MissM dresses up

MissM
I went to a great party on Saturday night...
The theme was ‘Childhood Heroes’.

MrsM
That sounds like fun!
Who did you choose?

MissM
Well...
I immediately thought of Xena, the Warrior Princess...


MrsM
Oh yes!
That would be great!
What was your costume like?

MissM
Well, I must admit it was quite tricky.
I couldn’t find a leather bra.

MrsM
I can see that would be a problem


MissM
So I went as Dumbo instead.

  1. From the sublime to the ridiulous or the other way round. As her Mum you were probably quite glad she changed her mind.

    Loves walking with your mum who knows her plants. Luckily she had a great photographer with her.

  2. An interesting choice - but I do believe that with MissM's shopping skills a leather bra *could* have been procured.

  3. Because ears and a trunk are everywhere this season....

  4. Sigh. I bet you regret not spending more time teaching her to sew even more now, eh?

  5. Always wise to have a back up plan in the event that a leather bra is unavailable...

    perhaps Xena has a brazier rather than a brassiere ;-)

  7. A brazier would certainly get a girl all hot under the collar.

  8. Well that would, of course, been a much easier costume option?

  9. O tempora, o mores ... !

    roughly translated as:

    Is that the time ? What costume shall I choose today ?

  10. From Xena to Dumbo eh? Yup, I agree with Bb, I am sure she "could have".
    Imagine you then posting a pic of MissM in a leather bra. MAYJAH.
    But what about Dumbo then? Can we see?

  11. I'm with Ali on this one. I can't believe large ears and a trunk are easier to find than a leather bra. Where was she shopping?!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Lol. The comments on this post are hilarious. I'm inclined to agree with the last poster though - how could a Dumbo costume be easier to find?

  13. I was thinking she was going to say Wonder Woman! Too funny.

  14. oh that is soooo sweet.

    I once went as a carrot. My sister was a banana... we didn't 'pull' that night. Not even in the 80s THAT was acceptable.

    It was a good lesson.

  15. I like her choice of childhood heroes. Different, but both good, I think.

  16. Who needs a leather bra when you can fly?

  17. Still very much hoping to see a Dumbo picture! K x

  18. I'm with Kristina... I was very much looking forward to the Dumbo picture!
