Tell Tails

Getting our Waggle on with Tell Tails

We have been big fans of Tell Tails since we first discovered them back in 2014.

We are slowly building up our collection which now includes the Cheshire Cat tail (our first), a fox tail which was part of our outfit for our Gruffalo story costumes at Camp Bestival and a dinosaur tail.

Camp Bestival

Last month we added two more tails to our collection, a pink Ballerina-Saurus tail for Eliza and a Clever Crocodile for Sebastian, although he thinks it is a dinosaur tail and who are we to disagree.

Eliza’s Ballerina-Saurus tail is shimmery and perfect for my pink loving princess. She loved swooshing it around and wiggling it, drawing lots of comments from people asking where it was from.

The Halloween Dressing Up Alternative

I have always enjoyed celebrating Halloween. As a child we went trick or treating with my mum around our local area, raising money for our local hospice St Bridgets. The residents all knew we were coming and presented us with tricks – normally crushed ice or a bag full of slimy jelly and we always had lots of fun whilst raising money for a great charity. Trick or treating is also something the kids have enjoyed too, although it is almost impossible to collect for a charity as all people have are sweets to giveaway – I don’t think the …
