I don't dress up for Halloween
Why? Pure laziness. And poverty. If I had tons of cash to blow on a really cool outfit I'd only wear once I'd probably be cool with my own wedding too but if you'd just ask my dh you'd know I didn't groove on that whole shebang either. Why don't guys listen when you say the words "Elope to Vegas"? Anyway the costume, I know there are those who do it every year, that's nuts! If I had my choice I like the stuff that's done as a group, like when people do all of the cast of the Wizard of Oz or that type thing. I was flitting on the internet (as per the usual, duh) and remembered this seller on ebay, Wearydrearies, I used to love and my friend (the one with the clean desk) found her stuff on a website. Of course she had some stuff up that had a Halloween theme. Dresses she made like a pumpkin, Alice in Wonderland, Bat, yeah I love her raggedy stuff. Have for years. She's an artist, not really a seamstress but I'm sure she makes her living off of what she sells on ebay. Why you ask? I've never seen her dresses sell for less than $125. And if you order directly from her it's $200. YEGAK! Now you know why I've never owned a single thrashed dress from her. Yeah, I know, the clothing she makes is a bit odd but it's a style and I was all about the goth scene back in the day ya know. It's a bit left of center but center was never really something I aimed at anyway so I figure eh, what the hell right? Can't you just see me dressed up as a pumpkin? No? Yeah I didn't think so either.
