This was a pretty good one, all things considered.
Earlier in the day, the roomies and I went to Farmers Market. Lots of people and kids in costumes:
He's a unicorn!
Mario and the Princess. And get this: they were selling mushrooms!
The lovely Melissa of Missionary Chocolates
Steampunk Batman and Catwoman
Cutest. Cowgirl. Ever.
aaaand my ovaries just exploded
She's a Stegosaurus. And totally stoked about Halloween.
Rosie the Riveter! (maybe my fave costume of the day)
The we went out salsa dancing at night.
Here are my awesome Steampunk roommates:
Here's the shot you've all been waiting for, my costume:
Holly Golightly (Audrey Hepburn) a la Breakfast at Tiffany's (my fave movie)
The hair was a challenge and I had more hairspray in there than could destroy the entire ozone layer.
Several people got my costume right off, mostly girls, but a couple guys too. At least 3 people thought I was Jackie O, who was gorgeous, so I'll take it. Plus, I think I may resemble Jackie more than Audrey in the face. So whatevs. Maybe I'll go as Jackie next year and wear a pillbox hat. And at least a few people guessed Mad Men. Which is right around the same time period, so awesome.
My camera died so I didn't get many shots at the dance. But there were so cool costumes.
I danced a bit. Got molested whilst dancing with a little Latin man who offered me "private" dance lessons ifyouknowwhatImean. I politely declined.
Got "the look" from a girl who thought I was hitting on her man when he was talking to me as I was just trying to order some water at the bar. C'mon lady! I don't want your skinny ass man.
Made a couple of new friends but neglected to exchange any info. Brilliant.
And stood around looking Audrey-chic most of the night with my sunglasses (because I couldn't see shit with them on) and a martini glass (because Holly wouldn't hold a beer bottle).
