A few weeks ago I got this hilarious disposable camera that superimposes cat motifs over the pictures. It turns out that it is a pretty terrible camera! The viewfinder is tiny, so you never know what you’re taking a photo of, the frames are all off, only three motifs showed up although the box had six on it, and the pictures themselves are grainy and dark and awful. You could totally layer on your own cat motifs in editing if you wanted to, but that’s not as much fun. Even though the camera sucks I did love that I had no idea what to expect when the film was developed. Also: cats!
I took it to the Rookie party at Magic Pony on Saturday, thinking it was appropriate, and it was. I think “cat” was the most popular costume (other notables: Suzy & Sam from Moonrise Kingdom, Frida Kahlo). Also the collage quality of the pictures is pretty Rookie-esque (okay, maybe that’s a stretch).
It was such a fun party! So many amazing, life-affirming happy vibes, and so many excellent costumes.

Teen dance party!
Candy/tarot/cake spread (Diana from Magic Pony made the cake and it was incredible! It was multi-coloured on the inside, covered in flowers, and it took her a week to make).
Tavi! With Julia from Drawn & Quarterly.
Oh and this is what happens when you use the camera vertically.

Me and Kristin (meow!). I have bangs again, sigh.
