At the latest Village meeting for Burning Man, the theme was Super heroes and Super Villains.
After contemplating several options, including quite a few Marvel villains, I decided to go with Natasha Romanoff (aka Black Widow).
The thing about the costume is that it JUST BARELY FIT.
Which means I was struggling to get into it.
AND I was struggling even harder to get out of it.
I struggled so hard to get out of it that I SPLIT THE ZIPPER!
I busted the zipper while sitting on the toilet going pee.
Honestly, you spread your knees JUST A LITTLE BIT SO YOU CAN WIPE and WHOOPS!
You’ve busted your zipper.
In any case, I took the outfit to Tejas’ house and he proceeded to stitch me into my costume with leather thread and an industrial strength needle.
This is important when sewing through a faux leather costume.
The important thing to note here is that I only had the capacity to stay as long as my bladder wasn’t full.
The minute I had to pee, I had to go home.
It’s an adventure, folks.
I’ve never backed down from a challenge.
I even drank beer when I was there.
In the end, I had a blast as a BLOND Black Widow.
Tejas made me take off my red wig.
He said I made a lousy redhead and I’m not sure he wasn’t’ right.
The addendum to this post is that when I got home, I had to pee rather desperately, but I couldn’t get out of my jumpsuit.
Did I pee my pants?
I had to ask my 19 year old son for help.
You can imagine how THRILLED he was helping his mom out of a sweaty bodysuit.
I believe he let out a string of expletives then suggested that I “act my age.”
