Selling the regulation Glasto uniform of fairy wings and tutu (and that's just the boys!)
Classic Glasto couple selling colourful Indian clothes
Day wear at Glastonbury.
First day: Mud. Kate Nash. Mud. They say Amy Winehouse has an oxygen tent ready in case she collapses on stage.
Discussion with the 'sista's' last night as to what to wear...the question was asked: is a leopard skin cardie and a leopard skin skirt too much? Can one over-animal?
Well it is only Thursday evening, one has to build up...myself I'm starting at the top sartorially...mad Gothic Vulcan floor length coat, pearls, little vintage cream and black lace mini dress and of course wellies. Want to buy a top hat for the full festie Victorian look but they are 150 quid. Rule of thumb for Glasto is that nothing is over the top. That kooky brightly coloured poncho you bought in Peru and have never worn? Bring it down! The lurid pink platform yeti boots? Perfect ! Toss away urban subdued style...
The logistics to this event are extraordinary...100,000 people..the size of a largish town. Troops of people milling around military style carrying their loads. Most useful accessory? A wheelbarrow.
