On "Meet The Parents" I got to work with and style the lovely Alex Zane! We had some great tee's featured in the show.. a couple from Johnny Cupcakes.. one of which was a really cute black fitted tee with this ginormous boy in dungarees on the front eating a cupcake.. really striking design.. looked pretty good with Alex's trademark fitted suit. Go check out their online store and they have a cute store on Carnaby Street in town. Worth a visit just to take a look!
We also had a Tee shirt from "The House Of Gods" which was probably my favourite as it had a stylised retro design on the front of a 80's pin ball machine in bold reds and greys.. what i loved the most about this one was that the motif ran from neck to navel. I do blieve they have a concession in Topsh

So One of the jobs I have been working on at the moment is a series for Cbeebies called "Mr Blooms Nursery". Which is a puppet based show with 4 main characters - A fennel called Joan, A Runner Bean called Collin, a Butternut Squash called Raymond and a Cabbage called Margret.... and YES they all happen to be vegtable. plus theres an array of other green house friends.. all run by Mr Bloom, the friendly caring gardener.
my role within the show was Costumes and Puppets. - bare in mind this was the first time in my career i have ever had to dress vegtables. I've worked with puppets before.. but the furry kind..
We were filming up in the new Media city centre that was based in Manchester. Was such a contrast to work on that as well as be out buying rubber and gimp masks for the other show I was working on (Meet The Parents - for E4)
Below you can see one of the lovely new characters we created.. "Debbie The Pineapple"..
The show goes out around the world toward the end of the year/early Jan..
ya kids will love it..
