Jo and Day lugged home a total of eight costumes from the concert.
Here’s an inventory.
Jo in Day’s froggie suit. It’s her favourite costume of the lot. Her own tight frilly dresses, apart from the one time she wore it on stage and one more time at home when we were fooling around with the outfits, she refuses to wear them.
Jo in toga, KK in Day’s froggie cap and Day’s boxers (yes, one of Day’s costumes was a pair of tacked boxers which KK promptly untacked and wore), Day in his toga.
Jo in her “polka dot dress” and Lu in the soft velvet froggie boots.
Day in his wushu outfit and Jo in her “rainbow dress”.
Jo in her yellow dress and Lu in the “rainbow dress”.
I stuffed the entire lot into a drawer where they can play dress-up if they so wish.
Lu has developed an obsession with one of Jo’s dresses on the simple basis that it is her all-time favourite colour: Blue.
She has worn it every single day.
She wears it to sleep.
She wears it out.
* Running around Ikea in The Dress.
It’s bloody uncomfortable and I worry the rough material will chafe her skin, which is under eczema attack again.
So I make her wear it over her clothes so it won't come into direct contact, which makes it very hot.
But she doesn’t care!
She wears it and twirls around pretending she is a ballerina!
