The Lucid Dream

Lucid Dream

Ok, I need your help.

I’m going to a really cool party this Saturday, and I need help deciding what to wear! (Yes, again.)

This year, the Winnipeg Art Gallery’s Art and Soul fundraiser theme is The Lucid Dream – a style that incorporates what Salvador Dali was best known for: surrealist art.

The evening sounds amazing: the Gallery will be outfitted in several different dreamscapes and we’ll be dancing to the beats of Attica Riots, DJ Hunnicut, DJ Co-op, DJ Mamacutsworth and Ashy+Zuky of Jams, and there’s even going to be an Absinthe bar – where things could get quite surreal with a bit of the green elixir!

The Winnipeg Art Gallery is an amazing downtown Winnipeg institution – they have beautiful galleries, feature the largest collection of Inuit art in the world, and they bring in really cool exhibits – like Dali Up Close, so I’m thrilled to support – but I’m nervous to be surrounded by a bunch of creative arty-types in genius costumes, so I want to make sure mine is on point!!!

So. Help me out here, friends. What’s the most lucid-dreamy, surrealist costume you can think of? Shoot me some ideas in the comments section below, or tweet me an example pic on Twitter (@downtownpeggy) and follow and tag @WAGArtandSoul while you’re there. And while you’re brainstorming on my behalf, also be thinking about what you’d wear – because I’ll be making a random draw for two VIP tickets to The Lucid Dream at 3pm on Thursday.

I’m all ears!

…hm, maybe there’s an idea…

  1. Alot of dali’s pieces are black and white. You could play off that by wearing a black and white patterened outfit. Then do your make up in black and white with perhaps a pop of colour or in the two faced silhouette.

  2. Wear a black tube dress with long white gloves, red high heels and a fancy clip in your hair. I would wear my red dress that I bought for valentines day last year hoping to have a date but I ended up wearing it while I wrote a paper for University.

  3. You could dress like Frida Kahlo. Not only was she a surrealist painter but she also painted a lot of self-portraits. You could wear vibrant colours, a braided updo and pencil in your eyebrows so they connect.
