halloween sequins & feathers


Oh, Halloween. Every year I look forward to you with both excitement and dread, because I know I will have to think of something better each year to top the last costume (see evidence here, here, and here). This year I stumbled upon the actual costume before thinking of the character. I found this crazy sequined getup and decided to be an Aging Showgirl, complete with terrible makeup, a bottle of Lillet, and decades of regret. She had her moment in the spotlight and now she's hanging on by a thread... and clearly I take this a bit too seriously.

Oh my! You are fantastic! this got me thinking of the wonderful character Ms Dinsmoor in the movie adaption of Great expectations. I've always said that would be a dream role. Such a wonderful and crazy character!
