Send in the clowns.

This is the final party post, I SWEAR. But come on. You want to see what everyone else was wearing, right? Seriously, circus fancy dress is the ultimate in fancy dress. I wanted a theme that everyone could think of something for, and I think I achieved that - it wasn't too difficult or expensive, either. I said in my invite 'Slap on some glitter and call yourself an acrobat' which is basically what I did, but everyone else made a touch more effort.

Which brings me to my point. Lately, I've had some interesting blogging emails. Some awesome, some weird - like the free dental consultation I got offered the other day. Huh. Anyhoo, this is about one that was awesomely weird and well timed. Jokers Masquerade asked me if I would review one of their costumes. At first I was like 'OMG AMAZING TIMING' and then it dawned on me that, er, I had that beautiful sequin dress to wear and an outfit change probably wasn't going to happen. So I asked if I could have a guest outfit poster, and was told that yes, yes I could. So I dragged my friend Gem into the seedy world of blogging, hooked her up with a Boo Boo The Clown costume and this was the result:

Gem's hat, dress & tights c/o Jokers Masquerade

I think that might be the cutest clown outfit I've ever seen. My work friends seriously went all out. I love how colourful they all are!

Ah, and these were some of my favourite costumes...

I loved Sha's cute clown ensemble. Plus, polka dots are always a win.
Anne, a seriously foxy big cat.
Liam, Claire and Marika, in monochrome fabulousness.
Lenny's amazing knife thrower's assistant - SHE MADE THAT.
Amy and Hayley. Hayley's lion outfit also came from Jokers, whereas Amy already owned that jacket. Want it!
Dan basically looks like a lion all the time anyway, so I kind of like that his proper costume didn't turn up.
A rare photo of Russ (who took most of these photos). Throwing knives.

Also, check out A Thrifty Mrs' post on her outfit - I didn't get a picture sadly but her makeup is amazing.

Oh, and Mark and James got told off for their scary clown costumes. I SPECIFICALLY SAID NO SCARY CLOWNS.
