Day 332: Return of the Jedi

On May 25, 1983, Star Wars: Return of the Jedi was released. While I have done a Star Wars theme previously, today I take on Return of the Jedi as my theme, with my costume representing an event within it specifically – the event obviously being Han Solo frozen in carbonite.

Day 328: Mr. T

  Today is Mr. T’s birthday, who turns 60! Which is why today’s theme is Mr. T.

Day 323: Top Gun

Day 224: Monopoly

On February 6th 1935, the board game Monopoly first went on sale. Before being bought by Parker Brothers, the game was called “The Landlord’s Game” and was created by Elizabeth Magie to teach economy and land value tax. Initially Parker Brothers turned down the board game commenting that it was too complicated and took too long to finish. They…

Day 215: Pac Man

Today I take on the user suggestion of Pac Man from Kylie3036. I’ve gone for the main yellow character which I’ve made from putting crete paper over a hula hoop and attaching a string to it so that it can sit around my neck. This is the cheapest and easiest way to make a Pac Man…

Day 203: John Carpenter

January 16 is John Carpenter’s birthday. As a child I grew up watching (and re-watching) John Carpenter films, namely Big Trouble in Little China. When my brothers and I would have to hang up the washing, at the end when the basket was empty, one of us would ALWAYS put the basket on top of…

Day 202: Humanitarian Day

January 15 is one of three emancipation days of respect which honours the memory of Martin Luther King, Jr. So today rather than dress as Martin Luther King, I wouldn’t do it justice, I’ve decided to dress up as another great celebrity humanitarian – Princess Diana. I have chosen to dress as Diana in what was…

Day 199: Pippi Longstocking

Today I take on another users suggestion; rhiannac xxxx suggested that I take on the theme of Pippi Longstocking. As many would know the crux of this outfit is in Pippi’s red hair, to achieve the ‘stick out’ angle of the ponytails, I wrapped the hair around bent coat-hanger wire.   Photo credit: Billy Rubin…

Day 198: Pretty In Pink

Today I thought I would take on a user suggested theme. Belinda has suggested that I take on Pretty in Pink, so I have decided to dress as the main character Andie (Molly Ringwald). As you can see from the main image, I have attempted to re-create the look as seen in one of the…
