…but you can’t take the urge to obsess over every last detail when heading out to a costume themed party out of the girl…or something like that.
I’m sitting here getting ready for a 1920’s Speakeasy party tonight, and as I construct my headpiece and file my nails into a rounded point and paint them the perfect shade of red, it is glaringly obvious that I have spent part of my life as a costume designer.
I may not be my profession anymore, give me a theme; a time-period; a character and I will go just a little bit crazy. Like, not one person at this party will see what undergarments I am wearing, but you better be damn sure they are as close to period as I could get them. And you know I was watching Downton Abbey this past week with a much closer eye to try to get my jewelry and hairstyle inspiration from the best.
Well, this may have to do with the actor side of me, but I like to fully commit to my character. Which is also why I have named my alter ego tonight. And since no one has actually seen her, I figured I could take liberty with my design….
Mabel Lane Fox will be visiting the States tonight with some girlfriends to help her get over her recent split from her fiance…at least until I get tired of doing an accent.
