Just because I act like a kid, doesn’t mean I can’t grown-up when I need to. Lucky Charms for breakfast and still getting things done. Boom!

Stumbled upon another amazingly talented artist during my internet integration. Sara Lowes has made costumes and headdresses for the whimsically inclined.

Now I don’t know Sara personally, so I’ll let her About Page fill you in:

Animalesque is a unique and independent costume brand for all those wild little creatures who love to dress up! But also for grown-up kids with an eye for something special…

Founded by artist and textile designer, Sara Lowes, Animalesque inspires creative play and helps to bring narrative to life through costume and props, capturing a sense of wonder and reconnecting children with their innate gift, and fundamental need, to imagine.

Animalesque combines Sara’s expertise in textile design Рillustration, screen-print and embroidery Рwith her experience as a children’s storyteller, to produce playful costumes and accessories, rich with colour, texture and character.

 

Using a diverse range of fabrics, often recycled or collected on various travels, Sara lovingly produces her collectible creations in her London studio.

It's all about ears and feathers in my studio today ūüėÄ

When I was poking around her website, I notice she also does COMMISSIONED DESIGNS!!

I know where I’m going for my fairytale jacket!

Something Unfortunate Is Coming…

Can’t. Express. Excitement!!

This is was not actually made by Netflix, but by an, as of yet unnamed, fan. Does that mean the whole thing is fake? No!

“The Netflix series will be produced¬†in association with Paramount Television. Paramount Pictures distributed 2004 film ‚ÄúLemony Snicket‚Äôs A Series of Unfortunate Events‚ÄĚ starring Jim Carrey, which grossed $118.6 million on an estimated production budget of $140 million, according to Box Office Mojo.” –¬†variety.com

All we can hope is Netflix will take a cue from this beautiful, and well thought out, teaser.

Note from Snivels: I guess we’ll have to stop using “unfortunate” when promoting the book…

Spend Your Summer Weekend Reading With The Jolley-Rogers!

The Pirates Next Door Starring the Jolley-Rogers

The Pirates Next Door

Came across this fun-filled tale while spending my summer days in the children’s section of my local library. This energetic tale about accepting people’s differences will bring a breath of fresh air to your reading time this weekend.

The Crew

Meet the Jolley-Rogers Рa pirate family who is moving to Dull-on-Sea, a quiet seaside town, while they fix up their ship. This unusual family soon has the whole neighborhood gossiping. Defying the grown-ups, Matilda becomes friends with young pirate Jim Lad.

Page from Pirates

When the Jolley-Rogers return to sea, the town realizes that they were wrong to assume the worst when it is discovered that the pirates have buried treasure in everyone’s yard. The neighbors are thrilled, but Matilda is sad to have lost her new friend, until she discovers her own treasure ‚ÄĒ a pen pal!

See Jonny Duddle’s website for tons of Pirate fun!

Find the book on GoodReads and Amazon.
