Dr Zoidberg from Futurama Costume

One week left! On ebay I found this face mask that was so perfect for a Dr Zoidberg Costume that I couldn’t help but buy it and go on the hunt to find the rest of the outfit. Eventually I was able to source the white lab coat from my partners school and the scrubs…

Day 51: C-Bomb

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…

Day 49: Cats

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.   Photo Credit: C-Bomb   Cat Ears: IKEA Grey…

Day 47: International Left Handers Day

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!   Photo Credit: C-Bomb  …

Day 46: International Youth Day

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…

Day 44: Jazz Aficionado

As suggested by There’s a 21st Century? I have dressed up as a Jazz Aficionado, namely a Jazz singer. And because of it all day I’ve had the Simpsons Jazz Man song stuck in my head: When the jazz man testifies, the faithless man believes – JAZZ MAN!   Photo Credit: C-Bomb   Black Off Shoulder Dress:…

Day 43: Whitney Houston

Today is the birthday of “the voice” Whitney Houston (RIP). With this I have decided to dress up in one of her most famous outfits from the Queen of the Night film clip back when she was on top.   Photo Credit: C-Bomb   Black Bob Wig: Spotlight Silver Headpiece: Homemade (Silver paper cut and wrapped around…

Day 42: Charlize Theron

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…

Day 41: Julie and Julia

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…

Day 40: John Hughes

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…
