Not a time for amateurs, sure the costume muggles may buy party store sexy nurse in a bag, but my patience with the lack of imagination gets thinner every year.
Honestly, if you want a sexy costume why not branch out? Sexy Supreme Court Justice, sexy Settlement House worker, sexy Huguenot?
You will ask, "Why sexy"? It's not the sexy I object to as much as the abysmal poverty of imagination. The sexy will go the way of all such youthful excess, let 'em have it.
To that end I present-
Miss Brilliantine's Gallery of Thrift Store Historic Personages!
Thrift store George Sand
|Merle Oberon, Judy Davis and of course George Sand, herself.|
Here's my version-
|Bad case of "Resting Authoress Face"|
|I just changed the buttons, because ugly plastic|
|Ruffly shirt says "Dandy"!|
|"Pardon me, can you direct me to the acetate ascot department?"|
There you have it. Will the unenlightened ask if you are Willy Wonka? Sure, but if you are like me you'll detain them with a lengthy history lesson, that'll learn 'em. Now add attitude and have your fragile lover write you a couple of sonatas, hopefully by moonlight.
Next up thrift store Frida Kahlo.
