Ok, it doesn't look like much but C had a birthday party today and the theme was "Mermaids and the Sea!" I had been thinking about a costume for him, after being very inspired by Halloween, and was wondering what would be appropriate? Pirate? Possibly. Starfish? Too difficult.

I left it till an hour before the party started and C gave me the idea himself.

"Mum! I want to go as seaweed!"

What a great idea, I thought and luckily, had some green bubble wrap. I cut them into strips and stuck them to a ribbon. I put in some darker green streamers for more depth and effect. In the end, it looked kind of cheap but it was made in less than 20 minutes so I really couldn't have expected more.
