Carnival Costumes

It was our village carnival on 24th September, and my children all wanted to join in.  Luckily the primary school had the theme of Where’s Wally, so all we had to do was find costumes in red and white stripes with bobble hats – easy.

Sadly the theme my sons chose was a bit more challenging.


Batman Villains – Jack (my eldest) is the Riddler and Harry is the Joker.  Luckily I found a couple of pairs of light jeans in the charity shop, and made the jackets from an old bedsheet.  We then dyed them, and along with 2 old green t-shirts (converted into waistcoats) and a couple of bright t-shirts for underneath, their costumes were complete.  We couldn’t find any green hairspray for Harry’s hair, but we discovered that by covering it in gel, we could then add green face-paint to colour it.

They came second in the afternoon parade (beaten by some VERY cute 4 year old smurfs!)  But in the evening they won 1st place.  Yippeeeeee!

Made it all worth while really.
