Happy New Year! I hope it has gone well for you so far. Ooooh. You don't think starting the year off dressed as Gomez and Morticia means this year will be "all together ooky", do you? If so, next year I'll be Mother Teresa or something.
We had so much fun at the 2nd Annual New Year Masqerade. We took a few minutes to guess who everyone was and then played Guesstures, Invisible Football (more on my game than last time, but that wig had squeezed me into a pretty bad headache--let's see if next time I play better. After that game, I will quit making excuses, I promise ; ) ), and 80's Trivial Pursuit. Some questions make you feel old! but some of them made me feel quite young (very nice feeling as one is approaching 31 *shudder*).
Oh, and about the costumes (this will be 3 crafty posts in only a week--woohoo!), yes, I did make them. Well, refashioned them, to be exact. My dress was this awesome wear-on-your-night-out-on-a-cruiseship-in-the-seventies dress. And David's suit (I am guessing) was a little old man's only black suit that he everowned (there were little-old-man toothbrushes in the pocket--I didn't find them till after it was washed, thank goodness) with different color thread here and there to repair certain seams that had started coming apart. But after a little time with my good friend the seam ripper and my aquaintance the sewing machine, a Morticia dress was created (and necessary seams were back together in David's suit). After just a bit more time spent with a white paint pen, David had a Gomez pin stripe suit. I love refasioning thrift store clothing into costumes. If there were a job that fit that description, I would definitely apply : )
