Moomin Mania at Glastonbury

This is just a short post whilst I’ve arrived at glastonbury festival about the outfits I’ll be wearing over the week. It’s always such a pain to choose what to wear for a festival. You want to look relatively nice but you also don’t want to take anything you don’t mind not bringing back… I personally hate wearing something other people have, so I learnt to sew a year ago and finally made use of my spare finlayson bedding. I bought my first piece of bedding 4-5 years ago when I had a single bed, but then I had no use for it when I got a double. Tomm’s mum offered to cut it in half and use one piece with extra fabric to make it fit my double so I was thrilled!

For Glastonbury I decided to make two halter neck tops and brought along my two dresses which most of my moomin friends have already seen. Remember that I’ve been traveling for about 6 hours and I’ve had to pack everything so my dresses aren’t in their best condition, they’re usually crease-free!

Moomin Collection Photoshoot

I get asked ALL the time for pictures of my collection but because it’s scattered across the house (and other people’s houses, eek) it’s just not possible. Last year I was approached by a journalist who wanted to write an article on my love for Moomins for a magazine in the UK. It was published in Pick Me Up on December 13th and the reason I haven’t wrote about it here is because I was awaiting the photographer to send me the pictures, but I’ve finally got them! I tried to gather as much of my collection as possible.
