Happy mid-October blog! These are not my lips…but they COULD be.
Gee, I thought I was all done with my Creepy Things Found at a Child’s Playground series…and then I saw this!?!
In continuing with my post-a-wig-every-day-until-I-run-out idear, here is Corinne’s magenta wig that I “acquired” many years ago.
She wore it first! Here’s my Broad at Burning Man, circa 2004, wearing my corset (still have it), and skirt (nope).
Fall is dazzling me with all the changing colors, I love this time of year.
Dressed up for Halloween with my two neighborhood pals, Samantha and Alexis. Their father filled candy machines for a living so they always had candy and gum at their house, and they were younger than me so I could boss them around all the live-long day. Hooray!
The Hayley Mills wig. She was supposed to be an Edie Sedgwick but that just wasn’t in the cards for her.
Notable for a series of self-portraits I took back when Josh and I were on a 4-day hiatus because of my drinking and I immersed myself into a bottle of whiskey and put on a lot of eyeshadow and took some of the best self-portraits of my life. The series even inspired a painting…
…that my aunt requested, and I gave to her. Good ol’ Hayley Mills wig!
One week ago today: daddy and baby dance party in the kitchen. He has the baby currently–I won the chore chart so I get my 3 hour break from the baby. I’m using it to type this blather and then I’m going to make my Halloween costume.
It just wouldn’t be October without watching a few scary movies, eh? This one is from 1973 and it’s called “The Legend of Hell House”. It was…okay. Not scary. Almost campy.
This is an image from the account of a designer in the UK called Ashish who smothers all of his clothes in sparkle and I LOVE IT ALL.
The Cleopatra wig! Back in 2011. I worked SO HARD on our Cleopatra and Marc Antony costumes and then we both got disgusting colds just in time for the party. BOOOOO.
Seems to me we were on a lot of cold medicine, here. Heh.
My neighbor’s zombie flamingo graveyard is too cute. Josh refuses to do the graveyard in our front yard this year, he tells me it’s “too macabre”. However, he WILL do the giant spider devouring the human skeleton. ?
It’s an older Lizzy drawing, frustratingly NOT dated but it must be after 2008 because I signed it EP Holcomb, my married name. Note to self: ALWAYS DATE EVERYTHING. It will help with the dementia later on.
The Old Lady wig! Josh said I looked like the Starbucks logo, which was entirely unintentional.
This was Halloween 2014, and it was SO much fun. I even had an awful cold which just made me look even more pathetic and elderly. I would have won the costume contest at work, but I didn’t want to stick around an extra 20 minutes because I felt so crappy…now I regret not staying.
Maggie’s got a real good thing going on with the baby. I’ll have my back turned for a second and he’ll be feeding her his baby crackers!
Starting to decorate the house. Party is in two weeks!
Really enjoying the scary portraits against the aqua wall.
And of course, the glitter skeleton.
Mixed in with the rain and gloom, we are still having nice days like this.
The blonde beehive! I have no memory of buying this wig or using it for any particular costume…although all of my photos from 2005-2007 are gone so anything is possible. It’s a little sad to me how limited my memory is unless I have photo proof. What would I do without obsessive documentation of my life?
Aw, sick Goo. 9 months old! 9 months of this sweet baby boy. I love him so much it catches in my throat sometimes. I sit and look at pictures of his face before I fall asleep because it makes me happy. I slept downstairs this week to spare Josh from my coughing and nose blowing and germs and for 10 straight minutes one night, we just texted each other pictures of our son back and forth. It’s LOVE.
Walgreens has a Day of the Dead section now! I resisted. It was hard.
Oh man, the Courtney Love wig did NOT want to cooperate. I did two different sessions with it, a week apart, so I can’t blame the cold…and I hated all of them! The wig kept sliding back and not even my GUM would cooperate. Heigh-ho. What am I gonna do, throw her out? We don’t throw out wigs in this family!
Ah, the Peg Bundy…one of my favorites! I liked how this whole look came together. And being so sick, it even raised my spirits!
These big ol’ cumulus clouds look like whipped cream…mmmm…whipped creeeeam. Oh yeah, speaking of food/my low-carb diet, officially this morning I am the same weight as my husband! FINALLY! I’ve lost a little over 50 pounds and only have 12 to go! YAYYYYYY I might even make it to my goal, which was back to my pre-pregnancy weight by December 3rd.
Christopher sent this to me and I laughed and laughed.
Finally it’s…the pink bob! One of my favorites, and worn many times with many different outfits.
Here’s Joshy with it on, HA HA. Ta ta!
