So I did promise I would take photos of our Aussie Day at work celebration. We do win a lunch put on by work if we were the best themed department and I think to be honest we probably spent more money decorating the place than what the lunch will be worth, but hey it was pretty fun! We themed it backyard BBQ!!
So I ended up making the Vogue 1300 Dress as seen in my previous post and matched it with a heap of Aussie accessories! I found some really cool red tights in David Jones which made it look pretty awesome. I took some photos in the morning before I left but them my boss bought in her children's face paint and ended up painting our faces so I thought I would take some more photos of the full costume. Sorry for the overexposure on the shots below it was pretty dark today because we finally had rain in Brissy..hooray!
Notice my crimped hair!! Bit 80's but any excuse to do this and I will!
How cool is face paint by the way! I had to take a close up of my face before I washed it all off.
So what did you think??!! Would you wear something like this on your celebration day?
I'd love to see any links to costumes you have made if you can comment them to me!! Dress up is so fun!
Hope you got a good laugh out of this!!
