I was working in my lab late one night

Still more photos left over from Last year. I have ALWAYS wanted to do a Mad Scientist costume. I had more fun with this photo shoot than any of the others. I mean, come on. Lookit these photos. I'm sure my downstairs neighbors didn't enjoy the back porch cackling at 10:30 at night, but I don't really enjoy their 4:30 am drunken fights. So we're even.

Shirt: Brownie girlscout shirt stolen from my sister's closet
Skirt: Forever 21 (forever ago)

Science Rules!

I would go out tonight but I haven't got a stitch to wear

 Well, it's been a year since I was supposed to get these up. I guess that late is better than never. I guess. I've been so busy this year that I didn't even really get to dress up! So I decided I really needed to post the rest from my challenge.  I wore this out on the Saturday prior to Halloween last year. It may have been my favorite of all the 15 I did. I loved how cute, comfy, and warm the outfit was, and I LOVED my makeup. I also really love how cheap this one came together. I had the entire outfit, so that was free. I bought the earrings ($2.99), the hair spray ($1.99), and the bolts for my necklace ($1.50). An entire costume for under $10! And I looked WAAAY better than the "ladies" in their $70 slutty outfits. If I do say so myself.

 Sweater: Delias (very old)
Striped shirt: Forever 21

I love liquid Latex.
What is your costume this year?

Polka Dot-Dash

 Moment of honesty: This is from September. I'm really far behind. To be fair my life is so booked solid this moth that I have a hand written calender I have to check every morning. I'm aware that most people do this on a regular basis. As you may have concluded from this blog, I'm not most people. I lead my life disorganized and scatterbrained. I have been desperately trying to add a schedule to my life to make it easier to get things done, but so far all that works in my lists. I don't think I will ever be without a paper note pad to jot down my thoughts and lists. It's the only think that keeps me grounded-ish.

Cardigan: Thrifted kids (Old Navy i think)
Dress: Target Kids
Necklace: Corvidae
Tights: Target (i think)
Shoes: Seychelles
