Everything I Like Causes Cancer

Where we've been convinced to write a new post on Dec. 2. Stay tuned!


Here it is, kids:  my Curtain Skirt costume in it's finished state.  I still can't believe I made it, and out of a sheet no less.  I think I may take a sewing class and see if I can't make something else, like pajamas.

Curtain Skirt was a blast, as always, and we collected A LOT of canned goods.  All of the pictures are over there on the right in the sidebar but you can get to a slide show much easier if you click HERE.

I did not win any prizes for my costume.  Another friend commented last week that I was setting myself up for having to be this creative every time but what she didn't know is how high the bar is set.  I actually think I didn't win because by the time we paraded and awarded prizes I was too drunk to dance the Charleston and really, what good is a flapper who can't dance the Charleston?

Oh Gwen - is there anything you can't do? You look awesome, and OMG! Obama was at your house!

Cool skirt. And collecting cans sounds great. I threw cans of corn at cars from an overpass. Does that count?

Stacie said...

Bella@That damn expat said...

That is AWESOME! I'm in awe. Seriously. Wow.

I know, I know. I get over-excited about creative people. When I look at a sheet all I see is a sheet.

Amanda said...

Yay for you! You'd make Scarlett proud!

Renaissance Woman said...

Your talent is endless!!! It looks great. I'm bowing at your talents.

Sassy Britches said...

Well done you! I can't get over how professional your outfit looks! And the beauty of the still shot is that we can't see if your Charleston is off or not!

Fancy Schmancy said...

That is awesome! You looked great!

I say, doll-face, any gent there who didn't want you for a moll is playing three card monte with two cards, see? Meeeaaaaaaaw.

Dress gets a 10...but watch out for that creepy looking guy behind you. I think I have seen him before on Project Runway!

That skirt looks great! And really, nobody is sure exactly what the Charleston is. If you fake it with authority, you will totally skate by.

I watched the whole set as a slideshow- you guys are awesome.

I was, however, worried that your outfits may not be flame-retardant as there seems to be some retarded people SMOKING in the pictures (I'm shiking my finger at you and going "Bad Gwen!" as I type this).

I still think you should have won. But at least you enjoyed yourself and did some good, so I guess that counts for something! :-)

Maybe you should try making a toga for Friday Morning Latin Lessons.

Very nice. Even Obama is checking you out in the picture.

Little Brr said...

You look fahb-u-lous dahling, just fahbulous! You may not know how to do the Charleston, but it looks like you got "STOP! Hamma Time" down to a science.

Sass said...

You are too, too, too gorgeous! If I send you some dishtowels can you fashion a bikini for me?

;)

MISS YOU!!!!

Candy's daily Dandy said...

Wow you are amazing!! I like your use of red, white, and blue!! Very creative. Looks like a blast.
I can't believe you MADE that dress!! It is outstanding and dare I say it-you may be able to wear it again.

enc said...

I wish I'd seen that!

H said...

I'm just so glad I didn't spill red wine all over it! You look awesome. And I can't believe my teaching you the Charleston drunk didn't inspire you when you were drunk. Whatevs.

XOXO,
H
