Halloween dancing

Lookie - actual costuming content - don't faint! On Saturday night I went to the Ballroom Dance Studio's Halloween party with Mom and Dad. I'd been debating whether or not to go and what to wear for a few weeks. My costumes are lovely but trains and corsets abound in my closet. Not exactly made for doing the rumba in, if you know what I mean.


However inspiration struck Saturday morning. What I really wanted to wear was my b&w bustle but it isn't finished yet so I wore my bustle underwear. I blame the bad influance of CC underwear breakfasts. :P


It was great fun to wear though! The bustle was light and comfy and the outfit was surprisingly easy to dance in. Yay! No one thought it was underwear of course, it was assumed to be a dress. Oh well. I was even an honorable mention in the "sexist costume" category. Umm... must be the corset. :P


Mom and Dad were musketeers. Mom has been working on the costumes for months, she even roped me into some of the sequin gluing. It's been fun to see her in her sewing room for a change and I think the costumes came out adorable.

Aw, your mom and dad look so cute! And you do look particularly charming, which must = sexy to the judges.

Thanks so much! I still don't get it but Mom said I looked very elegant and I was really working that bustle... I need more bustle gowns I've decided. They are so fun to wear!

Thanks! Yeah, she worked really hard on them. Dad was such a good sport too. The only thing he refused to do was wear a wig! :>

Umm... so yeah... anyway! *wink*

Sweet, thanks for the update! I think it's at Picker's downtown but Dad gets e-mail updates from Bran so I'll double check with him. I have to rearrange some plans with friends, not sure about that yet, so I might be a little late. Hopefully not though...
