Over the weekend, we decided to host an impromptu Halloween party (or a “celebration of darkness” as my mother so eloquently put it) at our place and I decided to make a sleeping mask similar to the one worn by Audrey Hepburn on Breakfast At Tiffany’s (#basic, but a step up from cat ears). I went to the local Jo-Ann Fabric and bought two yards of gold ribbon, some blue jewels, felt and a yard of blue cloth. This was the result:
Unfortunately, halfway through the night, my mask began falling apart because my crafting skills are subpar, so I decided to go as Tom Cruise on “Risky Business.” Which I guess what a blessing, because no one knew who I was supposed to be with my original costume. That doesn’t surprise me, as a few years ago I decided to go as Margot Tenenbaum and everyone kept asking me who I was.
“Who are you?” “Margot Tenenbaum.” “Who?” “A hipster from a hipster movie.” “Oh…”
Maybe next year I’ll be a Minion.
The party was a lot of fun, we had a ton of kids stop by while trick-or-treating, and we danced on the couch and sang karaoke with our friends until dawn. I’m sure our neighbors LOVED us!
Happy (Belated) Halloween!
