Evening Blog-peeps, hope you are well. I’m here again because I need your help. I need you to get your grey matter going with some good ideas for fancy dress. Big J is having a French Day in school on Monday 16th July and has been asked to dress up as “French people or French cartoon characters”. Hmmmmm tough call.
That’s Big J in Paris a couple of years ago, if you peer through the trees you can see the Eiffel Tower.
Thoughts I have had so far have been :-
stereotypical French person -beret, striped shirt, string of onions…
Famous French people – Napoleon, Monet, etc.
Cartoon characters- Asterix, Obelix, Getafix, Pepe Le Pew, Tin Tin (although strictly speaking I think he was actually Belgian)
And after that I am stuck! I know Big J would like to be Tin Tin, he just watched the movie. And Tin Tin would be quite easy to do….. But he’s Belgian. He doesn’t really know Asterix and his mates but I guess we could get a library book. Don’t really want to go down the stereotypical route but if we can’t come up with something else then…. Think Napoleon would be tricky and Monet might end up being a stereotypical French person with a palette and paint brush!! Pepe Le Pew could be a lot of fun but not sure he would want to be a stinky skunk!!
Anybody got any good ideas for me?? Promise to post photos of the finished outfit for you when we do it.
I’m off to puzzle over it some more.
