Francesca and Plumcake want to know:
What are you going to be for Halloween?
Have you ever won a costume contest? If so, what was the costume?
What is your All Time Number One With a Bullet best costume idea? (hmm, come to think of it, in the right crowd being a Number One With a Bullet would be a GREAT costume)
I once made an a-line dress out of two Twister boards, wore one spinner as a rakish chapeau and made the other into a handbag with the words “Invitation Only” writ large to ward off the handsy (this worked for the most part, a Classics professor –I won’t say of which institute of higher education, suffice it to say it was a University in Texas– dressed as Skeletor did get a little frisky, but he was promptly mule-kicked in his grey skull) . I slapped on some white vinyl go-go boots and a jaunty blue wig and was out the door. It was such a hit that I won the costume contest at the legendary Alamo Drafthouse, which is accordinging to Entertainment Weekly and a whole mess of other places, the best place in America to see a movie.
Unfortunately, a costume designer must have been in the audience that night because several months later I saw my entire costume, down to the wigs, reproduced faithfully –advertising a new musical!
