I had decided Friday morning that I was not dressing up, or going to the annual party at my regular karaoke establishment because I had not had the money for a real costume and I wasn't happy with what I had to work with. Finally, at about 5:15 Friday afternoon, I decided to "just do it". I had already purchased the "dress" for $3.00 from the local Goodwill Store and someone had loaned me some Frankenstein boots. All that was still needed was a little make up and some white spray for my hair. Within an hour and a half - Voila! The Bride of Frankenstein 2008 was born. My husband was busy wandering around Transylvania, scaring the yell out of the locals, so I went to the party and had a spooktacular time by myself. I didn't win a prize but I was comfortable and able to sit down and really enjoy myself. As usual, there was a glitch or two - my neck and wrist stitches kept rubbing off and just looked like black smudges. I finally gave up after re-applying 3 times. No one seemed to notice.
Don't we make a goulish couple? Brandon dressed as Heath Ledger's Joker from The Dark Knight. He looked so great! He didn't go to my party but he had his own "thing" going on. Below he's pictured with Braxton, who is dressed as one of Joker's goons.
My dear friend, Papa Smurf, pictured below with The Leopard Woman, went home with the 2nd prize of $50.00 - way to go Smurfy!
I think a great time was had by all.
Have a great week!
