Midas Touch

I’m seriously bummed that Burning Man 2018 is over.

What will I do with my time now that I don’t need to plan how to survive in an inhospitable alpine desert environment for a week?

Plan more costumes, of course!

I’ve been thinking it’s time to put together a GOLD outfit.

Something very monochromatic with gold EVERYTHING!

I’ll be a dancing queen.

Here’s what I’ve dug up so far:

I LOVE the idea of combining the winged headdress with actual wings on your shoulders, though in practice I might leave this feature out since walking around in wings is really annoying.

You bump into everyone.

I guess you could say that since Burning Man 2018 is complete, I’m back to the drawing board as far as costumes go.

Time to design some more.

For sure I’m going to base them on bathing suits, since swimsuits are compact as well as fashionable.

What do you think of my Midas Touch costume?

New Year’s Eve soiree

Okay, so I’m planning on getting dressed super fancy for New Year’s Eve this year.

Last year I wore a dress that fit me horribly.  It was way too large and the top kept falling down.

Good for the guests, bad for me.

This year I’ve planned ahead and will be getting my dress early.

Here are the two front runners:

I’m really drawn to the blue, but the gold is stunning as well (so I got both).

I’m also a little bit addicted to THIS dress (because of the color):

You can never go wrong in red, can you?  I just read that men are more attracted to women wearing red than in any other color because it symbolizes sexual readiness.

Ha!

Looks like I’ll have to go to SEVERAL parties -OR- have wardrobe changes!
