International Dress-Up Day #004 Theme!

The theme for International Dress-Up Day #004, this Saturday the 19th, is FILM NOIR.

NoirMuse suggested “femme fatale” but since I don’t want to exclude men, I thought film noir was a bit more all-encompassing!

“We’d be oversimplifying things in calling film noir oneiric, strange, erotic, ambivalent & cruel…” — Borde & Chaumeton

I am very excited about wearing my wig, cat’s eye glasses, high heels & a pencil skirt! I am also, of course, looking forward to seeing the participants’ photos!
