Being a Sunday we can have some fun activities happening in the arvo prior to Sundown when the moon rises and the night lights up with festive magick*:.



I was wondering if anyone would like to facilitate and organise some mural panting for the kids (and young at heart) perhaps a big bit of paper taped up along the new fence at the bottom of the hill down from the Moora ParkAny takers? Perhaps asking an arts group if theyd like to be involved would be a good plan:*



So come down a little earlier in the arvo for SUNfest sunny bring along all your juggle toys, juggle twirly whirlies, weavesmiley instruments and drums for a jam and play maybe bring a picnic dinner and enjoy the early spring sunshine!*:. sunny



There will also be some sand sculpting in Flower Power theme for SUNfest too Ive heard whispers of big peace signs and groovy things so make sure you dont miss out on the funkadelic fun*:. biggrin bounce biggrin



Well have a massive drumming up of energy under the moon in the flower power candle circle so dont forget your dancing feet, (or platforms or sandals) plus your drums and tambourines for a boogie shaking your groove thang*:. ubbrollsmile hehe ubbrollsmile

Posted:biggrin Love your ideas! ubblove ubbidea ubblove

I think we could combine the ideas together

coz I think i will be able to make a sort of cocoon opening out into a fire butterfly sculpture thing... to quote myself.... ubblol

Written by:
... and the more i think about it... the more of ubbidea <---these I'm getting

I think a fire butterfly sculpture cold be made with flexy wings that fold up and is inside the cocoon (made of papier-mache/latern style rice paper and bamboo/cane ...so as the cocoon burns away it unfolds to present the beautiful flaming butterfly!!! biggrin



But... that PLUS all the lovely butterfly children fire fan dancers flittering about when the cocoon opens up would be bEaUtiFuL!!!*:.

I'm also going to bring along my little pixie fire totum poles (they haven't been to moonfest yet biggrin) so maybe incorperating them in somewhere....

I also have giant puppets from previous moonfests... which might be fun to incorperate them into a big group show thingy

member the spring goddess giant puppet??? takes about three people to opperate.... she needs a little reconstruction... but nothing to sirious (i hope confused wink) and then there's the rainbow serpent head... which requires a body of colourful people....

So... not sure exactly how a rainbow serpent... spring goddess... and flamming butterfly cocoon thing... and pixie totum poles all work in together.... but.... shrug

Posted:Hey gorgeous *:.Keira.:* biggrin hug ubblove

We are putting the paper with our wishes written on, inside the cocoon that holds all that yummy dreamy wish energy, and as the cocoon burns and transforms into a beautiful flaming butterly so do our dreams as they flitter up into the sky and become hope for the future... bringing our hopes into fruition... transforming any yuckies in our life into hope and dreams coming true. *:.

Will we write our wishys when we get there?? What time is everyone going down, in the afternoon sometime?

Whenever I decide to go early nobody is ever around until dark! confused but it's okay I might have a picnic with the family if nobody is around anyway - I'm bringing my mum and dad this time. My mum loves bringing the hippie out in her This will be a really fun one! ubblol

Posted:Can they start as a caterpillar then go into a coccoon. Maybe do painting in the catipillar stage as they worm wriggles around. Then the kids can pretend with them. Maybe have foam stamps of love made and stamp the caterpillar with stars, flowers and (boobie) glitter and hearts and wings and stuff. The stamps can be made big and cheap using like the camping foam mats.

Glow in the dark paint maybe...so later when the coccoon is left it glows.

Would be nice to show life cycle changes for spring. ...



Oo..can she hatch out of an egg, the wriggle then pupate into the beautifl butterfly..

I want to go to MOONfest!!!

Posted:Urrrgghhh.... After playing witchy healer to a sickly boy, looks like I've now caught it (forgot to touch wood after boasting about how super resilient I was, hehehe). So there will be less play for me between now and moonfest... just lots of meditation, walks, oils and herbal brews, and painting-painting-painting. But upcoming flower power moonfest I think is extra incentive to get better FAST.

Hmmm so far this year it hasn't been often that we've had a clear afternoon for SUNfest. It clears up by dusk usually. Fingers crossed everyone. Looking forward to an afternoon of sunny creativity.

Posted:......:* ubbidea

maybe the show could go something like this....

*:.the flower power candle circle is set with all the candles and flowers and beautiful bits (earlier in the arvo) the flaming butterfly cocoon sculpture in the middle containing all the wishes and things people have written on paper and placed inside.:*

*:. the rainbow serpent (this is a gorgeously bright rainbow coloured papier-mache sculptured head) with a body of beautiful colourful people holding a single fire club in both hands above their heads (like a serpent scaley spike) weave through the crowd and up to the candle circle and spiral around to the edge of the candle cirle and curls up to sleep (rainbow serpent dreaming)*:.

*:.The spring maiden arises... She is a giant puppet (will need three people to opperate her... any takers?) I have been mending her and hopefully she'll scrub up alright wink ... she's like a giant hippy chick really peace... one hand is in a peace symbol... the other will have a bunch of flowers... Also at this point I thought it would be nice to light the pixie totum poles... as the pictures on them are of feminine...pixie...children of springtime kinda thing*:. (also they give off good light so we can see the puppet biggrin) so while the pixie fire totums burn the spring maiden hippy chick puppet dances about... she gives life to everything she touches*:.

*:.she gives life to the wishes in the cocoon and puts loving energy of nuturing and groth into our dreams... she transforms the death of winter into the life of spring*:.

*:.Cocoon transforming into beautiful flaming butterfly*:. the cocoon full of wishes is lit... as it burns it unfolds into a beautiful flaming butterfly (hopefully... I'm working on this bit ubblol ...but if not the next bit covers the idea of it aswell anyway... smile)

*:.out of the magickal energy of the cocoon all the baby butterflies of hopes and wishes are born... (people dancing about with fire fans/fingers... possibly some of the same people that were in the body of the rainbow serpent???)

*:.Kwisty beautiful butterfly goddess, gets lit along with all the butterfly babies and dances around... she represents mumma butterfly energy ...nurturing her little bubbas... taking care of all the wishes and good vibes and stuff (don't mess with my wishes wink coz I got kiss ass flaming wings! ubblol)

*:.at the end i would love shimmerdust to pore down from the sky over everyone.... biggrin ..... not quite sure how to make that one happen.... ubblol ubblol ubblol

....right... so put your hand up if you wanna be in the show! ubblol biggrin smile

Ok I'm even more sickly now, but am going to see the doc tomorrow and get on the mend quicksmart. The first Spring moonfests are always so lush; I don't want to miss this one for anything! I'd love to be part of this... baby butterfly, serpent body, whatever is needed ubblove This moonfest sounds like it's going to be so vibrant and full of life (not that the last moonfest had but a blink of a dull moment --- ooh the fondue and the and the and the--- but I'm so excited about all these beautiful creations and props of yours coming out again Elke! I love that spring maiden). I'd be like this ==> ubbcrying ubbcrying ubbcrying mad2 if I had to miss it.
