Pre-Halloween festivities were lively this year, with a charity masquerade party the week before and a JHMI costume party on Friday, it was all about Saturday. I planned a party, where I always stress out a bit more than normal and have to clean and decorate.
The party was a complete success with lots of lovely people in great costumes. With extra help with cooking and decorations (housemate's friend from the UK visiting) my task list went super fast and I was still able to throw together a costume outside the typical "Slutoween" getups that are mass-produced for women. Here's my take on "Zombie Barbie," with an itchy blonde wig, a way-too-pink dress from GoodWill (which I ripped up for effect) and my darker eyeshadows.
Quite scary, no? When the booze ran out we hiked to Fells Point to see the mess of hundreds of drunk people in costume. Halloween is apparently the holiday reserved for acting like an ass. But I guess that's St. Patrick's Day too?
Here's some more pictures of the house, as its kinda the name of the blog.
Coming soon, pics of my second coffee table, and maybe some non-Halloweened pics of the house. If I can manage to take pics, I can blog during my work trip to Jackson, MS, where I better get some Sweet Tea and Country-fried something.Woo for first work travel, but sad to miss my Baltimore life and my kitty for a week.
