"We feel very pretty."

Queen Victoria
The Queen Victoria statue outside the QVB (Queen Victoria Building)
in Sydney's CBD yesterday.

She's been decorated as part of the Sydney Statues: Project!, part of Art & About Sydney 2010. Her temporary robes were designed by Rachael Cassar and Liane Rossler with Michelle McCosker.

Usually, the good Queen Vic looks like this:

Other Sydney statues dressed up for the occasion include:

Worth another trip into the city!
