Summer is getting a massive send-off this weekend with not one but at least three major festivals taking place:
Psyfari Jamboree in the ACT - final round tix available here
Secret Garden in Sydney’s South West (it’s sold out – we hope you’ve got yours!)
… & newcomer Odyssey – at a super secret location 1 ½ hours outside of Sydney – final release tickets available here
Still haven’t got your costumes sorted? Fancy That! Costumes in Crows Nest Sydney is here to crush that last minute panic! AND we've compiled a summary of some of the hottest festival trends for Summer 2017/18. Drink it up below!
1. Unlease Your Inner Animal
A festival is a great opportunity to let loose & become that wild, untamed version of yourself in a safe & welcoming space. You’ve got to love the raw, primal sexiness about dressing up as a feisty, unhuman creature!
Hybrid fox/human, stealth leopard, majestic elephant, centaur man-beast, colourful pink flamingo, lion king of the jungle – you’ve got a lot of options here. Mix & match accessories to blend in by standing out with your own animalistic style.
Don’t forget the make-up – we stock the quality Australian-formulated Global brand (vegan with no chemical nasties). Get the goods from us then bone up on You-Tube with a myriad of simple tutorials to creative impactful looks.

Is it just us or are you also getting a vibe that 2018 is speeding us even faster towards the future? Everybody’s talking about how to save their jobs from the robot invasion – it feels like we went from an I-phone 7 to 10 in the space of 12 months - & Elon Musk just jettisoned a Tesla into outer space for crying out loud!
We say just roll with it & embrace the future in costumes & accessories with an edgy, futuristic flavour. It’s way more than green body paint & silver head boppers (although we can help you with those too!)
We’re loving the glam rock / space crossover look which mixes metallic elements with wild shots of colour – think silver hooded capes with shocking spiky neon wigs – or silver disco tinsel wigs & reflective wrap glasses, with rainbow socks, shirts & booty shorts. Add the finishing touches with metallic body paint & metallic tattoos or “third eye” style crystal gems.
Tune in to some further space-age inspiration here.
After all that intergalactic tripping, you may prefer to head back down & reconnect with the spirituality & beauty of Earth. There’s something really connecting about a great festival, so you know a tribal theme makes sense.
There can be crossover here with “Animal”, however more tribal elements include items such as our authentic American Indian headdresses – real leather, hand-beaded & sourced ethically from Indonesia. Chest plates or Voodoo skull & bone necklaces make awesome accessories.
Mix it up with tribal or metallic tattoos, face & body paints, leather look wrist guards, Viking style drinking horns – you can even add some “Mad Max” touches like mesh shirts, aviator goggles, & your own combat boots.
