Pantomime fun...

Pantomime fun...

It is tradition that in the Dental School, the final year students (that would include me!) and staff put on a Christmas pantomime for everyone to enjoy! There is much drinking involved too, of course.
It is written and directed by the final years. This year, we have decided to do Aladdin.
And guess which bloody part I shall be playing - remember Jafar's nasty parrot in the Disney cartoon? Yes, that! Even though he's not even in the panto version. but never mind.
So, I need ideas on how to make me look like a parrot.

Discuss.

Next time you're out in Glasgow, go up to the first big hard man you see and say 'Who's a pretty boy then'

He should then help by reshaping your nose into a flat parrot-like beak :thumbsup:

The mocking must stop immediately!
Did I mention that all proceeds go to charity??

I'm sure you'll be great PJ!

After all, nothing succeeds like a parrot sucks seeds

Peej for the costume you will need....

*Five red feather boas....
*1 bright green long slevee hoodie (or as bright as you can get)
*One pair yellow shorts..preferable long enough to reach your knees (or red or green depending on what you can get...if your brave enough to wear cycle shorts all the better)
*1 pair red rugby socks
*Pair of yellow plimsoles (get a cheap white pair from Asda and paint them)
*One novelty beak from a fancey dress shop...you could make a beak out of a toilet roll but I don't know how creative you are?
*A pack of red, yellow and green face paints...

Right....

Sew two boas down the sleeves of the hoodie so they run right across the top of you back and wrist to wrist.

Sew two boas up the outer sems of the shorts and up round the top of your bottom so they join.

Cut the fina boa in half and use one half as a tail and the other half stitch over the top of the hood....back to front so you have a crest.

Now the socks need to be pulled up to the knee and you can don the plimsoles.

Paint your face in a star busrt fashion....streaks of colour radiating out from the nose.

Put on the beak

Now fly away and have some fun!

Hire an outfit. Its easier, it will look better, and I'm sure that right now the costume hire shops are awash with parrot suits in your size.

Failing that, get drunk on the nights you are supposed to be making your costume and then chuck a sickie on the day of the panto!

I fit were me, I'd favour plan B.

If at first you don't succeed, failure may be your style.

Who's a pretty boy then???:laugh:

I always cook with wine, and sometimes I actually put it in the food.
