Willy Wonka with a green tongue from his smoothie.
Off to school in costume today for the character parade on the last day of the literacy festival. I was talking to another mum at school yesterday who said her son doesn't like dressing up. I'm so glad that my two do.
I whipped up a robe using this tutorial (very easy), we borrowed a scarf and embellished a $2 shop tie. The random bit of black fabric I had wasn't quite long enough (it was supposed to go to his ankles) but a thigh length robe is just fine. A collared shirt would have been good too but it was a bit last minute. The glasses are 3D ones from the movies with the lenses popped out.
Both boys are pretty exhausted after all the fun stuff that's been going on at school. Everyone is a little cranky and on edge. Bring on the holidays!
Last time they had it #1 went as Geronimo Stilton.
