loved these little paper mache "shakers", made by Phylis U'Ren. The animals are cute, but the women's heads are amazing (especially the fab hair styles). You can see more of her sculptures on her Facebook page.
I had a chat with this lovely young lady and her tiny canine companion, Mika
Kayla Gibbens, the sassy redhead in the photo above, made my pixel hair bow (and the one that Melanie won). She finally has a Facebook Page for her business.
Kayla's pixelated version of Audrey II from Little Shop of Horrors.
The woman in the elephant print dress above is Amy Kovac, who created the black and white animal-focussed art on the table in front of her. She had made some of her drawings into necklaces and pins, and I purchased a fox necklace as a gift for a friend. You can see more of her cool art here.
My next post features photos from the night-time antics during Nuit Blanche....stay tuned!
