a lump of coal in your stocking
I am going to a Fancy Dress (Translate: SEXY) Santa Pub Crawl tomorrow night and I am told there is a contest for best costume. Well, Ah hem, it will be snowing balls tomorrow night and freezing D#$% (sorry, don't want to offend anyone, but cold weather makes me angry) and in my book, Sexy and cold do not belong in the same sentence no matter how many profanities you use. My costume has to be more theory, like "what do bad little boys and girls get for Christmas?" I hope this HUGE ruffled skirt somewhat resembles a huge lump of coal! I found it at the Goodwill for $6 and built the rest of my costume around it from other second hand finds including the lace head wrap, lace shirt, shiny disco leggings, and belt. The wig was from a costume a few years back, and my trusty faux leather booties will stand up to snow, water and salt damage! Its actually pretty warm too, but even so, and considering I will be wearing a "Liquid Jacket" (Korbel anyone??!!) I still have a super heavy vintage cloak I will take for the outdoor bar hopping part. I truly hope there will not be any CRAWLING involved.
Is anyone else going to a fancy dress Christmas party? What are you going as?
