I did my usual event visit on sunday morning, which for me is always the best time for shopping, most of the US folks are still asleep, and i can run about big events almost lagless, and oh boy i had two of them to see this weekend. EPOCH Legend and Spring Fashion 2012: Mix+Mesh and i also had to stop by at The Dressing Room.
I will start with EPOCH Legend, and what i can say is wow it involves 3 locations, a lot of amazing creators, a lot of imagination and 3 separate themes i fell in love with totally, and i probably would have ended up buying everything if i could. You can also follow their blog, shopping guide, or their Flirck group, or visit the Creator´s Café.
I did do some shopping from all 3 locations and will try to post to each of the 3 themes, so here it is the first one, clowning:
I have to confess one thing, I hate clowns, they terrify me, i get shivers and cold sweats when i see one, a picture of one, and sometimes a simple red nose.
Everything about clowns screams to me sleazy and creepy, and i used this pretty Love Soul makeup and hair/hat because it´s more of a Pierrot mood then actually more so clownish, i still could not get myself to take a full frontal pic of it, shame on me and my phobias.
I also got this lovely tent by Five minutes after a store i had never heard about but ran to as soon as i saw the tent in the shopping guide even before the event was open, and loved.

The second big event i visit was Mix+Mesh, and i was amazingly disappointed by it, extremely high prices, lack of demos for mesh items (really? how does someone buy mesh without even trying it?), i also saw a lot of work done from templates about (that is not always a bad thing tho, some original work can come from templates), There was some good work there, i won´t deny it but overall it was a very big disappointment and i ended up not actually buying anything.
And finally The Dressing Room, god i love it so much and this time i love it even more, after a little controversy later in the week about their invited guest the organizers showed why i love this venue, fast response and admirable principles, so a big hurrah for The Dressing Room.
