Crazy parties and Tie Dye

So for the last little while I've been a little crazy about tie dye. This actually started when my best friend phoned me up and told me I had to come over and help her make 9 tie dye shirts and a pair of leggings. I wasn't really sure why she needed me, but I went anyways. Turned out that she had met a band at Sonic Boom, which is a big music festival put on in our city, and when they saw her tie dye shirt, they asked if she would make them some in return for 3 free tickets to their secret concert which would be held later in September. Since it was my birthday soon, and I was the only one other than her that would be 18, she invited me to come along. So we made a heck of a lot of tie dye...

 These are my tie dye nails. I did them using water marbling (just google it, there are tons of tutorials) Really easy, really quick and it looks so pretty. Make sure to use a base coat though. because the top swirly bit it quite a thin layer. This was my testing hand, I later took it all off and started again.
 This is what my nails look like now, the "finished product" I used a sparkly blue, a sparkly plum and a magenta.

Now on to the tie dye...
 Rachels Leggings :) They turned out really crazy because we hung them up and the colours all melded together. Still very cool though.

Hollerado, the band that asked us to make the tie dye shirts. They gave us some band tshirts too which was super nice of them :)
 Wildlife and Young Rival, the two opening bands for Hollerado. I really liked them both tpoo, they all put on a fabulous show.

One thing I loved about that night was how small the venue was. It was about the size of my kitchen plus my living room and had a stage and a bar crammed into there. Made for a really squishy but totally fun night.
