I love dressing up in big animal costumes and after years of hiring them for our work's Christmas party, I decided this year to take the plunge and buy one for good!

I'm sure I can put it to good use!

I've lived in London for over ten years now and have seen most of the tourist attractions it has to offer, so as if introducing them to an old friend, I took Vince Kong along to meet the Queen. She wasn't in sadly.

Vince Kong runs the British 10km

Vince Kong commutes to work

Rush hour in Vince Kong world

I have a relatively easy journey to work each day, so why the hell would I get up an hour earlier in order to embark on a journey that's twice as long? Any excuse to become Vince Kong once again!

Shopping for bananas

One of the first things I wanted to do when I got my gorilla suit was to head to the supermarket. Luckily for me, there’s a massive Tesco’s just down the road.
