Showing off my wild side
Today is a very special day because today is Wear It Wild day. It's a new campaign by WWF UK, encouraging people to dress up like their favourite wild animal in support endangered species around the world. If you need a scary statistic to shock you into action, wildlife populations are less than half of what they were in 1970! The aim of the day is to bring out your wild side and do it in support of charity, you can donate here.
There's a very special competition running alongside the campaign, special because I'm a judge! To enter all you have to do is post a photo of yourself in a wild outfit on social media and tag it #weartiwild. There are three categories and the best in each wins a fancy prize so get posting!
The three categories are:
We’ll be looking for your best leopard print leggings, wildest onesie or snazziest socks.
Keep it wild and let your creativity shine: add a tail to your favourite coat, add some ears on that old hat or jazz up that jacket.
Vintage warrior Head to your local charity shop or vintage fairs, dig around in your wardrobe, and reach for that 80s animal print raa-raa skirt: just don’t forget to keep it faux.
The competition closes tomorrow (6th June 2015)
P.S. There was meant to be a tutorial on making this headband but I managed to destroy my progress and didn't manage to finish again today. It might be up some time later but alas not in time for Wear It Wild :(
