"Easy now fuzzy little man peach. You ever drunk Bailey's from a shoe?"

Well I was going to enter my costume but I was so busy preparing Mr Loops outfit and making food and whatnot that it never got properly finished, and I looked hideous anyways, and I'm sure noone knew who I was anyways!!  So here is Mr Loops as Old Gregg instead Cheesy  Unfortunately none of our friends at the party watch The Mighty Boosh (fools that they are) so had no idea who he was supposed to be, but they loved the costume regardless!!



The outfit wasn't wholly crafted, but here's the details:
Seaweed wig - made from various colours of felt all sewn together, took freakin ages!
Jacket - tuxedo jacket already owned, sprayed with silver, sparkly, and green spray paints
Shirt - cheappo bought one
Tie - already owned
Glove - exfoliating glove from the chemists (he should technically have a webbed left hand but I didn't have time to deal with that Sad)
Tutu - made from tulle net stuff and elastic, I think he loved wearing it, I don't think his dad was amused seeing him in a tutu and tights though...
Tights - cheappo ones we found that have a kinda scaly look to them!

Check out the tiny Baileys in a shoe that we found in Sainsburys to go with his outfit!!!



"I've got a mangina! I'M OLD GREEEEEEEEGG!"



Apologies for the pants shot above, the mangina light was probably best shot from through the tutu rather than a direct look at it but he insisted on flashing me!

Old Gregg chatting with a zombie hobo at the party.




Hope you like it anyways, Mr Loops isn't a fan of fancy dress parties, but he did LOOOVE his outfit Cheesy

TTFN
Loops  Cool

EDIT:
Reference piccies for those that haven't seen Old Gregg

He wanted to wear his costume to the supermarket today but he was worried him and his glowing man bits might get arrested, lol!!

I know eh, it was a good evening albeit very drunky!  How was your head Heff??

....did he do any watercolors? Total win.

He had planned to do some piccies, or at least have a sheet of beige paper so that he could show people a picture that's as close as you can get to baileys without your eyes getting wet Grin  But he was too lazy in the end and just stuck with his baileys in a shoe!

Love it! He looks just like him, and I love the mangina!

I was totally shocked at how well it worked in the end, especially the wig and the jacket, he totally could have just been caught on a fishing hook!!  After a few drinks we made our friends all sit through that Boosh episode just so that they could appreciate his costume better Wink
