Our Great Gatsby Party
My cousin had a Great Gatsby dress up party for her 26th Birthday at The Soda Factory. It was a great night. I put some extensions in my hair and then rolled it up to create a bob. It actually suited me short. I did my makeup differently as well. I went for a softer, prettier look and only applied eyeliner to the tops of my eyes and flicked the corners of my eyes with the eyeliner. I also went for a soft pink for lips and cheeks.
I did my hair like Daisy from The Great Gatsby and I tried to wear similar jewellery. I am wearing my great aunt’s chocker from the same era.
I borrowed my cousins black flapper dress and I wore my pale green rose shaped earrings to soften the look.
To get my hair like this I added 2 long hair extensions to my hair (the one’s that you clip in). Then I rolled the hair under until it created a bob and I just pinned it up. My mum taught me this trick. She use to have long hair and would wear it like this a lot.
The gorgeous birthday girl Hayley Jane. Her sister Briana, also known as Ms Bluebell made her white Gatsby dress and head piece. It looked great
Hayley and Chris looking cute together.
My cousin Briana drinking the famous one of the Soda Factory’s famous cocktails – a Raspberry Ice Cream Soda. Briana designed and made her own outfit and hair piece too!
