I'm going to a big party next week where the theme is "dress as you're favourite tube station" (hey, it wasn't my idea). Anyway, my boyfriend and I are going as Elephant and Castle - I've already started on a Papier Mache Elephant head for him. But I could do with some suggestions as to how I am going to go as a "Castle".
I toyed with the idea of going as a Princess and just faking it, but I'd rather manage the real thing.
So any ideas - baring in mind I'm broke, much appreciated....
Just something all-enveloping in a certain shade of pink [check on site for correct shade], with a few cheap t-shirts, DVDs, sunglasses, factory second shoes, etc., etc., pinned to it should capture a bit of the current ambience of the Elephant.
I had the same thing a while ago, I wore a grey skirt that I aready had and bought a really cheap gray vest top. I drew a porcullis on the frount of the top with felt tips and attached a cheap plastic toy knight in frount of it and made a draw bridge out of a bit of cardboard and a couple of bits of thread, finnished off with some cardboard turrets on my head! Extra fabric to cover the turrets and draw bridge came from another cheap vest top, with enough left over to make the elephants ears.
hmm, clearly I'm a frustrated blue peter presenter.
