taking it way back...1789 stylez

Mama's looking forward to Halloween coming up this weekend. Like really looking forward.  But there's a part of me that thinks I'm way wayyyy too old to still be dressing up and going out (on the Saturday nite before.) Sunday is going to be spent with the kidlets, stuffing them into ridiculously cute costumes, dragging them door to door trick or treating, and of course taking 1 million pics of them to document the greatness that is Halloween!
On Saturday night we're going to West, a club/lounge downtown. I'm going as Miss Headless 1793, Marie Antoinette though my head will still be attached. I'll be needing it, thanks very much.
In honor of the late, great French beauty I'm going all out. My one major complaint though is why is it that every female adult costume is so sexy these days?!  Just like on Modern Family tonight (saw a preview) even the saintly Mother Teresa can be made into a "sexy" costume.  Really, what's next?? 
I'm doing my best to make my Marie costume sophisticated and somewhat historically accurate...even though its technically a "Playboy" brand costume, (ok so maybe thats a bit of an oxymoron.)
 I love the look of it, the fabric is gorgeous and I've even managed to lower the length of the hem to move a bit further away from it's offical "skank length"...it's nothing a good petti-coat can't help with.


She looks pretty ordinary to me...
{Marie Antoinette by Alexandre Kucharsky, apparently this is a highly realistic portrait. We can do better than this and make Marie way hotter, no?}


{ Here's a pic of my actual costume. Let's ignore the fugly black wig and imagine Mama in this with the biggest, highest white wig ever}

So seriously, am I too old for this shiz? Are any of you dressing up for work, house parties or even for the benefit of your kids??

You're NEVER to old to dress up for Halloween! I LOVE your costume, you're gonna rock it!

I'm going to a pumpkin carving party on Saturday and I'm going as Waldo from "Where's Waldo?" So not sexy but I don't care I think it'll be cute!

You're not too old! I totally love Halloween, and have been looking high and low for a party buddy for Saturday night (Not my husband, a girlfriend who can dance!) But my friends are lamo!
Have fun! And I bet you totally rock that Marie Antoinette.
