Dress up Catch up!

Wow, it’s been a while since I posted anything fancy dress related, hasn’t it!!

But, as well as all the crochet related stuff I’ve been getting up to, I’ve also been making merry in a range of different outfits – cos, as you probably know, I just love the chance to dress up :)

Anyway, it has been way too long so, here’s a quick catch up :)

Last night saw hubby and I in suits, ties and bowler hats ;)  Yup, you’ve guessed it, Laurel and Hardy :)

Keeping us company throughout Thursbay Jam were Johnny Depp and Spectacles from the BoxTrolls – thank you so much for a fun evening guys!  Shame about the hangover this morning though – I should have left that last glass of wine in the bottle ;)

Next we had a scary glimpse into our own future when our friend Karen embraced becoming another year older by throwing and old people’s party!

It’s scary how much I look like my mother ;)   It was however a great excuse to take my crochet to the pub ;)

Finally, before I end this quick fancy dress update, I leave you with something equally as scary – my hubby, my daughter and her boyfriend and yours truly, rocking it up Clockwork Orange style for Halloween 2013.  Oh, and  some random shots, from all sorts of times and places that I can’t remember, because I left it far too long to blog about it ;)

Huge thanks go out to my amazingly talented sister-in-law-ish Lisa ‘Memory of a Soul’ Parsons who did hubby’s skull face and my witch make up – she is truly magic with a make up brush :)

Happy dressing up everyone ♥

My husband may cringe when he realises I’ve put this one up but no fancy dress parade is complete without at least one Rocky Horror picture.

Another camp-out, another theme. Pirates this time. Come to think of it, I seem to spend a lot of time in a field wearing fancy dress!

Me as a vampire. Actually, not a Halloween outfit but a Christmas one.. I didn’t choose the theme of the party – honestly.

Cavemen – Those animal print wellies were just what the weather demanded :D

I guess you have to be over a certain age to remember Wizard.


Make up is always fun!

The Sculptor and his Living Statues

This has got to be one of my favourites.  The Sculptor and his Living Statues!

The white hair and face make up was an absolute nightmare to get off (and on for that matter) but I think the end result was worth all the hassle.

It’s a shame the photograph doesn’t show all the detail in the quilted wings….they were definitely my proudest bit. Oh, and the harp and horn are cardboard which was a challenge to say in the least.
