Good Friday morning, and Happy almost Halloween!! I love Halloween, it has always been one of my favorite holidays. What's not to love? Getting dressed up and wearing makeup are two of my favorite things.
I had a very unconventional yet awesome college experience, attending The Boston Conservatory where I intensively studied ballet. A very small school of about 500 students, we shared a lot of the facilities with Berklee College of Music. There were no keg parties or sleeping in until noon with our excruciating schedules. Surrounded by creative artists, musicians, actors and dancers, after hours of classes and rehearsals we would find ourselves in small clubs and venues to see our talented friends perform. My closest guy friends started a punk/ska band their freshman year and are still going strong touring the world. In the past 17 years we have all moved in different directions, some to other cities, and across the country, but we always seem to keep in touch and see each other when our lives take us to each others part of the world. Which brings me back to this Halloween weekend (full circle). So the band Bid D and the Kids Table has played a Halloween show every year since the beginning. This show serves very much as a homecoming for us. Original members have come and gone, some touring with other bands, some building lives with their families, but this show every year has proven to be our biggest reunion. I'll admit I have missed a few years here and there, because life gets in the way, but when I heard my friend Chris was going to be in from Hawaii, I had little to no excuse. So this evening, I will be stepping out with some of my closest most talented, awesome friends, oh, and did I mention it is a Halloween show? ;) Always one for choosing something pretty, never slutty (but good for the women who feel comfortable doing so), and with very little time to get a costume together I reached into my closet for something easy. Rosie the Riveter it is!
All you need is either a chambray jumpsuit, and or chambray shirt and jeans, a red handkerchief, boots and a red lip.
I hope you all have a fun, safe Halloween weekend!
