animals (people dressed up)

designer petwear hand made


i put this in the ‘animals (people dress up)’ category as i don’t have a ‘animals (dressed up as people)’ category

so jolly yet so scary


this chap dropped out of a dressing up timewarp.  a disney reject from the 80s perhaps

i haven’t got a category for ‘people dressed up as landmarks’ so i’ve used the animal (people dressed up) category instead

day 11 pembrokeshire county show part 3

of course there were animals at the show too


and i loved how they covered a bull’s head with rosettes. 


because you don’t want to upset a bull by sticking things all over its face do you ?  note the slobber


there was a bird section


no one likes being called heavy.


ducks with a nice long necks.  i think they could do with some arms stuck on the sides of their bodies


this was a bit unfortunate.  it was a cage with something hidden under some sawdust. no one likes a loser


there were some more serious birds outside


this little barn owl brought his barn owl caravan


and he was keeping an eye on me


here is a sign i can agree with.


and some of the animals seemed slightly larger than life


strange animal


i spent some of the day in my old office yesterday which was very nice.  it meant i got to see some great london sights, including this chap dressed as a random animal



nothing to do with art prizes.  just genuine bears greeting visitors.


cute mobile phone

ok – so this isn’t exactly an animal dressed up as a person (or vice-versa), but it’s still a person dressed up (i think). and he/she has some cute moves to make their blackberry sweetness shine through.

parrot outside liverpool street

i haven’t seen many people dressed up as animals for ages, so i was delighted to see this chap yesterday

rabbit at the door

there wasa rabbit in westminster yesterday afternoon interviewing people
what fun. probably.

rabbit on the beach

rabbits don’t belong on beaches
nor do people dressed in very warm costumes

mad squirrel
squirrelling about outside st paul’s tube station


bird flu

i’ll catch the armagedon zeitgeist by doing a post about bird flu. except this is simply another animal outside the glasses shop on tottenham court road. it seems they’ve stuck with the recent bird theme
i spotted this one from a restaurant where i was having a business lunch and kept an eye on it as i dinned. after i walked over to where it was standing and took this photo.
the bird itself looked a bit upset i thought (not to mention a bit beaten up), but then i noticed the crossed arms were built in and the hands were sticking randomly out. i took a leaflet and noticed that the hands were very nicely manicured and a lady’s voice said ‘thank you’ very politely.
it definately wasn’t the same person inside as before

sunday is funday (at mcdonalds)

the sermon at church yesterday was about what our attitude to sunday should be. you can read what was said here.
we’re studying genesis at the moment – the Bible book, not the band, although ‘genesis the early years’ would be quite a cool sermon series, or how about Genesis BC (Before Collins).
but we’ve been learning lots on how God created the world as a cool place. hopefully you catch a bit of that excitement here on funkypancake.
anyway, sunday at mcdonalds is ‘funday’ apparently. so much fun in fact that they dressed one of their people up as a bear with a wonky face.


well, it seems the people of Tottenham Court Road suffered Parrot Fatigue and the effectiveness of the costume wore off. they’ve stuck with the bird theme though, so here we have an owl. (see the complete collection here)
here he is from the front

and here he is attracting a large crowd to the front

the bird is back

the parrot is obviously proving very successful as it’s been around quite a lot the last few days
