Teignmouth: VIDEO Fancy Dress For A Year
23 July 2014, 12:29
A woman who literally fancied a change has given away all her clothes so she can wear FANCY DRESS - every day for an entire YEAR.
28-year old Eve Hazelton, has lined up 365 different costumes and will slip into a different one each morning to raise funds for breast cancer.
24 days into her challenge and has already dressed as a cavewoman, a pirate, Robin Hood, Wonder Woman, Princess Fiona from Shrek, Mr Motivator and Goldilocks.
During the coming year she'll transform herself into a gorilla, a banana, a giant Rubik's Cube and has even vowed to attend a friend's wedding in vintage 1950s getup.
Eve from Teignmouth came up with the madcap idea to raise cash for a breast cancer charity.
Her first step was to empty her entire wardrobe into bin bags and donate it all to a Red Cross charity shop.
Fancy dress firm Smiffys who were so impressed with her gesture they offered to supply her with all 365 outfits.
Eve said the nerves kicked in when she realised she would have to go shopping, socialise, go to the gym and even see clients in costume.
But she's so determined to keep to her brief she sleeps in a romper suit and bonnet and goes to the beach in a red Baywatch swimsuit.
Eve decided to support the fight against breast cancer after losing a best friend's mum to the disease.
So far she's raised more than £3,000 - began her 'Fancy Year' on July 1 and posts daily pictures on her website www.myfancyyear.com
She is raising money for CoppaFeel, which raises awareness of breast cancer. To donate £5 by text send FEEL88 £5 to 70070.
