I promise to have a new dream post next week, but since it is Halloween, I decided to share some of my costumes. Tis the season to be creative!
My costumes always have some significance for me. I never just throw something together, although with all the items I have collected over the years, I certainly could do that. I am the go to girl for your costume needs, that is for sure. Here are some photos and a bit about why I chose each one as a costume.
You remember my Dee Snider outfit from a previous post? Here is another photo with Ozzy. Dee is one of my heroes. When the theme was rock stars, he was the one who came to mind. See my previous post for more Dee-tails.
I often make a big mess while doing something creative. Then, I start to feel crowded by the mess, so I move into another clean room and begin some other project. Then that room, because of me, will get too messy, so off I go again into yet another room…. which will soon be strewn with my clutter. I am like the Mad Hatter. Move down, clean cup! But I am the one dirtying the cup!
I need someone to follow behind me and straighten up so by the time I get back to room one, it is clean again.
Here I am as Mozart. I won this costume contest as well.
I decided to be Mozart because I have a degree in music, play a little keyboard (actually that is truly a LITTLE keyboard) and my dad’s side is from Austria. And Mozart liked to wear wigs.
And here I am as Mary Poppins, bird head umbrella in hand. I love attention to detail!
I chose to dress as Mary Poppins because Julie Andrews is one of my favorites. I used to try and fly with my umbrella when I was a kid. Didn’t you? And here is me with “Burt” the chimney sweep.
We sang all the karaoke songs from Mary Poppins. Love that movie!
And here I am as a 1930’s Jazz singer.
Don’t you love the dress? Fabulous Ebay find. Probably my favorite formal. And I found a matching hat somewhere else. How lucky was that! I chose to dress as a Jazz singer because…well…I always wanted to be a jazz singer!
And here I am as Natasha Fatale from Rocky & Bullwinkle. What awesome eyebrows!
I chose to be her because Natasha is Russian and I’m of Russian decent. And she was the smart one. Love her accent. She sounds like my aunts on my dad’s side. Had a lot of fun with this costume! Check out the wanted poster put there just for me! I carry my gun in my cleavage.
And here I am as Felicity Shagwell From Austin Powers.
I decided to be her because people think I look like her. Well maybe when I was in my 20s! But I do see the resemblance. And I have a cool car. I added a few more flowers to it just for the occasion. Here I am with Austin Powers.
And this is my favorite wig creation: a realistic mohawk. I cut and tinted this one. You can’t find a realist mohawk off the shelf so I had to create one.
No, I didn’t shave my head, and the nose ring and tattoo are fake too. How fun is that!
At this point you are probably wondering what I really look like!
I can create just about any style of wig, costume or realistic. No I don’t make the wigs, but I can alter a stock item to look the way you want it. This one above is human hair so I was able to tint it rainbow. I can do miracles with synthetic wigs as well. Check out baronunlimited.com for awesome wigs.
