Working away we have one day off every fortnight - the RDO - and it is a much celebrated event, usually involving copious and excessive alcohol consumption by 85% of the camp. This RDO Friday night we're celebrating a bevvy of January birthdays including mine from the 9th!
To make it particularly special we've set a Creatures of the Night dress up theme - for anything that comes out at night!
Here are some of the plans we've made up for costumes, in whiteboard drawn comic form...
My outfit (which I made up on my lovely new sewing machine over the holidays) is a Night Faery:
Big black wings - my skirt of sparkly green, black and silver satins - black top with the coloured satins sewn around the neckline
My fabulous mate Jo is similarly attired, as a Dark angel...
Big black wings - black singlet (it's super hot up here, remember?) - tiny black tutu with red trim - black knee legth tights for modesty (not drawn)
And Jen decided to go for something a little different - a pirate wench!
Red skull bandana - roughed up jeans with oversized belt buckle - big gold hoop earrings - sword!
I'm very excited :) Only two more sleeps til we get to play dress ups! it really is fun being a child inside - I highly recommend it *grin*
