Dubai's Desperate Housewife

Trials and traumas of a full-time mum in Dubai

World Book Day – the final costume

leave a comment »

So, my baptism by fire into the world of homemade dress-up costumes is over. DD is going to school tomorrow dressed as…. Angelina Ballerina.

Angelina - the genuine mousling


It’s not her favourite book, not by a long shot, and she hasn’t watched the DVDs since she was about three, but I was able to cobble the outfit together from things she already owned, plus Dhs 12.50 (£2) for some face paints. All I had to do was make a white tail from a white sock stuffed with more white socks, make the ears from paper and attach them to a suitable headband – and I have to say, sitting in the sunny kitchen with the breeze wafting in, a cup of tea and the radio on, the cutting and sticking was [whispers] quite pleasant.

Angelina – my version
