This Halloween has been nothing short of amazing.
I was a little nervous my dress wasn’t going to arrive since I ordered it from ebay and took a chance. It arrived two days before, the relief felt great. That is, until I tried it on. The bottom looked great, but I wasn’t feeling the bodice too much. I was originally going to be a queen, but since the top kept plunging, the last thing I wanted was a nip slip.
I was on the hunt for some inspiration and then it struck. . . a Bengali Bride.
Ugh, they are absolutely gorgeous, and I admire their customs and culture. I didn’t want my choice to feel like I was ridiculing their traditions. I tried to make this right and taught myself how to make a saree, painted my own henna and even made my own nose ring piece.
Getting ready for the party was a bit hectic, I left work at 4pm and had to rush home to cook and prepare everything. I arrived at the supermarket and when I went into my pocket to pay for the beers I noticed i still had my work keys. Fuck. An hour later I was back at work dropping off the keys. Great, more time wasted. I finally got home, put the ziti in the oven and started working on my “special” punch. It was a blend of burgundy, two types of brandy and triple sec. Nice and sweet, but it’ll sneak up on you!
I didn’t have many people, but I had the right people show up. Everyone was ready to party. The lights were dim, the music was blasting and drinks were served all around.
Chris killed it as Dipsy from the Teletubbies, Siobhan was Mia Wallace from Pulp Fiction, Katt was The Punisher, Kika was a cat, Kiki and Taimanee were S.W.A.T., Nedra was Rosie the Riveter, Frankie was a killer nurse, Nicole was Frida Kahlo and many more.
Check out the video from our night (coming soon) and thank you to all who attended.
