I love fancy dress. I always find it so much fun! And Christmas is a time of year where dressing up can really come into its own, what with all the festive outfits you can choose from. Hell, even the Christmas Jumper is something to revel in rather than smirk at nowadays. And I’m all for it! So much of life is spent worrying about what other people think of us and we all feel we need to reach perfection at all times in order to be deemed as socially acceptable, so an opportunity to have some fun and not give a hoot is right up my street! And the fact I can feel like that on Christmas day is even better!
Right now, what with being 27 weeks pregnant, I’m a bit stuck as to what to get as a festive outfit. The only thing I could think of that was round was a christmas bauble and I’m not really feeling that idea… if anything, our toddler would continuously try to roll me across the floor like he does with all the other tree ornaments. Not ideal at all.
Then I thought of a Snowman but a lot of the outfits are onesies which instantly makes me feel claustrophobic and also begs the question of exactly how I would be able to pee without having to completely undress myself. This earns even more consideration as a problem because with a 2+ foetus bouncing around on your bladder, being able to go for a pee without needing to remove all of one’s clothing is paramount of importance.
A few years ago both myself and PB dressed up as Elves and it was surprisingly comfortable! Well, actually, it shouldn’t be a surprise should it? They probably need to be comfortable whilst building umpteen billion toys to keep the big boss in red happy year after year… ahem. But I really enjoyed wearing the outfit that year, so much so I didn’t bat an eye when I walked into a service station to pay for our tank of petrol… I worked my pointy hat and shoes with bells on, it was great!
And it comes with a tunic and tights which for a pregnant woman is always a winner…. an Elf with a baby bump though… can you imagine?!ha!
