Like I was saying before, I'm a woman of contrasts. For Halloween this year I did all the wholesome family fun stuff with my husband and the baby. However, once evening hit, I got to have my grown up Halloween too!
This is my friend Brittney:
I'm pretty sure I've posted here about Brittney before. Anyway, Brittney has a favorite dress:
So, I borrowed Brittney's dress, and one of her old wigs, and for Halloween I was...
Brittney! HA HA HA! Only less tall, of course. Here I am getting ready.
I don't think I'd look very good bald.
Here we are before we left the house. I did her makeup, as usual.
And here I am with my friend, the prom queen. We love our tiaras.
We met up with a couple of their friends at a pub in Phoenix.
Check out the guy behind them. He was dressed up as a character from a video game called Gears of War and his costume lit up and everything!
We hung out with the owner for a bit on the patio. He does a GREAT Cowardly Lion impression and asked us for our feedback on the costume contest. He was trying to pick the top three. It was hard because there were a lot of awesome costumes there! On our end of town, costumes are all store bought and pretty slutty, but here there were a lot of handmade and very creative ones. For example:
Sassy Prom Queen (okay had to toss that in there),
three decapitated surgeons (pretty sure they won the contest),
The Queen of Hearts (the Mad Hatter was around somewhere too),
and a big scary demon, among others.
Brittney and Amber
Doing my best Brittney pose leaving the pub.
Since Brittney and Amber both had drinks with dinner, I drove to our next destination. I not only had to move the seat waaaaay forward, we had to move it up as well so I could see over the steering wheel. Brittney is uh, kinda tall.
The next destination was the tranny bar. Oh, how I love that place! We saw a lot of stuff like this:
Yes, that's a man, and yes, I'm terribly jealous.
Hanging with Brittney. You can see how my hair wasn't entirely covered by the wig. Those things freaking HURT. It's like having a giant rubberband around your head all night. I was really glad when I was able to take it off finally!
We met up with Monica, who was dressed up as a nurse as well. She wanted to take some pictures.
She's pretty dang funny, and by the time we left there, she was also pretty dang drunk. She gave us a hands on lesson (literally, if you catch my drift) on how exactly one "tucks." Yes, there are photos. No, I am not posting them here! LOL!
We had a late meal at Denny's afterwards, where we got to see even more amazing and creative costumes, and then finally headed home at like 3:30 in the morning.
And that was Halloween!
