I love the original Wonder Woman costume and wanted one exactly like this but they were going for a minimum of ¬£500 on eBay! So I decide to make it myself ūüė≥

I kept the shop-bought one just incase, but needless to say, I didn’t need it! Here’s how I made my costume…

Crazy Peacock Lady

24/11/2015 / Invitation, Love /

For the¬†two¬†years that I spent planning our wedding, I was known as the “crazy¬†peacock lady”¬†‚ÄĒ¬†at least,¬†that’s how I reminded people of who I¬†was over the phone!!

Ocean have been asked to produce¬†a number of infographic posters which will engage and attract a wider audience. Time to Change wanted this poster to tell a story and to show the ‘path’ taken to helping tackle stigma within black and minority ethnic communities.

Sadly Roger Lloyd-Pack died of Pancreatic cancer today, at the age of 69. In his memory I thought I’d share a short story of when he came into our store, whilst I was working at Christo Print and Design. This story will make me look quite stupid ‚Äď but sometimes we have to laugh at ourselves‚Ķ
