I do declare that costume season has begun!
And look how excited I am about it. . .
First, I get to dress up in my Thanksgiving Pilgrim costume and crawl through the streets of Mountain View imbibing questionable amounts of alcoholic beverages.
Then I get to wear my Santa Con Santa outfit for the South Bay Santa Con!
Ditto with the street crawling and questionable amounts of alcoholic beverages.
Finally, there’s STAR WARS!
Yes folks, I’m going to see Star Wars IN COSTUME.
Princess Leia, to be exact.
Last time I wore the outfit I got stopped and people asked to take pictures with me.
It was quite fun!
And of course, Bay Boy’s birthday party is coming up and that’s always a good opportunity to get creative and wear something outrageous.
Can’t wait for the festivities to begin!
Any excuse for a pub crawl is good enough reason to pub crawl, right?
Well, as it turns out there are numerous Santa Cons coming up and I’m fully prepared with a buttload of Santa costumes I can wear – everything from a bare assed elf to Mrs. Claus.
What you don’t know is there there is a little known but equally awesome pub crawl called The Pilgrim’s Progressive.
Basically you dress up like a pilgrim, turkey, or other Thanksgiving themed costume and you crawl through the pubs of downtown Mountain View.
Yesterday, I pulled out all my Santa Con costumes.
Now I’ve got to pull out my pilgrim costume from last year (which I never got to wear, boo!).
Because this year I AM GOING TO BE A PILGRIM crawling down Castro Street in downtown Mountain View, imbibing questionable quantities of liquid courage as I go.
Check me out. . .
Here’s my inspiration for my costume.
And here’s what I’ve assembled for my costume:
Is it not THE BOMB as far as pilgrim costumes go? I’d like to thank etsy for the awesome cape and bonnet (which I did not want to sew myself).
Watch out Mountain View, the pilgrims are coming!
Last year, some friends hosted a Pilgrim Bar Crawl in Downtown Mountain View which I missed out on attending.
Costumes were OPTIONAL, however being the creative people that we are, many people dressed up as turkeys and pilgrims.
One woman even MADE A SKIRT OUT OF STUFFED TURKEYS!
It was incredible.
So incredible, I’m determined to put together a costume for this year’s Thanksgiving Pub Crawl.
THIS costume was my inspiration:
I managed to find a brown dress on Amazon, which will fit nicely over my white petticoat.
Then I bought a little tiny white apron:
And a black belt with an antique silver buckle:
Plus a black capelet with a demure little white collar attached:
And a white bonnet which makes me feel like Strawberry Shortcake:
And finally, the white wrist cuffs:
I debated on buying real white/black BDSM cuffs, just to be cheeky and make the costume a bit edgy but in the end I opted for the more prim plain white cuffs.
So there you have it – a pilgrim costume just for this pub crawl.
Should be TONS OF FUN!
