Lizzo-inspired performer

Sorry for the gap in posting, I’ve been sick since Sunday.

For my aunt and uncle’s post-Halloween costume party which took place on my birthday, I dressed up as a Lizzo-inspired performer.

No one is Lizzo but Lizzo, that’s for sure.

And certainly not this white girl who loves her music.

The unfortunate thing is that I was coming down with a head cold that night and so I wasn’t feeling my absolute best.

But I did shots of tequila with the best of them.

I also drank something called Truly, which is just like White Claw hard seltzer.

It was yummy.

All in all I had a great time.

My aunt really goes all out with the Halloween decorations.

I even got to work my magic making one aunt into a sexy glittery green dragon and another aunt into a deer.

And just to prove I was there, here are a few pics from the night:

If I’m shinin’ everybody gonna shine. . .

For Halloween, I want to make a Lizzo-inspired costume

I mean OBVIOUSLY as a white chick, there’s nothing I can do about my skin tone.

But her ICONIC STYLE?

Definitely right up my alley.

This dress from the BETs is quite inspirational and I LOVE THE IDEA of getting dressed up in a wedding gown style and emulating not just Lizzo but also Madonna and Britney Spears.

I found something similar on Fashion Nova, not exactly the skirt and bustier combo I was looking for, but CLOSE:

Of course, I need to accessorize with a white lacy veil, square black sunglasses, white sneakers and FLUTE:

And there you have it – a Lizzo-inspired Halloween costume.

If I’m shinin’ everybody gonna shine. . .

Down the Rabbit Hole

It’s nearly fall y’all.

And you know what that means – Halloween!

Yes, it’s my favorite holiday of the whole year.

As a child, I remember countless costume birthday parties my family hosted for me since my birthday falls just two days after Halloween.

I’ve started brain storming for a new costume idea (despite the fact that I have enough costumes to start my own costume shop).

A few that have started to bounce around in my brain:

Uma Thurman’s Bride character in Kill Bill:

Miley Cyrus as Ashley O:

And I REALLY would like to emulate Lizzo somehow but I just don’t think that’s politically correct:

As it turns out on my ACTUAL birthday, unSCruz is planning an overnight event at the Fairgrounds called “2nd Annual Monster’s Ball:  Beyond the Rabbit Hole.”

Ducking down rabbit holes is something I’m familiar with and I’m inclined to celebrate my birthday there this year, in which case I will need an Alice in Wonderland costume.

I already have a White Rabbit costume:

I also have a black burner bunny costume I could wear:

And a pink one:

So I’ve got plenty to choose from.

Or I just might put together something new.

Something no one has ever seen before.

It’s not every day I celebrate my birthday at a rave.
