It would be my best friend Gidge you drags me thoroughly and completely out of my comfort zone with her challenge cause she’s wicked like that. Her exact brief was: “OK then, Now I want to see you do ultramodern. Sleek, metallic….not inhuman…….SUPERHUMAN……” I suppose I could have gone to a costume shop and bought the Silver Surfer, but that would not honor the spirit of these challenges, so I went to the Fashion Oracle, Sasy Scarborough. It took her less than 15 seconds to suggest this very Trilobite Cat Suit and she even knew the price. Never doubt the power of the Oracle.
I was casting around for costume ideas last night, I got the brainstorm to go to Unique Needs. Now, I know it’s not a costume shop, it’s a clothing store for the BDSM subculture and has fashionable clothes for those shoppers. However, in my opinion, if you’re not part of a subculture and dress in the clothing of a subculture, that’s a costume. Besides, when I got there I discovered Unique Needs has a much broader range of clothing that I had assumed…including this romantic, frou-frou dress I am wearing today. Color me surprised and well, there again you see the danger of assumptions.
