This video was recorded to wish a Happy New Year for 2014 to my good cyber friend Kevin G from Facebook group Marching Girls. Kevin assists me to administer the group.
In frugal fashion, I went in search of a uniform of sorts for this vignette. I sourced the black netball skirt from the point of landfill. It is Australian made and in very good condition.
I already had the Cromwell’s riding cap that I bought for $10 from a charity shop many years ago just because I liked it.
When I was marching in the 1970s I always wanted a feather in my cap. For this video I attached a red feather to the riding cap with a bulldog clip. The red feather was also sourced at the point of landfill.
And the jacket is a 1970s Australian made garment bought for $2.00 also from a charity shop many years ago.
My marching boots are my own and were purchased in 1970. I won Australian Best Junior Marching Leader in these boots in 1973.
Never be afraid to adult play. Beat the Man and have a fun time on a budget.
HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL FOR 2014
