How creepy/exciting: YOU could be pictured on this elephant!

Wimbledon-esque Elephant

Scribbles I thought were really cute on one Elephant but didn't like the overall look of it

For the past 2 weeks I have been working at the Wimbledon Tennis Championships- I had to wake up at 5.30 AM every day!! So when I got home at 4 I was ready for bed, never mind traipsing around London. However I did manage to meet up with my Aunt for an afternoon and visit the Elephant Parade at the Royal Hospital Gardens. These oversized elephants were once dotted across central London and now have been auctioned off in aid of Elephant Family to try help to protect the endangered Asian Elephant. There were so many fantastically designed elephants it was hard to pick which ones were my favourites.
One designer's name in particular, Thammakit Thamboon, kept popping up as I noted down my favourite elephants. Some famous designers decided to have a crack at the elephants too; Diane Von Furstenberg, Alice Temperley, Lulu Guinness, Julien MacDonald, & Tommy Hilifger.
I wish I could have bought one but unfortunately I don't think my Wimbledon salary could have covered the cost of an elephant toenail!
