Flashback Friday - Week 3 - Fancy Dress!

We have a theme this week, fancy dress! I had a choice of the above shot or me with a sheet over my head as a ghost, I went for this shot! I am the witch, please note the very detailed wand, *ahem* thats a star just stuck on the end of a cardboard tube! The white figure next to me is my sister. Propping up the counter at Textile Trader's one post then a white cat the next! It was taken in 1981, when we lived in Karratha. I don't even remember going trick or treating but this is why we are dressed up. Look at the neighbours boat in the background! Mum could have just moved around a bit and got a nice green background, but instead we have a boat!

Just like the car in the back of my fancy dress flashback! Must have been the era for including vehicles and boats in fancy dress pics...

Helen said...

Ohhhhh, Mum's writing on the back said Helen and Andrea! But I think your right Ad, it must be Scott as you weren't that tall at 6!

I love how things used to be so simple (re wand) I had to make a wand for my daughters fairy costume, and it absolutely had to have a pink metallic fabric, sparkles, glitter, and at least 3 different colored ribbons attached. I had to draw the line at the magic fairy dust request that could turn people into frogs.
