James Bond Night

bond-3

how exciting,

a local event in aid of Amnesty International.

 I had to think….

how do I prepare for a James Bond night.

Homework….

3 basic ideas came to mind:

Going as a Bond girl I needed to think of

What to wear: – a glamorous  sparkly dress

bond-night-2

 

Diamonds are forever : – a diamond bracelet/ brooch

What does Mr Bond drink….

research: Martini – shaken not stirred

“Bond also drinks gin, beer and champagne in the books and films, and in Casino Royale orders a drink he names a Vesper: “Three measures of Gordon’s, one of vodka, half a measure of Kina Lillet, shake it over ice, and then add a thin slice of lemon peel.”

*****

Luckily I just found a Ball room gown my mum wore about 45 years ago.

I tried and it fitted.

Diamonds- nobody knows if they are real as long as they are sparkly

So off I went.

Result:
