Last night I went to an Alice in Wonderland themed event and dressing the part was required, at least in my mind. My outfit was a bit impromptu but I did the best I could with what I already owned. A corset and ruffly shorts are a quick, easy costume. The rest is details. Now I’m off to finish my Halloween costume and have coffee with a friend later. I can’t wait to have these costumes finished!
So as some of my friends know I typically try to make my costumes. I’d never be caught dead in a bagged costume. While wearing something unique is rewarding it is also a lot of work, especially when there are multiple dress up days at work.
