getting ready for halloween [photos]

i'm throwing a fancy dress partay! i'm so excited. i'm actually throwing the party because i wanted an excuse to wear the costume i thought up the other day. i'm going to be amphitrite! i love greek mythology.

i'm going to wear a chiton with lots of strips of different colors of green and blue and i'm going to use shells as shoulder-broaches. i'll use some blue make-up to paint swirls and things on my face, and lots of shimmery glitter on my arms and legs. i experimented with my hair the other day, and this is the result:

those are strings of freshwater pearls that i bought from my pals over at anapurna

a little closer in. i'll have to take a less-blurry shot of my earrings. i got them at the ren fest last weekend and i ADORE them.

this was me trying to take a photo of the back. i didn't have a great angle, but i liked the photo anyway. it's got a sort of movement to it.

i'm going to dress lester up as a fish. HA. GET IT. i am really excited about this costume, you have NO IDEA.


  1. Hawt! I'm so excited. And yay, the pearls look awesome!

  2. You are going to be stunning. Wow.

    (I'm pondering dressing up as Not a Nice Girl, although I'm totally stumped as to how Raymond could be Not a Nice Boy. Given that he is one and all.)
