The Wild Thing

October 25, 2009

Topshop Mongolian sheepskin gilet, Topshop sequin hotpants, Bebe shoes, Where the Wild Things film still via Urban Outfitters

Sometimes you just gotta let your inner wild thing out. Mine happens to be pink.

I figured I should get my quality time in with the wild things since I’ve surrendered being Max or Carol for Halloween. While en route to a wig shop in Hollywood for Bec’s costume, I spotted a costume store and stopped in. There were tons of risque costumes- some that even made me blush- but I caved and bought a “sexy” army outfit. Photos to come, but let me tell you, I’m relieved that’s out of the way. I’ve only ever bought one other mass produced costume from a store- an “Enchantress” costume. It was fuscia and came with a faux fur stole, as well as an open interpretation because I didn’t/still don’t even know what it meant.Β  However, I did know/thought that I was the hottest little 6th grader with my curled hair and pink lips. I was fortunate to have my mom sew all of my other costumes, and I felt so special wearing her creations. This reminds me that I need her to teach me how to sew so I can make love (equals clothes).

    This is a lovely and fun outfit! It looks very warm too and something that can be layered on later when the temps dip down. =)

    I just finalized my costume too last night. I was debating whether to buy or just put together something from my closet. Deep inside though, I really want to come as a dominatrix but there will be kids at the party so might be a little hard to explain to them what a dominatrix is, haha.

    Have a great Sunday!
