I LOVE Halloween. And if anybody's seen "Mean Girls," I go by their standards--with a twist. In "Mean Girls," for those who haven't seen it, Lindsay Lohan's character explains, "Halloween is the one night a year when girls can dress like a total slut and no other girls can say anything about it."
ANYWAY, I don't randomly take a normal costume and make it slutty (ie. wearing mouse ears with lingerie), I dress up as a "slutty," "promiscuous," or "sexually avant garde" celebrity, and go to town.
2 years ago I was Courtney Love:
(and my friend was Slash--for my Rockstar Birthday Party)
Not exactly a "crafty" costume
Anyway, last year I wanted to top the hickey-laden, track-mark covered, unshowered, drunken wench (somebody tried to pull my hair off b/c they thought it was a wig). Our Halloween Party theme was "80s" (how original..)...and I thought who better than the Material Girl?
Here are pix of the costume top(it's hanging up in my living room b/c I love it and decided it should be displayed):
Here are pix of me wearing the costume (read: I'm a one-bottle-Lily, so these are kind of scary!):
(the last one I was dancing to a Michael Jackson song I think)
Anyway, sorry for the blurry pix in the costume...I obviously didn't take them
