Per government order, I am sheltering in place at home with my family.
It’s quite a thing we’re going through now and I confess I am having a hard time writing with all the worry that’s shooting around in my brain.
I’m sure the same worries are floating around in your head as well so I won’t beleaguer the topic.
The bad news is that I’m stuck in a house.
The good news is that so far we are all healthy.
I scoped out Amazon for wigs yesterday, wanting to find a wig for my Latex Velma costume.
At first I thought MAYBE I could get away with something edgy – like an orange wig with brown roots:
Then I decided against it because Velma is nothing if not a slave to her geeky fashion and ombre hair is just a little too hip for that hipster.
I was going to get this:
But then I remembered that the costume I bought for Velma automatically came with a brown bob wig and glasses, so BONUS!
I just saved some money.
I’ve been wanting to do a Scooby Doo costume for FOREVER.
Not a Daphne costume, but a VELMA costume.
Velma’s hot in a sort of brainy-meets-skater-chick kinda way.
I’ve loved her forever.
My Velma costume is atypical, however.
You see, I don’t just want to be Velma in an orange sweater and skirt.
I want to be LATEX VELMA.
I want to get all decked out in an orange latex shirt and shirt and channel my inner nerd.
I found Kitalyst on etsy and I’m posting this here because they have an AMAZING LATEX VELMA costume for $160 and in non-standard sizes.
Color me happy!
And since I now have a local friend I can impress with my costumes (hello ROLEPLAY) I’m hoping he harbors an inner Velma fetish and will enjoy the costume as much as I do.
