I love to play dress up. always have. if there is an opportunity to put on a wig or put together a costume i am so there! there is just something about becoming someone else for a few hours that is liberating. to be able to live out fantasies or put on a persona different from your own that makes me happy and fulfilled. while being in singles ward i have had plenty of opportunities to fulfill my fantasies and i cherish each of those moments. here are some costumes of days past and my latest outfit for a decade dance we had on saturday. everyone had to come dressed up in fashionable gear from a certain decade. i was a 1960's mod girl all i needed was a go-go dance cage, my friend emily was a 1940's USO singer entertaining the troops of WWII along with the likes of bob hope, and nette was a 1990's disenchanted youth of america...."as if". i loved it.
here are me and my girls at a halloween dance in ellensburg. right afterward we robbed a bank....
here is my geisha costume that won me the costume contest at last year's halloween party. it was so easy to put together, but turned out amazing. i was very proud.
for my friend brad's mission going away party he wanted a theme party...perfect! everyone had to come dressed as a famous 80's icon. i made myself into a carebear.
for a ward activity we did a bingo night, so naturally i had to dress up as an older woman. i think the black slippers are my favorite part.
