My Roller Derby League was having its first home team bout.
It had a theme of 'pirates of the caribeating'.
It's already really cold in the mountains so I wanted to wear something I would be warm in, as I had the role of penalty box captain so I would be sitting for the whole bout.
Then it struck me, what does every pirate need....
I search the shops for a parrot costume but I couldn't find anything, so I made my own.
I bought 2.5 metres of red polar fleece and started cutting.
I didnt use a pattern or any measurements.
I am pretty happy with the results.
It was a fun night but I don't think I'll be making more parrot suits any time soon, it wasn't hard but I feel like it was a fluke and if I was to try again it wouldn't work.
Ohh and I came second in the costume competition.
