Friday Night Nemo

The other night I dressed up for the first time in ages. I was invited to a fancy dress party with an ocean theme. It was a colleague of mine who suggested Nemo, I'm not sure why. But I could easily picture myself as the adorable little clown fish. So I made fins out of rubber, in a double layer sandwiched over a wire skeleton. I stuck them on with Mastix spirit gum, and painted my face in Kryolan Supra Colour (grease paint). It was a success! Unfortunately there was no prize for best outfit (I would have won it, fins down).
