But luckily my friend Elena (who in the end chose Poison Ivy over The Little Mermaid - a wise redhead choice nonetheless) was there with her camera as back up (which the douchebag also dropped, although it didn't break) and so she managed to get some funny pictures of me as Wilma Flintstone.
So there you have it. Me dancing around in all my cartoon glory in downtown NYC.
I'm a little disappointed because the hairspray was supposed to be "tiger orange" and it was more neon pink than anything else. But I suppose it still got the point across. And making the dress was a lot of fun. So all in all I consider it a success. If I get permission from the other ladies, I'll show you Poison Ivy and Jessica Rabbit... all of the other cartoon redheads fell through :(
Coming up soon, photos from a wonderful weekend with Kate - including a rowboard ride in Central Park and the biggest pizza slice in NYC. But most importantly, photos of our second group Halloween costume, which I sewed for all three of us with $4 worth of curtains from the Salvation Army! Stay tuned for the surprise!
