Bee face paint: Just So Festival 2017

A brand new tribe is joining the Tribal Tournament at Just So 2017, and there’s much excitement about the costume and face paint possibilities the Bee Tribe offers. We were very tempted to jump ship from the Fish to join the Bees this year, but I think we’re set on Fish for a second year. Maybe we’ll join the buzz around the bees next year. The bee tribal head is one of the most beautiful from this year’s designs, so I was excited to create a bee face paint version (using a Snazaroo party pack and a Snazaroo set of brushes).…

Here she’s got a brilliant no-sew fox costume, so you can swap your needle and thread for a hot glue gun and you’re good to shimmy on down to the Tribal Tournament.

Fox face paint: Just So Festival 2017

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…
