Beards and dresses, feathers and mud... our festival adventure so far

Puckoo HQ is in full festival swing right now, at the fancy dress mecca that is Shambala, which sold out in record time this year. The organisers have had us drooling (stylish drool of course), promising their best ever site. We can't wait for all the colours and sounds from the likes of Crazy P's sweet disco house, Jazzsteppa, the gorgeous Andreya Triana and then some!

What makes it extra exciting is that we will be there with the rest of the Fash Pack, 'a glitterati hullabaloo of inventive creative rebellion'. This year our fellow festival fun makers (largely made up of Bristol lovelies) are DuttyMerrimaking, Working Clasp,  Magpie Chique, Elsie Belle, Check My Box,  Daisy Thomas and Jessica May

We're still milling over which Shambala flash mob dress theme we will be representing.... Pirate Couture or Puckoo Gangster Crew? It's a tough decision, both of them are badass, both can incorporate big hair and shiny stuff! 

Our penchant for men in drag will be satisfied, when Shambarber's drag queen competition takes place at 10pm on Sunday! Beards+dresses=heaven!

Anyways, the road trip to the festie had us looking back over what other festival treats we'd experienced this season...

We've stretched our stretchy lycras to the max crowd surfing and rave yoga-ing at Eastern Electric's Electric City...

We even managed to get a snug with Electric City mumma Helen.

Charm bras and feathers FTW!

and finally, we've partied on down with the mega lush alcoholic dream vessle, the Cocktail Caravan at Boomtown! xxxxx

Eastern Electrics, Electric City, Morning Rave Yoga and Glasto flashbacks

We've been mad busy on the road with our friends of Boo Dior for festival season. As soon as the summer starts, our sequins and shiny lycras are screaming out to have it large! 

Right now you'll find us wrapping off in the vibrant Electric City at Eastern Electrics (2-4 August) , where we are told they had stock piled a whole 6kg of glitter. They definitely share our belief in the power of the Glitter Army! We've been keeping fit with the magic of dance at Morning Rave Yoga, getting down in the EE Roller Disco and pouring our little hearts out at kareoke (Little Mermaid, obvs).

We thought we'd give you a few pics of our set up in the House of Boo-Dior at Glastonbury, so that you have an idea of what the Eastern Electric goers have been sampling there (though they haven't been quite so lucky with the Great British weather)...

Join us! The Glittermasque team prep all new Glitter Army recruits with face bling and quiffs worth fighting for.

Sort Your Self Out Love, Fuud, Makers London, Skin-T and It's Your Booth also make up the big famalam of lurve!

Puckoo garms on the raaailll! Glastonbury had us catching up with the likes of the gorgeous MC Gaff E and The Beast.

So many lush things to look at!

Hot D'Jour's Hollie G keeps it real in a Puckoo black, tiger and mesh panelled bodysuit and our fave feather shoulder pads.

 Next to her sick sounds, the outfit above was Hollie's weapon of choice when performing later in the Pussy Parlure, the same tent that was graced by the legend that is Charles Bradley. Have you heard of him yet? If you haven't you should go look him up right now! All I'm saying is true soul music did not die with James Brown... Anyways, Hollie also performed for lucky Eastern Electricers over the weekend and has a few new (and BIG) tracks under way, so no doubt you will be hearing more on her soon!

We've still got tons to share with you about what we've been up to over the last few months and so much more to come, so stay tuned! xx
