Nearly the Best Thing in the V & A ...(Nostalgia Alert !)


Prince Charming (By Adam Ant/marco pirroni)

Don't you ever, don't you ever
Stop being dandy, showing me you're handsome
Don't you ever, don't you ever
Stop being dandy, showing me you're handsome

Ridicule is nothing to be scared of
Don't you ever, don't you ever
Stop being dandy, showing me you're handsome

Don't you ever, don't you ever
Lower yourself, forgetting all your standards
Don't you ever, don't you ever
Lower yourself, forgetting all your standards

Respect yourself and all of those around you

I had a wonderful day at Hugglets on sunday ... but I spent the day before going round the Victoria and Albert Museum - and you certainly can't see everything in a day- and I couldn't wait to get up to the Theatrical Gallery because I knew Adam Ant's (aka Stuart Goddard's ) Prince Charming costume was up there ! Ohhhh , how my sister and I used to love that song video , right at the height of New Romantic popularity ! Goodness , how I sighed and drooled over that Boho'/ N.A Indian /Regency Buck look he had going on ! Well , it gave me enormous pleasure to see the outfit right up close ... wasn't that keen on Jimmy Page's suit and Elton John's bicycle costume in the same case though . They just weren't Ant-tastic to me :0)



Look at this amazing glass chandelier in the V & A entrance hall as well - it was spectacular in scale and design .

All in all it was a tiring , but totally enjoyable weekend ; Hugglets is just the most fantastic venue to be around bears (and their people) and I was really pleased with how I did . Although my 3 hamsters were universally admired , and many people commented on them, they have all come home with me ... perhaps they're a bit too naughty ?? :0P

Ta Ta For Now ,

Ohhhh! Someday I hope to go to the V&A! And Adam Ant! Thank you for reminding me of him--he was my favorite for a long time!

I'm glad that Hugglets went well for you. I'm surprised that none of your hamsters sold--I think they are absolutely adorable!

Warmly,
Cheryl

I can't believe you didn't sell those cute wee hamsters Ruth...better post them in TBACA's Available Critters, maybe they'll suit us crazy Aussies better! LOL!!
Hugs,
Sandi

What memories, that was the first album I ever bought, loved them. A few years later I knew a former page 3 girl who was in the video, in the ballroom scene.

Glad you had a good day at Hugglets too, must have been a lovely weekend.
