Patsy Stone from Absolutely Fabulous Costume

If you were like me and loved the English comedy, Absolutely Fabulous, then there is about a 99.9% chance that Patsy was your favourite. She was the bitch that you loved, no matter how terrible she was to Saffy and everybody in the world other than Eddy. So if you take this on as a…

Rosie the Robot from The Jetsons Costume

Today I am REALLY proud of my Rosie the Robot from The Jetsons costume! I have been planning this one for a while and have been quite lazy/procrastinating from actually making it. But now that I have finally put it together I’m really happy with it! Photo credit: Noodle Noo Silver robot head: Homemade from…

Day 362: Bewitched

  On June 24, 2005, Bewitched was released. The film was nowhere near the amazing that was the TV series, but in honour of my childhood years spent watching the show I have taken it on as a theme, dressing as the best character – Endora – Samantha’s mother. One of my favourite aspects of…

Day 360: Comedy Company

  Today is my brother’s birthday – Happy Birthday Holmes! So I asked him what theme he’s like me to take on, he said either Acropolis Now or Comedy Company, and seeing as how I couldn’t find a bedazzled bra so that I could dress as Effie, I chose Comedy Company and opted for a…

Day 316: Speed Racer

On May 9, 2008, the Speed Racer film was released.

Day 308: Spongebob Squarepants

On May 1, 1999, Spongebob Squarepants first aired in the US on Nickelodeon. When I used to work in Smaland in IKEA, only two movies would be able to attract a big enough crowd of children to keep the place in order when we were busy, one was Aladdin and the other was The Spongebob…

265: Final Countdown

Today I officially only have 100 days left of this crazy year-long challenge! As some would say – it’s the final countdown! *cue the Europe song* So that is my theme for today – Final Countdown, which makes me think of the song, which then makes me think of GOB from Arrested Development. GOB, or George Oscar Bluth…

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 258: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Today I am taking on the user-suggested theme of Teenage Mutant Ninja Tutles from Daniel, wearing the costume of the red ninja turtle – Raphael.

Day 254: Sci-Fi Convention and International Women’s Day

March 8 is International Women’s Day. It is also the first day/night of Secret Garden Festival which has been themed Sci-Fi Convention. So I thought I would kill two birds with one stone and dress up as She-Ra. (I later that night WON Female best-dressed as judged by the crowds applause. One of my proudest…
