let's play pretend and act like it comes naturally...

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.

Again, you looked so good in that outfit. Aaron even said to me out of nowhere yesterday, "Angie's costume was so cool. She looked so good." You have many fans.

My favorite costume of all time was when I was a mod 60's girl in bright yellow plaid with white go-go boots at Botan for our decades Halloween. And Mandi was a pioneer (bonnet and all), now that was a classic Halloween. Love your dress!
