Day 264: Tina Fey

March 18 is Tina Fey’s birthday, so I have taken on that as my theme today, of course dressing as the most well-known of all her characters – Liz Lemon from 30 Rock. And now for some of my favourite Liz Lemon quotes: “There ain’t no party like a Liz Lemon party ’cause a Liz…

Day 262: Kylie Minogue

Today is my friends 30th birthday, as a present to her on this momentous day I have decided to dedicate today’s theme and costume to an idol of hers – Kylie Minogue. Now Kylie Minogue has had a long career spanning many different phases and looks, but none more dramatic than THAT white outfit in…

Day 243: Lucha Libre

Today I have decided to take on the user-suggested theme of Lucha Libre from Charlie. Lucha Libre is more informally known as Mexican wrestling. Many of you may have been introduced to it through the film Nacho Libre. Mexican wrestling is characterised by colourful, full face masks that are used to disguise the wrestlers and if removed…

Day 237: Kick Ass

Today I have taken on the user suggested theme of Kick Ass from Cilla. With that as my theme I have dressed up as Hit Girl – the young, smart ass vigilante who was trained by her father (played by Nick Cage) to be a costumed superhero/assassin. Photo credit: Billy Rubin Purple Wig: Ebay Purple…

Day 235: Paris Hilton

February 17 is Paris Hilton’s birthday. Remember her? Remember ‘that’s hawt”? Good times, back in the early noughties. The awkward lean, duck lips combo is all because of her folks. I once said that I wanted to do for costumes what Paris Hilton did for sex tapes. Let’s hope if I do, there is a big…

Day 218: Backward Day

January 31 is Backward day, so I have decided to dress as Backwards Man from the Tom Green film, Freddy Got Fingered. He can walk backwards as fast as you can.   Photo credit: Billy Rubin   Black Suit: My Brother’s White Shirt: Cotton On Black Tie: Base Warehouse Black Shoes: Fabiani (My Brother’s) Black Briefcase: My Brother’s…

Day 214: Nanny McPhee

On January 27, 2006 Nanny McPhee was released. Rather fitting with the current gloomy, rainy, London-esque weather I have dressed up as Nanny McPhee, warts and all. It was almost too easy achieving this look with only the tiniest of makeup.   Photo credit: Holmes   Black Lace Top: Tres Beau (My Mother’s) Black Long Skirt: Hotline (My Mother’s) Black…

Day 211: Ed Helms

January 24 is Ed Helms birthday, you would most likely recognise Helms for his role as Stu from The Hangover films. So today I have decided to dress as Stu from the second Hangover film where it is the night after his buck’s night and awakes with a face tattoo. To get the full effect…

Day 207: Underworld

Underworld Awakening was released on January 19 last year. For some reason when I was doing my planning for the week I had this down as a release date of January 20 (today). A day late or not, Underworld is my theme for today and I have decided to dress up as Kate Beckinsale’s character Selene. Photo…
