Eat your heart out Carmen Miranda

My favourite gadget is my glue gun. Sad I know, but having grown up as a child who loved making things without one, I’ve learnt to embrace the wonders of this useful tool. I glued this together for a fancy dress in just 3 hours.

I think that the little green aliens are a special extra touch too, but they wouldn’t let me glue them in place.

    Do you make those hats to order? πŸ˜‰

    • Never really thought about it. I made it for a fancy dress work function last year. I’ve always wanted one.

        You mean it’s REAL?! I thought it was Photoshop’d! Well I really think it’s quite spectacular. Full marks, bravo. You should wear it every day πŸ˜€

      • Yep – real (made from real plastic fruit and material flowers). I should wear it down the street to see the reaction, but I’m too chicken. Instead, I’ve been planting the seed with the work end of year Xmas party organisers of a fancy dress theme (last year was my partner’s company). Marti πŸ˜‰
