Day 297: Craig David

Day 297: Craig David

Today is ANOTHER friends birthday, who has requested the theme of Craig David. So with this ghetto request I have decided to go for the classic Craig David look ala the album cover of his debut album, Born To Do It. Happy Birthday Ganga!

Day 296: Mad Scientist

Day 296: Mad Scientist

Today is I’m a Scientist’s birthday who has requested a Mad Scientist theme. When I thought of what costume I could create for this theme, I tried to think of the craziest thing I could come up with. Then I thought, what could be madder than a scientist who decapitated themselves in the name of science? Let me tell you, it is HARD to find ajar that can fit a human head, the closest I could get is what is in the picture, which kind of works, but I think all together, is quite the hilarious costume. The magic behind the costume is a white lab coat stuffed with a pillow that sits on my shoulders to have my head pop out of the lower buttons of the coat, couple with stapled and stuffed gloves.

Day 294: Posh Spice (Spice Girls Week)

Day 294: Posh Spice (Spice Girls Week)

 

 

April 17 is Victoria Beckham’s birthday and the reason that Spice Girls week has fallen over this particular week. So today I have dressed as Posh Spice,  my favourite Spice Girl. Yes, you read that right, she was my favourite. Why you ask? She was the most glamourous and lady-like, and as a chubby little tomboy she was all I ever wanted to become. (I think this costume is the closest I’ll ever come though).

For the third day of Spice Girls Week I take on the second Melanie of the group – Melanie Brown, a.k.a. Scary Spice. I can tell you this right now, I’m WELL over showing my midriff, unlike the Melanie’s I do not have the abs for this kind of get-up!

Day 292: Sporty Spice (Spice Girls Week)

Day 292: Sporty Spice (Spice Girls Week)

Today is the second day of Spice Girls Week and I am taking on my least favourite of the group – Sporty Spice – a.k.a. Melanie Chisholm. Why was she my least favourite you ask? Her voice. It was too nasal for my liking. But I really liked when she did that duet with Bryan Adams. Conundrum. ANYWAY, that was my random (personal) Spice Girls fun fact for the day. Hope it spiced up your life.

Day 290: Brooch

Day 290: Brooch

Today is PatchworkDan‘s birthday party which has a brooch theme.  Simple enough – wear a brooch and you’re done… right? Not when you’re me. Initially I thought of going as the Queen, but then I thought of the mockingjay pin brooch from The Hunger Games and I knew that I had to come as Katniss Everdeen. Happy Birthday PatchworkDan! And may the odds for ever be in your favour!

Day 289: Magda Szubanski

Day 289: Magda Szubanski


April 12 is Magda Szubanski’s birthday. Over the years Magda has taken on a lot of iconic characters so choosing one to re-create for the blog was a hard choice. In the end I went with the character of Sharon Strzelecki from Kath and Kim, circa pash rash. It worries me that pushing my head into my neck produces so many chins.
