On the subject of Halloween costumes: I’m usually pretty lazy when it comes to Halloween… last year I just wore a cute flowered dress and said I was a “field of flowers.” Yeah, lazy.
This year we hosted a party so I wanted to do something closer to an actual costume. I’m still pretty lazy, so I went with the easiest costume I could think of, but also something that I (and Sam) would enjoy. Can you guess? A cat, of course!
So I found some ears at Wal-Mart (unfortunately, they had blue leopard print around the rims… grr, what’s wrong with solid color?) and a tail. (Funny story… I went to Dirt Cheap, a pretty gross discount store with crazy disorganized shelves and merchandise all over the floor. I found a kid’s Zebra costume set, but I didn’t like the ears so I found a set with the ears missing and bought the tail. Sam says it looks like a horse’s tail but I think it passes as a cat’s tail just fine.)
Friday night, I wore a black dress with a belt so I could clip on the tail. Then I dew on whiskers with eyeliner and a nose with some lipstick. And it made me remember… doing the same thing for a friend’s graduation party my senior year of high school.
In the Past…
and the Present!
