After having our Easter Eggstravaganza at the Window Rock Zoo and Botanical Park this past April, we were invited by the zoo to join them for their annual Zoo Fest this past weekend. We greeted guests as they came through the entrance with our tropical themed photo booth. We had some bake sale items, flower clips, and photo albums of our past events on display.
Like most of our events, the public is always interested in our organization and we were happy to inform and spread the awesome news of what our organization does for the community. It was very surprising to see how many people came to the event! The weather was a lovely sunny and breezy day – a WIN for us.
Our Pin Me Up Workshop has returned!! This event is the most requested and we are so happy to bring our Native women together for some fun. Not only did we have new classes on Vintage Hairstyling and 5 Pinup Points, we also added a few really cool surprises.
One of those surprises was Grownup Navajo herself, Jaclyn Roessel. She provided us with helpful mantras, and even performed two poems, “Dear Girl-Made-of-Honey” and “Seeds of Resilience” This definitely set the mood for our workshop and also left us with happy hearts.
Another addition were our guests from The iiSh, Amanda and Ashley. They were covering our event from beginning to end. It was great because they are new to the pinup world and we had the wonderful opportunity to show each of our classes live on Facebook. You can check out their awesome event recap by clicking HERE.
We had previously asked Jaclyn and Ashley to be our models for our demos and they happily accepted. Our participants were able to see the pinup transformation right in front of their very eyes. We explained our hair processes from setting to styling, and discussed our BBP 5 Pinup Points. Once again, we were excited to be sponsored by Suavecita Pomade, which is our go to brand for all of our hair needs!!
Our workshop included teenagers, sisters, and we even had a mom and daughter combo! We welcomed all women to enjoy a day of learning about what we absolutely love.
We hope that you can join us at the next event!
A couple of days before we headed off to Navajo Code Talkers Day in Window Rock, Arizona we were contacted by our long time friend Jared Yazzie from OXDX Clothing. He was putting together his Fall Release and asked us to be a part of the photoshoot, so of course we had to say YES! With his amazing line and so many dope creatives on his team, we knew it was going to be fly!
On March 19th, 2016 we held our 3rd Annual Easter Eggstravaganza event in Window Rock, AZ. The Easter hunt took place at the Window Rock Veteran’s Park with hundreds of guests and 5,000 eggs! We also had a playful Alice in Wonderland theme for the Spring weather and handmade decorations from all our Members. Each of us dressed up as a character from the 1951 Disney movie, such as Alice, Tweedledee and Tweedledum, Cheshire Cat, The Red Queen, Playing Cards, and Singing Flowers.
The weather was beautiful for March, with sunny skies and minimal winds. We hosted our Easter Bake Sale and Raffle Booth with many prizes donated by native artists such as Jay Garcia, Jay Smiley, Def-I, OxDx Clothing, and others. Our guests really enjoyed our themed event that year!
We were invited as special guests to participate in Presence 4.0’s Retrospectrum fashion show and style mixer in Phoenix, AZ at their downtown’s very own Bar Smith. The show was a portrayal of mixed fashions from different decades. Various Native American designers such as Loren Aragon’s ACONAV, Jared Yazzie’s OXDX Clothing, and Beyond Buckskin Boutique put together their own representations of a decade.
