Luckily for Katrina, her children or any other children with other patrons were not present, so the item went unnoticed by innocent little eyes.

Still, the mum could see the fun side of things and revealed that while it’s definitely not something she would show the kids, she’s not exactly ruling out buying it for her next children’s fancy dress party. adults.
