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:
Me, my cousin and my aunt
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. . .
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.
