It is so totally Halloween already!

I challenge you to say otherwise. Okay, so you probably will. But I have evidence to the contrary! Observe:


I wore a costume to work today. It was so blingy. And I had a blast. I even got 20% off at lunch, although the waitress didn’t realize I was in a costume (how cool is that?). I thought it was rather obvious, but whatever. Anyway, it was like this:

Yesssssssss. I wrapped that sari this morning, all by myself, in roughly the same amount of time it takes to put on a pair of jeans and a nice shirt. The sari is not as blingy as the peach-colored one I got in the mail, but it’s pretty dang blingy. I also have blingy earrings to go with it (you can kinda see them in the photo). I thought I was appropriately retro Bollywood.

JJ wanted in on the photo, too:

He didn’t really care how accurate the costume was, as long as I scratched behind his ears. Which I did.

And then I got silly and did the obligatory fashion pose:

I won’t quit my day job, don’t worry. I know that a future of sari modeling is probably not terribly reasonable. It was fun, though.

And then, all of us got together for a group shot. We had a soldier, one synchronized swimmer (my favorite costume ever) and a character from Super Smash Brothers (and I’m lame and don’t remember his name; I will correct this later):

Incidentally, I totally forgot that my sunglasses were on my head by the time we got to these photos. Oh, well.

Then the photographer got in on things, dressed as a creepy clown:

(Notice how the soldier’s boots are very large; she borrowed them from her husband)

And then somebody had the idea that we should all jump. We got ready:

And then WHEEEEEE:

Happy Halloween, everybody.


About HappyGoth

By day, I'm a graphic designer. By night, I'm a knitter. I'm doing my part to keep Hotlanta stylish. I imagine that if you don't already understand the title of the blog, you're probably confused and perhaps slightly annoyed, but never fear - I do have a reason (and it's a good one). Having gone to hear Stephanie Pearl McPhee, and then having been inspired to blog about knitting, I found myself wondering what to call the blog. I recalled a conversation I had with Mouse and the Chicken Goddess about why it is a Bad Idea to anger knitters - this conversation was following SPM, aka the Yarn Harlot telling the assembled throng about Those Who Do Not Understand Knitting and Therefore Belittle It Much to the Chagrin of Others, or TWDNUKTBMCO, which is not the acronym she used but is the one I'm using because I forgot hers - that is, we are numerous and we all have very pointy sticks, easily transforming into an angry mob. Therefore, knitters = angry mob.
