Mini Odd Duck Retro & Geek Show at Jezebel & Radio-Active Records
Saturday afternoon, the Hollywood Craft Mafia brought the crafting world and nerd community together at their Mini Odd Duck Retro and Geek Show held at Jezebel Vintage and Radio-Active Records in Fort Lauderdale. Jezebel hosted the retro side of the show and did the most beautiful job transforming their cozy store into a handmade enthusiast's dream packed with talented crafters and my favorite part... the pinup photo booth. Radio-Active Records played host to the geekier side of the show, which included the most hilariously creative hats I've ever seen in my life, delicious-smelling beer soap, and superadorable, videogame-inspired baby clothes.
"What I really like about craft fairs is meeting people; on etsy, you rarely get to speak to the people that buy your stuff. At craft fairs, I get to speak one on one with the people that buy and enjoy my work." - Danny Brito
How adorable are Kaytea's creations? They make me wanna have a baby just so I could dress them in clothing with Nintendo controllers.
Too perfect for words.
Stefanie Merullo and Amanda Linton are the queens of crafty cuteness with their sugary inspired goodies.
However, all amazing crafts aside, I'll be honest: Hairstylist and
makeup artist Adrienne Amenta really stole the show with her retro-inspired looks such as beehives and 1940s-type 'dos. She was going nonstop from the time the event started until well after closing time and still had a line of girls wanting makeovers. Maybe next time, ladies! I know I will be calling on her for my next big event.
Aileen from Undergrounds Coffeehaus looking fabulously done up by Adrienne. We both agreed we wish she could do our hair every day. Girls can dream, right?
This little girl was looking oh so stylish with her beehive.
The Hollywood Craft mafia ladies are
doing something great for the local crafting community from their
workshops to planning craft shows, and I am looking forward to
attending their upcoming show in April.
