Okay, I know I said I was going to go with the bar maid costume, and I was all set to do that, and I'd still like to, but my boss just bought me a dress - is that weird? She originally bought it for herself, but when it arrived she opened it and apparently figured it was perfect for me, so she gave it to me. It's beautiful.
It's a white cotton Mexican-style dress, with the off-the-shoulder sleeves and it looks like all the lacing was hand-tatted. It's pretty amazing, and even though it's totally work-inappropriate, I know she'd really like to see me in it. Also, since we're doing a combination Halloween/Dia de los Muertos party, it would probably be a more relevant choice.
But I don't want to just wear the dress and that's it. I want to do something creative with it that doesn't involve painting, sewing, cutting, or otherwise mutilating this beautiful dress at all. Maybe going as a ghost or something? Gah, I don't know. I'm totally at a loss. Help me, oh my brothers!
Maybe you could go as a Maya or Aztec woman ?
