• Two images of me and my 5 year old daughter, in the first we are inside, we both have dresses and a head band on. Hers is a black dress with a black space headband, mine is a green cam dinosaur dress with matching headband. In the second photo we are outside, Spike is stood on a wall higher than me, I have a fake leather jacket on with a blue mexican inspired lindy bop dress and snag tights in the beach bum blue colour and my doc martens on.
