Nothing To Wear? Aw, Sheet.
I have no actual plans for the day of Halloween, but I do have a party this weekend. It's after-the-fact, but should be fun. And I do enjoy the challenge of what to be. What actor doesn't like to have full creative control of their costumes?
However, ideas that I have the means to execute easily and cheaply are hard to come by. And I do not buy my costumes - except that one year I was a boyscout. My cousin found the shirt at a Sal-Val and I found matching shorts then bought the rest of the get-up at the official Boyscouts of America store in the Empire State Building. (If you are a boyscout - I meant no disrespect). Anywho, when faced with a costume conundrum, I always challenge myself to see what I can make out of a sheet.
- A mummy
- "Day" to my roommate's "Night" (Yes, every cloud did have a silver lining)
- Mother Teresa, and my cohort's Gandhi gear was also a sheet. (I did a some research for this costume and learned that MT wasn't as widely liked as I'd always thought. Turns out, in a country where millions starve due to overpopulation, the Catholic stance against birth control sort of pisses a lot of people off. I just thought that was interesting.)
Oh, and this year I have opted for the classic sheet costume: a toga. Although there was a lot of sewing involved. And I also used a curtain sheer. And it's kinda too poofy. But I'm ready to party...
Four days from now ;)
