Halloweentown

10.23.2012


*originally I had opted to show you Halloweentown in its full and glorious VHS quality, but it was painful to my HD-spoiled eyes, so we're celebrating white eye shadow of the last century with this, though I'm not sure it's any less painful 

was 4'7" and I was Michael Jackson. I had perfected the leg-lift in conjunction with the quick hand to the north complimented by the obligatory "ee-hee!" and put powdery white eye shadow (a thing at that time) all over my face. Single glove on hand, feet in white socks, black slip-ons - honestly I don't remember the actual costume - and adjunct to my comrade The Headless Horseman, it was Halloween and you know the rest. I tried to do the skanky thang a few years now but as it doesn't work in my fashion life, it certainly doesn't work in my costume life. Fasten upon me a cat tail, mask and a bow tie from the $1 store (fully clothed) plop in original Disney movie Halloweentown, and it is almost Halloween (you know the rest): I take this opportunity to wear orange and black and not feel all Halloween-ish...because it is All Hallow's Eve...get me?

I had to share this because I don't understand the face that I am making. Also I was not cold. It was 80 degrees. 
Here, my dad wanted to be artsy so he told me to look to the side.

Side note: although it was 80 degrees, long live this coat. I am serious. It is well-fitting, not too warm for Arizona weather, and I'm fully embracing orange till I decide it's ugly again (won't be for awhile). I plan on popping on this peacoat to add a spice of orange slice to all my wintry outfits. Last year's red=this year's tangerine, and not because Pantone told everyone so.

I like this coat too. It looks super dressy in your first photo but pretty casual in your last. Anything that's versatile like that gets an A+ in my book!

Orange looks really good on you.
