I've been working on my Halloween costume all day and am so excited about how it turned out! I found the most spectacular black Gunne Sax dress at Goodwill and it fit like a glove. I altered it today and have transformed it into a the perfect little number for a 1920's circus performer. I am working on a headpiece and already have the perfect shoes. I will admit, I've been ridiculously obsessed with all things old-time circus lately... it began with me watching Carnivale and moved onto me reading Water For Elephants and ordering Step Right This Way (The circus photography of Richard Kelty). I'll be spending Halloween evening at Slabtown watching The Silent Numbers performance... and I'll definitely post pictures when I have them!
