Gamesmakers have been asked to wear their gamesmaker uniform on Monday even if at their normal jobs. Going to look a right berk so probably won't. Anybody doing it?

I mean really. I'm bloody miles from London and have been asked to wear my uniform with pride on Monday. Really? I'd look like a right weirdo.

Our neighbour was a games maker and wore her uniform to a party as she was on her way home from the games. It was was wonderful to see her wear it.

Please wear yours, especially as you are further from London

I would do it, but then I love a bit of showing off.

thatlldopigthatlldo Sat 08-Sep-12 21:13:28

Really. You wouldn't think 'what a nob'. I would. smile

I did wear mine round ikea in bristol, but that's because i wanted to be wearing it when i got home for the kids to see. They loved it and want me to be their 'show and tell'. Although the teacher has asked that all show and tell things fit into their lockers and the boys are worried about the logistics of this now. grin

Well no as I'm in London and you see people in them everywhere all the time. What are you going to do with your uniform anyway. Do you get to keep it?

thatlldopigthatlldo Sat 08-Sep-12 21:17:14

Yes you get to keep it.
I can use the little bag and have worn the shoes for some of my days at work. I don't know what to use the rest of it for.
It's not exactly my usual style of clothing. wink

YouBrokeMySmoulder Sat 08-Sep-12 21:26:29

I like the shoes. <dull post>

What's a gamesmaker? Apart from seeing that this is in the Olympic topic, I am baffled.

PurpleAndPoppyWearer Sat 08-Sep-12 21:29:42

I'll be wearing it, but I'll be at the parade.

Look at the Facebook groups, loads of GMs planning to wear them to ork. Just wear the top!

Games Makers are the volunteers - the purple/red tops. Not forgetting the pink/purple ambassadors.

PurpleAndPoppyWearer Sat 08-Sep-12 21:30:42

ork work!

Don't you wear the watches? They're the best bit!

YouBrokeMySmoulder Sat 08-Sep-12 21:31:46

A watch? envy

PurpleAndPoppyWearer Sat 08-Sep-12 21:33:35

A red Swatch for the Olympics and a purple one for the Paralympics. They're fab!

YouBrokeMySmoulder Sat 08-Sep-12 21:34:37

Ah that's why the head of swatch did some flower presenting yesterday [olympic obsessive]

thatlldopigthatlldo Sat 08-Sep-12 21:37:28

i have a paralympic uniform. the watch is still in the box though.
yeah, i like the shoes.
and i'm not wearing the dorky cap,i never did.

YouBrokeMySmoulder Sat 08-Sep-12 21:39:02

Not forgetting your very important foam glad hand grin

thatlldopigthatlldo Sat 08-Sep-12 21:40:24

i don't have a hand? nobody gave me a hand, although i suppose in the medical team they might have got in the way a bit no?

Bluestocking Sat 08-Sep-12 21:42:42

I think you should definitely wear it! No-one will think you are a weirdo - people will think you are a gamesmaker and will be impressed - at least I would be!

PurpleAndPoppyWearer Sat 08-Sep-12 21:47:11

I had a pink hand for a glorious hour. They all disappeared after day four wher I was...either fell apart, or were put on eBay sad.

The headteacher from our primary school wore hers on Friday it was great to see...wear it with pride you guys were fabulous

ajandjjmum Sun 09-Sep-12 12:33:26

DS says no way. DD is thinking of wearing hers on the train coming home!!! smile

I would - although they have been everywhere in London for the past couple of months, it's still lovely to see them, and gives others the reason to smile or chat. To see one away from London, ie. the Midlands, would be fantastic - a real smile maker!

GoldenPeppermintCreams Sun 09-Sep-12 20:13:45

I would! (Although I live in London)

Honestly, what's the worst that would happen? grin

LovelyMarchHare Sun 09-Sep-12 20:25:23

I was very excited to see one when I was visiting London from the North the other week. So I would say yes, I think people would be genuinely pleased to see you in it.

Stokes Sun 09-Sep-12 20:59:54

I probably wouldn't wear it if it was me, but I would be very proud of a colleague turning up in their full uniform. Definitely wear at least part of it.

I know there are at least 2 people from my place of work that have been gamesmakers and I hope they wear their uniforms tomorrow.

Go on - wear it with pride.
