Last weekend, I went to a costume party. It was so much fun. I hardly ever dance and when I say I danced the night away, I was dancing when I was walking, when I was talking, when I was shaking hands and meeting new people. I just totally let loose and it was so much fun.
Weeks before the party I decided that for my costume, I would use an old school girl costume I still have from college. The plan was to make it a zombie costume by ripping it up, pouring fake blood all over it, and wearing a wife beater I already have that is covered in fake blood. (This was from one day when I just decided to dress up like Helena from Orphan Black for absolutely no reason.)
The day of the party I decided I didn't want to wear it. The skirt is short, the weather is cold, and nobody wants to be THAT girl. (You know the slutty looking one at a party where everyone else is covered.)
At the last minute, I decided to go for funny instead. And what is more funny than Monty Python? Yeah, not much. Especially when I comically recreate it.
I made this in about 3 minutes. I used my mom’s nightgown, my sweater, a funnel, and a plastic chili pepper from my kids’ kitchen. I looked for a carrot, but for some reason it was MIA. Yes the costume is ridiculously silly, but I sent it to my brother and he got the reference right away. People who got the reference really GOT it. And I was amused by it. That's what really matters.
Have I put you in the mood to watch? Well here's the scene:
