When I was first contacted by Jokers’ Masquerade I didn’t in my wildest dreams think it would end with what you are about to see and read. Many of you who follow me on Twitter or are friends with my on Facebook may well have seen some of the outcome already and for those of you who haven’t – grab a cup of tea, a biscuit and get ready for the ride of your life with joke.co.uk and a Morphsuit.
For those of you who haven’t heard of Morphsuits (where have you been hiding?) They are a phenomenon to have hit the UK (and the world) over the past couple of years. They are colourful, wacky and VERY crazy. My other half has had a long term obsession with them and when the offer came in asking if I would like to try a costume, Ash was straight in there with can I do this one… Can I try a Morphsuit? Luckily for him and you the lovely Jokers’ Masquerade said yes.
For all of you who are yet to see a Morphsuit let’s start with a photo featuring the lovely Sally as well..
Q: Why did the skeleton run up a tree?
A: Because a dog was after his bones!
Yes a Morphsuit really is a full body suit that covers you from the tips of your toes to the top of your head. There is obviously a zip on the back the lets you in and out that runs from the middle of your head to the middle of your back.
Q: What do skeletons say before they begin dining?
A: Bone appetite!
This suits are being used for everything from Halloween Costumes, to Stag and Hen parties, a few have been used when people run things like the marathon, to be honest it’s more a question of what aren’t they used for and the answer is probably just about nothing.
My two main questions to Ash were:
Q1. Can you see?
A. Obviously it’s not as great as normal vision but it’s pretty good – I’m not likely to go tripping over anything through not being able to see it.
Q2. Can you breathe?
A. It does get hot when your breathing but its ok you don’t feel like you’re suffocating, and of course it’s quite simple to just pull the hood part down by unzipping it a little.
Q: What does a skeleton orders at a restaurant?
A: Spare ribs!
Yes these were taken in front of the window with the curtains open!! It’s more fun that way…
Fancy dress means something different to us all – we all want to be or wear something different – Ash is the Morphsuit Man while I’m well I’m not sure I know what my perfect costume would be but I do know I have very fond memories of dressing up steaming back right to my childhood when I used to love making my own costumes I was a very imaginative child and lacy net curtains were my favourite thing I could be come all sorts using one of those one day they might be wings, and maybe another a beautiful dress, it really was whatever I wanted it to be, as I grew older it was dressing up for school, for plays and parties. I haven’t dressed up in a long time, and to be honest doing this post has been so much fun – I’ve been in fits of laughter so many times with Ash’s posing and trying on.
Q: What happened when the skeletons rode pogo sticks?
A: They had a rattling good time!
