Hi ho everyone! Sebastian here and I thought I would share a little something different. Just the other day I had a chance to read the newspaper and I saw a notice that said Clinton Kelly from the TV show What Not To Wear was going to be making an appearance not too far from where I live.
That got me to thinking about my unique sense of style. I thought perhaps if I took you on a tour of my closet, it might give you a peek into what makes me, Sebastian . . . well, Sebastian. Just be forewarned, this tour is not for the faint of heart.
Let’s start with the closet itself. First of all, I’ve come to believe that it’s not a real closet. I think in its former life, it was a cigar box. There’s no fooling me you know. And now it is getting a bit small for my needs. After all, as I get invited to more events, my wardrobe expands and yet, my closet stays the same size. I think someone is going to have to have a talk with someone else about this matter very soon.
Brace yourself I’m going to show you the inside.
Ta dah! The inside. I do have a system, it’s just that the last time I had to fish something out of here, it kind of went wonky. So, let me show you a few of my favorite items of apparel.
Let’s begin with my hats. I have a lot of hats and I wear them well if I do say so myself.
You see here I have my Mickey Mouse ear hat and my crown. There’s also my Tin Man hat, Sorcerer Mickey hat and birthday hat for parties. Just remembering the times I wore these makes me feel all warm inside!
Here I am in my Donald Duck hat that I love! I also have my bunny face mask and the warm winter hat that my friend Lyn knitted for me. It’s too hot for that today!
Now let’s move on to some other things in my closet – like these fairy wings!
I wore these when I met Tinker Bell. That was so much fun. I need to find another occasion to wear these because they are my favorite wings.
Here I am mixing it up a little bit. I’m wearing my Donald Duck beak with my fried egg costume. I wore the egg to a Halloween party once. Now people remember me as the fried egg bear so I really need a new costume this year. Oh, and that white cloth next to me? That’s my ghost costume. No one could guess it was me when I had it on!
From Halloween to Christmas, here I am in my red and white stocking cap! I like to get in the spirit of Christmas and this hat gets me there fast. I’m embarrassed to say that this is the only T-shirt I own, but I like it very much.
And finally, look who I found! He’s been hiding in the bottom of my closet! I had a great time making my friend here and I think it’s time we hung out together a little more.
Well, those are the highlights of my closet. Remember “it’s not the clothes that make the bear but the bear that makes the clothes”.
Maybe next time I will show you the things in my scrap box. I don’t have a scrap book because most of my treasures are not flat so I put them in a box. I’ll bet you can guess what kind of box they are in, can’t you?
love & hugs,
