Gonna dress you up in my love.

Thursday, April 9, 2009

My roommate and I are big on dressing up. Halloween is just about our favorite day of the year. That said, I haven't dressed up without a reason since I was a little girl when I used to put my pretend wedding dress on (don't even get me started on how messed up it is that little girls are given costume wedding dresses, but that's another post for another day) and staged pretend weddings to Huey Lewis. The other night, however, we decided to make a random Tuesday night a lot more fun with costumes. Turns out, dress-up is just as fun without a reason as with and even better with alcoholic beverages. I haven't laughed this hard in weeks. Here's a snippet of the bazillion pictures we took.

Round One

This first round of outfits was really about trading the costumes we wore this last Halloween and Katie's big, fabulous hair.

Round Two

This round lacked focus, but we had two great old fashioned slips. Katie, again, had crazy how-does-she-do-it? hair and I tried to channel my inner Madonna.

Round Three

By round three, the alcohol was flowing and we were really getting creative with our prom theme.

Round Four

Oh, round four. How I love thee. This is what I like to call our faux pill popping faux socialites in faux fur look. We were cracking up at this point and I think it's safe to say that we may take these characters out on the road.

The moral of the evening? Drinks + costumes + camera = fun. Add a really, really great friend into the equation and you've got an unforgettable evening. We hope to make this a monthly tradition.

*Note to my mother: Click on the pictures and they get bigger. This goes for all the photos in my blog. :) I love you! *

    Max Powers, I used to watch the "Happy to be Stuck with You" video when I was little and I would point at the screen and tell my baby doll, "That's your daddy." Ahh, I love(d) Mr. Huey Lewis...
