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 253: Sailor Moon

On March 7, 1992 Sailor Moon first aired in Japan. In celebration of the effect this show had on any girl growing up in the 90’s, I have decided to dress up as Sailor Moon today. Now sing-a-long with me: Fighting evil by moonlight Winning love by daylight Never running from a real fight She…
