I'm 44. Am I too old to dress as Mary, Queen of Scots and take the 68 bus through Camberwell Green?

Self-explanatory really.

depends - will there be a small dog in your skirt?

Oh you have to sit the entire way stoney face like a ghost - it's no fun if you can't scare a toddler...

no, you're never too old to get on a bus in a ruff.

will you have a big farthingale? If so you will need to avoid the rush hour.

SybilBeddows Tue 28-Jun-11 12:46:58

anyway surely in London no-one will even notice?

Sybil: I'll thank you NOT to mention the size of my farthingale.

mittenkitten as long as you're getting the 68 through Camberwell Green, rather than getting on or off there, I'm sure you'll be fine. grin

Can we have a picture of the said ensemble please!

Certainly, but I warn that I was in a bad mood when this was taken, as my Ladies in Waiting had misplaced my Oyster Card.

I'm 37 and dressing as Katy Perry <youthful gorgeous and talented of which I am none> at the weekend. If I can you can. grin
