The Quiz..


Our school quiz is a major fixture in the yearly calendar – it’s a good life in a bonker’s world, where winning the costume prize is the greatest accolade: It’s go large or go home…


So amongst the paint pots and drill bits the costumes were all handcrafted with love and terror and pinned, primed and pimped for the big night.

This year our theme was horror and freaks (who needs costumes some would say?)..


I was a killer-mer-maggot…carried by a zombie


Su was Freak girl carried by a scary friend..


The Husband was a head..being eaten by Hannibal Lecter..


We had Sweeney Todd complete with pies (how often as he been photo-bombed by Donald Trump?)

    Wait–someone addressed the “horror and freaks” theme by coming as Donald Trump?! Your costume was awesome but Trump would’ve gotten my vote!
