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 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…

Day 259: Mexican

Day 230: Christina Ricci

February 12 is Christina Ricci’s birthday, so today I have decided to dress up as one of my favourite characters as portrayed by Miss Ricci – Wednesday Addams. That whole movie was perfectly cast to be honest, I hope to one day be as hot of a Mortica as Angelica Houston was. But for now…

Day 102: Oktoberfest

Today is the last day of Oktoberfest so I have decided to dress as a beer maiden and drink Mango beer. Sometimes life is grand….and if you’re wondering how I got my hair like this, I braided it with a pipe cleaner in it and then bent it into shape.   Photo credit: Billy Rubin…

Day 35: World Scout Day

August 1st celebrates the anniversary of the first day of the Brownsea Island Camp in 1907, where Robert Baden-Powell began scouting. It is known as World Scout Day. While I have never been a scout, I feel as if I am in spirit because I’m always prepared (seriously, like organised to the shizzle) and I like cookies….
