Letting out that inner Gurrl!

Well in this case it was, letting out that moderately famous, middle aged, Latin rumba star.
I have been wanting to do Carmen for quite awhile. But I could not quite figure out how to get all that fruit to stack so nicely. Last year I started working on a Carmen style fruit hat and put in on the back burner after last Halloween passed. I pulled out that project and built a costume to go with it. The result is quite a sight.
This is a really good picture of me with that hot man Doug, in his full leather LA motor-cop uniform. This picture was taken at the Witches Ball. The Witches Ball is on the road to becoming an annual Halloween party put on by the Wichita Pagan group. It was lots of fun and there was good food. There were prizes for best costume, ghoulish food and pumpkin carving.
I also played Carmen at both jobs, the Tag office and the Post office. Most customers had a good time with it. I have yet to see the results of the costume contest at the Post office. Everyone that I talk to at the Post office said that I would win. We'll see.

Thanks! - I think.... :)

Actually most people who saw me thought about the Chicita Banana logo. (Which was also Carmen...)

Thanks again!

I think that hat is better than Carmen's!

Oh, go on! But I do think it was taller than her's :)

LOL! Darling, you look marvelous!

I'm so kicking myself for not going to the Ball... next year, I promise I won't miss it!

I actually did not get to the Ball until about midnight. It was a lot of fun.

I guess I need to start thinking about next years costume.

I miss you! Hopfully, I will see you soon.

Very cool.

Though when I read "It was lots of fun and there was good food." I mumbled "Yeah, you brought it on your head!" *snicker*

Somehow a shot of a CHP and Carmen is NOT what I would normally call hot. But in this case... very nice!

Luckly the fuit on my head was not edable, if it were I would not have it there for long.

Doug is very hot, isn't he.

apparently our witch's ball is really lame here. you think in a city of 2+ million we could come up with something decent. instead we had Samhain dinner at greekcub's place and then onto the gay village to take in the sights.
