Fairy Tale Friday

Gayle has been working on some pin up style drawings over the last week and they were released yesterday on The girls got very excited as the idea was so different from what the team has been doing recently. In fact they all volunteered to do poses for her.

The tower was full of girls in 50's style costumes. The floor was criss-crossed with extension cables as the girls all had hairdryers blasting away in the hope that they could copy the old Marilyn Monroe pose. However, Sonia manager to find a 4-way plug and a hairdryer for each connection. This meant that her skirt instead of billowing in the wind, flew up around her head and blocked her vision. She tripped over some cables and fell very unladylike onto the floor.

Donna flounced in with a bathing costume on covered up with a dressing gown. She took off the dressing gown, then realised how cold it was. She ran straight up stairs and jumped back into bed to try and heat herself up. She's now got the flu. Silly girl.

Claire tried to carry off the famous Jane Russell pose where she lies back on a haystack with a gun in her hand. Unfortunately the fake gun was a lighter, and Claire also had hay fever. She sneezed, the gun went off, and set fire to the hay. The fire picked up quickly, girls screamed and raced about looking for water. Fortunately Teddy Bo Towers has a large well in the lower level, and the fire was put out before it could spread through the room.

I'm sure next week the girls will have a story to tell about decorators clearing out the burnt hay and fixing up the room. However at least we have some lovely pin up girl graphics for you to have a look at. Guess which one is based on each of the design girls.

SO....once they'd all stopped pretending they were glamour models they managed to sneak in a few cards....x
