At least pretend, can’t you…?

Why is it that, no matter how convincing the Terrifying Lesser-Spotted Scaly Dinosaur-Monster-Type-Thing disguise, mums are more disposed to find a costumed ambush vaguely amusing as opposed to spine-tinglingly scary (as is really the only appropriate response to such concerted monster-emulating efforts)?

    Love this! Love your stuff. I like the the way grayscale background items (portraits, lamp, newspaper) enhance the whole picture. Awesome costume, too, particularly the scary face of the dinosaur.

      Thank you, Cindy! Although it’s a rather more luxurious costume than we had – or, I think, the average child would have – access to; I seem to remember lots of upturned egg cartons, green poster paint and sellotape for ‘dragon’ when we were little! x

  2. I agree.. nice effect with the background! Very effective & lots of fun to look at!
