The Costume Cave in Wellington, New Zealand is a bit of an institution. It’s been the go to place for all my dress ups since I arrived in Wellington in 2003 and I’ve always loved getting lost in the racks there. Through my photobooth business I’ve come to know the owner Kate and I can’t imagine a person more suited to running a costume store! She’s fun and funny, and just the right amount of crazy. Her staff are a bunch of nutters too but in the best way possible, who else would you trust to pick out an over the top getup for the yearly Rugby Sevens?!

Wow, what a busy few weeks I’ve had here and I almost forgot to post some shots of my images in the newspaper! Thanks to the Wellington Circus Trust for getting the article in there, Tanya (The Magenta Diamond), Rowan and others for modelling and the Dominion Post.

A couple of weeks ago I had the great fortune to follow Fuse Circus and The Circus Trust’s float around the Cuba St Carnival.  They had customised a crane in to a Steam Punk machine, complete with pretty girls hanging from a hoop! The parade was great and although I was complaining about sore feet afterwards I had nothing on the performers who put on a great show the whole way!
