Fancy Dress Friday

September 21, 2009 in Odd stuff | Comments (0)


Well… I entered Fancy Dress Friday on Twitter for the first time this week. I used a photograph from a fancy dress party that I went to a few years back of me dressed as the Grim Reaper.

I painted the bones myself onto a black long sleeved top and black leggings. Being the Biology geek that I am, I tried to make sure the bones were as anatomically correct as I could ;) The only thing I didn’t do was the hands. I bought them from a store.

Here’s the finished outfit.


Suprisingly, I won. Thanks to TatooedMummy for chosing me!

But of course, once I won, Kanye West interrupted my acceptance speech to say Beyonces costume was better. :)

Which means that I am now the judge for next week’s Fancy Dress Friday.

Here are the rules:

Change your profile pic on Twitter on Friday to one of you in fancy dress. Tweet about it using the #fancydressfriday hash tag.

At 10pm or there abouts (BST) I will judge the winner – the winner must then keep their avatar in fancy dress for the next week and then judge on the following Friday….. all clear? (It will be close to 10pm, but I’ll be watching Derren Brown first!)

Don’t forget to unprotect your tweets for the day if you are normally protected or I can’t find you in the tag search…..
