Close encounters of the pig kind!
Today in lil P’s school they have a drama enaction of – the very busy spider.. n lil P is the PIG! For people who have not read this book and are wondering what a pig is doing in a spider story, here’s the summary..
Well The school just told us that lil p would have to go dressed as a pig! We searched on the net, asked a few colleagues and then we got to know about sringar ( branches in jayanagar & Ulsoor)
My friends driver picked it up for me yesterday.. I had very high expectations of fancy dresses after having seen this earlier. however it was not to be.. what could i expect to get for 125 rs.. The costume looked like it was stitched for any age between 2 – 8 and had to be folded at various spots just so that lil P would not swim in it.. n the worst part was it did not look like a PIG!!! Lil P looked like a cute pink cow!! .. Argh!! among the 2 of us ( me & PC) we must have searched at least 15 shops if they had a pig mask.. no where. In a local shop next door I found a mask for a bull.. complete with horns and painted red and yellow. the whole evening was spent in trying to make a mask that looked like a pig!! i’m now an expert on pigs.. having studied their facial characteristics , their expressions, the depth.. the complexion… any doubt u can call me!!
So somehow with my limited craft knowledge .I cut a section of the egg carton and make a nose. After much circus I was able to turn a bull mask into a pig mask. Some funny moments captured.
PS: changed the title! I thot this was more apt !!
LOL :)) Interesting 😉
She looks choooooo cute 🙂
Luv the mask 🙂
“i’m now an expert on pigs.. having studied their facial characteristics , their expressions, the depth.. the complexion… any doubt u can call me!! “
lol! that was hilarious:-)
and what did she think of the mask? was she satisfied??
Wow Shruti.. U can think of a new part time business of mask making.. U turned our lil P into a cutie Piggy so craftfully :)..
Charge them for making a perfect piggy face when u go to return that costume..
well! she went in the school bus dressed as 1.. so i figure she was mighty happy! 🙂 [ the school had asked us to send the costume in a bag.. but she wanted to wear it! ]The driver was really taken aback when a pig got into the bus! swine flu n all!
lol! I can imagine people thinking she was part of a swine flu awareness skit 😛
But the mask does look interesting.n she looks adorable 🙂
