If you've been reading my last few My Creative Space posts you know I've been working on an outfit for a friends 40th birthday party. The theme was Heroes and Villians and I decided to go as Poison Ivy. After much googling and creative thinking I came up with a plan to make a dress (as lycra just wasn't going to happen) with lots of fabric leaves sewn on..................... About a quarter of the way through this I was doubting myself and wondering if I had the stamina to finish it. I did and actually really loved making it.
The party was hysterically funny and the most fun I have had in so long. I caught up with friends I hadn't seen in years and everyone let loose and had a ball. As you can see by the photos things got a bit messy by the end of the evening. Wonder Woman did a few "Nudie Runs" which considering it was a freezing cold night was incredibly brave................or stupid???
Bring on the next 40th birthday party I say!
