Day 20 – Hold the worm, it’s tequila!So when Alex met with friends, Tracy and Janet for drinks on Saturday, ‘what better costume’ she thought, ‘than a tequila bottle?!’ She encountered the first bump in the road of her 30 day challenge though, when bar staff asked her to remove it as it wasn’t suitable attire. But after her friends explained what it was for, they reluctantly agreed to let her remain in the outfit – as long as she took the hood down! Phew, what a close one, as Alex would have hated to let everyone down (though she probably would have just moved onto another bar!) And she even managed to sneak in a cheeky visit to a tequila bar before she went home!
Day 21 – She’s Still Standing – as Elton!Sunday chores are always a bore, so to get through them, Alex chose to stick some classic hits on and wash her dishes while dressed as Elton John. Completely normal. Although after the fun she had, she’s decided there might be something in fancy dress as a way of getting through the monotony of cleaning! She was also delighted that the Liverpool Echo wrote a mid-way round-up of her costumes – after writing 3 other articles about her fancy dress campaign and also arranging St George’s Hall to light up purple for pancreatic cancer on November 1st. They have been a great support to Alex!
Day 22 – Disco queenIn Pancreatic Cancer UK’s own words, it was a case of more ‘Monday morning fever, than Saturday night fever’ in Monday’s outfit – grooving around as a disco babe! We thought the fab afro really suited her, and Alex said she’d wished she had hair like this so realised a lifelong dream in this one. It brightened up an otherwise dull Monday having a bit of shimmer in the office, and she even managed to have a go at recreating Beyonce’s ‘Foxxy Cleopatra’ hula hoop scene from her ‘Work It Out’ music video, for the film ‘Austin Powers in Goldmember’. Choreographed by new Account Manager, Laurie it’s hilarious, just click the link watch it:
