|So a priest walks into a tornado.....|
Yes, I covered most of my skin in gold body paint (which incidentally I was still digging out of my ears 2 weeks later....) My girlfirend Laura and I decided to go as Sopranos style trophy wives. I bought a crazy Jersey Shore sequinned dress, teased and curled my hair to within an inch of its life, sprayed a can of gold spray on it and spent over an hour coating sketchy gold body paint over any visible skin. We loaded up on cheesy jewellry and left weird gold schmears on everything we touched. I actually ended up meeting a future boyfriend that night. He was dressed as David Bowie from Labrynth; it was love at first costume sight.
Next week I will share my (three!) costumes from last year.
As some of you know, I am giving away a Victory pattern to whoever manages to guess my costume this year.
I've had to purchase 8 yards of organza, 3 yards of tulle, craft glue, rhinestones, pearls and 80 pound fishing line. Make of that what you will.
