a very well-costumed october

a played a lot of dress up last month.

october kicked off with richard’s “fantasy birthday party” (think “nerdy” not “dirty”), which pretty much turned into a game of thrones party.

i went as king robert. being pillow-fat was weird. that sword was awesome.

the next evening i severely injured myself. i’d say “long story,” but it’s actually a short story: i jumped over a hedge and fractured my foot.

this meant the remaining october dress up featured a cast and crutches, which came in handy for my next get-up: kerri strug from the 1996 olympics.

yes, i wore spandex shorts to the bar.

i then went not once, but twice, as the tooth fairy:

my tooth fairy utility belt (t-fub for short) consisted of coins, “teeth,” and fairy dust.

and rounded things out a little more traditionally as holly golightly for my final dress up of the month:

only two of these outfits were for halloween activities. i’m glad i have friends who like any excuse for a costume party.
