I’ve told this tale before but my best costume ever was as a stabbed-in-the back ghoul. Recycling a formal spaghetti-strapped black gown, with sheer overlay (which I made myself I might add *buffs nails*). We took a thrift shop spatula with a nice wooden handle, bent the blade and duct-taped it to my back, the handle exiting through a discrete slit in the fabrics. I used a clown white theater makeup (oh that smell!) and then a black to hollow out my eye sockets, finishing off the makeup with an alluring scarlet lipstick and feathery eyelashes, I looked especially expired and creepy. Final touches were black spiked heels, elbow length black satin gloves with a sparkling tiara and choker. I carried an ever re-filled champagne glass to complete my macabre ensemble. Bonus: I got to dress up as a fancy lady – never a downside to that in one’s party-hardy twenties.
What were favorite costumes – parent or kid?
Surfing around the Internet this month I came across a number of fun get ups.
How about the Composer Busts? How To’s
Or maybe Birdlady?
Or maybe a working Nikon camera? How-tos
My fave, Raven 12456′s Calvin & Hobbes.
