Category Archives: Dressing up
Thought you might enjoy a few photos of Twitter dogs that have appeared in my Timeline recently. But first a caveat. I appreciate the dressing of a dog for only short periods, and only then if the dog is able to remove whatever is draped on them. Strapped-on cossies where Rover can’t escape, like the Pokemon on the right, go too far for me. But these below are OK I reckon…. in the photos where the dog is unhappy at the undermining of their dignity (like the one of Ben in his antlers), the ‘costume’ is easily removed with a paw. And Dave in his wings… well, Dave is Happy Dave no matter what’s occurring. We’ll start with @LassieOscar preventing the CIA from ‘activating’ his brain.
Oh yes, and this cat insisted on getting in on the act….
Three years ago (jeebus, was it that long?) me and Cat went to the London MCMExpo. Now that Expo was happening up North, and on our very doorstep, we could suffer no other action than to go again. Loved the fact that this year, cos we bought early entry tickets, we got in with just ten minutes of queueing, rather than two hours. There’s a SHYTELOAD of pics (and a couple of videos) here that I hope capture the feel of a joyous day full of happy, friendly, vibrant people. Enjoy. If you recognise yourself in a pic having stumbled across this humble blog, do yell “Ayup Wombat!” in the comments and give us a cheery wave of whichever body part you find most pleasing. Oh, and you can click on each pic to see a larger version.
I definitely recommend you click on this pic to see the large version. There’s lots of goodies to pick out from the crowd.
Lolly chainsaw, cheerleader, weird scarecrow thing – what’s not to like?
Decide on your own amusing caption for this one, cos I can’t even.
Dance, girls, dance!
I love the pop-quaffing furry on the left there. Working the pink hair there, kids.
The steps were remarkably popular for resting, although they did give you a nasty case of Numbum.
That awkward moment when your cloven hoof goes wonky
“And you are Green Lantern?”
“ARROW, WOMAN! FFS!”
Assembled folk of all kinds, but every single one having a champion time. Yes I’m from Yorkshire, why do you ask?
Skitty & Bulbasaur
Tim, Cat & Katharine
Inside G-MEX – sorry, “Manchester Central”, its crap new name.
Resting bananas. Be careful not to tread on them.
No Luke, *I* am your helmet.
Some weird Super-Ghost-Doctor mash-up that I can’t even.
Posing with dead Heath Ledger

Small child, HUGE ROBOT
Dalek japes. EXTERMI oh wait…..
Them nice Merlin knights sign stuff and smile a lot.

The footballers seemed out of place. Which dickhead spelled Mike Summerbee’s name wrong?
A weird fight between disparate genres.
It was a family day – lots of kids, which was great.
Those Merlin guys on stage (yeah, I can’t be bothered to look up their names).
Mario entertains the kids.
How much money did YOU spend?
I hope he has a green crayon.
Mobile massage. Really relaxing, akshly.
A range of costumes that tickled me. Life’s too short for me to comment on every one, but oh, those Iron Men Girls Women. Iron Ladies? Oh no, that’s something else entirely …. ah, you know what I mean.
Vic Mignogna Meets cat
Just a couple – first up, some bopping to YMCA after Vic Mignogna had finished singing.
And the second is a brief walkabout through the crowd….
