Happy Thursday Swimwear and Lingerie Freaks!

It’s almost Halloween and I haven’t even cracked open a box of candy yet!!! Usually by this time, our household is on its third round of candy and we’re posting signs on the boxes that say; “DO NOT TOUCH CANDY BEFORE HALLOWEEN OR WE WILL BE THE HOUSE THAT HAS TO GIVE OUT RAISINS AND WE WILL GET EGGED AND YOU WILL HAVE TO SCRAPE THE SIDING CLEAN!!!”

No candy for you, Two Years!!!

I love Halloween, the candy, the costumes, the threats… such happy memories.

I SAID DON'T TOUCH THE CANDY!!!! sheesh

So I’ve figured out my lingerie costume, as you saw on Monday’s Post; Hallowe’en Accessories from Ophelia Fancy!. Now I just need to figure out my evening/public costume.

I’m thinking that I’d like to wear something that won’t involve much changing for me to transition into the lingerie costume. Tights and stockings are pretty much an awesome way to accentuate any kind costume. They’re the perfect finishing touch that just seems to complete an ensemble. But just imagine how phenomenal your costume could be, if you started with the tights and went from there…. right?

Check out this hosiery from Cervin don’t they look like a Barber Poll? {and I am totally lusting after those shoes… anyone know where they’re from? Gah, they’re just so pretty!}

I love them! I could see myself wearing these if I were going as a Grecian column with vines winding all around me, or better yet as a weird windey witch. WINDEY witch, not flatulent, winding around my legs… sheesh, way to kill the fun of that costume.

Sadly, Falke didn’t have anything inspiring… shame on them for not getting into the spirit of things!

How about these awesome Wolford Bonny Dots Stay Up stockings?

Pretty awesome right? So for these stockings you could totally accent a cheetah or leopard costume, mini mouse or better yet an adult with chicken pox! Awesome right? Just draw dots on the rest of your body and pretend… that you have… a contagious and kinda gross disease. Huh. Didn’t really think that one through, did I? Besides, most adults get shingles instead of chickenpox and THAT my friends is nothing to giggle at. Hurts like Hades!

Ummm, okay, what about these cool Wolford stockings? They’re called the Wolford Wilderness Stay-Ups and they would definitely set the mood if you wanted to be a zebra or pretend that you were a tree, cause they look kind of like bark right?

What d’you mean my costume ideas suck? They’re awesome? What are you going to be? some kind of sexy fairy or a sexy pirate or a sexy devil… how come women always have to be something sexy?

{yes, yes, I DO realize that this entire post has been about incorporating stockings and hosiery into Halloween costumes, but c’mon… MY ideas involved covering up a bit more than this, and at least had some imagination! Kinda, sorta… twisted as it is…}

I think Lindsay Lohan had the right idea in Mean Girls:

I may just be a tree after all… could have some fun with that! What are you doing for your costume? Anything interesting? Let me know, inspire me so I don’t have to go with my Grecian column idea. PLEASE.

Cheers,
