Fancy Dress Competition

Whenever you clear up your wardrobe, you are sure to find something good :).
Just one day back, and I got my album, and while turning its pages I found myself dressed in a “lehnga” with a proper “ghoonghat” and my age might be around 4 years. What I was doing then? It was a Fancy Dress Competition!!! I remember, my nose ring was pinching me and I cried before actually going on stage for the pain and face on the photo was conveying the same story. Don’t know what judges inferred from it? Might be a vidai scene of dulhan that I got a first prize . LOL….
This reminded me of the first fancy dress participation by me where I was “Kishan Kanhiya” and I was not going on stage so my sweet maama had to stand just beside me on stage.
Then came the next pic, where I was butterfly, with blue wings and blue frill wala frock I sang loudly “Titli uddi udati chali….phoolan ne kaha aaja mere pass..” But Didn’t got anything for this :D
Then just one year later, my aunt came with a unique idea of framing me on stage as “Negative”. I was dressed all black and mouth painted white. Many people thought of it as “bhoot” and not negative and such a creative idea went away in vain
May be I’m not in touch with kids now, or may be that I m quite right, but haven’t seen or heard about the fancy dress competition.
What today’s trend is theme party, which are quite similar to Fancy Dress but not a competition? Whatever, somehow I don’t like them. No specific reason but just don’t like them :(
I’m still biased to kids in different dresses and masks and colours…..
what say?

I was once a joker and my landlord kids made a special stick for me that sounds good without any hurt if I hit someone.

hehehe.... it reminded me of my school days... even i'd become cindrella, but didnt get any prize coz many other girls were dressed similar!: P

but you even now we sometimes get a chance to dress up in a theme party, and now one of ht eonly feasible option seems to be 'retro'... :)
