I Have A New Halloween Costume!
I ditched the spangly bodysuit years ago because (a) I got tired of explaining that I was a gay sperm cell and (b) I once lent it to a friend and he scored a much bigger hit with it than I did. That did it -- garbage time.
I also dumped the hamburger suit because it started looking like it had mad cow disease.
And much as I adore the gift-box costume above -- it's light, portable, and festive -- it's basically starting to feel a tiny bit returnable, especially in this economy.
So this year I'm going to dress like one of the stars from the classic film ...
Blades of Glory!
In fact, I will be wearing the blinding red-gold-and-flesh-colored twinkle-toes ensemble sported by Will Ferrell.
A big batch of thanks to my Halloweenie friend Susan -- who also gave me the gift-box costume!
She gives good costume.
