Well 2018 was our biggest year yet! We hope you enjoyed our shenanigans. I think our favorite event we attended, and a first for us, was MTV presents Gibraltar Calling, where we hosted our very own glitter stall making all the attendees SPARKLE. It was great fun, with everyone making us feel so welcome and we do believe they enjoyed our presence too, as we all danced, sung & sparkled our way through an amazing festival.
Moving into another great local event, which is the annual Gibraltar fair. Here we were able to man our very own face painting stall for the kids (and some willing adults) of Gibraltar. Seeing their little faces light up when they saw our designs on them in the mirror was the highlight of an awesome 8 days. With a mass of other stalls hosted by some lovely & friendly locals, along with some great entertainment made for a wonderful & fulfilling event. We hope to return to in the future!
During all this we have also been reminiscing about our own festival, where we hosted our very FIRST catwalk which was a major success (even if we do say so ourselves). So we are bringing it back in 2019 bigger and better! Along with our star judge from last year, whom we know you all love, Sarah Scarer Smith! We’d love to take some time to thank the fabulous Pashur House (website) for bringing his amazing talent and eyes to also judge 2018’s very talented entries. We hope to see you in 2020 (pretty please)! A massive thank you to our photographers who help us year in year out - John M Piris, Angelique Fernandez & Gerry Fagan. As well as all the wonderful and talented artists and models new & returning whom the festival would be impossible without. Also congratulations again to the winners:
1st Place: Celeste and her assistant Javier with their very own model Jesus for an extremely effect paint and use of prosthetics
2nd Place: Tina Smith from the UK for her wonderful work on her model Keely Rollo
3rd Place: John Jones and his model Brittney Vander Meiden
Last, but not least a very special mention to our awesome DJ Matty, who provided the music on the catwalk.
That being said we have been busy planning 2019 with some amazing surprises on the way!! Don’t forget to check out our already revealed info of our 2019 festival including dates, workshops and more... Hope you had a great 2018 and are as excited as we are for the Gibraltar Body Art Festival 2019! SEE YOU THERE!
