North Milky Shake With Cranberry and Plum Garnish

>>  5/02/2011

I am participating in Mocktails and Coolers Event (1st May - 31st May, 2011) hosting by Nayna. The Event is aiming to cool the sunmmer heat by sharing refreshing drinks.

Considering the weather we have today (the 2nd of May), there is a severe snowstorm here in Sakhalin, I have invented a North Milky Shake with cranberries. It is rich with vitamins!

Milkyshake garnish:

Eco-Fashion Show. Flowers of Sakhalin 2011. Space Amazon Lady

>>  5/01/2011

Green EcoFashion Show was a perfomance during the "Flowers of Sakhalin 2011". Florists and  Ikebana masters presented their dresses made from natural materials as flowers, leaves, plants, wood and food.

My eco project was a Space Amazon Lady. The costume was made out of birch branches, north bamboo (Polygonum sachalinense) and some grains. The Amazon model was supposed to be nearly undressed, so body art made the complete look.

The design on the shield is inspired by the circles on fields.
Materials for the shield: coffee beans, shell bean, orange skin. I also used orange skin for crown brooch
