Marie Lantern-ette

Marie Lanternette is a glowing spectacle, with her skirt made of paper lanterns lit up with camping lights! Sometimes Ms Lanternette has a collection of lanterns on long poles that she uses to light people’s way and lead them from place to place. 8 foot tall and teetering in platform heels, the enormous bouffant “wig” strewn with cake, donuts and what appears to be fairy-floss, is the cherry on top of this spectacular luminescent look.

Marie Antoinette:

Lose your head with Marie Antoinette! This decadent queen is the life of any party! Ukulele in tow, her appearances feature themed original songs about cake, champagne and the benefits of losing one’s head! The costume glitters beautifully in the light, and is enchanting in its magnitude and grace. Cheeky, decadent behavior from this French Queen and her hilariously infectious hedonism pairs perfectly with the high class and glamour of this striking aesthetic. This popular character is always a hit.

Lady Gorgeous

Lady Gorgeous is a personable, wildly effervescent and slightly geeky glamour queen. Whether she is wielding ukulele or maracas, she is prone to breaking into song and dance like an enthusiastic one-person flash mob laughing all the way. No one can quite work out from where in the world she heralds, but it can be assumed she has travelled far and wide, collecting songs along her path. With her extensive repertoire featuring calypso, Hawaiian, exotica, and some hilarious catchy originals, she brings the flavor of the tropical zones and the taste of Pina Coladas to mind. Her fruity persona and lights up a room and she always arrives armed with a swag of instruments. Virtuosic on the mini trumpet and ukulele with a utility belt of

maracas, and coconuts, with which she rustles up an unsuspecting improvised band of with her infectious zeal for tunes. For spontaneous musical delights, colour and energy, you can’t go past the queen of quirk and musical maestro, Lady Gorgeous.

SEASONAL WEARABLE ART & CUSTOM CREATIONS

Perhaps the most iconic and memorable roving performances are those that are made specific to a site, festival or natural environment. Anya Anastasia creates and embodies wild and unique interactive roving characters and wearable art out of naturally sourced materials. Popular examples of these include a spring dress made of 250 live ranunculi flowers, or an autumnal gown from collected leaves. These organic costume creations and the personality that inhabits them are the perfect addition to a festival to add ethereal woodland wonderment, and memorable interactive experiences for audiences young and old. Examples below.

“Phone-Head” The Selfie Showgirl

Anya Anastasia (a millennial-yoga-matcha-latte-futuristic-social-media-influencer-entrepreneur), got tired of using her arms for selfies and having to reach over crowds to experience real life through her iPhone. WHAT SHE DID NEXT WILL BLOW YOUR MIND!...

She invented…Phone-Head!

Part social-commentary, part hilarious and interactive performance art, PHONEHEAD is an outrageously engaging and charismatic roving character, as well as ironically being the ultimate social media #hashtag online content generator for your event.

TWIGGY

“Twiggy" the Singing Tree is at once festive and ethereal. With branches of real flora interwoven into her dress, adorned with fairy lights and candy canes, she moves slowly and gracefully.  She can be dressed for Christmas with bells on her heels and glitter in her wings, or redressed for an Australiana look, as a wattle!  She is seven-foot-tall with a striking visual presence great for any event, stationary or mobile. Her angelic voice and ukulele will charm and delight passers by who may pose for a photo, make a wish, or glean some wisdom of the forests and the stars.  She can be a glamorous host, a friendly statuesque installation, or provide light lilting tunes and cheer.  The magic of a real-life walking and singing tree is a delight indeed, and of course, battery operated Christmas tree lights so she glows in the evenings!
