When was the last time u dressed up, & had a crack up time? What is your alltime fave costume? Do u remember as a kid throwing on a costume then bam u were that person - batman or cowgirl or jem & the holligrams?
This is my buddy @jord_abroad & I in LA... standard antics when your buddy @swpersonal has these in the costume wardrobe. When someone says - theme - we get mega excited & the creating begins. @willhall26 this vid especially for you.
When It comes to costume events, dressing up we always go full noise. I am a huge fan of arts & crafts & potter away making fashion designs, wearable art costumes, captain hats & all sorts. #joholleydesigns I love finding random things laying around & going "oooohhh that could make an awesome ......." into the arts & crafts area it goes. My buddies keep saying I need to open a shop cos I have always made stuff & I love giving it to people to bless them. My fave is the captain hats for AJ, Aidan, Cat which are kiwiana with high vibrational words in the form of scrabble relating to them so everywhere they went they would shine bright, lift vibes & share Aotearoa. I love helping people feel great & dressing them up in things they never thought of. And taking them shopping aye Dunc!! You will be bargain hunting & leaving with "what is this?" Every1 will 💖 it
We have create sessions where the crew dig up everyones left over crafts & we create & we are always in each others costume wardrobes. Thats the thing u do not need to buy new, see who has what, use what is already around.
My 💖 4 wearable arts comes from a young age where I was right into fashion, dressing up barbies & I modelled in all the shows in Gisborne.
Dressing up is so much fun. So when ur next dress up party comes up - go hard out. Fully morph into that character. Have fun with it and crack yourself up! Don't care what anyone else thinks of your costume. Jeepers 1 year we dressed my mate Evan as a teabag!! Halloween is coming so start seeing what u have laying around at home that can be transformed into something u can wear.
If u need help with costumes then send me pics of what u are thinking. Happy as to help transform your look so u feel epic!
I’m about to do a live interview on @bbcradio4 for their show #frontrow, alongside @hankwillisthomas as part of the @forfreedoms Billboard 50 state initiative.
This undertaking, spearheaded by Hank and @ericgottesman Is timely and necessary. Over 100 artists have created over 150 billboards to generate dialogue around the state of democracy in this country.
Here are a partial views of three of my proposed billboards. They were rejected by the billboard companies on the grounds of being deemed “offensive”. (Probably because one reads as a burning Klansman. I have no problem with that read: let’s incinerate white supremacy. Or on the basis of my chest being exposed. To which I wonder if “Would I have to have double maceotcmy and take hormones for people to believe that identify on the trans masculine spectrum?Would there be a problem with the topless H&M male swimsuit model?”)
This speaks to society self policing about whose body is acceptable in public space and whose is not.
You can see one of my billboards outside my upcoming exhibition @stationmuseum where we are taking the initiative to launch a billboard ourselves.

Light sneaks in on Colder Days Ahead.
There are days where you feel tired and weary with a tingling feeling in your stomach that leaves you wondering if this pain is real or self-inflicted.
There are days where you wake up different,
Different in every sense,
As if suddenly you've been stripped of your memories and everything around you feels unrecognizable.
Your surroundings, your clique, your eating habits.
Nothing seems familiar.
And on those days, when you feel lost and confused,
You act impulsively and aggressively, trying to chase answers.
Dying to know the truth,
Aching to belong,
So much noise in the air,
Giving you the sensation that you need to keep up with the pace,
Follow through without any further questions,
But even when it feels like life's got you on a pedestal,
Learn to slow down,
Learn to slow down and clear out the noise,
When you remain calm against muddy waters,
You connect with your inner psyche.
You go within and make space for your thoughts, fears and dreams to roam freely,
To guide you,
To heal you,
To create the real you that is stuck within this clutter.
Only then, your answers can be revealed.
Only then, can you grow from past wounds.
Only then, can you take responsibility for your choices and reactions.
Only then, can you depict if your pain was real or self-inflicted.
Only then, it will all make sense.
In response to unwarranted police intervention at the 13th International Conference on Thai Studies in Chiang Mai, attendees created a banner reading “An academic forum is not a military barrack”. These attendees were summoned to the police and charged with assembling more than five people for political activities without the authority’s permit. In solidarity with these individuals and to raise awareness of this great breach of human rights, we are encouraging people to take a picture holding the same message and share it on social media.
Siamo felicissimi di annunciarvi la collaborazione con @absolut_it ! In occasione dell'Absolut Symposium (hub creativo del @clubtoclub), abbiamo ideato un viaggio a tappe che, grazie a una squad d'ospiti d'eccezione, ci porterà prima a un panel nella sede di Pernod Ricard Italia a MIlano (il 26 ottobre), e poi direttamente al Club to Club di Torino (1-3 novembre). I posti al panel sono limitati, correte a iscrivervi nel link che trovate nelle stories. #freedomofexpression#allgendersareequal
"Have the courage to be yourself"-P.D.
What does it feel like? What does it look like? Or-What should YOU look like? What energy would you bring in?
This means allowing yourself to completely love all things within you and express them outwardly. It's the greatest feeling of joy to be who you are with no one's permission or approval but yours!
Move away from the vibration of judgment-allowing others to dictate what you should look like.
Move away from the vibration of falsehood-expressing only PARTS of yourself to others in the hopes of being or remaining accepted. You are NOT what others dictate you to be. You are whole because you are YOU. Tell those gremlins to take it or leave it😂! Anyone who knows me personally knows that I hold no prisoners. I pull out all the stops in more ways than one. Who says I am supposed to be in a box, the same every day? I express myself wholly. I honour and savour all aspects of myself and I refuse to falsify this fact in any way. Life is boring that way. Just. Be. You. Because I really like you that way 😍. Happy Friday❣
People’s Vote' talk @BHASVIC ahead of London march on Saturday 20 October in favour of a People’s Vote on the final Brexit deal. Concerns expressed about impact of no deal + for some a people's vote now would undermine democratic process already undertaken #FreedomofExpression
Remind me never to drive to the Gold Coast after lunch time on a Friday! #whatwasithinking.
Last chance tomorrow to see these paintings up at the @thecreativecollectivebrisbane Art Exhibition. Do yourself a favour and go check them out. You can do all your Christmas shopping early! #bonus
Voting is a crucial aspect of democracy. Another thing democracy can't live without? Art.
Throughout its young history, controversial pieces of art and literature have tested our nation's constitutional allegiance to freedom of expression. Each source of provocation assesses the quality of our democracy, checking for weaknesses that may restrict our rights.
Moral of the story: art supports freedom.
