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!

Today is Valentine’s day, a day where people express their love for one another in honour of St. Valentine who secretly wed soldiers who were forbidden to marry their lovers. In honour of this, I have dressed up as Cupid, the God of desire, erotic love and affection, often depicted as a cute cherub with a bow and arrow.
