On Saturday night, I went over to Glinda and Fiero's for their annual Halloween party - costumes required!
I'm typically not big on costumes. Not that I don't like them, I just don't typically think of them enough ahead of time to get all of the pieces at a reasonable price. And I'm not very crafty, so I end up with something boring.
Though, two years ago, at the last minute, I made a white sash with black writing that said, "Understood." I wore an old bridesmaid dress and a tiara with the sash, and I got second place in the costume contest.
This year, Glinda and I were shopping at Charming Charlie's sometime in the summer and we found a headband with a little hat thing. And right then and there, I decided that I would be Effie Trinket for Halloween.
I did procrastinate a little more than I should have, but it all came together nicely.
This was my inspiration:
This was my costume:
McKayla Maroney (Glinda) is not impressed with Effie Trinket...
I won the contest this year!
