Enid's dress up contest bloopers etc.!!

Crikey ....... I won Enid's dress-up competition.  It wasn't rigged ........ HONEST!!  Enid wasn't allowed to vote.  It sure was a lot of fun.  Everyone looked GREAT. I had a hard time voting. I so wanted to vote for everyone but I had to pick just one so, after a lot of thought, my vote went to Harlow.  I thought she went to a LOT of trouble and she was, after all, dressed-up, to the nines, aye???  Finley looked great in a little purple number complete with beads and Whitley ...... OMD!!  Did you see the cheeky grin??  AND all dressed up for halloween with the perfect pumpkin prop.  Frankie and Ernie sure looked great in their slouch hats. Looked as if they were waiting for a bus or something and Amber da Weenie was all spruced up in her Christmas outfit. What a pretty picture she was.  AND then there was Hazel ..... Fair dinkum ..... can she model an outfit or what??  She should be strutting her stuff in Paris or something. Crikey PARIS ...... that's Enid's and my city. I get all goose bumpy when I think of PARIS!!  Next came Hailey ..... now there's a girl who looked as if she wished she were a million miles away from where she was at that moment, aye??  Not at all comfortable like Hazel but did she EVER look good in her midnight blue sparkly number and the blonde curls.  Crikey ...... I bet it took a lot of product to get all that shine happening, aye??  And then ...... Molly ...... what to say about Molly!!  She would have been my second choice if I was allowed a second choice. I really had a tough time choosing.  Dear Molly ...... she looked an absolute picture!!  Next up was Mitch ..... fair dinkum ..... what did you think of Mitch??  How good did he look all dressed up for a night out with the blokes at his local pub, aye?? How many of him have you seen at your local?????  Mitch and Molly won last year.  I came second. This year I came first and Mitch came second. How funny is that??? After that came Molly ..... you know ...... the OTHER Molly ...... Molly the Wally!!  She was all gussied up with ribbons and stars and pretty as a picture and then came Dory lookin' as if she was on her way to Ascot or maybe to have cucumber sandwiches at high tea with  the Queen or something.  How elegant did she look?? Next up was this Chinese looking bloke. We won't mention him, aye??  Bit weird if you ask me!! AND then came Sarge ....... OMD!!  what to say here.  Crikey, mate ...... I feel for ya.  What a great sport you are, aye??  I particularly liked the pink beads and the basket ...... fair dinkum ...... what to say?????  Next was Casey ......  now I don't know too much about Casey but he looks like a good bloke and he  sure knows how to stand out in a crowd, aye??  Looks to me as if he was born to wear that outfit and Cinderella ......  I soooooooooo wanted to vote for Cinderella!!  How good did she look????????  Not sure that she was enjoying the experience but she certainly looked good. AND Stella Rose in her pink number and pearls.  What a sweetheart!! Don't you just wanna grab that little face and give those little cheeks a tweek or two. And Maggie Mae ...... didn't she look cute in her boa and so little and wee it almost enveloped her.  Last but not least ... Angus McConnell ...... how debonair did he look even if they did have to hold him down to get the picture.  It's alright Angus ...... you looked great, mate!!
It sure was a lot of fun, aye??  Hope you'll all be there next year and maybe we can get even more to participate.  Lets see if we can make it bigger and better every year, aye??  
Getting back to that Chinese looking bloke here's how it all happened. Mum mentioned the competition to Dad, who, by the way, doesn't show all that much interest in my blog. Mum had a few ideas and was heading off to look for props. Dad decided, as he had the day off from work, to join her. They went to St Vinnie's and were wandering around when Dad, from across the opposite side of the store, yelled out to Mum ....... 'I've got it'.    Mum and everyone else in the store turned to look at Dad who was standing holding up the China-man's outfit. Mum was sooooooooooooo embarrassed.   Dad was looking so pleased with himself.  It was $8 but they had a half price off day so it only cost $4. Now they wanted a hat to go with it.  Mum spotted the hat in a big box of baskets (50cents). Well it's not a hat really but she thought it would do and it did.  Put a bit of red cord in it for the neck tie and they had the China-man outfit complete. How good was that? Dad was so pleased with himself. He even helped with the photo shoot and when it came time to vote Mum had a hard time stopping him from voting. Who do you think he wanted to vote for?? Yeah ..... you got it!!  ME ..... he wanted to vote for ME!!!!  Crikey ....... that's not what it's all about, aye??  Mum wouldn't let him, thank goodness.  He's an awful embarrassment my Dad.  BUT I do love him!!!!!! Here's how the photo shoot went ......
The very first shot!!  they should have stopped her, aye??
The hat caused a few problems!!
To say the least!!
Have I really gotta do this????
Well ...... hurry up with that cheese!!
Why me??????

Look ....... I can't keep this stupid hat thing on ...... alright???????

See ...... I told you!!!

What??????   What's wrong with my ears???  What am I supposed to do with 'em??
Fair dinkum!!!!!!!!

C'mon ....... lookin' good!!!!  Whattya reckon???????

No ....... this looks ridiculous!!
CRIKEY!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wanna run ....... Love, Charlie!!

  8. Congratulations, Charlie! Those stoopid hats can cause a LOT of problems for the flashy beast takers. We kept tipping our heads and our hats would slide to the floor. More treats is always our plan *wink wink*

C'mon, mate ... you can do it .... please enter next year. It's fun and you don't have to get REAL dressed up. Just a bit. Our Lucy hated it too but she coped..... sometimes!!!!! The little kids next door used to dress her up and wheel her around in their dolls pram. Now that's going a bit far.
