Midgy Cat

Today I got busy making a costume for Marguerite. I didn't want to buy one, unless it cost as little as this one. I decided to make a kitty cat costume for her since Marguerite's lovey is this bedraggled stuffed cat that she schleps around everywhere. So I was going to make a leotard from an old pair of tights, but saw Marguerite's black tank top, so I ended up just adding sleeves and patches of black fur to it.Basically, my materials were my old black tights, my old faux fur stole, and an old plastic hairband. There were Marguerite's own top and tights, of course, which I just embellished with the stuff I mentioned.


I let Marguerite try the costume on and we ended up spending the afternoon as cats, as evidenced in the following (technically, I'm some sort of leopard as per my hairband and scarf):

The thing with Marguerite is that she knows how to internalize the roles she is given. Um, yeah, that's her eating her snack.

Here is a picture of Marguerite convincingly acting like a feral child.

Hi! Good day!

i will be having a triple medical celebration. It is a mini medical blog thing game, not a contest, but a game - a posting game. In this regard, I am looking for bloggers who are willing to sponsor EC credits, 125x125 ad space or cash (thru paypal). Aside from these prizes, I, personally, will be giving medical freebies to the lucky winners and to the sponsors as well. Winners and sponsors who will receive my medical freebies will be chosen using

I am looking forward to hear any from u! You can check the sponsors' list here.
