Shelter in Place

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.

Oh no!

I want to be LATEX VELMA.

That’s right!

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.

Jinkies!
