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

I have a pattern that uses freezer bag ties and a bit of string and sticky tape.

Posted:I am so up for Combi painting! My first car was a Combi in like 1972... had the guts of a piano bolted to the inside of it, the combi would vibrate like hell of course, and set the piano strings to make spacey moon music as we drove along! ubbloco Very hippy!



We could paint it in the afternoon up in the car park... betterer than at night down on the beach... cos then we'd have to helicopter it in and out... which would be adding some of that Vietnam energy that the original hippie peace thing had but we'd probably all rather forget.... speaking as an original hippie... peace ooh 'scuse, am I rambling again? ubbloco

That kombi that you had Gabe sounds like real fun, wish you still had it, mine is a 75 (I think). It's my limo now cause I took the middle row of seats out. biggrin

Posted:so can anybody help with the paint for the kombi? I know I have red and white house paint, and maybe blue (have to check on that one). If I can't get hold of any other paint I guess we can't do it due to my 'too many dam bills' month and not being able to afford any more. I've got plenty of paint brushes though. I hope it will work out, it'd be so much fun! ubbloco

Posted:Years ago we had the ellemental moonfests... one for each of the ellements (what ever astralogical sign the moon was in for the full moon)

for the fire one we burnt a phoenix sculpture with a papier-mache phoenix egg... I'll try posting pix here... but i have a feeling it might end up looking like a little broken box but here goes


Non-Https Image Link



Non-Https Image Link


Everyone wrote wishes or things that they wanted to transform in there life on pieces of paper which were put inside the egg and we burnt with the phoenix fire sculpture... the phoenix represents transforamtion and change .... burning away the old to give life to the new

I was thinking.... maybe we could do a similar kind of thing for this spring moonfest????

what I would *love* to somehow do... is .... (I can see becca cringing right now.... what if we built a large wooden badger! ubbloco ...or mermaid shell.... ubbloco or or or...) or what i'd *really* LOVE to do for the spring one is to have somehow a cocoon that unfolds into a butterfly... somehow on fire... ummmmm confused ....anyone got any of these---> ubbidea ... I'm pretty good for --->shrugs ...hehehehe biggrin

so like everyone could put there wishes inside the cocoon and it transforms into a butterfly biggrin

Posted:Just passing through and saw that you could right click on the broken boxes then choose view image and it appears.

Just a suggestion, so you can ignore this if you like tongue
The butterfly idea is great for spring...but erm...incorporating fire...

Written by: .:* Moon Pixie *:.

so like everyone could put there wishes inside the cocoon and it transforms into a butterfly



If you stick everyone's wishes/hopes/dreams into a coccoon and then turn into a butterfly (great) then burn it... ubbcrying

Does that mean all their wishes go up in flames too?...The phoenix worked because they were born from flame...butterflies aren't... frown

Just a thought...


It's better to burn out than to fade away

Posted:I see your point...

I used to think it was really sad to see hours of work put into creating beautiful artworks and then burning them in fire events and rituals to be really sad ubbcrying ...but then going through the process of actually creating something for that very reason made me come to the point of feeling that the energy of fire is transformational...

you put your energies into the creation... you write your wishes hopes and dreams... and also things that you want to change or transform in your life... I feel like the flames burn away any yuckies and transforms it into hope.... it takes the energies of those dreams and wishes and send them out into the universe... bringing change, groth and new life...

I see fire as a beautiful thing full or life and rebirth

I'm thinking as the cocoon burns it unfolds into a beautiful flaming butterfly ...it's not so much a beautiful butterfly being burt to smitherines.... as more so a flaming butterfly coming to life out of the cocoon full of the energies of all our hopes and dreams*:.

well that's the way i see it anyways

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

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 ...so as the cocoon burns away it unfolds to present the beautiful flaming butterfly!!! ubblove

Posted:Elke I love your idea of the coccoon transforming into a butterfly. As for ubbidea, here goes... Bear with me...

There is someone in a butterfly costume. It starts off just as a coccoon... maybe they can be unravelled or something, and wings sprout from beneath the coccoon layer. This isn't on fire, but just normal so that people get the symbolism. They do however, have a single flame in the hand for the firey part, which comes next.... For the firey part then, you could have several coccoons with the wishes divided up between them. One person surrounds each coccoon - these creatures are kind of curled up on the ground. They have fire fans or something like wings. The person in the butterly costume runs around to each coccoon in turn and lights them. The people folded next to these coccoons (with their fans/wings over them or on each side of the coccoon), light their fans from the flaming cocoons and proceed to dance around the big main colourful butterfly like little firey butterflies. It gives a kind of "wake my children" feel to it too, so still quite spring goddessy-like smile

Did that all make sense?
