So, you’re going to Playground Weekender.
You’ve got your tickets, you’ve got your tepee, now what are you going to wear?!
Well, that depends entirely on YOU!
You could leave it to the last minute and:
– fret about whether you’ve picked the right thing to wear or not in such a hurry
– worry that you’ve been left with the less than the best to choose from
You can plan ahead, leave it in the bag and BUST it out exactly when you need it.
That’s being prepared!
And leaves your mind free to sort out other last minute festival details, should they arise.
If you’re concerned about what you pick and what other people might think, then prepare your outfits with some friends, and create your own tribe.
Nobody else will be worrying about you, they’ll be too busy trying to fit in with you anyway!
Here’s some tips
Travel light. Carry your party purse – (cash and drink tickets) and enjoy the experiences available at the festival.
For a small fee, get to the Powder Room, and do the essential beauty touch up in the no fuss DIY garden themed beauty parlour and enjoy the benefits of all the beauty essentials at your finger tips. Get in early as space is limited, and make an appointment for your beauty experience, or book a package deal. if you can’t get the time slot you want, then pick another one, don’t miss out on the experience.
I’d get kitted up first, and then head to my pre booked appointment to finalise my costumed look.
There will be hairstyling tools- straighteners, blow dryers, and a range of products to choose from.
Skin care basics will be provided, wipes and cosmetics.
The Powder Room at Playground is fully sustainable from power to products, it’s all about Australian, certified organic and vegan products.
If you prefer a little something extra, you can get your look and make up styled by professionals with the gorgeous Inika Cosmetics range. Choose from the menu!
Boys and girls.
Pop in with your costume and get styled up by professionals!
Have your look get made complete with a professional eye, and treasure your festival photos forever!
So, you’ve been partying all day, the dust and the face paint from the morning have rubbed off or smudged, no problem!
Zip into to powder room and have yourself looking refreshed and revitalized in no time. Ready for your Evening date.
Gorgeous fun for all girls and boys.
Spoil yourself. Looking awesome was never so much fun!
And remember, it’s not a competition.
It’s all about being self expressed.
It’s not about judgment, and keeping yourself suppressed, it’s all about appreciation, and the joy of life.
Get your body moving! Give yourself daggy dancing contests until you really start to get into the groove. Then, once you’re all warmed up, you can start showing off your moves.
Free yourself up from the constraints of the everyday, and really get that feeling of freedom, and play.
Now, what would I take to a festival like Playground Weekender?
History tells us that the days are likely to be hot, luckily there is a river nearby and lots of water fun to be had. So, pack your bathers – or swimmers or togs, what ever you call them, and pick an outfit you can wear around it.
You’ll need gear that is light and easy to dance in.
You’ll need pockets or a belt bag to keep your party purse in.
You may need a cloak, or jacket or cape, or shrug, to wrap around your shoulders in case, for what ever reason, the weather should become cool.
Shrugs are great, they can keep you warm, or double as shade for your shoulders if the sun gets bright. If it gets really hot, you can wet them and walk around in coolness as the wet evaporates in the breeze as you move.
And take a hat! A big brim can be such a relief when the sun beams down.
I always take 2 pairs of socks just incase the weather gets funny, it’s always comforting to snuggle your feet in cosy warmness. It’s a simple luxury, and a small amount of luggage to carry even should it not be needed in the end. Should the need arise, and comfy feet are important to you, then you’ll be glad you came prepared with your closed toed shoes to help keep your sockies dry.
I’m going to take a pocket poncho also, just in case.
I like to put this on at twilight when the sun goes down and the light disappears slowly into the ether, to moisturise, and to keep an air of the tropics about me.
It’s a magical time twilight.
When day transforms into night, another world appears.
Soap or cleanser.
Moisturiser, though I’ve been assured, this can be found at the Powder Room too should you forget some.
Sunscreen – also available at the Powder Room, organic of course!
Don’t forget Tooth brush and toothpaste
Towel: for poolside action
Teatree oil: because I’m a hippy. I use it for cuts, scrapes or splinters, or itchy mossie bites.
Lavender oil: I put a tiny little drop on my pillow and sleep beautifully.
Light and breezy clothing you can chuck on over your bathers.
Sandals, or thongs.
