Preparations for the Carnival / Priprave na pust


  This year the Carnival starts very early and this means I have only three weeks of time for all the preparations of the costumes - for my kids. They (specially the older one) have usually very specific and creative ideas for what would they like to represent - don't need to tell you that those type of costumes are not available for buying in the first supermarket or store. That means my sewing machine and all my hidden sewing skills have to come to light.
  Letos bo pust zelo zgodaj, kar pomeni, da imamo samo še tri tedne časa za vse priprave in izdelavo kostumov za tamala dva. Seveda imata vedno (še posebno starejši) kakšne "ekzotične" in zelo specifične želje glede kostumov, da jih v trgovini ne dobiš. To pomeni, da se morata prebuditi tako moj šivalni stroj, kot tudi moje skrite šiviljske sposobnosti.

  My boys still haven't taken the final decision for this year's costumes and that means I'll spent the last nights before the Carnival awake arguing with the sewing machine (when the deadline is too close it usually doesn't cooperate properly) ...
  Ker se moja dva še nista odločila, kaj bi pa rada letos predstavljala, bom najverjetneje zadnjih nekaj večerov pred pustom bedela in se kregala s šivalnim strojem, ki mi v naglici zelo rad ponagaja) ...

  So today I want to show some of the costumes of the previous years, as I don't have any jewellery stuff to show... (the faces are blurred on purpose):
  Ker vam nimam nobenega nakita za pokazat, bom malo obudila spomine na kustume iz preteklih let (obrazi so namenoma zabrisani):


Shaun the Sheep and Timmy (2010)
  Bacek Jon in Timmy (2010)



Triceratops and Bunny (2011)
Triceratops in Zajček (2011)





Fire Dragon and Nodi (2012)
Ognjeni zmaj in Nodi (2012)





  Have fun!
  Zabavajte se!
