Updated on November 1, 2011 to add my own odd little girl:
It's not much, but I did touch base with my sewing machine this week.
With Halloween fast approaching, I buckled down and sewed the costume requested by my daughter. She is planning to dress up as Wednesday Addams. Per wikkipedia, The Addamses are a satirical inversion of the ideal American family; an eccentric, wealthy clan who delight in the macabre and are unaware that people find them bizarre or frightening.
|Lisa Loring played Wednesday in the television series, and Christina Ricci played her in the movie.|
I sewed on five shirt buttons that have a silver edge around the mother of pearl. I imagine this will be a somewhat tarted-up version of a prim strange little girl.
|Mini dress with a low neckline. Not all that prim, after all.|
At work, we are having a Halloween party on Friday and costumes are encouraged, but I will just wear orange and black. Tonight I am making a sandwich platter for the party. Go me!
How about you? Are you dressing up for any parties or answering the door for trick-or-treaters on October 31st?
Or will you turn off the lights and pretend you aren't home, a la Martha Stewart? That is per Martha's daughter, anyway. I do not think my daughter would ever say such nasty things about me. Maybe Martha didn't sew enough costumes for her daughter. Hmmm.
