MasterM and the Giraffe Costume

You have all been wonderful friends
over the past two weeks
and as a (dubious) treat
I thought I would share a glimpse
into the life of a teenager.

MasterM was invited to a Circus Party
after his exams finished.
He was told to come as a Giraffe.
So he did.
As you do.

Yesterday I was tidying his room
(don't ask why - just accept that I was)
and guess what I found?
His HOMEMADE Giraffe Costume
- this blog is almost a Craft blog these days! -

He tells me that he went with his friend the Bear
and because they were staying overnight
the Bear just slept in his Bear suit.
MasterM found a cast-off Horse suit
and slept in that with his feet in the head.

No pictures of that - alas!

And that my dear is why you do not look through a teenager's room. What a clever boy you have!

Good grief!

Guffawing here. Waking up the household.

Need to make giraffe costume straight away!

But isn't that horse's head thing a touch too 'Godfather' for comfort?

I should add that we made a visit to Sicily on the back of MasterM being given the Godfather trilogy for Christmas. Seemed as good a reason as any other

Love the written comments on the costume - very inventive

In Italy I am sure that it would have a Cor ! Leone costume rather than a giraffe get-up. Might explain why MasterM's head has been slightly in the clouds recently though ;-)

My brother once dressed up as a giraffe. It is the most infamous of my Mum's costume creations! I blogged about it once...if I can find the link I'll email it to you.

Very, very good. I dread the having-to-clean-a-teenage-boy's- bedroom-days that lurk on the horizon. As long as nothing is actually growing in there I hope I'll be ok with the mess!

Very clever. How do they think up these things?

Thank goodness I have twn+ years before I am cleaning up my then to be teenage boy's room. But you have to give it to him for creativity!
