One of my New Year resolutions is to be more consistent with blog posts. It’s such a great way to interact with all of you. So…I’m kicking off 2019 with a Dress the Dinosaur photo contest.
My niece, Hilary, moved into a house that is two doors down from this gigantic dinosaur. She thought the neighbors had set it up for Halloween…but no! Oh no, no, no. This dinosaur is a year-round yard decoration.
Over Christmas, our family had some fun pondering what we would do to dress up the dinosaur, if it were in our yard.
My son suggested a shower cap. More ideas: a French beret on its pointy skull and a dashing scarf around its bony neck. Tin foil braces on its teeth.
My best idea is a Donald Trump wig (and please do not take that as a political comment! It’s not. When it comes to on-line politics…I am Switzerland. Totally neutral).
What about you? How would you dress up the dinosaur? Please leave a comment with your best suggestion.
And check back next Friday to find out if your idea for Dress-the-Dinosaur is picked as the winning comment. The prize is a signed book!
I would dress the dinosaur in a snappy red vest and name him Oscar!!
This is great !!! I would give her red lipstick, a bit of blush and a wild decorated wide brim hat like the RED HAT SOCIETY would have, being outside it’s necessary, and a pair of kicky sunglasses. Put a pretty red scarf and she would be good to go, maybe even a good size purse on her arm !!!!
thanks, this is a really cute contest !! 🙂 Rosemary
I would interlace red ribbon in his tail, put on a nice red cowboy hat, and a suede vest.
Someone would have to make a Barney the purple dinosaur costume for this guy! I know he’s probably not so popular anymore but my kids liked him.
Fred Flintstone with a little car to ride in.
How about a large drop cloth or covering. LOL!
Since she is old I would dress her with a fancy red hat & a fluffy purple scarf.
I’d dress the dinosaur differently depending on the season: a knitted cap, mittens, and a scarf in the winter; an Easter bonnet and basket; a gardening hat and basket of flowers or fake produce in the summer; red, white, and blue Uncle Sam hat for 4th of July with like colored ribbons woven in his tail, a witch’s hat and broom or maybe a ghost costume for Halloween; a pilgrim or turkey headdress for Thanksgiving, and either a Santa hat or reindeer antlers for Christmas. (Apparently, my theme is hats and accessories.) My sons were big dinosaur fans when they were young. They would have loved this.
My grandson suggested the Darth Vader look.
I kinda like that idea.
I would dress him as a butler with a serving tray, top hat, coat with tails.
Regency gentleman’s wardrobe, complete with top hat and gloves.
Since all the rain we are receiving here.. I would put him in a yellow raincoat, yellow rain boots, holding in one hand a big yellow umbrella and in the other hand a big yellow rubber duck. All the yellow is wishing for sunshine.
I would put a stuffed cow, goat, etc. in his mouth and some red ribbon hanging from his teeth. He is a carnivore after all!
Every thought I had has already been picked! Does your niece happen to know why her neighbors have the giant dinosaur in their back yard? Inquiring minds want to know. 🙂
A pink tutu, glitzy top, a pretty pink crown! Even pretty little ballet slippers. Something fun to make her LESS!
I would add a nurse’s cap like they used to wear in dental offices…a toothbrush and tube of toothpaste…necessary…of course…to help fight decay!
A hat & scarf & a broomstick in his hand, Frosty the Dinosaur, lol
How about the Harry Potter look?!? So funny to have a dinosaur like this! Has me LOL.
This is so funny ! I few ideas came to my mind.
2. Hawaiian shirt & sunglasses for warmer months.
3. Scarf, mittens, and knit hat for colder months.
Perhaps a chef’s hat, an apron, and a large wooden spoon, along with a sign that says Welcome to the Dinersaur
Sherlock Holmes, complete with pipe.
