Moose baby.

I mentioned before that The Boyfriend was busy making a HUGE papermache moose head mask, much to my distress. The mask was being made in honor of The Moose and Mountie spectacular at The Local, and it turns out it was a hit! There was a whole pile of Canadian food and boutique beers on offer, plus of course alot of red and white themed stuff. To fit in the theme The Boyfriend got it in his head that he needed a moose head, and you can't just buy such specialised things, you have to make them! He started off by making a wire frame, using my swiss ball as a base. Several layers of papermache were applied inside and out and then painted with some leftover house paint. Eyeballs were made using ping pong balls and eyelashes from a piece of elastic. Hes a handy fellow...

They had really cheap "tasting boards" of beer, $7 for five tasters...mmmm.
Not surprisingly my favourite was a deep dark beer with chocolate and coffee flavours.

Dress: $7.99 thrifted and altered by me ( I took it up about 20cms)
Belt: thrifted
Tights: $10 Target
Shoes: $40 Number One Shoe Warehouse
Beanie: thrifted
