Lucy and I share an obsessive love of nailpolish and lipstick, clearly.
Have you guys voted yet for what Halloween costume I'll wear this year? Here are the stats so far:
I Love Lucy - 12
Liza Minnelli in Cabaret - 8
Marlene Dietrich - 5
Mod Girl - 4
Pippi Longstocking - 3
Each costume has its own unique challenges. I Love Lucy will require herculean effort to attain the signature poodle 'do (and I may need to purchase hair-combs) but I'm kind of psyched to attempt this.
Liza Minnelli in Cabaret will involve lots of makeup fun, although I'm not sure what the outfit would be (swimsuit and fishnets with a kimono housecoat on top?). Luckily, I already have a short black hair wig.
|I do have a swimsuit that looks like this at the neckline.|
And green eyeshadow. But not a dog collar or a bowler hat. Hmm...
Marlene Dietrich in the 30s - I've already done a fun 30s look, so I have practice at doing 1930s hair and makeup. The outfit is a cinch - baggy menswear. If only I had a top hat, hmm...
Mod 1960s Alien Girl - I have a perfect dress for this, and what's fun about this is that because it's not based on one specific person, I can invent the entire hair and makeup look. It would involve a massive beehive/flip hair combo. And with the alien thing, lots of glitteriness. Loooots of glitteriness.
Mod 60s alien girl will also include a lot of eyelashes.
A loooot of eyelashes.
Pippi Longstocking- I have the tights, the red hair, the freckles. And this adorable girl shows us all how easy it is to do the sticking-out braids:
Voting ends on Oct 26!
