December 31st is New Years Eve, so I have taken this on as a theme and dress up as a firework, props to Ziggy for the idea. I have aimed to be the shooting up firework that explodes, but it was REALLY hard to capture on film – with flash it looked dumb and without flash you couldn’t see the costume. I hope a combination of photos helps you get the concept as you’d see it in real life.

December 30 is known as Freedom day for the Church of Scientology because this is when it was officially recognised in the United States in 1974. With this theme I have decided to dress as the most famous (in my opinion) Scientologist – Tom Cruise ala Risky Business.
At a friends request today I have decided to take on the theme of Angry Birds – the popular iPhone game app – dressing as the angriest of birds, the red one. Thanks to @martyPantaloons for the costume lend.
Today officially marks 6 months of Theme Me complete – wooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo hooooooooooooooooooooooooo! Now that I am halfway through my year-long challenge I have decided the only appropriate theme for today would be half. With this I have dressed as Two Face, for he has half a regular face and half a disfigured face. Further to this I have opted to represent Christopher Nolan’s Harvey Dent rather than the Joel Schumacher’s verison.
Late last week a good long-time friend gave birth to her first born. The last we met up I promised her that when she gave birth I would dedicate a post on Theme Me to her and her new motherhood. With that promise I bring you today’s theme of New Mother. I hope she finds this accurately funny 😉
Please note to achieve the vomit on the towel on my shoulder I used tartar sauce, while my singlet stain of choice was Dijon mustard. For the tired eyes I used dark blue eye shadow, and I used only one t-shirt to create the post-birth-giving-bump.
December 26 is Boxing day, a day where traditionally servants and tradesmen would receive boxed gifts from their superiors. So today I have decided to dress as a giant boxed gift, a transformer of sorts.

For the twelfth and final day of Christmas themes, I have decided to bring you: Awkward Family Photo – Christmas style. It’s a little bit 80’s and a little bit creepy with (I hope) a WHOLE lotta awkward.
I hope you like it and would just like to thank you all for joining in on this crazy journey with me thus far – MARY Christmas and a happy new year to all!
For the eleventh day of Christmas, I have decided to bring you the theme of Mary Mother of God. It was the role I was born to play (ever since my parents named me) Appropriately I have dress as pregnant Mary awaiting to give birth to Jesus on Christmas. MARY Christmas Eve!

Many Christmas’ ago, I went to buy a doll for my son. I reached for the last one they had, but so did another man.
As I rained blows upon, I realized there had to be another way!
I got a lot of problems with you people and now you’re gonna hear about it!

For the tenth day of Christmas, we navigate away from the traditional symbols of Christmas to bring you the anti-Christmas – Festivus. Festivus (for the rest of us) is celebrated on November 23 and was made popular through an episode of Seinfeld. Festivus was conceived by writer Dan O’Keefe and was celebrated by his family as early as 1966. The holiday was later introduced into popular culture by O’Keefe’s screenwriter son Daniel on an episode of Seinfeld. The holiday’s celebration, as it was shown on Seinfeld, included an unadorned aluminum “Festivus pole,” practices such as the “Airing of Grievances” and “Feats of Strength,” and the labeling of easily explainable events as “Festivus miracles.”
So today I have chosen to dress as Frank Costanza holding the infamous aluminum pole. Happy Festivus!

For the ninth day of Christmas, I have decided to take on the theme of Mrs Claus. Please note that I have opted to portray Mrs Claus in her early years when she was young and hot. So hot that even in the cold, cold snow of the north pole she wore short skirts.
