What’s so frightening about this picture? I’ll give you a hint … the pink ones, they aren’t mine.
The manly looking foot – that one would be mine.
Yes, we cross-dressed for a Halloween party, and no, he did not raid my closet. Even I wouldn’t have worn this get-up anywhere! My hubby is a wonderful sport, though.
We had so much fun!! We went to the local thrift store for inspiration. First came the purple top, then the bra. We got the industrial strength variety – lots of support. You never know how much support you are going to need to hold up all those athletic socks. We started by agreeing that he could just wear this over jeans, but that seemed a little drab. Then we found some black capris, a little less dull. No way in hell am I wearing a dress, he says, but maybe black capris wouldn’t be so bad. So, we carried the capris around the store for a while. Luckily, we found the lovely skirt you see here just in the nick of time! At first he thought I was crazy, but then even he started to see the possibilities …
I said, hey, let’s do jewelry, you know, earrings and a necklace, and this lovely humongoid flower … and he said no way! I said, yes, way! I mean, why bother if you don’t accessorize? We had to get the purse, too. Gotta have something to hold the cooler!
Then I said, hey, let’s do make-up … and he said no way in hell! I said yes way in hell! … and he says, but no mascara, and I mean it!!!! … and I said, yes, mascara, and I mean it … and now for the toes … and he says, oh, HELL no! Well, you know what I said.
When all was said and done, we came out of hiding to go to the party. Daniel, our youngest child, could only laugh hysterically, and after the initial shock, the dogs even snickered.
Now, I repeat, isn’t he an awesome sport? … and a damn good lookin’ woman!
So, who’s the ugly dude? Oh, and Happy Halloween!!!
