This year's Halloween Costume

Well, at this rate, it might become next year's Halloween costume. I've worked on it for hours today, and I just don't seem to be making a lot of progress.

When I first thought of doing this, I thought I'd have trouble with the eyes and the feet, but the rest of it seemed simple enough. But the eyes are done, and the feet seem to be working out, and while I still think I'm going about this the right way, I just didn't picture it taking so long.

Today I watched two hours of TV (episodes of Lost and The Nine that I taped last night), ate breakfast, left for about an hour to run a couple of errands, and ate lunch. Now I should wash some dishes and think about dinner. The rest of the time I was working on the costume.

And I haven't really given much thought to the other costume. I can't drive in this costume, and I can't eat in this costume, and I really can't do much of anything except sweat in this costume, so I'll have to arrive at the party in a different costume. I plan to change into this costume about half an hour before the costume contest. Last year, I was working on this full length purple velvet dress, but then I decided it was too tight, and I ended up with a black dress with wings to match. But with the recent weight loss, the purple dress looks really good now. I just haven't decided if I should make something to go in my hair or if I should wear fairy wings or spiderweb nylons or what. And I haven't picked my shoes. I'll have to give serious thought to the shoes.

Sometimes, because of the weight-loss, I think I'll just skip both of those costumes and get a Leg Avenue or some other tacky thing from the Sluts-R-Us store.

But probably not. Besides, I don't want to spend fifty dollars plus accessories on something that I can't even enter in the contest.

Well, back to work.
