So I’m really not one of those folks who gets uber excited about Halloween and what sort of costume I can make/sew/conjure/create…I’m just not 1. that crafty or 2. really that interested. All you folks out there who can create amazing costumes and totally bring Halloween to life, I tip my hat to you.
It was sheer anxiety the last month or so in the Vizuete/Kaffenberger household becasue the magazine I work for was holding its 2nd annual halloween/Patron Party and I had to go. The horror of it all, let me tell you. So after multiple days of staring at the laptop looking for “couple’s costumes”, I was just about to throw in the towel when I decided to take a little break. One morning, at about 4.15 (my husband works way too early every other week and I somehow manage to wake myself up at the same time as him) as I was staring at my ceiling wide awake, it came to me: Julia Child!!
Yes my friends, I went as Julia Child. I thought I pulled it off pretty well (well, other than being hispanic and really brown because of our beach weekend and I’m only 5ft 6…and a half) but alas, I did not gauge my audience and a lot of people kept looking at me like I was the one catering the party.
Oh well. It was fun creating the costume and especially a great memory as both my husband and father helped me put it all together.
Here’s to better luck next year. Maybe…
