Any chance I get to dress up I'll take it. Where most people lose their enthusiasm for dressing up on Halloween as they age, I seem to be moving in the reverse direction. Now I'm old enough to make my own costumes, and thrift store hop, collecting things for my costume vision - as opposed to wearing the cheap premade costumes I was given growing up. This year I had found a vest I thought to be quite charming and was racking my brain to figure out a costume where I could wear it - and I came up with a silent film star! Buster Keaton to be exact. And I loved wearing this costume, dancing in the suit and hat - so much more fun than dancing in the usual attire.
Alos, another idea, for next year, if you're looking for an easy last -minute halloween costume - how about Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany's? All you need is black dress, heels, and a necklace. I did that for the actual Halloween night. All I had to do was find a cigarette holder! I ended up using a long back straw - so easy!
**Big thanks to Amanda, for taking 1000s of photos, and laughing at all my silly faces.
Hope everybody had a fun weekend, in costume or not.
