A costume this year...

Normally, I don't wear a costume.  My thought process was:  if some terrified little TOT'r finally makes it to the door I don't want to send them over the edge by a costume.  My youngest son as a 4 year old came running, screaming "scary monkey" down a driveway with a neighbor in a gorilla suit running after him yelling I'm so sorry!  It was funny.  It was traumatic.  It was memorable.  It was classic Halloween!

BUT, I found the most amazing vintage tutu, petticoat, crinoline girl-thing!!  The latex wings I found a few years ago and I do wear them each year.  I love my wings but haven't exploited their scary factor. (You know, that quiet neighbor, kind to children, with a dark side and a body-sized freezer in the garage.)  There is a first time for everything and this is the year for a costume!   I'm thinking striped stockings, some bling, a top, some spats, etc.  You do understand that me in a tutu isn't quite a 3 on the scare-o-meter??

Latex wings & girl thing


Love the wings

Ooooooo baby...
Full dark...

    1. The wings came from a vendor on Ebay several years ago. They're made on a wire frame covered with latex. I wanted another pair (they came in several colors) but the vendor disappeared. Damn the bad luck!
