AND I HAVEN’T SORTED MY HALLOWEEN COSTUME YET!
I’ve been a little bit busy. Last weekend I went tramping, which was epic.
But we’re really getting to crunch time here, people! Halloween is a VERY serious business – as you well know. Last year’s costume is going to be hard (if not impossible) to beat. I mean, David Bowie. C’mon!
So this year I was thinking that I would go as the thing I’ve wanted to go as since after 2006. A matador! I also think this would be a great “couples costume” as one could be the matador and the other could be the bull!
Pretty much I just want to sew a whole lotta sequins onto some really tight black pants, wear a jacket with shoulder pads and wave around a red cape… Thank goodness the weekend before Halloween is a 3 day weekend here in NZ – as I will need all 72 of those hours to make my “suit of lights”.
BUT I am beginning to think that perhaps I’ve waited too long and my matador costume might be a tad too ambitious for this year (and there is that whole lack of a bull… er, I mean, bf, aspect). So I’ve had some other ideas. All of them too, are men. (Halloween. ‘Tis the season for socially acceptable cross-dressing.)
Can you guess why?!
Yeah. I can rock that hair. Actually, I would not just be justin beiber, I was thinking, “justin beiber slightly mutilated”. Maybe justin beiber zombie? Or just a Justin Beiber who has been killed in some horrendous way. Thoughts? Suggestions?
I think it would be hilarious, but as usual I’m concerned people may not actually know what I’m dressed up as.
There is a nice little post here on how to make your own Freddy Mercury costume. I think it would be fun. And I’d get to wear a mustache. And I could totally rock the hair again (slick it back and add some coloured hairspray – voila!).
SO I guess at this point I’m still undecided. Which one can I truly pull off with only 2 weeks to go ’til H-day (party, that is)? I kind of think I might be leaning towards the Beiber plan (just because it would be kinda hilarious, although, would I have to learn his songs?! *cringe*). I guess it might all just come down to what clothing items are easiest for me to locate (purple cardigan, anyone?).
