After weeks of separation, my best friends and I finally had a chance to reunite. It feels like it's been years since the last time I saw them. This opportunity came in the form of Pasar Seni ITB 2014, which my best friend Gina happens to be a part of. Oh yeah, Pasar Seni ITB is an event held by the Fine Arts and Design students of the Institut Teknologi Bandung (ITB) every 4 years. Uli and I came without a second thought. Uli's friend Sasya also came along - I'd heard so much about her but hadn't had the chance to meet her until this weekend. The event wasn't at all like what we imagined it would be - both in a good and bad way - but it was quite a lot of fun. Well, mostly because I got to spend it with my soulmates.
Primark shirt (thrifted) // Connexxion dress (old) // Typo satchel bag // vintage hat + penny loafers // hand-me-down tights // photo of me by UliBefore I go on describing the event to you guys, let me show you what I was wearing. So, okay, I'll be honest. When I was packing for this weekend, I did not register the existence of rain. It was kind of stupid to be wearing a.) white and b.) penny loafers. For one thing, that dress ended up being smeared all over by mud - okay, not all over, just the bottom part. For another, the loafers are soaked through. They look much darker, don't they? Nope, they're the ones I've always had. I hadn't purchased another pair. The hat was a good call, though, because it save my hair...although it doesn't help because my whole outfit was dripping wet. I really love this outfit, though. It's like a collar-on-collar action. Much too saccharine?
The best part of Pasar Seni this year, I think, is the augmented reality effect. It's actually really cool. So Pasar Seni has this app you can download to your phone prior to the event. During the event, you can turn on the app and point the camera to their symbols (or 'marka' as they call it) at some of the pinpoints scattered all around the campus. In reality, you will just see some strange symbols while, on your phone, you will see some 3D animations. You can take pictures of or with the animation. One of the symbols is as captured in the first photo. That one becomes a bowl of noodle and meatballs. You can check some more out on my instagram. Incredibly impressed.
