The pom poms are not permanent fixtures, but just a couple of quickies I made that have brooch pins on the back. I went to see Cirque du Soleil's production of Ovo on Saturday. Wow, what a brilliant show that was! So, it really seemed a bit boring to come home and photograph a plain black smock after having my brain burning with all that colour! So I thought I'd have a bit of fun and play dress-ups with it.
But as fun as that looks, Sophie would have those pom poms ripped out and stuffed in her mouth within a minute, so the de-clowned version is probably a safer bet for everyday wear.
