with god as my witness, i WILL be leia tink for halloween!

Posted in halloween costumes, poll, SWW on October 2, 2008 by sambycat

ok, so for a gamillion reasons, i can no longer go to the TOT race and MNSSHP as i had hoped this year. BUT i have possibly two events for which i could bust out the halloween costume deal. plus, i do need to be prepared for any sudden SWW visitation next year. it could happen.

so heres the deal. you’ve seen the inspiration:

so, given that, what do you think is the best leia “base” costume to build off of?

the choices:

a) this one gives the whole “sexy tink” edge built right in, and i was debating modifying a leia dress to have the tink length jagged edged skirt to convey the tink vibe. this comes with the brown wig, but not the awesome firepower or freaky go go boots.


b)a more classic leia, albeit with a scary wax mannequin model that frightens me. i think this comes with a brown wig. i think this is like 10 bucks cheaper too.


c)  NOT! although perhaps i could risk life and limb to have maggie do this:  and maggies is on sale!!!


also is the question of either getting the costume that has the brown wig (but no bangs) and trying to spray color it yellow OR buy a whole nother wig with bangs and try to style that cheap mess into bilateral buns.

i feel white boots – the go go ones might work just fine – but i need a proportionately sized green tink puff and of course wings.

what do you think? oh, and NO, i don’t sew!

if you

were at SWW – then you know why this makes me laugh every time i go to log on the new electronic medical record system at work..

can you say HOOPLA?!?!?!!

meet the real ashley!

i say the “real” ashley, becase the TDC trio lunched at le cellier that afternoon and our server was either named sara and had on a nametag that said ashley or vice versa, but i digress…

miss ashley, above, was working the photo pass beat during our SWW. she was, as you would expect, super helpful, and took some great photos of jenn, the watchamacallit and myself with the photo pass and on my camera as well. i noticed first that her name tag is from kentucky.

“where is lueville (LOO-ville)?” i asked (near whoville?). she laughed and explained… she said she told the name tag making people where she was from, and thats what they wrote.

as one who lived in louisville for a few years, i can attest to the fact that, phonetically, her nametag is probably correct. my usual phone conversations would go something like this:


“..(blah blah blah).. [phonetic pronunciation emphasis mine] LOO-UH-VULL”





“can you spell that?”


UPDATE: was i EVER that young???

please don’t stop the music!
