Today is all about the Fox tribe at the Just So Festival’s Tribal Tournament, with my fox face paint design (based on this year’s beautiful tribal head), quickly followed by Victoria’s super-easy no-sew fox costume. The boys in our family were foxes a couple of years ago, and their costumes were such a laugh – I love the smart Fantastic Mr Fox look, but this year’s tribal head is a lot more folksy – I think you could have a lot of fun coming up with a fox that’s a little more boho. To create this folksy fox face paint design I… View Post

Victoria’s fantastically easy lion headdress is the perfect partner for my lion face paint design for the Just So Tribal Tournament 2017. Over to Victoria now to share the instructions… Hear me roar! The kings of the jungle are ready to prowl and pounce in their golden fur and wild manes. Lion costumes are all about texture so make use of any scraps of fabrics – velvets, wools etc – it doesn’t matter if they don’t match as it’s the hair/ mane effect that will instantly roar lion! For this version you will need a stretchy hair band or circle of elastic… View Post

We’re over halfway through our Just So Festival extravaganza of costume and face paint ideas for this year’s magnificent Tribal Tournament.

Fill in the rest of the face… View Post

Combine my stag face paint design with this beautiful and easy stag costume idea from Victoria to join the Stags at this year’s Just So Festival. Over to her to share the instructions… Prancing through the forest the upper crust stags gallop by in their finery. Tweed waistcoats, bustles, wild branches from the forest floor and a flourish of flowers. If fancy isn’t your thing channel Game of Thrones with big fake fur collars and wild branches in your hair! This is a baby and toddler friendly costume as there are no pointy bits but could easily be adapted to suit the older… View Post

Next up in our week of costume and face paint ideas for the Tribal Tournament at Just So 2017, it’s those proud and mighty stags. We will definitely be stags one year as you always see some awesome costumes around the festival. Here’s my interpretation of the design of this year’s Tribal head as a face paint idea… I really enjoyed this one – it’s simple and decorative. Here’s how I did it, using a party set of Snazaroo face paints, and a set of Snazaroo brushes: Use a sponge or brush to apply white face paint over the nose and up to the forehead.… View Post
