I guess this will end up being a pretty long post since I have photos and stuff to put in that I hope everyone will appreciate.
So, the farewell. Oh my god.
Everyone went to my house after school to get ready and it was awesome! We did handstands and a few people showered. Then I helped Jo with her costume, she wore some leggings I made in Yr 3 too help with the evil fairy thing. She looked great.
We all got dressed and the costumes were all really good. Linda came, as Puss in Boots also looking great until Chloe got to her with the orange facepaint. Luckily it came off! Now for a list of everyone and what they were so fashionably wearing.
Betty: As Wendy, a pretty turquoise dress.
Amy: Minnie Mouse, cue white dress with black spots and some pretty awesome shoes. Her characters with a lot of pink tissue paper and sticky tape!
Isobel: Cinderella in rags, white and brown rags, classic yet original.
Chloe: A Knight, thins rented thing, chain mail which was apparently quite itchy and a sword.
Linda: Puss in Boots, boots (duh!) with fur around the edges, sword, cool hat with feather.
Jo: Vidia some evil fairy, purple top and skirt with black leggings cut raggedly from knee to ankle in like rags kinda.
Sharon: Edna, Black pinnafore and pants and a badge that said Edna that Izzy made.
Me: Aurora/Sleeping Beauty, Pink dress that mom made, I’ll get a photo when i can. I had my grandmas camio pin too and my hair out.
So after we got dressed we did hair! I volumised Shaz’s and Jo’s and did Betty’s as well. Tried Linda’s but it turned out pretty bad so she ended up doing it really.
Then suddenly we didn’t have much time and I was hurrying to do everyone’s makeup because for some reason, i ended up doing it all. Oh well, everyone looked good anyway, though mostly i just put mascara on people. When I’d done everyone, they wanted to leave but i hadn’t one my hair and makeup yet. luckily Shaz and Izzy kept everyone from dashing up the street, they were that excited. In the rush I forgot my rose but mom, thank goodness, rushed back for it and we all ran up the street.
We got there in plenty of time so we needn’t have worried. Everyone had put much more effort into their costumes than I thought. It was so colourful! And there were quite a few people who had the same costume. I have to give highly commended costumes to Rose (amazing Edna costume) and Aisha (beautiful Tinkerbell costume, even if she kept dragging balloons as she danced because they got stuck to her wings.) There were so many great costumes tah I’d be here for much longer than I should be describing them.
In the end it was a bit of an anti-climax after all the build up the farewell got. The first partner dance we did, saw me, Betty and Chloe without partners so we did our own awesome, rock n roll circle! Turns out the boys were on the other side doing their own demented version. The food was gross, since it was hotdogs. Believe me you do not want to try a vegetarian hotdog. They look like rubber and I can bet you a million dollars they taste like rubber too!
Oh well, the decorations were still amazing and it was fun just being with my friends. However by the end of the night I had a headache, so I made a pretty quick exit when it was time to go.
Oh and a not on the teachers costumes. Mr S was Mickey Mouse, so he went with Amy (and quite a few other girls.) The three female teachers were cards from Alice in Wonderland.
Kate (Izzy’s mom) took photos with Wing and they were Mickey and Minnie too. Popular costumes! Peter Pan was also very popular but only Betty was Wendy so I guess they had a lot of fighting to do as she looked so pretty!
So yeah, the farewell. And now it’s sunk in. THIS IS OUR LAST WEEK OF PRIMARY SCHOOL! Ooh and we get our signature bears and yearbook!
Now about Coffs Harbour.
I’m getting tired so I’ll just upload a lot of photos and that will be that.
Pet Porpoise Pool:
I was kissed by a seal but dad got a headless photo, I have a professional one though. Was kissed by a dolphin too and saw a dolphin and seal show. So cute! Then we got to pet the dolphins and feed turtles and seals. Oh and if you’ve ever wondered what the other side of a peacock looks like…
Yeah so it was fun!
G2g Bed. School tomorrow!
