Bestival - What I Wore

By Gem - 11:00:00

This is my final post about Bestival, I promise! I think I'm having post Bestival blues and need to accept that I'm not going to see any bands tonight and there is no more easy access to wine and Wagamama. I was a totally rubbish blogger and hardly took any outfit photos (did the same at Reading and Paris) but here are the few that I took.


Dress: Geroge via Charity shop
Stag cover up(thought it fitted in with the wildlife theme): Primark
Necklace: New Look
Shoes: High top trainers by Converse


There was a wildlife fancy dress theme on Saturday and I must admit that I didn't put as much effort in as some and had a butterfly hairband, butterfly nails and butterfly face paint and added a wig in the evening. I was going for a woodland nymph/Katy Perry kind of look...

 Dress: Rare c/o Not on the High Street
Necklace: New Look
Hairband: Crown and Glory


I was provided with a great face paint kit and wig by Jokers' Masquerade fancy dress to take with me to Bestival.
I wanted to look like Katy Perry at the end of her Wide Awake video so I chose a purple wig. It was a really good match and had black and purple in it just like Katy's hair in the video. The wig was of a really good quality and was styled with a fringe and curls. It didn't require any styling and was very comfortable to wear. It looked pretty natural for a bright purple wig! It stayed on all night thanks to a secure net underneath the hair. I would recommend this wig, £11.99 is great value for a wig of this quality and it would also make a good witches wig (Halloween is only 32 days away!)


Getting creative with the face paint.


Me in the lovely wig.

The face paint went down really well in camp. It came with a set of brushes, sponges and a booklet showing you how to create lots of looks. It would easily be enough face paint to cater for a whole party of people and had every colour you would need to create your desired look. This kit would be great for a kids party or hen night. I loved the pots of glitter and wore these most days at the festival. I think the Snazaroo sets are great quality and good value, to buy all these colours and brushes separately would really set you back.



Jazzing up my converse.


Look at these guys, they really went all out with the Wildlife theme!


Writing this post has made me realise that Summer is finally over, no more festivals or holidays for me. I'm feeling rather sorry for myself!
