It Was Only A Halloween Tale

Published by at 4:36 pm under Blog,Night Out

No, I’m not telling another existential horror story. Your bejaysus will remain inside you, unscared.


I was thinking, firstly about how strange a time Halloween is, how people behave differently, dressing up and embracing the macabre, and that led me to thinking about other times and festivals throughout the year – the chocfest of Easter, the romaniticed February 14th, the consumer mad joydom of Christmas. We’re a mad lot really!


But surely that’s what life is all about – embracing the wild and mad, the good and bad, the happy times and sad. Tonight, we’re going to the Rocky Horror showing in the Sugar Club and…what will I be wearing?


Yesterday, I tried on six different types of high heeled shoe in Miss Fantasia’s on South William Street, including knee high hooker boots. Last night, to try out my costume, I wore Lottie‘s fishnet tights and corset. I wore suspenders!!! How’s that for embracing the mad?


I have brought a more conservative outfit with me too, in case I chicken out -0 the thoughts of being seen in public looking like Frank N Furter frightens the funk out of me. But we’ll see…


The Rocky Horror Picture Show


What’s everyone else doing this weekend?

    The R.H.P.S. *shudder* holds dodgy memories for me. I went years ago and had my civility stolen when I wasn’t looking.

    I spent the weekend trying to calm children who were peaking on too much sugar, and hoping my eardrums would survive.

    I dressed up as myself as I was the day before 🙂 Imaginative, me.

    @GM Have you seen the pics yet? Check out Lottie’s site.

    @Julie Ha! 😆 Don’t worry – it’s not a regular thing.

    @K8 So that’s what happened you? 😉

    @RP You floated more than my boat. 🙂

    @Paddy It’s not bravery – it’s alcohol.
