7th Feb 2011 (Monday)

Finished up Lara's birthday party costume: theme, 'jungle disco'. Avid readers will recall there were no suitable hire-or-buy options, so we ended up with a meter of leopard-print fabric and some tulle.

Well, it's done. A completely insane article of clothing with a rabid personality disorder: can't decide whether it's a Tarzan outfit, a ballgown or a tutu. She loves it.

PLUS we managed to find a downloadable copy of the Toybox version of 'Barbie Girl' that's called : “Tarzan and Jane”...


  1. I was wondering how you were going to manage to put together a leopard costume which would not cook the Non wearing it on a 43 degree afternoon. I thought you might run up an off the shoulder number but I cannot imagine what you did with the tulle, mosquito netting perhaps?
    She was really lovely when we spoke on Friday night, I don't think I have ever heard her talk so much before and so clearly. She is so excited about her birthday party, I hope it all turns out to her satisfaction and that her mother is not completely knackered by the time it is over.
    Love and XXXXX

  2. Off the shoulder and off the back! Tulle is for the underskirt, naturally. Mind you might serve a dual purpose of keeping the mozzies at bay, I guess...
