a very sensual halloween


Pants! Sneakers! A Bellagio fanny pack! This is my Wine Country Tourist costume, which is especially funny if you've ever lived in Northern California but also funny because look at those pants. I didn't even own a pair of sneakers until a few weeks when it dawned on me that perhaps my epic walks around San Francisco's hilly terrain would ruin my feet if I kept always wearing my vintage Ferragamos. And then I realized they were perfect for a costume involving mostly just the yuckiest clothes I could find! I've never felt so incredibly uncomfortable in an outfit before... you know, emotionally. But for the above photo it was well worth the psychological pain. And the chafing.

Lauren was Sandy from Grease... but I'm pretty sure my costume was still sexier.

That's my roommate Julia dressed as a Creepy Old Man or Woman (and wearing mostly things from my closet, ha).





My friend Thomas always goes full-on drag for Halloween and I love it.





Yeah, I went grocery shopping in my costume.

Umm this is adorable, and I love that you're drinking two buck chuck. Also, Creepy Old Man or Woman is hilarious. Think I've seen me one (or more) of those on the train.

Do people really dress like that when they're touring the wine country? Absolutely hilarious. I live in Minnesota and while we don't have a whole lot of wine country, we sure do have what you call "Minnesota Moms". You've given me a costume idea for next year.
