Human Disco Ball

I went to a pre-Halloween party last week.

It was a COSTUME party and you know I’m a sucker for a good costume party.

I went as Miss Piggy from The Muppets.

After a delicious socially distanced feast for dinner, we got down to socially distant dancing and revelry.

I think I can safely say a good time was had by all, especially me since it was the debut for my Miss Piggy costume.

I expect it to get some seriously heavy rotation in my costume closet.

The dress was spectacular!

It lit up the inside of the car I was riding in with a million glittering points of light when the sun hit it.

As my friend put it, “You’re your own disco ball!”

And indeed I was.

Miss Piggy dress – $125
Miss Piggy stole – $90
Miss Piggy heels – $55
Miss piggy nose and ears – $45

Turning into a human disco ball for the evening – PRICELESS!

Planning ahead

The difference between THIS pig mask:

And this pig mask:

Is that the first pig mask can be used at a socially distant Halloween party whereas the second one, while looking awfully realistic and attractive (for a pig nose), will not prevent the spread of covid.

Therefore I bought the first one today and I am thanking my lucky stars that I remembered this slight but ever so significant detail BEFORE the party!

Trials and tribulations

I bought a lovely silver sequin dress for my Miss Piggy costume.

The problem is, there’s no thigh revealing side slit!

The slide slit is missing.

But that can be fixed by a skilled seamstress, no?

Well, the first place I went to wouldn’t alter the dress, but the SECOND place I went to agreed to give me a nice slit up the right side of the dress for $32.

The shoes I bought also needed a little help.

So I took them in to a repair shop for a little extra elastic.

My pink faux fur stole arrived and looks remarkably pale and almost purple-ish.

But It’ll work.

I actually think the coolness of the pink will go quite nicely with the silver dress.

It’s the ballerina pink gloves which might give me trouble.

I may need to shop for paler pink gloves to match the pink faux fur stole, like these sheer pink opera gloves:

And there you have it, a costume ready for a socially distanced Halloween Party.

Now, if only I knew of one. . .

 

Just kidding.  I’m going.

Miss Piggy

More than anything, I NEED this costume:

Yes, I am totally crushing on Miss Piggy right now.

As in Kermit the Frog’s paramour lady love.

Pig ears ($9.99):

More expensive HERE ($33.99 with tail).

Pig nose ($3.60):

More expensive HERE ($11.99).

Silver sequin strapless gown ($106.99):

Also HERE ($124.50) and HERE ($119.99) for similar $.

Les expensive silver sequin dress HERE ($54.00) and HERE ($32.99).

Pink stole ($16.99):

PINK (not purple gloves, because Miss Piggy is a PINK lady – $10.99):

Also here, in a more saturated pink ($11.87).

Long blonde wig ($14.99):

And there you have it.

Miss Piggy!

BTW, I think my friend Rupert needs to throw a MUPPET-THEMED party and invite everyone to come as their favorite Muppet.

I think I know a few STELLAR Miss Piggies!

And a couple OUTSTANDING Kermit The Frogs!

And don’t get me started on all the ANIMALS out there. . .

Costumes I’m DYING to get

It’s my favorite time of year.

The weather changes and becomes cooler.

We start gearing up for the holidays.

AND there’s Halloween, only my most favorite holiday of them all.

The algorithms over at Facebook are having their hey day with me, showing me all sorts of costumes and accoutrement for Halloween.

Here are a few stand outs from HalloweenCostumes.com.

Ruby from the Fifth Element. Because I can’t fit in a LeeLoo bandage costume.

Ludo from Labyrinth. Because I really love Labyrinth and I already have a Sarah costume.

Lil Kim purple catsuit with matching nipple pasty.  Because I love modern pop culture costume references.

Ace Ventura.  Because he’s the best and it looks like an easy costume to pull off.  Love you Jim Carrey!

Claire from The Breakfast Club.  Once again, LOVE pop culture references.  Does it come with a John Bender accessory, I wonder. . .

