So I'm Jana-who-creates' date for a Halloween party where her friend's band is playing and I found out today that it is a costume party.
My plan for Halloween parties this year was for theCSO and myself to attend as Voltaire and Mme DuChatelet.
But Mme DuChatelet isn't so great a costume on its own.
I tried to sell JwC on going as Molly Weasely and Bellatrix LeStrange, but no dice.
Anyway, suggestions welcome.
As far as I can tell, most halloween costumes fall into one of several categories
3. Totally lacking in dignity. (E.g. dress in pink, put a shoe on your head, go as "gum stuck on the bottom of somebody's shoe")
None of these categories particularly rock my world.
1. Thanks for the love for my Molly-and-Bellatrix plan. But if my friend isn't into it, she's not. She's thinking of going as a robot.
2. PG is awesomesauce and will be invited to every Halloween party I ever have.
3. Since Halloween is all about slutty, scary and lacking in dignity, it seems only logical to go as Amy Winehouse. A black wig, some tacky jewelry and a bunch of fake tattoos would be easy enough to do. But I'm worried that I would be cold as her iconic look is ripped jeans and a tank top. Also, I go back and forth on whether it is in poor taste because I honestly expect her to drop dead any minute...
