Circus was this year’s theme, complete with sideshows and guests ranging from sideshow carnies to clowns to ringmasters to strong men to lion tamers to an organ grinder and his monkey and rather a lot of sexy vintage-styled burlesque costumes. The Welshman didn’t mind them at all.
One of my favourite costumes was a fabulous woman dressed in a fabulous Roman costume. It escaped a few people, but I was delighted to get the reference straight off. All that reading pays off eventually. She was dressed as Juvenal, a Roman poet who wrote The Satires. Ever made reference to bread and circuses? You can thank Juvenal for that quote!
The fabulous parent band, Parental as Anything, played another stellar gig. Their performance was as good as their name. Still a bit proud of that naming effort!
Check out some of the amazing circus costumes!

Top marks to the Welshman, my lovely lady love. He knocked it out of the park dressed as the Bearded Lady, taking out the prize for Best Dressed Man. I’m afraid his collar didn’t match his cuffs. I liken his look to the lovechild of Hagrid and Jayne Mansfield. What do you think?
My tutu was purchased two years ago from a Peter Alexander ex-store display for an absolute bargain. I just couldn’t resist the sheer prettiness of it and knew I would press it into service one day. It was a slightly odd trip home on the bus carrying a tutu. As you do!
