Alahai malunya I sebab ramai yang nak tengok my costume ‘creation’, hehehe. For your information, I’m not a genius when it comes to creating costumes at such a short notice and out of thin air :-). Actually, I’m just not a genius, fullstop……hehehehe. But since we live here and the Little Misses go to school here and they love performing skits at school so I do occasionally have to use my ‘creativity’ to make costumes for them. When we were living in Adelaide and Miss soon-to-be-10 attended the public school there, lagi lah banyak costumes yang I had to ‘create’ from scratch, hehehehe. Dah lah the ‘creative’ side of my brains are not that well developed so kadang2 tu memang lah ntah apa2 aje costumes yang turned out :-). As long as the Little Misses are happy with my creations, that’s all that matters right :-). Some people will just buy the costumes but we would rather use the money on something else so nak tak nak terpaksalah Mummy memerah otak mereka/ menjahit/membega costumes yang diaorang nak. I wonder why the Little Misses never asked their Dad to make the costumes for them, hahahahaha……
So far, Miss 5 belum lagi kena buat any costume apart from fairy costumes which are just so easy as long as you have the wings ready, hehehe. In the Little Misses room, there’s this big plastic basket full of old clothes for their dressing up games. Most of the stuff are my old tops and scarves and sarongs so bila dah takde idea nak buat costume, I just selongkar the plastic basket hoping to find old clothes that I can bega2 to make into a ‘new’ one, senang kan, hehehehe…..

I found this old photo of Miss soon-to-be-10 when she was 7 as Saucepan Man from ‘the faraway tree’ by Enid Blyton. Jenuh I nak membuat all the saucepans and the pans to tie around her body tu! Nak bagi the real saucepans, berat giler, sian pulak dia nanti asik terantuk aje kat saucepans tu so I made them out of thick papers.
