Good uses for old Christmas decorations (Wrapping paper, tinsel, broken baubles
etc.) - Make clothes. Yes, that sounds a bit odd, I know. But they made us do it in
ACE (Accelerated Curriculum Enhancement ; my school do it instead of history,
geography or languages) and the clothes came out looking alright, even if Connor did
decide he was an eskimo and not a knight.
This was the basic idea - We had a local artist in to teach us this. We could either
make a model's dress, or knight's armor. My group (Me, Alicia, Luke and Medythia)
made a dress, which Medythia had to wear.
We did all this a few weeks back ; today was the fashion show. Medythia had to
reschedule her Grease audition so that she could get into her dress early, because
she needed to be sellotaped in. We tried to do buttons, but that equaled much fail.
There were three prizes ; Best dress, Best strut, Best armor, and Most entertaining
Harriet won the best dress, but that was understandable. Her dress was made out of
loads of hoops which they made with flexible wood, with layers of newspaper in
ruffles that went to her feet. It rustled when she walked.
Robyn won the best strut. Technically, what she did was not strutting. She sort of
swaggered and over exagerrated all her movements, so she looked like a circus clown.
Medythia acted really nice around her (Which was weird, because Robyn knows Shona,
Medythia and I all don't like her.) but then kept going on about 'How could
Robyn win it?' while we were in the car.
Best armor went to Dane. The knights I don't remember much about, other than they
could only use bubble wrap, cardboard and wrapping paper.
I don't know who won Most Entertaining, only that it should have been 'Sir Can't be
assed', who went to sleep after he'd been on, and then when they were fighting did
I'm customizing my new skirt because it's boring.
