One of Katie's friends; Hannah turned 23 on Boxing Day so we had all arranged to go out in fancy dress on the Friday. Me, Katie and Sharon headed into Randwick to the massive fancy dress shop in search for either some inspiration or a really cool outfit. Stef had stayed at Toni little feet's the night before so they both came and met us in the shop. We spent hours and hours going through all the clothes, there was literally about 200 racks of clothes, top and bottom, plus bookshelves full of shoes, a whole room full of wigs and headdresses and a million drawers full of accessories.. we had the time of our lives!! I could of spent the whole day in there and found myself annoyed that we hadn't got there earlier!

Stef made a great Christmas tree and I tried the Sideshow Bob look but I don't think ginger really suits me.

I decided I wanted to find something comical, a character rather than just a cowgirl or playboy bunny that the majority pull off when anyone mentions 'fancy dress'.

Then I found it.. the costumes of costumes.. Minnie Mouse. Perfect. I tried it on and with a bit of a squeeze and a Katie's kind helping hand I managed to get the huge (but very small corset) dress over my head and strapped up. The imagination started rolling after that with thoughts of white gloves, a matching white handbag, a black nose and huge great big eyelashes.

The outfit pulled together in the end, I got some white gloves and some ears out of the accessories drawer (after spending 3 hours trying to find a pair of gloves that match). Some eyelashes from a chemist and a white handbag from a cheap shop for 50 cents!! Bargain!! Katie leant me her red circle earrings and I got a fake pearl necklace, cut it in half so it was much shorted and then tied it around the back of my neck. Perfect.

I didn't know what to do with my hair, so it kind of just got left. Minnie doesn't really have hair so it was hard to know what to do!!

Hannah and the girls she lived with all came over to Katie's house and we all had a few drinks together and then walked down to CBH together.

Everyone had made a real effort with their outfits and all looked brilliant!! Loads of people kept asking us to have a picture taken with us! Although, I did get the hump because they kept calling me Mickey Mouse.. since when did Mickey wear a dress??!?! Eh eh eh??? Tell me when!!!

Anyhoo, we had a really nice night, got some amusing pictures and munched on hot dogs at stupid o'clock in the morning before retiring to bed.
