I'm working on the assumption that the same bunch of parents who ignored the no photos rule as last years show will be doing the same this year so rather than DS miss out thought we'd try a costume with a lot of coverage!
Do you think this is enough? 2 years since birth family have seen him, he doesn't look massively different but no longer baby faced.
That's the problem I don't think he'd keep a mask on! Flirted with the idea of a Father Christmas outfit complete with beard but I fear his antics when provided with a beard would bring more attention than anonymity
Gah thought this one would be a good compromise as it looks like it would squish his cheeks a bit and cover his hair so any random Facebook pics it wouldn't be obvious it was him.
I've ordered face paint that looks to be the same colour brown as the outfit so watch this space....will have a dry run when it all arrives and post a pic if he looks suitably rudolf and in no way like minimint!
Stupidity excited to see him dressed up now!!!
Hoping the hood part plus face paint will fool any software, he doesn't have a 'part' as such too hyper and loud and unpredictable to be picked so will be lurking in the back of most pictures in the shadows hopefully.
my sheep had to crawl across the front of stage - with his shepherd - then sit (with his 1-1)....did he? did he hell.....he crawled around the stage for the entire play, cocked his leg - al-la dog at several places, and generally played up! He was adorable, and thankfully the other parents thought so too.....I did not stick around for what the teachers thought
Mine categorically WILL NOT dress up at all. Under any circumstances. Runs a mile from hats or any kind of cream never mind face paint. I usually find that by amazing coincidence we have a hospital appointment on every single school play afternoon
I've found that there's always a few who refuse to comply with the request anyway!
Disguises are the way forward! Even I don't recognise DS in his.
I was gong through some old adoption uk magazines last week and found an piece on this subject. They had a letter that one school shared with all parents keeping the family details out but basically outlining why a child couldn't be plastered over social media. Will post a pic of it later as currently mumsnetting under the duvet trying to convince a poorly child it's the middle of the night so he should go back to sleep
