August 21st is Kim Catrall’s 55th birthday. Of all the great characters Kim has played, no-one is more loved than Samantha Jones from Sex and City. Now whether you were a fan of the show or not, you’s have to admit she was the funniest character in the whole series, given classic line such as:
1. Fuck me badly once, shame on you. Fuck me badly twice, shame on me.
2. Could you shave or something? Blowing you is like getting my teeth flossed.
3. I love the stock market: a room full of screaming, sweaty men, all trying to get it up.
4. I will not be judged by you or society. I will wear whatever and blow whomever I want as long as I can breathe and kneel!
5. The bad news is you’re fired. The good news is now I can fuck you.
August 19 is World Humanitarian Day. When I found this out, the first thing I thought of was the “Human Being” mascot from the TV show Community. This has got to be hands down the creepiest costume I have ever, or will ever, create.
Hide yo’ kids.

August 18th is Andy Samberg’s birthday. Samberg is most notably known for the hit song “Jizz in my pants” and his work on Saturday Night Live. Some of his best work was done with Justin Timberlake, which is why I have chosen to dress ala “Dick in a box” theme today.
To all the fellas out there with ladies to impress. It’s easy to do just follow these steps:
So it’s come to this, personal jokes. Today is the last day of a dear friend C-Bomb at work. You may know C-Bomb from such photo credits as this blog. As a dedication to this friendship and the great years spent working with her, our mutual workmate Save Cheerleader thought it would be funny if I dressed up as her on her last day…this then quickly steam-rolled into all the girls in the direct team dressing up as her. To let everyone in on the joke, this is what C-Bomb looks like on a regular basis at work:
Please note the tight ballerina bun, black 50’s cut dress, black cardigan and patent belt. Further to this is the black eye-liner, black opaque tights and patent Wittner heels.
So this is the challenge I, and the team, took on today. Please note that we all got the tick of approval from C-Bomb herself.

August 16 is Madonna’s birthday. In honour of this Diva’s ever-changing commitment to re-invent herself and her style, I have chosen to dress in arguably her most notable look. The cone outfit from The Blonde Ambition tour.
This outfit is like a version of that 😉

I have had a lot of suggestions around animal themes, so today I thought I would take on the theme of Cats, dressing up as arguably the most famous cat in the world: Keyboard Cat. I was even lucky enough to play off some strays while taking the blog pics.
August 14th is Mila Kunis’ birthday. Mila Kunis is the costume I’ve been wearing my whole life…or so people tell me. If you don’t know me personally and have been looking at my blog wondering who I remind you of, I hope I’ve helped you out. So today I’ve chosen to dress up as Mila ala Jackie from That 70’s Show.

August 13 is International Left Handers Day. Yes, I said INTERNATIONAL. So today I have dressed up as the MOST FAMOUS left hander there could possibly be: Ned Flanders. Because as we know, hens love roosters, geese love gander, everyone else loves Ned Flanders….or everyone who counts loves Ned Flanders!

August 12th is International Youth Day. At first I thought I would dress up as the one eyebrow baby from The Simpsons, but my brother argued that a baby is too young to be classified as “youth”. I think set my mind on a path to dress up as someone that the youth idolise….and that brought me to Justin Bieber.
Please note: I may just have to upload some of these to LWLLJB.
