Christmas Fancy Dress 2012

Every year we get together with all of our friends on the last Saturday before Christmas Day and go on a fancy dress pub crawl around Kenilworth. This year was extra special as it's our tenth year! We started out as a small group, and others have joined or left over the years, but there still a fair few of us who have been going since the very first year. Over the ten years our lives have changed. We've even had a few baby visitors including our very own Small Person in his first year.

For the tenth year we had a theme of a 'Tenuous link'. so the character or the film your character was from had to start with one of you initials. Mine was 'The Vengeance of Fu Manchu'. Mr Bogert had 'Avengers Assemble'.

I thought I'd share a few piccies from the night:

Jessica Rabbit and 'her' brother Jareth the Goblin King
Olive Oil and her hubby Popeye
Ooompa Loompa, Storm Trooper, Plug, Jelly Fish, Blackadder, Predator, Rudolph, Sateen from Moulin Rouge, Jessica Rabbit, Poison Ivy, Popeye and Olive Oil, Beaker, Pinocchio, Jareth, Boobies, Orinocco the Womble, Corpse Bride, Tin Tin, Fu Manchu, Superman,Posh Spice, Ginger Spice, Say Puffed Marshmallow Man.
Captain America, Womble, Tin Tin and Corpse Bride.

Handing over the crown to...
... Ms Jessica Rabbit.

Scary Spice, Corpse Bride, Men in Black (Agent 'M')

Pair of Boobies!
Miss Pacman.
Captain America - AKA Mr Bogert.

Pinocchio(with his nose around his neck!) and Predator.

Ginger Spice and Posh Spice.
Blackadder and Sateen
Our friend John has organised the festivities every year, but has decided 10 is a good number to end on, so he has passed the torch to Jim (also known as Jessica this last Saturday!) to carry on, hopefully, for another 10 years. We had a great conversation about how when we're in our 80s we can all come out dressed as the latest hip young singers/actors/characters that we don't understand :D
