Collapsing by the clothes rails in faint boredom, I lay by the fan dreaming of light and airy flounces I did not own. Prompted, it seems, by my visible distress, "I'll give you a theme," Bobby suggested, knowing how prone I am to a theme, "fairytales." Oh yes. It's a bit of a pity I got so lost along the way.
Apparently, as well as being O.K. to the W, superheroes are also incredibly distracting. You've walked through the back of said clothes rails (no, it's no wardrobe I know, but they're bamboo and I'll take a talking panda over an old lion any day) and you're well on your way to Narnia and the fairytales that come with. The apron's tied around your waist, the torn top, oh yes, you're feeling rather Cinderella. And then BAM! What do you know, you're V. You're all colours and victory, Clark Kent and vixen.

It isn't quite as cool as my brother's Halloween costume I must admit, of which I am quite jealous (not to mention that mine, in fact, is not a costume at all). At six years old, my brother is as prone to dressing up as I. Is it not unfair that he should get an oh-so-realistic wolf head and I should not? I do suppose he does wear it better though, what with the claws and that. He looks almost as good as he would were he a panda bear.
What is not so super or heroic, now, is my lack of internet. While I'll happily take the blame for stuffing it up, sans it all is proving to indeed be a hindrance, demonstrated by the complicity of posting new Ebay auctions. The above-pictured T-Shirt will be popped up there soon enough, (there's only so long one can keep up the superhero facade) so keep an eye out. In the meantime, catch last week's auctions before they end.
Also thank you to Missa from Thrift Candy for her dedicated post last week. I am very much flattered.
UPDATE: T-Shirt now on Ebay here! And space table link now working!
