Halloween is fast approaching. I have been wanting to hand make my son's costume, but do not have the time, money or talent at the moment.
My mother used to make every costume I wore. My favorite was my I Dream of Jeanie costume. It was gorgeous. My favorite was the bra she wore, she took one of her coin belts from the 70's and sewed all the coins on the bottom of the bra...it was beautiful.
My favorite costume of all time was one my husband wore 6 years ago.
Hubby and I smoked a joint with a friend and went home giggling like school children. We rented the porno "Debbie does Dallas"...just for a laugh. It was the funniest thing we had ever watched. Then it came to me... I looked at hubby and said, "For Halloween, I could go as a giant penis, and you could go as a giant -hoo haa-" hubby started working on the costumes the next day. Needless to say, I was not going out in public dressed as a giant penis. But he did.
We went to a few contests in clubs, Hubby won $250 for his brilliant disguise. When he won, all you could hear were a bunch of drunk patrons chanting "dickhead dickhead....". Funniest thing ever.
Note: I am not a burnout. Just a funny story.
