Our current girl crush: Miss Lottie Geliot. If you haven't already stalked her on Instagram, please do everyone a favour and click here. Right, you now understand why she's the latest Gypsy Shrine artist to feature in THE DAY IN THE LIFE OF A GYPSY SHRINE ARTIST.
Not only does her amazing talent in glittering people over make us green with envy but her style is absolute GOALS. We find out who Lottie's style inspiration is, what she'd be doing if she wasn't a Gypsy Shrine artist and which member of the Spice Girls she'd love to give a glitter makeover too.

THE GIRLS! We get to work with the most gorgeous bunch of individuals. I’ve made so many new friends since working with the Gypsy Shrine - everyone is super talented, motivated and always a lot of fun. Secondly its definitely the travelling! I adore seeing new places and the Shrine has taken me to so many amazing locations - for example NEW YORK CITY ?!?!!!
WHERE DO YOU GET YOUR INSPIRATION FOR DIFFERENT GLITTER LOOKS FROM?
DRAG QUEENS - I am obsessed . They are incredible artists and transform there faces into pieces of art & I love that.
DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE IN THREE WORDS.
1 word … Bi-Polar
My style changes so often and definitely with my mood / environment - I’m forever stuck between being super colourful or grungy and black. I also love vintage pieces- especially from the 70's era.
IF YOU WEREN’T A GYPSY SHRINE ARTIST, WHAT ELSE WOULD YOU DO?
Alongside being a glitter pixie with The Gypsy Shrine, I am a production designer. (Set design) My roles vary from being the art department assistant to the head of department depending on the scale of production. Film making has been my passion since I can remember.
