Here is a smorgasbord of photos from the night:
I have to talk about my costume because it is a fashion statement and I think my best costume yet!
I totally stole the idea from Bridget Marquardt from Playboy's The Girl's Next Door:
clown outfit for the German holiday of Fasching and it was fun and I loved the makeup and everything I did, but I really wanted to do the sexy Bridget version and I was so excited I was finally able to!
I found the little hat at a cheapie store in Germany for 1 euro and it was all the inspiration I needed. The tulle skirt was a thrifty find at the Sacramento Antique Faire for around $2. The shoes were from Goodwill for $5. The suspenders were about $5 as well. The socks were mine, and the necklace was from F21 a couple years ago. I pinned on a pipecleaner flower my daughter made for me, and I used my Michael Kors bag to carry around lipstick and my camera. I had to wear ruffly undies and put on a lot of leg tanner! The shoes were the best part and I was so lucky I didn't fall or step on anyone!
My darling husband gave me no input on what he wanted to be, so I bought him the banana costume and he wore pajama pants so he was a banana in pajamas!
