We are into the Autumn now, when some people start to think about their seasonal pyjamas. Yahoo finance brought us this summary of great images of matching pyjamas mainly from the US where family festive sleepwear is a tradition. They may be thinking ahead to Christmas in some parts of the US but in the warm sun of Texas they have just had the second weekend of Austin City Limits Music Festival. And in California they have only just enjoyed the Desert Trip Music Festival. The line-up reads like every middle-aged man’s dream team. The night time only, three day concert opened with new nobel prize winner Bob Dylan then The Rolling Stones on Friday; Neil Young and Paul McCartney on Saturday, and finished with Roger Waters and The Who on Sunday. Average age of these performers must be 70 plus. No wonder the event is dubbed “Oldchella” by the LA Times. Bob Dylan, last seen in Las Vegas, is proving elusive to some. It was reported this week that the organisation that awards the Nobel Prize for Literature has said it has stopped trying to contact Bob. “Right now we are doing nothing,” said Sara Danius, permanent secretary of the Swedish Academy.
Being a much smaller country we don’t have the wide range of climate that the USA enjoys. Pretty much all of us associate Autumn with falling leaves (so watch out rail travellers), mists, dark damp evenings and Halloween. Fashion website polyvore had fun trying to predict what Halloween costume you should choose based on your star sign. And our image shows a home made E.T. Halloween costume. The crotched suit was made for two year old Jack by his Mum Stephanie who says she made it over a week-end. If you are looking for a home made Halloween costume you could use our funzees or funskins as a base and then accessorise. Or if you can’t be that bothered how about an animal onesie from our funzoo range – maybe a magical unicorn. And for seasonal pyjamas we recommend our Zooland style in his n her sizes. They are 100% cotton and are unfooted and unhooded to help you sleep.