Sarah from Labyrinth.  I already have a quinceañera dress I wear as a Labyrinth costume, but this one is so much nicer.

Beauty School Dropout costume from Grease.  Because I already have a Hot Sandy costume.

Another good source of women’s costumes is Fashion Nova.

Here are a few outstanding costumes:

A knock off of Jennifer Lopez’s famous plunging green Versace gown from the 2000 Grammys.

Madonna’s Take A Bow costume.  Because we’ve already established I’m a sucker for pop culture references.

Take this all with a grain of salt.

I won’t be ordering them all.

But I plan to pick up a few for my closet.

Now if I could just arrange for a party!

Halloween costumes

Halloween is the one night a year when a girl can dress like a total slut and no other girls can say anything about it.

Hardcore girls just wear lingerie and some form of animal ears.

I’m stumped however as to what I’ll wear this year, if I wear anything.

Thanks to covid.

Usually I go to a party at my Aunt and Uncle’s house but that’s not happening this year so what’s a girl with 10 totes full of costumes supposed to do?

Perhaps put them on and take pictures in them for my blog?

I always blog when I’m working on the costumes, but never the finished product.

My question to you is this, IF I were to model my costumes for the blog, which ones do you want to see?

Boobs

A few weeks ago, I bought this dress from Fashion Nova:

I happen to love it and think it makes a perfect fall dress.

Well, two things – one, it’s super long. Like so long I had to hem it a good 8-12 inches, so that it wouldn’t drag on the ground.

And two, you can’t wear a bra with this dress due to the plunging neckline in front AND in back.

So yesterday, I hopped online and I bought a bunch of adhesive bras.

Yes, I am going to attempt to use adhesive to tame my size G kittens.

Who knows if it’ll work or not.

First, I bought your classic boob tape:

Then I got some special “lifting” adhesive bras, just in case the engineering of a bra using tape is beyond my capacity:

And finally, I bought some of those cute bunny eared adhesive bras because YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT’S GOING TO WORK:

In reality, it’ll probably take a combination of these three items to actually secure my breasts in their proper place while wearing this dress.

For inspiration, I’m looking at this pic of Kim Kardashian:

Kim’s got some serious cleavage too and she got the tape to work for her (of course, she’s using duct tape), so I am hopeful that I will have similar results.

Wish me luck!

I swear

No, I’m not doing it.

But I WANT to. . .

Here’s the $69.99 costume for Vivian Ward, one of the main characters in the movie Pretty Woman.

A cheaper version of the dress is HERE.

They generally come with a fake blond bob wig, an o-ring dress, a black beret, and necklaces so all that’s left to get are the boots:

You can find thick girl boots HERE, and regular OTK boots HERE.

But I’m not buying this costume.

I SWEAR, I’m not!

Total insanity

I hate to admit it, but I love the W.A.P. music video with Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion.

In it, Kylie Jenner walks down a long hallway in an AMAZING one piece leopard skin suit with matching gloves and cloak.

I heart it SO MUCH!

There’s a young woman who is very talented who MAKES this costume and sells it on the internet.

I found her on TikTok.

Her affection for costuming reminds me of myself, but with better clothing sewing skills:

I’m happy to announce that I’ve ordered one costume from her.

Seeing as how I’m losing weight, I’ve decided to order my costume in a smaller size than I am right now.

Which is why, for the moment, it will be a BEDROOM ONLY costume.

But in the future, who knows. . .

Pretty Woman

I’m working on another costume.

This time I was inspired by the movie Pretty Woman.

No, I’m not working on re-creating the Vivian Ward O-ring party girl dress:

I’m working on the brown polka dot dress and hat outfit she wore to the polo matches:

I’ve got the dress all picked out and I’m buying two so that I can cut one dress and make a bow for the matching hat:

Here’s the hat:

And here’s the gloves:

It’s a fairly simple outfit, doesn’t require too many items to be purchased.

I have the brown belt and white shoes already.

Now all I need is for someone to throw a 1990s themed party so that I have somewhere to wear it to. . .
