Happy October!

"Pumpkin Princess" Watercolor
Fall is my favorite season, and I adore Halloween, but I haven't really been getting into the fall feeling. Apparently it's weather triggered. Right now in Nashville, it feels like the glorious early summer days of the northwest. So, instead of the jacket and boots below pictured, I'm still wearing sequiny skirts and bright colors.
While my watercolors were out, however, and I was in a fashiony sort of mood, I thought I'd render an idea I had last Halloween time when there seemed to be bubble skirts all around. Some day I will be making this dress for Halloween and finding some way to convince my hair to be orangeish and curly. Someday I will also be the gotharina that I did last year, I've already been the black widow several times (I had a good hat for it). This year, it's off to Disney World with a villain theme, so Captain Hook it is! I will have some posts on the costume making process, especially of G's costume which includes what is going to be a rather fabulous and time-consuming cane.

I would wear that. When you move back to Seattle, we should have a Halloween masquerade ball. It could be a benefit. We'd charge admission to cover the costs and give the proceeds away.
