Mummyfrog was desperate to win the Doctor Who Dress Up event at her work, but I think the make-up chaos/fail really took the wind out of her sails. Plus, the guy (who is part of a clique that seems to always choose each other at these events) had apparently bought a very expensive costume from America rather than spend a month sourcing things from charity shops, alternative stores, art and craft suppliers...
