Costume party fun

As you might guess, we had a costume party to attend this weekend. Every year there's a theme, and this year it was Witches, which was, really, perfect. Easy for those who just want to wear a pointy hat, but broad enough to inspire creativity.

I had so much fun putting our costumes together. I can't even tell you. This is the first time, in 30 Halloweens, that I have dressed up as something scary-- true story-- and I really did not expect to enjoy it as thoroughly as I did. I did some joy riding around Ithaca last weekend, hitting thrift stores and weird little shops in general, absolutely scoring: a slinky black dress for $6, witchy little boots for $5, fabulous Gothic earrings (which you can't see, unfortunately) for $8, and black lace gloves-- the only thing I bought new, and the most expensive, at $14. (And they had a giant gaping hole in one of the seams. No one makes quality items anymore, do they?)

But the best part was putting on our faces. I don't spend a lot of time on makeup, generally, and I don't know much about it, either, so it was nice to go BIG here, and know that any slipups would be forgiven in the kitschy spirit of Halloween fun.

Of course, the party was pretty swell, too.
