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?

OH! La! La! I really hope you win! This is so adorable! I love it! :)

No Fancy Christmas party! Just simple stuff, maybe one visit with our friend to our favorite restaurant (Brie Cheese Fondue on the menu). Of course I will try do over dress and Django will probably make me change into more appropriate! ;)

That skirt is mind blasting (Russell Peter's anyome?). I cannot wrap my head around how big it is. You better win, just for the volume!

Krystal said...

amazing! Being sexy doesn't mean showing a lot of skin! Not sure why people feel that sexiness translates into that, but hey.

The wig's color is really great, too.

San said...

Well, you would win if I had to decide. That skirt is AWESOME.

Amy said...

OMG, if you don't win, I would question the validity of the contest. LOL You look amazing! Love it!!

Have fun.

wow! this is so "fancy"! :D So nice to find thing like all of your today's outfit from thrift shops! I want some here in Istanbul too! I've never been to a dress party in my life! 2010 is a year of resolution! (and one more year to 30...) that's why I'm planning to find one to go :D You look "fantastic"! (translation: so sexy! yay!) :)

Kyla said...

Sounds likes so much fun and I love this costume. I use the same explicitives when bitching about the weather this time of year. "Cold as balls" usually comes out at least once a day.

carly. said...

um, WOW!
that is THE best skirt i've ever seen...sooo amazing!! $6? what a steal!! you look awesome. let us know if you win!!

ps: cute wig too ;)

Clare said...

Yeah, I definitely don't mind the expletives. Like Kyla said, "cold as balls" is a majorly overused part of my daily vocabulary in winter. I ADORE that skirt. I love how huge it is. Just perfect!

Ash said...
