It’s like a battle for who’s geekiest.

A minute ago I finished the final piece of my halloween costume and I can’t wait until Halloween to show it to you, mainly because almost no one I know in real life will have the slightest idea who I’m supposed to be and I need you to tell me that you get it so that I can proudly make it through a night filled with: “Wait.  WHO are you supposed to be again?

Please tell me at least one of you gets it, because otherwise I will have wasted even more time than usual.

Now guess, you clever readers:

Hunter S. Thomcat wouldn't get out of the frame. He's not actually part of the costume.

 

It's sort of a costume in a costume.

Final hint:

Yes. That is Juanita Weasel. And - as always - her motherfucking soufflé is ruined.

In related news, Victor, Hailey and I are all inadvertently fighting to see who is going to wear the geekiest costume ever.  Hailey’s costume is based on her favorite app, and Victor is finally getting the costume he’s wanted since he was six.  More on those when they’re finished.

PS. This year let’s cancel Thanksgiving and Christmas and just having two more Halloweens instead.  Someone pass that law while the government isn’t looking.

    Also, my family does a second Halloween/thanksgiving mash up. We call it a themed thanksgiving. We dress up and play theme related games or do a murder mystery. This year is a superhero theme. We have to make up our own superhero, costumes, and alter ego. One of our games is we have to come dressed as our alter ego and we have a cardboard phone-booth and timer to see who can change the fastest!

Drawing at straws one of our new friends knows a famous film maker but he hasnt responded yet. Dont really know anything about blogging but here we are. Our charity is Love 4 the elderly. Everyone can see it on our facebook page or Ever ribbon. Just plug in love 4 the elderly and please go to the first one listed. Second one is inactive but we cant figure out how to delete it ( told you we are still a work in progress =) ) We need people to like us on face book and to send us friend requests so that we can spread the word and help as many people as we can. Patients in nursing homes are often left and forgotten. The government doesnt pay for all of their needs and the facilities they live in are only required to supply food and shelter. Many elders need clothes, shoes, electric wheel chairs, electric razors, podiatry care ( medicare only pays for certain disease processes and medicaid does not pay at all . Facilites are not required by law to pay for it either.) Same goes for Vision and Dental services. We are asking for donors and for REQUESTS for assistance from nursing homes across the United States so that we can help the elderly people who reside in their facilities. I worked in health care for years. Nursing home patients truly are the forgotten ones. Many of them have no family. Christmas is coming and we are striving to make a difference this year. Please everyone spread the word . And I really do like the the costume .

    Second thought: no, that’s not the Tardis, that’s something else. It’s a Dalek? or a Dalek-y thing?

Ok, I might leave the Fez off for this lest they steal it from me.

    OK, I know I’m fashionably late to the party as always, and you probably won’t even read this at this point, but I adore you, so screw it. I think we are tied for winner of the Awesome Doctor Who Costume It Takes People A Second To Get (If They Do At All) Award (though you and yours is way cuter, so you win). This year, I made a costume consisting of different pieces of ten Doctor’s outfits (1= String Tie, 2= baggy plaid pants, 3= ruffley shirt, 4= THAT SCARF, 5= red ? on my collar and celery on my lapel, 6= rainbow umbrella and cat pin, 7= fedora, red suspenders, and paisley hankie, 8= brocade Victorian waistcoat, 9= black leather trenchcoat and 10= Chuck Taylors), made no effort to disguise that I am a woman with big cans and long red hair, and went to a con as “Donna Noble At The EXACT Moment of Trans-Species Metacrisis”. People were like “Oh, I get it, you’re Doctor Who, right? But wait… which one? I see bits of several…?” “I’m DoctorSdonna, dude!” “OHHHH! Now that I get it, that’s awesome.”

    They REALLY won’t get it at the Big Gay Halloween Party I’m going to, so I’m going to that dressed as Divine in “Pink Flamingos”; my drag queen friends are gonna PLOTZ.😉
