Being a Fox in Iceland

I was attempting to finally continue with my Iceland travel posts – argh, been so busy with LIFE – and came across this set of pics taken just outside Volcano Hotel, where we stopped for two nights after the dog-sledding tour and before moving farther east.Yes, of COURSE I brought along my animal kigurumi – this time a Fox one.

This was the morning after our second night at the hotel.. the morning after the night we had watched the Northern Lights for HOURS! It was really my only chance during the trip to wear it.. ie the 20 mins or so between breakfast and drive-time.DSC_0125.jpgDSC_0130.jpg

Under the costume, I wore two layers of UNIQLO HeatTech (top and bottom), and a fleece pullover.

It was still cold.

Looking rather.. CONSTIPATED here.. but actually I think I was just dying in the cold/trying to warm up my hands.

There was so much dry grass/hay around that I simply had to try lying on it.. and yes! It was quite soft! It could easily be a bed. For a frozen corpse anyway, in that location.

You can get your very own animal kigu from www.kigu.co.uk or www.animalcostumesshop.co.uk 🙂

No way! You saw the Northern Lights. Were they beautiful?? I think I shall buy my own kigu. Hope I’ll fit into it. My height has been an issue every now and then when buying suits. :'( My favourite is the second to last one. Loved it!

p.s. Thanks a bunch for taking a peak at my blog. :]
