Vivid Sydney is an annual outdoor lights festival held in Sydney, Australia. The event has been held annually every winter since 2009, and has enjoyed increasing popularity with each year. The event is held during winter in central Sydney, and for 2015 ran its course over 22 May to 8 June (traffic during this period was crazy!)
This year I was lucky enough to stay in the country and not miss the much talked about Vivid. While the team and I enjoyed Vivid, I do not recommend booking a Vivid Cruise for the following reasons:
1. Being a night winter festival, it gets pretty pretty cold
2. Sydney is pretty rainy this time of the year
3. You don’t actually see all that Vivid Sydney has to offer
Vivid Sydney is much better on foot.
Due to the cold and rain, my team and I took part in making ourselves Vivid for the 2.5 hr cruise trip.
Here are the results:
Post cruise was much more fun. Here are some photos of Vivid Sydney on foot
The team and I (sans Sebastian) bathing in the glow that is Vivid Sydney.
I also promised Chris that I’d let him paint me fluoro to test his fluoro lighting equipment.
It was so cold..
The things we do for art!
Outfit details: My assistant Sebastian and I have started a little collaboration and this is our lovechild! The top uses leather, lace and metal. All my favourite components. Skirt and top are both available by custom order. You know my details!
