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.

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 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.
Yesterday was Charlize Theron’s birthday. In honour of this today I have dressed up as my favourite Charlize Theron character – Rita Leeds from Arrested Development. For anyone who hasn’t seen the show, fix this, Arrested Development is brilliant. And yes, I know I look like a nut, but her character was mentally challenged, so it just means I’m doing it right.
In 2009 the film Julie and Julia was released. It chronicles the life of chef Julia Child in the early years of her culinary career with the life of young New Yorker Julie Powell, who aspires to cook all 524 recipes in Child’s cookbook in 365 days. A challenge she described on her popular blog that would make her a published author. Purely on the parallels alone I had to take this film on as a theme and with that I have dressed up as Julia – the chef that inspires Julie’s personal challenge blog.
The most difficult bit was pinning my hair to look short and curly.
On this day in 2009, John Hughes died at age 59. John Hughes would have to be one of my favourite directors of all time. I still remember the first time I watch The Breakfast Club, as most people would. In honour of this great film and director I have decided to dress up as Molly Ringwald’s character Claire.
