Today I went to the Sydney Rock'n'Roll Alternative Markets for the second time ever, with my best friend Bonnie and fiance Adam. Just like last time I went, I had a super great time, bought lots of great stuff and met lots of cool and creative people!
My favourite stall as always is Cutie Pop Creations / Sutairus shared stall.
Bonnie and I with Katie and Tamara, owners of Sutairu and CPC respectively.
Not only are these two girls super sweet, but their designs and creations are to die for. Sutairu specialises in 'ethereal with an edge', with products ranging from flower crowns to slime covered hoop earrings. Check out their instagram!
CPC on the other hand delivers pure tooth ache kawaii in the form of resin necklaces, earrings and rings with yummy sprinkles and/or glitter inside! Tamara also has a tonne of adorable bows, cufflinks and coinpurses to sink your sweet tooth into. Check out her webstore! Tamara is always super sweet and all of the items I own from her are super durable as well as gosh darn cute to boot.
I love you Cutie Pop Creations!!
After catching up with Katie and Tamara (and nipping some goodies for ourselves) we checked out what the other stalls had on offer. As to be expected there was a lot of vintage clothing, rockabilly style goods such as 50's style dresses and cardigans, and even comic books. I was not, however, expecting to find a nail artist!
After chatting for a while about everything from Japanese nail salons we wish we could visit to My Melody and Little Twin Stars I decided I wanted two little cupcakes painted on my ring fingers. Aubrey was super fun to talk to and she's extremely talented!
My new (and old) CPC rings and my fresh 'Quirkified' nails!
I was totally over the moon at this point. Sparkles, cupcakes, nail art! How could this possibly get any better for me?
A make up stall full of My Little Pony dolls and Cupies. That's how.
I wanted to speak to Emma-lee of The Makeup Wardrobe practically the entire day, but every time I passed her stall she was in the middle of doing someones makeup! I finally got to chat to her just before I left the markets and it was worth the wait. We had a lot in common and I'm looking forward to visiting her store/studio in Newtown! She told me it 'looked like Harajuku had thrown up on it' and I was sold from thereon in.
The Makeup Wardrobe stocks Lime Crime products, as well as various make up and costume goods including eye contacts, hair dye and fake blood.
All in all it was a super fun day and the stalls had something for everyone- band posters, clothing, art, shoes, food, books, hair products... the list goes on! If you live in Sydney I would definitely recommend attending these markets even if you don't think you're that into alternative or rockabilly things. Entry is only $5 and you're bound to find something super cool- and one of a kind!
I'm happily exhausted now so I'm gonna get into bed with a movie. Probably a 90's cheerleader one knowing me.
PS, have you guys been keeping up with the winter olympics? I suddenly care about them because there's a super cute snowboarder called Yuki Kadono there. He's so smiley!
