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?)
And we had a vampire baby with a taste for the heavy stuff..
I didn’t get a good pic of Sandeep – he was the body in the bodysnatcher’s sack..
And this is my best one of Steff..
It was interesting dealing with such characters..Hannibal was permanently hungry..
Death was having a love-in with David..
Even though David kept telling him to f-off…
And guess what..we won!!!
It was a huge hurrah for the mad and happily twisted..
