There was an added challenge to the this one, as one party was a costume party (come dressed as a character from a Quentin Tarantino movie) and one wasn't. So I had to manage two outfits. And clearly the costume party had to come second -- so at least that decision was pretty simple.
I once tried to be Mia Wallace from Pulp Fiction for Halloween, because the basic costume (white dress shirt and black leggings) is so freakin' easy.
However, I left wig-buying till the last minute and all the black wigs were sold out at the costume store -- I could only find a long red wig. So I didn't look much like Mia Wallace at all. I was like some weird Little Mermaid/Mia Wallace hybrid.
This time, I decided to redeem myself and actually buy a black wig. Plus, I figured the Mia Wallace costume was easy to change into; I'd wear leggings under a skirt for the first party, and bring the wig and white dress shirt in the car. Then I could pop on the wig and change easily in the car, simply shedding the skirt and sliding on the dress shirt. It was kind of a fun idea -- changing identities mid-evening! Like a spy or something!
Because I'm a big ol' narcissist, I decided to document both costumes before I left for the evening:
Look at me! I look normal and hopefully respectable!
Boom! Secret identity!
After attending the first lovely soiree, I went out to my car, eager to do my secret identity change-up. I changed into the white dress shirt and revealed the leggings. Then I looked around and the car and sent up a wail of "Wiiiiiiggggg! Nooooooooo!"
I forgot the wig at home.
So I had to attend another dress-up event sadly Mia Wallace-wig-less. And there was another Mia Wallace there who not only had the wig, but had a syringe sticking out of her chest. FOILED AGAIN.
