A wig a day keeps the blues away

A wig a day keeps the blues away

I can get behind this look 🌟🌟🌟(thanks @beautycon)
Happy mid-October blog! These are not my lips…but they COULD be.

What's this? Another sinister finding at the playground?!
Gee, I thought I was all done with my Creepy Things Found at a Child’s Playground series…and then I saw this!?!

Day 6: I "acquired" this neon magenta bob from the Broad, but seem to have lost my beloved blue bob. You know what color I don't have? AQUA. I need an aqua wig.
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.

Halloween #fbf: Little Lizzy as a princess in a Gunne Sax dress with my two neighborhood BFFs Samantha and Alexis. Boy did I love to boss those two around! πŸ‘»
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!

Day 7: the Hayley Mills wig! It wasn't supposed to be. It was supposed to be a cool little pixie for when I felt my Edie Sedgwick coming on (which used to be a LOT)...but somehow it had more of a Hayley Mills vibe, so the nickname stuck. Oh well. "Let's g
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…

"Self-portrait with Grapes", 2008. My Aunt Lisa has wanted this painting for years, and I'm finally mailing it to her! #procrastination: a celebration.
…that my aunt requested, and I gave to her. Good ol’ Hayley Mills wig!

Saturday morning Daddy/baby dance party πŸ’™
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.

For me October involves watching a lot of horror films. Today's pick: "The Legend of Hell House", 1973.
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.

Oooh yeahhh ✨✨✨(thanks @ashish).
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.

Day 8: the Cleopatra wig! Worn for Halloween 2011. I was proud of the fact that I made both my Cleopatra and Josh's Marc Antony costumes.
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.

Marc Antony and Cleopatra
Seems to me we were on a lot of cold medicine, here. Heh.

Spotted in my neighbor's yard: zombie flamingoes! Cute! πŸ‘»
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. ?

Prismacolor/metallic ink. Not dated. 🌟✨✨
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.

Day 9: the old lady wig! We dressed up as old people/our "future selves" for Halloween 2014. It was one of my favorites! πŸ‘΅πŸ‘΄
The Old Lady wig! Josh said I looked like the Starbucks logo, which was entirely unintentional.

Test run today of our Halloween costumes and make-up. We watched a bunch of YouTube tutorials on how to make your face look old...then we couldn't stop laughing! I ❀️ Halloween!
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.

Granted, Maggie's had to wait almost 12 years, but now food opportunities are literally falling into her dog mouth! πŸ˜‚
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!

It's beginning to look a lot like Halloween at Casa Holcomb. πŸ‘»
Starting to decorate the house. Party is in two weeks!

Gotta say, I like the look of the scary portraits against the aqua wall.
Really enjoying the scary portraits against the aqua wall.

'Sup, glitter skeleton. πŸ’€βœ¨βœ¨βœ¨
And of course, the glitter skeleton.

Another beautiful Fall day πŸŒ²πŸƒπŸŒΎ
Mixed in with the rain and gloom, we are still having nice days like this.

Day 10: the blonde beehive! I don't remember buying this wig and I don't remember using it for any particular costume...but there it is! Huh. My 20s were craaazy. πŸ˜…
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?

9 months of Goo! 😍
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.

Out buying vitamin C at Walgreens yesterday and discovered that they have a Day of the Dead section. Cool. πŸ’€
Walgreens has a Day of the Dead section now! I resisted. It was hard.

Day 11: the Courtney Love wig! It was called the "white trash" wig on the wig website, but I used it to play Courtney with Josh's Kurt in 2009. It has not aged well. πŸ˜‚
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!

Day 12: the Peg Bundy wig! Worn for Halloween 2012. It's cute. πŸ’–βœ¨βœ¨βœ¨
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!

Yesterday's clouds were real plump and juicy. ☁️☁️☁️
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.

Yes! (thanks @madlymazzy) πŸ˜‚
Christopher sent this to me and I laughed and laughed.

Day 13: the pink bob! Always a good time. πŸŒΈπŸ’•βœ¨βœ¨βœ¨
Finally it’s…the pink bob! One of my favorites, and worn many times with many different outfits.

party on, garth
Here’s Joshy with it on, HA HA. Ta ta!
