Put your money where your mouth is

Well, I did it.

I bought my Freddie Mercury costume.

Incidentally, in case you’re wondering what the hardest part about crafting this costumes is, it’s finding those freaking white track pants with the red side stripe.

Red track pants with white side stripe, no problem.

But white with red?

Not so easy.

Turns out, I had to buy baseball pants to get what I need.

I mean yes, that red stripe should be wider, but I can’t be too picky for this costume or it’ll never be completed.

I also got a lovely white t-shirt with a v-neck to go with it.

And, just to be as realistic as I can be considering I’m a blond woman with breasts and a pussy and not a Persian man from Zanzibar with chest hair and a mustache, I got some hairy accessories to go with:

Of course, this outfit would be COMPLETELY incomplete without this:

I swear, it gives me chills just thinking about slipping on this costume.  I can’t wait to pair it all with the LED light up white sneakers:

They’re not quite Freddie Mercury style but they are burner style and so I’m going to wear them to complete the outfit.

Can’t wait for my birthday now and the chance to wear my costume!

I heart etsy

It may come as no surprise to you that I am a BIG fan of etsy.  Huge!

With all the burner activities and parties that come up, etsy is my go-to resource for costumes and extras.  Check out some of my favorites below:

UV Reactive leggings.  If I was a flow artist, I’d be all over these…

Again, with the UV reactive Cyberlox.  Awesome and full of color.

Mermaid hair falls.  I love these, but at $395 they’re out of my price range.etsy3

Ear cuff.  Totally gorgeous.  Would love to wear this to a festival.  Not Burning Man safe (feathers are MOOP).etsy4

I love these earrings because they have a bit of everything thrown into them.etsy5

Rhinestone ribbon trim.  For my hat.etsy6

Rainbow tutu with 60 LED lights.  I bought this, I just couldn’t pass it up.etsy7

Wings.  And pretty reasonable priced ones for what they are.

An awesome spring wig.  Because someone is going to throw a French Renaissance party and I can’t wait to look like Marie Antionette.  We share the same birthday!

So you know, if you’re looking for something unique and special, there’s no better place to go than etsy.  I swear the most creative artists get online there to sell their crafts and it’s mind-boggling how incredibly talented they are.

If you’re limited only by your imagination, then these artists are SOARING!

Angels/Demons

New costume, natch.

For an Angels/Demons costume party that I’ll be taking a shift bartending at.

First comes the dress.

I asked my friend Krunch to weigh in on which was more evil of the three dresses I was looking at, and he picked #2.

dressesThen I found some evilish black wings to wear…

wingsAnd all I need to do is select some horns to go with. What do you prefer?

It’s all coming together quite nicely, considering I have a long black wig to pair with the costume, since my blond hair (mistakenly) makes me look rather innocent and angelic.

black wigI also bought some mini black sclera contact lenses.  Just to make me look creepy.  I wanted to get the large black sclera contact lenses but figured they’d irritate my eyes.

Pair it all with some deep red or black lipstick and a smoky eye and you’ve got yourself Michelle a la Demon!

Who wants to sin?
