Playing dress up

Or cosplay as the adults call it.

Last week was Halloween and on Saturday Crochet Widower and I went to a Halloween party at Hooker Ellen’s house, this lead to a charity night at a local pub where Crochet Widower won best male costume and you can see why

I love costumes, I always have, my mum says that I don’t have a wardrobe I have a dressing up box. This I feel is rather unfair as she started it, that’s me with the legs. my mum always made the best costumes, weather it was for a school play, Halloween, or because it was Wednesday (I think she made the other costume in this picture too).

Even in every day life I was encouraged to dress as I wanted, usually with less than flattering consequences.

The best costume I have ever worn was Poison Ivy, I made the corset myself and have reused it many times over the years (It was covered in leather when I was a cenobite, blue for Malice in wonderland, and lime green for the Joker). The corset itself was a breeze and very straight forward, painting glitter on the plastic ivy leaves and sewing each individual one on to the corset, not so much.

In recent years The Hookers and I have aimed for a theme of sorts to narrow down the costume choices, this year was broken dolls (we have had twisted fairy tales, Malice in underland and the like, and comic book villeins, I was The Joker). This year was my first all crochet costume and I wasn’t as happy as I could have been, but that might just be my unhealthy need for perfection.

This year I am struggling, usually by the end of the night I have almost settled on next years costume but as my middle aged body has yet to settle in but I no longer have a teenage body I’m at a loss (feel free to offer suggestions). I did see an amazing Ursula and I could pull that off but I like to put a twist on these things, so for the next eleven months I will be googeling away looking for ideas. One ideas is Zombie Hookers, with various hook related deaths.
