Daily Outfit — Hallowe’en Eve 2008

Latex nun

Last night I went to a hallowe’en party hosted by Mariah Carey. On the down side, it was lame. On the plus side, my outfit was awesome. If I do say so myself.

It was almost impossible to get good photos of it though, as you can see. Believe me, we tried!

Why yes, I was cold! I had also never worn latex before. It is an arduous process, involving lots of baby powder (which you have to coat your body with to get the dress on), crazy shimmying antics (to actually get into it) & rubbing the entire thing with liquid silicon to make it shiny. It also feels like you’re wearing a swimming cap. & it makes a funny noise when you walk.

Tonight I am going to wear something that doesn’t involve catching pneumonia in the name of dressing up! How about you? What are your plans for hallowe’enie?

Quote Of The Day — 25th October 2008

“It doesn’t get easier to tell the truth. It always gets harder. The deeper you go, the harder it gets. The great revolution of women writing honestly about their lives, their sexual and emotional selves, quickly ossified into convention and was co-opted by formula-writers. Female pain and female sexuality became commonplace. Danger became safe. Risk […]
