Clowning Around

I have been in two minds if to post about this or not. I finally decided to, mainly as it was such a fun event for everyone who attended, despite how ridiculous I look in the photo below.

Here I am with Reg “The Bearded Lady”, my make-up was courtesy of the ever talented Mrs Saul:

The Circus themed party was the latest in a long line of theme parties that Duncan (my soon to be new villa-mate) was famous for holding. Previous parties themes have included “Hawiian Nights”, “Heaven and Hell” and “Jungle Fever” sadly I had missed the last couple due to business trips but I was at the circus party with bells on. Duncan always ensures that the villa is suitably themed for the event and this one was no different. The big clown face below marked the entrance to the party:

There was a special treat for some of the more young at heart, inside the villa was a large paddling pool filled with balls. Needless to say there was a huge ball fight later in the evening! Here some “clowns” are having a whole lot of fun:

It was great to see so many people get into the spirit of things and get dressed up. Below are some of my favourites from the evening. First – Catherine and Kate got dressed up as candy floss:

Lawrence “Zoron the Incredible” and Claire “High Flying Acrobat” came as the athletic couple:

Matt and Cynthia came as excellently made up mime-artistes:

I loved Matt’s “The Wolf Boy” painstaking make up, alongside Abi’s excellent clown outfit

It was a fantastic night had by all – and with the advent of Facebook all my friends around the world could see we had one excellent, fun filled evening the following day. I am all ready looking forward to the next one, now my hang over has worn off.
