Olive Oyl from Popeye Costume

Like most people I grew up watching Popeye, so today I’ve dressed up as Olive Oyl. It’s a great simple costume to put together – all you need is a red jumper and a black skirt! Photo: Billy Rubin Red jumper: Uniqlo with doily trimmings Black skirt: Target with yellow paper trim taped on White…

Day 347: Natalie Portman

June 9 is Natalie Portman’s birthday. I was spoilt for choice with characters I could dress up as today, but none more dramatic than Nina as the black swan from Black Swan. The intense make-up took about 40 minutes, but looked amazing and pretty spot on if I do say so myself. Photo credit: Holmes…

Day 336: Big Bird

Today is my friend Toms’ birthday. Toms helped me get on Sunrise, so I asked him if there was a theme he would like me to take for his birthday as a thank you, and he requested Big Bird….yesterday. So here is half a day turn-around Bird Bird costume. Photo  credit: The Stephanacci Sequence Big…

Day 267: Twitter

In March 21, 2006 Twitter, the social networking site, was founded. In celebration of Twitters seventh birthday today I have decided to dress up as the twitter bird. It’s crazy how much you can do with cardboard (mask) and garbage bags( wings). If you’re interested in creating your own bird mask just watch this video….

Day 242: Oscars

February 24 is the date of the 2013 Oscars, which is why I have decided to take it on as my theme for today. Given all the amazing gowns that have walked the red carpet glory over the years, I have decided to dress in a outlandish, but definitely more iconic dress worn by Bjork in 2001,…

Day 205: Winnie the Pooh

January 18 is Winnie the Pooh day as this is the day A.A. Milne’s, the creater, was born in 1882. With the theme of Winnie the Pooh I’ve decided to dress up as Owl…mostly because I already had an owl onesie. Don’t worry, the costume Gods punished me by making this day the hottest day in…

Day 185: Angry Birds

At a friends request today I have decided to take on the theme of Angry Birds – the popular iPhone game app – dressing as the angriest of birds, the red one. Thanks to @martyPantaloons for the costume lend. Photo credit: Billy Rubin Angry Birds costume: Borrowed from @martyPantaloons Black Leggings: Cotton On Yellow Boots: Ruby Shoes

Day 166: Raven-Symoné

Sometimes I’ll do something and think – that is so raven. And then other times I’ll do something and think – that way not very raven. Today is not one of those days. Today is Raven-Symoné’s birthday, so I have decided to dress up as a raven (bird)….did you see what I did there? Photo credit: Billy…

Day 114: Emu

Today I had a request from a workmate to dress as an emu, I agreed and then I found out that today is loud shirt day. I had made a promise though and just as a Lannister pays his debts, I keep my promises.   Photo credit: Herbnitz   Black V-Neck Top: Cotton On Black…
