Since the boys started school, most "dressing up" days have been the same despite the years between the boys. We've had Victorian days, Tudor days and Greek days. They've been Character's from books for World Book Day, not forgetting all the Christmas play's where over the years they've been Sheep, Stars, Rudolph, Joseph...and even an Angel...which someone wasn't impressed with.
We've also been Knights, Kings, Ugly Sisters, Policemen, Blue's Brothers and Cowboys.
Last year was a new one...........Hobbit day. Oh yes, they were reading the Hobbit and someone decided that they would introduce a Hobbit day. I mean...really!! With no "already to hand" outfit from previous years...we had to get creative. I searched the internet for Hobbit outfits and you know they are so expensive. The outfits and images did remind me that we had an adults Pirate and Wench outfit hanging in the wardrobe (oh yes! ....a story for another day :)! )
So the bloomers looked like full length trousers on him and the waistcoat was more like a cloak. The shirt has been previously used for Victorian and Tudor day's. All he needed was some elf ears and ....I think we pulled it off.
