Grin and wear it.

OK so I'm thinking of doing fancy dress for the sponsored run.. any suggestions? I've worn some weird and wonderful outfits in my life, I like to be seen and at 6' tall I've got a good head start! I remember for the London marathon I had a peek cap on my head with a union flag sticking out of it. If I recall the start of the big event, almost every other runner had a flag of one kind or another, some as big as Big Ben protruding from their heads, so my pathetic attempt at being seen on national television kind of failed, ever so slightly, but there was over 29,000 taking part! I did at one drink station almost get crushed by two Rhinos, men in Rhino outfits, weighing some incredible weight. So I'm thinking bright colours, I mean I'd love to go dressed as a rainbow in all those glorious colours.. or maybe go as a clown? I'm hoping you people will be able to give me some ideas as to what to wear. It can't be to cumbersome other wise I'll have trouble getting the costume to the starting post and I want to run as fast as I can, make a good time.. and before any one suggests it, I won't be running in my birthday suit either!! In my dreams may be, I don't want to get arrested. Some of you are probably wondering why I'd want to go in fancy dress? My answer is 'why not!' it's for a worthy cause, I like to be centre of attention, what a talking point!

I think you should be a ladybird. Red bodysuit, sew on some black spots. Fairy wings and red deely boppers! You could wear a black tu tu to cover up a bit. There! All set! x

Thank you flowering jasmine. If you knew how tall I was you'd probably suggest me going as a 'daddy longlegs' Lol...! But thanks, I'll bare that in mind.. good one.x

I think the rainbow idea is the best - and would be lighter than a fancy dress outfit, if you can make a top in a rainbow design? Or how about a rainbow cat suit?
