Hear that sound? It’s the clinking of glasses and quiet chatter of the meeting of the minds that is The Lounge. This week the party is being hosted by the uber fashionable (even if she does thing jeggings are awesome) Sarah at Slapdash Mama. The theme for the week is Fashion Fails.
I might have bent the rules a little this week. My fail isn’t really fashion because the only place I wore it was on stage but it’s the only thing I have photographic evidence of. We all know that if there is no photo’s then it didn’t happen.
The year was 2005, I decided fuck the cool crowd (like I was ever in it) and I was going to be part of the Rock Eisteddfod. Those not familiar with this phenomenon, it is a whole school, dancing production that is months in the making. I can’t remember what the theme for the overall Eisteddfod but I do know that we chose to do an around the world theme, specifically The Amazing Race.
I was an African. It was all fine and dandy until the music teacher organising the whole thing showed us the costumes. Pink and Yellow zebra striped skirts with sequined halter tops. It didn’t stop there however, we also had to have our hair teased. My hair is thick, and there is lots of it. It took me nearly an hour to get my hair untangled after the show. To top it off, we didn’t even win, we in fact came last. My fashion fail was indeed a giant, fat, fail.
The highlight however was getting our body paint done by the resident hot teacher. Let’s just say I am glad that I am female and don’t have a penis..it could have been very embarrassing.
