Back to the 60s...I'm a hippie!

This year, I recycled a red pirate vest I wore in Halloween 2010 and transformed it into a brown hippie vest. I used Dylon Persian Blue color dye and it somehow turned the red vest brown... and that's the color I wanted! Besides, I trimmed it into a fringed vest.

As for the bell bottom, I tried Kamdar but couldn't get the fabric print I wanted. One day I suddenly remembered I had a torn floral skirt that I'd not been wearing for ages. Viola! I took it out and cut it into 2 pieces (front & back)

My tailor sew them into 2 smaller pieces. She charged me RM8. I wish I could sew :-P

With the elastic band, it's easy to wear. (I borrowed the tie dyed t-shirt from my sis-in-law)

Hip...Hip Hippie...Hooray!!

I should have decorated my guitar with some floral print but I was just too busy to do so.


My sis-in-law gave me a batik fabric for my hippie headband.

Glad I found a peace symbol pendant too. Hippie loves peace :-)

Oh, the guitar you're holding in the photo here is a classical guitar ! It ain't a folk guitar as in the days of hippies !

Flowers children ?

You are so creative, Yuin Ting! Your girls inherited your creativity quality! And imagine wearing your new hippie outfit to Tesco! Surely you will attract a lot of attention!

Hi Anonymous, thanks for your comment.
You know a lot about hippie culture...were you a flower child? I fell in love with that era after watching Mama Mia :-)

Hi Claire, so if I were to hold a 60s concert, will you be my special guest? We can sing the Beatles & ABBA songs together, sure our tickets will sell like hot cakes, ha ha!

Hi Sunny-Cookie, thanks for your compliment. Peace to the world!

Hi Joyful.Mum, thanks! I think if we give kids the freedom to explore, all will become very creative.
If I wear that hippie costume to Tesco, I'm sure my son will remind me to bring a mask along. He will say, "Mom, it's public embarrassment!"
Teenagers are just so concerned with what others think.
