spring has sprung!

How is it March already? It feel like I've barely finished digesting my Christmas dinner but the sun is already peeking out and festival planning is well underway. I've not mentioned it yet but I deferred university in January to focus on other projects, so until September when I start again I'm no longer a student! Instead I have been working at the Clifton Observatory and doing work experience at Bristol24/7 which has been keeping me super busy.

Today I've had a spring clean of my Dulcie's Feathers Facebook page and started planning and creating this summer's collection which will be up on ASOS Marketplace by April. It's inspired by Gods and Godesses so expect more embellishment than ever before with exotic trims from all around the world, bright jewel tones, lots of different textures and of course lashings of sequins.


I stumbled across these lovely photos taken by one of my customers last summer, this was one of my largest creations to date and these pictures are making me dream of fields even more...! So far I've got Love Saves the Day, Meadows in the Mountains, Lovebox, Secret Garden Party & Shambala in my festival calendar, have any of you got summer plans?

Glitzpiration : glitter makeup looks


So as you know may know glitter is actually my job, or at least the act of putting it on other people's faces is! Although I've been doing it for quite a while I still love new inspiration. These are some slightly more subtle looks (subtle for me anyway!) that you could wear on any night out, I love holographic/irridescent glitter to add subtle shimmering colour and the delicate star sequins are beautiful. There are some seriously great metallic eyebrow looks on here too, I got the fantasy eyeliner from Lush for Christmas, it's an excellent way to get a bit of metallic into your look without glitter.

Visit our page on Facebook, Shiny Happy People, to see where we'll be glittering next!

These pictures are from early last year when I loaned a headdress to stylist Kyran Low and I've only just come across them, I love the make-up! What do you think? Have a look at more feathery goodness and collaborations here.

A day out : Bristol Zoo

On Saturday I got treated to the best ever hangover cure; a lovely day out at the zoo! My friend Rosie (above) volunteers there with the birds so she was our guide. Aside from playing around with all of the interactive displays (apparently they were for children whaaaat) and getting a bit freaked out by the seals, we saw loads of great things like my new favourite animal which is the Capybara. Apparently they are actually the world's largest rodents! You can see two of them having and swim and a cuddle below.

shambala '14

Dulcie Feather, feather headdress, festival style, actionwear, Shambala
This year was my first at Shambala. I was lucky enough to be able to go there as part of The Fashpack; a wonderful face painting collective who host a range of independent festival wear designers within their amazing immersive tent. This year the theme for their space was 'glitter and twisted', circus freak meets disco chic. They had interactive games and best of all a 'secret snoozalum' in a bell tent out the back where you could go for a little rest! It was great to spend a weekend with a load of likeminded ladies swapping wares and meeting lovely customers.

Though I didn't get to see much of it in the daytime, the festival itself was so lovely, already one of my firm favourites. With a capacity of 10,000 I personally think it's the perfect size; intimate but big enough you'll discover new things everyday. The crowd is diverse, there's definitely a big family contingency which I always think makes for a better overall vibe... but thats not to say that there was no nightlife! The music venues are varied and cute and apparently theres a wide range of workshops and stuff going on in the daytime. My highlights were the little things like going on the chairoplane, hiding in the woods after closing time and watching the sunrise by the fire.
